One of the original members of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" has announced she's leaving the show after five seasons.
Caroline Manzo made the announcement Sunday on Twitter and on her blog on Bravo's website after "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" aired the final part of the show's reunion.
She says the reality show -- known for its brawls, screaming and family fights -- has become something she hopes her future grandchildren will never see.
Manzo, one of the celebrities who appeared in July at the Times Free Press' She: An Expo for Women, wrote that she's filming a pilot spinoff called "Manzo'd With Children" that would give "a very different look" at her family.
An email to Bravo seeking comment wasn't immediately returned today.
