She added that you don't have to be "aging" to use her products and that her 20-year-old daughter Lexi uses it to "brighten her skin." A portion of all the sales go to Project Ladybug, which she described as "a win, win" since they are able to "help kids with cancer and save the environment."

Adding, "I feel like I belonged out here, forever. I love it. It’s so laid back and I feel not so weird out here with my spiritual practices and everything, it’s the norm here."

But even without the show Dina is still keeping busy! She revealed that besides focusing on Glow, she is re-writing her book during her free time. "It needs a lot of adjustments, I started writing it a couple of years ago and a lot has happened in my life in the last two years and I've learned a lot more about spirituality and myself. I've been through a lot that can help can help other women out there."

And Dina has been through a lot, especially when it comes to her divorce and move. She explained, "Divorce is never easy, but it’s especially challenging when you are moving across the country at the same time and you're faced with a lot of changes all at once." Adding, "Going through a divorce and giving up on love and say you’re going to live alone and you're fine with that because you have a full life with friends and everything is kind of a mindset of just staying positive and everything falls into place after that."
And luckily she does have friends to "elevate" her mood, one being her former co-star Teresa Giudice. As for the ways that Dina helps Teresa handle her husband Joe Giudice being in prison, she said, "I’m her friend that keeps everything really light for her, I keep things light and I think she appreciates that. I don’t bring the drama around, I just want to have fun."

Sorry fans, but don't expect to see Dina starring in her own reality show! "I don’t think I would want that," she said. "I love my life and I want to live my life. I would do part of a group again, I wouldn’t want my own show unless it was hosting or something. I feel like I do better in an ensemble."
