According to All About TRH‘s article, Manzo did film a scene for the upcoming season already (with Teresa Giudice) and their source claimed she “will make an appearance or two” during the season.
We reached out to multiple production insiders to find out if this could be pointing towards a full time return for Manzo.
They informed us that is absolutely not the case, especially given that Manzo no longer resides here and has already left the show twice, so it wouldn’t really make sense for her to be back again. Also, they dished that “production found her rather vapid” the last time she was on, and they aren’t interested in having her return full time at this point, even if she was interested in it.
Regardless, we are sure her appearing even for a short scene or two will be played up by Bravo in the preview for the season.
