Remember all those hours Al and Caroline Manzo claimed he worked at the Brownstone? Why not mention on the Real Housewives of New Jersey that he was a commissioner on the Water Board? Oh right, the bogus(?) address. Does Big Al really sleep on a cot at the Brownstone? Governor Christie doesn’t think so.
TRENTON, N.J. — Gov. Chris Christie is picking a fight with the husband of one of the stars of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reality show.
Christie this week suspended Albert Manzo, the husband of Caroline Manzo, from the North Jersey District Water Supply Commission, saying he and another commissioner abused the public’s trust.
The governor criticized Manzo for not revealing that he lived in Franklin Lakes instead of Paterson. Manzo’s posh Franklin Lakes home is often shown on the reality series.
He also owns The Brownstone restaurant in urban Paterson, which hosts weddings and special events, and lists that as his official address – something Christie on Thursday called absurd.
“Do you really believe he’s sleeping on a cot at the Brownstone in Paterson?” Christie asked.
Manzo told The Record newspaper he has an apartment in his Paterson restaurant and plans to fight to keep his job.
