Last week on Manzo’d With Children, we left with Albie Manzo and Lauren Manzo fighting on the deck about her disapproval of Albie’s new girlfriend, Brittany. Albie stormed off and went crying to Caroline about how people need to just stay out of his business. Lauren (having no friends) calls her fiancé, Vito Scalia crying about how mean Ablie was to her. Caroline Manzo doesn’t want Albie and Lauren to fight and certainly doesn’t want either of them to not speak to each other ever again. So mama Manzo tells Albie to get over himself and tells Lauren she should have not called Albie a d%*k and a douche and to make peace otherwise they are all kicked out of the house (yeah right, Caroline).
This big blowout causes Albie to make a 911 call to Amber, his life coach, for a home visit STAT! Amber uses her jump to conclusion mat to discover that perhaps Caroline and Lauren are too involved in Albie’s life and their motivations are more about themselves than Albie’s well-being. Bingo. Well, hopefully Albie will be able to resolve this issue with Lauren in a civilized way.
Nothing like the scent of fresh-washed laundry! What’s better than to have your mom do your laundry for you – at the age of 28, no less? This week’s episode of Manzo’d with Children starts with Caroline Manzotending to her cubs’ (aka Albie and Chris) clothes-folding duties and chatting it up with her hubby Al Manzo. Al thinks the boys will be staying with them for 6 months – MAX! The fact that Caroline is even folding their laundry is code for her never wanting them to leave, IMO. Suddenly, a black tank top, ahem, a black female tank top, is found amongst the basketball mesh shorts and boxers. Caroline wants to barf at the sight of it, but is going to wait for the owner to claim it before she raises hell trying to figure out where it came from. Hint: Albie has a girlfriend. But man, wouldn’t it be kinda fun to meet Chris’ girlfriends once in awhile?
Welcome Back Manzos!!! It’s a full house this time around on Manzo’d With Children as Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo have moved back home to save money to start their own business (another business? what about the bar? what about BLK water?). I’m curious how much money they actually save by living at home. You take away rent and utilities and groceries that definitely helps. However, I imagine they are still going out to bars, restaurants and shopping – which is where most of my income went at that age anyway. The key to saving money is actually making money (I’m assuming the Bravo salaries are plentiful) and so far every scene has been the boys lounging around at home like it’s summer vacation. Maybe the cameras are just capturing the weekends – but do these guys have any job right now??? Even if they are earning money from BLK or the restaurant on the side – that still requires doing some work. This Manzo business idealism throws me for a loop. Wanting your children to be their own boss in their early 20s might not be the best idea, Caroline Manzo. There is something to be said for busting your butt for a company, learning all the ropes and then maybe after 5-10 years you can be confident enough to do it independently. I have a feeling moving home had more to do with the show than saving for their “business ventures”. Sorry, I had to rant on this topic, it irks me to no end.
Our favorite reality stars were on the prowl this week.
Ramona Singer let loose on the red carpet at the opening night after party for the musical 'Bullets Over Broadway'. Snooki &Jwoww attended the MTV Movie Awards. Kendall and Kylie Jenner hit up Coachella while sister Kourtney Kardashian made an appearance in Las Vegas (looking like she's attempting to hide a baby bump..). Lauren Manzo celebrated her birthday. Yolanda Foster stepped out with husband David – looking better than ever! Andy Cohen attended an ASPCA event with his dog while Carole Radizwill and LuAnn de Lesseps hung out at a cocktail party.
I never thought I'd be so happy to write a post about past (or present) cast members of The Real Housewives of New Jersey! After weeks of non-stop crazy drama and endless posts about Atlanta and Beverly Hills, I'm thrilled to see these ladies! Yes, you read that right, THRILLED.
Caroline Manzo and her family and Jacqueline Laurita and her family (including kiddos C.J. and Nicholas) stepped out last night to attend "Ringling Bros." And "Barnum & Bailey" Presents "Legends" at Barclays Center in NYC.
Mere months after finalizing her divorce from Kris Humphries, the reality stargot engaged to Kanye West in a lavish, over-the-top proposal. Tell me: why does Kim always look so glum for the lady who has everything?

The two recently got engaged and Lauren is suddenly ready to be a Mrs. That wouldn't have anything to do with the Manzo fam finally being offered that spinoff they've been campaigning for, would it? Not. At. All.
With Manzo'd With Children filming now, planning a wedding and all the drama that comes with it is the perfect segue to attract viewers. But Lauren insists her reason for saying Yes to Vito's proposal (the two have been rumored to be secretly engaged for years, BTW), was that she finally embraced the idea of change. Ok, then.
Whatever the case we're happy for the Manzo'd With Children stars! And you know what this means… a TV WEDDING! <swoon> True Fact: I love a wedding. Even a made for TV one.
Except the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star is now playing coy about whether or not her wedding will actually be televised. Girl, yeah right! On the idea of getting married on TV Laurentells Radar Online, “There’s always that possibility, and I won’t say it’s out of the question."
