The matriarch is leaving the building!
After last night’s part two of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Caroline Manzo took to Twitter to confirm her departure after five seasons.
It's been wonderful guys. I've decided to leave #RHONJ this season was my last. Love and kisses to you all. xoxoxo— Caroline Manzo (@CarolineManzo) October 14, 2013

The 52-year-old followed up that tweet with an explanation as to why she decided to say goodbye.
Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Teresa Giudice: 'Jealous' of Caroline Manzos Spin-Off
“I think I’m going to make this short and sweet because to put all my thoughts into a single blog would take forever and quite possibly turn the blog into a novel, so here goes: I have made the decision to leave The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” she wrote on her Bravo blog. “Over the past couple of years, Bravo and I have had numerous conversations regarding my position on Housewives, and they accept and understand where I’m coming from.”
But it won’t be the last time fans will see Caroline on the small screen. Bravo recently announced she was filming a pilot for her family’s own spinoff, Manzo’d With Children.
“We are having an absolute blast filming it, and I hope you all join us as we start our new chapter within the Bravo network, “ she said. “We didn’t close the book, we just turned the page.”
The show will focus on Caroline, her husband, Al, and their children, Albie, Lauren and Chris.
On Sunday’s reunion, Caroline butted heads with co-RHONJ housewife Teresa Giudice, who along with her husband, Joe, currently face up to 50 years in jail for multiple counts of fraud. The pair have been feuding over recent seasons.
Teresa, who is mom to four girls, brought up feeling hurt by Caroline calling Teresa superficial when the cast filmed episodes.

“I don’t know if we can move forward after everything I’ve done for you and your family,” an angry Caroline said to the brunette, adding that Teresa is “someone I used to know.”
Caroline’s estranged sister, Dina Manzo, recently confirmed to Life & Style that she’s “in talks” to return to the series.
“I have been offered, I can say that,” she told the mag. “I’m considering it.”
