This week on Manzo’d With Children, we learned that Caroline Manzo’s son, Chris, decided that he wanted to write a children’s book. As shocking as that may seem, it is true, but what made him decide to ditch all of his other business plans for something so different? Luckily, Chris Manzo opened up about his decision recently, and admitted that he is just not a “suit and tie business man.”
In fact, according to Manzo, he hired someone to take care of all the technical business stuff for him, while he just focused on what he wanted to do – write the book. As for his mom and the rest of the Manzo family, they are nothing short of extremely proud of Chris.

You may or may not be shocked that Chris Manzo decided to step away from his other business ventures and sit down and write a children’s book, but what exactly inspired him to do so? “It was always something I said I wanted to try, but I pictured myself doing it later in life. I sort of found myself in a position to take a risk, so I said why not and gave it a shot,” Chris recently told Bravo.
Despite that you’d think Chris would end up in a suit and tie, that just isn’t him, even though it may have taken him a bit longer to accept that. “I get to do what I really love and not worry about the headaches. If it ultimately became a career, I would truly feel like the luckiest person in the world. I’ve learned over the years that I’m not really the suit and tie business man that I always pictured myself being,” Manzo admitted.
Chris seems to truly enjoy writing, as he even noted that no matter what anyone in his family thinks of his work, if he feels it, he is going with it – even if that means getting into a little mischief. “I have been kicked out of a few places, the children’s section in a library was a first. But true story: It happened again in the Hoboken library. I have since learned my lesson,” Chris chuckled.
