Things could go from bad to worse for Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Giudice, who is currently going through her husband Joe’s deportation drama. According to a new report, if executive producer Andy Cohen gets his way, Giudice’s sworn enemy Caroline Manzo may be returning to RHONJ next season.
“Andy has called Caroline so many times trying to get her back on the show,” an insider spilled to Radar Online. “He calls her husband too, he’s pushing hard to have her come back.”

Even though Giudice – RHONJ’s biggest star – wants no part of Manzo, it looks like her return could be inevitable. The insider says that Manzo has turned Cohen down multiple times because she is worried that “fans won’t be there for her.” However, that isn’t keeping Cohen from trying to convince her to return.
The RHONJ ladies have already started filming Season 11 so cameras can catch Juicy Joe’s deportation drama play out. And, the source says that Manzo would easily fit right back in.
Even though Teresa has problems with Caroline, she still keeps in touch with Caroline’s sister, Dina Manzo. Teresa reportedly met up with Dina back in January to get some marriage advice. But, that doesn’t mean that Teresa wants anything to do with Caroline.
However, she is not the RHONJ decision maker, that’s Cohen. And, as the insider reminds fans, “Andy can be very persuasive.”
As for Joe, he is still waiting for a decision on his appeal of the deportation ruling that a judge issued last fall. As it stands now, Joe will be turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) when he is released from prison later this month so he can be deported to his native Italy.
If that happens, Teresa has made it clear that the couple will split.
She told Cohen during part three of the RHONJ Season 9 reunion that she can’t do long distance because she wants someone with her every day.
“I know exactly what happens — I’m sure he’ll be with other women. It happens,” Teresa revealed. “You do the long-distance thing, it’s not going to work. I’d be like, ‘Bye-bye.’”
Teresa Giudice explained that moving with her four daughters to Italy wasn’t an option because they have already been through so much.
Bravo has not announced a premiere date for Season 10 of Real Housewives of New Jersey, nor have they confirmed or denied the Caroline Manzo rumors.
