While chatting with the hilarious Chris Manzo at Amanda’s Restaurant in Hoboken about his new children’s book, Oliver Brightside: You Don’t Want That Penny, he gave me the inside scoop on Season 3 of Manzo’d With Children, which is returning to Bravo this summer. The show follows the adventures of former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo and her brood, sons Chris and Albie Manzo, daughter Lauren Manzo, and husband Albert Manzo. Watch below or read on to find out when the show is coming back, and what we can expect to see this season.

Chris tells me Season 3 will be premiering later this summer, but there’s no exact date yet. He says, “I don’t know. I probably couldn’t tell you if I did know, but I really  don’t know. I would imagine late summer, around when Housewives is getting up.  I dont think it’ll be as soon as July, because we just stopped filming like a month ago.”

The new author tells me this season will be a bit different from the previous two. Chris says, “This is the most fun year for us I think. In the first season we were nervous, we kind of had that Housewives anxiety, and worrying about doing as well as we could do. And second season was so wedding based that it was easy, where this was as close as it’s going to get to turning on a camera and just following us. It’s real, just what we did everyday. It’s just fun”

Chris says the premiere episode will be great, “I saw a little bit of the first episode. It’s really, really funny. It’s really good, so I’m excited about it.”

Oliver Brightside: You Don’t Want That Penny is available online and in bookstores now.
