There is a photo circulating online of The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice pictured with her former enemy and co-star, Caroline Manzo and it has RHONJ fans thinking Caroline might be returning to the show.
Real Housewives of New Jersey fans, this one is a doozy — so settle in.
Rumours are flying that Caroline Manzo is returning to RHONJ after fans discovered a photo of her Teresa Giudice filming some sort of commercial. And yes, you read that correctly: Former enemies Teresa and Caroline have been spotted together for the first time since Caroline left the show after season 5.
In videos and photos posted to Twitter, it’s clear that it is in fact both Teresa and Caroline filming the commercial. It takes place on an all-red set and the women are both dressed in matching red outfits.
Their RHONJ Past
Eventually, though, their relationship took a turn for the worse. Caroline and Jacqueline turned on Teresa and they had a pretty major falling out in season 4 of the show. After Caroline departed at the end of season 5, the two have not been seen together and have traded insults in the media.

A few theories are floating around as to what the two may be filming. This could be a commercial for a product, it could be one of those Bravo promos they do for a new movie, or it could in fact be a teaser for a new show; Maybe an upcoming RHONJ spinoff or special?
Does this mean Caroline is returning to RHONJ?
Bravo, Andy Cohen, and all of the Housewives are obviously going to remain silent as fans digest this information but it has to be pointed out that this doesn’t guarantee Caroline is returning to RHONJ. She has maintained a positive relationship with the network, so it’s quite possible this is for something unrelated.
That said, Teresa has basically dared Caroline to return and Caroline, for her part, has said she’s open to it — for the right salary. And now that Teresa and Danielle Staub are no longer friends, that creates an opening for Teresa and Caroline to move forward.
If Caroline is returning to RHONJ, this won’t be good news for the rest of the cast. If she returned and the current cast remained the same (including Danielle in either a part-time or full-time role), that would make for 8 women in total and it’s not likely the show would go with such a large cast.
