Jacqueline Laurita’s husband, Chris, loves to provide for his wife and family, and last season, he was frequently shown spoiling his stepdaughter Ashlee, but what exactly does Caroline Manzo’s younger brother do to earn the big bucks?

Unlike the Joes (Gorga and Giudice, that is), Chris isn’t in the construction business. Instead, the hardworking guy is an entrepreneur of sorts. He launched blk water with his nephews Albie and Christopher Manzo last year, and prior to that, he was in the apparel business for many years.

Chris was the CEO of Signature Apparel Group — which he founded with his brother in Joseph 2005 — until the company filed for bankruptcy in 2009. While the company made more than $250 million during that time, the Lauritas were later sued for using the company’s earnings to cover their own personal expenses  claims that they vehemently denied.
