What Is Caroline Manzo's Net Worth? The 'Manzo'd With Children' Star Has More Going On Than Just The Brownstone
The Beatles once famously sang "All You Need Is Love," and I think out of all of the Real Housewives we've seen over the years, Caroline Manzo would be the most likely to subscribe to that credo. For Caroline, it always seemed like the happiness and well-being of her three children and husband Albert took precedence over all of the craziness going down on RHONJ — and the fame and fortune that it brought cast members. Now that doesn't mean the former Real Housewife doesn't like the finer things in life, too. The huge, gorgeous Franklin Lakes home we currently see on The Real Housewives of New Jersey spinoff Manzo'd with Children every week is definitely proof of that. So I can't help but wonder how much Caroline's net worth is whenever I see her impressive digs on TV.
There's no official report of Caroline's net worth, and since this Bravo star likes to keep many details of her personal life hush-hush, I can't say I'm shocked that she won't let the world take a peek at her checkbook. However, Celebrity Net Worth reports that Caroline has an estimated net worth of $8 million, though it cannot be confirmed, so take that for what you will.
Still, it's safe to say that Caroline has some moolah in the bank and not just because of her fancy-schmancy home. Caroline lives in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, a suburb where residents have a median annual income of nearly $150,000, according to the United States Census Bureau, which is more than twice the median household income of the state of New Jersey and almost three times as much as the national median household income.
Much of Caroline's apparent wealth has probably come from The Brownstone, a successful events space in Paterson, New Jersey that Albert has run with his family for more than 30 years. However, Caroline has definitely worked hard for her own money, too. Although the salaries of The Real Housewives stars vary wildly, OK! Magazine reported in 2013 that Caroline raked in $400,000 a season when she was on RHONJ. However, it's unclear exactly where that number came from and it can't be confirmed, so we should all probably take it with a grain of salt. Still, Caroline probably snagged a nice sum for all of the table-flipping, hair extension-pulling, and stripper rumors she had to endure on RHONJ. It's also likely that she's earning a nice paycheck these days for Manzo'd with Children, since she is the lead and all.
Outside of her TV appearances, Caroline has also been keeping busy. She wrote a self-help book aptly titled Let Me Tell You Something in 2013. Caroline also has a podcast by the same available to listen to on SoundCloud, but she hasn't released any new episodes since March.
Unfortunately, we all still have to wait for that scrumptious-looking barbecue sauce Caroline teased she was going to bottle up and sell to the masses during Season 1 of Manzo'd with Children, as it looks like it's still not yet on sale. If the sauce does eventually hit stores and if it's a big hit, we could be talking about a very different net worth for Caroline in the future.
