If you were as bummed as we were to see drama-magnet Dina Manzo leave the Real Housewives of New Jersey after only two glorious seasons, you probably tuned in to the OWN channel tonight to catch her appearance on Oprah: Where Are They Now?

The network caught up with Caroline's sister in the Hamptons, where Dina goes to escape her "real life" by taking long walks on the beach in evening gowns. These days, Dina is all about yoga, meditation, and happiness.

Here are the five most surprising quotes from the evening…

5. On Why She Left RHoNJ…

"It actually started in Season 1 why I decided to leave the Real Housewives… when I went home at the end of the night and I was shaking instead of feeling inspired, I knew there was something wrong."

4. On Having Fun in the Beginning...

"It was before the table-flip happened… that kind of sent the show into a different direction — I think the entire franchise into a different direction."

3. Her Advice to Daughter, Alexi...

"Don't be like any of us, including myself… I was just so horrified that my daughter saw that."

2. On Teresa Giudice's Current Legal Woes...

"She could be in the deepest hole and she's still like 'Oh my God, those shoes are great'… and that's what I love about her."

1. On What She's Taken Away With Her...

"I think what I've learned the most throughout this whole experience is really how important it is to be true to yourself."
