There probably aren't many newbie actors more equipped to enter the world of a sordid soap opera than a former member of the Real Housewives franchise! Ex-Real Housewives of New Jersey sweetheart Dina Manzo has been cast in the upcoming web sudser Tainted Dreams, reports Celebuzz.
From veteran soap director Sonia Blangiardo (General Hospital, As The World Turns, As The World Turns, All My Children, One Life to Live), Tainted Dreams (A play on Irna Phillips' inaugural soap Painted Dreams?) is set in the world of a fictional daytime drama. Manzo will play Manhattan mogul Alessandra on the sudser, alongside AMC alums Alicia Minshew, Walt Willey and Michael Lowry. ATWT's vets Kelley Meninghan Hensley and Marnie Schulenburg are also attached. Just don't cast Teresa Giudice, or we'll never hear the end of it next season on RHONJ!
