Time to send our congrats to Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo’s daughter, Lauren. The 25-year-old is celebrating the 1-year anniversary of her Cafface Beauty Bar with the RHoNJ cast and cameras in tow. In addition to that, the cast is celebrating the opening of Lauren’s brothers Albie and Chris Manzo’s eatery Little Town.
Caroline told TBB Reality, “As a parent you raise your children to soar and be strong. There’s no prouder moment than to see your child get their wings and fly and I’ve seen that tonight with Lauren.”
It looks like Caroline’s kiddos’ businesses are a real RHoNJ affair, as Kathy Wakile’s sister, Rosie Pierri (who works in furniture), helped with the decor. Then there’s Albie’s ex-girlfriend, Lindsey Andrews, who works the front desk at the hot spot and the event was catered by none other than Brownstone, owned by Caroline and her husband Al. RHoNJ cast members Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga were patrons, buying coverups for the Jersey Shore summer in the boutique located in the back of the beauty bar.
Makeup artists were on hand giving makeovers and there was a hair extension station open for the April fundraiser for Autism Unites Us. Jacqueline Laurita sported several blue strands in support of her son Nicholas, who is autistic. Castmates and press were said to have enjoyed themselves the entire night and TBB even got time to interview the young business owner on her 1-year success.
“I learned to really appreciate small businesses,” Lauren told TBB Reality. “I’m proud of the other small businesses still standing and I’m in support of them all.”
