Watch: Andy Cohen Was "Butthurt" at the Way His John Mayer Comments Were Spun

Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga's feud may have come to a head this season—but Andy Cohen isn't exactly flipping a table over it.

After Real Housewives of New Jersey fans watched the two face off in their most intense argument yet, tension between the pair seemed to only worsen during the explosive reunion, which ended with Teresa severing ties with her brother Joe Gorga and his wife for good.

Though this chapter proved to be a turning point, not everyone is drawing a line in the sand for the future.

"I thought there was something very refreshing about them this season co-existing to the point of everyone realizing how much they hated each other," the Watch What Happens Live host told E! News in an exclusive interview. "But they were around each other, so I think they can co-exist."

Though Andy explained the reunion ended on a "pretty negative" note, there's always hope for better days.

"We'll see," he shared of the show's future. "I don't know, but we'll see."

Teresa Giudice's Season 13 Feud With the Gorgas: A Complete Timeline

With this past season of RHONJ out of the way—and that Vanderpump Rules reunion—the 55-year-old deserves a relaxing summer.

Which, for him, includes Fresca, which is why he recently partnered with the brand for their Summer Sweepstakes.


"It's been no secret that I have been a huge fan of Fresca and I'm the no. 1 Fresca Mixed fan," he shared. "There's a Vodka Spritz Variety pack out and I'm excited to spread the word about that."

But don't except him to spill anything else. After all, he's one of Hollywood's best secret keepers.

"Maybe it's just my reputation that I get things out of people," he told E! of why he's often bending an ear. "Maybe they feel a certain ease of, 'Well if everyone else is telling him everything, maybe I should.' I'm not questioning it, I'm just listening."

In between sips, he also plans to kick back this summer with his kids Benjamin, 4, and Lucy, 13 months.

"I just spent several years building a dream house on the beach and it's finally done, so I'm going to be spending a lot of time with my family out there," he noted. "That's my big plan. I'm staying local, staying in my new house and just want to experience the summer with them."
