Dina Manzo On Her Return To RHONJ: "I'll Never Again Do A Reality Show With Family Ever Again!"

After leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey in 2010 amid lots of family drama, Dina Manzo is ready for a fresh start in the upcoming sixth season. It worked out that estranged sister Caroline Manzo and estranged sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita are no longer on the show, but Dina insists that she had nothing to do with Jacqueline's exit.

"I didn't get anyone fired," the reality star, 43, shares exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. "One of my first questions for the producers when I was invited back was, 'You're not getting rid of anyone because of me, right?' And they said, 'Absolutely not.'"

"Other than my daughter [Lexi, 18]—we share a bond that nothing can break—I will never do a reality show with family ever again," Dina, who's separated from husband Tommy Manzo. "It's just not a healthy environment."

For now, Dina is happy to be spending plenty of quality time with her BFF Teresa Giudice—and also giving her plenty of support as she faces legal issues. "She finds relief in our friendship because I'm not asking about the case," says Dina. "I don't give a sh-- about the details. I care about her and her family. When we talk, it's 'What are the kids doing? Let's go have lunch.'"

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 premieres on Sunday, July 13 at 8/7c on Bravo!
