According to The Wrap, who first reported the news, Manzo's pilot has the working title of Manzo'd With Children and will follow her responsibilities as the "ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family." In addition to her grown children, Albie, Chris and Lauren, appearing on the show, The Wrap reports that Caroline's sister Fran will also be a show regular.

Manzo has starred on The Real Housewives of New Jersey since its debut in 2009. If her pilot gets picked up, she will be the first New Jersey housewife to land her own spinoff series on Bravo. (Manzo's sister Dina, who appeared on the first two season of RHONJ, is the host of Dina's Party on HGTV.)
