Could two OG Jersey Housewives be returning to Real Housewives of New Jersey for season 9?
It turns out maybe.
Sources tell Us Weekly that RHONJ producers have reached out to former RHONJ stars Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita about returning to the series.
In fact, Caroline played coy when asked if producers have reached out telling Us Weekly,“It’s not a no, and it’s certainly not a yes. It’s a who knows.”
However, Caroline says she would have to think long and hard about returning to RHONJ.
“But for me, it would be a major, major decision that I would have to really think very long and very hard on. It’s not something that I would embrace wholeheartedly and say “let’s do this!” It’s something that I would consider very very heavily and for a long time,” Caroline revealed. “On my end, it would have to be a very well thought out decision because it has so many layers to it at this point in my life. So many layers to it. I had so much fun doing Manzo’d. It was just an awesome, awesome opportunity.”
If Caroline did return, she would have a lot of catching up to do since she claims she hasn’t watched the show since leaving in 2013.
Why? “because once I left, I left,” Caroline explained; adding that she does keep in touch with some of the ladies.
“I speak to Jacqueline,” Caroline explained. “I’m friends with Dolores [Catania]. We’ve been friends for 30 plus years, so her and I are ride or die. We don’t speak every day, but if she called me right now and said she needed me, I’d go running and vice versa. Her family is very very close with the Manzo family, but beyond that, no, I see Kathy [Wakile] every once in a while, and it’s always good to see her, and I think she’s a wonderful person. Melissa [Gorga] I don’t have any issues with, but she hasn’t lived by me. She lives about a half hour away from me. And Teresa [Giudice] is Teresa, that’s no secret there.”
