Another day, another "Real Housewives" spin-off.
Currently titled "Manzo'd With Children," the project will follow Manzo and her Italian family that includes her husband Albert, daughter Lauren, and sons Albie and Chris, who have all been a fixture on "Real Housewives" since its premiere. Manzo's sister, Fran, who recently made an appearance along with her pet pig, will also be on the series.
Although many "Real Housewives" in the Bravo franchise, including Kim Zolciak, Bethenny Frankel and Lisa Vanderpump, have gotten spin-off projects, Manzo is the first "New Jersey" cast member to earn one. Manzo is often portrayed on the series as the voice of reason as her castmates create unnecessary drama.
