Caroline Manzo believes there’s almost too much drama between Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider on this season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

The “Manzo’d With Children” star weighed in on the reality stars’ ongoing feud, which stemmed from Giudice claiming Goldschneider’s husband was cheating on her and Goldschneider then saying the affair rumor would be like her spreading lies that Gia Giudice was doing “coke in the bathroom.”

“I don’t know what would possess [Teresa] to say something like that. I don’t care how much you dislike someone,” Manzo, who left “RHONJ” after Season 5 aired in 2013, told Us Weekly.

Page Six exclusively reported in February that Teresa made up the rumor out of fear she was going to be axed from the Bravo show for not having enough drama.

“She’s being watched by the network and needed a story to stir the pot. She had zero proof [that he cheated] and made up the story because Bravo has been getting rid of original ‘Housewives,’” a source told us at the time. “[She’s] too expensive and they can filter through different women She’s desperately trying to stay relevant.”

But her attorney, James Leonard Jr., said Teresa has always been “real and authentic.”

Manzo, 59, said it’s “possible” that producers encouraged the feud but said “two wrongs don’t make a right” and acknowledged Goldschneider isn’t innocent either.

“There are plenty of analogies you could have chosen without bringing [Teresa’s 20-year-old daughter] Gia into it. Gia — from what I’ve seen and what I have known from that kid, historically — is a great kid. She is wise beyond her years,” the “Let Me Tell You Something” author said.

“Why would you come back with something like that to someone that’s not there to defend herself, to someone who’s not involved in anything, and to someone who’s only 20 years old.”

Jackie, 44, later admitted she had never heard that Gia does cocaine and was simply making an analogy.

“She’s a great girl, so it was just an analogy and I never wanted to hurt anybody,” she said.
