Dina Manzo makes no apologies for anything that goes down on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
"You want to see the big hair and the tans and the screaming and the table flipping," she explained to me earlier today.
Or more to the point, "We're a bunch of wackos."
And nothing is more wacko than the never-ending drama with the show's resident villainess, Danielle Staub…
"We show the good, the bad and, when it comes to Danielle, the crazy," Manzo says. "You see in a trailer [for the upcoming second season], I called her a f--king nut. I don't call just anybody that."
When I propose that Staub have a charity boxing match with Snooki of The Jersey Shore, Manzo gets almost giddy. "I think Snooki would knock the s--t out of Danielle," she says. "I would love to see that happen."
What's definitely not happening anytime soon is another kid for Dina. A Twitter rumor hit the Web the other day claiming she was pregnant with her second child. She inadvertently fueled the rumor by twittering that she was going to name the baby after Watch What Happens Live's host and Bravo executive Andy Cohen.
"These lunatics started that rumor," Manzo explains. "Within seconds, I had like my 20,000 followers saying, 'Congratulations. We're so happy for you!' "
As for her 14-year-old daughter, Lexi, Manzo says we will not be seeing her as much this time around as we did the first season. "She's going into a new high school," mama Dina explains. "I just want her to be a kid…She looks so different now that no one recognizes her, so it's perfect."
Season two of the Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres on Monday. Will you be watching?
