Another original cast member of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is saying ciao to the popular Bravo reality show. Caroline Manzo, the no-nonsense matriarch of the Manzo clan, is reported to be leaving RHONJ after five seasons filled with drama, catfights and wine-fueled hot tub parties.
Manzo and her family have been around since the beginning, starring with her sister Dina Manzo and sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita, as well as Danielle Staub and Teresa Guidice. Dina and Danielle had previously left the show, and with Caroline’s departure, only two of the original housewives will remain.
Don’t start crying yet, though. The Manzo clan hasn’t peaced out yet, and there’s still plenty of Caroline and her tough talk to go around. Bravo hasn’t confirmed that Manzo is leaving RHONJ, and they did announce earlier this month that her family has been busy taping a spin-off. The new show, called Manzo’d with Children, will star Manzo and her three grown children. Caroline’s sister, Fran, will be another regular on the show. The pilot episode takes us into day-to-day life at the Manzo house and Caroline’s responsibilities as the “ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family.” Oh boy. Full episodes of just the Manzos? This could get interesting. Manzo’d with Children hasn’t been picked up yet, but if it is, Caroline will be the first New Jersey Housewife to land her own series on Bravo. I’m sure the other Housewives won’t be at all jealous, right?
Teresa Guidice is the housewife most likely to be jealous of Caroline’s spin-off, but with her current legal issues, Bravo probably isn’t looking to film near a New Jersey jail!
So what do you think about Caroline Manzo’s exit from The Real Housewives of New Jersey? Will you miss her words of wisdom and her mama bear attitude? Will you watch Manzo’d with Children? Tell us about it in the comments.
