While we all wait for the debut of season 5, the Real Housewives of New Jersey continue to promote their books and other projects. Over Mother's Day weekend, Caroline Manzo made another stop at the C. Wonder store at the Garden State Plaza.
Since it was Mother's Day weekend, Albie and Chris came to support Caroline – and provide some comic relief.
Well, a very reliable source just confirmed EXCLUSIVELY to Reality Tea that the recently reported RHONJ salaries are not true! In fact – they're totally off base.
"All 5 RHONJ cast members, Teresa, Melissa, Caroline, Jacqueline and Kathy made the same amount this season – $600k. That wasn't always the case but for season 5 they are all on the same salary," our source shares.
Of course Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have been perfecting their soap opera skills in the off-season and with performances this rich they really oughta be bumping Susan Lucci out of the Emmy Awards category for most dramatic performance by a female lead. You can check it out below!
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo continues to promote her new book "Let Me Tell You Something..". Tonight she headed out to NYC to attend a fan book signing at the C. Wonder store, dressed in an outfit from C. Wonder. Caroline shared, “I definitely have dressed the part of ‘author’ in my fabulous C. Wonder outfit, but I certainly feel like one with all my gracious and loving readers!”
Along with the fans there for autographs, someone brought adorable cupcakes with mini book covers. You can see them in the gallery. What can I say? I'm a sucker for sweets. Caroline Tweeted, "Look at the adorable cupcakes @Gtowncupcake made 4 my book signing @cwonderstores! They r miniature book covers + CWonder logo – delicious!"
Albert was on hand and shared, "I’m really proud of her for all she has accomplished and all she will accomplish.”
It looks like things are looking up for the Manzos in 2013. The boys, Albie and Chris, are partners in a new restaurant, Lauren's business is still going strong and it looks like Caroline's book is a sales hit. It's like the blissful calm before the storm, right? That storm being the season premiere of RHONJ in just one month!

The ever impossible to decipher ladies of Jersey have been touting their newly revamped relationships claiming they're all getting along famously now. We totally don't believe them, but a breather from the incessant fighting would be a welcome change!
Apparently we were right to be suspicious. Reality Tea's source EXCLUSIVELY reveals that "Jersey is phony as ever!" Aaaahhhh… now that's the Jersey we know and love to hate.
"The woman are all acting their way through this season," our source shares. "Bravo has forced them to film together and 'get along'. The fans were sick of the fighting so they were all under orders to get along at least for the cameras." Just as I suspected!
Oooohhhh… they're back! And trying a whole different spin on things Bravo is releasing a juicy Real Housewives of New Jersey teaser that rolls out like a full-on network drama. I'm loving it – and I know you will be too!
Last night the Manzo boys, Chris and Albie, kicked off their newest business venture: a restaurant called Little Town New Jersey.
The restaurant officially opens to the public today, but last night invited guests got to take a sneak peek ahead of the opening. We were among the invited, but none of us were able to attend fearing for our safety due to scheduling and logistics issues.
According to the invite: "Little Town NJ offers a diverse menu of unique regional Jersey classics inspired by local ingredients, emphasizing New Jersey farms and purveyors, as well as wineries and breweries. LTNJ will also feature various dining programs from farm-to-table pre-fix brunch buffet to “Sunday Gravy” which will serve Caroline Manzo’s famous meatballs and on weekends an on-site farmer’s market, where local farmers and suppliers can share their produce, which will also be featured in menu items."
