Addressing the drama!
Dina Manzo is shutting down the rumor mill after she posted “cryptic” messages about “walking away” on her Instagram Story as Teresa Giudice and Louie Ruelas tied the knot on Saturday, August 6.
It’s no secret that Dina skipped Teresa and Louie’s wedding. Rumor has it there has been a major falling out between the BFFs; however, an RHONJ insider tells us that’s not the case at all and that Dina’s decision not to attend the wedding has more to do with the cameras than anything else.
“Dina is uncomfortable with the cameras and told Teresa to begin with that if the wedding is taped – Dina will not attend the wedding. Teresa understands and knew that from the beginning. They are both very supportive of each other, and Teresa respects Dina’s wishes of not being around while the cameras are on. Dina is in a different place in her life and wants nothing to do with the cameras. Teresa is not upset, and they remain close friends and supportive of one another,” a source told AllAboutTRH last month.
Hours before Teresa and Louie tied the knot, the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum posted several spiritual posts that included quotes about “letting go” and having “the courage to know when to end things.”
Fans quickly picked up on the quotes and wondered if Dina was throwing shade at Tre. Well, Dina quickly clarified her posts and insisted that wasn’t the case at all.
A fan commented on Dina’s Instagram that she found “those cryptic messages [on] your story a little odd, considering the timing.”
The fan added: “I hope IF there was a falling out, you work it out. That’s a long friendship to give up on.”
Dina replied, “maybe if you followed me, you would know I post those DAILY. There’s life outside of reality TV.”
Despite Dina’s denial of any beef, it should be noted that Dina has yet to share a post on Instagram congratulating Teresa and Louie.
RHONJ will return for season 13 in late 2022 or early 2023.
