Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will not be joining The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but even Andy Cohen can agree that it’s not a totally crazy idea. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/9c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Rumors that the Jersey Shore star could be joining the cast were recently squashed by Snooki herself in a September 16 Instagram comment. “Idk how this started but I have not been asked to be a Housewife. Sowwyyyyy,” Snooki wrote. The news was disappointing to Melissa Gorga, who said, “Damn it!” in response to the revelation. 

Andy weighed in on the rumors on Live with Kelly and Ryan later that day, explaining that "at no time soon would that happen.”

According to Andy, this isn’t the first time the rumors of Snooki becoming a RHONJ cast member have popped up over the last few years. 

“It’s always something that I’ve kind of discounted. I’ve thought, it’s two different shows—I don’t see it,” Andy told Kelly Ripa. “I know some of the women actually know her, and I will say watching your show this morning and hearing it come out of your mouth, it kind of legitimized it in a way."
