It's been rumored that Caroline Manzo's 29-year-marriage to Albert Manzo has seen some serious ups and downs, most notably because of Al's alleged affairs. And of course his insane work schedule at The Brownstone!
It's also been rumored that the reason Caroline went off on Kim D during the Real Housewives of New Jersey finale is because Johnny Karagiorgis (or Penny!) brought up Al's reported mistress on film, which Bravo cut from the final airing!
Caroline has made no secret that she wishes Al were more present in their marriage and would consider retiring. But now sources tell Perez Hilton that their marriage is majorly on the rocks and Caroline is forcing Al to spend time with her! They do seem really disconnected, I mean he seems like he never wants to be around. Sad.

"[Caroline was] distraught and terrified that the rumors would become a story-line that would destroy her supposedly rock-solid marriage," a source reveals. Because of the leak Bravo allegedly offered Caroline the spinoff to prevent her from leaving the network.
The source adds that the marriage has been unraveling for quite some time! "Tensions started to rise between Caroline and Al over his work schedule. She thought it was important for Al to take time off from work to spend more time with the family."
The source adds, "It really frustrated Caroline that Al refused to listen to her. He would continuously put work before their relationship and his family.”
Well, the Manzos have officially landed their spinoff Manzo'd With Children, which has already started filming. The family has been promoting the hell out of it to get viewers excited. They've posted a ton of behind-the-scenes shots on instagram which are below. Enjoy!
