What's Dina Manzo Doing Now? After 'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Season 6, She Made A Big Change
Bravo's Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 premieres on Sunday, July 10 and life in the Garden State will be very different for the ladies. Teresa Giudice is back after serving 11 and a half months in prison, but there will be a Housewife missing from the homecoming: Dina Manzo, who will not return to the show. So what is Dina Manzo doing now if she won't be on Bravo this summer? According to People, Manzo has moved to Los Angeles, launched a skincare line called Glow By Dina, and has even found a new love in businessman David Cantin.
Manzo was asked back to RHONJ , but the distance made any kind of participation in the show tough, she told Fox News earlier this year. "I don't live in New Jersey anymore. I went through my divorce this year [and] I moved out to California, so it didn't make sense," she said in the interview. "I thought about it for a minute, and I thought 'How am I supposed to do this? I don't live there.' I have an apartment here in Manhattan but I don’t live in New Jersey, so I don't see how that could work." Manzo is referring to her divorce from Tommy Manzo, which became final in February, according to People.
Clearly, Dina has made some big changes since RHONJ Season 6, and since we won't be able to catch up with her on TV, here's what she's been doing since then.
She Joined Snapchat
Because the app is all the rage these days. In the caption of this photo, Manzo wrote that her Snapchat name is Sunsettia. She also wrote, "I'm finally using my snapchat and obviously don't know what I'm doing," but it looks like she's got the filters down already.
She's Been Spending Time With Her Dogs
Manzo posts a lot of video and photos of her pups to Instagram, including the video above. Too cute.
She's Enjoying The LA Weather
Manzo posted this snap, which is proof that it has been a hot summer in LA. "Did I mention most Malibu homes don't have air conditioning?" she wrote in the caption. "Yes mine is one of them."
She Also Spends Time With Her Cat
She also posts photos with her cat, who is named Grandma Wrinkles.
She Returns Back East, Too
Occasionally, Manzo returns back to the coast that was once her home. In the snap above, she spent some time relaxing at White Fences Inn, a Hamptons bed and breakfast. She hashtagged it #eastcoastperfection.
She's Running Her Skincare Line
Manzo's Glow By Dina features a product line of moisturizers, antioxidant serum, and cleansers for different types of skin. They are available in kits or individually priced on the Glow By Dina website. According to an interview with People, Manzo has always been interested in beauty. “My first job was working at a beauty supply store,” she told the magazine. “And then I went on to own a salon so I’ve been paying attention to skincare all of these years. I never made a lot of noise about it but it’s always been on the forefront of my interest.”
Manzo may be missing from RHOJ, but it sounds like she's living a great life off-camera.
