Flashback Friday: Zen Dina Manzo Confronts Danielle Staub – Season 2

Posted on May 23 2014 - 11:53am by Avigail


In anticipation of upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, we’re  revisiting memorable moments from past season. Let’s go back to season 2 and reexamine the contentious Season 2 sit down between Danielle Staub and Dina Manzo.

RHONJ Season 1 ended with an epic Teresa Giudice table flip and an enemy line clearly drawn in the sand. Thus, when Season 2 began, it was Danielle versus the rest of the ‘Wives. The unwarranted gang was spearheaded by Dina Manzo.

Tensions in the Garden State were eventually running so high that Dina met with an energist to figure out how to get rid of all the negative energy around her. Following her energist’s advice, Dina set up a meeting with Danielle to cut her out of her life once and for all. However, Danielle was not having it and put the Zen bitch Dina in her place.


According to Dina, the aftermath of this encounter ultimately led to her decision to leave the show. Suuuuure, it did and if you believe that, I have a bridge for sale. (Read the truth behind Dina’s exit from the RHONJ here) 

Now Dina is back, rejoining the cast of RHONJ season 6 despite telling us (numerous times) the show was toxic.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns on Sunday, July 13, at 8 p.m. EST. Watch a preview clip below:

    How do you spell hypocrite? D.I.N.A…..

    Dina is the biggest phony ever. I never liked her and still don’t.

  • WestCoastFeed

    If she thought that she would come back and replace Teresa as the ‘star’ of RHONJ, she is sadly mistaken. Melissa Gorga has a lock on that role, at least for this coming season.

    Liar, liar pants on FIRE—you broke and have no other work.
    But she’s so pretta

      That’s about it. Though I have seen a rumor that Tommy is taking her back.

        For what, so people won’t say he’s gay. The were just married, he never went anywhere with her.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Oh, but they had a weekly date night. That she would tweet about occasionally.

    Dina is such a loser. Not sure why Bravo would even bring her back. She needed a job cause the Manzo money moved out. She has NOTHING. She cant go flop on Caroline’s doorstep or most of the other family members cause she isn’t talking to them either. Her allegiance is to Teresa, the felon. Says aot about her morals.
