Caroline Manzo Shares Her Thoughts On Jacqueline and Teresa’s Friendship


Caroline Manzo may no longer appear on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, but she previously told the Daily Dish that she watches the show “in spurts,” and of course, she supports her sister-in-law, Jacqueline Laurita, who returned to the show this season.

So what does Manzo think of Jacqueline’s complicated friendship with Teresa Giudice?

“Jacqueline’s not crazy; Jacqueline tells it like it is, you know what I mean? And the problem with Jacqueline is when you’re her friend and you turn on her, she’s gonna be very hurt, and she’s gonna try every which way to make it right. And if you don’t want to make it right, then run. Run as far as you can, because you know why? Then she’s hurt,” Caroline said. “So I get where she’s coming from 1,000 percent. And she’s got a lot of bottled up emotions as well. And I think this is the season where Jacqueline finally speaks her truth. And sometimes, the truth is not popular. So I don’t blame her. I don’t blame her. I get it.”

At the time of this interview, Caroline had not seen the episode where Jacqueline called Teresa out for “filing a fraudulent bankruptcy.” But Caroline wasn’t surprised. “A million percent expected,” she said. “So if I could have written it beforehand, I probably would’ve because I know the personalities. And some things are just not gonna work, and this is one of those things that’s just not gonna work because people are who they are, and that’s the end of the story.”

But when asked if she thought Jacqueline and Teresa would ever be able to be friends again, Caroline took a long pause before saying, “Never say never.” “Jacqueline really, truly loved Teresa. She did. And she feels betrayed and she feels hurt and all those things,” Caroline explained. “Sometimes, Jacqueline’s delivery is wrong — we’ve said that a million times — but she’s got a very, very good heart. And when she feels betrayed and hurt and used, she’s gonna come after you. And I think that’s what she did. You want somebody on your side to fight with you? You want Jacqueline. But then you don’t want her as your enemy.”

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.

  • You know what’s funny about this interview…I can tell it’s real because as it’s written, I can completely hear Caroline’s voice in every word that she is saying. It’s kind of funny. As for the content, she probably doesn’t even give a crap, but has to do interviews to promote her own show on Bravo.

      I don’t think she gives a crap either! Xoxox

      • At this point, I don’t even think Jacs or Theresa give a crap as well. lol. Bravo is overdoing EVERYTHING…these stories are getting so overdone and drawn out season after season. They can change out one or two people every year but if they don’t get rid of the core idiots, the dynamic will never change. I understand that those core idiots are their bread and butter unfortunately.

          I don’t think Bravo realize people are getting really fed up with the same old same old story lines right through RH all the time. They seem to think we want this crap. Kelly from OC is a good example! Xoxoxoxox

            Hey Suze and Freedomgirl…I think you’re both spot on. It’s 2.0 or 3.0 or 4.0000000 !!! I hate the constant arguinging about nothing but the “reality” is that you can’t get that much action from a bunch of women year after year after year. Or if you did and it was real, there would be blood spilled by now.

          • I think they should put Rinna and Died together with their fiflty mouth s.I’m tired of Megan I don’t care to see V.They all are losing me.
