Very soon, Teresa Giudice may not be the only New York Times bestselling author on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It was just announced that Caroline Manzo will be releasing her first book, Let Me Tell You Something, on March 26, 2013. In an interview with Bravo's blog The Dish, she talked about what her book will cover and what it won't.
A big part of the book will be about her raising her children. "I get so many questions about my kids and how they're so well-grounded and respectful, and how did you keep them so close. It's stories that speak to that subject matter and how I handle them or Al and I handle them together. There'll be a story about Albie and his learning disability and Lauren with her weight challenges and Christopher because he was such a cut-up in school. Stories about what they went through, how we went through it and the lesson learned at the end," she revealed.
While not a cookbook, there may even be some recipes, which is sure to please fans who have seen the food that the Housewife turns out for family parties. "It's not a cookbook at all, but after telling a story about the kids, it's more like 'here's their favorite recipe,'" she explained.
However, The Real Housewives of New Jersey fans who are hoping that she'll spill some secrets about the show and make digs at the other Housewives will be disappointed. "I absolutely refused to do anything negative about any of the other ladies. I did speak to being on Housewives and how it changed my world in so many ways, but it's just about me. It's about my kids and my marriage and my world now. Again, at 46 at the time [when I joined Housewives], taking that leap of faith. It's a positive thing -- nothing negative at all. I hate negative -- it makes me insane. Nothing negative about any Housewives -- franchise-wide," she said.
Despite Teresa Giudice making digs at her and her family in her cookbook, she's refused to go down the same road. Caroline Manzo certainly deserves credit for keeping her book positive and not mentioning the other Housewives negatively in it to boost sales. Hopefully, her book does well and shows that positivity can sell just as well.
