Real Housewives of New Jersey didn’t seem like Dina Manzo‘s happy place when she reluctantly appeared on it in her last season. But no matter! She’s found her happy place in real life now, with younger love interest, businessman Dave Cantin. The couple met through work in Dina’s charitable organization, Project Ladybug.
After her divorce, Dina says she was sort of “done” with dating. “I was fine just never falling in love again,” says Dina, but adds “you know, I guess some things happen when you’re not really looking for it.” Cantin was also in the process of divorcing when the duo met. Dina attributes their compatibility to their shared passion for helping others. She says she and Dave are both “really passionate about helping children with cancer,” which is the mission of Project Ladybug.
Not everyone is cut out to be a Real Housewife and there’s nothing wrong with that. In all honesty, it might even be a compliment. Sometimes Bravo casts women who are just way too normal to be on reality TV. There’s nothing wrong with them as humans, but they are just not fit to expose their lives on reality television.
I have no idea why some of these people were cast, but it happened and we all had to sit through it. Most of the Real Housewives ladies are amazing, then there are some that were just way too boring.
I have no idea why this is a news story because I feel like I hear this Vicki starts this “rumor” every year, but Vicki Gunvalson has revealed that she almost did not come back to Real Housewives of Orange County. I never believe it because we all know how much pride she takes in being the “OG of the OC,” but she likes to spread this possibility around in between every season it seems.
Aside from this “revelation,” Vicki also shares her thoughts on her break up with Brooks Ayers, trashes the rest of the cast for not getting over the craziness that happened last year, and comes for her frienemy Tamra Judge– hard.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
“We’re a strong family,” Teresa told Reality TV World at a recent book signing, “and now they have their mommy and we’re going to make it through. I’m with them all the time. I mean, right now, I came to work for a few hours but I’m going right back home.”
Teresa added, repeating herself, “I’m with them all the time. My daughter had a soccer game last night, she had a soccer game this morning, and she has another one tomorrow morning. So, I’m with them all the time. I mean, whenever I have to work, I work but I go right back home and be with my babies. They are my life. I live for them. They need their mommy.”
While some reality TV stars make a huge production out of going to church on Easter <cough-Jenners-cough-Kardashians-cough> for the paps, others enjoy quality time with family. Of course, they are still reality stars, so they share pics on social media. Here is a roundup of our favorite pictures from the weekend.
