Caroline Manzo is hosting Lauren’s shower at Casa de Smothers because no Manzo ever, like ever, leaves that house. Seriously it is the black hole of adulthood. Their family motto is probably “We Fail To Launch Here!”
Eversince Lauren first got a salami-scented whiff of Vito wafting from across Albie’s dorm room, Caroline has been buying vintage tea cups on Etsy. For whatever reason they’re hot glue gunning tea cups to saucers and hanging them from chandeliers and floating them across the pool in parasols to create a tea party theme. 110 people are attending. Dina Manzo was invited, but is in California. Sadly, the grinning face of Greggy Bennett will not be appearing. Or so we’re led to believe…
Melissa Gorga’s kids had an exciting time in the city last night! As New York Fashion Week kicks off, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s daughter Antonia and her youngest son Joey participated in the Kids Rock Live runway show.
Melissa and Joe Gorga walked the carpet with middle son Gino as their kids got ready backstage. The proud mom showed off some photos and videos from their big night. Also in attendance at the event were La La Anthony and her family and backstage Melissa bumped into Snookiwith her son Lorenzo.
Check out the pics below – and a video of little Joey strutting his stuff.
It’s no secret that Lance Bass has been besties with Lisa Vanderpump for some time now, having made cameos here and there on both Vanderpump Rules and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now Lance is spreading his Housewives wings and weighing in on his faves across the franchises, as well as what he hopes to see in the future (anyone up for Lance’s hubby as the first male “housewife,” he wonders? Yes, please!)
Lance reveals, “I was a huge Real Housewives of Atlanta fan at the beginning. And now I’m a huge Beverly Hills fan, and I’m kind of a newbie fan of New York.” Although he’s branching out with his viewership, Lance admits that for now, “Beverly Hills has my heart.” Well, no surprise there! “Lisa [Vanderpump] definitely is one of my besties. It’s real fun to be able to watch and know someone on the show. But it’s also nice to know a lot of the backstory that other people don’t see. It’s really interesting because, to me, it’s like my own personal reality show,” explains Lance.
Danielle Staub was all about creating waves (um, tsunamis?) when she appeared on the early seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey. I’d venture a guess that she paved the way for all other housewives villains, but Danielle was certainly the original when she went up against the Manzo-Laurita clan. Of course, dare I say she’s having the last laugh as the ladies continue to battle, no longer having her to blame as the scape goat?
The prostitution whore author, singer, and one time lady pond dipper, peaced out from RHONJ to focus on her two daughters, leaving a table-flipping Teresa Giudice in her wake. She’s remained relatively quiet (for an ex-housewife, at least!) over the years, but Danielle is now revealing that her “love and light” philosophy has extended to her romantic life. The one time pot-stirrer has settled into a drama free life with her new fiance Joseph Masalta.
Last night on Manzo’d With Children the Manzo spawn were in for a rude awakening – particularly Lauren! Caroline Manzo is concerned about Lauren facing the realities of Vito’s income bracket instead of Al and Caroline’s. She wants to prepare Lauren for real married life… by letting Lauren and Vito live at home forever? And Albie took one small step in defying mommy by giving his sexy ex-girlfriend Britt another chance despite Caroline and Lauren’s disapproval. Time for Caroline to cut not only the apron strings, but the Chanel purse strings as well!
It’s morning in Manzo-land which means Caroline comes downstairs to a trashed kitchen and three lethargic kids standing around demanding breakfast. Lauren has been using the island as a makeup studio and Al’s credit card for everything – she’s never paid for gas in her life (and doesn’t think she should have to). Caroline rampages about how the kids don’t clean up and act like immature brats expecting her to do everything for them. What does she expect after all her microMOMaging. Caroline is especially pissed because she’s supposed to be going on a tennis date with Al.
Last night on Manzo’d With Children Mother’s Day was celebrated with a throwback photoshoot, Albie and Chris still pretended they don’t have jobs, and Lauren decided to never leave home again. Actually they barely leave the kitchen… what is happening in the rest of that house!?
Caroline Manzo is stressed. First Chrissofart left mommy and is now debauched in Hoboken. Now Lauren, about to be married to Vito the living incandescence of an Al-flavored mozzarella ball, wants to MOVE. OUT. Caroline cannot have this.
Caroline tries to convince Lauren that she and Vito should just stay at home to save their money, because Caroline is not giving them a downpayment on a house – only utilities in her house! This is what passes for responsibility in Manzo-land? Shouldn’t Lauren already have savings given that she’s been living with her mother her entire life? Caroline would prefer they make the ‘smart choice’ to live with her until they can afford to buy a nice (re: luxury) instead of living someplace dumpy (see: Crissofart’s apartment).
But Vito doesn’t want to live with Ma and Pa Smothers, he wants the freedom to show his love to Lauren and admits to his fiancé that he wouldn’t feel comfortable “in the bedroom” living at her mother’s. Does Lauren care what Vito thinks or wants? #RhetoricalQuestion.
It was likely a double celebration as Amber finished her last round of radiation a few weeks ago. At the time, she toasted the occasion with a friend, writing “Last day of radiation. A little celebratory wine with my girlfriend @constantina2015 ! #rhonj #friends #fucancer.”
