As CI readers know, there has been an influx of home invasions of celebrities in the past few months.

Most famously, Kim Kardashian was hit by robbers in Paris who stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry from her after tying her up and leaving her in the bathroom.
Lucky for Kim, she wasn’t hurt like Danzo and Cantin.
Celebrities like Alanis Morisette, Nicki Minaj, Anthony Davis, Cesar Milan, and Kendall Jenner have also been hit with home invasions in the recent past.
Manzo appeared on the first two seasons of RHONJ in 2009 and 2010, and she went back on the show in 2014.
She remains good friends with co-star Teresa Giudice, and Manzo hosted the short-lived HGTV party-planning series Dina’s Party.
Cantin, who once battled cancer despite his young age, is a successful businessman and co-owner of one of the largest car dealerships in the world! Manzo rose to fame on the Bravo reality TV show, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” where she collaborated with her sister Caroline.
