Dina Manzo proves again and again that when Teresa Giudice needs her BFF, she’s always there for her.
The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who’s been out promoting her skincare line Glow by Dina, sat down with E! and opened up about keeping in touch with Teresa during her time in prison.
Dina reveals that Teresa’s time away made their friendship stronger.
“We kept in touch via email like daily. As a matter of fact in some odd way, I think it brought us closer because not many people had email access to her,” Dina dishes.
“I was one of the chosen ones,” Dina joked.
The BFF’s kept their conversation light hearted sticking to “girl talk” to make Tre’s time behind bars easier. In fact, Dina says made a point to make Teresa laugh since she was one of few people Teresa knew she could confide in.
“She was telling me about her exercise and checking in because I was seeing Audriana [Giudice] and Joe [Giudice] a lot. We didn’t get deep. It was just keeping it light and moving her right through it.”
It seems like prison may have brought the two BFF’s even closer in another way. Dina, who is known to be a Zen goddess, can now share that with Teresa, who found her own Zen in prison with the help of yoga. During her time in jail, Teresa developed a love for yoga and is currently working on her certification to become an instructor.
Plus it seems like Teresa is taking her post-prison mindset from The Secret, which I’m sure Dina approves of, as she discussed the power of positive thinking in her memoir Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate And Back Again.
“If you put out what you want, sometimes you get it. Never say, ‘I can’t do that,’ because then you’re already bringing yourself down,” Teresa wrote. Namaste bitches!
I LOVE that Dina and Tre are still such good friends after all these years. You could always tell how genuine their bond was, and I’m just happy they’ve stuck by each other. Now if only Dina would come back to RHONJ….
