Dina Manzo seemed to think that “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion would the opportunity she was looking for to clarify what she considered to be viewer misconceptions of relationship conflicts that seem to run rampant in the Manzo clan.
While the Mad Max exterior was distracting, Bravo gave her a ton of airtime to explain her side, which was articulated by Dina as wishing for semi-fake and surface interaction with all family members, except for sis in law, Jacqueline. She went on to elaborate that Jacqueline pollutes her zen, and Caroline is only acceptable for television cooking, but she is willing to love and pray for the rest of them via altar photographs. She implied that she has reached out to the family through invitations to family events, only to be snubbed. Caroline defended herself immediately and shed some illuminating light on the family storm, by accusing Dina of being the only family member estranged from the Manzo clan. Caroline claimed that the one who needs to get a grip is Dina, not Jacqueline.
It’s not hard to guess what happened next with this social media loving pair…and it got ugly. Apparently viewers didn’t buy what Dina was trying so hard to pitch Sunday night, (I would suggest a wardrobe pick that doesn’t bring on the giggles next time), and she was clobbered on Twitter post reunion, and “Watch What Happens Live,” which is where her sister Caroline, spoke her mind.
Jacqueline took notice of the beating and put in her two cents, seemingly wanting to move on from the mess.
Dina ditched what was left of her zen, and responded with venom.
Dina is asserting mass viewer and Twitter follower manipulation….powerful kudos for supposed success to someone who was only allowed to film with a small fraction of the cast, allegedly because of pressure from Miss Zen herself.
Jacqueline responded by communicating her wishes for inner peace for ‘those people’…wait…. isn’t that Dina’s motto? Jacqueline’s point was clear.
For someone who doesn’t believe in bringing up family issues, Dina Manzo sure seems to gain some sort of peace by blasting them all over Twitter. So where is this inner peace that was supposed to define Dina Manzo this year? I think she left it back on her portrait laden altar.
