The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo decided to return for a single season last year, but that return may have been more than enough. Shortly after wrapping up season 6, Dina decided to move out to California. She had been doing some work in front of the camera that didn’t fall into a Bravo category and that seemed to be more important than The Real Housewives of New Jersey. But now that Teresa Giudice is out of prison, Dina could be thinking about her friend. According to a new Bravo report, Dina Manzo is now getting an invite from Teresa to join this new season of the show.
“I love her. She’s one of my best friends. She’s my daughters’ godmother. I just love her,” Teresa told the Daily Dish, revealing that she would love to film the show with Dina Manzo once again. Of course, it is very possible that she won’t be able to get Manzo back on the show, as she’s currently living in California. Plus, Dina may be hesitant after the drama with James Marchese last season.
But Teresa is filming the new season with original housewife, Jacqueline Laurita. There have been rumors that they have been feuding, but she’s teasing that the new season could be fun to watch.
“It’s been great — you’re gonna have to see how that plays out. But Manzo’s been supporting me, which I think is great,” Teresa said about Jacqueline, adding, “She always has and I want to do the same with her.”
Many people are wondering how Giudice’s relationship is with Melissa Gorga, as the two didn’t really make peace before she went to jail. Dina Manzo did hint that Melissa was to blame for their troubles, but it sounds like Giudice has put those troubles behind her.
“Everyone’s going to really love this season. You’re gonna have women that support each other, that lift each other up,” Teresa explained about her co-stars, including, “I think that’s what life’s all about. I think we should all do that. Well, Melissa’s my family. I’m always going to love her no matter what. Family could never do any wrong.”
While Teresa is having a blast filming this new season of the show with Jacqueline and Melissa, Dina Manzo is busy rebuilding her life in California. When fans last saw Manzo, she wasn’t really sure if she should go through with the divorce from her ex-husband. One can imagine that she finally did sign the papers, as she packed up her bags and headed to California. And while there, she’s been working on a skincare line called GLOW, according to Reality Tea.
“Soooo excited!!!!!! I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of dermatologist to bring you a line of skincare that’s affordable, not tested on animals and REALLY gives you that GLOW you always ask about. I’ve decided to do a sneak peek for Valentine’s Day giving you 10% off and matching ANOTHER 10% to help children with cancer,” Dina Manzo has revealed about her new skincare line, adding, “The prices will go back to normal for the official launch so this is the perfect time to try it for yourself or gift it to someone you love. What’s better than looking great and helping kids in need?? Thank you so much I’m so excited to see you all GLOW!!!”
It sounds like Manzo won’t be filming the new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey with Teresa, even though the offer is on the table.
What do you think of Dina Manzo’s new life in California? Do you understand why she may not want to return to Bravo?
