"My secret ... I have been separated since October," the reality star, who appeared on Bravo's Real Housewives of New Jersey before moving on to her own show, Dina's Party on HGTV, Tweeted. "My heart hurts but Tommy and I will always share a very special love."
Dina, 41, and her sister Caroline, who also appeared on the show, were married to brothers Tommy and Albert Manzo, owners of N.J.'s Brownstone event hall. Dina's million-dollar wedding was documented for VH1's My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding, but Tommy never appeared on Housewives, and Dina has alluded to her husband's aversion to the media.
On Twitter, Dina thanked friends for their support. "I'm so grateful for the support of my loved ones during this time, especially my spiritual friends. You know who you are. And of course, my biggest supporter Lexi (her daughter from a previous marriage). Tommy adores her and they will remain close."
