We’ve been speculating for weeks now that former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo is headed back to the show that she left after Season 2, and now the Jersey gal herself has confirmed that she’s received an invite to rejoin the cast for Season 6.
“I have been offered, I can say that. I'm considering it,” Dina tells In Touch exclusively. “And they let me know who's coming back and who's not coming back this season, and asked me if I would join, and I am considering it, I will say.”
Interestingly enough, Dina’s sister Caroline Manzo is likely one of the cast members not returning for Season 6, since the mom of three has already shot the pilot for her spin-off, Manzo’d With Children, although it has yet to be ordered to series. Caroline’s absence from Season 6 may influence whether or not Dina rejoins the show that made her famous. The sisters have been feuding for unknown reasons for years, and it’s safe to assume that Dina wouldn’t want to be on RHoNJ alongside her big sis.
Caroline and Dina’s sister-in-law, Jacqueline Laurita, also hinted she would leave if Dina was on board for Season 6. Earlier this month Jac tweeted, “I don't think Dina is trying to get me fired but I know she doesn't want to come on the show with me on it. Probably to avoid any conflict.”
According to Dina, Jac is correct. The last thing she wants to do is cause any family rifts, and turn her clan into another feuding family that we know. Gorgas and Giudices, anyone?
“I never wanted to go back and fight with my family. They'd probably always love to have me back, and you know, I never wanted to do that. Now that Caroline is leaving for her own pilot, and I'm assuming Jacqueline's going with her too, you know, I would never want to be public with issues with my family.”
Despite her current issues with various family members, Dina harbors no ill will against RHoNJ. “We had a lot of fun seasons. I don't blame anything or anyone, and I'm positive my family's going to come out of it," she says.
