A television personality, Caroline Manzo rose to prominence in the popular reality series, The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Introduced during season 1, she remained on the show for four years, prior to departing at the end of season five. Not only did she star alongside her sister Dina (whom she has a rocky relationship with), as well as a number of all costars. Responsible for her rise to fame, RHONJ remains to be one of her best-remembered appearances on television.
Since her television debut, she has unsurprisingly, appeared in numerous other shows including Who Wants to be a Millionaire, The Millionaire Matchmaker, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Rocco’s Dinner Party, to name a few. At one point, the reality star even had her own spin-off titled, Manzo’d With Children, which followed the daily life of Manzo, and her family- her husband, Albert, and two sons, Chris and Albie. Relatively successful, the series ran for three seasons before concluding in October 2016.
Since then, her list of television credits has only grown. In the recent years, she has been featured in several additional shows including Steve Harvey, FabLife, Rachael Ray, and Today. What else has Manzo been busy with outside of the show business? A successful businesswoman, she also spends time managing her family-owned catering company, which runs out of Paterson, New Jersey. On top of that, she’s also affiliated with several charities in the country including SCTNOW, a foundation dedicated to stopping child trafficking and CROC, a non-profit that helps cancer survivors.

How did Caroline Manzo Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on August 23, 1961, in New York, Caroline Manzo grew up with her nine siblings in New Jersey, one of whom includes her sister Danzo, who also stars on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Unfortunately, not much has been revealed about her early life at this time. In fact, it’s unclear what she had worked in prior to the Bravo reality series. As soon as we know more, we will update this section.
Launching her television career in the late 2000’s, Manzo made a brief appearance on My Fabulous Wedding (2007), before landing a lead role in Bravo’s reality series.
Premiered in 2009, the reality series served as the fourth installment of the franchise, following The Real Housewives of New York City, Atlanta, and Orange County. As popular as its predecessors, the show revolved around five women at the time of its debut. As an original housewife, the NJ native was featured in the first five seasons, while her sister Dina, starred in the first two.
Perhaps the greatest highlight of her television career to date, RHONJ garnered her much game throughout the late 2000’s and early 2010’s. For the first five seasons, both Manzo’s personal and private life were followed in detail on the show, as were her co-star’s. By the time she departed from the series at the end of season five, she already had herself a considerable fanbase.
How much did she make from the show? As you probably already know, the salaries differ for each housewife. According to sources, Manzo reportedly made $400,000 per season. To put things into perspective, her co-stars Melissa Gorge and Jacqueline Laurita were said to have received $350,000 and $275,000 per season respectively. Multiplying that amount by five (e.g. five seasons), she would have yielded approximately $2 million from the series altogether.
Not long after leaving RHONJ, Manzo landed her own reality series, Manzo’d with Children in 2014. The show’s first spin-off, it followed the daily life of her and her family, including her husband Albert, and three children, Chris, Albee, and Lauren. Premiered on October 5, 2014, on Bravo, the first season ultimately ran for eight episodes, until November 2014. From there, the show was renewed twice; the third and final season concluded in October 2016, after ten episodes.
Since then, Manzo hasn’t starred in any new reality series. With that said, she has appeared in a handful of talk shows such as Access Hollywood Live, Today, and Steve Harvey. She even served as a guest co-hostess on FabLife.
