In a series of posts shared to her Instagram Stories during a Q&A with her fans and followers, Michelle confirmed her exit from the Bravo reality show before explaining the reason behind her departure and speaking of her “own show.”
“Why don’t you post about you being on RHONJ?” a fan asked Michelle on April 16, via a series of screenshots shared by the Real Housewives Franchise on Instagram.
“Because I didn’t enjoy filming or the show. That experience wasn’t what I expected,” she explained.
Then, a second fan wondered, “Why didn’t you like being on RHONJ?”
Michelle responded that there was “too much drama.”
“I had a hard time relating. I wasn’t in my element,” she stated.
In another post, after being asked, “Will you be returning on RHONJ,” Michelle mentioned a new show.
“No we are not,” she responded. “We are in the middle of filming for our own show. Stay tuned.”
“She did film a fair amount. She came in with a lot of drama [and] started off really, really wanting to be on the show. I’m not sure what happened along the way,” Jackie admitted.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 11 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
