This is serious. Former Real Housewife of New Jersey star, Dina Manzo has left the Real Housewives show and her former life as a professional shit-show and is opening up about the dramalicious Bravo series for the last time ever!
If a blog post titled “the-truth” (Lol? Really?) she writes, “It’s a shame this TV show used to be about our lives and now some lives are just about a TV show. That’s not how it should be.”
On the show, her sister Caroline Manzo famously feuded with Teresa Guidice over something mean Guidice wrote about them in her cookbook. I have no idea what could possibly be that upsetting that could also be included in a cookbook. B-tches can’t make pasta sauce like I can.
Dina weighs in, “If this is all about a joke in a book (and [Teresa] assured me it was) that’s not enough for me to hate the mother of my God daughter and a friend of 15 years. Was it necessary to write that stuff in her book? Probably not, but I don’t think it was written with malice either.”
However, now that she’s distancing herself from “all of the toxic behavior” on the show, she admits she hasn’t kept in contact with the other housewives on the show, including her sister.
“I feel bad that my relationship with my sister and her family is strained, but I can assure you that one day it will be back to the way it was.”
However, Dina laughably thinks that the housewives series franchise could be about something other than jersey women fighting and tiny dogs yapping.
“I say we change this housewives thing around and show the world what we’re really made of!” she writes. And what would that be? Huh? Have you been hiding a humanitarian spirit and a PhD that we didn’t know about?
“Let’s lift each other up instead of trying to tear one another down. Lets showcase what women are capable of, what I thought this show was going to be back in the say – Running successful businesses, supporting amazing causes, raising incredible children and looking fabulous every step of the way.”
Awww that’s cute. Hey wishful thinking right? Though she adds, “Unfortunately, not sure what the rating on that would be,” she writes, “So I doubt that will happen.”
I guess what she’s trying to say is, If Bravo ever approaches you about a reality show on your “amazing” life, run away in the opposite direction.
