The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo says she expected "yelling, screaming, and tears" on Monday's reunion.

"I NEVER expected Andy to get tossed like a rag doll," she writes on her Bravo blog. "I was in complete shock when that happened."

When Teresa Guidice flipped out on Danielle Staub -- screaming two inches from her face -- Manzo, 49, says, "I wanted to cry. Seriously, I did."

Luckily, after that moments passed, "it never got to that level again," she says.

She says Monday's reunion was "the last time we were all going to be together." (Staub, 48, reportedly was fired from the show's third season, which begins filming soon.)

Now, Manzo says she can begin "exiting the 'crazy turnpike' and finding the 'sunshine and lollipop highway.'"
