Dina Manzo decided to leave The Real Housewives of New Jersey for good after Season 6 after she came to the show to support her friend, Teresa Giudice. Dina was one of the original cast members, filming the two first seasons and returning as a guest during Season 4.
After leaving the hit Bravo show behind, Dina packed her bags and moved to California. There, she started filming a show for HGTV called Dina’s Party, a series that would receive two seasons back in 2012. As viewers remember, Dina was known for her event planning, so it made sense to do a show with party planning and decorating.
Over the past couple of years, she kept a low profile and refused to speak out about her sibling feud with her sister, Caroline Manzo. However, her Instagram hinted that she could be speaking to some of her siblings again. She’s the youngest of 11 siblings, two of whom were part of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Sadly, she did not confirm whether she was speaking to Caroline. She previously told Jeff Lewis that she hadn’t spoken to Caroline in two years, sharing that people change after appearing on a reality show.
In the spring of 2017, Dina Manzo made headlines again after it was revealed that her home had been burglarized. She and David, her boyfriend at the time, had come home from a night out to find two assailants inside their New Jersey townhouse.
The couple were bound, punched and beaten with a baseball bat before the assailants left with jewelry and money.
Just this month, Dina opened up about having a lost a few pregnancies. When she was asked on Instagram whether she wanted more kids, she openly admitted that she had miscarried a few times.
She’s still with David, the man she was dating when she was attacked in her own home. Bravo recently noted that Dina had changed her last name to Cantin on Facebook, which could indicate that she had secretly gotten married to him.
When asked about the couple getting married, Dina played it cool, simply relying “maybe” on Instagram.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
