Dina Manzo Speaks About Jacqueline & Chris Laurita’s Autistic Son Nicholas


The three part Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion is set to air this Sunday and RumorFix is reporting details to a very sensitive subject… claims that Dina Manzo has never acknowledged her autistic nephew Nicholas Laurita.

A source tells the site, “The host Andy Cohen asked Dina ‘Do you see Nicholas?’ to which she replied, ‘No. I’ve never met him.’”

“Andy continued prying, asking, ‘I thought he had autism?’ Dina answered back, saying, ‘Yeah but he’s making progress every day. She’s [Jacqueline] in an area that has a lot of resources, so it’s not that bad.’”

Sources say the other cast members looked shocked by Dina’s answers and Andy continued.

“Do you think you’re ever going to meet him?” to which Dina claimed, “No. I’ll just love him in my own way.”

Dina responded to RF’s story on Twitter, writing, “Now that’s disgusting to omit what I really said~Children & parents r off limits to this BS & I know ur source that makes it worse.”

Preview the reunion below.

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.
