Shaking Things Up

It's a Housewife first! Caroline explains why the Jersey girls are shaking things up at Bravo.

By Caroline Manzo

Hmmm, I have to admit, when I saw myself on the show, even I was afraid of me! The truth of the matter is, I am the marshmallow that I am shaped like. (I think my camera was broken, it was stuck on wide angle constantly...LOL.) As far as the kids go, NO, I do not put Lauren's shoes on for her, NO, I am not the witch of Albie's girlfriends present, and as far as Christopher and his career choices, you will just have to watch and see - he may surprise you! I will admit that I am one of those moms who does a lot for her children, but I can't help it. I have so little time left before they leave home and are out on their own. Letting them go is proving to be one of my biggest challenges in life, and bittersweet for sure.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/9c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Teresa, oh Teresa, what can I say? Love, Love, Love...Mwah, Mwah, Mwah! The one thing you can always count on when Theresa is around is laughter. She is absolutely hilarious! Her girls are absolutely adorable and as girly girl as you can possibly get. Theresa is crazy in love with her husband and is very dedicated to her girls. I am so happy to see Teresa and Joe finally move into their dream home.

As far as Dina and Lexi go, watching them together is like watching any typical mother/daughter relationship in any city, in any state in this country. Lexi is 13 going on 40. Her sense of humor is very dry, and not many people get it, but such is life. I think it would be great if Jill asked Dina to be her doubles partner in the next Ramona/Mario match. That would be the match of the century! LOL!


Jacqueline has made a very nice life for herself with her own group of friends that she enjoys. She has her challenges with Ashley, but welcome to the world of teenage girls! My little CJ is as cute as cute gets and he looks just like his Daddy (although he has Jacqueline's brown eyes and hair.) It cracks me up to see a miniature version of my brother walking around. I am also sooooo excited for the new baby to arrive. This is a Bravo housewife first! Leave it to a Jersey Girl to shake things up!

Well, that's it for now. Be good and have a great week!
