Everyone knows that Caroline Manzo is a bit of an expert when it comes to family life. Bravo is even giving her the first Real Housewives of New Jersey spin-off pilot, Manzo'd With Children, which is completely centered around her beloved brood. So, naturally, Caroline was invited to appear on Dr. Oz and share her tips for maintaining a healthy family.

Her number-one piece of advice? Smile and love each other! No hate, she insists. "When you walk in your house, love has to live there," she explains.

For her next words of wisdom, she suggests that families need to spend time together — good times and bad times. "Eat together, laugh together. Even through the bad times you've got to spend time together, because you help each other through that." We gotta say, that sounds like very, very solid advice to us.

She also reminds families to look after each other, like keeping your mother from eating cheesecake and forcing her to exercise!  

Unfortunately, Caroline and her sister, Dina Manzo, still don't seem to be speaking, but that's a whole other story.
