Dino recently confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that he will soon announce a series of ‘mindfulness retreats’ with Amanda, whom he initially met through Instagram.
‘She is down to earth, family oriented and a great friend,’ he said of Amanda.
They met up in Melbourne for a photo shoot last week, ahead of their brand’s launch.

Hayley Vernon is good friends with last year’s ‘cheating’ bride Jessika Power, after the pair ‘bonded’ over their villainous reputations.
They formed a connection two months ago after being introduced by a mutual friend, and have been inseparable ever since.
‘Jessika has even stayed over at Hayley’s home in Melbourne after they’ve been out partying together,’ said a source.

Vanessa Romito is the ex-girlfriend of last year’s star Bronson Norrish.
During Bronson’s stint on MAFS, Vanessa gained notoriety by repeatedly slamming him in a series of since-deleted YouTube videos.
But the businessman doesn’t hold a grudge, telling Daily Mail Australia: ‘Best of luck to her. I hope she has more luck on the show than I did.’

Meanwhile, Ivan Sarakula’s reality TV fame appears to have been a long time coming.
Last March, he shared a photo to Instagram with 2019 star Cyrell Paule, whom he described as a ‘new friend’, as they enjoyed a night out in Sydney.
In 2016, he posted a selfie with Bachelor in Paradise’s Keira Maguire in Coogee.
