The three part RHONJ reunion is set to begin airing this Sunday and the reunion secrets are beginning to be spilled. RumorFix is reporting that a very sensitive conversation occurred at the reunion involving Dina Manzo discussing her nephew Nicholas, who is the autistic son of Jacqueline Laurita.
A source is reporting that “The host Andy Cohen asked Dina ‘Do you see Nicholas?’ to which she replied, ‘No. I’ve never met him.’’
Andy continued to pry Dina about Nicholas Laurita.‘‘I thought he had autism?’ Dina answered back, saying, ‘Yeah but he’s making progress every day. She’s [Jacqueline] in an area that has a lot of resources, so it’s not that bad.’”
Then Andy continued, “Do you think you’re ever going to meet him?” to which Dina claimed, “No. I’ll just love him in my own way.”
The rest of the RHONJ cast seemed to be shocked and uncomfortable with the conversation and with Dina’s comments. No word if this scene will be shown on the reunion or if it will stay on the cutting room floor.
Rumorfix tweeted the story to Dina and Dina immediately responded by making it seem like the statements weren’t true and that this “source” is someone Dina knows.
In my opinion this whole conversation either never happened or is being completely twisted. I don’t think Dina or any of the Housewives would ever speak badly about Nicholas. Even if Dina has never met Nicholas or doesn’t know him at all he’s still her nephew. I don’t think Dina would ever talk badly about Nicholas especially if she ever hopes to reconcile with her brother Chris. It’s actually disgusting that a little boy is being used by these so called “sources” to fuel the feud between Dina and Jacqueline. Obviously this “source” was at the RHONJ reunion taping and I wonder if it was either another housewife or a friend of one of them either way this source is a horrible person.
Do you think Dina really said these comments about Nicholas? Who do you think the “source” behind this story is?
