Dina Manzo and Teresa Giudice rekindled their friendship while filming season 6 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but according to a new report, Dina has ulterior motives, and doesn’t have the best intentions.
“As viewers of the Real Housewives of New Jersey know, Teresa and Dina are very close,” an insider tells RadarOnline. “Dina has cozied up to Teresa as she deals with her looming prison sentence and the possibility of her husband, Joe, being deported.”
But off screen the source says, “Teresa has been warned by their mutual friends to be very careful as far as Dina is concerned because she has ulterior motives. … [Namely,] using Teresa to become a central part of the show, and replacing her sister Caroline as the voice of reason among the cast.”
“It’s just sad for Teresa because she really is a very trustworthy person, and doesn’t want to believe that Dina would use her, or betray her trust in any way,” the show insider shared.
The insider warns that Dina’s feud with her family members should be a red flag for Teresa, who doesn’t need the drama right now.
“All of this drama is the last thing that Teresa needs at this time,” the source said. “And it doesn’t help that newest cast member, Amber Marchese’s husband, Jim, has been ranting and raving on the show that he is friends with the attorney general prosecuting Teresa’s case. It’s not even the Attorney General who is handling Teresa and Joe’s case, and there is absolutely no proof that Jim is pals with the United States Attorney who is handling it.”
