Andy Cohen Promises ‘RHONJ’ Finale Will Satisfy Fans Despite Cancelled Reunion

Shortly after the news broke that The Real Housewives of New Jersey (RHONJ) would not be having a traditional reunion for the first time in its history, Andy Cohen discussed the decision on SiriusXM’s Reality Checked with Kiki Monique.

Cohen explained, “I do want to give some context to the announcement over the weekend that there was gonna be no Jersey reunion because I feel like there are a lot of theories about what this could mean.” He reassured fans that everything will make sense once they see the finale.

The Real Housewives executive producer hinted that the season 14 finale will be a “classic” episode that will be talked about for a long time. The producers, after seeing the final cut, independently agreed that “the finale is kind of the finale and the reunion all in one.”

In typical Jersey fashion, Cohen teased that the finale is full of shocking and dramatic moments. He compared the final group encounter to “The Last Supper,” emphasising its epic and quintessentially Jersey nature. He promised that the episode would be amazing TV, filled with drama and surprises.

Cohen assured viewers that despite the absence of a traditional reunion, they will “feel complete” after watching the finale. He also hinted that the network was planning something special to replace the reunion episode, although details have yet to be announced.

The only other time a reunion was cancelled in the Real Housewives franchise was during season 13 of The Real Housewives of New York City. For season 14, the network rebooted the series with an entirely new cast, letting go of all the season 13 ladies in the process.

An insider said that “everything and anything is on the table,” with all options being discussed for the show’s future. Nothing official has been decided yet, leaving fans eagerly awaiting the next steps for RHONJ.
