Jacqueline Laurita Exposes Text Messages Proving Dina Manzo Tried To Turn The RHONJ Cast Against Her

It looks like Miss Zen or Bust, Dina Manzo is at it again, and it appears as if she has gained some cohorts along the way. Just one day after “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star’s niece and makeup artist, Ashlee Holmes, called her out for allegedly sabotaging her work during a RHONJ reunion gig, more tea is being spilled revealing Dina’s behind the scenes manipulation.

Dina has been tirelessly working to keep fellow cast member, and sister in law, Jacqueline Laurita shut out the ‘Housewives’ loop, and twins Nicole and TereSSa are now being exposed as players in Dina’s game. It all went down on Twitter when Jacqueline shared a text from Nicole, who revealed that Dina did indeed target her to join the ‘Freeze Out Jacqueline Club.’ The tweet captioned, “I don’t lie. Nicole DID tell me that in person(among other things) then said she’d clear it up at reunion, & text me,” along with the following photo of the text message from Nicole.

This was after Nicole’s twin sister TereSSa denied that any such information had come from Nicole. While Dina apparently remarked to Nicole that Jacqueline was ‘crazy’, Jacqueline’s story is staying consistent, and Dina is the one emerging as the manipulative scoundrel here. Not lookin’ so zen, Dina! Unfortunately for the twins…they are being exposed as liars right along with her. TereSSa declared she and her sister’s position when responding to a follower on Twitter.

Jim Marchese was the first to accuse Dina of working to sway the cast against Jacqueline, and predicted that she was probably up to no good. Jim told RumorFix back at the beginning of the season that Dina had already approached him and his wife with a deal to freeze Jacqueline out, with the promise of tipping off the couple with any potential drama involving them.
 “Dina attempted to make a similar pact with us. We declined, which explains her venom toward me so early on in the season. It’s logical she did that with everyone.”
Apparently the twins were on Dina’s list next, and unlike the Marchese’s, it appears that they chose to take the bait. “Crazy” Jacqueline isn’t looking so crazy after all!

  • WestCoastFeed

    I like Jac, and mostly because I know she tells the truth. I get impatient with her for her immature tweeting, but always trust her integrity.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Agreed. Jacqs dosn’t lie..she drinks..but she doesn’t lie.

      • Ahahahaha!!!!! Ronnie you’re da best!!

      • MorningYawn

        They all drink! Jac just wears her heart on her sleeve.

    • True, she’s not a liar but like Ronnie said she may like the drinks. LMAO!

  • September24

    Who boasts that no-one likes them? Jac does and offers up the proof.

    • twifan2

      I would consider NOT being liked by Deenzer a great accomplishment! 🙂

  • twifan2

    Has anyone heard the ‘rumors’ that Bravo is thinking of making Jax & Kathy Full Time housewives & Dina & Melissa Friends of housewives?

    • Dave

      That would be a wise choice. Dina and Melissa are like dead fish.

      • twifan2

        They both were background dead weight! imo. 🙂

        • Dave

          Dead stinking fishes !!

          • twifan2

            uuummmm Jerk fish, beer-I’m there! 🙂

          • Dave

            Now you’re talking.

          • Bwahahahaha! Hi Dave!

  • Dave

    Jacqueline seems like a nice person but she should stay away from Twitter. She’s always exposing what people tell her or text her in confidence.

    • twifan2

      If it’s on Twit then it’s not in confidence, Dave.

      • Dave

        Nicole text Jacqueline in confidence, she didn’t tell her on Twitter.

        • twifan2

          Oh that one.
          They should know then that it’s not going to be in confidence when people call you ‘crazy, liar’. Jax had to ‘defend’ herself.
          Besides, Nicole needs another reason to drink, Teresus needs a story line. AND Deenzer needs a job!

          • RealitytvJunkie

            Hi Twifan. That’s right. I know if I was being accused of those things I would defend myself also. Jac did what she had to do.

          • twifan2

            Hi Hi RealityJunkie! 🙂
            Especially with Deenzer trying to lead the ‘In Crowd’ pack?!
            I HAD to laugh at her when she made that remark about Bobby wanting to be in the ‘cool kids’ group’! 😀

          • RealitytvJunkie

            That was a pisser. She does seem to think very highly of herself and put down others. It was obvious she thought she was coming back to save a sinking ship but instead she ended up being the anchor.

          • twifan2

            She was just so high school-ish!
            But then again look at the group she was with… 😀

          • Yup!!! She’s soooooo full of herself. It’s sickening to watch.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Hi AATT family. Great blog, Beach. Jacqueline is the most mature and level headed of the bunch. She’s a loyal friend and loves her family. Glad she’s back on RHONJ.

    • Hi RTvJunkie!! I do believe Jac is a good person but I just wished she would stop exposing things people confide in her.

    • Meadow

      I cant believe what I just read! Mature, level headed….omg!

  • Donna Lee King

    Lesson to be learned here…NEVER ever trust Jac with a secret. She would never be a friend of mine.

    • WestCoastFeed

      But isn’t this something that is going to be a topic of discussion on Sunday’s episode? Nicole telling Jac that she had been told the Jac is crazy?

      • Hi West. Yes, it will be shown on Sunday’s episode but why did Jax have to put her texts on Twitter. That’s my only beef.

        • WestCoastFeed

          According to the story above, Nicole told Jac that she would clear it up and the reunion and text her. Well it didn’t come up at the reunion, but she did text Jac. I don’t see any breach of confidence here at all.

          • What do you mean? How do you know it didn’t come up at the reunion? And exposing private text messages is a breach. People need to be very careful of everything they tell Jax.

          • WestCoastFeed

            That’s what Nicole says in the text. That it didn’t come up at the reunion.

          • I edited my comment. Refresh.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I still don’t think this is any kind of violation of confidence. I bet Nicole would agree. She just made a statement of fact. I see no secret there whatsoever.

    • Hi Donna. I’m a Jacqueline fan but I totally see your point.

    • Birdie11

      I would never trust a Twitter addict with a secret!!

    • MorningYawn

      I think if you are loyal to Jac she will keep your secret to the grave. Screw her and all bets are off.

      • twifan2

        ITA! 🙂

      • Hi MorningYawn. I agree to an extent. Just because a friendship/relationship falls apart doesn’t give her the right to expose secrets.

        • Birdie11

          Seriously! There is a character flaw there…even if friendships go south, there should be a respect for what you once had.

        • MorningYawn

          Agree with ya Seuss! I’m not condoning her behavior just observing.

        • Right.

    • That is my problem with her. When she falls out with people, she tells all of their business, and that to me was never a friend to begin with.

      • Hello & thank you! A friend like that you can’t tell your business, it will be all over Twitter

  • CoinkaDinka

    I think at this point Bravo needs to reboot RHONJ, fire the new additions because seriously except for Rino they have brought nothing to the table. What I would want to see is like Mob Wives of Jersey where it’s Victoria Gotti, Kim Granatell (since she actually has money and is batshit crazy), Danielle Staub but without her poor long suffering children, Joe Giudice and the 4 girls, and Lil Kim. That’s a show that I would want to watch, and at least there would be no pretending it would be anything but pure trash. I think they need to put every Manzo and Laurita and in-law and step child out to pasture.

    • O M G!!!! Now that would be a freaking show. What a perfect cast to bring the right amount of drama and crazy.

      • CoinkaDinka

        Would be TV gold but would never happen I’m sure. I’m excited for next season of Mob Wives where Big Ang beats up Baboon Face whatever her name is, the one whose sister is the creator of the show. That’s going to be amazing! And so deserved!

        • OH NO!!!! I like Rene. I think she’s misunderstood. She makes me laugh more than anything.

          • CoinkaDinka

            I had a friend like her, I think I just had a lifetime supply of that crazy attention seeking behavior. Not that I don’t feel bad for Renee, she has had a legitimately hard life, I just don’t see her as having learned many if any lessons from it. But yes, she often does make me laugh, and there are way worse characters on reality tv from her.

          • Oh I see why you dislike her. I get your point. I’m a lone wolf in this one, many can’t stand her and I understand why.

          • CoinkaDinka

            Oh well, if we all liked/disliked the same characters these commenting boards would be no fun! Have a great evening Seuss!

          • So true! Thanks sweet CoinkaDinka! You’re the best.

          • twifan2

            American Horror Story tonite! 🙂
            Have a good nite, CoinkaDinka! 🙂

          • CoinkaDinka

            You too Twi!

  • Dana

    I usually try to come back on after you wild ones have calmed down.

    Jacqueline needs to go to rehab and stay away from social media for 10 years. The woman is a danger to the internet. Poor Nick.

  • SSSSS

    she heard it from Dina and “a lot of other people”! LOL Yes Jac, it’s not just Dina who thinks you’re crazy–it’s pretty well known.

    • Dana

      It is well known. She’s not known as Jack Daniels for nothing. Her Twitter rants go down in history books.

  • Mustang

    I can’t decide if Jacq is as naïve as she plays, or if it’s an act…not convinced she’s bright enough to fake it. Her daughter Ashlee deserves zero credibility IMO, right along with the Doublemint twins and Dino the dinosaur. They should ALL stay off of Twitter, although I would imagine that Bravo either encourages it or demands it in the contracts.

    • Birdie11

      Don’t insult the cute history of Doublemint twins! How dare you! :0

      • Mustang

        Ha! Okay, fair enough.

    • Dana

      Jack Daniels is looking for attention to secure a spot next season.

      Hate down time! 🙁

  • Poppies1

    I think Jack-o-wine should stop twittering and the boring Dina needs to go away, again!!!

    • twifan2

      Hi Hi Poppies! 🙂
      Deenzer just needs to go away…far away! 🙂
      Jax, will that’s a different story! 😀

      • Poppies1

        Tee hee hee!!! Hey, Twi!!!!

        • twifan2

          How you doing Poppies? All good, I hope! 🙂
          I’m getting ready to watch American Horror Story at 10! 🙂
          Nothing like a GOOD show in the middle of the week! 🙂

    • Hi Poppies! “Jack-o-wine” how appropriate for Halloween–LOL!!
      Please Bravo get rid of Dina…he’s broke, boring and a bitch. Jax doesn’t bother me as much. I just hate how she exposes personal info on Twitter.

      • Poppies1

        Hi, Doc! I agree. Dina is about as exciting as watching grass grow.

        • Ha! Her obnoxious attitude kills me.

          • Poppies1

            If I were Caroline I would be happy that her ass wasn’t speaking to me.

          • Yup!! She’s a total baby.

          • Birdie11

            Where is Dina in the birth order of that brood? Do you know?

          • She’s the baby, last born. That explains why she acts like such a brat.

          • Birdie11

            YES! There ya go…she acts EXACTLY like a youngest child baby brat.

          • Always use to getting her way.

          • Poppies1

            Yup. Not sure why she thinks she is such a special snowflake.

          • Because everyone including Caro have always bowed down to her and licked her boots.

          • twifan2

            AND now look how she treats them! :/

          • Like a spoiled brat having a tantrum.

      • dj j

        I can’t stand Jac. She and her husband defrauded Susan G Komen thousands of dollars, which Jac used for more plastic surgery. And then they use their poor kid as the reason they are broke. They keep starting businesses so they can use it as their piggy bank, and then claim bankruptcy. They have postponed their last trial for over 6 years, and their last stall tactic was to have their attorneys taken off the case because they weren’t being paid. All this from a woman who insists that Teresa be open with her about her trials. Why do we know so much more about Teresa and Joe’s finances, and why wasn’t Jac exposed? If they bring her back, I’m sick of her using her son, why not the truth about their shady business?

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          I don’t think they defrauded the Susan G Komen foundation. From what I understand they couldn’t honor a marketing agreement because some of their creditors forced them in to involuntary bankruptcy. The agreement was only signed a month before I think.

    • Birdie11

      What did these people do without Twitter? GASP!!! Hey Poppies!

      • Poppies1

        I have to wonder…..Hi, Birdie!!!

  • italiano bambino

    Well I am glad Jacqueline doesn’t give a shit and expose dina of what we always knew who she is

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yes, no wonder Dina and Teresa are good friends. They are both vindictive, back-stabbing bitches.

      • twifan2

        And loyal, don’t forget loyal. ;D

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Twi! Loyal they are not. Tre and Dina wouldn’t know what that was if it slapped them across their mugs.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi WCF! They’re fake friends.

        • WestCoastFeed

          But, Mars, Dina tweeted today that they are still close friends. You don’t believe Dina? Hmm, me either.

          • Marsbars09

            Hell no!

      • italiano bambino

        Yes wcf those two are the same person different hair same brain

    • Hey Bam Bam! 🙂

      • italiano bambino

        Hi babe Jacqueline ALWAYS willing to share us some hot tea

  • Marsbars09

    It’s one thing for Dina to be angry with her family, but why is she acting so evil? Even against Ashley of all people? That woman is going to end up poor and alone because she’s just so nasty.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I wonder if Dina really did try to get Ashlee thrown off the set at the reunion and try to prevent her from doing Kathy and Rosie’s make up?

      • Marsbars09

        I wouldn’t put it past her.

        • Hey Marsie. Good evening.

          • Marsbars09

            Hi honey! How are you doing?

      • I believe she did. And I also believe she threatened not do the reunion if Ashlee with Ashlee on set.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I hope Rosie threatened to cut her tongue out.

          • Hahahaha! Hilarious! I loved when she said that the first time.

          • nan/4

            LOL! 😉

    Hi everyone! This is OT but I was hoping you could all keep this family from my town in your prayers! They are about to go through the hardest night of their young lives! Thank you all <3

      • Harleygirl0685

        Thank you! You’ll need a box of tissues . Hug your kids a little tighter !

        • Thank you Harley. I will do that.

      Hey Harley,
      Prayers going up for the whole family now!
      Even though I haven’t been on here, I keep you all in m prayers! May I put him on my prayer chain at church? To me the power of prayer is unwaving!
      Bless you all! God’s peace, love!!

      • Harleygirl0685

        There could never be to many prayers! Baby Shane passed away 4 hours after birth.

    • nan/4

      Done, Harley! I’m right there with them…..

  • italiano bambino

    I can’t wait for bravo to show the behind the scenes WATCH bravo exposing that.. dina trying to get ashley out bahaha the fake zen mask is off..

  • I have to believe Jac on this one. From the moment it was revealed Jacqueline was coming back, there was the talk that Dina was trying to turn the cast against her. Dina is a bold face liar and very fake.

  • kate

    oh come one. Jac & Ashlee have been trolling everywhere, making up stories about Dina. I don’t believe anything that comes out of either of their stupid mouths. Jac also hinted that she was offered a spinoff.. HAHAHA come on really??? Don’t believe everything you read people- the ‘sources’ giving this information have motives.

  • shayvoe

    One thing Jac has never been is a liar. She called out Dina at the table flip dinner as a liar about the Danielle book, and went against her own family to tell the truth. She is telling the truth now.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I get very impatient with Jac for her over- and ill-judged tweeting. But I rely on her word. This woman tells the truth. I believe her.

      • shayvoe

        Yep….one thing Jacs have never been is a liar.

        • She’s truthful to a fault. She’s not a liar but I hate the fact she’s always putting someone’s business on front street.

          • italiano bambino

            That’s the only way seuss… documents talk or in this instance text talk lol

    • italiano bambino

      Glad someone is putting zen in her place. About time.

      • shayvoe

        Hi Bam…me to Jacs is just the girl to do it.

        • italiano bambino

          Hi shay im more convinced now the only purpose of zina in the show was to help the banshee negative image.. plus to film with her.

  • Norrth

    Whoa… so Dina can accept and love people who defraud others out of 13.4 million dollars and who (even by the courts standards) are profound liars, she just can’t stand her SIL who doesn’t bow before her? That’s some screwed up system, in my book.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Yep. If she truly believed Jac was crazy then shouldn’t she be showing her some compassion and understanding. Isn’t that what someone spiritual and zen would do?

      • Norrth

        Exactly. Apparently the zen love she sends Teresa leaves her empty with no love left for anyone else. Must be a pretty small tank. 😉

  • dj j

    You don’t need Dina to tell anyone that Jac is crazy. It is totally obvious.

    • toolate2care2000

      To quote this article “Jim told Rumorfix back at the BEGINNING of the season………..to freeze Jacqueline out”. ” This explains her [Dina’s] venom so early in the season”. So Jacqueline and Dina knew at the beginning of the season that they were bringing Jac back?

      Well someone or everyone here is lying. Either you don’t believe Jim about this freeze out happening, or you don’t believe Jac with her statements about leaving (not being fired) from RHONJ and happily having so much more time to spend with her family.

      And let’s take this a step further. If Jac’s and everyone knew she was to come back – then why where her scenes filmed out of sequence in the spring and shoved in as filler. Why wasn’t she filmed along with everyone at the proper time? Something is wrong here! JMHO

      Oh and BTW Jac – you are crazy and everyone knows it.

      • KJ

        I disagree with some of that too.
        She wasn’t fired, she did quit. She did believe, I believe, that she was coming back, sometime. I think she knew financially she would have to. Also, bravo wanted her back because like Kathy she is lived by many. Maybe NOT by you, but she relates to mothers that are fighting for their child (ME). We can relate to how hard that is & the REAl pain that is!
        Also, Dina was the one that “hurt” the family. Not Jac! I do believe the story about the “freeze out” Dina doesn’t want anyone to upstage her on the show! She wants center attention especially after Tre is “away” LOL JMO

        • nan/4

          Hiya honey!!! ITA with you!

          xo 🙂

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Beginning of season could mean when it started airing on TV, not necessarily when beginning of filming. There were rumors circulating about Jac coming back for a long time and Dina may have wanted to ensure that if she did reappear as a friend, like Kathy and Rosie, that she would be frozen out. Hedging her bets.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Or you might want to read this exclusive AATT article from back in April about Jac filming;

        http://allaboutthetea.com/2014/04/02/exclusive-jacqueline-laurita-returning-to-the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/

        • nan/4

          That was a great article and states things quite clearly IMO. Just sayin’…

          Hey there Westie! I hope that you’ve been well! 🙂

    • nan/4

      Jac has more character in her little finger then Dina has in her entire body. If anything, she exposes the lies that others tell. She may be troubled, and rightfully so, but to go around throwing out words like “crazy” to describe Jac is so wrong IMO.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Completely agree nan! I see Jacqueline as someone who is pretty emotional but very raw and honest. She really doesn’t deserve the “crazy” label. It’s very convenient for the liars to use that when she’s exposing them. I wonder if the problem between her and Dina is that Jac may have been the one to tell Danielle when they were friends about Dina forging Lexi’s dad’s signature on the RHONJ form, innocently not realizing that Danielle would use it.

        • nan/4

          I think that’s EXACTLY what happened TheBeverly! Couldn’t agree with you more…

          Hope you’ve been well my dear! 😉

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            All good nan 🙂 hope the same for you also!

          • nan/4

            Good to hear “Bev!” I’m getting there, thanks!

            Take good care… 🙂

        • Pat Cary

          I want to add here that people are saying that Teresa doesn’t owe anyone an apology because it was Dina’s big mouth that spread the rumor but really, what’s the difference here? Jac told something to her friend (at the time) and she repeated it. How is that Jac’s fault anymore than it is Teresa’s fault that Dina jumped off the Zen wagon?

      • Pat Cary

        I have to interject here with this: If Dina is so ZEN, why is she calling her sister i law names? Why is she putting conflict on Jac when it’s obvious Jac has quite a bit on her plate with Nick. Speaking of which. has the ZEN queen reached out to her brother and sister in law to support or offer any help? Melissa and Joey get flack all the time for what they do or don’t do to help teresa. Just sayin

        • nan/4

          ITA with you Pat! You made very valid points.

          Nice to meet you, btw. 🙂

        • Ventgrandma

          Exactly, but no one calls Dina out for anything (except us) but since she’s Teresa G Ace Coon Boon and she doesn’t ask questions, then she’s the perfect friend and support system. meanwhile if Melissa or Jac did the same crap, then it’s let’s cruxify them.

    • Ventgrandma

      I rather be crazy than some fake azz phony zen. Jac it least tells you whats the deal, unlike Dina, who hides behind folk when things get rough.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Jim’s story about Dina does tie in with the twins claim that Dina had an agreement with them that she would tell them of any rumors and not air them on camera, what was their side of that bargain in return? Dina’s a nasty piece of work. Jac might be a bit over emotional but at least it’s real. I’d rather deal with someone who lays their cards all out on the table, ugly or not, than someone like Dina who sneaks around behind the scenes.

    • Ventgrandma

      I have a feeling that Jim is telling the truth. I don’t think he has anything to lose. Dina loves to be this zen person but she bashed Jim all the time. Zen people let petty things like that go. you’re right, Dina is so nasty.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        So do I, I think he’s telling the truth about a lot of things.

        Do you suppose that Teresa has realized that she NEEDS her brother and sister-in-law now? If so, I bet it didn’t really sink in with her until she was whopped aside the head by that prison sentence.

    Obviously someone is lying here. Is it Jac or the twins or Dina? Personally, I have to say that I believe Jac 100%. Dina is a snake so of course, the first person I would suspect is Dina and if this is what Nicole told her, then why would Jac make that up? Plus, how does Teresa A knows what Nicole may have heard from Dina?

    Kim D is saying that the Giudice family blames Bravo for bringing all this about. ROL has the story with a video of an interview Kim gave to the Derek Z Show.

    Beach spin, can you PLEASE give my email to harleygirl??
    I’d truly appreciate it! Thanks!

    If Jac and Ashlee are seen as the measurement of honesty and not a trace of full out CRACKERS?!? Yes. I’m talking full out Ritz!
    Dina is not innocent but why would ANYONE be that angry for absolutely no reason? Think!
    Remember, the first to present his case always seems right.

    I think these people need to stay off twitter and other forms of social media. Stop airing their dirty family laundry online for the world to see. Its a case of she said he said. There is what Dina says, what Jacqueline says and the truth. They are embarrassing themselves and their families. It should be kept private. I am embarrassed for them.

    More evidence that Dina is a liar. Big time. How did she even get back on the show? Name one thing she has to offer the audience. I suspected from season 1 that she was a s#*@ stirrer who then runs from confrontation the minute her scheme is revealed. She even let her sister take the blame knowing full well she was the instigator.
