Bravotv.com: Albie, has Lauren always been hard on your girlfriends?
Albie Manzo: Lauren's always been hard on girls we bring home, so this was really nothing new.
Lauren Manzo: I'm actually always very nice to Al's girlfriends. I usually become very close with them, and Al doesn't like that either. So I can't really win either way. I am still very close with two of his exes and even when they were together he didn't like it.
Bravotv.com: Was Lauren hard on Brittany?
AM: Believe it or not, I've actually seen girls get it way worse than Brit did. It always starts off rough, but eventually they come around.
Bravotv.com: Albie, how would you describe your dream girl?
AM: I'm definitely not easy to date, so my dream girl is anyone that can put up with me!
LM: I don't think he knows what he wants in his dream girlfriend.
Bravotv.com: Lauren, describe your ideal girlfriend for Albie.
LM: I don't really care that much. As long as they're around for the right reasons. I don't think Brittany is a bad person.
AM: I've always felt that Mom and Lauren cared more about how a girl I'm dating fits in with them more than how she fits in with me. That's always been something that's frustrated me greatly, because I don't like the idea of them not getting along with whomever I'm seeing. I'm happiest around my family, especially my little cousins, and I don't ever want to feel uncomfortable bringing someone around them.
Bravotv.com: Are your fights with one another usually this brutal?
AM: That's definitely the biggest fight we've had. We can definitely be a little argumentative at times, but it's never gotten to that level. I think what people are seeing here is a fight that touched a real nerve for me. This is a subject that's come up in my personal life for as long as I can remember, so maybe it was just a matter of time until I lost my cool over it. Not my best moment, for sure.
LM: This was definitely the worst fight we have ever had. Usually we are mean to each other, and he goes and complains, and I get yelled at.
