Dina Manzo decided to rejoin The Real Housewives of New Jersey last season because Jacqueline Laurita decided to leave the show behind to focus on her son. The two ladies are indeed family members, as Jacqueline is married to Dina’s brother, Chris Laurita. At some point while filming the show, things went sour between them, and the family started a feud.
Fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have been trying to figure out why Dina Manzo didn’t want to meet up and talk things out with Laurita and her family. As the reunion was airing, Manzo got to share her side of the story, a side that hadn’t yet been heard. And it sounds like someone reached out because Dina has now made peace with her brother and his wife.
According to a new Real Mr. Housewife report, Dina Manzo and Jacqueline have ended their long-standing feud. The family members got together and talked things out, but don’t expect to see this solution being played out on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It sounds like Dina and her daughter, Lexi Manzo, decided to stop by on Thanksgiving weekend.
“We all mutually decided to stop the nonsense and move forward in a positive way. We even had Thanksgiving together for the first time and it was peaceful and normal and great to have everyone together,” Laurita revealed, adding that Dina had also made peace with her sister, Caroline Manzo.
During the reunion special, Dina Manzo pointed out that she had never met Nicholas, and that she loved him from afar in her own special way. But it sounds like things have changed, as Laurita revealed that Dina did indeed meet her son. And the two bonded very fast.
“Yes and he (Nicholas) loved her. He even sat on her lap and played with her hair,” she explains of Dina meeting her nephew for the first time.
It may come as a surprise to some fans that this family decided to make up when the Real Housewives of New Jersey cameras were not around. But just because they have made peace doesn’t mean the show is over. According to the Inquisitr, Dina Manzo is no longer interested in filming the show, but based on new reports, Caroline Manzo may return. It is rumored that she has been offered a large amount of money to return. It is uncertain what the fate is of her own show, Manzo’d with Children.
