Mama Manzo is back!
Caroline Manzo is finally debuting that secret cooking project she hinted about a few weeks back.
On Tuesday, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed that she and her brother Jamie Laurita are collaborating on a new cooking show.
Watch What’s Cooking is a YouTube-based cooking show that takes you right into Caroline’s infamous kitchen once again! If you’re an RHONJ fan, you know that Caroline’s kitchen is where the Manzo family hangs out the most!
Caroline gushed about her newest venture on Instagram, telling fans, “Super excited to have launched @watchwhatscookingtv along with my brother @jaimelaurita where we will be sharing some of our favorite recipes. Check us out & subscribe on youtube by searching watchwhatscooking or swipe up in my story! I am overwhelmed by all the messages and love that you guys have sent our way. It means the world to me. FYI – I’ve missed you guys too. Lots more to come.”

She also talked to HollywoodLife about her new show saying, “I’m having a blast doing what I love, so as the saying goes, it’s not work when you love what you do. Filming is like riding a bike, you just get back in the seat and go!”
As we mentioned earlier, Caroline’s brother, Jamie, will be her c0-host on Watch What’s Cooking. Jamie is a familiar face to fans as he appeared on both RHONJ and Manzo’d With Children.
“I will be cooking alongside my brother Jaime who is a trained chef and has traveled the world with the biggest names in the music industry,” Caroline revealed. “We will take our two very different styles of cooking — Mine is simple, traditional, his is over the top, fancy — And marry them, teaching our viewers how to cook dishes from the very simple family-style to rocking it out to impress. We also will be focusing on table and home entertaining design ideas.”
While Caroline is thrilled about her new digital series, she also admits that she’s still in talks with her old boss, Andy Cohen, about a possible return to Bravo.
“Andy and I have a very nice relationship, and I consider him a friend at this point,” Caroline said. “There’s always light-hearted banter regarding my return to Bravo. We know where to find each other if we decide to get serious about things. I’m happy where I am right now. Life is good.”
Carole says she chose to take her show to YouTube because it gives her the ability to have total control over the project, which is something she loves after doing reality TV!
“The reason I chose Youtube was really for me to have the ability to control the message and work by my own rules,” Caroline revealed. “This allows me to interact with the fans in a way that I never have before, very hands-on, and I’m super excited to see them cook what we have posted as well as tell us what they want to see us prepare in our kitchen!”
