Real Housewives of New Jersey

Was Lauren Manzo and Vito Scalia’s Engagement Filmed for Reality TV? — Exclusive

Lauren Manzo is headed to the altar! The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star got engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Vito Scalia, on November 12. Her proud mother, Caroline Manzo, and the rest of her family immediately took to Twitter to gush about the good news.

We’ve already seen a flurry of photos documenting the big event. But given how often cameras follow this family around, we had to wonder: Was Vito's proposal filmed for reality TV? Caroline and her family left RHoNJ at the end of this season, but they’ve been very busy the past months filming for their Bravo spin-off show, Manzo’d With Children.

However, we were under the impression that filming for the first season of Manzo’d With Children had already come to a close. So what’s the deal? Will Bravo viewers be able to see Vito get down on one knee and ask Lauren to be his wife?

Unfortunately, it looks like they will not. A source close to the situation tells Wetpaint Entertainment that camera crews were not filming at the time of the proposal.

However, we're hopeful that if Manzo’d With Children ends up getting renewed for Season 2, we very well might get to watch an engaged Lauren plan her wedding. And we bet mama Caroline will have plenty of opinions and ideas when it comes to that!
