Danielle talks about her breast augmentation and the release of her duet with Lori Michaels.


Hello Everyone,

Episode 8 and still going strong!

I will hold true to what I mentioned in my last blog,  I’m not staying in the past, I just need to revisit it for a moment. Let me take a moment to quote what Dina has said in the past, or how about you just read it for yourself...

I would like to thank Dr. Kassir for assisting and taking me to Dr. Michael Fiorillo to help not only make me feel better about my self image, but to remove the implants that have been causing me years of pain. I cannot express strongly enough to those who are not aware of what can go seriously wrong in a breast augmentation, and how painful it truly can be. Especially when people make fun of a deformity caused by nature, cancer, or in my case, an encapsulation as severe as mine to please be mindful we all have feelings. I in no way want anyone to feel sorry for me. I put this out there because it’s real and to help others that may need me to be strong enough to do so.

I would highly recommend that if you are seeking an augmentation of any form, please get many opinions beforehand. And again, I’m extremely happy and grateful with the results of my fourth, and I do hope final corrective breast surgery. For more information go to:

Tune in for Watch What Happens Live as I will be performing my duet "Real Close" for the first time anywhere. This is not pre-recorded. This is raw, and real just like me. Much love to Lori Michaels for not only writing but performing this song with me, recording, and "staying" real close. Thank you to Andy Cohen for giving me this opportunity to shed a little light on another side of me.


I am overwhelmed by the positive responses and reviews I’ve had on my book, my memoir, The Naked Truth. I have a large upcoming signing tour, being scheduled as we speak. Keep a close eye on all of the locations I will be appearing to promote my book, the show the Real Housewives of NJ, my music, my daughters, and about my life. Please go to and follow me on twitter @daniellestaub

Please be on the watch for Jillian Marie (my daughter) and the release of her single "What You’re Talking About." The single should be digitally released on iTunes within the next couple of weeks. As for my daughter Christine, keep an eye out for her as she graces the runways and photo lenses of some of the best and world-renowned fashion designers and photographers. Congratulations to both of my daughters for completing their finals, with honors and heading into the 7th and 11th grade at the same parochial schools that they have been attending all of these years. We are all very blessed to have the support, love, and kindness of each and everyone of you.

Until next week, now, and always,
Love and Light,

Dina: What am I Doing Here?

Dina Manzo explains what it's like to sit on the reunion couch.

Hi all, 

I kind of meant what I said on that couch -- this show is so f---ed up. As I sit and watch the reunion, I wonder what goes through people's head sometimes. Bobby literally spitting on me as he screams at a friend of 10 years, Jim whipping out his files and then of all things says I have a fat ass, LOL! For what? Fame? I literally sat there saying to myself time and time again, "What the hell am I doing here?" Again, not ever saying I'm too good, but just different. There is something really beautiful that came out of this though...I am seeing some real proof of my practices. Take a look

Sending you a ton of love for your support! 

Dina xoxo
