It's official! TheCaroline Manzo spinoff is full steam ahead! Caroline, Albert and their kids,Albie, Chris and Lauren, will be filming a pilot for Manzo'd With Children. “It’s one crowded house filled with personality, laughter and ham… in both pig and honey-baked forms.”
The show will follow Caroline, the “ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family." Along with the immediate Manzo clan, it will feature Caroline's sister Fran. I had a feeling about that one since she was featured on a previous episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey.
We all had a feeling that Bravo was setting them up for a spinoff all through season 5 – and we were all right! The show isn't a "for sure" thing. Once the pilot is filmed, they'll make a decision whether or not to pick it up for a full series. Manzo'd With Children is just the working title of the potential series.
Let's hope they get a different editing team for their show than the one working on RHONJ right now.
TELL US – WILL YOU TUNE IN TO SEE WHAT'S IN STORE?
The UK's Celebrity Big Brother has come to an end, which means Courtney Stodden will be flying home soon. And – prepare yourselves – she's bringing her new BFF, Lauren Harries, home with her to shoot a new reality TV show.
Happy Monday, y'all!
Lauren spilled the news after the Celebrity Big Brother finale. When asked if she plans to stay in touch with Courtney, Lauren said, "Oh yes, we are doing a program together for Channel 5, I don't know if anybody knows this yet."
The reality star mom of four (soon to be six) wore a black bikini with lace trim and wrote, "Going swimming with the kiddos! The pool makes me feel so much lighter! This belly #twins #excited…".
You have to give Kim credit – the woman has given birth four times and is in the middle of a fifth pregnancy. Her body looks fabulous!
In other news, Kim's husband, Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, is officially out for the rest of the NFL season! Kroy has a torn Achilles! Ouch! The Falcons Tweeted it out just a bit ago and added that it's for the whole season. "Both DE Kroy Biermann and FB Bradie Ewing are out for the season."
I cannot believe I am about to type the following sentences. I mean if you could see my face right now, you would see me with my mouth hanging open. Gretchen Rossi has some lofty, lofty ambition, y'all!
"We want to be Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie! That's the goal,” Gretchengushed to Life & Style. “At this point, we want to have, like, 26 kids.” Oh rllllyyy… well, perhaps she needs to borrow some money from Angie and Brad if that's her plan cause um… well, you know…
It was an intense time with Kody Brown and the family on last night's episode of Sister Wives, as they have chosen to participate in a panel discussion on polygamy at UNLV. Kody is concerned that it could turn into a debate. Not surprisingly, Robyn is unnecessarily fired up, Meri couldn't care less, and Janelle is the only one who comes across as sounding very intelligent. Christine doesn't want any part of the negativity, and daughter Aspyn wants to attend to support her mother.
We learn that Christine's Aunt Kristyn is on the opposing side of the panel, as is Kollene, the teenager that Kody's older children met when volunteering at a shelter for people trying to escape abusive polygamist situations. Christine's aunt is worried that the Browns are painting a rosy and unrealistically sunny picture of polygamy. Kristyn is one of eight children (her sister is Christine's mother), and her mother was the first of thirteen wives to her father. She married at seventeen and it wasn't long before her husband was finding new wives. Kristyn finally left him at age fifty. Something tells me Janelle is going to be very interested in hearing her story…
Kollene grew up in a cult-like polygamist family, and she is quick to admit that her experiences are far different from the Browns. While she's never said it, I have a feeling she suffered a lot of abuse. Kristyn shares that met Kody when he was first courting Christine and she was fully supportive of polygamy. Willie is also a panel member who was part of Warren Jeffs FLDS family. He is one of forty-two children and escaped the lifestyle with his mother and six sisters.
In the wake of the Lamar fiasco, Kim Kardashian is parting ways with the long-time Kardashian family publicist and hoping to create a new identity for herself besides sex tape vixen and reality TV queen. You think she'd be more grateful for the brave soul who made these do-nothings famous!
“Kim wants to set herself apart from the Kardashian p.r. machine, and Kanye West advised her to build her own team.” a source told Page Six.
So last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey the producers teased us with progress, yet again, but then we all ended up right back where we started with some sort of family drama nonsense.
Gaaawd. Gawwwwwd. Gaaaaaaaaaaaaawd. It's all sooooo boring. We don't care. And you know what, it doesn't even seem believable anymore. Ugh. That's like all I have to muster. Recap over. Bye! Just kidding, but I'm gonna go ahead and say the highlight of last night's show was Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis' 10 foot long ponytail extension from the My Little Pony Weave Collection! Seriously that synthetic tail she was sporting was the color of Kraft Mac & Cheese and looked like straight up plastic Easter grass. As RuPaul would say: 'Grrrrrrrrllllll…'
My other favorite part of the episode: Melissa Gorga's "singing". Her music career is about as believable as Penny's hair. Alright let's dive in!
So Teresa Giudice is pimping out Skinny Italian foods. She's got some sort of "store" where she has all the packages displayed. Is it edible? Apparently she's saving pasta from being boring by dumping a bunch of love in some pre-packaged rigatoni. Whatever. The real point of this meeting is so she can discuss the Melissa drama with her mom and mother-in-law. I'm not gonna snark – the mommies are adorable. They encourage Teresa to invite Joe and Melissa for a family lunch. Alls good now… for less time than it takes to boil a pot of spaghetti!
