Dina Manzo Explains Why She's Not Returning To RHONJ For Season Seven!

Dina Manzo has kept herself busy since the last season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Most recently the philanthropist is about to launch her new skincare line, Glow by Dina. While promoting her new beauty product, Manzo revealed the real reason why she decided to turn down Bravo's offer to return to Season 7 of RHONJ!

"I [live] in L.A.," Manzo told Fox 411 in a recent interview. "I don't live in New Jersey anymore. I went through my divorce this year [and] I moved out to California, so it didn't make sense."

Manzo went on to explain that Bravo wanted her back for the show's seventh season – which will chronicle Teresa Guidice's return from prison.

"Of course, they asked me back," Manzo said. "I thought about it for a minute, and I thought 'How am I supposed to do this? I don't live there.' I have an apartment here in Manhattan but I don’t live in New Jersey, so I don't see how that could work."

Manzo's divorce from husband Tommy Manzo was finalized back in February. Their wedding was seen on VH1's My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding. Manzo is currently dating businessman David Cantin, 35. 

Just because Manzo's a Califonia resident, though, don't expect to see her on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or The Real Housewives of Orange County anytime soon. Manzo says reality TV isn't for her. 

"It wasn't what I thought I was getting myself into, and I realized that." Manzo explained. "I'm kind of the person that if it's not comfortable and it doesn't fit who I am, I walk. You have to be happy and if it doesn't sit well with your soul, you have to listen to that."

Dina Manzo is not the only New Jersey housewife who won't be back for season 7. Amber Marchese exclusively told People back in November that she wouldn't be returning – focusing instead on her second battle with cancer.
