Real Housewife of New Jersey Caroline Manzo—you know, the most dignified, best-behaved one on the show with the cute sons?—is launching a handbag line. WWD reports: "The debut collection — a joint venture with Kristino handbags, the owner of the license for Manzo’s collection — comprises about 18 styles, from wristlets to hobos and overnight bags, which range in price from $45 to $450." The bags will be in stores this fall. [WWD]
