Teresa Giudice is here to stay.
During the Jan. 4 episode of her podcast with Melissa Pfeister, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” OG addressed the rumors that season 13 would be her last on the hit Bravo show. “That’s not true,” she said to her “Namaste B$tches‘ Co-host emphatically.
She said the rumors were spread by some of her RHONJ co-stars and she knew exactly who was behind it. “These are haters,” she said. “These are other housewives on my TV show who are posting this. Of course I know who it is. So they’re releasing this because… I know exactly who it is.” Giudice described the situation as “crazy,” telling Pfeister that there are many false stories that have been planted in the press by other RHONJ cast members.
“It’s so sad, so sad,” she shared. “Everyone will see the truth of who’s behind it all in Season 13.”
Giudice then said that the decision on who stays and leaves each season is up to Bravo alone, but reiterated that it was not her intention to leave. “I started the show, so … I’m not going until Bravo wants me to go,” she concluded.

Teresa Giudice said she hasn’t enjoyed being on TV as much since her family joined RHONJ
Giudice made similar comments in a recent interview with People, when she told the publication she would never leave RHONJ because she “started the show”. She said the rumors about her departure were spread by other people as “games”.
Despite her decision to stay, Giudice said she didn’t enjoy being on TV as much as she did before her family got involved. As RHONJ fans well know, Giudice’s brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga joined the hit Bravo show in Season 3. Giudice described feeling “ambushed” when they joined, telling People, “Here I am, just getting my feet wet and enjoying it and then bam. I get smitten, really stabbed in the heart when my family comes on the show behind my back.
She said it was a very “traumatic” moment, which is why she’s still dealing with it to this day. Giudice added that it was never her intention to be on TV with her family and RHONJ was her own thing before that. “It was something new for me, and it was like my job, and I was excited, and then all of a sudden I’m being bombed and mugged by my family,” she spilled. “And it was very sad because I felt like my dream was shattered.”
In the 13th season of RHONJ, a major rift develops between Teresa Giudice and the Gorgas
The rift between Giudice and the Gorgas will be a big theme in season 13 as fans watched the family’s fallout this summer as cameras rolled.
Things came to a head when Joe and Melissa Gorga announced they would not be attending Giudice’s wedding to Luis Ruelas in August 2022, and family members have since snapped shots in interviews.
Season 13 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres February 7 at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Time on Bravo.
