The former housewife ended her five-year run on the reality show in October 2013.
Former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast member Caroline Manzo would like to return to Bravo TV’s hit reality show, not to record another season but rather to attack Teresa Giudice verbally.
Caroline remarked in a recent episode of her son Albie Manzo’s “Dear Albie” podcast: “I’m just gonna put it out there because I just don’t give a f–k, alright?”
“You know what? I would get great pleasure, fans, community, to go in and just knock the s–t out of her verbally and just put her in her place.”
“I am tired. I am tired of certain things. I am tired of her opening her very uneducated mouth, OK, and using me as a weapon to say that I was the one that spearheaded her IRS claim and stuff like that. We are not those people,” she continued.
“Sometimes, you gotta smack the bully. I am more than happy to go smack the bully,” the reality star added. In October 2013, Caroline quit the show after five seasons and started filming “Manzo’d With Children,” a spinoff series about her family that aired in October 2014.
The businesswoman then revealed that Bravo is no longer able to pay her, which is why she would not be returning to the reality program. “Bravo doesn’t wanna pay me,” she claimed.
“So guess what, Bravo? You don’t get this for free. You don’t get the dame for free, Bravo. They are paying Teresa, I’m sure, an exorbitant amount of money.”
When the episode first aired in 2009, the two ladies were good friends. Unfortunately, according to Page Six, due to harsh family situation and the former’s financial difficulties, their relationship worsened tremendously.
As we previously reported, Teresa’s fiancé, Luis Ruelas, reportedly slammed his ex-wife, Marisa DiMartino, against a metal pole after a furious financial disagreement in 2012. Teresa and co-star Melissa Gorga were also on bad terms.
Melissa recently stated on the “Mention it All” podcast that she would have been cast on “RHONJ” even if Teresa wasn’t involved. Meanwhile, she and her husband Joe said that Teresa got “house and food” for her children as well as support her family while she was in prison because of them.
