This weekend is a busy one for Bravolebrities! So many events going on – like Lauren Manzo's engagement party!
Lauren Manzo and Vito Scalia gathered their friends and family at the Brownstone to celebrate their engagement tonight! A few of the photos from the evening made their way to Instagram via Jacqueline Laurita and others and it looks like it was a good night – and a drama-free night! So rare for a Bravo event, right?
Among those in attendance to celebrate the upcoming marriage (which may be filmed for their spinoff show): Melissa and Joe Gorga, Jacs and Chris Laurita, Kathy and Rich Wakile and of course the proud parents – Caroline and Albert Manzo. Caroline was even caught on camera dancing with her future son-in-law's father. Since the show finished filming its first season already, I wonder if it was filmed for possible use in a second season?
It doesn't look like Dina or Teresa scored an invite…..
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

Chris Manzo and his brotherAlbie are expanding their business once again. The Manzo boys' partnership with restaurateurs Michael Sinensky and Sean McGarr of Funbars.com must be doing well with Little Town New Jersey because they are set to work with them on a new venture: the Victory Sports Bar and Club.
Chris and Albie's new bar will be a "Vegas style" sports bar at Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, according to Us Weekly. The Victory bar is set to open in just a few weeks and then in April they plan to open a rooftop space, "Victory Terrace", which will have views of the city and table service. It's no bikini car wash, but it sounds like a winner.
Jacqueline shared at the event, “My husband and I are so excited to be here and I am so grateful to have family and friends along with us today. I wanted to thank all of you for being here in support of this amazing cause and also being here in support of each other. It's the support of others that give us our strength, hope, and encouragement to persevere on our quest to bring out the best child that our child can be, and remind us that we are not alone.”
It's official! TheCaroline Manzo spinoff is full steam ahead! Caroline, Albert and their kids,Albie, Chris and Lauren, will be filming a pilot for Manzo'd With Children. “It’s one crowded house filled with personality, laughter and ham… in both pig and honey-baked forms.”
The show will follow Caroline, the “ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family." Along with the immediate Manzo clan, it will feature Caroline's sister Fran. I had a feeling about that one since she was featured on a previous episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey.
We all had a feeling that Bravo was setting them up for a spinoff all through season 5 – and we were all right! The show isn't a "for sure" thing. Once the pilot is filmed, they'll make a decision whether or not to pick it up for a full series. Manzo'd With Children is just the working title of the potential series.
Let's hope they get a different editing team for their show than the one working on RHONJ right now.
