The sons of RHONJ OG’s Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita recently reunited at a family wedding in California.

Reunited, and it feels so good! Over the weekend, RHONJ alums Albie Manzo, and his brother Chris Manzo reunited with their not-so-little cousin CJ Laurita at a Laurita family wedding in Santa Barbara, CA.

On Instagram, Albie’s soon-to-be wife, Chelsea DeMonaco, shared a photo of Chris, Albie, and CJ with their cousin, Joseph Laurita, as well as their aunt and uncle on her Instagram Story.

This is the first time Chris, Albie, and CJ have been together since the Laurita family moved to the West Coast in 2019. CJ is now 21, while Albie is 37, and Chris is 34.

Jacqueline commented on some pictures from the wedding posted by Chris’ girlfriend, Lia Alessandra, on Instagram.

“You looked Beautiful! ? So funny! Living Laurita Loca was going to be the name of our reality show at one point! I love it! ? perfection!” Jacqueline wrote on Instagram.

RHONJ fans loved seeing Chris, Albie, and CJ back together.

“Nice to see this,” one fan commented. Another wrote: “OMG they’re all grown.”

In July, Albie chatted with the AllAboutTRH podcast, revealing that Jacqueline Lauria, Chris Laurita, and Dina Manzo would NOT be invited to his upcoming wedding. He did say that Jacqueline’s daughter Ashlee Holmes would be attending his wedding. He also gave insight into his current relationship with Jacqueline and Chris and revealed whether or not the door is open for reconciliation.

“I haven’t really spoken to ’em much. I mean, they live out in California,” Albie exclusively told the AllAboutTRH podcast. “I think there’s a lot of stuff really with [the family.] I’m very comfortable with my interactions with everyone. How I’ve handled myself with everyone and how I feel about it. Everyone, I’m a doors open, phones on type of guy, you know, with pretty much any kind of a situation. You know, that relationship that grew apart for several different reasons. But mostly right now, I mean, everyone’s in different spots of the country, so that’s not even something that would logically get rekindled. But like, me and Ashlee aren’t insanely close.”

It is unclear if CJ will be invited to Albie’s wedding.
