REAL Housewives of New Jersey’s Melissa Gorga claimed there’s one major star who Andy Cohen won’t ever let joining the show.
The 42-year-old opened up about the future of her Bravo series, and who fans should stop expecting to see on it, during the latest episode of her On Display podcast.

Aside from the onscreen drama that goes on during RHONJ episodes, the casting for the show is also a major talking point for fans.
Viewers often are left wondering ahead of new seasons who’s leaving, who’s joining, and who won’t ever be allowed to come on.
According to Melissa, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi falls into the final categor.
After podcast guest Danny Pellegrino asked if fans might ever see the Jersey Shore star become a cast member, Melissa said they shouldn’t hold their breath.
Though the two are “friends,” the mother-of-three claimed boss Andy doesn’t want her on the series.
“[He] gives her such a hard no,” Melissa said. “He’s just like, ‘Don’t even say it.’”

She continued: “Whenever I would go to him and be like ‘Hello! She’s married now, she has three kids, she lives around the block. She’s great for this, I think,’ and he just looks at me like ‘No.’”
“He is just not having it,” the RHONJ star added.
Not wanting to completely slam Andy’s alleged refusal to consider Snooki, Melissa revealed she does kind of understand where he’s coming from.
“To his defense, they typically do not like to cast other people who have already been on a different reality show,” she said.
The 42-year-old explained: “They prefer to find an authentic lady living in New Jersey with a crazy life an a Bentley.”
Luckily there doesn’t seem to be any hard feelings on Snooki’s end, as she’s expressed disinterest in joining the Housewives franchise, anyway.
She told Page Six: “I’m terrified because some of those girls … they get into it.
“Even though I’m on a reality show, I hate drama.
“I like positivity and I like just having a good time and going home.
“I just feel like that would be wild.”
Still, the Jersey Shore star recently claimed that Andy doesn’t even want her anywhere on Bravo.
Melissa brought their conversation about it back up, saying on her recent podcast: “You know what she said to me when she was on my show?
“That he won’t even accept her for Watch What Happens Live anymore. So, I don’t know.”
