Turns out, Teresa and Joe Giudice aren’t the only Bravolebs facing financial issues.
Albert Manzo, owner of The Brownstone catering hall and husband to Caroline Manzo, owes $208,012.77 in New Jersey state taxes from 2015. That’s a lot of meat-a-balls! And if that weren’t bad enough, Radar is reporting the catering hall, where so much Real Housewives of New Jersey drama has gone done, is falling apart.
This isn’t the first time Manzo has had money troubles in regards to The Brownstone banquet hall. In 2004, it took a full year to pay off the $105,983 tax bill from the state of New Jersey, but June 2016 was the worst month ever for the Manzo’d with Children star. The Brownstone was hit with a civil judgment owed to and accounting firm for $13,075, and within days, an elevator company filed a complaint for over $6,000.
Financial woes aren’t their only problems! In 2013, a waitress filed a discrimination lawsuit against Albert and his bother Tommy for unfair pay and bigotry and said there were referred to as “spic bitches.” Manzo has denied these claims. “I’ve never spoken to any employee in that manner. This is the most insane thing I’ve ever dealt with.” Manzo said to the Daily News in 2013.
I am so lucky to combine blogging with my guilty pleasure of watching reality TV. I read all the comments and respond to most. Feel free to reach out to me. If you like fiction, I have two published novels: Three Days in Purgatory and A Reason to Run.
