In Real Housewives of New Jersey season four Lindsey Andrews made quite a stir as the girlfriend Albie Manzo was nervous to introduce to mom. In season five, no longer on the show…or with her former beau…she made an even bigger statement in the form of a very talked about blue dress. Though she says she no longer dates the eldest Manzo offspring, she still has the heart of his mother, Caroline, who has become a mom away from home for the Rhode Island native. In an effort to catapult a burgeoning career in fashion design, Mrs. Manzo, as the shy twenty five year old refers to her, ordered a custom dress, one which she surprised Lindsey by wearing on the Reunion show.
The royal blue gown sparked a sensation and rumors that Jacqueline Laurita‘s red number was also an Andrew’s original. We caught up with Lindsey to learn more about the face behind the blue fabric. Impressed by her beautiful apartment we got some great Looking Real Housewife Rich for Real Cheap interior design advice from Lindsey. We hope you are as inspired as we were…so much so that I now have a Buddha on my dresser too!
