The Manzo & Laurita Clan Speaks Out About Dina Manzo’s Recent Violent Robbery; Have They Spoken Since?!

Caroline and Dina Manzo have had a very tumultuous relationship over the years, but at the end of the day their family is, “as thick as thieves!

Although they are currently on bad terms, Caroline is still supporting Dina, following her recent tragedy. (For those of you living under a rock, she and her boyfriend Dave Cantin were the victims of a violent home invasion. “I hope the police get to the bottom of this and whoever is responsible for this gets what’s coming to them,” Caroline told E! News. However she didn’t reveal if they’ve spoken or not, but it’s safe to assume Caroline has reached out.

Meanwhile Chris Laurita confirmed that he did talk to Dina on Monday, and she is doing as well as can be expected right now. “She is obviously shaken by the whole thing. She’s back in California now and seems to be OK. It’s unfortunate what happened. Hopefully they’ll get to the bottom of it,” he explained. He did not say anything about his wife Jacqueline, and since she has had such a public feud with Dina, it’s likely he would have mentioned if they’ve spoken!

Dina’s brother-in-law Al Manzo opened up to People and admitted, “Everyone is shocked by the sheer horror of it.” He never comments in the media, and clearly only a tragedy like this would get him talking.

Dina was married to Al’s brother Tommy, however they divorced in recent years and she outed his infidelities on RHONJ. Despite the bad blood on multiple levels, Al sent Dina his well wishes. “I am glad they are well enough to fly back. It’s so tragic. I’m sure Dina was traumatized,” he wrapped.

We’re so glad to hear that Dave and Dina are back on the West Coast, and are sending them well wishes and many prayers!

Thoughts on Caroline’s response? Do you think she spoke to Dina? What about Chris’ comments? Did Jacqueline speak to Dina? Are you shocked Al Manzo spoke out in the media?

    What’s most important , is that family comes together in an emergency and when it’s needed , no matter the pettiness or bickering .

  • samael

    Holy crap! this is about tonite! OFF TOPIC

    I want to to know what this person said to Carole – that she doesn’t want us to hear?

  • September24

    O/T Did anyone read the news story of the Florida man who faked stage 4 cancer and scammed money, food, and shelter from every woman he met? This guy is giving Crooks a run for his money! The NY Post has the story.

    • samael

      WOW, maybe that guy bought Crooks “how to” book! such trash!

  • Shipp

    I’m glad Dina and David are back in California, and healing. I’m also glad Dina didn’t feel the need to stay with her “sick as seeves” “fambly” (Caro speak). Translation – thick as thieves family.

    God bless Dina and David and Lexi to restored health and happiness.

    • samael

      me to shipp!

      I hate that she experienced this,but she knows where she feels safe..away from “them”

  • RU4real

    I was so hoping Caroline or Jac (one and time only I wish she would go crazy) is say something against Jim and Amber on twitter, because what they said was disgusting and for once they should publicly say something against him

    • Bethany

      What did Jim and/or Amber tweet?
      I’m old, so I’m not on Twitter 🙂 Thanks for any info

      • September24

        This site ran the story yesterday and showed the messages. You can still look it up and comment on it.

          Thanks for the link. It amazes me someone in the world acts as disgusting as Jim does. I would say Jim’s behavior shocked me, but I would be lying. Par for the course for him. Karma is all I’ll say.

          I’m from South Jersey & they said on the radio this morning someone(I don’t remember who) thought it was an inside job. I’ve never been a fan of Dina, but I would never wish her or anyone harm.

          • September24

            It could very well be an inside job. Dave has debt too. Could have been payback. I do wonder if there is any security footage or information that the police have not made public. hmmm…..

          • RU4real

            Exactly that man disgust me it is basic human decency and compassion to never which things like that one someone else. I karma will happen at some point in some way


    Sound like Chris is the only one who spoke to her! lol They’ve always had the closest bond. I would hope if they all found time to publicly comment that they privately spoke to her and Lexi but nonetheless they aren’t as evil as the Marcheses so I’d expect no other type of answer from them to the media.

  • September24

    I am okay if they don’t call Dina. What is not okay is allowing “Who’s Jim” to twitter about it and not stop him. I’m looking at you Jac! His friend! Your silence shows your alliance to him. Shame on you.

    I’m glad not one family member took to social media about this. Good to see support for dina, that is all I expect.
    All I can think of, is how hard it must have been for Dina to say good bye to Lexi.

  • rhfan

    My thought here is that family should support family, period. IMO, it’s unnecessary to “applaud” these people who did what they’re supposed to do. Maybe they can all use this incident as a starting point to mend fences. It could be the silver lining to this traumatic event.

    • Shipp

      Rhfan, nice thoughts. But I don’t trust that bunch of backstabbers…that would be Caro and family, and Chris and family. Thick as thieves my Aunt Fanny. Eh.

      • luvs2ride

        Excellent points, rhfan & Shipp. Family should be behind each other without a second thought.
        She could have easily been killed. If that ain’t a wake-up call, then I don’t know what is.

        • barbara

          When there is a rife in the family, sometimes it cannot be mended. I know from experience. sigh

      • rhfan

        at this point, any “reconciliation” should be with eyes wide open,?
