The bitch is back!
That’s right, Dina “Zen” Manzo is back after being fired during season two. Dina and her hubby, Tommy Manzo, are going through a divorce, she’s dating again and her daughter Lexi is going off to college.

Dina will play the role of Teresa Giudice’s “non-confrontational” BFF. Dina will pretend Teresa didn’t plead guilty to committing felonies, the
blind soldier friend who kisses ass with a smile!
She reiterated this fact in the new issue of US Weekly. Dina tells the tabloid:
“She [Teresa] finds relief in our friendship because I’m not asking questions about the case. I don’t give a sh*t about the details. I care about her and her family. When we talk, it’s, What are the kids doing? Let’s go have lunch.”
Things have been chilly between Dina and her family for years after she cut ties with the entire cast—along with her sister Caroline Manzo, her brother, Chris Laurita and sister-in-law, Jacqueline Laurita. Caroline Manzo blamed their rift on Teresa Giudice and Dina blames reality TV.
“I didn’t get anyone fired,” the reality star, 43, shares exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. “One of my first questions for the producers when I was invited back was, ‘You’re not getting rid of anyone because of me, right?’ And they said, ‘Absolutely not.'”
“Other than my daughter [Lexi, 18]—we share a bond that nothing can break—I will never do a reality show with family ever again,” Dina, who’s separated from husband Tommy Manzo, tells Us. “It’s just not a healthy environment.”
Season six of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” premieres Sunday, July 13, at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
