Real Housewives of New Jersey - Bye Dina


I'm actually quite sad that Dina has decided to leave the show...sadder than I really should be!  She has always been my favourite RHNJ especially after season one's final episode and Caroline's mafiosa speech.  I would like to think Bravo could give her a spinoff show but let's face it...she doesn't have that much going on right now.  I wonder if Danielle's insanity will seem stronger now without Dina's mellow demeanor.


Take care Grandma Wrinkles!

Have a fabulous day!

I am going to miss Grandma Wrinkles even more than Dina -- love that cat!

High Heeled Life said...

I was always on the fence regarding Dina ... but her cat was truly unique. It will be interesting to see who they bring in? I don't get Bravo - so I have to wait until it shows on Cnd. tv. - HHL

Whitney and the Preppy Puppy said...

I'm sad, too! Do you think Kim G. is going to take her place. Hubs has been watching with me and thinks she's been on a lot because Bravo is making her a regular RHONJ.

Suburban Princess said...

I do think KimG is trying very hard to be the new Housewife...I find her confusing...she seems much better than the lowlifes she is hanging out with.

Southern Lilly Lover said...

I love Dina! She was the only normal one. And Grandma Wrinkles was the best.
I can really understad why she left that crazy stuff; I would have as well!

Where do they find these crazies like Danielle and Kelly? I liked Dina's zen approach in her home. Don't you just love Andy and the after shows? IMHO they are almost better than the shows they are commenting on and funnier. Who knew Bethanny was so funny with the one liners? :) xoxo

I totally respect Dina's decision and I think she is a great person! I will miss watching her but it seems like she didn't have much going on!

I was bummed she decided to leave too, but I can't say I blame her. I will miss the calmness that she brought to the group!

About the girl: said...

This is one season that I didn't get too much into. New York (team Bethenny) and OC have been my favorites. But I do love that they are referenced as a mafia family, but I think Dina is a little dull and I agree that she doesn't have much going for her at the moment. So, bye Dine and good luck.

Princess Freckles said...

I was sad to see her leave too! Danielle is so insane, I wonder if she'll be back next season. Her craziness is getting old.

Seersucker Scrapper said...

I just watched this episode last night and can't say I am surprised. I would run for the hills to if I had to deal with Danielle.

That woman is insane!!!!

Kim Reese said...

I think Dina is the only sane one in the group. It's probably best for her to leave the show and focus on her family and "protect" them from Danielle. My goodness, Danielle pals around with ex-cons who are still on parole -- doesn't that say enough? I know I would run away from that just as fast I could...

Dina was also my favorite. I agree a spinoff would be interesting. She has lots going on business wise, so it could be interesting to watch as she plans wedding events at the Brownstone and kicks off a design business.

April said...

I am going to miss her too, she was my fac also. RHWONJ is the only season I watch.
I do think Kim G is going to take her place. I love how she sorta got on to Danielle about Danny before her b-Day party.

PinkPolkadotAA said...

So addicted to this show, it's not even funny. I will miss Dina, I loved watching her with her daughter. They seem to have a great relationship. I hope Kim G isn't her replacement, I think she looks plastic :)

North of 25A said...

OMG! Thank you for posting this - I will miss Dina too. I enjoy these shows WAY too much (I tell people that I think I am loosing - more - brain cells to compensate). I also love RHONY - of course. And who can forget Atlanta. The only one I really cannot handle is Orange County - just do not get those ladies. But, NY & NJ? I know women like that...really. And no Kim G. please!

Confessions of a Mother, Lawyer & Crazy Woman said...

Dina is my fave too. She seemed the most normal out of the bunch. Cat nonwithstanding.

New England Girl said...

I have only seen this show once or twice, so I can't be honest to say I'm upset... but I do always get a laugh out of the antics and fights they have on these shows.

TakingAChanceChick said...

I'm sorry but that is one scary looking cat! ....is that a cat? LOL

Beth Dunn said...

I liked her too, surprised she is leaving!

Meghan said...

Isn't it sad she is going?! I really like her.
Altho Jacqueline is my favorite.

BTW, I am a real Jersey housewife.
Maybe they could film me!!

Lipstick said...

You know, I have only seen one episode of this show. I loved the accents, but somehow I just kept forgetting when it came on. Now I know that is kind of crazy since it is cable after all and it probably comes on twenty times a week.

Grandma Wrinkles...perfect name.

Associate Girl said...

She was my fav. I saw a special about her wedding - her husband doesn't seem that nice.

Travelbugmom said...

OH my...do not watch Housewives, but totally could relate to THAT cat...friends have one....WIERD!!!!!!
