The 12th season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is coming to an end and fans are already looking forward to the reunion which was filmed in March 2022.
This season, Bravo introduced a new “friend of” to the series, getting Traci Johnson to join the ladies in their dramatic dinners, parties and travels. However, fans didn’t like Johnson and many are hoping she won’t be part of the cast for another season.
While the network is yet to make any announcement about the franchise’s future, there have been some rumors that the full-time cast will return – although it’s unclear if Johnson will be brought back, fired or replaced.
Here’s what you need to know:
A Blind claims the full-time cast will return for season 13
1 blind on April 6, 2022 published by Bravo and Cocktails claimed that all RHONJ stars would be back for another season. However, the anonymous source was certain the “full-time ladies” would return – and made no mention of Johnson.
“Rumor has it that the ever-popular Garden State Show will have the same full-time ladies next season. A few women managed to save themselves when they met again,” the blind man read. The source went on to say that producers may shake things up when it comes to the Friend Of roles.
“We’ve also heard they’re trying out a few girlfriends, one from each ‘side’, maybe they’ll work, but try as they might they haven’t found good full-time ladies in a few years. The ratings, they speak for themselves, they’ve learned from RHONY and the OC, don’t mess up anything good,” the blind man continued.
On April 13, 2022 was another blind published by Bravo and Cocktails. This time around, a source claimed that filming for season 13 would begin in June 2022, but “no deals” have been signed yet. The source added that there are two women – a friend of Margaret Josephs and a Teresa Giudice – who are being considered for part-time roles.
Fans took to Reddit to express their disapproval of Johnson
A Reddit thread Asking Bravo to “please get rid of Traci Johnson” was launched on April 12, 2022. Several RHONJ fans commented on the thread, with many expressing similar feelings toward Johnson.
“She’s ruining this series for me, honestly, so desperate and thirsty and her 10 minutes are really up. Please and thank you Andy,” the original poster commented.
“She has the personality of a sack of potatoes. nobody,” added a second person.
“What a jerk, but she’s Melissa’s friend who must have taught her to let her husband do all the heavy lifting.” someone else wrote.
“I will never respect her for what she did to Tiki’s ex-wife (no apologies to Tiki, he’s an asshole for the role too). Plus she’s so damn boring! She seems to be an absolute pick-me-girl.” read a fourth comment.
In another Reddit thread Launched April 2022, similar comments were written.
Interestingly, some people don’t care about Johnson one way or another and seem to understand that it’s her first season. While the majority of fans admit she’s “boring,” several Redditors don’t believe she needs to be fired from the network.
“It doesn’t add much, but it doesn’t bother me either. I think there has to be a more “faint” HW in every franchise…as a foil, so to speak.” A Reddit user commented.
“I’m not mad at her, there’s a lot worse, but she’s quite unforgettable.” added another.
