None of Teresa Giudice’s current Real Housewives of New Jersey costars will be a part of her August wedding, but Tre’s former costar/ BFF Dina Manzo will be standing by her side.
According to former RHONJ villain Kim DePaola, Dina will serve as Teresa’s Maid of Honor on her big day in August.
“I found out she’s getting married in August, Teresa. She’s getting married in August,” Kim said on a recent episode of the “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef” podcast.
“Dina Manzo is the Maid of Honor,” she added before noting that she has the “inside scoop.”
It’s no secret that Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga will not be one of her eight bridesmaids. Kim believes that Teresa’s bridal party will be made up of Teresa’s four daughters as well as Louie Ruelas’ sisters.
“I would definitely say Luis’ sisters. There’s no question,” she said. “I would say her daughters, too.”
Kim claims Teresa is highly concerned with “optics” and notes that she would “bet” Louie’s brother serves as his Best Man while his sons serve as his groomsmen.
She adds that she could see Dina’s husband, Dave Cantin being a groomsman as well.
“Even Dina’s husband might be in it because they’re very close, the four of them,” she explained. “They were just in Vegas together, celebrating one of their birthdays.”
As for Joe and Melissa Gorga, Kim says Teresa will invite them “because Teresa has to show face.”
“She has to invite them,” she said. “Trust me; if she didn’t have to, they wouldn’t be [invited]. I know it. I know it. If she did not have to invite them, she would not.”
When it comes to Dolores Catania, who we revealed wasn’t invited to Teresa and Louie’s engagement party, Kim says she might score an invite to the wedding.
“Dolores has got a shot,” she said. “Dolores is like 80/20 she’ll be invited — unless Teresa sees something on the show that she doesn’t like that Dolores did or said.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
