"When I had the opportunity to work with her and be a part of her life, I tried my best," Caroline told Us Weekly. Despite their tumultuous relationship Caroline harbors no ill will towards Teresa. "My heart goes out to her and what she’s going through now. I wish her and her children peace and nothing but the best. It’s history. It’s in my past and that’s where I’m keeping it. I walked away for a reason."
Caroline has moved on to bigger and better things – like her family-centered spinoff Manzo'd With Children, which premieres soon. "I'm a wreck!" Caroline confessed in reaction to her solo TV project. "I'm terrified, excited, and grateful all wrapped into one."
Warning fans not to expect the type of drama they've witnessed on RHONJ, Caroline also promises viewers will see a different side to her family. "I walked away for a reason and I intend to stay away," Caroline explains. Although she does admit there will be family tension. "Lets call it dilemmas," she clarifies. "We'll have dilemmas."
Caroline is anxious for viewers to learn more about her family. "I think they’ll say oh, 'I never knew Lauren was that feisty' or 'I never knew Caroline was that laid back.' I'm excited and so honored to have this opportunity! I'm shocked! It blows my mind."
