For one reality star, the rumors are now a, well, reality.
Following last night's Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Caroline Manzo took to Twiter and confirmed that she's leaving the franchise.
“It’s been wonderful guys," Manzo wrote. "I’ve decided to leave #RHONJ this season was my last. Love and kisses to you all. xoxoxo.”
Rumors of Caroline's departure first cropped up in September, but it's not as if she's saying goodbye to Bravo viewers: the network has signed Manzo to a spinoff hilariously titled Manzo'd with Children.
But Manzo insists she isn't leaving for her own fortune or fame. This move is all about integrity.
“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," she blogged, later adding:
“For me, peace and integrity cannot be bought with money or fame… I simply feel that my role has run its course and I have nothing more to give.”
Manzo was one of the program's original cast members and will likely be missed by many viewers. For some reason.
