RHONJ Dina Manzo Has Acting Debut in New Amazon Series Tainted Dreams: Cast Includes Reality and Soap Stars

Dina Manzo and Anthony Wilkinson star in #Tainted Dreams
RHONJ Dina Manzo has another show on her IMDB profile, a soap. Dina appears in Tainted Dreams, a continuing drama now streaming on Amazon. Tainted Dreams is the brainchild of Sonia Blangiardo, who has been behind the scenes in the land of soaps as a director for decades. Tainted Dreams chronicles the behind-the-scenes happenings of a soap opera, Painted Dreams - and if you think the on-screen happening are interesting there's even more drama behind the cameras.

Dina called her appearance, "my little acting debut among all these soap pros." Indeed, she is in the cast with iconic players from daytime, Alicia Minshew, Austin Peck, Terri Ivans, Walt Willey, Grant Aleksander, Michael Lowry, Kelley Hensely, Bobbie Eakes, Colleen Zenk, Natalia Livinston, the late Larkin Malloy, Jaimes DePaiva, Ilene Krsten, Nathan Purdee, Tonya Walker and Marie Schulenberg. Rounding out the cast is Anthony Wilkinson of  the My Big Gay Italian Wedding franchise and Big Brothers/wrestling's Jessie Godderz and others.

In her exclusive promo for the show she talks about "how she always wanted to be an actress." She also states how "it's a very different dynamic" versus being on a reality show, when the cameras are following you around. In this show, the Manzo surname is gone. She's a DiGiacomo!
