Are you missing your favorite stars from the new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey? If so, you won’t have to wait much longer to see Caroline Manzo and her family, including sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita. Manzo’d With Children premieres on Bravo on October 5.

The RHONJ spin off will feature former star Caroline in her crazy every day life taking care of her three adult children who all still live at home.

Her daughter, Lauren, is planning her wedding all while running her own beauty bar business.

Older brothers Albie and Chris Manzo have moved back home after living in Hoboken for the last few years. Albie introduces his new girlfriend to the family, and she doesn’t get as warm of a reception from them as he hoped.

The show will also feature Caroline’s husband, Al, with special appearances by Jacqueline and Caroline’s other siblings. Don’t expect to see Dina Manzo, though. The two still aren’t speaking.

“I knew it was something that I had in mind for a while,” Caroline told Fashion & Style a few months back of her decision to leave RHONJ. “I knew that I have given the show all I could. You know, when you have no more to give it’s time to go. I made this decision and I’m at peace with it, and I’m cool. I’m happy. I don’t miss it.”

As for her new show, it goes in a completely different direction.

“We had an absolute blast filming it,” she told Bravo’s The Dish. “It’s fun. It’s lighthearted. You really get the picture of who we are as a family, so we’ll see what happens.”
