There are rumors circulating that Dina Manzo’s assistant Luke McKibben was fired because he refused to appear with her on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but RumorFix has the real scoop.
As we exclusively confirmed, Dina IS returning to the show.
RumorFix caught up with Luke, who also starred with Dina on Dina’s Party, and we can confirm the rumor IS NOT true.
“I was not fired,” Luke told our Real Mr. Housewife. “I am leaving my job as Dina’s assistant because I am going back to the UK to do my own thing in radio. I am from the UK, after all. Plus, I am appearing on the show and could not be more excited!”
The rumor also claimed that Luke doesn’t like Dina’s friend and fellow Housewife Teresa Giudice. “This also is not true,” Luke told us exclusively. “This really is a nasty rumor, but I think we all know who spread it.”
Luke will miss working with Dina, but he tells us they will always be in touch because of their strong bond.
