Caroline Manzo has announced that she’s leaving Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey after five seasons on the show.
The 52-year-old tough, no-nonsense mother of three won’t be returning for Season 6, sources told Us Weekly.
However, Manzo won’t be leaving Bravo altogether. As we previously reported, she will be filming a pilot for a spin-off show with her family called Manzo’d with Children. She joins other Real Housewives from other franchises who have received their own spin-off such as Bethenny Frankel, NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak, Kandi Burruss, Lisa Vanderpump and Tamra Barney.
Manzo’d with Children will focus on Manzo’s life with her husband Albert, kids Albie, Chris and Lauren and her sister Fran.
Manzo was one of the original cast members of Real Housewives of New Jersey when it made its debut back in 2009. A source says, however, that it isn’t “final” that she will be leaving.
Other members of the original cast are her now estranged sister Dina Manzo, sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita, Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub. The cast now is Manzo, Giudice, Laurita, Giuidice's sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and her cousin Kathy Wakile.
