So far on Season 5 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, we've seen Caroline Manzo's sons working hard to open their very own restaurant, Little Town New Jersey. But when Caroline visited with Andy Cohen during a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, one caller wondered if Albert is postponing his retirement because he's waiting for one of his boys to take over his eatery, The Brownstone. According to Caroline, Albert actually feels the opposite.

"Not at all," she replied, adding, "If anything, he's the one that's saying go and do your thing and The Brownstone will always be here if you want it, but he wants them to go and find out for themselves what they want."

In fact, Caroline claimed that dad forced them out of the family business.

"He pushed them out and if they come back in, he'll welcome them with open arms ... if not, he's happy," she shared.

Were you surprised to see Albie and Chris open their own restaurant instead of taking over The Brownstone?

Check out Caroline’s complete thoughts on the matter below and weigh in.
