Hoping to keep her family feud private, Dina Manzo breathed a sigh of relief knowing her estranged sister Caroline Manzo wouldn’t be returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey this season, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
Laurita announced this week she wouldn’t be returning to RHONJ because she was “burnt out from the drama” but would make guest appearances on Caroline’s spin-off.

According to another source, the sisterly rift between Dina and Caroline is far from being repaired.
“They aren’t exactly friendly. They are distancing themselves and find it better that way,” the source said.
“Dina doesn’t want to be exposed for who she really is.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres Sunday, July 13, at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
