Andy Cohen has revealed he totally lost his cool and lashed out at Teresa Giudice while filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey's reunion show.

"I think I lost my sh-t with her in a way that I haven't maybe ever," the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host said during the April 24 episode of his SiriusXM radio show "Andy Cohen Live."

"It was a lot. There were a ton of new allegations being made."

In fact, Andy said he almost stormed out of The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Season 13 reunion taping on Thursday, April 20.

Andy apparently couldn't take the arguing between Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.

"There was a ton of new material to get into, which was good. We didn't spend a lot of time rehashing the past; we leaned into a lot of new stuff. But I gotta tell you, the level -- I won't even say 'vitriol,' I would just say hate between Teresa and Melissa. It's, I mean, the gloves are off," Andy recalled.

"I've never seen anything like it, the way the two of them were going back and forth."

Teresa and Melissa have been feuding ever since Melissa and her husband Joe Gorga decided not to attend Teresa's August 2022 wedding to Luis "Louie" Ruelas.

Andy explained that neither Teresa or Melissa "wanted the other to have the last word in any petty fight."

He added, "And no one hates it more than me because I'm trying to get control of the room! I almost walked off at one point."

Andy said the reunion took about 10 hours to film, with only a lunch and a couple of bathroom breaks in between.

"I guzzled two tequilas after that reunion -- guzzled!" Andy exclaimed.

Once the event was finally over, Andy admitted he woke up later in the night still haunted by the fighting that had taken place in front of him on the reunion stage.

"I woke up at 3:30AM with my head [spinning]. That's how long it took me then to process all of the sh-t I had heard going on. I sent the longest email at about 4:15AM to all the producers with all my thoughts on the reunion and my suggestions," Andy shared.

"I was not drunk. I was perfectly clear-headed, but I was kind of reliving everything that happened. It was all playing in my head."

Andy said what transpired at the reunion was just "too monumental and upsetting" to bounce back from. He therefore "had to let it sit" for a while.

"But the thing with the last word, there was a moment when I turned to Teresa and I apologized to her later. I didn't yell at her, but I think I lost my sh-t with her in a way that I haven't maybe ever," Andy confessed.

"I think [the dynamic] maybe relates to being the parent of a toddler."

The Real Housewives of New Jersey currently airs its thirteenth season Tuesday nights on Bravo, and Andy teased that some "very compelling television" is still to come.

Even though the show may be chaotic and stressful at times, Teresa, for her part, told People in December that she'll "never step away" from The Real Housewives of New Jersey because she "started the show."

Despite ongoing drama with Melissa and Joe Gorga, Teresa said at the time, "I'm never going to give that to anyone because I'm the one that started the show."

"Other people are trying to put that out there, like, 'Oh, Teresa wants to leave.' It's so crazy to me how people are trying to plant the seed that Teresa wants to leave the show... the games that people play," she continued.

Teresa reiterated, "I'm not walking away until Bravo wants me to walk away."

Teresa -- who competed on Dancing with the Stars' 31st season last year -- has been a mainstay on The Real Housewives of New Jersey since the show premiered on Bravo back in 2009.

When Teresa went to prison for 11 months in 2015, the show actually went on a production hiatus during her incarceration.

Teresa and her ex-husband Joe Giudice were sentenced to jail time in October 2014 after pleading guilty to 41 counts of financial fraud -- which included failure to pay taxes, hiding assets and submitting fake loan applications -- in March of that year.

After reaching a plea deal, Teresa was originally sentenced to 15 months in jail, while Joe got a whopping 41 months.

Teresa was released from prison at Danbury Federal Correctional Institution in Connecticut on December 23, 2015.

Teresa admitted late last year that her relationship with her brother and sister-in-law has been tense ever since they joined The Real Housewives of New Jersey "behind my back" for Season 3.

"Since my family came on the show, it was very hard for me to enjoy being on TV," Teresa said.

"Here I am, just getting my feet wet, enjoying it and then bam. I get knocked, really stabbed in the heart with my family coming on the show behind my back... It was very traumatic."

Teresa continued, "I never signed up to be on a TV show with my family. This was my thing. I was excited about it. It was something new for me, and it was like my job, and I was excited, and then all of a sudden I get bombarded and ambushed by my family. And it was very sad, because I felt like my dream kind of got shattered."
