Caroline Manzo is taking to her Bravo Blog to clear up any rumors about divorce between her and her husband, Albert. Caroline says she hates that her son, Albie, worries about her relationship with his father and that she wishes he wouldn’t take on other people’s problems. Caroline says she and Albert have ups and downs but there is no divorce hiding in the background and that they are content with each other.
Caroline writes, “Albie makes me so sad sometimes. I hated to hear him say he wasn’t ready to be happy. He’s such a serious kid, or man, I should say… I understand and agree that my children have a strong work ethic, and believe me, that’s something that Al and I instilled in the three of them from a very young age. However, a balance of work and play is very important for the mind. Albie is incapable of creating the balance. My husband Albert is the same way and he can’t see my point, therefore, we do disagree from time to time when it comes to the kids. Do me a favor, relax and don’t read too much into his attitude at the dinner table. Albert and I have been together for over 32 years and have had our fair share of ups, downs, and everything in between. There is no divorce hiding in the shadows or discontent with each other. It’s a simple disagreement between two people that have been together for nearly a lifetime. End of story.
When I stopped by Albie’s apartment to talk to him, he mentioned that he was worried about me and Al. Again, relax! I remember when Albie was younger, we would go into the city every now and again without Al for lunch, etc. This kid would actually hold my hand and look after me as if I was the child and he was the adult. All three of my kids are fiercely protective over me, and I love them for it. However, there’s a difference of being protective and living your life in fear of a “maybe.”
I’ve told Albie more times than I can count that God forbid his father predeceases me, there’s nothing he or anyone else can do for me. Al and I have always lived within our means, saved, and invested carefully. We have life insurance policies in place for each of us and a home that is nearly paid for. The bottom line is this — I will be a very wealthy woman with a shattered heart. Money can’t fix that. Having my children around me healthy and happy is what I will need then. Everything else has been carefully thought out and prepared for. Ugh, I hate this discussion, let’s end it.”
