I never would have pictured Caroline Manzo and Amy Schumer getting along or having a lot in common. Caroline is known to be a very straight laced, no nonsense kind of person. On the other hand, Amy is just so out there and usually inappropriate.
After giving it a little more thought, I would say that the one thing these two have in common is their “tell it like it is” attitude. Neither Amy nor Caroline would ever be afraid to share what’s on her mind. Nevertheless, I’m still kind of surprised that Caroline was mentioned in Amy Schumer’s book. Do these two know each other? It just seems so random.
Poor Caroline Manzo! If you follow the Manzo’d with Children star on social media, you know that she posted a ton of photos of her foot injury, but there’s a lot more to the story.
Caroline’s foot injury actually ended up having a lot of residual effects on her body. She took the time to rest her foot and that took a major toll on her body. Now that Caroline is finally okay to move around, she is taking matters into her own hands.
If you’re not following Albie Manzo on Instagram, you really should be. Caroline Manzo’s oldest son has been working out and he looks good. Shout out to Bravo’s The Daily Dish for pointing this out because I ended up finding a lot of great things on his Instagram account.
Real Housewives of New Jersey didn’t seem like Dina Manzo‘s happy place when she reluctantly appeared on it in her last season. But no matter! She’s found her happy place in real life now, with younger love interest, businessman Dave Cantin. The couple met through work in Dina’s charitable organization, Project Ladybug.
After her divorce, Dina says she was sort of “done” with dating. “I was fine just never falling in love again,” says Dina, but adds “you know, I guess some things happen when you’re not really looking for it.” Cantin was also in the process of divorcing when the duo met. Dina attributes their compatibility to their shared passion for helping others. She says she and Dave are both “really passionate about helping children with cancer,” which is the mission of Project Ladybug.
Not everyone is cut out to be a Real Housewife and there’s nothing wrong with that. In all honesty, it might even be a compliment. Sometimes Bravo casts women who are just way too normal to be on reality TV. There’s nothing wrong with them as humans, but they are just not fit to expose their lives on reality television.
I have no idea why some of these people were cast, but it happened and we all had to sit through it. Most of the Real Housewives ladies are amazing, then there are some that were just way too boring.
Sure, every show in the Real Housewives franchise is unique is, but there are certain elements that carry through in every series. Although each Housewife is unique, there is pretty much always one person in each show who is a real stickler for etiquette- and wants every single person to be aware of it.
These are the ladies who live by a set of social rules and love to remind the other cast members about it whenever they possibly can. You know who I’m talking about and there’s one of these girls in each series. Sometimes these ladies are just genuinely trying to share some guidance based on their past experiences. And other times these are the kind of women who just like to hear themselves talk about etiquette over and over again.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Above: Responding to negative comments about her body, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna shared, “Chill Bitches. My body is a healthy body. I am proud of this body. It is strong and healthy. We come in all shapes and sizes, body shaming is wrong on every level. It’s a terrible message to send our daughters. #AllBodiesAreBeautiful #BeYou”
