Andy Cohen Hints At Rebooting Another Housewives Franchise After RHONY Reboot Premiere

After the successful premiere of the Real Housewives of New York City reboot, franchise creator Andy Cohen is hinting that more Housewives franchises could see a reboot in the not-so-distant future.

“Now that ‘RHONY’ has had such positive feedback, are you thinking about rebooting other franchises?” one fan asked Cohen on new social media app Threads.

The “Real Housewives” executive producer simply responded with a thinking face emoji.

Cohen’s simple answer instantly got picked up by several Bravo fan accounts, where fans flooded the comments with suggestions of franchises that need a facelift.

“RHONJ [‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’] needs a reboot! I’m so tired of the Melissa [Gorga] vs Teresa [Giudice] storyline,” one fan commented, referring to Gorga and Giudice’s seemingly never-ending feud.

“NEW JERSEY NEXT!!!!!!” another person echoed.

“As an RHOA [‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’] loyalist, start with them pls no shade,” one user requested.

“RHOA needs to bring back several cast members that have genuine relationships, or we need a whole reboot … this current group is coworkers + fake storylines,” another person chimed in.

“It’s honestly the inevitable future of the franchise. You can’t have successful shows with the same cast for 20 years lol,” one fan summed it up.

Cohen, 55, and Bravo famously made headlines in March 2022 when they announced they’d be completely recasting the beloved Big Apple franchise for Season 14.

The first episode of the reboot aired on Sunday night and followed the lives of six new women: Jenna Lyons, Sai De Silva, Erin Dana Lichy, Ubah Hassan, Brynn Whitfield and Jessel Taank.

Meanwhile, several of the longtime cast members – including Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan – got together to film a “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: RHONY Legacy” spin-off in St. Barts in June.

A premiere date for the new “RHUGT” has not been released, but the new “Real Housewives of New York City” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.

I echo the sentiments of the commenters. Since RHOA continues to circle the drain with poor ratings, and boring storylines, I say fire the entire cast and reboot the series with women who are actually friends and have actual careers in the ATL.

Another show I think should be rebooted is the Real Housewives of New Jersey. I know the word is that the entire cast is coming back because there was so many unanswered questions during the reunion that the entire cast was brought back to resolve their issues.

However, if the cast can't learn to get along, bury old feuds and bring the drama, then it may be time to scrap the family angle and reboot RHONJ with a new cast.
