This week on Manzo'd With Children, the Manzo men head to Sin City for some male bonding while Caroline takes a big step in turning her new soap-making hobby into a business. Read on for a full recap of the episode...

It's time for the annual Manzo man trip!  This year, Albert Manzo is taking his boys to Las Vegas (where he happens to be moderating a breakout session on catering weddings) for some good old-fashioned male bonding. And since he's officially married into the family, even Vito Scalia gets an invite - though Albert insists that his new son-in-law's inclusion is strictly on a trial basis. Since the women are being left behind for the weekend, Caroline's decided to expand her soap-making hobby by entering a local craft fair. As she explains in her confessional, Caroline's dedicated her entire life to this point to being a mom. Now it's time for the evolution of the Manzo matriarch to really begin, and that starts with selling her soaps at the Sugarloaf Art Fair.

The men make it to Vegas and are greeted by the biggest diva of the RHONJ universe. That's right folks, Greg Bennett is crashing the boys' trip! First on the itinerary are front row seats to Zumanity, the erotic Circque du Soleil at the New York - New York Hotel and Casino. Now, I can't think of anything I'd want to do less with my new father-in-law, but Vito seems particularly pumped about the idea of watching topless acrobats fly sensually around in the air. Chris Manzo chalks this excitement up to the promise of what he calls UFB, a made-up acronym standing for "unfamiliar boobie." Since Zumanity is an interactive experience, it's no surprise when the drag queen performers pull Albie Manzo onstage and promptly start pulling his shirt off and undoing his belt. However, all I can think of during the entire performance is that NeNe Leakes did it first on RHOA, honey. BLOOP!

Back in New Jersey, Lauren Manzo pouts to her cousin Candice about feeling left out of the man trip. She doesn't understand how Vito can jump at the chance to run to Vegas for a weekend with her brothers but never takes her out anymore. The honeymoon phase certainly seems to be over for these two newlyweds. Plus, the man trip has gotten in the way of their baby plans; Lauren's ovulating while Vito's off experiencing the joys of UFB. Guess the baby-making will have to wait until next month...

Bright and early the next morning, the guys head to the breakout session Albert is moderating while Caroline packs up her soaps and heads to Somerset, New Jersey for the craft festival. With Vito's mother Denise Scalia helping as her assistant, Caroline sets up her booth and quickly realizes she may be in over her head. Other vendors at the fair have massive displays and the Manzo matriarch clearly had no idea what a major deal this festival was. After a few awkward encounters with fairgoers turning their noses up at her soap, Caroline finally makes her first sale of the day and the customers start pouring in. It seems like Caroline's new business venture could be on its way to becoming a runaway success.

On their last day in Vegas, Vito bonds with Greg by revealing he and Lauren are trying to get pregnant while Chris is in for one last Sin City surprise. After the show the night before, the Zumanity performs invited the Manzos to come back the next day for a special backstage tour. What they didn't know was that the tour would involve a very special transformation for the youngest Manzo man in the form of a drag makeover. Clad in a blonde lace-front wig, stripper heels and dangly clip-on earrings, Chris is introduced by the Zumanity MC as Miss Limoncello, the "most beautiful woman in the entire world." The rest of the family can't help but die of laughter, including Caroline and Lauren, who see the big reveal via FaceTime. Now that one of the men has been morphed into a Vegas drag queen, it may be time to head back to Jersey before things get even more out of hand...
