On Manzo’d With Children this week, not only did we learn that Chris Manzo was working on a children’s book, but we also watched as Caroline had to deal with one particularly gross habit from her future son-in-law. In fact, when Vito walked into the kitchen with his barely there robe on and then continued to drink milk directly from the container, Caroline and Lauren Manzo looked a bit disgusted.
Despite their horror, the family managed to work it all out by the end of the episode, but we couldn’t help to wonder how Caroline really felt about the incident. I mean, admit it, we all have that one family member who does it and annoys the heck out of us. Luckily for us, Caroline dished all about the incident and the episode in her latest blog.

It seems like no one Vanderpump Rules can get along unless there’s a party involved. Add a celebrity to that equation and they are besties! This weekend the cast attended a Foo Fighters concert and ended up backstage partying with frontman Dave Grohl!
Ariana Madix and Kristen Doute were even able to put aside their differences long enough to drink with a rock star. Hopefully no cheating was involved… although that could get very exciting! #MustSeeTV!
We haven’t heard much from Angela “Big Ang” Raiola recently as the beloved reality star has been battling throat cancer. However, after opting for two major surgeries instead of chemotherapy, the Mob Wives scene-stealer is recovering well after doctors removed a tumor the size of a lemon from her throat.
Big Ang is rarely filmed for the VH1 series without an ever-present cigarette dangling from her giant painted lips, but that is no longer the case. Diagnosed in March, Big Ang immediately gave up the nasty habit cold turkey. She’s ready to be back in business, and her struggle with cancer, as well as relationship stresses with husband Neil Murphy, will be featured on the upcoming season of Couple’s Therapy.
John Bonavia appeared on MM in March 2014 and was described as a financial advisor worth more than $1 million. The former model was stuck in the party boy mentality and running in a wealthy Hollywood circle. As he turned 30, John was ready to settle down and Patti hope to find him a woman who would encourage him to grow up. Guess that didn’t turn out to well!
This week on Manzo’d With Children, we learned that Caroline Manzo’s son, Chris, decided that he wanted to write a children’s book. As shocking as that may seem, it is true, but what made him decide to ditch all of his other business plans for something so different? Luckily, Chris Manzo opened up about his decision recently, and admitted that he is just not a “suit and tie business man.”
In fact, according to Manzo, he hired someone to take care of all the technical business stuff for him, while he just focused on what he wanted to do – write the book. As for his mom and the rest of the Manzo family, they are nothing short of extremely proud of Chris.

Back at Shannon’s Aries party, Tamra Judge is spitting mad that Vicki is allowing Brooks to call her a liar and a backstabber. The unladylike doth protests too much!
Tamra believes Vicki is so influenced by Brooks (and his lies) she may be turning into Brooks! Shannon is hard-pressed to believe that the never, ever dim-witted Vicki could be bamboozled by a con man, so possibly, just possibly, she knows Brooks is faking cancer but is going along with it. Even Tamra can’t believe that – or at least that’s what Tamra is telling the cameras because the only time Tamra has Vicki’s back is when she’s stabbing it!
About last week’s abysmal start, Kim says, “It was all kind of a blur – the scores and what they [the judges] said. I am really disappointed in myself because I obviously can do much better. But I mean where can you go from here but up?”
Kim focuses on Atlanta for “Hometown Glory” week.
“I grew up in Connecticut,” explains Kim, “but I have been here in Atlanta for 16 years. Atlanta’s where Big Poppa all my dreams came true. I met my amazing husband here. And I have had five of my children – out of six – here in Atlanta.”
Does Kim dance better this week? Avoid elimination?
On last night’s Ladies of London, we were treated to all the fabulousness that the London elite social scene offers. Like headstands in cocktail dresses and humping in onesies! After last week’s (best)friendship-ending tea between Marissa Hermer and Juliet Angus, it’s time for a bit of light hearted fare, no? But tensions rise this week between Juliet, Julie Montagu, and Caroline Stanbury as Caroline’s “sharp tongue” – and pajama antics with husbands who aren’t married to her – rub both ladies the wrong way.
It’s Christmas in London, and the ladies are decking the halls with merriment, and what looks like a tropical vacation for Juliet and family. Annabelle Neilson meets Julie out for tea to catch up after the holidays and chat about Julie’s new business. She’s created “JUB” which stands for “Julie’s Unbelievable Balls” (Heeee! Am I thirteen years old? Because I love this…), an energy snack for workouts. She admits that teaching yoga won’t fund Mapperton, so mama’s gotta get those coins elsewhere. Meanwhile, Annabelle is developing a children’s book series about feelings. Annabelle grew up feeling suffocated, lonely, and fearful about school. She was sent to 20 childhood therapists to work through her anxiety, but is now finding solace in creatively expressing her struggles through books she hopes will help other children with their feelings. (Well, Annabelle: consider one book pre-ordered by me for my very own anxious kindergartner. Thank you!) Julie comments that because Annabelle is so private, she never knew this deeper side of her, or the struggles she’s faced. I have to say, these two women seem to be forging a genuine friendship, which is refreshing to watch unfold!
