Still testing viewers’ Real Housewives viewing limits, Bravo has given the go ahead to a The Real Housewives of New Jersey spinoff, starring Caroline Manzo, called Manzo’d with Children. The reality soap also would feature husband Albert, children Lauren, Albie, and Chris, as well as Manzo’s sister — as well as her sister, aka Aunt Fran, who made an appearance on the mothership show with her pet pig.
Lauren's bridal shower is organized by Caroline. Albie asks along on-again girlfriend Brittany, but his Aunt Jacqueline is not happy threatening to drive Brittany away.
Caroline is fed up with her grown children's juvenile behavior. She offers some tough love to Lauren, but the lesson backfires after her bridezilla behavior takes a turn for the worse.
