Dina Manzo Dating Younger Millionaire Car Dealership Owner


DailyMail.com:
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo has a new man in her life, Daily Mail Online can reveal.

The housewife, who left the show after season two but returned for season six, has been secretly dating millionaire car dealership owner, Dave Cantin, 35, a man eight years her junior.

Dina, 43, announced her separation from her husband of seven years, Tommy, back in February. She has a 17-year-old daughter from her first marriage. Cantin separated from his wife, Melissa, more than a year ago and filed for divorce in January.

Until recently he was co-owner and vice president of the hugely successful Hyundai dealership Brad Benson Auto Group based in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey. The dealership was sold in July, after 16 years, and Cantin is now a commercial broker.

Speaking to Daily Mail Online Cantin confirmed the relationship but stressed that Dina was not the cause of his split from his wife. He said: 'I've been separated for more than a year and met Dina after that separation. I filed for divorce in January.'

Dina has been separated from Tommy for two years though the couple have yet to finalize their divorce.

Tommy Manzo told Daily Mail Online: 'We've been separated for two years and we're going through finalizing our divorce hopefully in the next few weeks. Now she has her boyfriend, I have my girlfriend we've moved on with our lives.'

Now Dina has abandoned her New Jersey roots and moved to California, funded, according to sources close to the couple, by her younger 'sugar-daddy' who has been footing the bill for the self-proclaimed, 'damned talented event planner, hostess and designer,' since the couple hooked up together more than a year ago.

Just two months ago the star, whose show tagline was, 'I'm back to bring the zen. Namaste bitches!' posted an image on her Instagram account boasting of her swanky Californian rental and stating, 'Never thought my zip code would be #90210.'
Hey, I'm just shocked that they actually got a quote from the forever-reclusive Tommy.
