Useful information on Dani Manning
* Went to boarding school in London.
Current: Student at Llanview University
Past: Student at Llanview High School
Past: Student at a London Boarding School
Dani first appeared in October 2009 when Matthew Buchanan was forced to attend boarding school in London. Unbeknown to Matthew, she had a huge connection to a few Llanview residents - and was the daughter of Tea Delgado!
Dani quickly befriended Matthew and urged him to fight against his parents in order to have the surgery he longed for. Dani and Matthew escaped the boarding school and were brought back to Llanview. Months later it was revealed that Todd Manning was actually her real father.
It took a long time for Dani to accept Todd, but the two grew close after Ross' death and during the time when they thought Tea was dying from a brain tumor. Nate was there to comfort Dani, who she'd fallen in love with during the Starr X'd Lovers musical. Matthew resented her and tried his best to get back and Dani and Nate.
Dani struggled with life after finding out Tea had died while in hospice, where she insisted on dying alone. Dani was soon kidnapped by Eli, during his reign of terror, and shocked when she came face to face with her mother, who hadn't died at all!
Safe and sound with her family, Dani's next troubles arrived when Nate was arrested for the murder of his a father, Eddie Ford. Tea managed to exonerate Nate after he admitted to covering for his mother, who didn't kill Eddie either.
Dani and Nate tried to get back to being normal kids in a relationship. On Valentine's Day, Dani told Nate she was ready to have sex for the first time. However, just as things started heating up, Todd walked in on them and ordered Dani to never see Nate again. Though Dani and Nate ran away, Todd found them at Viki's cabin. Tea managed to calm Todd down, who ended up shot outside of Rodi's. Dani felt guilty for how she'd treated her father and prayed he'd wake up from the coma.

At the Man Of The Year Gala at Shelter, Nikki complains to Rama about her lack of tips. When Dorian arrives, Rama hides behind Nikki. Carl Peterson joins Dorian and comments on the self-portrait she donated. Jo and David appear with their cameraman. Dorian introduces Carl to her soon-to-be ex-husband then trashes Rama. Viki arrives outside, late, and apologizes to Diego for Clint punching him. When Viki enters the gala, she tells Jeffrey and Destiny how lovely they look. Bo and Nora watch and hope Matthew's okay with Jeffrey and Destiny being together. They can't deny how they hoped one day Matthew and Destiny would reunite. Viki joins Natalie, where they discuss Clint and pray he stays away from the gala. Viki then takes Carl away from Dorian to meet Bo. Blair privately confesses to Dorian that she has no idea where Jack is tonight. Arturo and Dani appear. Tea spots them and orders Dani over. Dani claims Arturo is Brianna's uncle, but Tea is clearly upset by her daughter's date and storms off. Michelle appears and argues with Dani over Matthew and the fact that they're wearing the same dress. Arturo takes Dani away, and Michelle cries on Matthew's shoulder about how mean Dani is to her. Matthew races over to Dani, orders her to stay away from Michelle then goes to Tea and reveals that Arturo isn't Brianna's uncle. He was her sugar daddy. Tea stomps over to Dani and Arturo and demands he get his hands off her daughter. As they argue, the gala is called to order. Viki takes the podium and begins with the auction of Dorian's self-portrait. Dorian's embarrassed when no one starts the bidding. Carl notices, bids $100,000, and wins. At the bar, Nikki gets catty with Natalie and reveals that Cutter has been having sex with her for months. When Cutter joins Natalie, she seethes about what Nikki said. Nikki spills a drink on Natalie.
Clint screams at the gala at Shelter, "I am the Man Of The Year!" Viki begs Clint to stop making a fool of himself, as he trashes the place. EMS arrives and straps Clint to a gurney. Natalie scolds Bo for having Clint taken away like that in front of everyone. Natalie ignores Viki's orders not to follow Clint to the psych ward and insists on supporting Clint, as does Matthew. She storms out and pushes Cutter away. Cutter demands to know why Diego allowed Clint into Shelter and hears Clint paid him $100,000. Viki hears about the payoff from Diego too. Carl says goodbye to Viki, who gives Jeffrey the go-ahead to cover what went down with Clint. Tea follows Dani and Arturo outside and demands to know why she lied about Arturo. She calls Arturo a predator and warns Dani she'll end up like Brianna. Dani storms off. Back inside, Viki brings up seeing Blair crying during Carl's speech and asks Blair what kind of trouble Todd is in. Blair denies Viki any information. Cutter approaches Nikki about revealing their connection to Natalie. She reminds him they have business to take care of. He agrees and says that 'this' can't come between it. Nikki kisses Cutter and insists that what he has with Natalie will never work.
As Carl takes the stage at the gala, Clint appears outside and tries to make amends with Diego. Back inside, everyone listens with emotion as Carl toasts to those who have given them their freedom in our nation. As Blair cries, Tea whispers, "He'll be back." As Bo takes the stage to accept the Man Of The Year award from Viki, Clint appears. He pushes Bo off the stage, takes the award and says, "From the bottom of my heart, screw all of you."
Dani accompanies Arturo to his suite and apologizes for what happened with Tea. She admits to being confused. Arturo kisses Dani passionately, who kisses him back. Soon, their clothes come off, and Arturo carries Dani to the bed.
Michelle greets Dani at the coffeehouse and asks her if she is excited about the gala. Dani rushes off with Michelle talking mid sentence.

Back outside, Dani tries to calm herself by telling Arturo her mom is inside. Jeffrey and Destiny arrive moments later as does Carl. Carl meets everyone as Michelle and Matthew approach.
