Does Caroline Manzo Miss 'RHONJ'?

She opens up about her life since leaving the Housewives.

It's been five months since Caroline Manzo announced that she was leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Since her exit, she's kept busy filming her new pilot Manzo'd With Children, planning her daughter Lauren's wedding, and focusing on losing weight. But are there days where she misses the action (and the drama) with her fellow 'Wives?

In a recent interview with Fashion & Style, Caroline dished about her life post-show.

"I knew it was something that I had in mind for a while," Manzo says of her departure. "I knew that I have given the show all I could. You know, when you have no more to give it's time to go. I made this decision and I'm at peace with it, and I'm cool. I'm happy. I don't miss it."

Caroline's firm in her resolve, and we've seen this show of strength from her before: when she first announced she was leaving RHONJ in October, she opened up about her decision in her final blog post.

And what about the Manzo's unscripted future? She and the rest of her family are stoked for their upcoming pilot, Manzo'd With Children, which just finished filming.

"We had an absolute blast filming it," she says. "It's fun. It's lighthearted. You really get the picture of who we are as a family, so we'll see what happens."
