Caroline Manzo

Yes, you read the above right! The tangled web of 'I hate you, I love you, I want to destroy your life, oh but I just want us to be close again' that is Real Housewives of New Jersey just got… crazier? Hold on – you're in for a wild one!

Yesterday we reported that despite an alleged reconciliation of the Gorgadice families, Joe Gorga said things were still very, very bad between the families. 

Following two seasons of the same fighting between Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga (and massive fan backlash), Bravo hired new producers to handle S5 of RHONJ as they apparently want a storyline with a more positive spin. Melissa hinted at this in an earlier interview. 

According to an exclusive obtained by TamaraTattles, producers are so desperate for this family feud to end they are forcing Teresa, Melissa, and the Joes to film together and make nice (our source confirmed they held a staged playdate to appear like they are working things out).

I have, what I consider, to be bittersweet news.  One of my favorites is quitting Real Housewives of New Jersey.  I realize I'm likely in the minority, but I have a soft-spot for most of the Manzos.  Sure I didn't like when Caroline Manzo got all bitter for an entire season (I was fearful someone was going to awaken to a horse head in their bed), but I do think she is sick of the toxicity and drama…even if she was a participant.  

Even though it can certainly be argued that Caroline's children are overly coddled, I still think Albie and Chris are good guys.  A friend of mine grew up with Albie, and he has nothing but nice things to say about their family.  Of course, without the Manzo boys, there would be no Greg Bennett.  Greggy is by far my favorite Manzo by association…and now he's leaving.  

Greg is heading to the West Coast at the end of this month to make his home in San Francisco.  Sadly (for me), this means he will no longer be appearing on RHONJ, but I'm hoping that he gets some screen time when he comes back to visit!

Never a dull day in the land of Real Housewives of New Jersey! Last season Caroline Manzo's biggest storyline (other than suddenly hating Teresa Giudice and her daughter Lauren Manzo's weight problems) was menopause, not to be confused with mean-opause. 

Caroline was seen meeting with one Dr. Dov Rand learning about treatments for her foul mood. Hopefully she didn't listen too carefully to his advice, because Starcasm reports the good doctor is headed to jail for the next five months and was just fined $30,000!

Dr. Rand pleaded guilty in federal court for accepting kickbacks in exchange for patient referrals to Orange Community MRI. Dr. Rand, along with 12 other NJ doctors, were arrested last December and charged with taking money in exchange for recommending Medicare and Medicaid patients for tests they may not necessarily need.

Have any of you been missing Dina Manzo since she bid farewell to Real Housewives of New Jersey?  Well, fear not, because she's back…and her name is now Alessandra DiGiacomo.  That's right!  Dina's an actress now, y'all!

I'm actually really excited about this news.  Following in the footsteps of Real Housewives of Atlanta's NeNe Leakes, Dina has landed a role on an upcoming scripted dramedy.  The series, called Tainted Dreams, portrays the drama among soap opera actors behind-the-scenes of their daily stories (was my grandmother the only one who called soap operas her "stories"?).  How very Melrose Place of Dina!

Oh wow.  I bet y'all didn't even know that it was possible to have a short, sweet Real Housewives of New Jersey post, but I'm here to restore your faith.  After the jump, I've got some great gossip and some hilarious Caroline Manzo news.  It won't disappoint.

Let me throw out some buzz words in hopes of sparking your interest.  We've got a former Basketball Wives star hanging out with a pole dancing "prostitution whore" from seasons past of RHONJ.  We've also got Caroline's face popping up in a very odd place.  It's amazing.

It's the casting rumors that never end!  Yes, they go on and on my friend!  Gossip has been swirling around the Real Housewives of New Jersey and who may or may not be joining the cast.  Apparently everyone from last season will be returning, but there seems to be some confusion whether there will be any new full-fledged housewives.

The ladies left off last year on not the most positive of notes.  Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile faced off against Teresa Giudice at the reunion, and many media outlets speculated that Bravo would be bringing in more allies for Teresa.  And maybe they are…but they will just be labeled "friends of housewives."
