Dina Manzo

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Dina Manzo has landed a role on a new series that portrays the behind-the-scenes on daily soap operas called Tainted Dreams. Celebuzz reports that Emmy-winning director Sonia Blangiardo created the show (General Hospital, As the World Turns, All My Children, One Life to Live), and casts Manzo as Allessandra DiGiacomo. Dina’s character is described as a “smart and successful New York City corporate CEO whose younger gay brother [played by My Big Gay Italian Wedding’s Anthony Wilkinson] will face unexpected circumstances due to his sexuality.”

Dina explains how she related to the character, “Coming from a large Italian family, I was immediately drawn to the character of Alessandra’s family dynamic.”

Director Blangiardo says, “I created the role of Alessandra with Dina Manzo in mind, and we are thrilled to have her join our cast. Her constant support of the gay community and her talent makes her the perfect choice for this series.”

Dina joins Tainted Dreams’ already announced castmembers, which include All My Children stars Alicia Minshew, Walt Willey Kelley and Michael Lowry; and As the World Turns stars Menighan Hensley and Marnie Schulenburg.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
