Despite the fact that Season 4 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is currently airing on Bravo, the fact of the matter is these people have not worked in a year. Except for, love her or hate her, Teresa Giudice.
They filmed seasons 3 and 4 back to back, hoping to cash in on Joe Giudice’s bankruptcy fraud trial, which was to take place in July 2011. Filming went straight through from October, 2010 (the christening episode) to the Season 3 reunion, to the end of season 4 filming, in late October, 2011.
Except for whatever day jobs they have, where’s the income? Lauren Manzo’s Cafface? Has Kathy Wakile sold a cookie lately? Melissa Gorga’s auto-tunes? Caroline Manzo has a book deal with a small offshoot publishing house, the book to come out in March, 2013.
As for the Manzo boys, Greggy Bennett has a degree from Fordham, claims to have a job, won’t say what he does. Albie and Chris went from productive young men in season 1, to pushing that ill-fated BLKwater.
When Jacqueline Laurita told People Magazine this week that her youngest child Nicholas has autism, I was sympathetic to her plight, though I wondered how she could sometimes spend 24/7 on twitter with her drunken meltdowns.
One case in particular, he told Patch, has really assured him of the product’s potential: A mother gave her autistic son blk. to drink, thinking its unique color might get him drinking more water. The boy not only drank it, he loved it, but the amazing part, he started behaving. The mother reached out to Albie, shocked, who sent her two more cases to try. Her son is stimming less and listening and following directions more. The difference, she told Manzo, is unbelievable.
I know these people are desperate, but will they tout Blkwater as the cure for autism? Let’s hope they won’t stoop that low. After all, some less-than-savvy people will believe them.
That is all.
