Caroline Manzo shared her parenting advice and strategies on previous seasons of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and she was very accepting of her children’s friends. For one, Chris Manzo was friends with a guy who he had known for years. But the friend’s mother often tried to get involved with Caroline’s issues, especially in regards to Teresa Giudice.
But Caroline Manzo’s sons actually had a friend who always had Caroline’s back. Greg Bennett often offered some comic relief to the show, even when Manzo started feuding with Teresa Giudice about their friendships. While filming the show, Greg decided to move to San Francisco, and the Manzo family had a party for him as he was packing up and moving.
According to a new Real Mr. Housewife post, Caroline Manzo was indirectly mentioned in a joke where Bennett called Chris Manzo’s parents “f**king weirdos.” But the joke wasn’t directed at Caroline and her husband Albert per se.
“If the Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage in June, does everyone promise to remove Equality as their middle name on Facebook,” Bennett tweeted over the weekend.
Bennett was tweeting the thought without a direct link to the Manzo family. But because Greg and Chris are such good friends, Manzo decided to test what he was referring to. He decided to throw out a scenario, one where Caroline Manzo would naturally be involved given she is Chris’ parent in this case.
“What if my parents just named me Christopher Equality Manzo,” Chris asked him, with Greg replying, “then your parents are f**kin weirdos.”
It sounds like the children are still keeping in touch with Greg even though he has moved to California. Caroline’s daughter, Lauren Manzo, has said that she will miss fighting with Bennett while filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey. He has gone back to visit the Manzo family in New Jersey since moving, and Caroline had her arms open to welcome him back to New Jersey.
Caroline Manzo should not take Gregg’s comment personally, as it was meant as a joke. Chances are she agrees with him in regards to the comment about the parents being out there if they used the name “equality” as a middle name. But she is busy focusing on supporting her sons, Chris and Albie.
According to the Inquisitr, they recently decided to close their restaurant to open a second one instead. Later this year, the boys are hoping to have two full restaurants open.
What do you think of the comment that indirectly slammed Caroline Manzo?
