Andy Cohen stated in an interview that the next season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey it has division with Teresa Guidice on the one hand and Melissa Gorga on the other, but this trend will not be “sustainable” in the future. Nneka's relentless attempts to provoke Wendy with one problem after another, all of which fell flat, contributed significantly to her lack of deserving another season in The Real Housewives of Potomac.
