RHONJ Needs More Substance

Am I the only one who is just annoyed at the way the last few seasons have played out? I get it that producers are looking for the most drama because it's entertaining, but I really miss the big family episodes and when they filmed around the holidays. All this "Lady Drama" stuff is so old and tiring since no one can ever just apologize and move on. For example, I was really looking forward to Antonia's Sweet 16, but now I'm not sure if they will even air any of it. I feel like this can be accomplished without even changing the cast.
