Last night, Andy Cohen’s Bravo episode of “Watch What Happens: Live,” welcomed Caroline Manzo and her three kids, Lauren, Christopher and Albie.
Andy announced the word of the day for drinking was “pig” and showed a clip of Aunt Franny and the potbellied pig she was babysitting for and gave her a chance to be the bartender for the show. Franny looks very much like Dina and is a year different in age.
Andy announced that at the gym on the episode of “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Joe Gorga and his sister, Teresa Giudice dropped lots of bombs on each other about cheating and obsession with each other. The poll of the show was to ask whose side viewers are on; Joe or Teresa? Caroline would not give her choice.
Andy also featured the Manzos on the first episode of RHONJ, and gave viewers a flashback to when Caroline had a short haircut, and Lauren looks pretty much the same as she did back then. She has had lap-band surgery and was on a diet back then. The brothers were so much younger then and have certainly changed the most.
Andy could not resist showing the clip of Rosie going berserk at the birthday party for Victoria and Richie. Too bad the gang had nothing else to talk about but Teresa. To add drama to the piece, they superimposed an operatic aria, but Rosie’s expletives and hand gestures were undeniable.
A caller questioned Caroline’s friendship with Dina, but Caroline said nothing is changed and to stop asking.
In response to caller’s other questions, the boys are not dating because they are too busy with their new restaurant and Lauren is not unhappy, but is insecure while the cameras are rolling.
Caroline stated that the biggest misconception about her family is that she has her children on a tight leash.
The Ham Game showed a cartoon of Franny’s pig tied to a spit. As Andy asked the kids questions about their mother, for each wrong answer; the flames grew under the pig. First question was her pet peeve; Lauren knew it was lateness. Next, how would Caroline describe Teresa in one word? Enigma was the answer, but they answered it wrong, flame started. If Caroline had to choose among, Danielle Staub, Kim D or Kim G, who would she choose to be stranded on an island for one month? Kim D was the answer which was correct. Caroline’s celebrity crush was correctly answered as Simon Cowell. Caroline’s spirit animal was incorrect, as they guessed bulldog or an animal with the biggest balls. What was Teresa’s biggest problem? Pride was correct. When Caroline tells a lie, she laughs was correct and the pig was saved.
The poll gave the edge to Joe with 71% on his side and only 29% on her side. Go figure! Teresa texted Andy and told him that it was a very unfair poll. She loves her brother unconditionally, and nobody should be choosing sides. Andy announced that the show would feature Cher on Thursday on “Watch What Happens: Live.”
