Even when they’re no longer active “Housewives,” the ladies of Bravo’s hit franchise keep the drama rolling.

“Real Housewives of New Jersey” alum Dina Manzo announced that she and her husband of seven years, Tommy Manzo, have been separated since October.

“My secret... I have been separated since October, my heart hurts but Tommy & I will always share a very special love,” she tweeted late Friday after quoting Lisa Gastineau’s “Secrets are heavy… lighten the load.”

Dina has a 17-year-old daughter, Alexia, from a previous marriage.

“My biggest supporter Lexi, Tommy adores her & they will remain close,” Dina tweeted.

Dina, 41, was only featured on the first season of the New Jersey series, but has made several appearances since. She also stars on “Dina’s Party” on HGTV, highlighting big celebrations and parties. She and Tommy’s wedding was featured on VH1’s “My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding,” but Tommy rarely appeared on “Housewives,” preferring to stay out of the spotlight.
