It has been confirmed that Lauren Manzo had lapband surgery in September 2011. The interesting about this
confession announcement is that fact that she has lost only 30 lbs! Don’t do a Carnie Wilson on us, Lauren!
Interesting episode last night on the Real Housewives of New Jersey
The Manzos certainly are a family in search of a storyline and Lauren is the victim of the family need.
First of all, Lauren is a lovely girl..look at that face! Ever notice that they seldom show the lower half of her body? Where am I going with this?
Remember two seasons ago when Al Manzo had lapband surgery and lost about one hundred pounds ?
Shorty thereafter, they had the season 2 reunion,and Caroline showed up much thinner than she was during season one. Andy Cohen commented on her weight loss, and she answered “portion control”. I called bs on it then, and I still call it bs. Suspecting Caroline had the surgery, she had that same enlarged head look that others have after this procedure..
Suddenly, in season three, Lauren’s weight was an issue. So, Caroline throws her under the bus, constantly comparing her to her brothers, the heir and the spare, no matter how Lauren feels about it, really eviscerating the girl at the season three reunion.
But what is the backstory? Could this be Caroline’s method for inducing Bravo TV to pay for Lauren’s weight loss surgery? Has she had the surgery, with the results yo be revealed later in the season?
If so, then the Dr. Perricone weight loss clinic visit was scripted, just as it seemed. Is r. Perricone a skin care specialist? And what a disservice to people gullible enough to believe these storylines?
I suppose Dr.Perricone will make bank.
In the meantime, Lauren worked her makeup magic for one day……then quit? After that segment, she caught mucho flak on twitter. To make matters worse, Jacqueline Laurita tweets that Lauren now OWNS the Chateau……huh? I can’t find any evidence of that…if you do, let me know.
5/9 Heard from Greg Bennett, he says Lauren rents the space Chateau was in, renamed it Cafface. Thanks for clearing that up, Greg.
Interesting the Manzo Family is as dysfunctional as the Giudices and Gorgas.
That’s show biz….
