Longtime fans of the Manzo family, who have followed Caroline and Al Manzo's daughter Lauren Manzo Scalia since the early days of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, were delighted to see her marry Vito Scalia on Manzo'd with Children in 2015. The two then went on to have their first child together, Marchesa "Markie" Scalia, in February 2017. And while we don't see the Manzo family every week on TV anymore, followers have still been able to keep up with the family on social media... and as we all know, social media is open to interpretation.
"Hey, spoiler, Lauren and Vito are still very much married," Caroline stated. "Everybody seems [to ask], '[Are] Lauren and Vito married?' They are very much married. Lauren just doesn't post a lot because she doesn't want to hear your bulls--t. Plain and simple. We deal with a lot of bulls--t; she doesn't want to hear it."
So that answers that. Plus, even though Lauren doesn't post about Vito on social media, we're lucky she still blesses us with the occasional photo of sweet Markie:
And we can still get our Vito fix on other Manzo family members' accounts.
By the way, Caroline also commented on how different parenting is in Lauren and Vito's generation.
"Sometimes I look at Lauren and Vito and I'm like, damn... but you have to realize it's a different time... I think parenting has evolved in such a way that probably I'm considered to be very old-fashioned but I'm cool with that," she said. "I, of course, love watching Lauren as a mom... I think it's an age-old thing where a mother will look at her daughter and say, 'No! That's not the way you do it; that's the way I did it.' But you have to realize that things evolve, and people evolve and traditions and ways of parenting evolve, so she's going to do it her way the same way I did it my way. And she's a very attentive mom and Vito's a great dad and [Markie's] certainly very, very loved, all around, so I think if there was a gauge for a child being blessed and loved, this kid has got it off the charts."
Caroline also remarked on how Markie fits into the fam, calling her "the light of our lives," "the biggest blessing of our lives," and an "old soul." We'd definitely have to agree! Relive Caroline's joy in learning she was becoming a grandma, below.
