The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo has made amends with Dina after years of estrangement. However, while most of the drama between the cast goes down in front of Bravo cameras, this reconciliation happened off-screen.
“Caroline and Dina met away from cameras a few weeks ago,” a source revealed to Radar Online on December 12. “They reconciled privately.”
That said, it isn’t known what brought them together — though it doesn’t seem to matter to the rest of the Manzo family.
“It doesn’t matter to the family what brought Caroline and Dina back together or who approached who first,” the source said.
For years, since filming wrapped on Season 2 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Caroline and Dina had been estranged. While there were reports claiming it was Teresa Giudice who came between them, those reports were denied.
“Now, the whole family is good,” the source continued. “They are all just very happy to be together again.”
As the Inquisitr recently reported, Dina also made nice with Jacqueline Laurita, the wife of Chris Laurita, which Laurita confirmed in an interview on Thursday.
“We all mutually decided to stop the nonsense and move forward in a positive way,” Laurita told Radar Online on December 11. “We even had Thanksgiving together for the first time and it was peaceful and normal and great to have everyone together.”
During their holiday festivities, Dina met Laurita’s son, Nicholas (who is Dina’s nephew), for the first time.
“He loved her,” Laurita said. “He even sat on her lap and played with her hair.”
On Twitter, Dina confirmed the family’s reconciliation.
“Things have been good for a bit just wanted to keep it private for a minute,” she wrote on December 11. “Not everything needs to be done w cameras.”
On The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Caroline Manzo was often seen in the middle of the drama, but for the most part, she kept issues with her family off-screen — at least she did when it came to Dina. Even when Dina returned to the show, her family issues with Caroline were not discussed, and neither was her ongoing drama with Laurita and her husband, Chris. As the Inquisitr reported, Laurita took a brief hiatus from the show earlier this year.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo is no longer appearing on the show with the rest of the wives, including Teresa Giudice, Kathy Wakile, and Melissa Gorga. Instead, her and her family are featured in the Bravo spinoff, Manzo’d With Children.
