Dina Manzo broke her silence after studying Caroline Manzo wrote a letter in support of her ex-husband, Tommy Manzoafter his allegedly vicious attack on her and her husband, Dave Cantin.
After first “liking” a post about Caroline’s betrayal over the weekend, the former Real New Jersey housewives Performer responded to a post shared by their personal assistant, Luke McKibbenas her daughter Lexi Loannousuggested Caroline as a “bad sister”.
“For years I sat and watched Dina repeatedly take the country road. Keep silent for many reasons, but mostly out of respect for the family. There are a million things I could have said and uttered over the years to defend them. She would forbid me to say a word. But I can’t stay silent while others keep talking to keep their relevance, ”Luke wrote in his message according to a screenshot shared by Comments by Bravo.
“You will reap what you sow. And I think that’s extremely fitting, after all, it’s your most famous words, ”he continued, along with a meme from Caroline and Tommy that said they were“ fat as thieves ”.
After seeing what Luke had written, Dina said that although she would “normally” ask him to delete the message, she was done keeping silent about her sister’s behavior.
“I’m starting to think that some are just expecting us to stay calm while they keep hurting others … that’s what gives them that ‘strength’,” she explained. “I’ll say it again … it’s not okay to take kindness for weakness.”
“And if I don’t laugh at this point, I’ll just keep crying. I love you,” she added.
Lexi also left a comment on Luke’s post that read, “Somebody had to say it.”
In another screenshot shared by Comments by Bravo, Dina responded to a meme the Bravo Gypsy shared on Instagram.
“Caroline outside my house after seeing my meme defend Dina,” read the message as Caroline looked out the window at her SUV.
“It really helps to laugh at this whole thing, so THANK YOU because that literally made me a LOL,” Dina told the fan page.
In addition to replying to Luke’s Instagram post, Lexi went to her Instagram Stories where she shared some narrative messages about her aunt, the first of which contained a meme.
“Dina Manzo sits back and watches as the Bravo fans realize what a bad sister Caroline Manzo is,” read the meme.
Then Lexi wrote “literally” with a second meme that included the phrase “thick as thieves”.
Tommy is accused of hiring a man to attack Dave in 2015. He is also accused of breaking into Dina and Dave’s duplex with another man, beating Dave with a bat, and stealing expensive rings from the couple.
