Insiders close to Caroline Manzo revealed this week that the Real Housewives of New Jersey veteran would be departing from the show that made her a household name, but is there a bigger reason behind this?
According to E! Online, a source is claiming that Caroline is leaving before the rumors that her husband Al has been cheating and having affairs come to the forefront of the storyline. Penny allegedly brought this up on camera this season, but the scenes did not make the cut.
The source reveals, “Bravo is very protective of Caroline and wants to keep her happy. So, they’re letting her leave RHONJ and give her a spinoff attempt. The spinoff will be light-hearted and family-oriented, which is the image Caroline wants to protect. But if she stayed on RHONJ, there’s no way she’d be able to keep the rumors about Al cheating quiet and she knows it.”
What a wise move on her part, but at the same time, how unfair is Bravo as an employer?
Do you think Caroline left because she was scared of the cheating rumors being focused on? Is there any truth behind them?
