It's the time of year when everyone seems to come down with the flu. Sadly, our favorite reality stars are not immune, as Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo proves.

Dina will appear on the show's upcoming Season 6, and we can't wait to see her in action. However, at the moment, the typically energetic Dina is not feeling like her usual self.

On January 7, Dina posted a photo on Instagram of herself looking as though she is clearly under the weather. But she also shared a tip for not looking completely downtrodden when you're sick.

"Holy flu??" Dina captioned the shot of herself in bed. "Eyelash extensions are the only thing keeping me from looking like I'm dead. #notleavingmybed #mirrorednightstandselfie #help."

Poor Dina! She definitely sounds like she's suffering, so it's tough to see her like this. That said, her eyelashes do look amaze. Thanks for sharing your secret, D!

On the bright side, we're happy that Dina has a new apartment to enjoy for the new year. And will Dina be meeting a new man in 2014? She teases that she is definitely open to finding love

We wish Dina all the best as she continues to recover!
