Dina Manzo’s “ZEN” Exposed Via Twitter Blasts Targeting Jacqueline Laurita

Posted on Nov 4 2014 - 1:43pm by BeachSpin

Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo

Dina Manzo seemed to think that “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion would the opportunity she was looking for to clarify what she considered to be viewer misconceptions of relationship conflicts that seem to run rampant in the Manzo clan.

While the Mad Max exterior was distracting, Bravo gave her a ton of airtime to explain her side, which was articulated by Dina as wishing for semi-fake and surface interaction with all family members, except for sis in law, Jacqueline.  She went on to elaborate that Jacqueline pollutes her zen, and Caroline is only acceptable for television cooking, but she is willing to love and pray for the rest of them via altar photographs.  She implied that she has reached out to the family through invitations to family events, only to be snubbed. Caroline defended herself immediately and shed some illuminating light on the family storm, by accusing Dina of being the only family member estranged from the Manzo clan. Caroline claimed that the one who needs to get a grip is Dina, not Jacqueline.

It’s not hard to guess what happened next with this social media loving pair…and it got ugly.  Apparently viewers didn’t buy what Dina was trying so hard to pitch Sunday night, (I would suggest a wardrobe pick that doesn’t bring on the giggles next time), and she was clobbered on Twitter post reunion, and “Watch What Happens Live,” which is where her sister Caroline, spoke her mind.

Jacqueline took notice of the beating and put in her two cents, seemingly wanting to move on from the mess.

Dina ditched what was left of her zen, and responded with venom.

Dina is asserting mass viewer and Twitter follower manipulation….powerful kudos for supposed success to someone who was only allowed to film with a small fraction of the cast, allegedly because of pressure from Miss Zen herself.

Jacqueline responded by communicating her wishes for inner peace for ‘those people’…wait…. isn’t that Dina’s motto? Jacqueline’s point was clear.

For someone who doesn’t believe in bringing up family issues, Dina Manzo sure seems to gain some sort of peace by blasting them all over Twitter. So where is this inner peace that was supposed to define Dina Manzo this year? I think she left it back on her portrait laden altar.

    Do you think Dina was expecting a warm loving welcome back from viewers? I do Surprise!

    • Yes, she was. Her ego is through the roof. She has an air of self entitlement that is obnoxious.

    • Birdie11

      Absolutely! I think she expected her reunion drivel to be well received too. Cluelessly full of herself.

  • MorningYawn

    “Get the psychiatric help you need” – project much? Damn!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      She sure is projecting.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Dina is not fooling anyone. Her tweets are calculated and manipulative, all geared towards riling up her minion followers to attack Jacqueline. Her motivation is clear.

    • Poppies1

      Yup! She is a passive-aggressive bitch. Zen, my ass.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Yes, she is. She’s an annoying gnat too.

  • italiano bambino

    Zinester is at it again. .. atleast with Jacqueline what you see is what you get. Poor dina her return flop and getting her hateful frustrating is eating her up!!!!

    Flop by BRAVO

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    The only reasons Dina gives for cutting them out of her life is that Jac is “toxic” and ruins her zen – seriously how can someone cut their brother and his kids off like that just because they don’t like his wife? It’s so unbelievably childish, self centred and sulky. And I really don’t see Jac using Nicholas as a weapon against Dina – Andy is the one who brings him up and if Dina is going to comment on him instead of just saying she won’t discuss it then of course Jac has a right to answer! She really has some balls bringing up them not going to the graduation after not turning up to any of their events for 5 years. And they would have gone if Dina had met with them to smooth things over beforehand. Dina and Teresa are perfectly matched.

    • MorningYawn

      I don’t like either of my BILs and I still go to family functions with them, smile and (usually) make nice. Lol! It never should have gotten to this.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Same here! I have one SIL and one BIL that would not be my cup of tea normally but we all get along when we see each other because we have to. I just don’t get how someone can do what Dina is.

  • italiano bambino

    Did Jacqueline talk about zina on the show. I didn’t recall everything was via Twitter. .. dina saying that all bets are off since Jacqueline decided to come back! That’s one crazy fake ass zen!

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I actually don’t think I have ever seen Jac discuss Dina on the show except when she was asked at a reunion.

      • italiano bambino

        Right she didn’t. andy askJacqueline and Caroline along with Chris was on the reunion regarding dina… she just pissed with them for her continue failing on Reality tv.

      • prycer

        Jacqueline only spoke about Teresa. Not once did she mention Dina. Dina is the one who keeps speaking about Jacqueline (reunion).

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          Jac only reacts – she is never the instigator in any of this drama.

  • Birdie11

    Dina came to that reunion rehearsed and ready to go…she can’t face that her return has been an epic fail…so she might as well blame someone she was pissed at already. I think her stubborn ego fosters lazy thinking, and it gives her a reason to be lazy in general. Praying for pictures instead of known people who take effort and carrying on with a husband that doesn’t want her anymore….her zen= lazy.

    • italiano bambino

      Amen!

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Birdie11 I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. Dina is lazy. She depends on other people to provide for her and doesn’t seem to have done much herself. She’s certainly not an independent woman. Maybe she thinks her looks and being the baby of the family was enough in life.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Spot on. I agree.

    • BOOM!!!!

    • Bathroom Bobby

      She’ll try for #RHONY now since she lives in the city

  • Chloe

    Dina…Dina…Dina..more and more of her non-zen personality is coming out. She’s a fraud like her BFF, Teresa.

  • TartLemon

    Why are my comments not posting?

    • Hey Tart…double check your profile, it looks like you made them on ROL.

    • Dave

      It posted lol.

  • TartLemon

    Why are my comments deleted?

  • Bathroom Bobby

    Dina is one hateful lying bitch! Her comments about Nick were disgusting, I believe nothing she says just like I believe nothing her BFF Teresa says

    • Yes! How people on Twitter can say they love her blah blah blah is beyond me.

      • Bathroom Bobby

        I know it’s really amazing that people can love her or Teresa for that matter

  • TartLemon

    No, it was here. Several paragraphs.

    • What was the comment?

      • TartLemon

        I was commenting about Dina coming on the show expecting a cooking show with Teresa, but tried to put Caroline on the spot since Caroline has always supported Dina as family in the past.

        The original post did not post. WHY?

        • I have no idea. Try it again.

          • TartLemon

            LOL… it was several paragraphs. I have trouble remembering what I had for lunch a few minutes ago. I’ll just consider it an oopsie and move on. Ohmmmmmmm

          • Darn! I love your comments, I bet it was a good one too 🙁

            Well if bits and pieces come back, post them. I want to know!!

  • Bathroom Bobby

    I guess it was OK when Dina came back on the show while Jac was on there just to tell Teresa blood isn’t always thicker than water

    • Dave

      That was a direct dig and shows she’s a hypocrite. Funny how she can do it but when Jacqueline did it was betrayal.

    • Yolie

      Dina went after Jacqueline as soon as Jac came back to film. Dina needs to blame Bravo not Jac. Bravo asked her back and filmed her.

  • TartLemon

    In the past, Caroline has always supported the baby of the Family Dina. Even in bookgate, Caroline took the heat that was obviously Dina’s fault. I think Dina had already pitched an Italian lifestyle/cooking show idea using Teresa who almost everyone expected to get probation/house arrest. The reference Dina made to the cooking show with Caroline was an after thought that Dina just assumed she’d get the same support as in the past. Quel Surprise when Caroline finally put Dina in her place. WTG Caroline.

    How many reality show attempts has Dina had? Several made it to air, being cancelled after only a few episodes. Some were filmed, but never even made it to air. Some never ever left the drawing board of the pitch meeting.

    • Hi Tart. Excellent post. As usual good observation regarding the cooking show and Dina’s afterthought reaction. Every move with her is calculated. She’s extremely manipulative.

  • Sherry

    So true! If dina is really mad about season one its time to grow up. She doesn’t like the light it put her in, its negative and isn’t her crazy zen belief. Sometimes its better to agree to disagree n move on but dina won’t. She trys to give her family ultimatums either her or jac n they should not have to choose. Its her battle. I hope she really is leaving cuz I can’t stand her, not at all. I’m trilled jac is coming back. She speaks her mind n that’s what we watch reality TV for. Haters r gonna hate but I love love love her!

  • prycer

    Here goes Ms. Walking (Dina) Contradiction again. I am so done with her. Bye Felicia!

  • JustJill

    I agree with Caroline Manzo.
    Dina needs to grow the **** up! Dina is the one causing her parent’s heartache.
    She’s a spoiled brat that wants things her way or not at all!
    (See her wedding episode on VH-1 for Dina at her “finest”)
    So a man with a wife and 2 kids is supposed to leave his wife so Queana will accept him, Caroline, and Jaime Laurita back into her inner circle of peace?? She delusional. It is a
    package deal Dina! We all have relatives we don’t like. Do what most mortals do and suck it up at family functions. You don’t have to be BFF’s and sing Kumbaya.If you can’t make peace you can at least grow a set and remain polite.
    You forgive the walking felony Teresa Guidice ANYTHING, but your own family is shown scorn. Quit crying for the cameras. We the public aren’t buying it. I’ll go see my sister at Christmas while your at the mall looking for love in the Jimmy Choo section.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Well said!

    • *clapping* Thank you for pointing out the MANY hypocrisies of Dina Manzo.

      • JustJill

        TY!

      • msmcdonjm

        Hi doll, very early for me, just saw you here but will continue latter..love ur icons {: Sleep time..

    • RonnieIsBack

      Agreed!!!!!! Co-Sign!!!!!

  • ZammyB

    I agree with Dina. Whatever happened they have tried to down play for ages. I believe the reports that Jax was behind the majority of the anti-Dina anti-Tre tweets that went on after season 1. I think the reason Dina doesn’t talk to them is bc Jax is crazy. I know they reeled her in but Jax is nutso. She’s very unstable. I also don’t think DonCaro needs to get involved at this point. She needs publicity bc her show is a guaranteed snooze fest. She must be hating that YES we all watch bc of Teresa, whether you hate her or not. I mean she’s behaving just the same as Dina. They all behave like that, even Chris, like holier than thou know it alls who are above every one else. I am on Team Dina.

    • toolate2care2000

      It is truly a shame what Reality TV has turned these people into! Take your dirty laundry and hang it somewhere the public doesn’t need to see it – it does not make you more relevant, more interesting, more popular, more ANYTHING!! OK, maybe more disgusting, but I digress.
      I could make comments about being on “her” side or “her” side – but you know what? Who should really care?? What difference does it make? Haven’t we all had some kind of disagreement with a relative? Would you really want it aired on TV for the world to see/judge/comment on like these morons? What are these famewhores doing to their families, both the young and the old, with all this nonsense?
      Go on trips and call each other out because someone went downstairs and left you. Go out shopping and try on all those dresses that your 20 year old daughters wouldn’t be caught dead in. Build your imaginary houses and fill cannolli shells – entertain us. But shame on you – Don’t pull us into your private garbage! I just don’t care.

    • Lisa Pat

      Sammy you are spot on. I have watched RHONJ since season 1. I know that Jac is using Nik as a pon against Dina and for a storyline. I remember WAY BACK before that precious little boy was even born, Jac was in the bathroom talking smack on Dina to Teresa!! This was Season 1. Jac was trying to destroy Dina THEN. Teresa stayed diplomatic and refused to engage, but Jac was trying her best to sway Teresa’s view of Dina. Jac has been unstable since season 1 and has progressively gotten worse. Her behavior on twitter with the ranting, the drinking, etc has been growing more and more unstable and apparent to all. I want so much to go on WWHL as a fan and have a one on one with Caroline. I am appalled that caroline and Chris feel that they are a “package deal” and that Dina must accept Jac into her life to have her brother and sister back. That is sick! No one would allow Danielle Staub into their life in Season 1 b/c they felt she was dangerous and unstable. Well – so is Jacqueline! She is unpredictable and a ticking time bomb! She needs serious psychiatric help and i say that as someone who is educated on the matter.She is severely mentally ill. Of all the housewives franchises, Jac Laurita is the most truly unstable and I believe it will be proven one day when she truly cracks and it cant be hidden any more.

  • RonnieIsBack

    oooh the Bish Gonzo is maddddd LOL..a clear sign that she was busted lyin…but she is smart not to go against CAroline…bish will need a place to stay –again.

  • deb

    Dina is jealous of Jacqueline because Chris was engaged to her best friend, but married pregnant jacq instead. and now jacq has the life Dina has always wanted. maybe if Dina had married for love instead of money, she could have true zen, instead of the fake zen that comes and goes, seriously, na maste bitches, she should have her zen card revoked just for that tag line.
