Real Housewives of New Jersey Caroline Manzo paints herself as the wise and caring family matriarch, but Caroline’s three children—Lauren, Christopher and Albert—are secretly seething at their mother for turning into a fame-hungry monster who puts ratings over her children!
A spy caught Lauren ranting about her mom to a pal at her Franklin Lakes, N.J., beauty bar, Cafface, just weeks before her wedding.
“I heard Lauren and her employees all talking about how awful Caroline has become,” reports the witness, adding that Lauren was near tears describing how her mother was essentially forcing her to film her wedding for their reality show, Manzo’d With Children.
“Caroline told her, ‘I don’t care if this ruins your wedding. The cameras are coming. It doesn’t matter what you want.’ Lauren looked really upset,” reports the insider.
Back in 2013 when Lauren got engaged, she seemed to appreciate the privacy of not sharing the news with the world right away (needless to say, the moment wasn’t caught on camera). But momma Caroline was so excited that she wanted to share the news right away. “Let’s Instagram it, let’s tweet it!” Lauren reported about her mom’s reaction. But Lauren was more focused on taking in the news herself and enjoying the moment before letting everyone else know.
