Awkward! Lauren Manzo Reveals She’s Inviting Estranged Aunt Dina Manzo To Her Wedding
Caroline Manzo and her estranged sister Dina will have to bury the hatchet for one night – and not in each others backs — to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of the daughter and niece Lauren.
Though the Real Housewives of New Jersey sisters haven’t spoken in years, Caroline's daughter has made the decision to add her aunt to the guest list, she confirmed to RadarOnline.com.
"It’s a sensitive topic, but at the end of the day, we’re still family,” Lauren said, in an exclusive interview.
“Of course, I’ll invite my Aunt Dina. I’m not sure if she will come, but she will definitely be invited."
Despite the deep rift that has engulfed the Manzos, Dina has previously hinted that she was hopeful about reconciling with her sister –- off camera.
She said: “Fifteen minutes come and go. And I understand we may be stretching it here and there. But at the end of the day, after all that is done, we’re gonna see through it all. I love my family. I always will. There’s distance right now and we’ll fix that off camera."

“We both cried tears of pure joy,” she said.
“The ring is perfect, breathtaking. I love it,” Lauren gushed about the bling, which includes “a radiant center stone, with a halo of pave and rose gold diamonds.”
“I knew when I first met him that I would marry him!”
The pair hasbeen dating for over four years.
As for a televised wedding, Lauren hasn’t ruled it out.
“There’s always that possibility and I won’t say it’s out of the question,” she said.
One thing is certain – it will be a huge affair.
Lauren told RadarOnline.com: “We have so many friends and family members that there won’t be any other size but big."
