Lauren Manzo opened up earlier this year about undergoing lapband surgery to help her lose weight and shared how it enabled her to shed 30 lbs. Lauren showed off her new physique in a spread featured in Us magazine back in June and has been successful keeping the weight off.
Lauren enjoyed treats over Christmas, even sharing photos of her indulging in her mom's traditional holiday goodies – complete with sprinkles. But she kept herself in check and is ready to work on her new goal.

I'll be honest, I don't know if I'm emotionally prepared for this premiere…or the season for that matter. Of course, I can't wait…especially when we get to see a glimpse into Abby Lee Miller's love life. There seemed to be a lot scripted, but it was still flipping amazing.
The third season of Dance Moms starts with the girls and moms reunite in the parking lot after a long break during the competition season. Noticeably absent are Kelly, Paige, and Brooke. Abby is beyond pissed at Kelly for breaking up the team, but she's equally as upset with the other girls for not consistently coming to practice during their break…news she just found out having spent her break in L.A. filming her spin-off competition show. She immediately tosses the pyramid head shots in the trash because none of them belong on the top, and the girls become teary when Abby announces that she's holding an audition to replace Brooke and Paige before the group heads to a competition in Denver.
The girls are rehearsing their group number, Angels and Demons…except now it's just Angel Singular and Demons because that's what happens when people are quitters. Is it just me or when Abby describes the characters in her choreography do you think she's envisioning herself as the victim or protagonist? "This dance is about an angel who is strong, but she has all of these horrible awful bleached blonde crazies with acrylic nails demons trying to tear her apart." Give me a break! In the viewing room, Jill is hoping that she can get the other moms onboard with calling for a reinstatement of the pyramid. She hates Abby trashed it without giving her daughter any opportunity to be at the top.
No! Bad, Vicki Gunvalson, bad! Time. OUT! According to twitter, facebook, and the gossiping mouth of Dr. Terry Dubrow, Vicki spent her New Year's holiday cozying up to ultimate loserBrooks Ayers. Is there a Hallmark for 'I'm so sorry I embarrassed you on TV and ruined your reputation by being a deadbeat loser, but I really, really need to borrow your car so can we get back together?' Guess so!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star who recently said she broke up with Brooks is either having second thoughts (NO!) or perhaps they're still friends – possibly friend with benefits (retch!).
“In Deer Valley for New Year’s Eve. It is going to be an amazing dinner and dancing with great people. Football with Heather [Dubrow] tomorrow. Everyone please be safe tonight and do not drink and drive! HAPPY NEW YEAR!” Vicki wrote on Facebook. Well one part of that equation was conveniently left out – the part where Brooks was included in their couples party of four!
The infamous Real Housewives of New Jersey family feud continues. We hoped 2013 could bring renewed peace and love (if it ever existed in the first place) to sisters-in-laws Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. Guess not. Which is a bummer cause I'm really tired of writing about this.
Our source shares how Teresa spent her New Year's and who was not invited. Hint, hint: her initials are M.G. No surprise there! Unfortunately the Gorga family feud runs deeper than sisters-in-law who don't see eye-to-eye as Teresa's elderly parents barely have a relationship with their only son as a result of Melissa's alleged scheming and desperate famewhoring.
Let's just say the word "built" should be used loosely. According to super sleuths TamaraTattles and TV Fishbowl Kim purchased a home located in The Manor Golf and Country Club in Alpharetta, GA. It's an uber fancy subdivision and golf course where former RHOA star DeShawn Snow's home was also located. DeShawn sold the house following her divorce.
It's a Dance Mom's extravaganza! Lifetime knows a good thing when it pas de bourées in the ratings, and the network is going to milk this cash cow for all it's worth. You know what that means? It means that last night you were treated to two and half hours of Abby Lee Miller and the drama mamas. It felt like Christmas all over again, didn't it?
In the hour leading up to the season three premiere, Jeff Collins returned to lead yet another reunion type show, only this time the ladies would be highlighting the upcoming drama instead of rehashing the past. Let's see how this works. Abby is wearing a lot of sequins and bling and spray tan. Taking a few questions from the studio audience, she reveals that she has a special man in her life, and the mothers are the most selfish people on the planet. Okey, dokey. Poor Jeff looks one Ambien shy of hibernation, but luckily the stage setting mirrors (literally!) Abby's outfit, so all the twinkling should keep him awake at least until the premiere begins. He is going to bring out the moms to have some one-on-one time with Abby and the audience.
Holly is the first to untangle her way through the sequined streamers, and she is wearing a tomato red number that seems to combine the finest vinyl with raw silk. Abby immediately comments about it under her breath to Jeff. Holly often gets on Abby's nerves, what with her professional demeanor and her need to analyze things. Holly takes one audience member's question, and responds with a non-answer before making a swift exit.
