Lauren Manzo and her fiancé, Vito Scalia are one step closer to living happily ever after!

On Friday, the pair, who got engaged on November 12, were honored lavishly with an engagement party that took place at the Brownstone, the Manzo family business.

The daughter of former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo and owner of Cafface Beauty Bar, who is currently filming the family spin-off show Manzo’d With Children, beamed with excitement as she entertained her guests.

The guest list included: Melissa and Joey Gorga,  Kathy and Rich Wakile and of course Jacqueline & Chris Laurita (her aunt and uncle) but no sightings of Teresa Giudice. I’m assuming she was told she would not be allowed to peddle her books for cash and declined the invitation.

Lauren, who has loss a lot of weight, wore a short cream cocktail dress and Vito worked a dark colored suit. Gourmet appetizers were served and the finest champagne flowed all night.

Lauren and Vito mingled with their guests separately and together throughout the night,” an insider tells All About The Tea.  The party looked like it was a  fun celebration.  Check out the photos posted on social media below:

    Best wishes to Vito and Lauren as they prepare to walk down the aisle.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Two happy housewives stories in one day!!! Kandi’s marriage and Lauren’s engagement. What a refreshing change. And topping it all off, Teresa’s latest commercial!!! It is Super Saturday today at AATT.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi WCF! I agree we have genuinely good news to share involving Kandi and Lauren. However, Tre doesn’t deserve to be mentioned with such blessed news. Her stuff needs to be kept separate.

    • So true, West. A much needed distraction to all the crime and drama that surrounds these housewives!

  • WestCoastFeed

    And of course Teresa wasn’t there. These party goers are only 1/16th Italian while Teresa in old school, straight off the banana boat Eyetalian.

    • Marsbars09

      That’s another person that reeks of superiority. Why does Tre think she’s better because she is 100% authentic Italiano? Forget her ethnicity. She has a cold, black heart, is a habitual criminal, a convicted felon, has no ethics or morals, and could care less about her fellow man.
      I think it’s a blessing that someone of her character wasn’t invited to such a special event. She probably would have sucked the life right out of the room.

  • Marsbars09

    Nice photos of everyone. I especially like the one with Caro’s mother and CJ. I would have liked to have seen photos of Vito’s family. Who is that handsome man photoed with Jac? Jac and Mel need to lay off the botox. The Wakile kids are really good looking.

    • The Wakile kids are too cute for words. They are both growing into healthy happy balanced adults. Victoria will graduate soon and become a nurse. Kathy and Richie did a great job! Bravo needs to give them a spin-off show.

      • Marsbars09

        Nah, the kids don’t need to be on a reality show. They need to focus on their education and make REAL lives for themselves, unlike some of the other NJ adult kids.
        Doc, the man posing with Jac looks very familiar. I think he’s an actor. Do you know who he is?

        • WestCoastFeed

          I think he’s the one Jac called “Uncle Donny.” Another Laurita brother, or married to a Laurita sister? I wish lolag1 were here. She knew who all the Lauritas were and could identify every one of those cousins.

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    Didn’t Lauren get weight loss surgery ?

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yes, she had both lap-band surgery and a breast reduction. She really has lost a lot of weight.

      • murlut

        She looks really good. I hear in an article somewhere she had to pass a test for BMI and it took her 6 months of counseling before she could even have the surgery. She has done very well.

        • Vince Foster, Jr.

          I really didn’t think she was a canidate for the surgery, she wasn’t morbidly obese.

          • WestCoastFeed

            She was quite heavy, though. She’s like 5’2″ and got to over 180 lbs.

          • hardtimz

            Dang did she really weigh that much? Wow I got that large because I was pregnant and ate everything you put in front of me…OY! She probably needed if she’s that short, I’m not much taller.

          • murlut

            She was very heavy, I bet she weighed between 200 and 220 but the whole thing is the BMI

    • LOL!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Melissa tweeted a pic today of herself and Nicole Napolitano, in swim wear. I recognize Melissa’s suit, I think it’s from her trip to Boca. The two are obviously enjoying each other’s company. So much for a storyline featuring newbies vs oldies.

  • murlut

    I am sure Teresa the pending JAILBIRD wasn’t invited. Who would want her and the monster children around. It would have been much better of a party without her there.

    • Marsbars09

      I couldn’t agree with you more, murlut. Tre would have sucked the life right out of that party.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Christopher Manzo’s girlfriend, Samantha Granatell was there too. She is not Kim G’s daughter, but is one of the Franklin Lakes Granatells.

    • Marsbars09

      Kim G. lives in Franklin Lakes. Are there different factions of Granatells?

      • WestCoastFeed

        I guess most of them do live in Franklin Lakes. Plus they have homes in Florida.

  • hardtimz

    I thought for certain now that Lauren have some weight that old Vito wouldn’t be good enough…dang crow sure don’t taste good…YUKE!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Vito is slimming down, too.

      • hardtimz

        Yea it kinda looks like he’s drop a few, he had a bit of a gut.

  • Bryan

    RUN VITO RUN!!!!!!

    • And don’t look back……LOL

  • SAMRA1116

    Good for her, hope she’s happy.
    Um that weight loss surgery for less than 40-50 pounds – is just plain LAZY—u still have to change your eating habits. Smh
    Vito’s looking better.

    • Newchild

      She looks really good! But you are correct…she could have lost that weight on her own…..Mommy and Daddy did the surgery, so why not her??? Lazy ass family……I worked with a lazy girl that did the same….hugh weight loss (like 100lbs.) , then went on to have excess skin/tummy tuck job, boobs had to be lifted and facial plastic surgery!!!!!!!!! Her health insurance paid for everything except for the face. After taking FMLA for 3mos. to re-coop (’cause this was a health issue = lazy ass) she was in the bathroom puking……admitted she couldn’t control her eating. She kept trying to eat the same amt. of food pre-surgery and several times a wk. was puking in the ladies room. Thought you had to get counseling before surgery…been several yrs. since I left & I wonder what she looks like today.

      • SAMRA1116

        lol — it’s still disgusting, when one is to lazy, to eat right n exercise.
        Ugh everyone looking for a quick fix, for a life long problem…
        LAZY is right besides u everyone day. Get some disciple in your life, self control is the key, to many things. Imo

      • Sick of Stupid People

        YOU stupid moron … you have no idea why she had the surgery …. you are lazy yourself so you just figure everyone who has that surgery must be lazy too … well, bozo, you are so wrong. But nothing will convince you so just go on shooting your mouth off about things you know nothing about and let everyone know what a jerk you really are. Carry on ………….
