Caroline Manzo has confirmed her departure from The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

But the Bravo series has already found a replacement for the exiting star. Three replacements, in fact, according to In Touch Weekly.

Amber Marchese and twin sisters Nicole and Teresa Napolitano are reportedly coming on board for Season 6, as the series undergoes a major transformation after growing "really dark," a network insider says.

“They needed to bring in new faces to get back to some of the lighter drama that everyone loves from the Real Housewives franchise," this source tells the tabloid.

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.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey "Reunion Part 2" got underway with inventive insults and ended with opening old wounds. We recap it all in our THG +/- review.

What do the Housewives regret about this season?

Talk to the Hand
  • Rosie wishes she hadn't told Teresa to "take it up the *ss."
  • Teresa Giudice says she shouldn't have called Jacqueline Laurita evil.
  • Even Juicy Joe says he shouldn't have used names like Josephine, butchy boy, and horsey face.

Plus 20 because how often does anyone admit when they're wrong on this show?

Don't worry. It doesn't last long.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey  "Reunion Part 1" hit our TV screens and I had to wonder how many viewers felt a lot like Juicy Joe this season…

Juicy Joe's Looking Bored

We recap all the backstabbing and infidelity in our THG +/- review.

Remember last season's reunion show when these ladies all but swore they'd never live in the same town, never mind share this sofa again. Well, some might have changed zip codes but they all showed up to talk to Andy Cohen this time around. Plus 15.

Remember when The Real Housewives of New Jersey finale ended in relative peace?

So much for that.

Bravo has released a sneak peek at Part 1 of this show's reunion special, which airs Sunday night, and it features plenty of fighting among the cast members.

At the heart of the debate, as you might imagine? Teresa Giudice, who is facing up to 50 years in prison as the result of federal fraud charges and who has four small children at home. Watch the clip now:

Just a few days after its latest season finale, The Real Housewives of New Jersey casting carousel is spinning furiously.

Teresa Giudice is desperate to return. Caroline Manzo is leaving for a spinoff. And Dina Manzo may become a series regular once again.

An insider says Dina "wants to come back," but she has one very strong condition for her return:

She "wants [Jacqueline Laurita] fired first because she is afraid of fighting with her,” a source tells Huffington Post blogger Tom Murro.

It's "Salon, Farewell" as The Real Housewives of New Jersey wrap up their season as everyone gathers at the salon. We recap the fighting and scary faces in our THG + or - review.

And what kind of finale would it be without Kim D's scowling face?

What's So Scary?

Apparently the woman who resembles the crypt keeper scares Joe and Teresa Giudice too? Plus 20.

But it's Penny and Teresa who go at it first. Since Penny is claiming Teresa texts her, Teresa wants to see the texts. Plus 12 because for once Teresa makes a perfectly reasonable request. 

Unfortunately Penny tells her, "I don't save my texteses." Or was that I don't save Texas? Minus 18. My Jersey Housewives translator must be on the fritz.

Teresa Giudice is desperate to get in.

And Caroline Manzo just got out.

With Giudice hoping to sign a new deal with Bravo and play a major role on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6, multiple outlets confirm that Manzo will NOT be returning to the franchise that made her famous.

This mother of three was an original cast member then RHONJ debuted in 2009, but her departure from the flagship does not mean viewers have seen the last of Caroline Manzo. Far from it.

Teresa Giudice may be spending the next 50 years in prison.

For now, though, this Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member is simply focused on the next few months: insiders confirm she's working on a new deal with the Bravo franchise for one very important reason.

Teresa is desperate for money,” a source tells Radar Online.

Teresa and husband Joe have pleaded not guilty to federal fraud charges that include lying about their assets in a bankruptcy filing and misrepresenting their fortune in mortgage applications.

A trial date was scheduled for October 8, but then pushed back to early 2014, and legal fees will continue to mount for the couple.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is back for another episode and "Hair We Go Again" with the bad hair and worse singing.

We break down the need for a better hair weave and the purple pimp hat in our THG +/- review.

There were so many things that were just bad in this episode, like this outfit of Teresa's...

What Is She Wearing?

I'm not sure we'll have space to share them all. But let's try.

We'll start off with Melissa Gorga. No, her hair is good. It's her singing that needs work. Lots of work. Minus 15 because listening to her vocal exercises was just downright painful.
