Real Housewives of New Jersey “OG” Teresa Giudice is living her best life right now. She split from long-time husband Joe Giudice after his pesky deportation to Italy. Before that, Teresa stood by her man through infidelity rumors and a stint
in jail at camp.
Teresa and Joe’s divorce was mostly completed in September, but the RHONJ stars are waiting for a court date to finalize the paperwork. Now Teresa has a new man, and she made it Instagram official.
When Caroline Manzo left Real Housewives of New Jersey, she and Teresa Giudice were not on good terms. They’ve been publicly shading each other ever since.
However, they came together for a 2020 Super Bowl commercial, which had a million other people in it, but it was still exciting to see them back on screen together.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been into these newer seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldschneider have been great additions to the Teresa Guidice show. But there is still nothing like the first few seasons of RHONJ. The drama was unparalleled. That’s because it was centered on family drama (say it in your Caroline Manzo reunion voice).
Dina Manzo was a fan favorite. She was also the first Manzo to leave the show. Unfortunately, a whole lot of bad luck followed her and her husband, David Cantin. In 2015, David was assaulted in a parking lot by a hit man hired by Dina’s ex-husband, Tommy Manzo. Two years later, Dina and David were the victims of a violent robbery. The robbery was so scary they relocated to the West Coast. To say Dina needs some relief from this Sopranos-episode-come-to-life would be an understatement. Finally, there’s some good news for her and David.
Other than bringing out the green-eyed monster in Teresa Giudice, what does Melissa Gorga bring to Real Housewives of New Jersey? Oh, right, a fake baby storyline, a fake sister storyline, a fake restaurant, and is there anything else I’m forgetting? Oh, yeah, the constant Envy shout outs and that time she advocated for marital rape.
Well, she does bring Joe Gorga’s comedic relief (and occasionally offensive remarks), but what storyline does she actually have? That’s what her former RHONJ nemesis Jacqueline Laurita wants to know.
Real Housewives of New Jersey fans have become invested in Teresa Giudice‘s daughters’ lives since the first season. They’re not the babies that we “met” when the show first started. They’re growing up and coming into their own and that includes switching up their appearance.
If you thought Gia Giudice looked a bit different in her recent photos it’s because she does. She recently copped to a nose job and she’s not here for the haters. The oldest Giudice daughter is all about keeping it positive.
Let me tell you something about my family – they loved The Sopranos. I never watched it because it scared me. Reading these stories about former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo and her first husband Tommy Manzo, brings up the same bad feelings. In case you missed it, Dina’s ex-husband Tommy (the brother of Albert Manzo – who is also the husband of Dina’s sister, Caroline Manzo) hired a hitman to attack her current husband, David Cantin. I guess the Manzo family is not as “thick as thieves” as stated years ago at the Season One reunion of RHONJ. Caroline has even spoken out about this matter, supporting no one in her family, by saying, “I want to know the truth and my allegiance will lie with the truth.”
Back in May 2017, Dina and David were the victims of a violent robbery that left them so shaken they moved across the country to the West Coast. A man named James Mainello was arrested in connection to this attack. Before this terrifying attack, in 2015, Tommy apparently hired a hitman to commit a violent assault against David in exchange for a reduced price on a wedding reception. I know the economy has been bad, but desperate times do not call for abusing people. Finally, some justice is being served, and it looks like Caroline will have to show some allegiance to Dina.
Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Dina Manzo has been through some serious sh**. Just to catch you up, back in 2017, Dina and then-boyfriend, David Cantin, were victims of a home invasion. Not just home invasion but they were also beaten during the traumatic event. While the couple ended up being ok, it was reported that masked thieves made off with jewelry and cash. Dina went on to have a happy ever after by marrying David. But that wasn’t the end of the story.
A little over a week ago, we reported that Dina’s ex-husband, Tommy Manzo, was the man behind the 2017 attack. He has been charged with hiring a hitman to attack David, to which he has pleaded not guilty. The indictment on Tommy alleges that he recruited a member of a well-known crime family to carry out the attack. In exchange, the hitman would receive a big discount at the catering hall co-owned by Tommy. The catering hall? The Brownstone, which was regularly featured on RHONJ. And guess who else owns it? Tommy’s brother, Albert Manzo. Also known as Mr. Caroline Manzo.
First and foremost, it’s a relief to know that Dina Manzo and her husband David Cantin are safe and sound right now. This week, the story broke that Dina’s ex-husband Tommy Manzo reportedly hired a hitman, John Perna, from the Lucchese crime family, to attack David.
Allegedly, he didn’t even pay the guy. Instead, he reportedly gave him a heavily discounted wedding reception at the Brownstone, the catering hall that Tommy runs with his brother Albert Manzo, Caroline Manzo’s husband. For anyone who’s a little confused seeing the last name “Manzo” so many times in two paragraphs, here’s a little reminder on the back story: Dina and Caroline are sisters who got married to brothers.
