Lauren Scalia (formerly Manzo) is silencing critics of her slimmed-down appearance, one Italian sandwich at a time.

The daughter of Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Caroline Manzo has been posting TikTok videos of herself eating burgers, mashed potatoes, and deli sandwiches as she replies to commenters who criticize her looks.

“Oh crap I didn’t know who this was. Sad….,” one commenter wrote in reply to Manzo’s appearance.

Around a mouthful of food, Manzo replied, “This person posted this on a video saying they didn’t know it was me, and that it’s sad. What’s sad? I’ll tell you what’s sad. That mayo in the corner of my f—ing mouth.”

Last May, Manzo, 35, had revealed that she’d turned to a functional medicine doctor, who put her on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. The former Bravo personality said she lost 50 lbs. on the new diet but “couldn’t lose any more.”

Then, with the help of Mounjaro — an FDA-approved prescription medication for people with type 2 diabetes — she was able to lose an additional 30 lbs.

Mounjaro a brand name for tirzepatide, which has been proven to be highly effective for weight loss by reducing appetite and improving how the body breaks down sugar and fat. Mounjaro is similar to Ozempic — a brand name for semaglutide — which works in the brain to impact satiety, and has been trending in Hollywood circles for weight loss.

The Manzo’d with Children star explained that she decided to actively lose weight after she was “considered morbidly obese” at 280 lbs., which led to mental health struggles.

And now, she says, “If I were my [current] weight my whole life, nobody would question how much I weigh right now. I don’t look sick. I even gained a couple of lbs.”

She continued to address the negative comment, asking “Is it saying, is it sad that I’m finally at a healthy weight? I’m just confused. I’m so sick of these comments. It makes no sense. I’m 5’3″ and 115 lbs.,” said Manzo.

According to the National Institute of Health’s BMI chart, 115 lbs. is a “healthy” weight for someone 5’3″.

And now, she says, “the only thing I need to do to make myself healthier is to build muscle, which I admit that I’m too lazy to do.”

“As long as I feel good, I’m okay. I’m fine. This isn’t sad. I just ate a ciabatta sandwich with a bunch of deli meat on it, a load of mayonnaise and Fritos. I’m fine. Nothing sad here.”

Manzo continued to address her critics on TikTok in true New Jersey style. When one commenter called her “pathetic,” Manzo addressed her critic by name.

“Guys, Rose is too old to be talking to people like this,” she said while spearing some chicken and mashed potatoes. “I know you guys say, why do I acknowledge it? If they feel like they can go at me for s—t like that, then I feel like I should be able to come back at them.”
