It’s time for another episode of Manzo’d With Children! Lauren, who is getting married any day, and is likely to want to breed does not know what a syllable is. I’m just going to hope she is playing stupid for the cameras because she thinks it is cute. Otherwise, I’d have to write a whole long “KIDS TODAY!” rant. And ain’t nobody got time for that!
Caroline is pissed that she cleans the kitchen every night only to awaken to a mess. They have a staged argument about Caroline doing everything for the kids. Caroline would throw a fit if these kids didn’t still act like they need her to clean up behind them. Albert takes Caroline away for a tennis date. Caroline plays just about as well as I do. Which leaves her plenty of breath to continue bitching about the kids.
Albie goes to meet Brittany at a diner. I do not believe this relationship exists. I think this chick just wants to be on the show. They actually acknowledge that they haven’t talked since last season was filmed.
Caroline and Albert go out for a nice dinner. I would not say it was a particularly romantic date. It seems like there are a lot of really good Italian restaurants in New Jersey. Sadly, we don’t have many of those in Atlanta. Caroline is worried that Lauren doesn’t know how to budget. Well, Caroline, it’s high time she figured that out. Albert says he is only going to spoil Lauren at Christmas. I don’t believe him. Lauren is his only daughter.
Caroline sells her homemade soaps at Cafface. I think that is cute. I would buy one if I were close just because Caroline made them. Actually, I could probably own my own soap and body wash store. When a woman reaches a certain age, she tends to be gifted a lot of scented body products. Or maybe people are just trying to give me a hint.
Albie tells Caroline and Lauren that he and Brittany are going to give things another go. Caroline wants us to know that she has cut the apron strings with her kids. Now she is their advisor. About every little thing. At Cafface, as Caroline is setting up Lauren’s displays, she advises her about learning to live without her father’s credit card. Jacqueline shows up and delivers her line, “Does she still have her daddy’s credit card?” like a pro. Caroline runs out of breath explaining to Lauren that she needs to be prepared for the changes that are going to happen in her life.
Lauren has never had to pay for gas. She says she doesn’t feel that is something she should have to pay for. I actually understand that sentiment. Unfortunately, life often works out where you have to pay for your own gas and take your care in for an oil change yourself. It’s a sad fact of life for some of us.
Lauren is pissed that her mother doesn’t think she is prepared to be married. She ends up throwing Caroline and Jacqueline out of the store.
Next week: It’s Lauren’s bridal shower. And Chris has a box that looks like there is a person inside as her gift. IT BETTER BE GREGGY BENNETT! How the hell is he missing all of this?
