Teresa Giudice Reveals Dina Manzo Is Still Scared And Walking On Eggshells After Robbery And Assault!

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo and her boyfriend David Cantin were the victims of a weekend home invasion five months ago. Dina is still on edge walking on eggshells after the incident according to her best friend Teresa Giudice.

Teresa writes in her memoir, Standing Strong that Dina is still scared saying, “Dina told me that she’s scared now. She doesn’t want to be afraid, but how can she not be? Someone violated her space and then attacked her physically. There’s no way to forget that. She’s walking on eggshells. She’s looking around every corner. She’s aware of who’s in front of her, who’s next to her, and who’s behind her.”

Teresa talks about the call Dina made to her while she was in the hospital adding, “Dina called me. She was still in the hospital and was hysterical. She was crying so hard. She just kept saying, ‘I got punched.’ I felt devastated.”

Up close and magical ?A lot of you have been asking about the ring I’ve been wearing in my insta stories. No it’s not an engagement ring. I vowed the moment I survived that horrific ordeal on May 13th I would never wear jewelry again. Soon after that awful night a package arrived for me. In the chaos of all that was going on I had forgotten I interviewed a very special women, the founder of @fredandfar. We spoke about how powerful her movement is, how the simple ritual of putting on a piece of jewelry every morning reminds you of something so important. Yes an engagement ring reminds you of the love you have for another but where’s the ring reminding you to love & care for yourself? Well this is it. Self care is something so many of us (especially women) tend to put to the side. Our spouse, children, job, school..so much has to be tended to we often forget that we need to tend to our needs too. This ring was painstakingly designed down to every detail too. You can hear all about it in my interview on @livvtv. (Link in bio) The night I received this ring I was so hesitant & scared to put it on my finger. I wasn’t sure what kind of emotions it would bring up so soon after the event. But I did It, I sobbed on my bathroom floor. I realized how much I needed it at that moment. I needed this daily reminder to go easy on myself. (The healing process of any trauma can have you riddled with blame and self doubt) I needed this daily reminder that I was doing the best I can and it was ok to take a break for me. It reminded me that people can take your belongings even your sense of safety but they can never take the love that you hold inside of you…for others but especially for yourself. Thank you @fredandfar ?You can order it on @livvtv or directly thru them. ??

    Love you, DIna!

  • rhfan

    Not for nothing, but I wonder if Tre got Dinas approval to discuss this in her book? It’s Dinas story to tell.

  • donna

    Well, it was a horrible ordeal, & it’s gonna take a minute to get over it so.

  • ??????????Ð??Ð?e????

    I’m very sorry this happened to her but what is up with the pre-pubescent IG filter? Very off putting and makes her look immature and silly. JMO https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d17a6949d02a47fd3a45fa89c8d24b4ede1f29f5aaae57bdb4f0cc0bdf8bb1a3.png

      Yes, it is hard to take a woman of 40+ seriously when they post that pic with something that’s meant to be meaningful. I’m sure she’s gone thru a difficult time but the stars, etc make light of what she’s attempting to portray.

      That’s because she is.

    It’s so nice to see your posts Rox! 🙂 Its me, formerly Maru the Cat
    Poor Dina, its understandable that she would still be shaken. I hope she can find her way through this.

  • September24

    What an ordeal they went through. Horrible.

  • luvs2ride

    Your home is your sanctuary.
    I think it would take me a while to get over it if I was attacked.

  • samael

    The pain in her memories! I feel so bad for Dina, all the things that changed for her that day and for the rest of her life. Take care Dina.

  • Betty

    Dina? Who cares. Is her “boyfriend” still married?
