The three part Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion is set to air this Sunday and RumorFix is reporting details to a very sensitive subjectâ€¦ claims that Dina Manzo has never acknowledged her autistic nephew Nicholas Laurita.
A source tells the site, â€œThe host Andy Cohen asked Dina â€˜Do you see Nicholas?â€™ to which she replied, â€˜No. Iâ€™ve never met him.â€™â€
â€œAndy continued prying, asking, â€˜I thought he had autism?â€™ Dina answered back, saying, â€˜Yeah but heâ€™s making progress every day. Sheâ€™s [Jacqueline] in an area that has a lot of resources, so itâ€™s not that bad.â€™â€
Sources say the other cast members looked shocked by Dina’s answers and Andy continued.
â€œDo you think youâ€™re ever going to meet him?â€ to which Dina claimed, â€œNo. Iâ€™ll just love him in my own way.â€
Dina responded to RF’s story on Twitter, writing, â€œNow thatâ€™s disgusting to omit what I really said~Children & parents r off limits to this BS & I know ur source that makes it worse.â€
Preview the reunion below.
