Overview

Red-hot advice from the redhead who doesn't pull any punches

Mother, wife, and fan favorite Caroline Manzo has been through it all as one of the original breakout stars of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The explosive and addicting reality series has seen some of the craziest moments in Real Housewives history, but Caroline has managed to set herself apart as the levelheaded, fiercely loyal, and down-to-earth member of the cast.

Now Caroline, who is known for her no-nonsense advice, "tells you something" about what it really takes to juggle three kids and a husband (and still maintain your sanity), all while living in the spotlight. Her wisdom on family, life, and love, and her shockingly honest confessions about beauty, body image, and even plastic surgery, resonate with women of every generation. Equal parts funny, sincere, and revealing, Caroline exposes the sweeter, more reflective side of herself that fans of the show might not always see.

Filled with personal stories, family photos, and Caroline's characteristic humor, Let Me Tell You Something gives fans and readers an all-access, behind-the-scenes pass into the life of this real New Jersey housewife and her family, where honest advice and practical life lessons are served up as only Caroline can.

Don't waste you time or money. I love you Caroline, but you cannot write! the margins are so large in some area, this is a 183 nook book that is really 100 pages. And hse just keeps repeating the same stuff over and over again. Sorry.

This book will teach you absolutely nothing. It is a waste of money.

I was particularly struck by a passage in Ms. Manzo's "book," where she describes her children as jokesters and then tells a disturbing story....her son Christopher was filming in Punta Cunta and the cameraman was walking backwards in order to obtain the footage (with a very expensive camera). Christopher saw that the cameraman was going to fall right into a pool and ruin the equipment and did not say a word because he thought it would be hilarious. Thankfully, a member of production saved the poor man from not only embarrassment, but I bet also having to reimburse the cost of that highly expensive equipment. If this is how Ms. Manzo raises her children, I will decline any advice she has to give. Shame on her, and her son. Not everyone was born with a silver spoon.

Same condescending point of view as seen on RHONJ. Was hoping for something for different.

Same "holier than thou" attitude thought this would be different and is not.

The book was very interesting, especially if you wanted to see a better picture of Carolyn Manzo. She talks about her life, it is not a tell all about the other New Jersey housewives. If you love Carolyn from the TV show you should enjoy learning more about her.

For a 51 year old mother of three on a hit reality show, Caroline Manzo should have more to "tell". The book is based on questions asked of her via email or presumably her radio show. Throughout there is a sprinkling of 'Ask Caroline' - fans asking advice. But I wouldn't consider this a memoir. As a RH fan, Caroline was never my favorite housewife but I could tell she was an excellent wife and mother. As probably most of those who watch the show mirror my opinion and a lot of her 'advice' is related to she being a good wife and mother. And kudos for her for stating - "my husband comes first"! My problem with the book is that she comes from a large Italian American family and said next to nothing about any of her siblings - even Dina, who she had been estranged from. There's really no substance. And, if looking for any insights into the show or gossip, you won't find it here. The only information she shares is her self-stroking "the RH staff is like family" and how she makes sure they're fed and gives them gifts at Christmas. In fact, there's a lot of self-stroking in this book - probably trying to justify herself to critics. Caroline's book is short but I commend her on writing a book and getting it published.

A very interesting book. Worth reading. The author has a strong and powerful voice. It is no wonder she is a success.
