Nothing like the scent of fresh-washed laundry! What’s better than to have your mom do your laundry for you – at the age of 28, no less? This week’s episode of Manzo’d with Children starts with Caroline Manzo tending to her cubs’ (aka Albie and Chris) clothes-folding duties and chatting it up with her hubby Al Manzo. Al thinks the boys will be staying with them for 6 months – MAX! The fact that Caroline is even folding their laundry is code for her never wanting them to leave, IMO. Suddenly, a black tank top, ahem, a black female tank top, is found amongst the basketball mesh shorts and boxers. Caroline wants to barf at the sight of it, but is going to wait for the owner to claim it before she raises hell trying to figure out where it came from. Hint: Albie has a girlfriend. But man, wouldn’t it be kinda fun to meet Chris’ girlfriends once in awhile?
Real Housewives of New Jersey
Amber and Jim Marchese were Andy’s guests tonight on Watch What Happens Live. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars were candid about their first season on the show and Jim made us cringe three or four times. Just another day with the Jersey crew….
Andy starts the show telling Jim he’s brave for coming. Andy received thousands of tweets asking him to tell Jim that he’s a douchebag. Jim laughs, “I’m completely shocked, I have to be honest.”
A week after receiving a 15 month sentence for fraud, Teresa Giudice is speaking out about going to prison and admitting that she feels guilty “every day” for her actions. However Teresa says she is ready to learn from her mistakes, focus on the positives, and come back stronger.
“I wish I could do everything differently,” a tearful Teresa acknowledges. “But then again, maybe not, because this is a life lesson I need to learn and will learn, and will teach my children for the rest of my life, just as Judge Salas told me she expected me to do.”
“I have to look at what will come of this while I’m away,” the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star accepts. “The bond between my children and their father, Joe, my honey, will grow stronger and stronger. And that is something I will be grateful for.”

Anything for publicity! Last week when Teresa and Joe Giudice were both handed prison sentences in their fraud case, former Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Danielle Staub, had some not-so-nice things to say about her former friends on twitter.
In just one example, she replied to a fans tweet regarding the sentencing. “@FamilyIsLoyalty: Ohhhh @daniellestaub dontcha frigin LOVE karma baby!!!!!!! Yup.”
“Yup.” Classy. Well, I guess Danielle realized that she could get a little publicity — nothing like capitalizing on someone’s tragedy — so she has changed her tune in order to get on TV. (Somewhere we were hoping never to see her again.)

During a WWHL interview earlier this week Teresa Giudice told Andy Cohen that she didn’t “fully understand” her guilty plea meant she was admitting guilt to federal fraud charges. Despite her claim, prosecutors for the US Attorney’s office say did understand, but as NeNe Leakes points out they don’t really know how Teresa operates…
The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star claims that she thought her lawyers were going to fight for her and she put her faith “in their hands” only to find herself going to prison for 15 months! Oops. Teresa claims she’s going to learn to read things from now on – starting, I hope, with the dictionary Kathy Wakile gave her where she can look up G – for guilty.
The prosecutor’s office, however, insists that Teresa was very aware of what she was doing when she signed that plea. They do understand that the very basis of Teresa’s defense was that she signs her name to things she doesn’t read, right? Like, duh – who has time to read when you could shop! Or bedazzle something! Or flip tables!

Interestingly, Teresa claims she isn’t angry with Jim Marchese for throwing the cheating rumor in her face. He was just the “drunken messenger” she says.

Part two of Joe and Teresa Giudice’s interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live aired tonight and they didn’t disappoint. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars talked about their prison sentences, their current financial situation (broke, broke, broke), their support systems, why they continue doing the reality show and so much more.
Andy starts right off with Teresa’s claims in court that the show is fake. “In court papers you claim that The Real Housewives of New Jersey is scripted. ‘It is little more than a work of fiction engineered by Bravo TV through scripted lines and clever editing.’ What did you mean by that?” Teresa responds, “Meaning that there are editors on the show and our producers”, Andy cuts her off “were you told to flip the table?” Teresa says “no flipping the table I did.” Andy asks if she was told to fight with Melissa or Joe Gorga. “My family coming on the show, you know Andy, I didn’t know they were coming on the show.” Andy says “you didn’t want them on the show,” Teresa jumps in “not that I didn’t want them on the show, they never told me they were coming on the show.” Andy tries to end it with “we’ve had this discussion many times, ya ya ya.” Teresa says “When my family came on, I didn’t like the way I was portrayed. I was the villain, I was this mean person. People would come up to me and they’re like ‘oh my God you’re so nice’ and I’m like ‘what do you mean?’ and they’re like ‘you come off so mean on the show.”
