Caroline Manzo’s son Albie Manzo is getting married and he is already starting to put his wedding guest list together.
The former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star has been at odds with her sister, Dina Manzo, for years. The family has also lost touch with Chris Laurita and his wife, Jacqueline, who also used to be on the Bravo franchise.
On the July 2, 2023, episode of the “AllAboutTRH” podcast, Albie Manzo confirmed that the family has yet to repair those broken bonds and that he will not be inviting Dina Manzo or the Lauritas to his wedding.

Albie Manzo Is Not in Touch With His Mother’s Sister & Brother
During his time on the “AllAboutTRH” podcast, Albie admitted that his Relationship with the Lauritas isn’t what it used to be.
When asked if Jacqueline Laurita would be invited to his wedding, Albie Manzo answered, “no.” However, he did say that her daughter, Ashlee Holmes,” will be there as the two are incredibly close.
“I haven’t really spoken to them much,” Albie Manzo said of his aunt and uncle (the Lauritas), who currently live in California. “That’s a relationship that grew apart for several different reasons, but mostly, right now, everyone’s in different spots of the country,” he continued.
At one point in time, Albie Manzo was very close to his uncle Chris Laurita. In fact, the two went into business together, co-founding BLK Water nearly a decade ago. After Jacqueline Laurita left RHONJ, she and Chris moved to Las Vegas, and it seems like the family lost touch over the years since.
As for Caroline Manzo’s other sister, Dina Manzo, she won’t be invited to her nephew’s wedding, either. Neither will her daughter, Lexi, who is Albie Manzo’s first cousin.
“My aunt Dina lived with us. We had a very brother-sister-like relationship when she was living there,” he explained, adding that he still loves Lexi, despite what may be going on behind-the-scenes within their family. They have continued to grow apart, however.
