One of the few voices of reason on the Real Housewives of New Jersey is hittin’ the road. Caroline Mazo is dropping the drama and getting her own show on Bravo.
According to People -
It’s been wonderful guys,” the mother of three, 52, who was often the voice of reason on the show, posted on her Twitter exactly one minute after the show’s reunion finale aired Sunday on Bravo.
“I’ve decided to leave #RHONJ this season was my last. Love and kisses to you all. Xoxoxo”
I really used to like these shows, but to be honest the only thing that happens now is fighting. Especially on New Jersey! It’s just Teresa versus everyone else. I can’t even cope after I watch it, I need a Xanax, or chamomile tea.
“I’ve always prided myself on giving you the truth of who I really am, the good, the bad, and the ugly,” Manzo wrote on Bravo’s blog. “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.”
Manzo, who also seemed to grow weary of the ongoing family feud between Giudice and her brother, Joe Gorga, summed up her thoughts on leaving on the blog: “Going back to film another season of Housewives would only make me a hypocrite. For me, peace and integrity cannot be bought with money or fame. As I said on the reunion, I’m done … I have nothing more to give.”
Ahh, but she does have more to give. Just not to the women of the Real Housewives. Manzo and her kids are getting a spinoff!
“I may be leaving Housewives, but my relationship with Bravo will continue as we started production on a pilot, Manzo’d with Children, which if [it] goes to series promises to give the viewers a very different look into the world of the Manzo Family,” she wrote.
“We are having an absolute blast filming it, and I hope you all join us as we start our new chapter within the Bravo network. We didn’t close the book, we just turned the page.”
The new show will focus on Manzo, her hardworking husband, Al, and her three children, Albie, Lauren and Chris, who have long been featured on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
I’d actually watch this. This seems like a mostly stable family that works their asses off and really care about each other. Imagine that! I hope it’s a great success to show Bravo that the cat fights are just too much.
Good luck to her and her family.
