Bravo has officially picked up Caroline Manzo's Real Housewives of New Jersey spinoff, Manzo'd With Children, the network announced at its upfront presentation on Tuesday.
Here's how Bravo described the series:
Caroline Manzo of The Real Housewives of New Jersey attempts to be the ring leader of her crazy Italian family. Her children are driving her more nuts than ever as Albie is single and ready to mingle, Chris is eager to come up with the best idea since the stripper/car wash, and Lauren has finally let Vito put a ring on it. Meanwhile, husband, Al Sr., has no tolerance for all these shenanigans. It's one crowded house filled with laughter and personality...and maybe a few rounds of the Ham Game.
Manzo, often the voice of reason on five seasons of Real Housewives, announced her decision to leave the show last year.
"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 wrote. "Going back to film another season of Housewives would only make me a hypocrite."
"We are having an absolute blast filming it," she said of her new series. "I hope you all join us as we start our new chapter within the Bravo newtork. We didn't close the book, we just turned the page."
