What Teresa Giudice thinks about Dina Manzo skipping the wedding

Dina Manzo will not be attending Teresa Giudice’s wedding to Luis Ruelas in August, Page Six can confirm.

However, the bride-to-be has “no problem” with the
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” alum and is “okay with it,” a source tells Us exclusively.

“Teresa respects Dina’s wishes and looks forward to celebrating with her in the future,” a source said. “They remain as close as ever.”

There has been speculation online recently about whether a rumored rift between Manzo’s husband David Cantin and Ruelas is to blame for the former reality TV star’s planned absence from the nuptials in come.

However, our source says the rumors are false and notes that the men are still following each other on social media as proof of their connection.

We’re told that Manzo chose not to attend because she doesn’t want to film.

The insider notes that there’s “a very high likelihood the wedding will be filmed” — although Bravo has yet to make an official announcement — and “Dina has made it clear that she doesn’t want to be filmed, and Teresa is okay with that.”

Manzo, 50, starred on “RHONJ” from 2009 to 2010, then briefly returned in 2014 before quitting reality TV for good and moving to Los Angeles.

In late June, Giudice, also 50, told Page Six that her wedding day would “definitely not” be in “RHONJ” Season 13, but teased, “We’ll see” when told. asked about a special on Bravo.

Although Manzo didn’t show up at the reality TV wedding of the year, she took part in several of the couple’s celebrations leading up to the New Jersey ceremony.

The former ‘RHONJ’ star and her husband were with Giudice and Ruelas, 46, in Greece when they got engaged in October 2021. She was also present for the engagement party, which prevented the other friend of Giudice, Dolores Catania, to receive an invitation.

Manzo revealed on social media that she and Catania, 51, had a falling out after the latter allegedly wrote a letter supporting the release of her ex-husband, Tommy Manzo, from prison in May 2021. Tommy said was arrested for allegedly orchestrating a violent outbreak and attack on Dina and Cantin, 42.

Before Page Six learned that Dina jumped on Giudice’s wedding, insiders confirmed to us that the Bravolebrity alum was in the running to be the “Turning the Tables” author’s bridesmaid.

Now that Dina will no longer be present, it is unclear who will take over the role.

Ruelas’ sisters and Giudice’s daughters with ex-husband Joe Giudice – Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16 and Audriana, 12 – are expected to make up the rest of the wedding.

Representatives for Teresa and Dina did not immediately return requests for comment.
