"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Caroline Manzo will give her husband of 29 years, Albert Manzo, a pass when it comes to infidelity - if it happened decades ago.
The Bravo star and "Let Me Tell You Something" author stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Thursday, where she explained her feelings about cheating.
"If something happened 25 years ago, I'm with this man 32 years, he is my heart, he is my everything. If something happened 25 years ago, one night, faceless, whatever," she told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover.
Caroline has asked her husband if he's ever strayed from their marriage.
"Of course I've asked him... He said no," she said. "He could be lying, who knows, I don't care... If I were to find out it happened, I wouldn't care at this point in the game because of the history we have together."
Adding, "He doesn't know if I cheated on him."
Caroline's policy does not, however, apply to recent times.
"Oh no, if it happened yesterday, we have problems," the mother of three said.
The reality star, who has never been shy about sharing her thoughts, also offered up a few more relationship rules.
"You can't be [a] serial cheater, you can't disrespect your spouse, you can't disrespect your family," she added.
As for her future on Bravo as a "Real Housewife," Caroline told Billy and Kit, "I'm there," when asked about returning for the upcoming season.
