How terrifying! Former ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star Dina Manzo and her millionaire boyfriend were reportedly beaten and bound by robbers inside his Holmdel, NJ home on Saturday, May 13, and we have all the scary details here. Keep reading!
We can’t even believe we’re writing this, but former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo, 46, and her millionaire boyfriend, David Cantin, 37, were severely injured during a brutal home invasion on Saturday, May 13, NBC News reports. Dina and David have since been hospitalized, as David was reportedly attacked with a baseball bat and Dina was punched in the face — multiple times — by two individuals, who were already inside their Holmdel, NJ home, when they returned in the evening.
After the attack, they were bound together with their faces covered. And that’s when the intruders reportedly stole cash and jewelry from David’s home before they fled. David quickly called the police at 10:54 p.m. after freeing himself. Then, they rushed to the hospital, where he and Dina were treated for facial injuries.
Dina, who currently lives in California, traveled to New Jersey in order to attend Teresa Giudice‘s daughter, Audriana‘s, christening earlier that day. She and Teresa even posted multiple pictures from the event on their Instagram pages, but thus far, neither RHONJ star has said anything about the robbery. Dina and David’s attorney, however, told HollywoodLife.com: “Dina and David are obviously shaken up from the traumatic and violent home invasion and robbery. No one should ever have to go through what they did. They are grateful to law enforcement and the other emergency responders and appreciate everyone’s concern and well-wishes.”
