Yay! It’s time for Manzo’d With Children which I am really hoping will be fun and cute like Don’t Be Tardy! All the kids have move back in for the show, I mean for various reasons. Greggy Bennett calls to say he is home to visit family and wants to see them. Greggy is Lauren’s bridesman. He is going to go wedding dress shopping with Lauren and Glamor Magazine. Lauren looks great by the way.
Jac is wearing the same shirt in this scene with Lauren that she wore in her talking heads on RHONJ tonight. Lauren has a sweating problem and wants to do underarm botox to deal with it. Caroline is worried that Lauren is getting bit too into cosmetic issues she’s had the lap band surgery and a breast reduction, and now she wants botox? I think Lauren is just fine and Caroline worries too much.
Greggy!!!! Jesus he has put on 20 pounds of muscle since we last saw him. Vito wants to get married in white and Lauren is not having it.
Caroline and Jac go with Lauren to get botox. There will about twenty injections per pit. I can’t believe we are watching this. I think this is a Bravo first.
Lauren goes to try on wedding dresses. She brings Caroline, Jacqueline, Greggy and some other people from the wedding party. Caroline cries at the first dress. Lauren looks gorgeous. That was a cute episode. And now there is another one!
I think Fran, Caroline’s sister is living in the house too. How many bedrooms does this house have? Caroline wants to get healthy and lose some weight. The boys are bringing a bunch of junk food into the house. Caroline, Fran and Lauren throw out all the junk food. Until the boys and Al show up to stop them. Albert is adamant he can’t be without his cheese. Albie says Caroline needs a trainer. Now Caroline wants a breast reduction. Caroline gets on the scale and Al gets behind here and holds up her boobs. Suddenly the scale drops 11 and a half pounds. The boys are scared for life. It was kind of funny. Albert leaves for work taking all of the junk food with him for safekeeping.
Caroline goes to work out. Albie takes her to meet a trainer he has picked out for her. I hate this workout. There has to be a better option for a 53-year-old woman. There is no way in hell she can climb that rope. She says it is because she is afraid of heights. I say there is no way she has the upper body strength. The kids talk about how to push Caroline to overcome her fear of heights.
Sigh, I hate that Jac is going to be on every episode. I love that Caroline knows she is making sauce and not gravy.
The kids decide to take Caroline to trapeze class. Caroline is terrified she will die in gym clothes. The trapeze guy talks super fast. Caroline has to sign a death waiver. She is not pleased. Caroline is having a nervous breakdown on the trapeze. She cried the entire time and was terrified. She totally pissed at all the kids. Al is on the phone and she can’t even talk to him she is so hysterical.
Next time: Albie brings home a airheaded girlfriend. The girlfriend causes issues between Albie and Lauren and Albie and Caroline.
UPDATE! Ratings were great! But how much of that is do to the unscrupulous DVR set up attaching it to RHONJ? We’ll find out next week I guess.
