The Real Housewives of New Jersey are wrapping Season 5 and a source very close to the situation tells us EXCLUSIVELY, Albert Manzo’s extramarital affairs will be part of Caroline’s storyline in Season 5. Recently people have been coming forward with the knowledge that Albert has cheated, and Caroline continues to turn the other cheek.Â In an interview withÂ NY Daily News, Caroline spoke about the previous rumors that Albert was cheating on her.Â â€œI know the man I married. Heâ€™s a good man. But heâ€™s a man. I donâ€™t believe there were any long-term affairs. If that were the case, this story would end differently,â€ Caroline said.
“Women are coming forward revealing Albert cheats on Caroline,” our insider reveals. “Caroline knows of Albert’s infidelities, but she turns the other cheek and ignores what’s really going.”
“There are so many people talking about Albert’s affairs it was definitely a hot topic while filming,” the source explains. “It has gotten to the point where it was unavoidable and had to be addressed on-camera.”
As we previously reported, Teresa Giudice was being blamed for digging up dirt on Albert. At an event in February another source reveals to us that Teresa Giudice and Kim DePaola were trying to get Penny Drossos to admit to knowing of Albert’s affairs. Teresa and Kim Â mentioned a few other names and when Penny didn’t respond to Albert’s, “they took it as a yes that he was cheating on Caroline.” Our insider reveals this prompted Caroline to confront Penny and Caroline said “all of the problems were Penny’s fault.” After the two women “had a few words,” Penny blurted out that she’s not looking to hurt Caroline, and that “they” wanted her to talk about Albert and she refused.
Keep in mind Albert’s cheating was a topic while the women were filming in February, all the way until last week when they were close to wrapping.
UPDATE:Â 9/6/2013 Albert’s cheating was addressed in a confrontation between Caroline Manzo and Penny Drossos during the opening of POSCHE 2, however Bravo edited out the confrontation where Penny exposed Al’s affairs. Our sources tell us the topic of Albert’s cheating WILL be addressed again in season 6.
Are YOU surprised Albert’s affairs will be addressed on-camera?
