Albie and Chris Moron-zo… “I say we call it WHITE water. It would be reverse psychology! That’s all I got…”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Prince Albie Moron-zo and his bro, bartender Chris, are included in a lawsuit filed by Creative Thinkers, Inc. against them AND their uncle, Jax Laurita’s husband, Chris Laurita for stealing the blackwater concept and selling it in the US.

There was a previous post on SH, but an interesting article from a Canadian perspective in today’s Vancouver Sun… Creative Thinkers and BLK water is a Vancouver-based business:
“According to the documents filed by the plaintiffs, Louise and Jacqueline Wilkie first agreed to help Solomon and Jung in October 2009 to bottle a test run of the Blackwater product.
In February 2010 the Wilkie sisters, who run a company out of Langley that makes coffee syrup products, each gained a 10 per cent ownership stake in Blackwater in exchange for helping Solomon and Jung get Canadian and U.S. trademarks and patents. Jung and Solomon split the remaining 80 per cent of the company evenly.
In the summer of last year, the sisters hawked the product at the New York Fancy Foods Show, where they met Chris Manzo, Albie Manzo and Chris Laurita.
Jacqueline Wilkie transferred Blackwater’s Canadian patent and trademark registration to Solomon and Jung this summer, but did not transfer U.S. rights despite agreeing to do so.
The Wilkies, together with the Manzo-Laurita family, applied to transfer Blackwater’s U.S. patent to a new company named blk. Beverages, using a near replica of the bottle first made by the sisters for Solomon and Jung.
[Solomon and Jung] came up with this unique design and marketing concept and product, along with the Blackwater name and it was . . . stolen from them,” he said.
The reality TV show became a platform for blk., he said. “A number of characters on the show used the show to promote the … product that did not belong to them,” Ghajar continued. “There were some episodes about it, and they continue to use the TV show to get the word out about the product.”
NOTE: Could this be the reason for the IRS visiting the Laurita’s last week? Or, maybe the visit had to do with Jax and Chris Laurita’s $8 million lawsuit…
