Frank Catania appeared on a podcast this week, where he shockingly confirmed Jackie Goldschneider‘s demotion.
Following a string of rumors claiming Jackie was downgraded ahead of production The real housewives of New Jersey In Season 13, Frank revealed that she was actually downgraded to a “friend” role. He also shared where Traci Lynn Johnson stands by the series after it was cut from the Season 12 reunion.
“I didn’t know exactly. [But] I had dinner with Jackie the other night and [Evan Goldschneider] and yes, I heard yes, she’s a friend of,” Frank confirmed on the May 23 episode The morning toast podcast.
According to Frank, he often finds that fans know more about the show than he does.
“Nobody tells us anything. Nobody tells us. Apparently we have some new girls this year. I don’t know,” he admitted.
But he does know that Traci was reportedly fired after starring in a “girlfriend” role for just one season.
“I heard Traci’s gone. But at the same time, I have to be honest, Jackie, who I’ve heard might come back. We don’t know anything about Traci. So nothing is final,” Frank continued.
Though Jackie has confirmed her destiny with Frank, he felt she had a “great season.”
“She didn’t just come out with me [her] Eating disorder, which I know wasn’t easy, but at the same time… Look, I know one thing I shouldn’t hold against Dolores because I’ve seen what Dolores can do. But Jackie stood up to Dolores,” he explained. “Look at how Jackie has evolved over the time she’s been on the show. She got to the point as a shy little bunny where she now speaks her mind, she came out with an eating disorder… I like Jackie.
When the podcast’s host then noted that Jackie was “just getting started.” RHONJFrank agreed, saying he “thought the same thing”.
While Jackie has yet to confirm the rumors herself, she apparently responded to Frank’s reveal on Instagram with a cryptic post.
“The comeback is always stronger than the rebound,” Jackie wrote, along with a 100 percent emoji.
The real housewives of New Jersey Season 13 began filming earlier this month.
