Caroline Manzo is the epitome of a strong New Jersey woman. Always putting family first, she is a devoted wife and mother of three children, Albie, 28; Lauren, 26; and Christopher, 25. Caroline has been married for more than 30 years to her husband Albert who runs The Brownstone, a very successful catering facility in Paterson, NJ. The business has been with the family for over 30 years and is one of the premiere event spaces in the state. Although Caroline spends the majority of her time managing the household, her family has been known to run her ragged as she supports BLK Water, Brownstone Sauce, and Cafface Beauty Bar. Caroline is affiliated with several charities including SCTNOW, a foundation dedicated to stopping child trafficking within our own borders, CROC, a foundation dedicated to helping cancer survivors, Best Friends Animal Society, Wounded Warriors Project and The PG Chambers School, a NJ facility dedicated to educating children with physical and mental disabilities. Often described as a feisty spitfire, Caroline manages to have it all -- family, friends, and a career. In her opinion, that is what makes her a "Real Housewife" of New Jersey.
