If you’ve been hoping to see the Manzo family on your TV sometime soon, don’t hold your breath. It sounds like Manzo’d With Children isn’t returning for another season, according to star Caroline Manzo. On Tuesday, she shared an Instagram featuring her new granddaughter “holding up” three fingers and wrote, “After three Seasons of Manzo'd we out — Markie drops [microphone emoji] — we are forever grateful to our viewers, we love you all! [heart emoji] #threefingersup #manzod #manzodwithmorechildren.” She doesn’t come outright and say the show is done and over with, but the way she’s worded the caption sure sounds like that. Bustle has reached out to Bravo for comment, but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
But while Bravo has yet to officially confirm the news, judging by Caroline's Instagram it certainly seems like the Real Housewives of New Jersey spinoff focusing on Caroline and her family is dunzo. Also, I don’t know why Caroline would make such an announcement if it weren’t true. It’s unclear whether the Manzos decided against another season or if the reality series was canceled.
If Manzo’d isn’t filming new episodes, you know what that means? Fans won’t get to see Lauren Manzo’s pregnancy journey and the arrival of her daughter, Marchesa “Markie” Anna Scalia. She and her husband, Vito Scalia, became parents on Feb. 24. As for the name choice, Lauren clarified, “Anna is both of our grandmothers’ names and it sounded nice, so it was a perfect fit. I always loved the name Marchesa — no, not named after the designer, but obviously where I heard the name first and fell in love with it. I always said if I ever had a girl I would name her Marchesa.”
Even Albie Manzo shared a lengthy Instagram saying they've chosen not to do another season. "It's been a wild ride but the time has come [sic] to move on and I am so excited to see where life goes from here (Markie is amazing by the way)," part of his post reads. "Thank you all so much for being a part of our family for nearly the last decade, it means more than you know. I'm gonna miss you guys. Good Afternoon, Good Evening & Goodnight. #Manzod"
So, yeah, viewers probably won’t be meeting Markie on TV anytime soon. Also, the show leaving would mean no more hilarious moments from Albie and his brother Chris Manzo. Oh, and now that family friend Greg “Greggy” Bennett is moving back to New York from San Francisco, that means his triumphant return will never happen now. Maybe Bravo just needs to give him his own show already? Seriously, who’s with me on that?
And just because Manzo’d appears to be done and over with that doesn’t mean Caroline is returning to RHONJ. I mean, that would be flipping tables fantastic, especially with all those Danielle Staub rumors, but I highly doubt Caroline would associate herself with the show ever again — or specific cast members.
Whatever happens, let’s just hope the Manzos don’t stay away from Bravo forever.
