Last night was the much awaited season finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey. And I mean much awaited because we are all desperate to escape the meandering Gorgadice feud storyline which has dominated the show for three seasons.
With majorly dropping ratings this season, we're hoping next season is a season of change. But until then, our favorite existing Jersey stars weigh in on last night's episode.
Teresa Giudice did not comment – clearly her appearance on WWHLsaid enough. As for Melissa Gorga she used the opportunity to promote her various endeavors – currently a controversial "marriage bible" – and retweeted that this season had the "perfect ending". OooooKaaaay.
Caroline Manzo has already landed a spinoff aptly titled 'Manzo'd With Children' and in light of that has opted to leave the show. At least temporarily while she shoots a pilot for her new show! Some sources say Caroline may come back pending the spinoff's success, others say she is officially done!
My Magic Hate Ball predicts 'Try Again', Caro! I'm sorry while I think they're a sweet family, they just don't have much charisma or presence. I think that will be super boring to watch.
After five grueling seasons, Caroline Manzo is quitting The Real Housewives of New Jersey, reportedly.
This isn't really shocking news since she's currently filming a pilot episode for a potential spinoff series, Manzo'd With Children, that will feature her husband and adult children. According to sources Caroline will not be returning to the Real Housewives even if the spinoff isn't given the green light for a full season.
Us Weekly claims that sources confirmed to them that Caroline has quit the show officially – or perhaps Bravo's trying to generate a whole lotta gossip this week ahead of the season finale….
TELL US – HOW SHOULD BRAVO TWEAK THE SHOW FOR SEASON SIX? WHICH CAST MEMBERS SHOULD GO, WHICH SHOULD STAY?
It's official! TheCaroline Manzo spinoff is full steam ahead! Caroline, Albert and their kids,Albie, Chris and Lauren, will be filming a pilot for Manzo'd With Children. “It’s one crowded house filled with personality, laughter and ham… in both pig and honey-baked forms.”
The show will follow Caroline, the “ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family." Along with the immediate Manzo clan, it will feature Caroline's sister Fran. I had a feeling about that one since she was featured on a previous episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey.
We all had a feeling that Bravo was setting them up for a spinoff all through season 5 – and we were all right! The show isn't a "for sure" thing. Once the pilot is filmed, they'll make a decision whether or not to pick it up for a full series. Manzo'd With Children is just the working title of the potential series.
Let's hope they get a different editing team for their show than the one working on RHONJ right now.
TELL US – WILL YOU TUNE IN TO SEE WHAT'S IN STORE?
Interesting, because Bravo has been promoting Christopher and Albie's latest project (Little Big Town) pretty heavily on RHONJ. Caroline has also pretty much moved out of Franklin Lakes and relocated to Hoboken near her boys. Caroline's storyline this season has been recapturing the love with Al whose unfaithfulness has been hinted at several times. I imagine the true subject of the spinoff would be starting over with the boys building a new family business and Caroline staying in the role of the matriarch.
