While Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo is leaving the cast because she got a pilot for her own spin-off show, new reports have her sister Dina Manzo returning to the hit Bravo show after a three-season hiatus.
According to In Touch magazine, Dina is in "serious talks" to get back on the show — and the decision was heavily made on the fact that her estranged sister Caroline would be leaving.
Caroline, 52, has been green-lit for a reality TV show pilot with her family called Manzo'd With Children.
"The timing is perfect — Caroline won't be returning next season," a source told the magazine of Dina's return.
"She has her spin-off and that's what she's moving on to. She might appear in a couple episodes here and there."
The insider added, "Dina Manzo's return to the show is all but a done deal."
