Dina Manzo tells the real score why she quit ‘The Real Housewives of NJ’

Everything boiled down to Danielle Staub and her drama.

Fans of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” were stunned when reality TV star Dina Manzo announced her plans to leave the show.

In an interview with celebrity news source Us Magazine, Manzo cited that 99.9% of her decision came from co-star Danielle Staub and the “drama created by her.” Manzo said that the final straw came during the May 31 episode where Staub was being followed by an ex-con bodyguard. Things went a little awry when Staub’s bodyguard uttered a bad word against Manzo’s nephew.

Manzo cited that she signed on with the show because it had a nice family theme. Many things have changed as the show progressed and all they ever talked about was the life of Staub.
