A Family That Scares Together
I am so excited that this show is back and even more so that it is an hour block. I wonder if it will be airing with Don’t Be Tardy when it hits its regular time slot? I hope so! I hope that Caroline’s lump is nothing. I’d be really sad if it was anything serious.
It seems that the Manzo family is going to jail. Don’t worry, it’s just a haunted prison. Wait. Maybe we should worry, because it’s a haunted prison! Caroline now has a soap making business. The editing is really weird. While we are in the car on the way to prison, where they are giving each other prison names, they are interspersing catch up stories here and there. Clearly no one on the editing team has ever recapped at TV show in their stupid little lives. Chris enjoyed writing his children’s book so now he wants to tackle an even tougher market, middle grades kiddie lit. Good luck with that Chris, no really I mean it. I wish I had time to write something other than TV shows. But hey, it pays the bills, mostly. So I shall live vicariously through you. His writing mentors tell him he needs to have more life experience to write captivating descriptions. Actually, I’d say he needs to go on a writers retreat to write more captivating descriptions. Or maybe that’s just something on my bucket list and I’m projecting again.
Finally, we get to ghost prison. Holy crap. Are they really going to spend the night in there? I give them two hours tops. Over 1,220 prisons died over the 140 years this prison was open. Al Capone was at that prison. He had lots of extra’s like furniture and a rug. This opened the door for a question to Caroline in her confessional about whether or not celebrities getting celebrity treatment in jail. She says she doesn’t know any celebrities that have been in jail. No real celebrities. Oh how I have missed Caroline!
It’s time for bed so Vito is making salt boundary to keep the ghosts out of his cell. Caroline’s ghost weapon of choice is peppermint spray. Chris and Manzo are not afraid, so they set off to hunt for the ghosts.
Lauren takes the opportunity to chastise Vito for not spending enough time with her. Until the boys call and say they see a human like figure. Then of course everyone goes down to check it out. They all freak out and get the hell out of there. How long was that? DId my two hours win the pool?
Chris’s children’s book is published and arrives at their house. Caroline is so proud she cries. Awwwww.
A Class in Creativity
Lauren has a new Blowout Bar she is opening. This is her second business. Not bad for one of Caroline’s kids because as y’all keep telling me they all live at home and don’t work. Caroline has gone nuts with her soap making. She sells it online I think. I saw it the other day. She also sells it in Lauren’s stores. Vito is getting ready to open a deli and Albie who has his own restaurant is helping to mentor him. Chris is going to make a commercial for Lauren’s new blow out bar. Albie is going to help. I love how funny this family is and how they all work together and help each other out.
We get a ridiculous etiquette lesson from some lady from an etiquette school. She accuses Vito of being in the mafia. Caroline is not amused. This is supposed to be hilarious but it is really more nonsensical. You don’t need to go to finishing school to open an Italian deli in Jersey. In fact, it’s kind of the opposite of what you need to know to open an Italian deli in Jersey.
It’s time for the big opening! And Lauren has not seen the commercial. Lauren loves the commercial because their cute little cousin Olivia is in it. We end another episode with Caroline in tears over the success of her children.
