Is Albie still dating Lindsey? And, anyone who's seen them on RHONJ knows they're not afraid to embarrass themselves a bit and have a good laugh at their own expense, so please, enjoy.

Chris Manzo

The Dish: Single or taken?
Chris: Single

Describe your love life in just three words.
Not. right. now.

What’s the longest relationship you’ve had?
8 months

Who’s your celebrity crush?
Anne Hathaway for 2 more years, then Demi Lovato.

You have a great sense of humor. Do you prefer a girl who can keep up with you or one who lets you have the jokester spotlight?
I like someone who is a bit sarcastic, but not someone as obnoxious as me, an intelligent sense of humor.

When is it OK to lie to a girl?
In the beginning of talking, every guy does that. "Wow, here I am thinking I'm the only one who is so broken up over the endangerment of the North Carolina Flying Squirrel." Sharing common interests is important, even if it’s slightly fabricated.

How long do you wait before promoting a girl friend to girlfriend?
A few weeks/months, depends on how things go out of the gate. Every case is different.

If Lauren doesn’t like your girl – or she can’t cook! -- are those automatic deal breakers?
I can cook, and enjoy cooking, so that’s no big deal. If Lauren doesn't like her, not happenin’.



Albie Manzo

Single or taken?
These days my dating life has taken a backseat to blk. We are all working really hard and are focused on building a great business. I know that a lot of people don’t understand that, but it’s what I feel is best for me right now. So there.

Describe your love life in just three words.
Bg ol’ mess.

What’s the longest relationship you’ve had?
Four years. She’s actually getting engaged, so weird! We have a great friendship and I couldn’t be more happy for her. Her fiancé is getting a great girl and I’m sure they’ll be really happy. I wish them all the best.

Who’s your celebrity crush?
Pia Toscano

What should a girl do (and not do!) to win over your family?
Winning over my family is definitely not as difficult as it may seem. If I’m happy, that’s all they really care about. The worst thing someone can do is over-think that stuff. Although I listen to what everyone has to say, I don’t let anyone’s opinion affect how I feel about someone.

What’s the dumbest thing you’ve done on a date?
Film it.

What three things make a girl wifey material?
Loyalty, sense of humor, random text messages. (Weird, I know, but for whatever reason that’s big with me.)

You spot a cute girl at a bar or restaurant. What’s your go-to move?
I’m not really a “move” guy. I like to just go over and say hello. If a girl is into you, things will go from there. If not, they usually have no problem making you feel like a complete idiot.
