When we last saw Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice together on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, they were not on the friendliest of terms, to put it mildly. But now that a few years filled with major life events for both of the former castmates have passed, have the two attempted to put the past behind them and make amends?
Caroline recently revealed to The Daily Dish that she and Teresa have not been in touch recently — and she said they're both perfectly OK with that. "We could all sugarcoat it as much as you want. The truth of the matter is she don't want to talk to me. I don't want to talk to her," she said. "And she's fine with that, and I'm fine with that."
And the Manzo'd with Children matriarch said she doesn't plan on reaching out to Teresa anytime soon. "No plans. Listen, I could walk into a room and see her and say hello, kiss her hello, say, 'How are you?' I could sit at the same table and have dinner with her, you know what I mean?" Caroline explained. "We're just not meant to be friends. And I'm telling you she's as fine with it as I'm fine with it. So it's fine."
But that doesn't mean the Manzos haven't been keeping up with the Giudices. Caroline's daughter Lauren Manzo revealed that she followed the family as they coped with Teresa's time away in prison during last fall's Teresa Checks In special. "I cried a couple times when I was watching it," the Manzo'd daughter said during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last November.
Of course, keeping up with all of the Manzo happenings has kept Caroline plenty busy since RHONJ. See what the upcoming season of Manzo'd with Children has in store for the famiglia, below.
