Unfortunately for Caroline Manzo and her family, Christmas cheer is in short supply this year:

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star wrote on Twitter Wednesday that her beloved dog Austin has passed away.

“Dogs are FAMILY…rest in peace, Austin. We all love and miss you,” Manzo wrote, adding: “RIP my beautiful little puppy, you were so loved. Santa has a new sidekick.”

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.

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.

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.

Caroline Manzo is preparing to leave The Real Housewives of New Jersey behind.

According to The Wrap, the reality star will soon film a pilot for her very own Bravo spinoff. It will tragically be titled Manzo'd With Children. No, really.

The series will chronicle the Housewife in her duties as the “ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family," according to a network statement, with grown kids Albie, Chris and Lauren all signed on to appear.

Caroline's sister Fran will also be a regular cast member.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns and "The Blonde Drops a Bombshell"…or did she? We break down the rumors and ridiculous set ups in THG's +/- recap!

The Biggest Tongue

The Housewives once again gave us bad singing and even worse fake meetings. It was hard to figure out which was more cringe worthy.

Let's start with Melissa Gorga's singing talent. Minus 50. Please God, I beg you, make all Housewives end their supposed musical careers.

Seriously. It's nothing but painful for both the audience and the professionals that Bravo pays to come in and critique them.
