Caroline Manzo, one of the original Real Housewives of New Jersey, has announced that she is leaving the series after five seasons.
It's been wonderful guys," the mother of three, 52, who was often the voice of reason on the show, posted on her Twitter exactly one minute after the show's reunion finale aired Sunday on Bravo.
"I've decided to leave #RHONJ this season was my last. Love and kisses to you all. Xoxoxo"
Although Glee's Lea Michele admits it feels like "I've lost two people, Cory and Finn," the actress says the tribute episode to her on- and off-screen love Cory Monteith "was very therapeutic."
"We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium, and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him," a stoic Michele, 27, told TV Week Australia. "It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn."
But did the actress ever consider leaving the hit show after the tragic death of her former boyfriend, 31, in July?
Gina Gershon has a wide, downturned mouth that can express disdain, arrogance and sexual mischief. She is never, ever boring.
Put her in a cascading wig of long blonde hair, get her to lower her voice to sound like an Italian-accented bassoon, and you have Donatella Versace.
Gershon plays the fashion legend, who survived the murder of her brother, Gianni, and a visit to rehab, in the Lifetime movie House of Versace, premiering Saturday, Oct. 5, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Halle Berry isn't only expecting a baby with new husband Olivier Martinez at any moment now, but CBS says the Oscar winner will star in a serialized drama coming to the network next summer.

As adoptive parents know, waiting for their child to come home is a happy – and nerve-racking – time.
For Dr. Jennifer Arnold, 39, and husband Bill Klein, 38, of TLC's The Little Couple, their path to parenthood has included heartbreak as well as joy. Earlier this year, they welcomed son Will home from China. Now, it looks as if they'll be doubly blessed in 2013 – the couple has been given the final approval to travel to India to pick up their new daughter, Zoey.
They share the happy news in an episode of their show airing Tuesday (10 p.m. ET) on TLC. While Will is learning his alphabet, Jen finds out that their final approval from the orphanage in India has come through in an exclusive clip from the episode (see below).
"We are thrilled to pieces that this is actually finally happening," Arnold says. "I think the process has made Bill and I at moments very nervous, anxious, but now I feel like I can actually start to get a little excited."
As we headed into Breaking Bad's finale Sunday night on AMC, the question wasn't whether it would end badly, but how badly.
SPOILER ALERT: Several plot developments revealed here.
As everyone looks forward to (and simultaneously dreads) Sunday's Breaking Bad finale, cast members are cleverly revealing what they can about the conclusion of the hit series. And it isn't much.
"I love the way it ended. The ending was an inevitable outcome," RJ Mitte, who plays Walt Jr. (a.k.a., Flynn), on the AMC show, during an interview with Take Part Live. "The way the family winds up, it's a real-life ending. It's not make believe."
He goes on to add, "It could be a happy ending ... there's so much. You have no idea."
"We're back, b––s!"
That's how Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, 25, and Jenni "JWoww" Farley, 27, kick off the trailer to season three of MTV's Snooki & JWoww, which premieres on Oct. 22.
The minute-and-a-half clip features the escapades of the former Jersey Shore stars and their fiancés, Jionni LaValle and Roger Mathews.
Marriage plans for Polizzi and LaValle seem to be right on track, as the pint-size starlet is even seen in a wedding gown.
Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul is doing some good.
As the Emmy-winning AMC show approaches its series finale on Sunday, the 34-year-old actor, who plays conflicted and hapless meth cooker Jesse, has used his celebrity to raise $1.8 million for his wife Lauren Parsekian's anti-bullying charity, The Kind Campaign. The nonprofit seeks to raise awareness of bullying among girls.
According to the New York Daily News, two winners of an online contest Paul sponsored will visit Hollywood, where they will attend the series finale viewing party on Sunday and hang out with the cast.
Apparently, imitation wasn't the sincerest form of flattery for Kanye West.
In a colossal Twitter rant posted Thursday, the rapper blasted Jimmy Kimmel after the funnyman ran a video spoof on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week that ribbed West's recent BBC interview, in which he boasted that he's "the No. 1 rock star on the planet."
But the parody sketch left West anything but amused, as was made evident in his litany of scathing Tweets.
