Real Housewives of New Jersey is all about the drama lately always. Dina Manzo would reportedly only sign on to appear on Season 6 if both her sister, Caroline Manzo, and her sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita were off the show. Rumor has it she got her way. Caroline has already confirmed that she won’t return next season, while Jac’s future is still up in the air...but not really looking too good right now.

Luckily, the relationship between Caroline and Jacqueline still seems to be holding strong. These two have had their troubles in the past, but they appear to be doing fine lately.

Case in point: Caroline and her entire family showed up to help celebrate Tony Laurita’s birthday on October 24. Caroline posted a ton of Instagram photos from the event, including one of her son, Albie, hanging out with Jacqueline’s son, CJ.

In another photo, her daughter, Lauren, and Lauren’s boyfriend, Vito, playfully tickled Jac’s other son, Nick. She didn’t post any photos of Jac, but we assume she’s there with her sons. But what about Caroline’s sister and Jac’s sister-in-law, Dina? Did she make it to the family gathering?

It doesn’t appear so. Dina tweeted plenty of times that day, but she didn’t say anything about attending the family party. She also Instagrammed a photo of kombucha tea, but it doesn’t appear to be from the party.

Well, we do know that Dina is on a cleanse right now (hence the kombucha). Maybe she just wanted to avoid the temptation of birthday cake? Yeah. That’s probably it...
