Melissa Gorga Says RHONJ Fans Might Find the Upcoming Season "Sometimes Hard to Watch"

During an exclusive BravoCon 2022 interview with several Bravo kids, Dolores Catania's son Frankie Catania Jr. showed up to the discussion looking incredibly cool behind a pair of dark aviator sunglasses. His reason for rocking the new look was actually less about style and more about a hapless incident. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

"So, unfortunately I had an allergic reaction last night [and] my whole eye has swelled up horribly," The Real Housewives of New Jersey son stated during the interview.

Oh no! Even with the minor mishap, Frankie still looked as handsome as ever, with adoring Bravoholics stopping the RHONJ son at various points throughout the weekend to snap a selfie. 

Of course, there was lots more RHONJ-related tea to come out of the weekend. During a BravoCon panel titled "Jersey Ladies and Their Men," Melissa Gorga and Margaret Josephs teased an epic, fiery Season 13. 

"I think it’s a season that’s very telling," Melissa shared. "Jersey has, and I will say this, the most loyal fans of any franchise. You guys invest with us—and we appreciate that—with our families and kids. You know our children’s names. We really give it our all. It’s not just about a group of friends. It’s deep, it’s family and the Jersey fans are hardcore and they’re amazing and I think they’re gonna like this season."

Margaret then added that more drama was on the way for her and Jennifer Aydin. "I made up with her genuinely. She, this year, she did not make up with me genuinely," the Caviar Dreams, Tuna Fish Budget author said. "She had it in for me. I’ll leave it at that. You guys will watch this season."
