Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo is officially divorced from her husband Tommy Manzo.
“I am, yes,” Manzo told RadarOnline. She also revealed that the divorce has been official for about two months, and that it was not an easy process saying goodbye to Tommy.
“Divorce is never easy,” Dina confessed. “It was a very emotional divorce for me.”
“Of course it’s heartbreaking, but things happen the way they’re supposed to,” she said. “It was a long time coming. I think we just both had different ideas of what a marriage should be.”
However, Dina has moved on and has a new life with her boyfriend Dave Cantin and now lives in California.
“We’re both heavily involved in pediatric cancer — [we met] through a project for that,” Manzo said. “I guess it’s been about a year now.”
“He’s just the most loving man,” she said. “He’s really an awesome person and very caring. He treats my family so good, and he’s a great dad to his kids and I see that, how important that is.”
But Dina makes one thing clear, she isn’t rushing into another marriage.
“I’m not even thinking that,” she noted. “We’re just having a good time and building our life together. Literally as you know, two months out of divorce, I’m just focused on staying in a happy stage right now.”
The new couple splits their time between New Jersey and California.
“He’s bicoastal — he goes back and forth,” she said. “I don’t go back and forth as much. My daughter comes here to visit me and my mom was just here. I go back maybe once a month.”
Manzo is also focusing on her new skincare line, Glow by Dina, which will officially launch on Mother’s Day.
