Caroline Manzo Talks Menopause, Unanswered Questions About Aging

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" matriarch Caroline Manzo is facing a new battle that may be even bigger than her feud with Teresa Giudice -- it's menopause. And just like everything else in her life, Manzo plans to take on her new enemy on national TV.

“It happens. I don’t care, why should I care? There are millions and millions of women going through it, as I am," Manzo said on the set of "New York Live." "There are so many unanswered questions to many things I’m going through. We are going to have a giant menopause huddle.”

Throughout this season, Manzo will take viewers with her on a journey to find out what is happening to her body, hoping to help other women whose bodies are also changing.

“I’m still going through it with the pills and the creams and the night sweats," Manzo admits. "I look at my husband sometimes and think, 'You are the cutest thing in the world' and he comes out of the room four seconds later and I’m like, 'Watch out!' But I feel it happening and it’s a process, one that I don’t understand and one that I’m going through and I’m not ashamed of it. I’m going to do it fabulous. I’m going to do it great. I’m going to own it. I’m getting old but I’m going to be dynamite.”

We expect nothing less from this tough cookie.
