Dina Manzo appeared on Watch What Happens Live Sunday night with Andy Cohen and when Andy showed a preview for next week’s reunion, Manzo finally broke her silence on the feud with her siblings Caroline Manzo and Chris Laurita.
During the preview for the reunion, Dina reveals that she has kept her mouth shut for years about her family problems and that Jacqueline caused problems again by coming on RHONJ this season.
Dina says “right now I don’t want a relationship with Jacqueline,” Manzo also admitted that her brother Chris Laurita reached out to her when he heard the news that she was separated from her husband Tommy Manzo.
“I could not have been happier,” an emotional Dina says during the reunion of her brother. “But that lasted all of fifteen minutes until… I don’t want to get into it but not everybody was on the same page.”
Andy points out that Dina was much more verbal at the upcoming reunion about her family feud, more than he’s ever seen her be before.
“Because I kept my mouth shut for all these years and that didn’t help,” Dina insists. “Like maybe if I talk this will go away.”
Andy asked Dina to explain where her relationship with her sister Caroline Manzo is at these days and notes that it seems like it can eventually be mended.
“Yes, she’s my sister,” Dina said of a future reconciliation with Caroline.
“And Jacqueline is?” Andy asks.
“My brother’s wife,” Dina hesitates.
Of course Dina’s comments fueled a response from Jacqueline on Twitter.
“I asked my husband to reach out to Dina when she went through the divorce,” Jacqueline tweeted Andy during WWHL. “So did I and I encouraged them to meet. She wouldn’t.”
“That’s not true,” Dina told Andy. “Just because you say it doesn’t mean it’s true. I wanted to meet with my brother more than anything.”
Jacqueline later added, “Oh and I still have our text messages that I can show you.”
Jacqueline continued, “You’re lying is what keeps getting u into trouble @dinamanzo in ALL areas of ur life. Y do u keep hurting ur family? You know we’ve ALL tried.”
After the show, Dina sent out a tweet sharing her frustration with the situation.
“Maybe if Jacqueline would get off twitter and stay out of it my brother and I can one day mend. DONE with this,” Dina wrote.
Jacqueline was quick to reply to Dina, writing, “He tried a few times and you wouldn’t meet with him. #shame @dinamanzo”
Jacqueline continued to defend herself, tweeting, “Chris had enough & gave up trying 2 have a relationship w/ @dinamanzo. She has hurt him too much. She’s got 2 make the move. He’ll be here. (w/ ME)”
Who do you believe? Do you think Dina and Jacqueline can ever make up?
