This week on Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 4, Albie and Lauren had a falling out, with Caroline giving them 24 hours to make peace.

Lauren and Albie have always been close, but they're at odds here, with her saying he always plays the victim, calling him “dramatic” and “pathetic.”

“I don’t think Brittany’s the right girl for him,” she says of his new girl, which sort of triggered this rift the previous week in the Garden State family.

Albie told Lauren, apparently, that she's a toxic person he doesn’t want her in his life anymore, and that he's going to date whomever is right for him.

His mom tells him to go apologize to Lauren, regardless.

Lauren thinks no one sees her side and how this is affecting her, and that the family is always taking Albie’s side. Mom wants to throw them both out.

If you watch Manzo'd With Children online and saw the Brittany situation unfold, you know she might not be the best fit with this close-knit group.

Manzo'd With Children, Bravo's new spinoff slash companion series of The Real Housewives of New Jersey starring Caroline Manzo, is a different creature.

As Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 3 showed us again last night, this is half, if not more than half family sitcom and the rest reality show.

This week, kids Chris and Albie get their own plot line (it was plotted, so we use the term literally), revolving around their restaurant venture in the Meadowlands.

Of course, their "restaurant" is more of a beer truck. Nice landscaping, though.

The Meadowlands Racetrack establishment ultimately looks like a success, and even though it was likely never in doubt, it was nice to see it come together.

Albie can always count on mom for support in business, but when it comes to romance? That's a different story when you watch Manzo'd With Children online.

On last night's Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 1, a former Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member returned with her new Bravo spinoff series.

Is it worth watching, though, compared with the show she started on?

Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 1 re-introduces us to Caroline Manzo, who not-so-famously split from the franchise for her own half-hour series.

Jacqueline Laurita, who is Caroline's sister-in-law, will join her along with her kids ... who are back and driving her up the wall. No surprise there!

Albie and Chris ditched their bachelor pad to move back into her place to save money, while Lauren's gearing up for her wedding to fiance Vito Scalia.

So much upper middle class drama in Franklin Lakes!

In On Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 2, she pushes them to broaden their world view a bit, which in her mind means a trip to trapeze camp.

Teresa Giudice is desperate to get in.

And Caroline Manzo just got out.

With Giudice hoping to sign a new deal with Bravo and play a major role on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6, multiple outlets confirm that Manzo will NOT be returning to the franchise that made her famous.

This mother of three was an original cast member then RHONJ debuted in 2009, but her departure from the flagship does not mean viewers have seen the last of Caroline Manzo. Far from it.

Caroline Manzo is preparing to leave The Real Housewives of New Jersey behind.

According to The Wrap, the reality star will soon film a pilot for her very own Bravo spinoff. It will tragically be titled Manzo'd With Children. No, really.

The series will chronicle the Housewife in her duties as the “ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family," according to a network statement, with grown kids Albie, Chris and Lauren all signed on to appear.

Caroline's sister Fran will also be a regular cast member.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns and "The Blonde Drops a Bombshell"…or did she? We break down the rumors and ridiculous set ups in THG's +/- recap!

The Biggest Tongue

The Housewives once again gave us bad singing and even worse fake meetings. It was hard to figure out which was more cringe worthy.

Let's start with Melissa Gorga's singing talent. Minus 50. Please God, I beg you, make all Housewives end their supposed musical careers.

Seriously. It's nothing but painful for both the audience and the professionals that Bravo pays to come in and critique them.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey came up with "Zen Things I Hate About You." Just how long will this retreat last? We recap the zen and broken glass in our THG +/- review.

Melissa's Birthday Surprise

How long has this group been in Arizona?

Honestly, if I had paid big bucks to stay at this spa and had to put up with Richie and the double Joes by the pool I'd be pretty ticked off. Minus 15.

But that's nothing compared to watching Joe Gorga suck on his wife's toes for her birthday.

Minus 30. I'm not sure which was more disturbing, that or having Teresa Giudice give Melissa Gorga black lace peace sign panties for her birthday.

I doubt any amount of meditation will wipe that from my mind.

Leave it to The Real Housewives of New Jersey to turn a "Horse Whisper to a Scream." 

Read on as we break down who among the women embraced their vulnerable side and who ended up looking like a horse's a$$ in THG's official +/- recap!

Not the Horse Whisperer

Jersey is still in the house at the Mirval Resort and Spa and it may never be the same again.

But psychic advisors and gong therapy aren't what Melissa envisioned for her birthday.  "I'm done. I want a f**king cocktail by the pool in a bikini." Plus 15. No one can say she's not a girl who knows what she want.

Everyone's still recovering from the ghost whisperer when they all head out to see a horse whisperer.  Funny thing is, Wyatt the equine therapist reads these Jersey housewives and their hubbies like the comic book characters they are. Plus 22.

This week on The Real Housewives on New Jersey, we were shown a "Hair-Binger of Doom" as a six year old gets her own professional hair care line.

Yup, anything can happen in Jersey and we recap it all in our THG +/- review.

Pass the Hookah

I've lost count of the amount of products Teresa Guidice has out there but this one might just top the list. Now she's got a professional hair care line…and she's named it after her six year old.

Minus 20.  First off, I've never much liked Teresa's hair.  Second, don't you think her other kids might be a little ticked off that Milania's getting all the attention? Way to play favorites there Mom.

And is little Milania angling for her own show? Plus 8 because her parading around in a padded bra was disturbingly funny as was telling Tre to take her name off the product if she couldn't come to the launch party.

In reality it's just another Housewives money making scheme and with all the Guidice legal issues I'm sure their lawyers will take every penny they can get.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey heads back to the Teresa and Jacqueline summit as the "Children of the Scorned" try to patch up their friendship.

We recap the tattered remains in THG's +/- review.

The Real '80s

After last week where Teresa Giudice called Jacqueline evil and Jac shot back with calling Tre a sociopath, I was expecting more from this summit meaning.

Minus 15 because instead of a cat fight it was a giant snooze fest. I don't think anyone really owned up to anything from the past, they just decided to move on.  How long will it be before it all falls apart once again?

The worst part was having to hear Joe Guidice talk about autism once again.

Minus 12 because the ignorant meter was  spiking off the charts. But then again, if we kept Joe to speaking about subjects he actually understood, it wouldn't give him much air time.
