Teresa Giudice claims she and Dina Manzo have remained on good terms with one another in recent years, despite Dina not attending her August 2022 wedding to Luis Ruelas. But a new “like” on Instagram seems to hint at drama between them.
As the Real Housewives of New Jersey star continues to shut down rumors of a potential feud, Dina has been caught “liking” a post shared by Kelly Dodd, in which the Real Housewives of Orange County alum shades Teresa’s Namaste B$tches podcast co-host, Melissa Pfeister, as a “loser” and a “fan girl.”
In a screenshot shared by Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram on February 10, Kelly was seen taking aim at Teresa’s co-host, while assuring the RHONJ cast member that she “still [loves]” her.
“I don’t know who this loser [Melissa Pfeister] is with her [35,000] followers … She’s a fan girl acting like a Bravolebrity. I’m qualified to recap [and] chime in when I want. I know Brandi very well. Get your facts straight before you comment about things you don’t know,” Kelly had written in the caption of the post “liked” by Dina, which featured her addressing the drama surrounding Brandi Glanville reportedly being axed from season four of Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip after allegedly touching Caroline Manzo in inappropriate places.
“Tune in for the rest of my Daily Smash on YouTube [and] I still love you [Teresa Giudice],” Kelly added.
At the end of last year, after reports claimed Dina and Teresa suffered a falling out over drama involving their respective husbands, Dave Cantin and Luis, Teresa appeared on the Two Ts in a Pod podcast, where she insisted she and Dina were “all good,” saying that the only reason Dina didn’t attend her wedding is because she didn’t want to be on camera.
“Once you are on TV and then you aren’t on TV anymore, you don’t want to be in front of the camera. I totally get it,” Teresa stated. “It’s like you’re working, and you don’t want to work. Unless you are getting paid. And the thing is not that she wanted to even get paid, but I get it. And her husband doesn’t want to be on camera. I respect that.”
And one month later, Dina addressed their potential tension, saying on Instagram that they were “never not friends.”
“We were never not friends,” she told a fan. “Sometimes friendships go [through phases] but in the end, true friendships will always find their way back when the time is right.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
