Dina Manzo

Dina talks fashion week, where she stands with Danielle, and "Zen Jen."

on May 17, 2010

I am SO proud of Gia, she ROCKED the catwalk as I knew she would. I just need to have a little talk with her about the "I'm too pretty to work comment"... LOL. I'm sure her Mama already spoke with her, but it wouldn't hurt hearing it again from Aunt Dina. I do think that she was just being cute and didn't mean it. She has heard us talk about Danielle saying that in the past.

As far as where I did stand with Danielle at this point, I quickly started to figure out that even though I was trying my best to give Danielle a chance, there were too many areas of my life that were being affected by still having her around in any way. My friends and family didn't like her and I was NOT about to fight with them over her. She was also causing tension between Lexi's family and myself, AND on top of that, I was hearing things that were really pissing me off. Jacqueline I'm sure will fill you in all of that. There were also many other invites from her and it was getting so hard to keep turning her down without the fear of her going nuts like she did last year when I didn't want to "hang" with her. I had told her that I wanted to take things slow and I needed time. She was pushing for a friendship that I wasn't ready for or even knew if I wanted.

I went to my friend "Zen Jen" as we call her for advice. (Visit Jen at www.zenjewelz.com to learn more about what she does. If you purchase anything from her give her the code "ladybug" and I will make sure that a donation is made to Project Ladybug with your purchase. She is also the designer that I purchased Jacqueline's fertility bracelet from last year.) Jen suggested that I meet with Danielle to tell her face-to-face how I felt. Ummm that is definitely an interesting meeting. You will have to tune in for that one and after that I will make it all VERY clear what went wrong and when. Put it this way, the restaurant that we filmed at could have used a good "smudging" after we left. Yes, I do believe in the power of smudging and clearing the air of negative energy with dry sage. Like I said, even if it doesn't physically do anything it makes you believe that it does and in return you feel better. When you feel and think good, you only attract more good into your life. Our minds are a VERY powerful tool. Use them wisely and only for good not EVIL ; ) (How many times did I say "good" in that paragraph? LOL)
