Claudine "Dina" J. Manzo (nee Laurita; born March 7, 1971) is an American reality television cast-member, known for starring in The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Besides appearing on the show, Manzo has appeared on the television shows Mad Fashion in 2011 and Dina's Party on HGTV.

Early Life

Dina Manzo, the youngest of 11 children, was born in Brooklyn, New York, but was raised in New Jersey from the age of six. While raised Catholic, the journey of adulthood inspired her to dive deeper into spirituality, exploring many traditions and paths to peace.

Career

Motherhood and her passion for philanthropy inspired her to proudly found Project Ladybug, a 501c3 non-profit organisation. To date, Project Ladybug has raised over one million dollars to help children with cancer. Dina also has great love for the care and protection of animals.

After appearing on Season 1 and part of Season 2 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dina took a break from Bravo. She took advantage of this quality time to focus on her daughter Lexi, to grow Project Ladybug, and to enjoy two seasons of her own show on HGTV called Dina's Party. She returned to Bravo with renewed enthusiasm, a desire to share her personal growth and a hope that others will be inspired to start, or continue, their own journey.

Dina has also worked as an event planner at the Brownstone banquet facilities in Paterson, New Jersey.

Personal Life

Dina has been married twice. Her first husband was George Hadjiapostoli, with whom she has a daughter, Alexia Hadjiapostoli (Manzo). Her second husband, Tommy Manzo, runs and manages the Brownstone with his older brother, Albert Manzo. Dina is now separated from her second husband.
