You might think it was because she was lining up a spin off, but don't jump to conclusions so quickly!
We're still not ready to deal with the loss of Caroline Manzo on Real Housewives of New Jersey, but from what she's now saying about her departure, all the meatballs in the world couldn't have gotten her to stay.
It seems the whole Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga lifelong feud, fake friends, bling bling dramz that consumes every season isn't just annoying the fans. Caroline is apparently totes over the shizz constantly being stirred on the show!
"Over the past few years my outlook on the show has changed from something I couldn't wait to show my future grandchildren to something I hope my future grandchildren never see. 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. For me, peace and integrity cannot be bought with money or fame."
Well, we certainly can agree that we wouldn't want any children watching Tre
accuse not accuse Melissa of being a stripper!
Plus, the whole Joe Gorga/Joe Giudice fight? Actually, kids are probably bright enough to know better than that!
