Real Housewife of NJ Dina Manzo ‘shaken’ after Holmdel attack
Fans and the RHONJ cast are sending well wishes to a former star of ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey‘ and her boyfriend, who were beaten and robbed in a recent brutal home invasion in Monmouth County.
Dina Manzo and David Cantin released a statement through their lawyer that they are “obviously shaken up from the traumatic and violent” crime. Speaking to PEOPLE magazine, the attorney added, “They are grateful to law enforcement and the other emergency responders and appreciate everyone’s concern and well-wishes.”
Before the Saturday night attack, the couple attended a First Communion party for one of Teresa Giudice‘s daughters, Audriana. The fellow RHONJ star and the show’s Twitter account both tweeted Monday, asking fans to pray for Manzo.
Please say a prayer tonight for my sister @dinamanzo

There also has been extra drama surrounding the case, as ex-RHONJ co-stars James and Amber Marchese taunted the victims and Manzo’s daughter, Lexi, on Twitter.

Monmouth County authorities continue to investigate the violent attack, which involved at least two suspects.
Proud Jersey Girl Erin Vogt’s first reporting gig involved her Fisher Price tape recorder. As a wife and momma of two kiddies, she firmly believes that life’s too short to drink bad coffee. A fan of the beach, Dave Grohl and karma, in no particular order.
