Early this yr, Bravo higher-ups eliminated Brandi Glanville from Final Ladies Journey, sending her house from Morocco after two alleged “lewd” incidents.”
One, the one which issues, apparently concerned Caroline Manzo. And, allegedly, undesirable and inappropriate touching.
All that the world has heard from Brandi is that she needs Bravo to launch the audio as an alternative of sitting on exculpatory proof till the season airs.
For the primary time because the incident, Caroline herself is talking publicly.
Caroline Manzo appeared as a visitor on New York Stay, the place the host clearly touched upon no matter could have occurred in Morocco.
“I can’t say much,” Caroline started.
However she unexpectedly clarified that that is “only because it’s not good for my headspace.”
“But,” Caroline went on, “it took a lot for me to go back there.”
She stated that, referring to returning to the franchise following a few decade-long hiatus.
Caroline appeared on 5 seasons of The Actual Housewives of New Jersey. She walked away in 2013.
Nonetheless, Peacock managed to win her over, convincing her to affix Season 4 of Final Ladies Journey.
Caroline defined that she signed on with solely the “best of intentions.”
And he or she had “the highest of hopes to do something fun” through the group journey to Morocco.
“Unfortunately, it didn’t work out for me that way,” Caroline lamented.
She saved issues obscure, saying solely that she “came home early.”
That she definitely did. Caroline and Brandi left Morocco across the identical time. Their respective contexts for departure have been very totally different.
“At this point, I just truly don’t have the space in my head to talk about it, so I’d rather not,” Caroline defined.
“But I would imagine it would unfold on the series when it airs,” she predicted.
Caroline then added: “And there’ll be a lot said then.” We definitely have related expectations.
So, to understate issues dramatically, did Caroline’s expertise returning to actuality TV become a constructive expertise?
“It didn’t,” she confirmed. “It didn’t.”
And we stay sorry to listen to that. Curiously, there are some things that we did not hear from Caroline in that interview.
Initially, she didn’t point out Brandi Glanville. In any respect. Not in a constructive, destructive, or impartial capability.
In response to studies, she and Brandi gave the impression to be having an excellent time on the social gathering, then Caroline later expressed some type of displeasure over how Brandi could or could not have touched her whereas kissing on the social gathering.
Reportedly, Brandi later realized that Caroline was sad and despatched her an apology of some type, or no less than touched base. With out Caroline describing her ideas, it’s unclear how she felt at the moment.
Caroline additionally made no point out of sexual misconduct. She clearly is avoiding speaking about all of this. It may very well be due to trauma or it may very well be as a result of she is beneath contract.
In different phrases, possibly she is accusing Brandi of great wrongdoing. Or possibly she wish to clear Brandi’s identify, however can’t with out approval from producers.
The reality could lie someplace in between. Peacock appears intent upon sitting upon all of their footage and proof till this season airs. That’s unlucky.
