OMJ’s Kelly Dillon with Chris Manzo

Get ready to learn a lot about Manzo’d With Children star Chris Manzo. I sat down with the Oliver Brightside: You Don’t Want That Penny author at Amanda’s Restaurant in Hoboken to ask him 21 Questions.* Let me tell you, Chris might just be the most interesting and unique person you will ever meet (and I mean that as a huge compliment). We learned some fun facts about the hilarious reality TV star, like who are his favorite Real Housewives of New Jersey (I think this one is obvious)where you can find him grabbing a drink in Hoboken on a Friday night, and what’s the one thing he can’t live without (you will never guess this one). And listen up ladies, you get to find out if this handsome 27-year-old, is single or taken. I know you are dying to know. You need to watch our hysterical chat below. I know it’s a bit long, but trust me, it’s so worth it.
