Caroline Manzo Departing “RHONJ” After Five Seasons
Caroline Manzo is trading in her Real Housewife card for a shot at being the star of the show.
Radar Online reports that Manzo will not return to “Real Housewives of New Jersey” for season 6, instead choosing to focus on her previously announced spinoff, “Manzo’d with Children.”
The docuseries will focus on the mother of three’s relationship with her kids and her eccentric sister, Fran.
Negotiations are ongoing with the rest of the cast, with the embattled Teresa Giudice allegedly “desperate” to return for season 6, according to Radar.
“She and Joe are in such dire financial straits and they are doing everything they can to get money,” an insider shares to Radar. “RHONJ is a cash cow for them and she is ready to do it again.”
Teresa made waves earlier this month by alleging that Bravo is contractually able to fabricate storylines on their series, claiming that her relationship with her brother, Joe Gorga, is much better than it appears on the show.
The season finale of “RHONJ” airs Sunday at 8pm on Bravo, with the two-part reunion special kicking off next weekend.
