Danielle is a very troubled lady. She still has anger built up inside her. There’s no dealing with her in a rational way. Maybe she’s got multiple personalitie. She hasn’t changed and she’ll never change. I tried. I’m done, I’m out.

With those words, Dina Manzo walked away from The Real Housewives of New Jersey last night.

All the The Real Housewives of New Jersey

In case they somehow didn't make it clear to viewers that Danielle Staub was to blame for her departure, Dina reiterated to Us Weekly today:

"I would say 99.9 percent is because of Danielle, but the other .1 percent was drama created by her."

While we admire Manzo for getting away from the nut job that is Staub, we find it hard to believe when she says "I thought I signed on for a nice family show and it really turned in a different direction."

Dina's professed ignorance over the goal/theme of the show (catfights, drama, etc.) is about as hard to believe as Staub's claim that she didn't play a key role in the release of her sex tape.

Still, we certainly agree with Manzo when she says Danielle "will make up whatever lie she can to hurt you, and it’s dangerous. Who wants to be associated with that?"

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.
