The back and forth continues amongst the ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey. In today’s update, Teresa Giudice claims Caroline Manzo was never even supposed to be included in the show and Caroline allegedly tried to convince Bravo to fire Teresa (which she denies)!
Up first, Reality Weekly is reporting that Caroline is so annoyed with Teresa’s presence in her life she is trying to get Bravo to fire the drama besieged housewife! Caroline is apparently trying to convince her fellow castmates to all band together and refuse to film with Teresa. A tactic that was also used in part to oust Danielle Staub from the series.
“Caroline is the ringleader, as usual, and has pulled all the other New Jersey Housewives into the plan,” an insider discloses. This is a tactic that often backfires. When Jill Zarin attempted to do this to Bethenny Frankel, Bravo retaliated by handing her a spinoff…something Teresa has, apparently, already been angling for!

Caroline is supposedly so serious about Teresa needing to go, she’s taken a her or me approach and made it know she will quit if Teresa doesn’t leave the show!
In a Facebook post dispelling the rumors, Caroline claims it’s absolutely not true! “Dear world – newsflash – there was no meeting – no ultimatum – no demands – no talk at all of Season 5 between myself & Bravo,” she wrote. Adding, “Article suggesting otherwise is a bold face – downright lie.” She really enjoys her own special use of punctuation, doesn’t she?
Yesterday Teresa talked to Johnjay and Rich on their Phoenix radio show and not only discussed her family and friends drama, but also shared that Caroline wasn’t even supposed to be on RHONJ.
As for her family drama, Teresa shares: “It’s sad hearing my family talk about me,” she mused, “but it is what it is.” And she stands by her apology to Caroline about the cookbook. “I apologized. To me it takes a bigger person to apologize than not to apologize. I did it and I was sincere. Now the balls in their court.”
Teresa also explained how she got cast for the show – apparently it all stems back to Dina Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. “They found us through a salon in Franklin Lakes called Chateau,” Teresa reveals. “Dina and Jacqueline were regulars there. Dina recommended me and Jacqueline recommended another friend of hers that backed out.”
“And then she sent the cameras over to Caroline’s house. So, Caroline really wasn’t supposed to do it. But they interviewed her, they saw her kids, and I guess they liked her and thought she would be good for the show. And Danielle was a regular at the salon.” So there you have it!
If I had a dollar for every time I typed “Real Housewives of New Jersey” I’d be able to afford my own marble encrusted Franklin Lakes mansion! Which I’m not sure I necessarily want… imagine being neighbors with these ladies!
