The Manzo family helped launch The Real Housewives of New Jersey and were given a spinoff.
Bravo fans followed Caroline Manzo’s children, Albie, Chris, and Lauren, through their teen years and beyond.
Lauren and Vito met through her older brother, Albie. The men were best friends and college roommates.
The two welcomed a daughter, Marchesa (Markie), two years into their marriage.
Speculation has grown that there was trouble in paradise between Lauren and Vito,
And now it’s been confirmed the couple is divorcing after eight years of marriage.
Lauren Manzo confirms split after eight years of marriage
There was plenty of buzz surrounding Lauren Manzo and Vito Scalia’s relationship initially. After all, he was Albie’s best friend.
However, the Manzo family embraced it, and Lauran and Vito married.
The couple has been out of the spotlight for several years, with Lauren only recently joining TikTok and growing a following. They kept their marriage private and raised their little girl off social media to allow her privacy.
Lauren took to TikTok to address the news about her split from Vito, revealing their marriage had been done for “a very long time.”
She attempted to dodge questions about why she wasn’t wearing a ring for months. At the same time, that wasn’t a huge sign of a split, as some men and women don’t wear their wedding bands for different reasons.
During her comments about the dissolution of her marriage, she said they didn’t feel they needed to make a public statement because they were no longer on reality TV. It had been seven years, and they wanted to protect their daughter through all of this.
Lauren turned the comments off on the share, making her point clear. She only addressed the split because it was making headlines when Vito Scalia officially filed for divorce.
The former The Real Housewives of New Jersey personality had to take time away from her brother’s wedding week to address the situation in hopes the buzz would die down enough and the comments on social media would cease.
Lauren Manzo split overshadowing Albie Manzo’s wedding?
The Manzo family is in Italy for Albie Manzo’s wedding week.
Lauren Manzo and Vito Scalia’s split is making headlines instead of Albie and his bride.
One of the most significant issues is that Manzo fans hoped to spot Vito in Italy with the family. After all, he was Albie’s best friend before he was Lauren’s husband.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case. It seems only Lauren is in Italy with the family.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey is currently on hiatus.
