The Real Housewives Of New Jersey: New Lawsuit For Lauritas And Manzos!

December 17, 2011 09:09 AM by Martha Zaborowski

Another day in Jersey, another day for members of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey to get sued. (Does is shock you as much as it shocks me that the lovely and demure families of The Real Housewives of New Jersey get sued more often than cast members of the Jersey Shore?) This lawsuit involves two families from The Real Housewives of New Jersey: the Manzos and the Lauritas, specifically Chris Manzo and Albie Manzo (Caroline’s sons) and Chris Laurita (Jacqueline’s husband). Why are they being sued?

The Manzo and Laurita family have been promoting a beverage called BLK for the past few months. Essentially, BLK is black-colored water with minerals, electrolytes, and antioxidants. They are being sued by Creative Thinkers for inappropriately using, “reality TV fame to sell a false story about how the idea for a fulvic- and humic-acid infused health drink originated.” Creative Thinkers says the family stole their idea of a product called BLACKWATER(TM) product and “conspired…to steal the product, marketing, and distribution plan.”

Well, the Laurita-Manzo boys are selling a product called “BLK,” which is black-colored water…I am sensing perhaps a little similarity to this BLACKWATER(TM) product…

Jacqueline Laurita is still tweeting about the product: @jaclaurita: “This months ‘Hit List’ in Beverage World magazine. One of the most innovative products! BLK!” According to AllAboutTRH.com, when Jacqueline was asked about the lawsuit by a Twitter follower she direct messaged her privately: “He [Chris Laurita] didn’t steal anything. I guess you’ll soon find that out. Don’t be so ignorant.” Additionally, both @albiemanzo and @chrismanzo have the Web site BLKBeverages.com listed on their Twitter profiles as well.

Good news for one Jersey family, however: looks like Teresa Giudice’s bankruptcy trial has been dropped, which was scheduled on December 22 and 23. For more information on Teresa’s trial, visit StoopidHousewives.com.

    Let’s see jacqueline can you spell karma? You were all in Teresa’s business, but now that it’s your family in the hole you suddenly want family matters to stay that way. You can’t have it both ways. You should take some time off from the show,and finish raising your brat daughter. I really liked you until you showed your true colors this season. Shame on you for letting your fifteen minutes of fame go to your head. By the way I think you have about thirty seconds left make the best of it. See you in bankruptcy court……isn’t life a b####! KARMA……..

    Wow! People blames Jacqueline, saying Karma is a bit#h, wow. She wasn’t the one going to the tabloids and spreading lies about everyone and then in front of them act as if the tabloids got the info on their own and without the help by Teresa, really? We the viewers know that Teresa has been the one that has crossed the line with everyone, her family and friends, yeah friends that was there for her, but I guess like Teresa you all forgot about that and so now blame Jacqueline for talking about Teresa, really, how sad, we all know Teresa talks too much about everyone and doesn’t back it up, on top of that she lies all the time and she will do it in your face, to me that is evil selfish mean to do that to your own family and your friends that has been there for you. Not saying she owes her life, but no one treated her like shit the way she treated everyone else, I mean it was in our face and we can hear it, too, there is no editing there she said what she said and when confronted she lies straight in the face and when she can’t take it no more because she knows they know the truth she runs, she then complains that they attacking her, so no it can’t be that everyone is wrong and Teresa the lying bitch is right, sorry, it doesn’t work that way here, maybe in Teresa’s world, then yeah.

    Relevancy achieved through lawsuits that tie up our court systems and cost taxpayers unknown amounts to stroke the ego of and keep names in the limelight of those whose contributions are poor grammar, the basest of language, hurling insults and speaking untruths as children stand watching the disgusting behavior of those adults they are supposed to trust and look up to should be the new definition of narcissistic behavior disorder…see picture of Teresa Guidice in the dictionary next to that disorder.

    Saw the episode where Jaqueline was crying and her step father talking abt. all sacrifices she made to raise her daughter and trying to make her daughter feel guilty for I don’t know for her being given life absolutely disgusting Jaqueline you made that decision when you spread your legs. It was really sickening to see how your daughter was spoken 2.Horrible mother. Feel bad for ur daughter.
    Used to love these shows now its all drama and fighting and looks scripted .

    I think Tainayosoboricua said it the best & all of what she or he said is so true. I think Jaqueline & the rest of the cast (including her family) should kick Teresa to the curb where she belongs…with the garbage.

    These misfit women need to just disappear. Theresa, her stupid gangsta husband and her miserable, unhappy, unruly, rude, ugly children all need to be ashamed of themselves.

    Just a second–how did the Laurita/Manso lawsuit become the fault of Teresa’s “ugly children”?

    It’s not Tresea it’s BRAVO wake up people Bravo digs up the dirt. Then leaks it out. They leak it to one person then that person tells another. So before y’all keep insulting them ask Bravo if there to blame.

    Melissa was set up.By Kim.She knew who he was at the salon.Took Theresa there.So they would bump.Into one another.Then Theresa heard what he said at salon.She should’ve told Melissa.What happened at salon.Instead of waiting until they where in the bathroom.Jacquline forget about
    Theresa.If you can’t ask a friend.What the truth is.About something.Then (bye bye.)time.

    I used to like this show in the beginning. Only Dannielle was the bitch, but had great kids. But now they all are acting like little BRATS. Such a shame, even dragging their mothers and fathers into the fray. They should all be ashamed the way they talk to each other, family and all. And Caroline and Jacqueline are the worst trouble makers of all…..So snotty and hateful.

  17. Linda Says:

    Caroline Manzo is the meanest, sour puss, her children are spoiled brats, they never worked for anything in their life, and Lauren is the worst.
    What ever they want Mommy gives it to them, no way to raise children and you have the nerve to criticize other peoples parenting. I don’t think Theresa was behind the stripper story I think it was Kim, Jacqueline and Caroline, and Lauren. Face up Melissa you are as fake as they come. You were a stripper and I’m sure if Joe was poor you wouldn’t married him. You are money hungry, and to top it off I have friends in the music business
    you can not sing”. Money can buy anyone a recording contract.

    I am always shocked that there really is a ‘team teresa.’ I guess the people who make up team teresa are delusional, compulsive liars that almost forget they are lying. I can understand not liking the other housewives either, but not enough to become ‘team teresa.’ I could never be blind enough to buy the crap she is selling.

    This show has become discusting. I used to enjoy it no longer.Caroline,Jackie, Teresa, I really liked.what are you thinking all the families must remember that you have children.They will see or hear of this disaster some day.Watch you treat each other so dispicable made cringe I had to watch Oprah’s channel (Fix My Life),Dr.Phil, and Dr. Drew all the self help shows to feel cleansed.I know New Jersey is getting a bad rap for the behavior on this show
