Dina Manzo Praises Teresa While Bashing Caroline and Jacqueline

The bitch is back! 

That’s right, Dina “Zen” Manzo is back after being fired during season two. Dina and her hubby, Tommy Manzo, are going through a divorce, she’s dating again and her daughter Lexi is going off to college.

Dina will play the role of Teresa Giudice’s “non-confrontational” BFF. Dina will pretend Teresa didn’t plead guilty to committing felonies, the blind soldier friend who kisses ass with a smile!

She reiterated this fact in the new issue of US Weekly. Dina tells the tabloid:

“She [Teresa] finds relief in our friendship because I’m not asking questions about the case. I don’t give a sh*t about the details. I care about her and her family. When we talk, it’s, What are the kids doing? Let’s go have lunch.”

Things have been chilly between Dina and her family for years after she cut ties with the entire cast—along with her sister Caroline Manzo, her brother, Chris Laurita and sister-in-law, Jacqueline Laurita. Caroline Manzo blamed their rift on Teresa Giudice and Dina blames reality TV. 

“I didn’t get anyone fired,” the reality star, 43, shares exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. “One of my first questions for the producers when I was invited back was, ‘You’re not getting rid of anyone because of me, right?’ And they said, ‘Absolutely not.'”
“Other than my daughter [Lexi, 18]—we share a bond that nothing can break—I will never do a reality show with family ever again,” Dina, who’s separated from husband Tommy Manzo, tells Us. “It’s just not a healthy environment.”

    I started watching just when Teresa threw the table over. I don’t know much about her, but she looks sneaky and bitchy to me. And, (don’t hate me) I happen to be one of the few people who like Caroline. Now, I’m moving out of the country to some undisclosed place…….hehe 😉

    Happy Thursday one and all!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Good morning, Nan. She is sneaky and bitchy, but pretends to be spiritual. She is a huge phony. And I will join you in your undisclosed location since I like Carolline, too.

      • nan/4

        Oh good! Your cocktail awaits! 😉

    • SDC

      LOVE Caroline!

      • nan/4

        Party of three! How about some “Champs?” lol Welcome to “We Like Caroline Island.” It’s a pleasure to have you join us, SDC. 😉 Nice to meet you, btw.

        Have a nice evening! 🙂

        • SDC

          Nice to meet you too! Sorry for the late reply!

  • TartLemon

    Dina is a POS. If it was not a HUGE payday for her, Teresa would not be worthy of her time.

    • SAMRA1116

      Can’t wait until her n Teresa get into. Teresa wants complete loyalty

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yes, by the end of the season Dina will be off Teresa and buddy with Melissa.

        • SAMRA1116

          That would be great—Teresa really is no one friend —-she will lie to the end. In touch articles—Jackie asked if it’s true—tre lied again.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I hope Bravo runs a marathon before the premiere. I’d like to see that “ambush on the deck” episode again, now that we know what we know about all the fraud. Jac was asking questions that needed to be asked, after all.

    • Exactly and anyone with common sense can see that. Dina really loathes Teresa and used her to get back on the show.

  • italiano bambino

    I can’t wait for this person to get backlash NOONE TO BLAME but her own zen ass

  • nan/4

    Can someone bring me up to speed? I know about the forged signature, and that she has nothing to do with her brother, sister, and SIL, and that she walked around all zen-like, but I started watching just around the time she left. What happened with her?

    Thanks!

    • nan/4

      Too broad of a question? Okay. Nevermind….. :-/

      • WestCoastFeed

        I was not paying much attention when she left, but since then she has claimed that the show had nothing to do with her rift with Caroline.

        • nan/4

          I wonder what the rift was about? Whatever it was estranged her from her brother and Jacqueline as well. Hmm….

    • italiano bambino

      She was to boring. Jk

      • nan/4

        Oh, okey dokey. Thanks for the info. lol

  • SAMRA1116

    Oh Dina you tried to run away like a child, Jackie was telling the TRUTH..
    Won’t be watching as usual—the recaps are better
    Um that’s the same sister that gave you somewhere to stay, when you were down and out,
    family have this thing, that I don’t need you until I call you. Atleast in your eyes, your acting like the baby, you are. Smh

    • italiano bambino

      Jacqueline calling her out sure show the true Dina

      • SAMRA1116

        IKR

        • nan/4

          Mornin’ Samra! Hope you’re well…. May I ask, called her out on what? I remember some big issue with a book that Danielle(? )wrote, Did it have something to do with that?

          • SAMRA1116

            Dina and Caroline both were talking about the book, then Caroline called Jackie over. It was a big mess at the dinner party from hell. Jackie sat by her husband Chris (Dina’s brother) and call dina a liar. She knew all about it —

          • nan/4

            Ahh…….thanks, but I don’t get it. I’ll have to watch the DVD when she was on the show.

            Take good care!

          • SAMRA1116

            Caroline took all the blame for the book being shown and discussed.
            Dina just sat there like a child—Jackie was pissed because Dina let others take the blame. Then the forged documents, she wanted Caroline n jackie to quit also, they didn’t and it’s been a rift since then.

          • nan/4

            Oh, I get it now!!! Thanks honey! 🙂

          • SAMRA1116

            Oh forget to say she wanted Jackie to LIE and say, Dina knew nothing.
            You need to see that dinner party from hell, Danielle put that book on the table, and from there, it was downhill for the ” thick as thieves sisters”. Caroline protected Dina, Caroline did say she introduced the book to Dina and a few others, but pretta ass Dina was running like a trapped child. LMAO

          • RonnieIsBack

            BOOM!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Samra! Something deep must have went down between Dina and some of her siblings in order for her to still not be speaking to them after all this time.

      • SAMRA1116

        ITA but with family you can’t hold on to everything, we have all been disappointed by family —I come from a large family, I’m the youngest, but have what they others lack —they call me for everything.. But we are brutally honest with each other, tell each other off, but then in the next breathe we laughing. We don’t hold grudges—we were told”You’re lucky to have each other. Um you pick your friends and pick shitty friends,but family will be there

        • Marsbars09

          Great analogy, Samra. I wish I could be that way with my family.

          • SAMRA1116

            You can Mars, my sister was addicted to the white powder, but I still loved her, had to go and get her, from places. But she knew not to bring none of that shit to my house. She was insufferable at times, I would just tell her, we’ll talk when you not high. Hunni I had no embarrassment for her,that was her life. But the other side of the coin, she was so sweet. (RIP). She would say I like the high. The white lady is calling. Rehab only last as long as you are willing to quit doing coke. But I never once disowned her, she was a lost soul and needed the rush. IMO

          • Starside

            I’m so sorry about the loss of your sister. You sound like a very wonderful, good hearted strong person. Anyone would be lucky to have a sister like you.

          • SAMRA1116

            Thank you —my sister was so highly intelligent, with 9 degrees
            2 PHD’s 3 Master n a doctoral… She just had that other side, she could not control. I was lucky to have her, the other side of her was so beautiful and she was also beautiful, but never came to terms with
            made her start in the first place.

          • Starside

            I am sure she was a wonderful beautiful person. Some people just have their demons that they cannot control through no fault of their own. It does not define them as a person. My cousin took his own life at a young age because of his demons but thats not how I define or remember him. Like your sister, he was a kind and beautiful soul gone too soon. All we can do is love them while they are here.

          • SAMRA1116

            So true—love each other regardless of of shortcomings.
            We all have them, we just chose another way to handle our problems

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            Sorry to hear about that. It is tragic.

          • SAMRA1116

            Thank you

          • Aw Samra….I just saw this. I’m so sorry honey. May your sister RIP.

          • SAMRA1116

            Too much education n demons. Thank you
            she is

  • nan/4

    This is totally OT (sorry Doc!) but I’m watching…..well, I muted it, the Kartrashians. They are showing Kimmy from a few years back. Her butt was small! Okay, a LOT smaller then it is now. Who does she think that she’s kidding? She must have balloons in there! How the heck can she sit on a fake butt? Sorry for rambling….. I’m done now. Thanks for playing along! 😉

    • SAMRA1116

      Nan that ass so big it looks like she’s always ready to crap
      It’s odd and disgusting.
      Kim messed up the natural look that was attractive.
      Her face n body has changed, but not for the good of it

      • nan/4

        I must agree. Her pre-balloon butt was much nicer. She had a major nose job too!

        • SAMRA1116

          She ruined her natural looks, her butt was big enough, now she loos deformed. IMO

          • nan/4

            I agree.

  • WestCoastFeed

    The Manzos are all in Texas filming for their spin-off show. I think they are in Austin. but not sure about that. Is there anything special going on in the area that they might be involved in?

    • I saw that and Caroline’s tweet. They’re a nice family and I’m glad Al is taking a break from the Brownstone to participate.

      • Vince Foster, Jr.

        I just can’t understand why the boys aren’t working at the brownstone because they don’t seem to be able to support themselves without Albert’s help. What is this, their tenth business venture?

  • italiano bambino

    I’m back BITCHES

    • WestCoastFeed

      That cat is even more disgusting that the Vanderpump dog that is allowed to eat and drink at the dinner table.

      • italiano bambino

        I found tge whole eating on the table nasty too. Not cute at all

    • RonnieIsBack

      hehehheehehh dayum!

  • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

    Hi y’all, and this is off topic (OT),

    I haven’t been as prolific lately with my comments but…

    Did anybody else notice that on the North Jersey site, they gave the Giudice grandfather passing about as much attention as it should have been given…one sentence at the end of an article about Joe’s upcoming ID theft court appearance for July 14th.

    That’s it…one sentence at the very end of the article on June 20th.

    • SAMRA1116

      I’m sure it was in the obituary section of the paper—

      • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

        Oh yeah, of course.
        But what I find interesting about North Jersey giving it only one sentence, is that somehow New Jersey folks don’t see this issue as nearly as important as ROL and other gossip media sites have.
        It seems that NJ gave it as much notoriety as was actually warranted, not that much.

        • Hotdog21

          Because it has nothing to do with any of the cases against the Giudices. Sounds more like responsible reporting from a reputable paper vs the crap ROL spews.

          • AATT’s did a very respectful treatment, despite the lies some people enjoy spreading.
            http://www.allaboutthetea.com/2014/06/23/frank-giudice-funeral-arrangements-obituary-1951-2014/

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            Are are talking about me? Isn’t AATT run by commies?

          • Damn! You caught me red handed!

          • Hotdog21

            I’m sure they did, I don’t recall reading it but the articles I’ve read on AATT for the most part have been good. It’s usually the comments that get a little out of hand but that is true for all blogs. I was just commenting that the NJ site is more of a newspaper rather than an entertainment blog so the fact that they only made a one line comment regarding the Sr Guidice passing wasn’t surprising to me.

          • Hey Hotdog! Hope you’re well. I agree about the newspaper site’s coverage. They wouldn’t make it a full page spread like an entertainment blog would. Totally agree.

          • Hotdog21

            Hiya Doc!! I am well and wishing you a wonderful 4th of July weekend!!!

          • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

            I agree with you.

            Thanks for your reply.

  • Bonita Gee

    I CAN’T WAIT till RHONJ Premier airs……. I WON’T MISS the other Manzos. Wasn’t Joe and Teresa’s sentencing date set back to September 23rd because of Joe’s Dad’s death???

  • RonnieIsBack

    Gonzo needs to let it go…nobody gives a damn about her boring life….

    I can’t stand her. She has no visible means of support and likes living high on the hog (tommy).
