Report: 'RHoNJ' Members Reunite With Xanax
Lauren Manzo says drug was 'passed around like candy' at reunion taping
Lauren Manzo, daughter of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Caroline Manzo, tells Us Weekly that the cast members needed some help making it through their vicious Season 4 reunion taping last month in Atlantic City.
"Xanax was being passed around like candy," she told the gossip magazine.
If true, it's hard to imagine how beserk these housewives would have gone on Teresa Giudice without the aid of the anti-anxiety drug. Only a hint of the fireworks was shown in the first of the reunion's three parts, which Bravo aired on Sunday. By the end of the taping, reportedly, no one had a voice left.
“There was so much yelling, [host] Andy [Cohen] was shouting at everybody to be quiet!” Manzo said.
As we saw on Sunday's show, Giudice questioned the strength of cousin Kathy Wakile's union to husband Richie. Next week, however, the hot seat is occupied by Giudice, whom Jacqueline Laurita claims once confessed to walking in on her husband, Joe, having sex with a woman on the desk in his office.
Part 2 of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" reunion airs Sunday, Oct. 7, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
