Is Caroline Manzo the next 'Real Housewife' to leave the franchise?
Danielle Staub is almost certainly laughing at all the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" drama circulating recently. In the ongoing "Who is leaving the show?" saga, reports have surfaced that Caroline Manzo is following Jacqueline Laurita and leaving the show.
According to the Huffington Post, Bravo is behind the departures, citing an insider who says Manzo and Laurita were told they've been sparse on the drama this season and thus were not asked back for Season 5.
A Bravo spokesperson had this to say: “Bravo is not firing anyone from ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey.’ This is completely inaccurate from sources who are unreliable and making up rumors. All five cast members will be featured on season four. No decisions have been made about season five at this time."
Production for Season 4 began while Season 3 began airing.
Rumors about Laurita's exit surfaced last week after the reality star tweeted a series of messages that hinted she was done with the show.
The Season 3 finale airs Sunday.
