In the interview, Staub alleged Manzo's ex is gay. She also claimed Manzo was completely aware of the issue -- even prior to their marriage.

“I don’t think that Dina ever didn’t know,” Staub claimed to Star Magazine on Sept. 4. “He had to hide it to appease the Manzo family, because it wasn’t acceptable for him to be gay. Dina was well aware of what she was getting into. Caroline [Manzo] was in on it too, because she set the two of them up.”

Staub claimed Tommy has been linked to two different boyfriends, one in Miami, and another whom he bought a home for in New Jersey. According to Danielle, Dina was also involved with another person during their marriage -- a married man whom she met in the early 2000s.

On "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," Manzo is seen getting back into the world of dating, and while she was linked to Matthew Schultz on the show, Staub said Manzo's married man is still in the picture.

“Everything’s fake,” Staub explained. “She had to come up with a story line to get a paycheck.”
