Lauren Manzo may be having a change of heart only days after declaring that she would no longer post photos of her daughter Markie on Instagram.
Days after vowing that she and her family would no longer post photos of Markie on Instagram, Lauren did just that in honor of her father, Albert Manzo’s 60th birthday.
“Happy 60th Birthday, Daddy! ?? Thank you for being the best father and pop pop in the world. I thank god every day for making me your little girl ?? I love you forever!” Lauren captioned a group of photos of her and Markie with Albert on Instagram.
The first photo in Lauren’s post is a childhood photo of her and her dad. However, as you scroll through the post, there’s not one but two pictures of Markie and her pop-pop.
Lauren’s mom and former RHONJ star Caroline Manzo also posted photos of Markie in honor of Albert’s 60th.
If you’re a little lost and wondering what’s all the drama – let me explain.
Last week, Lauren and Caroline were attacked by Instagram trolls for their quarantine living situation. This drama started after Caroline posted an innocent picture of Markie watching the Trolls movie at her Franklin Lakes home.
While the photo received praise from many, it also drew its fair share of critics.
A select few “fans” questioned where Lauren was and why Markie was at Caroline’s house when she should be home during the current quarantine.
“Just curious. If everyone is supposed to be staying home, why are you having your granddaughter over all the time? I thought your daughter’s salon would be closed. Are you all staying at your house together?” one fan questioned.
Another wrote, “Do they live with you, or is NJ not on lockdown?”
Caroline went on to explain her family’s current quarantine situation after being bombarded with “unbelievable” questions and accusations.
Lauren also addressed the drama writing, “It’s insanity that people assume that I’m not here with her because I’m not in the photo. Are people really that dumb???? We are quarantined here. It’s unreal. Everyone just stop.”
She then warned, “And if the bullshit doesn’t stop, we are not going to allow anyone in my family to post our daughter anymore.”
“It’s getting really f–king annoying. So mind your business and enjoy the cute kid or don’t see her anymore. It’s that simple,” Lauren added.
However, the hate didn’t stop, and that’s when Lauren announced that she and her family would no longer be posting photos of Markie.
“Since so many of you are absolutely insane, mean, and don’t know how to mind your own f–king business…we will no longer be posting photos of Markie on our Instagrams. This includes my extended family on their Instagrams too. Thanks for f–king it up for everyone else,” Lauren wrote on her Instagram story.
Now it seems Lauren may have changed her mind about posting Markie, but in all honesty, I think it was just a one-off because it was Albert’s birthday.
