Andy Cohen is an executive producer on 'RHONJ.'

“There was a bunch of casting news about Jersey that was reported today. None of it is true. No decisions have been made. We haven’t even had any serious conversations about next season,” Cohen, 56, shared.

The Watch What Happens Live host added that any reporting on RHONJ casting in the next “six months is fake, so don’t believe it.”

The rumors around the show began after it was confirmed the cast would not have a “traditional” reunion for Season 14.

Cohen explained fans “will understand” why showrunners decided to nix the reunion once the finale airs.

“The finale is epic, and it’s great, and I’m excited for everyone to see it, and we all came to the same understanding after watching it, so I don’t think it’ll be a big surprise,” he added.

Earlier this month, the news broke that the women's feuds would prevent filming a normal ending to the season.

Following the insider’s claims, Cohen confirmed the reunion change on SiriusXM’s Reality Checked, sharing that producers were taking “time” to figure out how to move forward.

“Right now, we’re just kind of focusing on, ‘OK, well, if we’re not doing a conventional reunion, what are we doing and what is something different that we could do?’” he stated.

“Things take time, and we want to take a minute to figure things out. There’s no point in rushing into something just to rush into something,” Cohen continued.
