Fans lined up outside Whole Foods in Northdale late Monday afternoon to get up close with some of their favorite reality stars.
Chris and Albie Manzo of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" came to the store to promote their new mineral rich Blk Water. The dark hued water has become a pop culture cool factor since being served up at the Sundance Film Festival.
"I respect that family from watching them," said Joezette Hite, a South Tampa resident who stood in line to see the Manzos and get her bottle of Blk water autographed. "They just have this great dynamic."
The younger Manzos were joined by their mother Caroline, sister Lauren along with family and show stars Christopher Laurita and wife Jacqueline.
Blk water is just like the title indicates - black. The color comes from the fulvic trace minerals that are infused in the water. Whole Foods had the water on sale this week 3 for $5.
The minerals provide an added health benefit to drinking the water. Like sports sports drinks and coconut water, it balances the body's Ph balance, said Albie Manzo.
"When we saw the water it was so different and unique," said Christopher Laurita, Albie's uncle who appears on the show with his wife, Jacqueline.
Anecdotally the Manzos said the water has been working for those who drink it regularly.
"When you drink it day to day you see the difference," Albie said.
