The Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Caroline Manzo Announces Daughter Lauren's Engagement Loud and Proud (As If We Expected Anything Less)


Lauren Manzo, daughter of The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo, is engaged to her boyfriend, Vito Scalia, and we'd bet good money that their wedding reception will be at the Manzo family business, the Brownstone! The proud future mother-of-the-bride shared the news with a glowing photo of the betrothed couple on her website, Instagram, Twitter, and basically any other photo-sharing social media platform. With the love and attention she showers on her children. But that should come as no surprise to fans of the show.

The photograph puts Lauren's engagement ring in clear view, and it appears to be a real show-stopper. Based on looks alone we'd guess it (almost) rivals the bling-tastic, 15-carat rings belonging to Kim Kardashian and Ciara.

Though Caroline recently announced that she won't return for Housewives's next season, we'll still probably get to see all of the wedding planning details on TV—Bravo just revealed that she is filming a pilot for her family's spinoff called Manzo'd With Children. NeNe and Gregg Leakes' televised nuptials confirmed our love for witnessing a wedding planning process from start to finish, especially when the family and friends involved are outrageously entertaining. We're sure Lauren's won't disappoint!

Like fellow future Jersey bride Snooki, we expect no detail will be spared. Lauren is the first of Caroline's children to get engaged, after all. Don't be surprised if the newlyweds slice into a luxe gold wedding cake, boogie to the hottest tunes, and have bridesmaids and groomsmen decked out in the finest attire. We can't wait to see it all come together! Congratulations!
