Many viewers have noticed that this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is going by really fast. Well, let me tell you, this season only has thirteen episodes. That’s right, a network insider is exclusively revealing to us why this season is such a short one.
“Production ran out of budget,” our source shares. “They are wanting to start filming next season in March, so they can film the women during a different time of year.”
But that’s not the only reason this year is a short season: “The women also took two cast trips this season,” our insider explains. “That is why they ran out of their budget so quickly. But season nine will begin in March.”
UPDATE: A second insider tells us that the season is short “because there is too much footage that they cannot use due to legal issues.”
