Caroline Manzo Leaving RHONJ Because Of Albert’s Cheating?


As we previously reported, Caroline Manzo will not be returning to season 6 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Reports state that Manzo quit because her family landed their own show on Bravo, Manzo’d With Children, but a new report by E! suggests it was her husband’s affairs being exposed that caused Caroline to quit the show. “Caroline wants out because she knows if she stays on the show, it’s only a matter of time before rumors of [husband] Al’s cheating becomes a storyline this season,” a source tells E! News. “The new girl, Penny, made allegations during filming this past season that Al had a history of cheating, but they were cut.”

As we EXCLUSIVELY told you, Bravo cut all of the scenes where Albert’s cheating were brought up during season 5. “Bravo is very protective of Caroline and wants to keep her happy. So, they’re letting her leave RHONJ and give her a spinoff attempt. The spinoff will be light-hearted and family-oriented, which is the image Caroline wants to protect. But if she stayed on RHONJ, there’s no way she’d be able to keep the rumors about Al cheating quiet and she knows it.”

But a source tells Wetpaint Caroline’s story line just wasn’t going anywhere. “The truth is, Caroline’s storyline on the show has simply just come to an end,” the insider says. “The show really and truly has become about the Gorgas and the Giudices. Whereas Caroline used to be a main player, her role has turned into more of an advisor this season. As far as RHONJ goes, there’s just not a lot left for her to do, which is fine by her. She doesn’t want to be at the center of the drama and the ugliness anymore.”

“She loved filming the pilot to her new show and hopes very much it gets picked up,” the insider continued. “It will have a much lighter feel and it will be about her kids and her family. And at the end of the day, that’s who she wants to be surrounded by.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    I wish this was a storyline for season six. Why they can’t have Penny expose Caroline’s scandal for season six is beyond me. They should. If not Jac & Caro better both be fired.

    And those rumors came from Penny the Horsetail so I am sure they are true because she never lies…her and the bitch Kim D are so honest. VOMIT I really hope Teresa has cut ties with those bitches after they stabbed her in the back.

      Teresa and Kim are still tweeting pictures together. I believe Penny. If Teresa is so honest she would not have the fraud counts (39 no less) against her. She is selfish and as bad as Melissa is she can run circles around Teresa as a person.

    BOYCOTT BRAVO if Teresa isn’t fired!!! She has been arrested on 39 counts for being a thief and liar. Why should we support a criminal!

      It’s really hard for me to believe that Teresa Giudice was picked as the most popular housewife! Her parenting skills are nil, her grammar even worse, and next to mama Elsa. she is the most unattractive woman on TV reality shows! If she was a nice forgiving person she would be significantly more attractive, but that doesn’t seem to be part of her make-up, not with that Huge Italian Chip she has on her shoulder. I feel sorry for her, but she is paying the consequences for her ignorance of her husband’s actions.
      She claims that she is a loving parent but kids want discipline and she doesn’t dole that out. Milania is nothing more than a spoiled brat with no filter and not one bit cute! Too bad when she gets older and becomes just like her mother – she is just a hop, skip, and a jump from that!
