"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Lauren Manzo is engaged!
Lauren, who is the daughter of Caroline Manzo (and a show regular), announced Tuesday (Nov. 12) that she is engaged to marry her longtime boyfriend, Vito Scalia.
"I'm so incredibly happy!!" she told Us Weekly about the engagement. "I'm in shock. I'm so excited to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. Well he was my brothers' best friend first, but I stole him!"
Scalia proposed to the 25-year-old reality star and makeup artist with a sizable diamond ring, which she wasn't afraid to flash in photos later posted to her Twitter account.

Caroline, who announced that she will not be returning to RHONJ for Season 6 of the Bravo show, took to her website to offer her daughter some more congratulations. "My baby is engaged!!!" she wrote.
Fans still might get a closer look at the Manzo engagement on the small screen, however. Last month, the family started production on a pilot for Bravo, called "Manzo'd With Children," that could be made into a regular series.
Caroline was into the idea when asked about possibly televising her daughter's wedding during an interview with TV Guide over the summer.
"There are a lot of things I keep to myself because it's important to maintain that sense of family outside of the show," she told TV Guide. "It's ultimately Lauren and Vito's decision, but to not show that is kind of not fair. You'd probably see just a little of it to get a flavor of it. I think the fans deserve that."
