While estranged sister Caroline Manzo‘s exit, to film her spin-off series “Manzo’d With Children,” paved the way for Dina’s return, In Touch reports that the returning star has forced Bravo’s hand and pushed estranged sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita out, as well.
”When Bravo told Dina that Caroline got a spin-off, Dina said, ‘Jacqueline has to go, too. It’s her or me,'” an insider tells the magazine.
Laurita went on record with the magazine, confirming Dina’s demands. “I understand why Dina wouldn’t want me on the show,” she says. “She doesn’t want to address family issues on-camera!”
The family has remained tight-lipped as to the cause of this bitter family feud, but an insider close to the cast has revealed what’s at the root of the drama. “Dina started it because she wanted Caroline and Jacqueline to quit the show when she left [in 2010,'” the source says, adding that Dina does not speak to Caroline or Laurita. “They didn’t, so this is her way of getting back at them.”
Do you think Dina’s return to the series is worth all her demands, “RHONJ” fans?
