We may have watched Lauren Manzo Scalia finally tie the knot during Sunday night's season finale of Manzo'd with Children, but being a newlywed hasn't made her soft. Lauren had some things to say about The Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In three-part special during her appearance with her family members Caroline, Albie, and Chris Manzo on Watch What Happens Live Sunday night (Nov. 1). "I feel bad for the kids, and I do truly love Joe. I think [Teresa Giudice] knows what she was doing from the inside," Lauren said.
Lauren elaborated on that point, saying she believed Teresa was very smart about appealing to the audience's emotions with what she chose to say and when she chose to say it. "I think she knew, you know, what to do to make everybody cry when, whatever," Lauren explained.
Ultimately, however, the show still seemed to tug at Lauren's heartstrings. "But it is sad. The girls are sad. I cried a couple times when I was watching it. I cried with Joe," she said.
Like daughter, like mother. Caroline also had some thoughts on Vicki Gunvalson's bombshell regarding the Brooks Ayers cancer controversy from the final part of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 reunion. See what she had to say on WWHL, below.
