Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo recently shared that she and her husband are separating after being married for seven years. While Manzo is just now sharing her story, she says the two have been separated since October.
According to the Daily News, the couple met through Dina Manzo's older sister Caroline Manzo, whose husband is Tommy's brother, Albert Manzo. However, after multiple incidents and arguments, Caroline and Dina no longer communicate.
The pair met in 2005 but do not have any children together. Dina Manzo has one 17-year-old daughter, Lexi, from her previous marriage to George Hadjiapostoli.
People reports that Tommy Manzo never actually appeared on Housewives and that he had an “aversion to the media.” Dina Manzo now has her own show on HGTV, Dina's Party.
Dina took to her Twitter to thank people for their support.
So grateful for the support of my loved ones during this time, especially my spiritual friends. You know who u are xoxo
