After the RHONJ reunion on Sunday, Caroline Manzo made an appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live! Andy being his charming, nosy, and lovable self had to get Caroline’s opinion on Dina’s comments from the RHONJ reunion part 1.
As we all know, the sisters, Caroline and Dina have been estranged for the past 5 years. Dina also hasn’t spoken to their brother Chris Laurita and his wife Jacqueline Laurita.
This family feud has been documented on the RHONJ, in blogs and on social media but the reason for the family rift is still mystery. When either side is questioned about the feud they either dance around the topic or avoid it all together but it continues to be a constant source of drama in their lives.
It looks like Caroline finally had enough and decided to let loose.
“First of all I’m embarrassed I’m mortified I hate the fact that I have to say this because you and I both know that I have come at you hard when you’ve tried to discuss this but I feel I have to defend myself now at this point.”
Andy digs deeper telling Caroline that Dina says she would do a cooking show with Caroline and that Dina seems like she’s interested in reconciling with Caroline.
Caroline tells Andy “No I’m a package deal. I come with everybody. You may have issues with somebody but you don’t dismiss someone in your family and you don’t make someone say I’m giving you a choice I’m giving you an option the only way you and I can have a relationship is if you cut someone out of your life that’s my brothers wife. Chris was given the same ultimatum and I want you to understand the gravity of that this is man who has a son with special needs and your saying for him to leave his wife in order for you to have a relationship with him. The same little boy she walked past two weeks ago at a party and how you cannot take that baby and hug him and tell him you love him I don’t understand that. So I have to say I don’t want the cooking show. I don’t care about TV I don’t care what the paper said I want my family back. I’ve done everything in my power to make that happen and so have the rest of us. Dina has to grow up.”
Dina took to Twitter to respond to Caroline’s claims:

Who do you think is telling the truth Caroline or Dina? Do you think Dina really told Chris to leave Jacqueline?
