“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Caroline Manzo may have been a stay-at-home mother to her three children when fans first met her on the show, but she has always been supportive of her husband, who runs The Brownstone in New Jersey. The event venue has been on the show since the very first season and has hosted some of the biggest fights on the show. And while the family has relied on the income from the event venue for years, Caroline is now revealing that she is making her own money. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report released on March 23, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Caroline Manzo reveals that she is working hard and she is making more than her husband now.
“Do I think the man should be the primary breadwinner? It depends on the man,” Caroline has revealed in an interview, as she has been promoting her new book, “Let Me Tell You Something.” While her husband has been bringing home the bacon for years, Caroline has revealed that she is now making her more than her husband thanks to the popularity of the show. “Now I make more than him,” she starts. “He loves it!”
So, does Albert really support her and her career? “If a woman had a career that she enjoys and she loves and she makes a great salary, it would be a shame if she didn’t continue with it because her husband wasn’t comfortable with it … that, I wouldn’t like to see,” Caroline adds. “Do what works as a couple, because you’re a team,” she advises. “If a woman out earns her husband, he should celebrate it and be proud of her rather than see it as a failure on his part, because it’s not.”
Are you surprised that Caroline is making lots of money from the show?
