Let the drama commence. BravoCon 2022 made its triumphant return in New York City on Friday, October 14, and the tea on everything from the Real Housewives franchise to Below Deck was being spilled all weekend long.
During the Housewife 2 Housewife panel on Friday, Jennifer Aydin offered a glimpse at what viewers can expect from season 13 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“There’s of course a lot of drama and there’s also some sad aspects to it, as we all know,” she shared while being joined by Cynthia Bailey, Candiace Dillard-Bassett, Lisa Hochstein, Caroline Stanbury and Sutton Stracke on stage. “But it’s also very funny.”
Aydin, 45, noted that it was a “f–king spectacular season” to bring to life, adding, “We have a few new players in the group.” However, she teased, “I’m not naming names.”
The filming update comes after Teresa Giudice‘s relationship with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and brother Joe Gorga made headlines amid their feud. Melissa and Joe, both 43, raised eyebrows when they announced their decision not to attend Giudice’s August wedding to Luis Ruelas.
“Obviously, we did not attend your sister’s wedding. We have a laundry list right of reasons in our heads [of] why and I will let all my listeners know this — obviously, there was something that went down at the finale of filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” the singer revealed on her “On Display” podcast that same month. “Those exact details, I obviously cannot say today. Anything that we have filmed is something that I am not able to talk about.”
Us Weekly confirmed at the time that cheating allegations led to the fallout. “One of the secrets was Melissa making out with this guy while she was on a press tour in the city,” a source exclusively told Us about the alleged gossip being spread about Melissa. “This ‘rumor’ was something that Teresa had known about for over a year and had been pushing for it to come out. Finally, the finale was perfect timing.”
A second insider revealed that Melissa was “blindsided” by the rumor, saying, “Teresa may not forgive Joe after this and vice versa.”
Amid the drama, the trio seemingly were not able to make amends as the RHONJ panel was split into several rounds at BravoCon. The first panel will feature Jackie Goldschneider, Melissa, Joe, Margaret Josephs, Evan Goldschneider and Joe Benigno on Friday. The second panel, which will take place on Saturday, October 15, will include Jennifer, Bill Aydin, Dolores Catania, Giudice, 50, Frank Catania and Ruelas, 47.
Meanwhile, Bailey, 55, also chose the convention weekend to address her personal life. Following her split from Mike Hill, the Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip star opened up about the next chapter for her.
Bailey was married to Hill for two years before announcing their breakup. “While we both will always have love for one another, we have decided to go our separate ways,” the former couple said in a joint statement to Us on Wednesday, October 12. “We are grateful that we remain good friends, and will always cherish the many memories we’ve shared together as husband and wife.”
The statement continued: “Many of you have been on this journey with us from the very beginning, and we appreciate our family, friends and beloved fans for your positive support as we move forward and start new chapters. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes!”
