Meet Dina Manzo’s New Boyfriend Dave Cantin

Dina

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo has said goodbye to her home state and hello to California, but that’s not all… she also has a new man in her life! Dina has been dating 35 year-old Dave Cantin who was was co-owner and vice president of the hugely successful Hyundai dealership Brad Benson Auto Group based in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey. The dealership recently sold and now he is a commercial broker in California.

Cantin filed for divorce from his wife Melissa in January, and claims he has been separated from his wife for more than a year. He confirmed his relationship with Dina to the Daily Mail. “I’ve been separated for more than a year and met Dina after that separation. I filed for divorce in January.”

Tommy Manzo told the site that his divorce with Dina is almost finalized. “We’ve been separated for two years and we’re going through finalizing our divorce hopefully in the next few weeks. Now she has her boyfriend, I have my girlfriend we’ve moved on with our lives.”

But the site reports that sources close to Manzo and Cantin say that Dina’s move out West was paid for by her younger boyfriend, who she started seeing over a year ago.

“He’s her sugar-daddy. He’s the one who’s put her up in California. She lived in Malibu for a while but now she’s in Beverly Hills and he’s paying the bills,” a source tells the site. “He flies out to be with her and stays at her place and she goes back and forth between California and New Jersey a lot to see him. She stays in a hotel when she visits.”

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.

    Ugh!

  • Jake

    OMG let her join RHOBH so she can call out the BS

  • RealSandy

    So, his business is still in NJ, but he pays for her to stay in Beverly Hills, CA so he can visit from time to time? Hmm. That is a nice arrangement Dina. Kim from Atlanta would have been jealous back in her Big Poppa days. They are a good-looking couple even so. I still wonder how long this kept woman relationship can last.

  • What happened to needing to be by Lexi’s side in NYC? Guess now that she’s got her on gig going on she’ll move on with her own life now:)

    • RealSandy

      I thought the same thing….

  • Coochie-Coochie

    I want a Big Poppa like that

  • I always liked Dina, from the very first episode. I thought she was funny, had me laughing a few times. I like the fact that she is loyal to her friends, and I didn’t like that Jaqo wasn’t loyal to her. The whole return to NJ was odd, and I think all of the new girls made it too off to really get to know her again I don’t really care if she is someone’s mistress, neither of them are married to someone else. It doesn’t seem like she is whoring around with any guy she meets anywhere in the world like other housewives her age. Having her on BH would be great. Better fit than NJ, IMO. Some men want the women they love to be OK while they settle things. she became a very successful business person and I am sure she has the ability to make her own money. And, it is so possible she is living from her own money now.

    • Sally

      I like Dina as well, not sure what is wrong with her, when everything happened with Jacks She bowed out, I think that says a lot about her character. He isn’t exactly 23 either!

      • Krista

        I totally agree Sally. I think those expressing negativity are doing so because she is Teresa’s friend.

        • Sally

          Krista, I like you but I don’t want to get involved in an argument with another poster. That happened to me on another site and I won let it happen again! I know we agree on Teresa but we will see what happens when she gets out I hope for the four beautiful girls sake she turns things round and starts repaying her debts. I will never ever support Joe.

          • Krista

            Oh I’m sorry Sally. I understand. I was just agreeing that I don’t understand what is so bad about Dina because I don’t see anything either. I don’t want anything to start for you or me either. We already experienced that. I like you too.

      • RealSandy

        I liked Dina on her own show. I do not dislike Dina. I am quite surprised at this, considering her daughter living in New Jersey, and there is no mention of Lexi. It all looks strange to me.
        Those who draw conclusions as a dig to me re: my feeling that Teresa has shown no remorse as of yet are just plain ignorant. I am sick and tired of being picked on in here by a certain someone who just doesn’t like me based on my one post about Tre who then kisses up to my friends here. It is so juvenile. Sally, you are my friend. I refuse to interact with that other poster who attacked me and my friend Beth.

        • Sally

          Sandy, you are my friend and sometimes we don’t agree and that’s fine but you are my friend!

          • Sally

            I just checked and Lexi is at college in New York, Fordham unless that info was wrong. Good night now!

            • RealSandy

              I thought she may be in college. It just seems odd to move so far away when he owns a car dealership in NJ and has to be here and now have a bicoastal relationship. Night Sally, my friend.

              • RealSandy

                I reread it. I missed that he sold his dealership. He must be in NJ to finalize his divorce then…it never said he had children. He is 35 and Dina is how much older…over ten years? I do not know. He had a very profitable business. He stays in NJ and works in CA. This article makes little sense.

                • lila fowler

                  I didn’t think that he actually owned the dealership, just had an executive position there.

                  • RealSandy

                    I am pasting the above to clarify that it says he was co-owner and VP:

            She also used foul language, ageist and prejudicial remarks and questioned another’s ethics and never apologized, etc. It sickens me.
            I will return to commenting elsewhere and remove myself from any comment near that other person. It disgusts me how low some will go on a comment site with another disagrees with them. it is only fine as long as you do. Then to keep putting digs in to add insult to injury and over… Sally, I am your friend no matter who you choose to befriend here. I won’t comment further to avoid added insults from the other to my otherwise perfect day.

            • Sally

              Sandy, I just want you to be happy! Just avoid each other and certainly don’t let someone else’s comments get to you. I have been there and worn the hat and asked why. Biggest mistake of my cyber life! I should have just ignored. Sometimes people are just so different there is no chance of them ever agreeing on anything. You know I want to give Teresa another chance and I know neither you or Beth think she should have one. That’s ok!!!!! I do understand people thinking the same as you. I’m just the eternal optimist!
              I’m not arguing with anyone on a blog and I think you are a very kind thoughtful person! I also think we have a lot in common especially our old age of 89!! I am off to sleep now as its 11.30 but I just wanted to make sure you were ok!

  • lila fowler

    The article states that the new guy is now a commercial broker in California. So why is he flying back and forth between there and Jersey?

  • myst7

    I must B the only 1 who can not stand Dina I have looked in her Ladybug charity and wouldn’t B surprised if people find out that she misappropriated the funds from that charity 4 her shoe collection

  • Real Sandy⛱

    She stays at a hotel? Well, it looks like they have a place in Holmdel, NJ now, and I guarantee that it is not too shabby either. Too bad it appears that they have enemies in the Garden State.
