Jacqueline Laurita joined The Real Housewives of New Jersey in hopes of making peace with Teresa Giudice, but it has been an uphill battle for her. Jacqueline has a past with most of her co-stars, including Danielle Staub, Caroline Manzo, and Dina Manzo. Throughout the years, some of these friendships have been torn apart, and Dina Manzo admitted that she no longer spoke to her own sister, Caroline. But Laurita has managed to stay neutral with everyone as she films with Caroline on her family’s reality show, Manzo’d with Children, while staying in touch with Dina.
According to a new Bravo report, Jacqueline Laurita is now revealing that she doesn’t think about Caroline Manzo’s relationship with Dina in regards to her own friendship. While the two sisters are no longer speaking, Jacqueline Laurita is still on speaking terms with Dina, and it sounds like they are actually getting along much better than when they were filming the show together.

“[Dina] and I made up two years ago,” Jacqueline told the Daily Dish recently about her relationship with Manzo. “She came over for Thanksgiving, I saw her that Christmas, and I saw her at Lauren’s wedding.”

Of course, Manzo filmed one season with the Real Housewives of New Jersey women recently, but she quickly realized that she wasn’t up for the drama. She quickly decided to leave New Jersey and relocated to Los Angeles. Manzo has been working on her businesses in Los Angeles, and she’s even found a boyfriend. However, Jacqueline Laurita hasn’t seen her friend since she moved to Los Angeles, and she knows that Manzo isn’t speaking to her sister, Caroline.
“She sent me some stuff that I put on Instagram for her, and I sent her stuff that she put on Instagram for me. I would say it’s peaceful between us, but we haven’t seen her,” Jacqueline continues, saying that the distance does make it hard for them to stay in touch.

Even though Caroline and Dina have fought on and off for quite some time, it sounds like Jacqueline Laurita isn’t completely innocent in everything that’s going on. Of course, Jacqueline is married to Chris Laurita, who is Caroline and Dina’s brother. About two years ago, when Caroline was on Watch What Happens Live, she revealed that Dina and Jacqueline Laurita weren’t getting along, and she gave her siblings an ultimatum because she didn’t want Laurita in her life. It sounds like things have changed a bit in New Jersey, as Jacqueline is now the one getting along with everyone.

“I want you to understand the gravity of that,” Caroline told Andy Cohen back in 2014, adding, “This is a man that has a son that has special needs, and you’re saying for him to leave his wife in order for you to have a relationship with him.”
Clearly, Chris chose to stay with his wife, but it sounds like he may not have the choose at all if Jacqueline and Dina are as good friends as she claims. Even though Jacqueline Laurita may have been involved with the drama between the siblings, it sounds like she enjoys playing peacemaker between them as well. It’s no secret that Dina and Caroline are not exactly thrilled to be talking about their issues on national television and they have never admitted to what has been keeping them apart. Even though they have been cordial with one another in the past, it sounds like they aren’t getting along these days.
