RHONJ’s Dina Manzo celebrates three-year wedding anniversary with husband after ex charged with ‘plotting his assault’ – The Sun

REAL Housewives of New Jersey alum Dina Manzo celebrated her three-year wedding anniversary with her husband.

The happy occasion followed her ex-husband being charged with "hiring" a man to "assault" her now-husband, Dave Cantin, who was her boyfriend at the time.


Dina posted a pic with her husband, Dave, on Instagram captioned: "He puts his arms around me and I am home… 6•28

"Happy Anniversary my love, forever is a looong time but I look forward to every minute of it with you."

Dave responded in the comments: "@Dina forever is not long enough with you, baby!"

And RHONJ OG Teresa Giudice also added: "Love you guys you are so beautiful together."



The couple's anniversary comes as her ex-husband, Thomas Manzo, allegedly hired a member of the crime-related Lucchese Crime Family to assault Dave back in 2015, according to court documents obtained by The Sun.

Court papers show Thomas allegedly gave John Perna Dave's home and work address and car description in order to find and assault him.

Thomas apparently made the deal with John in exchange for a discount on a wedding reception at his brother's catering and event space, The Brownstone.

According to the court document charges, John Perna, along with another man, followed Dave into a Passaic County mall and attacked him.

Authorities say John used a slapjack and had "the intent to inflict serious permanent injury" to assault him, and Dave sustained injuries that left him with a permanent facial scar.

A month after the alleged attack, John did hold a “lavish wedding reception at Manzo’s restaurant for a fraction of the price,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Court documents show Thomas and John were charged with committing a violent crime in aid of racketeering.

Thoma is also charged with allegedly falsifying and concealing records related to the investigation of the attack.

He apparently failed to provide requested documents related to John's wedding reception.

Authorities say he also “deliberately submitted a false document regarding the reception to the government, along with a false certification” back in 2015.

Thomas' attorney, Michael Critchley, said his client is completely innocent.

He told NewJersey.com: "The allegations more resemble a fictional plot of a reality TV show and will be proven to be absolutely and totally false as it relates to Thomas Manzo."
Thomas and John appeared in federal court via video conference yesterday.
