Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo is back (yeah, baby!), but how does the Real Housewives favorite feel about returning to the show after many seasons away?

Dina told The Dish that coming to the show now makes sense, because she's "starting a new chapter in [her] life."

"It's like I'm 18 years old again," she dished. "A lot has been going on in my life. It feels good to be back. But you'll have to watch the season to [see what's changed]. There's a lot."

One change she's referring to is probably her split from husband Tommy, which happened back in 2013. That's definitely a big life event. Plus, her daughter, Lexi, is all grown up. She's a senior headed off to college next year, which we imagine is a big deal for Dina, though we don't know how much of Lexi we'll be seeing on the show.

We'll have to wait until the show premieres on July 13 to see what else Dina is talking about. But whatever the case, we do know this: as Dina told Wetpaint Entertainment, she thinks the new season is "refreshing," and she's glad she came back to the show. Sounds like a good sign to us!
