Albert Manzo Resigns Under Pressure from N.J. Governor

"I support my husband 1,000 percent," wife Caroline says.


Although still adamant that he did nothing wrong, Albert Manzo handed in his official resignation as Commissioner at the North Jersey District Water Supply on Wednesday. "This is not personal between me and the governor and there is no animosity," Albert tells RadarOnline.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey fixture came under scrutiny after Jersey Governor Chris Christie accused him of deceiving the public by fibbing about his address. For more than a decade, Albert has listed his official residence as an apartment at his Brownstone restaurant, which is located in one of the 12 municipalities that the commission serves – a requirement for his position. His sprawling home in Franklin Lakes, however, isn't. 

"I now appreciate the fact that the recent publicity surrounding my position has and will become a distraction to the Commission and will require the Commission to incur unnecessary legal expenses," the dad of three reportedly writes in his resignation letter. After looking at the bigger picture, Albert decided to follow the high road and step down about five weeks before his term ends. "The board was going to hire a lawyer to defend itself and I didn't want that," he continues. "I feel like it's turned into a circus and I love the commission too much to put them through that."

Meanwhile, the Manzo clan remains thick as thieves and Albert's still rocking his Jersey pride. Caroline tells RadarOnline, "I support my husband 1,000 percent and there are no improprieties here. He's proud of what he did on the board. He's doing it because he loves his state and community and doesn't want to bring any negativity."
