The feud between Dina Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, and Caroline Manzo heated up after the first part of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion aired, and Caroline Manzo had a chance to rebut Dina’s version during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Not to be outdone, Dina posted a short video on youtube, while Jacqueline Laurita snuck into the bathroom, locked the door, pulled a phone out from behind a tile where she hides it from Chris and began to tweet. That’s how I imagine it anyway. After a string of tweets last night, Jacqueline took to twitter this morning to make amends – sort of. She tweeted:
I know Dina got slammed w/haters last night.I was upset too after watching RHONJ, but now I’d like to move on. Points been made. Only hurt left.
I guess that set Dina off – because she lost her Zen.
@JacLaurita You are using your son against me and that is sickening. I was only slammed by those u try to manipulate. Smart ones see thru u @JacLaurita forget my name for real and move on to your next target. Get the psychiatric help you need. Now I’m DONE
Then Dina addressed her fans.
So appreciate the support & kind words but let’s end this. I am moving on & will focus on my family that loves me!
I’ve never taken this to social but I have my breaking points. I’m human. Leaving for a retreat so other than schedules post I’ll be offline
Hey – she didn’t tweet and delete. That’s progress for her!
Jacqueline has to have the last word of course, but she must have been on new meds, because she decided to kill Dina with kindness. Okay – I was kidding about the kindness.
I think when people don’t have real love in their lives they become bitter&lash out at those that do.It’s a jealousy that’s hard to control.
I need 2 feel sorry for those people&understand their bitterness.Instead of getting angry,I need 2 just pray they find inner peace.It’s hard
Listen peeps! U love reality tv.This doesn’t get more real than this.U all argue w/people too.Some even w/me.We r all human&we all get mad.
Sometimes it’s hard2let go when you are upset,but with time,u get over it. Life continues on and you learn a thing or 2. It’s human nature.
(anyone spurting out their coffee yet?)
All I know is that I want to do good on this earth & help as many people as I can. We can all relate & learn from each other.Always evolving.
Well – thank you for that lesson on self improvement Jacqueline.
Caroline must have gotten everything off her chest last night on WWHL because she was silent on twitter today, proving once again that she’s just a little more in control than the other two. Thank goodness.
So did Dina say anything malicious about her nephew, Nicholas, a child on the autistic spectrum? I didn’t think so, but if you dislike Dina I’m sure you can find fault in what she said. Kathy Wakile seemed to rebut or correct her during the reunion as she was talking about finding nothing but joy when she saw Nicholas (presumably on camera) and it wasn’t like he was hooked up to machines in bed. She also said something about him not understanding the situation between the adults, so he was less affected by it than say his older brother or her daughter Lexi. She clarified later that she meant because of his age.
Anyone who is leading others to believe my “doesn’t understand” comment was about anything other than age should be ashamed of themselves
But Jacqueline was hurt – and that set her twitter peeps into a frenzy and they went after Dina. Jacqueline has the right to her own feelings. Commenting on someone’s child is a lose-lose situation and Dina should have said “no comment.” She doesn’t know this child – who cares how SHE feels when she sees him.
As for Kathy Wakile – Dina unfollowed her on twitter after the reunion aired, saying;
@KathyWakile unfollowing so I don’t see you favor all the nasty tweets. But you’re sweet at pie right?
Ironically, Dina told Kathy to not talk about Teresa Giudice’s legal issues during the reunion, after Andy showed a clip with Kathy’s mom saying something like if you do bad things it’ll catch up to you, and Teresa was offended. You see, it’s okay for Dina to talk about her relationship with her family when they aren’t there to tell their side of the story, but Kathy isn’t allowed to talk about Teresa’s legal problems on camera. Kathy, being Kathy, sent a tweet back to Dina:
I struggle to sum up this blog with something meaningful, but at the end of the day I have to admit to myself that I’m part of the problem for tuning in to this crapfest. I didn’t make these people into what they are, but enabling their behavior/exploitation on national TV by not only viewing the show but blogging about it – does that make me no better than them? Do I really find them entertaining?
On that cheery note, it’s election day. Go out and VOTE. (No politics talk on the blog please.)
