Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s upcoming wedding to Luis “Louie” Ruelas has been plagued by drama. First, Teresa announced that none of her RHONJ co-stars would be in her eight-person bridal party. Melissa Gorga and her husband, Joe Gorga, who is Teresa’s brother, were furious that Melissa was excluded.
Teresa stated that fans won’t be able to see the wedding on RHONJ but hinted that there may some sort of special in the works. We deserve it. Just saying.
Then Teresa’s Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Season 1 co-star Ramona Singer showed off Teresa’s invitation on the internet, along with all the wedding details. Oof. Teresa had to get new invitations and change some wedding details. No word on if the “Singer Stinger” received another invitation by mail.
Teresa has been friends with co-star Dolores Catania for over 20 years. Teresa didn’t invite Dolores to her engagement party in December of 2021. Teresa initially told Dolores that it was because it was for couples. It turns out that Teresa lied. Gasp!
Teresa didn’t invite Dolores because Teresa’s other bestie, Dina Manzo, was attending. Dina starred with Teresa on the first two seasons of RHONJ. Dina dipped out during Season 2. She and her husband, David Cantin, were present when Louie popped the question in October of 2021.
But there was another reason for the snub. Dina and her husband David were viciously assaulted during a home invasion in 2017. Allegedly, Dina’s ex-husband, Tommy Manzo, and an accomplice beat the couple before making off with money and jewelry. And in 2015, Tommy allegedly hired a member of the Lucchese crime syndicate to beat up David. Tommy plead not guilty to hiring the hit man, and the case is continuing.
Former RHONJ star Caroline Manzo, who is married to Tommy’s brother, Albert Manzo, wrote a letter in support of her brother-in-law. And so did Dolores. Loyalty is tricky among family and friends on this franchise.
Now the bride-to-be has another nuptial hiccup on her hands. According to Reality Blurb!, the Instagram site Best of Bravo reported that Teresa and Dina are allegedly not in a good place.
“As first reported by [Deux Moi] and then [Bravo and Cocktails], I can also confirm that Teresa and Dina have recently had a falling out over Louie and Dave,” Best of Bravo wrote.
“Also, Dina was supposed to be a bridesmaid in Teresa’s upcoming wedding, but as of now, she is not even planning on attending.” Yikes! Best of Bravo added, “Hopefully this changes and they can work everything out.”
Deux Moi previously reported that the friends were estranged. In response to that report, someone supposedly stated that “Teresa and Dina are on the outs.”
Then Deux Moi mentioned in an Instagram Story that Dina and Teresa hadn’t been seen together recently, and that Dina hadn’t been liking any of Teresa’s social media posts. They questioned an unnamed source about Teresa and Dina reportedly being estranged.
The person allegedly said, “I would say so lol. I haven’t asked Dina, but I am seeing no hanging out and no likes.”
And of course, Kim DePaola also commented on Best of Bravo’s Instagram post. “Saw that coming!! Another one of my predictions,” Kim D. wrote. Kim previously spilled that Teresa and Louie’s wedding would be in August of 2022, and that Dina would be the Maid of Honor.
Once again, none of these reports about Teresa and Dina have been confirmed.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK THAT DINA AND TERESA ARE ON THE OUTS? WILL DINA ATTEND THE WEDDING?
