Is Caroline Manzo Returning To The Real Housewives Of New Jersey?

According to Radar Online, a source close to production reveals that they are looking at bring back Caroline Manzo to The Real Housewives of New Jersey since the main star, Teresa Giudice, must report to prison on January 5.

“Bravo has always liked Caroline,” they realize with Teresa gone they are going to have to do something to keep viewers intrigued, interested, and tuned in.”

“Ratings were slipping this season, but improved when Kathy Wakile and Laurita returned. Now, “Bravo wants to ensure the ratings for next season are strong. Caroline always brought Italian-Mom realness to the show, which viewers connected with. She also has a big fan base.”

What about the comments Manzo previously made that wives who returned to the franchise are crazy? “Caroline always likes to keep people thinking about what her next move will be,” notes the source. “If the offer from Bravo is right, Caroline will definitely consider it.”

And it looks like Manzo’s spin-off series, Manzo’d With Children, wouldn’t be affected by whatever decision she makes. Says the source, “Manzo’d exceeded Bravo’s expectations ratings-wise and they are definitely interested in another season.”

The site also reports that Jacqueline Laurita will be returning in a full time status in the upcoming seventh season.

However, in a recent Reddit AMA Session, Executive Producer, Andy Cohen opened up about the future of the Bravo series. “We have not made any plans relating to the future of the Jersey Housewives," said Cohen. "We'll go back and meet and talk and re-evaluate soon.”
