Caroline Manzo Gets Emotional When Talking About Autistic Nephew, Nicholas Laurita: “He’s Got a Long Road Ahead of Him” (VIDEO)

Caroline Manzo rarely ever lets the nonsense of The Real Housewives of New Jersey get to her, but one topic that does move Caroline is her nephew Nicholas and his struggle with autism.

As we saw during the Season 4 Reunion, when Andy brought up Nick’s condition both Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline dissolved into tears.

And while time in the Bravo Clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live is supposed to be lighthearted and fun, Caroline got a bit choked up when a viewer asked about Nicholas.

“My baby Nicholas, he’s got a long road ahead of him but he is sunshine. He is sunshine, and hugs, and love, and they have a very long road ahead of them. But if love could heal, he’s going to be a superstar,” she said.

Caroline continued, “It’s a mysterious condition and there’s so many questions about it but we’re diligent in finding the answers and getting our little man to where he has to be. He is loved.”
