Jacqueline Laurita Reveals Fight With Dina Manzo Is Over: We Mutually Decided To Stop The Nonsense


RHONJ stars Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo have finally ended their epic family feud and Laurita is speaking out about the reconciliation in a new interview with RadarOnline.

“We all mutually decided to stop the nonsense and move forward in a positive way,” Jacqueline reveals. “We even had Thanksgiving together for the first time and it was peaceful and normal and great to have everyone together.”

On Thanksgiving, Laurita tweeted it was “great spending time with family tonight. I was happy to see everyone.” And she reveals that included Dina. Not only did the family gather for the holiday, but Dina got to meet her nephew Nicholas for the first time.

“Yes and he loved her,” Jacqueline says. “He even sat on her lap and played with her hair.”

As we previously reported, Dina revealed earlier this week that her family relationships have been in a better place for some time, including with her sister Caroline Manzo and brother Chris Laurita.

“Things have been good for a bit just wanted to keep it private for a minute~Not everything needs to be done w cameras,” Dina tweeted.

We couldn’t be happier for the family.

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.

    So for years there was this feud that NOW suddenly is gone, just like, well, almost overnight.. ok, in less than a month… strange.

    I doubt this is all over…

    • ChristopherM

      I would bet Dina was getting called out enough publicly by fans of the show for being a cold-hearted biatch (though at least with Jacqueline one can understand that) that she decided enough with the bad PR.

      • Anonymous

        I cometely agree. Dina knew Jac would start talking and got scared after Caro opened up on WWHL.

    • Nikki

      Yup I agree, all for show, or The Show! I can’t stand them anyway.

    • As soon as someone comes in and says jump they will, Caro and Jaqo, like the rats they are.

  • Karen

    Well, miracles DO happen! I sure hope it lasts, hopefully Jaq can keep it quiet for Chris’ sake and just let peace reign! Happy Merry Christmas!

  • Aunt Bee

    As Melissa and Teresa always say: thank you Jesus. Now if those two dummies can just do the same.

    • Karen

      Seriously Aunt Bee- cuz we all know that “truce” is just that- a truce- not a real coming together of family. It was very apparent at the reunion, and how Teresa refuses to spend any time with her brother’s family before going into orison.Teresa still freezes out Joe and Melissa and has no love for them. Maybe she has her reasons, maybe they have theirs, but it’s more than obvious that she wants a little to do with them as possible.

      • kyle

        Yes because you have personally first hand experience seeing Teresa not visit Joe? Or are you going solely off of tabloids and speculations? Cause if so that is not very bright. See the whole picture.

  • Jo

    Let’s hope they all get back on RHONJ!

  • sumack

    Is it just me or does Caroline’s smile look fake? It doesn’t help that I really don’t like her but on saying that it still looks fake!!!

    • Daniel

      I completely agree. That’s one of the reasons I didn’t like Caroline from season 1, I thought her laugh and smile always seemed fake.

  • Tam

    Could this quick make up have anything to do with Tre going away .. Just saying

  • Nikki

    These hags will do anything for the cameras and an easy paycheck! Who cares, they will fighting again by Easter!


  • medicated fan

    I think this has to do more with Dina’ s finances that anything else. She’s made such dramatic statements about not filming with her family that she had to appear to reconcile with Caroline and Jac. She needs that paycheck and it seems now that one, if not both, of these other ladies will be coming back to film. Though, I do hope the reconciliation is authentic.

    i think they are trying to sell a season 7. i thought i read that the manziods show’s ratings were not good numbers, so that show will probably not be renewed. if so the manzoids will be out of a job. jac needs money due to legal issues with chris’s company bankruptcy. dina would probably not turn down money that would be offered ( even if she had to film with her family ) there has been a lot of rumors about the new jersey players. i think to drum up support of a season7. the fate of the new jersey show is in limbo, i think. imo the laurita/manzo are wanting on the show. if they had a show it would be with caroline ( who’s manzoid show cancelled because lack of ratings ) , jac ( another messy legal problem with bankruptcy ) , and dina ( who is really not as popular as she thinks ) in caroline’s one on one with andy, caroline said if lauren could be a housewife, then caroline would come back part time. i think this is a pr stunt, hoping to garner support of a season 7 with laurita/manzo. i stopped watching the new jersey show when bravo allowed a criminal to continue filming. but, just because i stopped watching the show that doesn’t mean that others will stop watching, i have a feeling that this will be in andy’s next book.


    I’m so happy they have made amends.

  • BravoGirl

    I would love to see the original cast from season 1 come back for the 7th season!

  • cynthiaispurty

    I’m very happy for their family. But I do tend to agree that this probably means we get all three back for season 7, and that season 7 happens pre-Teresa’s release. So the season cast could potentially be Caroline, Dina, Jacqueline, Melissa, Amber, Nicole, TeREHsa. Add in Kathy and someone else. I say Twins, Dina vs. Amber, Melissa, Jacqueline, Caroline.

  • Jayden MacCaraughney

    season 7:

    Caroline – main
    Jacqueline – main
    Teresa N – main
    Amber – main
    New wife
    New wife



  • Theresa was open about how it went down when her Brother and Melissa came on. The first show kinda sealed it. He is the one who came in like a bull, no matter what he and Theresa had going on he ruined his son’s christening and it just escalated from there. They just don’t belong in polite society, they need to find Brandy and Kimmy to have like people. Always go in to hurt and destroy, never to love and repair.
