The cold war is over! Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo is in a good place with her sister, Dina Manzo. The women have been estranged for three years.
In Touch is reporting the sisters are now civil to each other. Dina told the website “When we see each other, we kiss each other hello. We just don’t hang out for Sunday dinner, that’s all.”
Caroline told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she and Dina would say hello at family functions. However, the sisters would still give each other the cold shoulder. It has been reported the feud started due to Caroline not supporting her younger sister’s post Real Housewives of New Jersey projects. Dina quit the show half way through season two. Dina has decided to re-join the cast for the new season.
Now that the sisters have made up Dina told In Touch she will be attending her niece Lauren Manzo’s wedding. Lauren told Radar Online she was going to invite her aunt to her wedding regardless if her mom and aunt were fighting. She told Radar Online “It’s a sensitive topic, but at the end of the day, we’re still family.”
I’m thinking this war is at a cease fire and not over. If Dina and Caroline really made up they would be spending time together. Also, Caroline is a very controlling person. If she can’t keep her opinions to herself she will lose her sister again.
Who knows what happened to make the sisters be civil again. My guess is Dina wants her big sister’s support while she is going through her second divorce. Dina has been looking for a place to live in New York City. However, Dina is not financially independent. Perhaps she wants to live at Caroline’s house. Caroline said last season her house has always been open to anyone who needed somewhere to live. Right now Dina and Caroline’s sister Fran is living there while she goes through a divorce. Lauren is living there, too, until she gets married. Caroline loves having a full house and would enjoy having another sister living with her. She complained starting in season one that empty nest syndrome was hitting her hard.
