It looks like the Manzo family is welcoming another adorable addition! Well, temporarily at least. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/9c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Dina Manzo and her daughter recently shared that Lexi is fostering an adorable puppy named Blondie. Lexi shared the news with her followers in a series of heart-melting Instagram Stories where she introduced her new furry little friend. (By the way, Blondie is available for adoption!) 

“World, meet Blondie. Blondie, meet world,” Lexi captioned one of the photos. “Fostering her through the Labelle Foundation if you want to adopt, please apply through them.” 

She also shared another photo of Blondie patiently sitting on the carpet. “I. Can’t. Deal. With. The. Cuteness.” Lexi wrote.

Dina also shared the news, adding a call to action to see if any of her followers might soon become Blondie’s permanent family. “My daughter @bohochicken is fostering this beauty,” Dina wrote. “Is she your new baby??? Contact @thelabellefoundation.”

Blondie is not the first dog the animal-loving mother-daughter duo has provided a foster home for. More than 10 years ago, Dina fostered a chihuahua who was born without any front legs. In a 2018 Instagram post, she explained that although she was “only supposed to foster her to get her away from the immediate danger of being put down by the ignorant people who bred her father and sister in attempt to get the perfect chihuahuas to profit from,” she adopted the sweet little dog and named her Grace. 

In 2019, Dina fostered a dog named Remington who had suffered significant birth defects as a result of inbreeding. She had hoped to keep him forever, but explained that her dog Lil Mama unfortunately “had a very negative reaction to him.”
