Dina’s daughter Lexi, recently graduated from high school, which is good news, even if it’s tough for Mom. However, Dina is also taking a good hard look at her own relationship with husband Tommy. They’ve been separated for a while now, even if it’s a confusing separation that might still involve living together.
One of Bravo’s previews for Season 6 shows Dina getting tearful when talking to a divorce attorney about whether her marriage is really over or not, so that’s something that will be addressed on air. She does seem to be getting herself back out on the dating market, which scares her (especially the part about getting naked in front of someone new).
She may be looking for a new man in her life, but she’s not lonely for company. On June 19, she shared the photo below, captioning it “My perfect date for tonight ❤️”
Her “date” is a precious little Chihuahua named Gracie. Dina adopted the two-legged puppy mill survivor in 2011. Gracie is surrounded by cats — including hairless Grandma Wrinkles and Botox, and pretty Ladybug — so it’s nice to see Dina give Gracie some one-on-one time to show she’s not alone. They are both outnumbered by felines!
Dina is a self-described Crazy Cat Lady, but CCLs need love too. We’ll have to wait and see what resolution Dina shares about her relationship with Tommy. We know they’ll always be close, even if/when they divorce, and he did just pose with Dina and Lexi at Lexi’s high school graduation party. Dina added a little heart emoji, so … we’re not reading into it, just saying — it ain’t over till it’s over.
Catch the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 premiere on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET.
