Dina Manzo was one of my favorites on The Real Housewives of New Jeresy and I was sad to see her go, but I understand!
Dina talk a little about watching the reunion and the real problem with Danielle…The Drama…
â€œI watched half,â€ Manzo told PEOPLE Wednesday at a party for My Big Gay Italian Wedding, the Off-Broadway play she is producing to benefit the Marriage Equality of New York organization. â€œI got annoyed and turned it off.â€
â€œI was invited to be there and I chose not to be there,â€ said Manzo, who left the show mid-season.
In recent months, Dina has accused her former castmate (and adversary) Danielle Staub, of trying to manipulate her ex-husband, the father of her daughter, Lexi, and interfere with the co-parentsâ€™ relationship.
When Danielle mentioned Dina during the reunion special, Dinaâ€™s protective older sister, Caroline Manzo, shot back, â€œDo not speak of my sister!â€
â€œI just wish my name didnâ€™t come up and, of course, that my daughter didnâ€™t come up,â€ said Dina, who says she doesnâ€™t regret leaving the show. â€œItâ€™s all bullâ€”t and thereâ€™s a line between life and entertainment, and I think the line was crossed.â€
These days her time is focused on family and the foundation she founded for children with cancer, Project Ladybug. â€œIâ€™m really enjoying what Iâ€™m doing now,â€ Manzo said, â€œfood shopping, cleaning and taking my daughter to tennis.â€
