The Manzo family is thick as thieves and poised to become reality TV stars when the Real Housewives of New Jersey airs tonight. They're also the first family-based set, plus one outsider for good measure, to star in the Bravo housewives franchise.
The group, whose members know each better than the previous casts, has a tough, Sopranoesque feel to it. In fact, some appear to have actual mob ties.
Based on the previews, the women will offer a different variety of topics for viewers' enjoyment. If you tune in, you'll witness intricate family drama, a 45-year-old woman chasing youth and love (OK, that's not new), and you'll hear a lot about "bubbies," aka breasts.
The show premieres tonight at 11 p.m. EST. Will you tune in?
