Inside Lauren Manzo's Romantic Engagement

Plus: see an up-close photo of her enormous ring!

It's been one day since Vito Scalia popped the question to Lauren Manzo, and the bride-to-be is still brimming with excitement.

"It's been an incredible 24 hours and I am still floating on cloud nine," she tells the Dish. "Vito was to thoughtful about the proposal, down to the smallest detail."

So how did her beau propose? "He told me to close my eyes and when I opened them, he asked me to marry him," she says. "Of course, I said yes! And we both cried tears of pure joy."

The couple weren't alone on their big night. Lauren says her family were waiting right outside "cheering for us! He knew I wanted to be shocked when the moment came, and he definitely accomplished that."

He also accomplished picking out a gorgeous ring. Or, as longtime Manzo family friend Gregg Bennett described on Twitter, a rock that's "the size of a large South American country on a map." Check out an up-close picture of the bling below:


Though Lauren's mom Caroline Manzo has departed from the The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the Manzo family isn't straying far from the Bravo family: they're currently in production for the new pilot Manzo'd With Children.

Are you happy for Vito and Lauren? And what do you think of her engagement ring? Tell us in the comments.
