Sons of 'Housewives' star get a web spin-off

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" has given birth to a new show.

"Boys to Manzo" will follow the lives of Chris and Albie Manzo on BravoTV.com. The pair are sons of "RHONJ" cast member Caroline Manzo and have appeared on the show.

According to the New York Post, "The seven-episode series was shot in Hoboken and will focus on the guys' life in their fancy waterfront bachelor pad (complete with terrace overlooking the Hudson)."

Thus far, viewers of the show have seen the brothers move out of their parents' New Jersey mansion. They embarked to live on their own after Albie wasn't asked back to law school and Chris announced he was leaving the family business, a banquet facility called The Brownstone in Paterson, New Jersey.

    I didn't know that you had to be ASKED back to law school. I thought if you got decent grades you're good to go for next semester.
    Looks like someone FAILED!!!

    I dont watch TV at all .I dont have the $ for a converter box & when I do have $40 extra, I have 40 necessities that need to be adressed. Isn't it quaint that these boys can quit school & jobs & live it up in a condo on the Hudson, paid for by their "Reality" show! Does this make them stars? Hardly! It just makes them fortunate& I hope they have enough brainpower to appreciate that! And it looks like I'm not missing much on TV. I'll go back to my book, "Baudolino" by Umberto Eco. It's very entertaining & inspiring!

      If you like Eco you should read "Foucault's Pendulum". Sure, these guys are fortunate. They are also the "stars" of their shows. I don't quite get all the haters. I also don't get the line drawn between "intellectuals" and people who watch reality TV. You're going to tell me that some goof like Suzanne Sommers is a "real" star while these guys aren't? What's the difference? I watch most of the Housewives shows and yet my favorite book when I was a kid was "The Name of the Rose"...another UE novel. If you don't like them...don't watch.

    I often wonder why the media portrays people who participate in cheesey reality shows as "stars". Just because they are obnoxious and annoying and people feel better about themselves watching how screwed up someone on TV is, that makes them a star??? If people just stopped watching, they would eventually go away. I don't watch any of these stupid shows, can't even tolerate the promos for them. It's embarrassing the public wastes time on them. I don't evenknow why I commented here...I really don't care about any of those people.

    @Ingie..you are so right about them not even being cute. Maybe the show is going to be about them cutting away from their mommy's apron strings. Sorry if I come off as a b***h but that's my mood today.
