Dina Manzo claims Dolores Catania wrote a letter to release Tommy
Maybe this That’s why they aren’t as big as thieves anymore.
Former ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey‘ Dina Manzo claimed Dolores Catania was among those who wrote letters to support the release of her ex-husband, Tommy Manzo, from prison in May 2021 after he was arrested for allegedly orchestrating a violent home invasion and attack on Dina and her current husband, Dave Cantin.
It is well known that Dina’s estranged sister, Caroline Manzo, who is married to Tommy’s brother, Albert Manzo, stood up for her estranged brother-in-law when he was locked up, which caused the sisters to fall out.
But now Dina, 50, allegedly Catania, 51, has done the same, which could be the real reason the latter seems to be at odds with Dina’s best friend, Teresa Giudice.
“Both did it”, Dina replied to two Instagram users discussing whether it was Caroline, 60, or Catania who had written a pro-Tommy letter.
Catania did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
However, she told us about her relationship with Dina earlier this month, describing the storyline as two friends who simply broke up.
“Sometimes friendships have expiration dates. There’s no rhyme or reason why two people should always stay in each other’s lives. You don’t have to fight to be apart Catania explained, adding that she thinks her involvement with the Bravo reality show and Dina’s move to California didn’t help matters.
“But we didn’t argue,” she insisted.
Catania claimed that while she was not interested in reestablishing a friendship with Dina, the two have been cordial with each other at various events over the years.
“It’s not like any of us have done something so egregious to each other that we can never talk if we see each other in the same room,” she said.
Interestingly enough, Giudice said on the May 6 episode of Christian Gray Snow’s “The Slut Pig Podcast” that Catania wasn’t invited to her engagement party because “I know her and Dina don’t talk.”
Catania was also absent from Giudice’s 50th birthday celebration in Tulum, Mexico earlier this week as Dina took center stage.
On Monday’s episode of “The Morning Toast,” Catania’s ex-husband Frank Catania echoed Giudice’s sentiments, explaining, “Dina and Dolores won’t be in the same place.
“There was a problem with them for a few years. And I have to be honest, I don’t even know what it is exactly, but I know it’s deep,” he added. “And I also know that Teresa is Dina’s best friend. She’s good friends with Dolores, but I know she’s best friends with Dina.
It probably doesn’t help that Dolores and Caroline are still close.
