“Apartment shopping…this view doesn’t suck” Reads the caption:
According to sources, the marriage is over with no hope of reconciliation. A prenuptial agreement exists and Dina stands to walk away with the broom she rode in on–nothing else. Dina was struggling financially before RHONJ came calling. Supposedly, she desperately needs the income from the show to support herself and her daughter.
Maybe it’s time for Dina to reconcile with big sister Caroline. I’m sure Caroline has a spare bedroom she would be happy to offer a sister in need.
