If you are not on twitter, then you are really missing out on a big part of the internet world and Real Housewife madness. But since most of you who read my blog are not on twitter, I will fill you in on the juicy (why does this world always make me think of Joe now?) details.
As I explained in my last blog, the whole reason I even wrote the Dina Manzo wedding fiasco recap was because Dina started freaking out when I began discussing her wedding on twitter. Then the recap only prompted more twitter discussions, more Dina freak outs, and more people looking at Dina a little side ways. One of my twitter friends began questioning the finances of Dina’s charity Project LadyBug. You can read Laura a.k.a geoaubsmom a.k.a #LauraM‘s full account of what happened on Lynn’s blog.
The short version of part of the story is that Laura called the charity. No one picked up and her call went to a voice mailbox that was full.
I know twitter can be confusing to follow if you aren’t used to it, so hopefully the way I layed it out will make sense to you guys. If you see me write @someone’s name that means I’m talking to that person, or if I add their name on the end it might just mean that I want them to see what I wrote. If there is no @ then it’s just a general statement from the person’s account.
After Laura tweeted that she called the charity Dina tweeted this:
dinamanzo Guys I LOVE u but no need to defend, Laura M is now turned over to the proper authorities & will be dealt with accordingly. Thank you!
Dina really is insane. This tweet led to a whole lot of twitter speculation over who the “proper authorities” are. Phone police? Twitter police? Manzo Mob?
Here are a couple more tweets from Dina:
dinamanzo Yes tweetholes, I will call u out on your nastiness if I’m in the mood & erase it after u read it. U don’t deserve the followers u may get.
For some reason Dina thinks that every time she responds to a “hater” they get a ton of new followers. Sometimes I do get a few new followers during a tweet war, but mostly I just get their crazy fans threatening me for daring to speak badly about their beloved Housewife.
dinamanzo In a world w such serious issues as childhood cancer & suicide~certain people still choose to spend their time being hateful. MIND BOGGLING
Do you think she yells at Jacqueline, Ashley, Teresa or Caroline about the amount of time they spend being hateful towards Danielle instead of doing volunteer work?
Caroline tweeted this:
CarolineManzo Please stop
But then later there was this tweet from Caroline’s account:
Who could have hacked into Caroline’s account? It must have been someone close enough to her that they were able to guess her password. And someone who wanted people to stop something… hmmmm….
Then their sister Cookie got involved and tweeted this (It was in 3 separate tweets since twitter has a limit, but I combined them):
cookielauritavery saddened by IRRESPONSIBLE tweeters who spend so much time & energy trying to discredit honest hardworking people whose only desire is to help others…maybe they need to take some of that time & energy & take a tour of the childrens oncology dept of their nearest hospital.. maybe then they’ll stop…. : (
A DinaFan jumped into the argument and tweeted this to me:
I tweeted this back:
PutYourHairUp You aren’t even original. NeNe said that line last week.
Then I tweeted this on twitpic:
PutYourHairUp: This is the DinaFan who called me a “fatass” on twitter. Is that a sausage in her hand? Just sayin…
Cupcake322 never tweeted back to me after that (btw, love the guy in the background). But she did tweet a whole bunch of nasty stuff to some of my twitter friends. She has since deleted all of it. I’m sure Dina sent her a message asking her to delete them considering that her and Teresa spent half the day tweeting about the tragedies of suicide while their fans were telling people to kill themselves.
“Tommy Manzo” has been hysterical throughout all of this:
TommyManzo_ Dina talked about her charities all day so she can claim her breakfest lunch & dinner, 11 coffees and a box of exlax on taxes.
TommyManzo_ Dina is on the phone with Albie asking for some “lawyering” advice. Poor Albie, he’ll never be the man his mom….is.
TommyManzo_ Why does Dina want me to hire someone to dig a 2X4 hole in the backyard? What’s she up to? Teresa???
TommyManzo_ Dina just walked by the front windowsill and smacked a ladybug dead with a magazine.
In the middle of all this drama, Teresa not only unblocked me, but followed me (she has since unfollowed me – not that I can blame her). Not only that, but she actually tweeted to me too. I find it HILARIOUS that after months of being blocked and ignored, she decided to not only follow, but compliment me on the day I posted an entire entry dedicated to bashing Dina. Passive aggressiveness, or just bad timing? Who knows.
Then Teresa responded with this:
She also tweeted that her parents don’t live with her, they live 20 minutes away. I tweeted that the parents that live with them must be Joe’s parents. She responded with this:
Is she lying? I don’t know. I don’t even remember how the “parents live in the basement” rumor got started. Well… I may have started the “in the basement” part, but I don’t remember who said the parents lived with them to begin with. Whether they actually live there or not, the fact of the matter is that someone has to be raising the kids and cooking and cleaning while Teresa is traveling and going to parties and Joe is drowning his sorrows in alcohol and crashing cars.
Teresa has been tweeting up a storm all day. All xx’s and compliments to the 100k+ people who are stupid enough to love her. She also tweeted a few times that the rumors about her feud with Melissa Gorga are not true. You can read this and decide for yourself.
I also tweeted this:
Oh, and just incase she tries to deny that it ever happened, I took a screen shot of Teresa following me. Lol:
Melissa just posted this on twitter:
Excerpt from the RealityTea article she linked to in that tweet:
In other news, despite Teresa’s claims that she and her sister-in-law/newest NJ housewife Melissa Gorga are not at war, their facebook and twitter postings tell a very different story.
As we have reported, the two ladies do not get along – at all, mostly due to what sources say is the constant mistreatment and non acceptance of Melissa by Teresa. But we’ll let you be the judge. Check out the following twitter postings made by both ladies last week. Please feel free to pay attention to the timelines –
Guess who else was at Audriana’s small family party? My brother Joe, my sister-in-law Melissa and their gorgeous kids. xx 8:33 PM Sep 21st via web
Here’s a pic of Melissa & my baby nephew Joey at the party. Neither of them are black or not speaking to me. Hmm.. http://twitpic.com/2qqp7d8:35 PM Sep 21st via web
Don’t you love little Joey’s outfit? I brought it to him when I visited him at the hospital. So much for those feud rumors… xx 8:36 PM Sep 21st via web
Above are all tweets by Teresa trying to dispell the rumors. It however seems Melissa wasn’t buying it as she made the following tweets –
This is a first… What a JOKE! 9:34 PM Sep 21st via web
Well I think we have never made it to a tweet or even a mention at all, why now… hmmmmm, good night! 9:41 PM Sep 21st via web
All joking aside, the past is the past, everyone starts with a fresh slate, family is family, period. 11:27 AM Sep 22nd via web
What a day, can a leopard change its spots? I’m not to sure yet… 5:23 PM Sep 22nd via web
Must say I love the balls on this chick named Melissa Gorga. I’m guessing Teresa badly wants to mend things with Melissa as not to appear as a phony and mean person to her fans on the new season of the NJ Housewives. Teresa’s popularity has taken a major hit with the news of her $11 mil bankruptcy filing and irresponsible spending. Having her true colors shown on the new season of the show will definitely not help matters.
So far, it seems Melissa isn’t willing to play along with the phoniness. Plus if Melissa is even telling half the truth about the awful way Teresa has treated her in the past, then I must say that Teresa is a pretty crappy being. And there’s a whole lot more interesting exchanges between these women. For example, just this week, Teresa posted that she was taking dance classes, after which Melissa called her a “copycat,” later posting that she had been taking dance classes for the past 4 months.
And again, I ask regarding the 3rd season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub who? The addition of Melissa to the show is absolutely genius. Also, as of the moment, it does not seem like Bravo wants Dina Manzo back. Can’t say I blame them considering Dina’s husband refuses to do the show, and Dina’s ex-husband has now reportedly banned their daughter from appearing on the show.
