Vito Scalia


Nothing like the scent of fresh-washed laundry! What’s better than to have your mom do your laundry for you – at the age of 28, no less? This week’s episode of Manzo’d with Children starts with Caroline Manzo tending to her cubs’ (aka Albie and Chris) clothes-folding duties and chatting it up with her hubby Al Manzo. Al thinks the boys will be staying with them for 6 months – MAX! The fact that Caroline is even folding their laundry is code for her never wanting them to leave, IMO. Suddenly, a black tank top, ahem, a black female tank top, is found amongst the basketball mesh shorts and boxers. Caroline wants to barf at the sight of it, but is going to wait for the owner to claim it before she raises hell trying to figure out where it came from. Hint: Albie has a girlfriend. But man, wouldn’t it be kinda fun to meet Chris’ girlfriends once in awhile? 


Welcome Back Manzos!!!  It’s a full house this time around on Manzo’d With Children as Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo have moved back home to save money to start their own business (another business? what about the bar? what about BLK water?).  I’m curious how much money they actually save by living at home.  You take away rent and utilities and groceries that definitely helps.  However, I imagine they are still going out to bars, restaurants and shopping – which is where most of my income went at that age anyway. The key to saving money is actually making money (I’m assuming the Bravo salaries are plentiful) and so far every scene has been the boys lounging around at home like it’s summer vacation.  Maybe the cameras are just capturing the weekends – but do these guys have any job right now??? Even if they are earning money from BLK or the restaurant on the side – that still requires doing some work.  This Manzo business idealism throws me for a loop.  Wanting your children to be their own boss in their early 20s might not be the best idea, Caroline Manzo. There is something to be said for busting your butt for a company, learning all the ropes and then maybe after 5-10 years you can be confident enough to do it independently.  I have a feeling moving home had more to do with the show than saving for their “business ventures”.   Sorry, I had to rant on this topic, it irks me to no end.

Our favorite reality stars were on the prowl this week. 

Ramona Singer let loose on the red carpet at the opening night after party for the musical ‘Bullets Over Broadway’.  Snooki & Jwoww attended the MTV Movie Awards.  Kendall and Kylie Jenner hit up a music festival while sister Kourtney Kardashian made an appearance in Las Vegas (looking like she’s attempting to hide a baby bump..).  Lauren Manzo celebrated her birthday.  Yolanda Foster stepped out with husband David – looking better than ever!  Andy Cohen attended an ASPCA event with his dog while Carole Radizwill and LuAnn de Lesseps hung out at a cocktail party.

Ringling Bros. And Barnum & Bailey Presents

I never thought I'd be so happy to write a post about past (or present) cast members of The Real Housewives of New Jersey!  After weeks of non-stop crazy drama and endless posts about Atlanta and Beverly Hills, I'm thrilled to see these ladies! Yes, you read that right, THRILLED. 

Caroline Manzo and her family and Jacqueline Laurita and her family (including kiddos C.J. and Nicholas) stepped out last night to attend "Ringling Bros." And "Barnum & Bailey" Presents "Legends" at Barclays Center in NYC. 

Along with Chris Laurita, Lauren Manzo, Vito Scalia, Albie Manzo, and Christopher Manzo, former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel also turned out, but sadly without her sweetheart Bryn. 


Reality Star Kim Kardashian celebrates her 33rd Birthday

2013 was quite a year for engagements. Many stars said yes to the ring and started planning big, fancy made-for-TV affairs!

The most exciting part of any engagement is the ring, of course, and these couples did not disappoint! There were diamonds galore: some big, some bigger, and some really, really, really huge! 

Above, Kim Kardashian flaunts her newest engagement ring! 

Mere months after finalizing her divorce from Kris Humphries, the reality star got engaged to Kanye West in a lavish, over-the-top proposal. Tell me: why does Kim always look so glum for the lady who has everything?



On last season of Real Housewives of New Jersey she was acting like Vito Scalia was old news, but now Lauren Manzo can't wait to hustle down that aisle in a big, white dress!

The two recently got engaged and Lauren is suddenly ready to be a Mrs. That wouldn't have anything to do with the Manzo fam finally being offered that spinoff they've been campaigning for, would it? Not. At. All. 

With Manzo'd With Children filming now, planning a wedding and all the drama that comes with it is the perfect segue to attract viewers. But Lauren insists her reason for saying Yes to Vito's proposal (the two have been rumored to be secretly engaged for years, BTW), was that she finally embraced the idea of change. Ok, then. 



Awww… Lauren Manzo and Vito Scalia are finally engaged. Or is it re-engaged? Cause we're pretty sure they've been pitching this engagement storyline attempt for a while now… 

Whatever the case we're happy for the Manzo'd With Children stars! And you know what this means… a TV WEDDING! <swoon> True Fact: I love a wedding. Even a made for TV one. 

Except the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star is now playing coy about whether or not her wedding will actually be televised. Girl, yeah right! On the idea of getting married on TV Lauren tells Radar Online, “There’s always that possibility, and I won’t say it’s out of the question." 



Lauren Manzo is engaged!  The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star announced the news tonight on Instagram.  She shared the above photo of her and fiance Vito Scalia, writing "We're engaged!". 

The Manzo family is currently filming their spinoff Manzo'd With Children, so we're willing to be the cameras caught every minute of the big proposal. 

Lauren reportedly got engaged back in May of 2012.  After we posted the exclusive story, she first confirmed it (even showing off an engagement ring) and then retracted it and said it was completely untrue.  It was believed that Bravo asked her to keep it quiet since the proposal was reportedly filmed for an episode of RHONJ, but that never saw the light of day.
