Dina Manzo Admits She Hasn’t Spoken To Her Sister Caroline Manzo In Two Years!

Dina Manzo recently opened up about her complicated relationship with sister Caroline Manzo. “Caroline does not speak to me at all … we haven’t spoken in two years,” the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum said during an appearance on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live.

Dina furthered explained that reality TV changes people — and apparently that was a contributing factor to their fallout. “People become [caricatures] of themselves. A little part of what people say that they liked, they tend to put it on.”

As you may recall, Dina, Caroline and their sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita along with Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub appeared in the first season of the Bravo hit reality series, which Dina edned up leaving halfway of the show during Season 2. Meanwhile Caroline and Jacqueline stayed on the show until the fifth season.

Dina made her return to the show during the show's sixth season, which by then her relationship with her family was was nearly non-existent, according to PEOPLE.

“I think we all changed but there was a point when I left — because I really quit after season 1, but part of my deal was I had to film some of season 2,” she said. “It was when I didn’t recognize who she was any more that I said, ‘I’m out.’ ”

Dina said she was shocked when she watched the show back and saw some of the hurtful things her sister said about her.

“And then the television thing [factored in] after I watched season 1. I was saying very nice things about them and watching back, they weren’t doing the same for me. So I was like, ‘What the f—?’ Is there envy going on here. They don’t want me to look good?’ I don’t know, but it freaked me out.”

Meanwhile, Dina says she is still close with her brother Chris (who is married to RHONJ alum Jacqueline Laurita).

“Chris, I saw him not too long ago, when we lived in Malibu and he came out and we had a nice dinner,” she said. “We don’t see each other often because we’re on different coasts. But we’re definitely fine. And Jacqueline as well. If they called me tomorrow and they needed me, I’ll be there. They’re great.”

Despite her fallout with sister Caroline, Dina claims she doesn't wish she doesn’t have any ill wishes for her sister.

“Maybe becoming a grandmother has brought her back down to earth,” she said.
