Yeah, I was right. Last week when it was announced that one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey would be leaving the show. My educated guess, due to watching and writing about the Real Housewives way way too much, was that it would be Dina Manzo. And right I was.
On Monday’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, in the last two minutes I should add, it was officially announced that Dina would be leaving the show and this was to be her last episode. So why did she leave?
For one reason. One very caustic, polarizing and “prostitution-whore”ing reason. Danielle Staub. On the show she stated that, “Danielle is a very troubled lady.” She continued wondering that, “Maybe she has multiple personalities.” It was never smooth sailing for the two Jersey housewives. In the first season Dina stated that Danielle was “obsessed with me. She wanted to be me, or skin me and wear me like last year’s Versace.” And although Dina tried to give her another chance, after Danielle’s claims of being a changed woman, Dina realized that, “she’s still good old Danielle” and a “crazy bitch.”
Dina had enough saying, “I tried. I’m done. I’m out.” She wants to stay away from her. “She’s dangerous. I’m not sure what she’s capable of.” So what is she going to do in her post real housewives life? She’s going to spend more time with her husband and daughter and working on her charity Project Ladybug. When asked why her daughter Lexi wasn’t in this last season she said that it was “not the kind of show I wanted my daughter in.” Saying if it was a show like Cake Boss, yes. But not Real Housewives. Initially Dina thought that The Real Housewives would be a “happy show,” one that she could do with her family that would be fun. Yeah, right. It didn’t turn out that way now did it. But really, that wouldn’t be very much fun to watch now would it?
Will you miss Dina?
