Dina is a lying bitch. Yeah, I said it. Sorry to all the Dina fans out there, but follow her on twitter and you’ll feel the same way soon enough.
Here is the original post I wrote about why I don’t believe that Danielle is the reason Dina left the show.
And now new information has come out. Here is a quote from NYDailyNews.com:
a source close to the 40-year-old Manzo tells us she split because of money,
While the blond single mom hasn’t spoken out about the topic directly, she did mention at the fete, held at Etcera Etcera restaurant, that it wasn’t her “ideal contract.”
Obviously the author of the article made a mistake calling her a single mom, but it’s kind of ironic since there is a lot of talk about her sham marriage to a gay man.
My twitter bff Jacqueline let her big mouth go unchecked once again and was quoted as saying:
“there were a lot of reasons Dina left the show.”
Poor Jac, always forgetting her lines. These new quotes are interesting because I thought there was only one reason Dina left the show. But now there are many reason? In case you need a memory refresher, here are the quotes from Dina around the time she left the show:
[When repeating what she said to Danielle] “I’m leaving the show, because I want you out of my life”
“It is sad, it could have been something really great.”
From her Bravo Blog:
“I left for a reason; I want to cut her out of my life for good.”
There are even more contradictions when she discusses why her daughter, Lexi wasn’t on the show this season. From famecrawler:
When asked why her daughter Lexi wasn’t in this last season she said that it was “not the kind of show I wanted my daughter in.”
From Dina’s Bravo Blog:
Ultimately I am glad that Lexi will not be in this season, but it was very hard for me to film without her at times.
It was also weighing on my mind that even though Lexi was perfectly fine with not being filmed this year, times like this when the other kids get to experience once in a lifetime opportunities due to their affiliation with the show may have made Lexi feel bad or left out. She never said anything about it, but she’s a kid and I’m sure that it crosses her mind.
Does that sound like a quote from a woman who voluntarily took her daughter off the show? If it was her decision, why was she “ultimately” glad Lexi wasn’t on the show? And why add the part about poor Lexi missing out on opportunities and Lexi feeling bad and left out?
Many people have theorized that Dina was supposed to be the star of the show. But it quickly became clear that Danielle was the star and the center of attention in every scene – even the ones she wasn’t in. I don’t think Dina was happy about playing a supporting role, especially to someone she doesn’t like. Maybe she would have if the money were right, but not for 3k an episode.
Now that Danielle is gone and Dina no longer feels the need to continue on with her “Please Hate Danielle” campaign, her story is changing. It’s clear from recent tweets and comments made to the press that Dina wants to come back to the show. But the ratings not only didn’t suffer without her, they broke records. Bravo knows that drama sells and I don’t see them wasting their time filming someone who refuses to engage in drama or “negativity” (another word for “honesty” in Dina’s vocabulary).
Dina has also lost a lot of fans by being an uber bitch on twitter. My dislike of her stems not from the show, but from seeing the way she spoke to people online and from her blocking me – for no reason. I never said one bad word about Dina until after she blocked me. When I asked her why she blocked me she accused me of tweeting negative things to her. That is not true. She blocked me because I was following people who she doesn’t like, but she won’t admit it. It’s not rare for me to see messages in my feed written by people commenting that Dina was either rude to them or blocked them for no reason. Dina needs some serious lessons in PR.
LynnNChicago wrote a good blog a while back about her interactions with Dina on twitter. You can read that here
Another interesting quote from NorthJersey.com
Manzo, a designer and event planner, says she would be open to doing a design show.
“All the different networks are reaching out about what they can do with me,” she says. “It’s nice. It’s kind of weird.”
Lol. Nice try Dina. We’ve all seen what your house looks like. You want to go in and undo all the hard work shows like Hoarders and Hoarding: Buried Alive are doing? Good luck with that. Also, a twitter friend of mine is an interior designer and (was) a Dina fan, one day she asked Dina about certification, and where she got her design credentials – Dina replied by blocking her. Just sayin…
And one last thing. I recently watched the Director Cut of The Last Supper Episode, and there is a whispered conversation between Caroline and Jacqueline that I found interesting. This took place after the infamous “You are such a liar, Dina!” statement from Jacqueline:
Caroline: “That’s my family”
Jac: “You came and you were like; ‘I know what Dina is. You think I don’t know what she is? I know.’ …… You were like; ‘Feel sorry for her, feel sorry for her.’ How can I feel sorry for her when you know what she did?”
Caroline: “Because you’re wrong”
Jac: “You knew – ”
Caroline: “Jacqueline -”
Jac: “Your husband said you knew – ”
Caroline: “Jacqueline, do you know who you’re hurting? My parents.” (<– woah check out that manipulation)
Jac: “Family or not, whats right is right, whats true is true.”
I don’t know about you, but I’d really like to know “what” Dina is. A pathological liar, a psychopath, a nymphomaniac, a serial killer? I have no idea. What do you think?
