Offensive? Not even close! Caroline was honored to be included in South Park‘s spoof on all things Jersey.
You know you’ve succeeded in the world when South Park deems you worthy of being made fun of, and that’s exactly how Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo feels. The Oct. 13 episode of South Park took aim at Caroline, her fellow Housewives, and countless other Jersey-based celebs — and she loved it! “Pop culture is defined through South Park, so it’s a huge step to think you could be recognized on it,” Caroline tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
“On one hand, you know it’s a parody and they’re poking fun at you … but it’s also tremendous to be recognized by a show like that.”
The episode featured Caroline getting her entire face shaved at a Jersey-style salon, and picking a fight with South Park housewife Sharon Marsh. And Caroline wasn’t the only one who loved the episode. Her kids did too!
“The kids loved it,” she tells us. “They were like, ‘I can’t believe you’re on South Park!’”
She also thinks people need to lighten up and not take the episode too seriously.
“A lot of people said it was a diss on Jersey,” Caroline tells us. “But you know what? It wasn’t. It was fun.”
