‘RHONJ’ Cast Amps Up Security After Dina’s Brutal Home Invasion

Extra protection?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey are shocked and shaken following Dina Manzo’s brutal home invasion and beating.

In fact, the cast is so worried they are all ramping up their own security and protection.

“The housewives are freaking out because the attackers are unknown. They don’t know if it has anything to do with the show, and they are amping up their security measures,” a source told Radar.

Dina and her boyfriend Dave Cantin were attacked inside their Holmdel, NJ home by robbers. The couple suffered facial injuries after being repeatedly punched and beaten with a baseball bat.

While the cops are still investigating the couple and their friends are looking for answers as well.

“The townhouse is in an upscale community, so it’s suspicious how the robbers knew to go to their house,” explained the insider.

“Given that, the housewives don’t know if they could be the next victims. So they are doing everything they can do to protect themselves.”

In the meantime, Dina is back in Los Angeles following the traumatic event.

“Dina’s been laying low, barely speaking, with bandages around her face,” added the source. “She thought she was going to die.”

I can’t even imagine what Dina went through she must have been terrified. And I wouldn’t blame any of the Housewives for being worried about their own safety because you never know what could happen.

Should the RHONJ cast be worried about their safety? Can you blame Dina for being traumatized following this horrific event?

  • So glad Dina was able to travel back to LA without anyone recognizing her. She got punched in the face. Dave got hit with a bat to the face. And they were tied up. Awful! Scary!

    • I really don’t understand. How does someone get beaten with a baseball bat and not have any serious injuries. They were well enough to fly home – no hospital stay? It seems odd to me.

      • Dina was punched in the face. Dave was struck with a bat – probably not full force. I think he had his nose broken too. Maybe they did stay in the hospital overnight. I would run and fly back home too. Too scary to go back to the scene of the crime.

  • well this is a sources said, so….

    I can understand the neighbour that Dina’s home is in..amping up security. For the ‘source” to say “the cast is amping up security”…
    sounds like rumour mongering, this infers that RHNJ cast think the robbers are targeting RHNJ cast…nope, that don’t pass the stink

  • I know the incident was traumatic and am glad they’re ok. That said, it really seems like it was a random robbery, thieves looking for empty homes in good neighborhoods. I hope the cast isn’t going to use this as a storyline and spin it like everybody’s out to get them. Of course everyone should be vigilant, not advertise when they’re gone, and try not to flaunt their “wealth”, but letting paranoia get the best of you, is no way to live.
