Does Dina Manzo Miss Being On RHONJ? Did The Show Tear Apart Her Family?

Andy Cohen & Housewives

Former Real Housewife of New Jersey, Dina Manzo, found an old file on her computer full of pictures doing promotional shoots for Seasons 1 and 2 of RHONJ, and shared them with her Twitter followers this weekend. It got us wondering if Dina misses being on RHONJ? Dina posted the photo above on Instagram, and tweeted, “Shot of big daddy Andy w a few of his many wives..me, NeNe & Bethenny.”

Dina also reflected back on how much things have changed for her family since she appeared on RHONJ. We know Dina and Caroline have a very strained relationship, as well as Dina and her brother Chris Laurita, along with her sister-in-law Jacqueline. She tweeted, “weird to see how much things have changed since that photo was taken..I always wonder what things would be like if housewives never happened.”






When Dina said she wondered what things would be like if RHONJ never happened, it got us wondering the same thing. Would she and Caroline have the same close relationship they did before the show? Would Dina still have a relationship with her brother Chris? It has been reported that the show is what interfered and what caused the Manzo/Laurita Family Feud. It seems like Dina is asking herself the same questions…

Do YOU think RHONJ strained the family’s relationships?

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
