Caroline Manzo isn’t one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey anymore, but her days of reality TV are far from over.
According to E! News, the 52-year-old reality TV star has landed a spin-off with Bravo.
The network recently announced that Manzo’s spin-off, Manzo’d with Children, was ordered to a series. The announcement was made at Bravo’s 2014 upfront presentation.
The new series delves further into the lives of Caroline, her husband Albert, and their sons, Albie and Chris, daughter Lauren and her sister Fran.
The entrepreneur and radio host spoke with E!, sharing her sentiments of the new series. Of course, she and her family are both elated and excited about the next chapter of reality TV tenure.
“It is a very exciting time for me and my family. We are grateful for this opportunity from Bravo and our fans,” Caroline said.

“Expect a lot of smiles, laughs and good times.” The network also released a First Look: Manzo’d with Children segment for the upcoming series, so fans can know what’s to come from the Manzo family.
While Manzo’s exit from the Real Housewives of New Jersey may be bittersweet for fans, she took time to explain her reasons behind the departure on her Bravo blog.
“I’ve always prided myself on being a good example for my children and my decision to leave is based on advice I’ve always given them: ‘Be true to yourself and be proud of who you are, you are born with a name and you die with a name, don’t dirty it up.’ Going back to film another season of Housewives would only make me a hypocrite,” she wrote.
“For me, peace and integrity cannot be bought with money or fame. I practice what I preach, and as I said on the reunion, I’m done. I simply feel that my role has run its course and I have nothing more to give.”
Manzo’d with Children is tentatively scheduled to premiere some time later this year.
