'Real Housewives of NJ': Dina Manzo to exit the show

Bravo can be very sneaky in their previews. Fans were taken aback when during the last episode of " The Real Housewives of New Jersey," a commercial announced that one of the housewives was "leaving forever." Now, we know who it is.

A source close to the cast has confirmed to Zap2it that Dina Manzo is leaving the show.

We have contacted Dina for confirmation, but she didn't respond to our request. But when we talked to Dina right after news broke that cast mate and best friend, Teresa Giudice, had filed for bankruptcy, we had a feeling that she had fallen out of love with the series. It seemed the Danielle Staub debacle at the benefit for the baby with cancer was all that she could take. Dina runs her own charity, Project Ladybug, for children with life-threatening diseases and it hit her hard.
