News from the Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies has been on the quiet side since the last season went off the air. Its spin-off show Manzo’d With Children isn’t even on right now. So basically no one is getting into arguments and even the self-promotion has gone down (very slightly). This week, however, there are some little slivers of news from the Garden State reality stars.
A lot of people find it difficult hitting a milestone birthday, but Manzo’d With Children star Albie Manzo actually seems very content about turning 30 and he has made the best out of what many other people turn into a frightening situation. Caroline Manzo‘s oldest son has made a lot of changes and set some goals to make this new decade of his life a happy and successful one.
I’m not really surprised that Albie has this attitude since it seems like he’s been on this self-improvement path for a while now. Nevertheless, props to Albie for striving to better himself.
It’s so crazy to think that Caroline Manzo – the lady who is famous for being all about her family – is actually living in an empty nest, but it is true. None of her three children live at home anymore and her daughter Lauren Manzo is expecting a baby of her own. So it makes sense for the soon-to-be grandma to revamp her house to match her new life.
The Manzo family matriarch has been giving her home a makeover to fit in with its new empty nest status and her impending life as a grandmother. Caroline opened up about her vision to change up the house.
Bravo PR shared this week that Manzo’d with Children’s viewer numbers are standing strong in season number three. They Tweeted out, “Man-oh-MANZO! Lst wk’s ep of #Manzod With Children hit a season high in all key demos w/ 572K P18-49, 703K P25-54 and 1.3M ttl viewers.”
At this point, putting your name on products is customary for Real Housewives and Housewives alums. However, I can’t help wondering how involved these women are was “designers.” The only one that I’m not doubting when it comes to slapping her name on a product is Caroline Manzo who is making her own soaps in her kitchen. She is probably the only one that actually has a hand in making her own products and now you can buy Caroline’s soaps on Etsy.
Since Caroline is known for cooking up massive Italian meals for her family, I figured she would focus on something food related, so the soap selling seems a little random to me, but I guess it is made in her kitchen so that does make sense. And I really do think it’s nice that she is so genuinely involved in her own business, which is not always the case for these reality stars.
On the Manzo’d With Childrenseason three trailer, it was pretty clear that the struggle to get pregnant is Lauren’s story line. Thankfully this story has a happy ending and an even better beginning is a about to start.
Caroline weighs in on the Teresa and Kathy/Rosie situation: “Kathy is good people, Rosie is good people and they’re doing it from their heart. So I’d like Teresa to open up her heart and just understand that people make mistakes and say bad things they don’t mean sometimes and I think it’s time she kind of grows up and accepts them back.”
The time has come for Lauren Manzo and her husband Vito Scalia to move out of Caroline Manzo‘s house. I have no idea how Caroline is coping with the news, but I’m sure that she is ultimately happy for Vito and Lauren.
Not only are Lauren and Vito moving out of the Manzo family home, but they are actually owners of their new house. There aren’t too many other details out right now, but I think it is safe to assume the home is in New Jersey and in close proximity to where Caroline lives – or at least I hope that’s the case.
