Lauren Manzo is drawing a line in the sand. The RHONJ alum makes it clear that she will not tolerate questions and comments about her marriage.
Over the weekend, the Manzo family attended a family wedding at The Brownstone. Lauren and her family posted photos from the day on their Instagram pages.
Lauren Manzo posted several photos of her and her daughter, Marchesa “Markie” Scalia; however, Vito was noticeably missing from any of the photos.
Perhaps Vito was at the wedding but is camera shy? Or maybe he had to work? Or maybe there’s something more going on. To be honest, we don’t know.
Either way, that didn’t stop some Bravo fans from questioning the state of Lauren and Vito’s marriage in the comment section of Lauren’s post.
One fan commented:
“I know it’s her life, but her family has chosen to be in the spotlight over and over, so it’s weird that they won’t say she’s divorced. It’s been [speculated] for years at this point. Why is it so hush-hush? The actual wedding was filmed, soooo why not talk about it?”
Another fan agreed, writing:
“I agree. If you’re divorced, just say it. What’s the shame in not admitting it? She never wears her wedding ring, either. I get she wants private, but she also put her personal business out there while on the show and filmed her wedding. Just come clean already; I’d admire her more if she did.”
Well, Lauren was NOT happy with the comments about the status of her marriage to Vito.
The former Real Housewives of New Jersey stapled clapped back in the comment section of her post.
“I haven’t been on tv in 7 years…I’m allowed to choose to keep aspects of my life private, especially after having a child. If you don’t like it, then stay away from my page. It’s very simple.”
The 35-year-old then disabled the comments on her Instagram post.
Lauren and Vito celebrated their eight-year in July after tying the knot in July 2015. The couple began dating in 2009 after knowing each other for four years. The two met thanks to Lauren’s older brother, Albie Manzo, who is Vito’s best friend and college roommate.
Back in March, Lauren gave fans Bravo fans a rare glimpse into family life with her husband Vito. She shared a snap of her, Vito, and their daughter Markie on her Instagram Story as they celebrated Vito’s 36th birthday.
While fans can only see Vito’s arm and shirt in the post, it’s the first sighting of him on Lauren’s social media in many years.
At the time, AllAboutTRH confirmed that Lauren and Vito are still happily married but chose to keep their marriage and the majority of their family life very private. AllAboutTRH can neither confirm nor deny recent claims about the status of Lauren and Vito’s marriage.
Filming for season 14 of RHONJ will reportedly kick off in August.
