Jacqueline shared at the event, “My husband and I are so excited to be here and I am so grateful to have family and friends along with us today. I wanted to thank all of you for being here in support of this amazing cause and also being here in support of each other. It's the support of others that give us our strength, hope, and encouragement to persevere on our quest to bring out the best child that our child can be, and remind us that we are not alone.”
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?
Blk water must not be doing as bad as some people say! Albie Manzo shares that blk is launching a line of flavored waters this summer.
Albie took to Instagram, writing, "And here….we….GO!!! @blkbeverages #getexcited July 2013 August 2013." Sharing the above photo, which depicts four new flavors of water – black lemonade, mango coconut, tropical punch and blueberry acai.
The Manzo boys have said that they joined in on the Little Town New Jersey restaurant to make some cash since they weren't pulling any paychecks from the BLK venture just yet. But I'm guessing that BLK is doing better than we think, otherwise they wouldn't be investing more money to launch this new flavored line. Right?
TELL US – WILL YOU GIVE THE FLAVORED BLK WATER A TRY?
The first question is asking what the deal is with her and Dina. Caroline shares that she's sick of answering that question over and over, but she shares "everything is the same. We say hello but we're not friends. "
Then came the inevitable question of what makes Caroline think she can fix anyone else's family (the Gorgadices) since her own family is 'broken' right now. Caroline says, "bottom line is, I can recognize when something's wrong, as I recognize when something's wrong in my own family. It doesn't mean I haven't tried, it doesn't mean that we haven't been talking or trying to work things out. It's living, breathing and dealing with it, so you can recognize it in somebody else's family and try to help. That's it."
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.
