Dina Manzo's 49th birthday is a few days away — but why wait to celebrate? "My birthday is Sunday [March 7] but the celebrations have begun!" The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum wrote in an Instagram Story from Wednesday, March 3. "I never like to celebrate my birthday but ... it's been a tough year and fun lighthearted times are needed!"
As such, the Etsy seller kicked off the festivities with flower-strewn dinner party at Mastro's. Posting a snap from the delicious night out, Dina wrote: "Book club birthday outing." But it seems that she had two extra guests.
Teresa Giudice captured a video of the birthday girl blowing out the candles on a plate of desserts, and she tagged her boyfriend Louie Ruelas as well. Looking positively glowing, Dina gazed down at her sampling of sweets.
The plate held Mastro's famous warm butter cake, along with its chocolate cake and cheesecake. "Every dessert on the menu!" a guest said in Teresa's video. The birthday indulgences weren't limited to dessert: Teresa's snaps also showed off a decadent seafood tower.
Last year, Dina celebrated her 48th birthday by proudly owning her Instagram filter. "When it’s your 48th Birthday you’re allowed to post a selfie with a filter that smoothes out any and all wrinkles," she wrote. "It’s just the Instagram law."
