Caroline Manzo Speaks Out After Instagram Users Criticize Granddaughter’s Crop Top

Just like most grandmas who are on social media, Caroline Manzo loves posting photos of her granddaughter Markie. However, the last one she shared did not go over well with her followers. Plenty of commenters took issue with the toddler’s outfit and made sure to let Caroline know.

As expected, Caroline had a strong reaction to the backlash. After all, this is the same woman who uttered the infamous line “Let me tell you something about my family. We’re as thick as thieves and protect each other ‘til the end.” And that’s exactly what she did by commenting on her own post in her granddaughter’s defense.

On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.

Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.

A lot of your favorite reality stars were all about the family time this past week on Instagram. Teen Mom star Leah Messer rooting for her daughters at cheer. Southern Charm cast member Kathryn Dennis celebrated her daughter Kensie’s 4th birthday. New York Housewife Ramona Singer hung out with her daughter Avery Singer. Luann de Lesseps saw Kinky Boots on Broadway with her kids. Tiny Harris celebrated her daughter Heiress’ birthday.

It feels like Christmas Eve for reality TV fans. There are so many new seasons on the way and that means that your favorite reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.

Orange County Housewife Tamra Judge was a good sport holding up an orange for the Real Housewives of Orange County opening credits…while she leaned on a scooter with her broken foot. New York Housewife Sonja Morgan shared a photo from one of her on-camera interview looks. Sonja’s costar Tinsley Mortimer ditched the glam squad (for a moment, at least) and  put on her own lip gloss.

Other reality stars shared photos hanging out with their kids like Teen Mom stars Javi Marroquin, Kail Lowry, and Leah Messer. Kristin Cavallari enjoyed spring break with her children. Rachel Zoe shared a sweet selfie with her two sons.

One of the more random photos from this week was of Real Housewives of Orange County alum Lydia Mclaughlin and Zac Efron- which was for her magazine, of course.

Check out all of those photos and more in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup in the gallery below.

Caroline & Al Manzo Vacation In Paris & London

Even though there has been some recent chatter about Caroline Manzo returning to Real Housewives of New Jersey, it doesn’t look that is happening- at least as of this moment. I would love to see her back in the fold going at it with her foes, but she just seems so much happier these days since she has nothing to do with this drama.

Caroline and her husband Al Manzo went on a romantic trip to London and Paris. That sounds a lot better than arguing with people at a Posche Fashion show or an opening for a faux restaurant.

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Season 9 Starts Filming In Two Weeks

As loyal as I am (and have always been) to Real Housewives of New Jersey, I cannot help wondering where the show goes from here. Season 6 (with those twins and Amber Marchese) was the worst ever. Then they took a break in filming Season 7 since there’s no way they could have done a season of this show while Teresa Giudice was in prison. Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga made up after years of feuding during that season and turned their one-liners against Jacqueline Laurita. Other than that, the season was just OK. I was expecting so much more after waiting forever and a half for it, but I obviously watched every single episode (many times over).

Jacqueline was out for Season 8 and we watched Siggy Flicker and Margaret Josephs go at it for most of the season. Conversely, Teresa experienced her first season where she was on good terms with every cast member- including her former enemy Danielle Staub. With Siggy off the show, we are only left with some second-rate tension between Dolores Catania and “Friends of the Housewives” Danielle to sustain us. Is this the beginning of the end?
