As in all aspects of her life, former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo had certain rules when it came to filming. And she thinks that they have served her well.
"There were certain rules that I had in filming [RHONJ] and that was: you never saw us in our bedroom, I would never wear a bikini--'cause I have grown sons," Caroline told HuffPost Live. "I just don't do that. And I think that kind of separated me from the other ladies."
That separation is also something that Caroline thinks influenced her relationship with Andy Cohen. "Andy and I have a unique relationship," she said. "I think that he does look at me differently [than other housewives]. We're not that far apart in age, maybe 10 or 12 years, but I think he looks at me more as a mother figure than a housewives figure."
Caroline is gearing up for the debut of her new Bravo show, Manzo'd with Children, which premieres this Sunday at 9/8c and shows what happens when all three of Caroline's grown children move back home.
Watch a sneak peek of the new show below.
