Dina explains why she was briefly on 'Team Danielle.'

on Jun 7, 2010


All I will say about "the talk" is that I went on my own, all by myself, and was SHOCKED to find out she had her thugs waiting there for me. She also had a bar full of them. I looked up for a brief second to see her cronies scary mugs starring me down. It did throw me for a loop, I'm not going to lie. I said in the one scene that I wasn't afraid of Danielle, and I wasn't. But after seeing the crowd she rolls with and the fact that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants, I can honestly say that I do fear for my safety. I didn't sign on for this, as a result of this show, a horrific person is now in my life who I just can't seem to shake. I think I may have had enough. Watch what happens.

On a much lighter note, I am usually tweeting during our show giving a play by play, but tonight I was at our Project Ladybug's 4th annual Ladies' Night out. 1200 woman gathered together under a huge tent at the Brownstone for a "Night in Morocco." I am so proud of what Ladybug has become and so thrilled to make a difference in the lives of these beautiful children battling this awful disease. Thank you all who support us. Visit www.projectladybug.org for more info on how you could help! Also, you may have noticed the red extension that I have been wearing in my hair. You could have one too! It's only $10 and all the proceeds go to help us build a rooftop playground at the hospital so the kids can feel like "kids" while receiving treatment. Visit www.luckylocks.org to find out more about it!

And last but not least, how awesome is my jewelry this year? Guess what? It's all for sale on www.dinamanzo.com. I am so thrilled to have my own line of fun affordable jewelry, check it out! Even the gorgeous square crystal ring is on there, it's one of my favorites. LOVE IT! Project Ladybug also has their own line of jewelry and all the proceeds go to the kids. Check out Euphoria NY's Red and Black collection on projectladybug.org it is GORGEOUS! And don't forget Ladybugs are good luck! We could all use a little bit of that AND the good Karma that comes along with supporting an amazing cause.

I will see all of you next week, I just wanted to take a minute to let you all know that your kind words mean THE WORLD to me. I love that I have made some of you think about getting rid of the negative in your life, as you can see it doesn't happen over night. It's a practice and certain situations can challenging, to say the least. I am still a work in progress, just as we all are.
