The occasional voice of reason on The Real Housewives of New Jersey has officially had enough of reality TV. In a recent blog post, Caroline Manzo confirmed the rumors, explaining to fans that she is definitely finished with the Real Housewives franchise.
Last week, when Caroline Manzo appeared on the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, we suspected that it might be the last time we saw her join in on the annual parade of gaudy dresses and pricey shoes. Turns out, those suspicions were correct! In what may be her final blog post for Bravo, Caroline announced, “I have made the decision to leave The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
There are multiple reasons for Caroline Manzo’s Real Housewives departure, but chief among them may be sheer exhaustion from the never-ending drama. The reality star explained that, looking back on her many Bravo appearances, she no longer could be proud of what she saw on the television screen. “Over the past few years my outlook on the show has changed from something I couldn’t wait to show my future grandchildren to something I hope my future grandchildren never see.”
Caroline added that, based on the advice she’s given her children (you know, the usual “be yourselves” schtick), returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey would be the ultimate in hypocrisy. And in a refreshing admission, she confessed that it’s not all about scoring headlines or earning an impressive income. “For me, peace and integrity cannot be bought with money or fame.”
