A new Danielle Staub sex tape may be creating the most online buzz around The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but it's a Danielle Staub tirade that has reportedly led to the exit of a show cast member.
Multiple sources confirm that Dina Manzo will quit the series after next week's episode, a decision that was hyped in a recent Bravo promo that teased one of the Housewives will be "leaving forever."
Danielle and Dina have clashed throughout the season, but Zap2It reports it was the former's behavior at a recent charity benefit that truly opened up Manzo's eyes to the self-absorbed lunatics with whom she was sharing the screen.
Referring to Staub's outburst at the event (read about it HERE), Manzo said: "For her to make a mockery of it was extra upsetting as a cast member. It was really the last straw for me."
Away from the cameras, Dina runs Project Ladybug, an organization for children with life-threatening illnesses.
Manzo says she was "a thousand percent" against Bravo filming the aforementioned charity gala. The reason?
"I take this very, very seriously. I am so exhausted at the end of the day and I don't make a penny for Ladybug."
Of course, Bravo would only make the following statement in regard to this rumor: "While there is a lot of speculation about who, if anyone, is leaving the cast - viewers will have to tune in on Monday night to find out the truth."
Okay, fine. We'll do so. But only to give Dina a standing ovation when she walks away from the spoiled nuts jobs that surround her.
