Lisa Vanderpump vs. Dina Manzo of New Jersey
Real Housewives viewer sees a hairless domesticated animal, s/he’s likely to think of Gramma Wrinkles, Dina Manzo’s cat from
The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The two have an incredibly close relationship that didn’t sit well with all cast mates and viewers, but Manzo may be rivaled by
Beverly Hills’ import from the U.K., Lisa Vanderpump. While her accent is reminiscent of Cat Ommanney from the
D.C. cast, her affinity for her pint-size, nearly bald puppy, Giggy, is much more Manzo-esque. It seems, like the former
New Jersey cast member, Vanderpump treats Giggy (and her other three dogs) like her children, since her 24-year-old daughter and 18-year-old son are no longer at home. And another trait the two share, besides their puppy love, is their passion for design. Manzo worked as an interior designer and party planner, and Vanderpump designed various homes, yachts, and all of 26 bars and restaurants that she and her husband owned in London. All it takes is design, dogs, and diamonds keep these women happy.
