Watch: Why Andy Cohen Lost His "S--t" at RHONJ Reunion Taping

These Jersey girls nearly pushed Andy Cohen to his breaking point.

The Watch What Happens Live host revealed the drama between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga got so heated during The Real Housewives of New Jersey's season 13 reunion taping on April 20 that he nearly stormed off set.

"I've gotta tell you, the level—I won't even say vitriol, I will say hate—between Teresa and Melissa," Andy said of the feuding sisters-in-law on the April 24 episode of his SiriusXM radio show Andy Cohen Live. "The gloves are off. I've never seen anything like it. And the way the two of them were going back and forth, it was that thing of neither wanted the other to have the last word in any petty fight."

He noted their bickering got so bad, he struggled to regain control of moderating the discussion. The Bravo host, who was "so annoyed" by their antics, added, "I almost walked off at one point."

In fact, Andy said he lost his temper with Teresa, prompting him to say sorry to the O.G. cast member later in the taping.

"There was a moment where I turned to Teresa—I apologized to her later," the 54-year-old continued. "I didn't yell at her, but I think I lost my s--t with her in a way that I haven't maybe ever."

According to Andy, "there were a lot of new allegations being made" and "there was a lot of new material" from both Teresa and Melissa, who have been at odds since Melissa and husband Joe Gorga declined to attend his sister's August 2022 wedding to Luis "Louie" Ruelas.

Andy promised RHONJ fans the episodes will be "very compelling television," calling the reunion—which took nine hours to film—"monumental and upsetting." 

"I guzzled two tequilas after that reunion," Cohen shared, adding he didn't fully process the explosiveness until early the next day. "I sent the longest email at about 4:15 in the morning to all the producers with all my thoughts on the reunion, suggestions."

On the April 11 episode of the Bravo series, Teresa's involvement in a cheating rumor about Melissa came to light, with Melissa later revealing plans to skip her and Louie's wedding.

See the drama continue to play out when The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo. Andy Cohen Live airs Mondays through Fridays at 10 a.m. ET on SiriusXM.
