Caroline Manzo has always been clear about one thing: even though she and younger sister Dina Manzo have been at odds for the past few years, they will always be family and always be there for each other. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. While speaking exclusively with Wetpaint Entertainment, Caroline's daughter Lauren Manzo – who recently got engaged to longtime boyfriend Vito Scalia and is currently planning their wedding – made it clear that no one in her family would be excluded from the guest list under any circumstances.
In fact, after saying “Yes!” to Vito’s proposal, Lauren couldn’t wait to share the news with her cousin and Dina’s daughter, Lexie. “One of the very first people I texted was Lexie,” Lauren confirms to Wetpaint Entertainment. “I love Lexie more than anything and always want to be close to her.”
As for the rift with Dina, Lauren had this to say: “At the end of the day, we’re still family. It’s a sensitive subject these days, but I’ll always do the right thing. My mom told me to always take the high road and I will. So of course I’ll invite my Aunt Dina. I’m not sure if she will come, but she will definitely be invited."
Good to know that if Lauren’s learned anything from her mom, it’s that family comes first!
