Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Guidice, got married to her love, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, on August 6 in New Jersey while surrounded by family and friends. One friend who wasn’t in attendance was Dina Manzo.
The wedding, which took place in Park Chateau Estate and Garden in East Brunswick, was filmed by Bravo for an upcoming wedding special. This might have been the reason why Dina didn’t attend the recent wedding despite being on the guest list and one of Teresa’s bridesmaids.
A source close to Manzo told Page Six that she didn’t want anything to do with filming and being on camera. So Dina decided to sit out the entire event, including pre-wedding activities like the bridal shower. However, after news broke that Manzo wouldn’t be attending, another source told PageSix that Teresa was completely okay with it. “Teresa respects Dina’s wishes and looks forward to celebrating with her in the future. They remain as close as ever.” They continued, “Dina has made it clear that she does not want to be on camera, and Teresa is OK with it.”
Manzo took to Instagram and shared some shady posts about letting go hours before Teresa’s wedding. It read, “The more you let go, the more your point of attraction elevates. The more your point of attraction elevates, the more your experiences align with your most deeply rooted desires. In other words, the more you heal, the more you live. There is no more important work you can do, than the work you’re doing for yourself in this journey,” In another Instagram post Dina shared, it read, “For most people, their spiritual teacher is their suffering. Because eventually suffering brings about awakening.”
Hours later, Dina Manzo shared another post about knowing when to end things. It began, “And I hope you have the courage to see endings as beautiful, transformative stepping stones. I hope you have the courage to let love, and opportunity move through you like rain.” The last part of Dina’s post read, “I hope you have the courage to see the way in which you loved and tried and fought for something as a testament to just how deeply your capacity to feel is, just how beautiful moments can be when you appreciate them for what they were instead of nullifying them or letting them harden you to the world. Please, I hope you have the courage to move forward. I hope you have the courage to walk with grace.”
