Caroline Manzo


Oh God… pass the xanax and gimme access to Jacqueline Laurita's bottomless wine cellar quick, because the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 5 trailer has just been released and all I can say is Holiiiiiie Canoli!

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!

C. Wonder Celebrates Mother's Day and Caroline Manzo's Let Me Tell You Something Book Launch

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! 



Can Real Housewives of New Jersey just be over all ready? Season 5 hasn't reached the airways but I'm already tired of the drama! 

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!

Below Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile plant the seeds of season 5 drama. I hope they remember to water their plants with water, not wine (or BLK! or Fabellini!). 

Garden of Evil, anyone?

Little Town New Jersey Grand Opening

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."

We grabbed the photos from the event, but only see the Manzo family posing for pics (along with business partners Michael Sinensky and Sean McGarr).  The invitation promised that guests would include "the cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey including Caroline Manzo, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile, Joe Gorga and Joe Giudice."  I'll keep checking to see if they update the photos!

Um… so what were people saying about Real Housewives of New Jersey being more positive? I guess this is what I have to say: what comes around goes around, ladies! 

Caroline Manzo has been hinting that husband Albert Manzo hasn't always been faithful. In recent press for her book she commented about alleged affairs. And rumors surfaced that Teresa Giudice pointed out the hypocrisy of Caroline calling out Jr. Mafia Juicy Giudice for fidelity problems when Albert is no better. Caroline claimed she did not believe Albert had any "long-term affairs" but conceded that "he is a man." 

All Things Real Housewives reports that this season the subject of Albert's extramarital activities will be under scrutiny. “Women are coming forward revealing Albert cheats on Caroline,” a source reveals. “It has gotten to the point where it was unavoidable and had to be addressed on-camera.”

Caroline Manzo has promised a more peaceful season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. She's also promised the ladies are working to mend fences and self-reflect over the last two seasons where famewhoring and petty drama got the best of them. I certainly hope I never again have to watch a reunion like the last two! 

Apparently the cast that brawls together, stays together because Caroline says her friendship with Teresa Giudice is currently a work in progress, but they're working on it! 

“I’m thrilled Melissa [Gorga] and Teresa are talking, that they’re trying to work things out, that’s the way things should be," Caroline tells Naughty But Nice Rob. "Between Teresa and myself it remains to be seen. There’s been a lot of self-reflection, a lot of conversation trying to mend a lot of broken bridges. I can’t tell you how the story’s going to end because I don’t know.”
