Dina Manzo: Separated Since October!

by at . Comments

Dina Manzo stunned the world on Saturday... or at least those in the world that believed she and husband Tommy Manzo were meant to be together forever.

Indeed, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members dropped a bomb on Twitter, posting the following message to fans:

"My secret...I have been separated since October, my heart hurts but Tommy & I will always share a very special love. So grateful for the support of my loved ones during this time, especially my spiritual friends. You know who u are xoxo."

The couple exchanged vows in 2005 in an extravagant wedding that was featured on the VH1 program, My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding.

Since exiting The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Manzo has gone on to design party spaces on HGTV's Dina's Party.

Dina adds that Tommy and Lexi - her 17-year old daughter with ex-husband George Hadjiapostoli - "will remain close."
