Dina Manzo Defends Teresa Giudice, Tells The Truth!

by at . Comments

On part two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion special, Caroline Manzo went off on Teresa Giudice for a number of reasons. Among them: Caroline blames her castmate for the disintegrated relationship she has with her sister, Dina.

How does Dina feel about this publicized mess? In a new blog entry titled blog post labeled "The Truth!," this former Real Housewife writes that she wants to "put all this to rest," and starts by addressing critics:

"Just so you know I've been offered a SERIOUS amount of money to sell this to many outlets BUT I chose to do it for free here. So all of you who have something to say can shove it."

Kathy Wakile and Teresa Giudice

Alright then. Glad that's cleared up. But what about Dina's take on Teresa's recent behavior, which includes a diss of Caroline in her latest cookbook?

"Was it necessary for her to write that stuff in her book? Probably not, but I don't think it was written with malice either," Dina said. "So there you have it, Teresa had nothing to do with me staying away from everyone, I even stayed away from her too."

So why did Dina stay away from cast members?

"I really wanted to walk away from all of the toxic behavior," she writes. "I was not into ganging up on anyone... I guess some of the Housewives may have taken that as I think I'm better than them... that couldn't be further from the truth."

Finally, in relation to her feud with Caroline, Dina is vague: "Feelings did get hurt. I won't get into them because I have no desire to rehash the past that can only hurt my parents whom I adore... There is no side here, this is a private matter..."

Then, of course, Dina closed by plugging Dina's Party on HGTV.

Teresa is just plain stupid. I cannot stand to watch her. Her parenting skills are second only to her language skills, immature and uneducated. Caroline, Jacqueline, and Kathy have more class, care sincerely about their children first, and tried to make peace between Teresa and Melissa. But Teresa considers everything to be a battle, and some day, hopefully not at her children's expense, she will realize what she lost. With Teresa at the helm, this show has gotten to be as uncivilized as the Atlanta show. Take a page from the Beverly Hills group and learn the way women should value each other, Teresa. Teach your girls how to be women who control themselves, are honorable, moral, fair, self-sufficient, educated, reserved, modest, and proud of their accomplishments. (hint- writing your mother's recipes does not qualify as a great accomplishment, nor does discussing your love making on national television.

I agree with what Leo said about these shows. To stoop to the levels they have has got to be humiliating at the end of the day - to all cast members. The ones with the least shame appear to be Caroline and Melissa. Caroline makes comments about her daughter needing to lose weight and not being beautiful until she does; while Melissa sports a hot pink fat suit around time square. As if her need for attention was not evident enough when she jeopardized the health of her husbands family for her desire for fame.

THANK YOU Granny Hotlips. I'm a gay man myself and I was more offended by Andy's over-emotional and superficial reaction to that clip. Joe Giudice is obviously not homophobic. He was born in a small town in Italy and lives in Italian-American Jersey. Some people are more old school, that doesn't mean you're a bad person....

this show has become really hurtful,three gang up on one,all three housewives should really be ashamed of their self, we teach our kids not to put other people down,but you three should go back to the elementary school and learn how you should treat others,no wonder teenager think sex is o.k.,when all melissa and joe did was advertize it,please use some morals on this show.I am just about thru with this show,it seems Caroline you never take credit for your behavior.And the way you make fun of thersa about her education,shame onyou all,including andy.Melissa you all the time given credit to Jesus,how about showing a little concern for your sister-in-law, I agree with theresa about it seems she always offer the olive branch,then she get knock down by you all including her own brother, I could not believe how he spoke to his sister,my brother would never act like that,life is to short!I hope and pray there is more people being nice on this coming season.

it seems that television has really sunk to an all time low when the highest ratings are dependent on reality shows with housewives who bicker,attend functions and parties with friends and family who they can Not stand to be in the same room with. It is one thing for the women to be on display for a half season, and still another when they show up at a reunion show with Nothing but contempt,backstabbing and hollering hatred towards each other. Even in these times of economic crisis, I find it hard to believe that women and family members would *actually allow themselves to be belittled on television in front of millions of people for temporary fame. In the final analysis, is that *particular paycheck really worth the embarrassment and indignation that awaits and spiral out of control at the reunion shows? I am just asking!!

Come on - give her a break. In the reunion the discussion about Joe using f a lot and how it was rude, the comment (can't remember who came to the defense) was spot on. The background/education of both Teresa and Joe has soooo much to do with how we politically correct Americans judge others, not right/fair. She (T) as we can easily see on the show, speaks w/o thinking, her use of words/grammar ???. Teresa needs to stop trying to be super brain and show her true self as a mom and wife.
