It's no secret that Dina Manzo and Teresa Giudice used to be really tight back in the day, but there did seem to be somewhat of a falling out there for a while… or so we thought. But, according to a recent interview that Dina did with BravoTV, she claims that her and Teresa were always friends, before, during, and after her time on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

"It's great hanging out with Tre again," she says. "We never stopped being friends. We just drifted apart a little bit, so it's fun being with her again."

Some rumors circulated that things were amiss between Teresa and Dina, when Teresa was a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice. Apparently, Dina was expecting Teresa to play for her charity, Project Ladybug, but Teresa picked a different recipient. Still, if we're to believe what Dina told the Dish about her and Tre always being friends, the Apprentice rumors were likely only rumors.

Dina makes her return to the Real Housewives of New Jersey on the upcoming Season 6, which premieres on Sunday, July 13. She definitely seems excited to be back on television, especially with all of the changes that have occurred in the past few years.

"I'm starting a new chapter of my life, it's like I'm 18-years-old again," Dina tells the Dish. "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."
