There was some big news during Monday night’s airing of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. But it wasn’t during the episode itself. It happened during one of the commercial breaks when it was announced that one of the housewives would be leaving…for good!
The big question? Who will be a Real Housewife no longer and will be getting a divorce from the franchise? And right when thing are getting really, and I mean really hot on the show. My guess. Dina Manzo. Why?
Here are some reasons why I think it’s Dina who will be saying Buh Bye.
It wouldn’t be any of the other housewives. Jacqueline seems pretty unaffected by the show. Teresa needs the money. Caroline has her kids as cast members. And Danielle? You know she loves, loves, loves the attention and the drama. So that leaves Dina.
One is the Loneliest Number
All the other housewives have their spouses and kids involved in the show. Dina’s husband wants nothing to do with it and her daughter has opted out of this season (although she was in the last one). She’s a wife and mother who stands alone in the intro with only her cats to show at home per week.
She’s had some pretty harsh attacks. Dina asked for a boycott of a Twitter poster and self-proclaimed “Bravo mole” who is asking for a FBI investigation into Dina’s charitable work. Dina tries to do something nice for people and look what happens…
From the Housewife Herself!
But the most telling tidbit was one directly from Dina herself. In writing in her Bravo blog about her meeting with Danielle that appeared in this week’s episode she noted that Danielle had her “thugs” there. Dina said, “I said in the one scene that I wasn’t afraid of Danielle, and I wasn’t. But after seeing the crowd she rolls with and the fact that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants, I can honestly say that I do fear for my safety. I didn’t sign on for this, as a result of this show, a horrific person is now in my life who I just can’t seem to shake. I think I may have had enough. Watch what happens.”
Will you miss Dina?
