No relationship is without its issues and public speculations, especially if you are in the limelight. The case is no different for the Scalias. In January 2018, there were divorce rumors which Vito shot down by saying that they are perfect. He explained that Lauren does not post photos of him simply because they don’t want to put their relationship on social media.
Lauren Manzo came to the limelight when starring in Manzo’d with Children together with her mother, father and 2 brothers. The show whose premiere was on October 5, 2014, was announced it would not return for the fourth season in February 2017, just after the birth of Lauren’s daughter.

Lauren had initially owned Cafface, a beauty bar in Franklin Lakes which she had opened in 2012 and closed in 2016. She later opened Full Blown in Wayne, a beauty and blow-dry bar and became influencer for Wallpics.com in May 2016. Well, she preferred to call it relocation since Wayne and Franklin Lakes are not far off. However, in July 2017, Lauren’s hair salon in Westchester, Fullblown, was said to have caught fire due to an electrical fault. It is said that all who were in the salon were fine except some damage that the salon suffered. However, customers were given the option to reschedule their appointments, meaning the salon was set to reopen soon.
