​The holiday season is in full swing, and it’s the time of year for warm and fuzzy togetherness for MOST families.

One “Real Housewives of New Jersey” family that no one would expect to be snuggling by the fire together, is all the members of the Manzo clan. The feud between sisters, Caroline and Dina Manzo has grown to epic heights, and Twitter has been a social media battleground for Dina and her sister-in-law Jacqueline, as well as between their daughters, cousins Lexi and Ashlee. ​

It looks like miracles do happen, as evidenced on Twitter and Instagram, where photos of the Manzo cousins on a holiday family outing in Manhattan were splashed all over, probably bringing their surprised followers to all sigh a collected AAAAAAWWWW! The biggest shocker was that Dina’s daughter, Lexi was included, and all of the cousins seemed to be laughing and having a good time.

Caroline and Al Manzo were the leaders of the pack, and Caroline was tweeting the details, even including her sister, Dina, in the giddy fun. GASP!! Is this forever feud finally fading away??

Caroline's tweet RHONJ

Caroline fondly posted the following photos of the happy family outing which includes Dina’s daughter, Lexi in many of the pics.

Just in case you’re wondering if this is a joke and we’re all on MTV’s “Punk’d,” think again. Dina Manzo confirmed the ceasefire, when she joined the love-parade by tweeting, “You’re all very kind. Things have been good for a bit just wanted to keep it private for a minute~Not everything needs to be done w cameras.”

Dina's tweet

Jacqueline Laurita also expressed her joy when she responded to another friendly tweet from Dina Manzo.

Jac responds to Dina Tweet

Could this be the first small step on a long road to reconciliation between Dina and Lexi…and the rest of the Manzos and Lauritas?  It looks like Lexi wants to move forward.  Let’s hope that her stubborn, spoiled mother follows her example, and this is just the beginning.

    That really is wondrous. You can see how happy Lexi is with her cousins/aunt/uncle.
    However, who is the chick with a giant bagel bun on top of her head?

    • Anne Green

      I think that’s Ashley…

  • Anne Green

    For years, I have never believed that there was a “rift” amongst this family. IMO, it was all hype for the TV show. We know that the cast is required to bring the “drama”, what better drama than a family feud. When Bravo saw the ratings, they required the feud to continue…..for a paycheck, the various Manzo’s agreed. Let’s face it, nothing about any of these shows is “for real”….right? Except, of course, that Teresa is a lying convicted felon!

  • Trippinhhard

    Good for them fighting with family members is not fun or easy. It too taxing because they are family and you love them..

  • TartLemon

    Dina suddenly wants to be friends with Caroline since Teresa is not available for the cooking show Dina wanted to use Teresa for. The show Teresa filmed on YouTube was for a DIY Channel. Same Channel Dina has tried but failed on several times.

    • twifan2

      Is Zender’s divorce imminent? She needing a place to stay?

      I actually do hope Zender has ‘seen the light’ & made up with her fambly…
      Time will tell.

      • OMG!!! I was thinking along those same lines….is Dina just securing a couch to sleep on after the divorce?!?

        • twifan2

          😀
          Zender should be on AHS! She’s that ‘twisted’! She can be Dandy’s sidekick-she won’t last long & he’d be doing us all a favor! 🙂

    • colleen

      Oh, that’s good observation, Tart. Most likely, it’s spot on

    • I was saying the exact same thing! I totally agree with you. Just phony.

    • shayvoe

      I would watch a cooking show with Caro, before any of the other’s. Caro can actually cook, even though she is only 1/16 Italian 😉

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Shay! And Caro would make a hell of a lot more sense than Tre.

    • Pinky Pie

      I think Dina slapped at Caroline during the reunion. Why was she saying, maybe you and Caroline could do a cooking show. What was that all about? I’m still puzzled.

      • twifan2

        Maybe it’s those epis like Tre & Zender are doing on YouTube only with Caroline with them? idk o.0

  • WestCoastFeed

    This is good holiday news. The cousins tweeted more pix and Ashlee included a thank you to Caroline and Al for arranging the bus to take them all there.

    • Pinky Pie

      Okay, Ashlee thanking anyone, for anything, cannot be true. :). 🙂

      • WestCoastFeed

        Honest, it actually happened. She has matured some. Not enough, but some.

        • Pinky Pie

          Maybe her drug use changed her chemically? Or, does Ashlee think Bravo is going to hire her and she won’t have to work?

  • It’s about time! I’m happy their TRYING to repair the fractured relationship. Lets hope all the parties involved in the rift make a sincere effort to heal and move one.

  • colleen

    Dina’s tweet to Caroline was laced with sarcasm. IMO. I read it as; Its cool Lexi is with you but why couldn’t you keep your damn big mouth closed for awhile.

    • MorningYawn

      #Agree ! It was not that long ago that Dina and Jac were ripping each other on twitter… I mean, last month??

      • Pinky Pie

        Do you think something personal happened and it was breaking their mother’s heart? So, a truce was called for their mom’s sake? I think you’re right, It seems a little to unbelievable.

        • MorningYawn

          I think Lexi might have been in the loop with the cousins for a while – just maybe not Ashley. Hopefully the parents can keep their issues amongst themselves and away from the children! Is that giving too much credit- lol?

          • Pinky Pie

            I don’t know about too much credit. They all certainly like to drag each other threw the mud. I wonder how long the truce will last. I don’t think they like each other. This seems too much too soon after so much sadness and fighting.

    • AGREED!! Dina was definitely throwing shade. Just shows how controlling she is over everything.

  • cait

    Dimna still looking for the elusive storyline she has never had so she’s latching on to Caro and Co’s poss return to Joisey ! What a “Shakey Fakey” Poor Lexi !

    • Hey Cait. How have you been?

      • cait

        On Wed the medics telling me how well I looked and was thriving ! Then I got weighed and was a measly 87lbs, over a stone less than I thought ! Cried a bit but they say it’s OK. My diet now is desserts, cream, cheese, milk etc !Many, many calories ! Sadly, I prefer savoury and plain food ! Stuff your desserts, Tre, I ain’t eating your Felon Cocktail !

        • Pinky Pie

          Hi Cait!
          Sounds like you’re having a rough time. This calls for a box of donuts! I was eating them by the box a couple of years ago. I took my work a little too seriously. I gained about 30 pounds. Get your favorites, or have someone get them for you. My aunt brought me some cookies once long ago, she said, “You know how you have a family?” I said, “Yes,” thinking here it comes. My aunt says, “Don’t share with them.” I laughed so hard, because I thought I was going to get a lecture about sharing, it was the opposite. I did share, but not that much. I hope you feel better and gain a ton, okay, not a ton that might be too much! But, the doughnuts didn’t make me sick, and I did gain. XX

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          Sorry to hear that Cait. Sending you well wishes & good vibes across the miles.

          I agree. No sprinkle cookies & Felonillini for you. That’s just wrong. Cruel even, lol! Not when there are so many better choices.

          Just knowing the little bit you’ve shared & all that you have been through. I can say that you are one strong & spirited lady Cait.
          In other words…You my dear are a bad ass! All my best to you Hon.

        • Cait, truly sorry to hear you’re going through all of this. Many have asked about you and were concerned. Very happy to see you posting again. Stay strong. I’m sending you love and prayers for a speedy recovery.♥︎

        • twifan2

          Just take slow & steady, cait!
          You’ll get there. 🙂
          & with your sanity intact too. 😉

  • On one hand, it’s great that they’ve “patched up” their differences, but on the other hand, I question the motives behind this sudden mea culpa. I’m not a Caroline fan by any stretch of the imagination, I can only tolerate Jacqueline in small doses, but to me, Dina is only making up because of the rumors that Caro and Jac are returning next season and she doesn’t want to be outed.

    • twifan2

      TY!
      I’m also thinking Zender’s divorce is finalizing soon & she needs a place to stay, $$$. SO, she has to ‘play nice’. That won’t last long. Wonder who’ll break first?

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Hey Miss Twi!!! Hope you are well. Today is gorgeous here!!!

  • italiano bambino

    But dina is all about the cameras me think is BS

  • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

    Glad to see the family having fun. For what ever reasons or intentions, be they good, self-serving, fake or forced, it looks like they were at least able to set differences aside for awhile & have some fun in the Big Apple at Christmas time.

    Hope they will be able to continue down this path & truly learn to be happy with & for each other.

    I could imagine some really fun scenes with all the cousins going out or taking trips together. Like playing adult jousting, or jumping on the velcro wall or going into a giant inflatable maze or human-hamster balls. LOL!
    Oh wait, this is Bravo. Those scenes would never make it to air-time. Oh well…

  • whose gonna do my hair!

    $$$ is what rips families and friends apart!! For men: Money and Sex! Enjoy while you can, I’m not watching.

  • shayvoe

    Could this be because Dina wants to film next season, lord knows she needs the money, and knows she has to make up with Jacs and Caro to do that? Whatever the reason…it’s good for the kids. Baby steps.

    • Hey Shay……Insightful one you are. Dina seems to self-centered to behave maturely overnight. I’m not buying her intentions on this truce.

      • shayvoe

        Hi….I’m not buying it either…Dina ia all about Dina, and if it means she has a job and an income…she would make up with the devil, if she had to.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Yes, I think she really needs the money and she is the one who would be begging Andy to be hired for another season.

          • shayvoe

            That is exactly what I think too WCF!

        • Spot on! That’s Dina to a tee. She’s all about DINA and would manipulate her own daughter into believing she wants to make up to get her child to do her dirty work. Dina scares me more than Tre does. She’s an evil and twisted joker.

          • shayvoe

            Yeah…with Tre you know what you are getting….Dina is sneaky and you never know what she is up to.

      • shayvoe

        Hi Doc…I didn’t know that was you when I replied below. Waving!!!

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    It’s hard for me to get into NJ because I don’t watch the show. I used to but I just can’t stand anyone on it. I am still interested in seeing Teresa get the punishment she deserves but I don’t give a crap about any of these other assholes. As far as I’m concerned, they can all punch each other’s faces and flip tables. 🙂

    • Pinky Pie

      That is about the entertainment value of this show. I think they have too many dark haired women with long hair. And, none of them do anything of interest. I was trying to remember the dynamics of this show when it started. Teresa didn’t start acting like an animal until the table flip. I could tell Caroline wasn’t truly friends with anyone, except Dina. Dina was bland then. Jacqueline was always a little out there. Then, the table flip and I could tell Teresa was faking niceness after that, and it began to be the Teresa show, which I thought was boring. Danielle let the cat out of the bag, and reality began to overlap with the show. Teresa’s obnoxious behavior got out of control, and that’s when I didn’t want to watch, but was intrigued by if they would get caught. The new women look too much alike. I cannot keep track of who’s who and what they did last week. I would love to see a show like Desperate Housewives, where they were friends most of the time.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I liked this show in the beginning but when it became so dark–what with Teresa and Joe’s criminal behavior and the breaking down of family relationships–it became too, too much for me. To me, family is so important. Many of my family members have done things I don’t like/appreciate but we stick together no matter what. I cannot imagine going on national television and airing our family’s dirty laundry. It just DISGUSTED me. And all for a buck, which made me disrespect every single person on this show–and even more, Bravo. In fact, that’s about the time I started tuning out of the HW shows. I only watch BH–and I’m seriously wondering why I’m doing that anymore when there are so many better ways to spend my time.

        I think of NJ as a symbol of the malignant cancer that is spreading throughout our country: people wanting more than they have and doing whatever they can to get it–no matter who it hurts and how it hurts. That show is FAR from entertainment to me–it’s just a disgusting snapshot of greed, narcissism and showing off. I won’t support it.

        But I also know that to each her own–I don’t disparage anyone for liking it/watching it–heck, I have my own (questionable) dirty secrets of shows I enjoy (that I feel guilty about enjoying–LOL).

        • Pinky Pie

          I get it! It seems like they want to show the dirty side of life. I got caught up with trying to catch the lying Teresa was telling. I wanted her to get caught. The way Teresa made fun of less fortunate people was so disgusting to me. It was the overlap between real life events and her reality was like watching a train wreck. I won’t watch unless Bravo changes characters and makes it a happy show. I don’t know real friends that fight like on this show. Friends are nice to each other.
          All of these woman look like plastic sex dolls. I think women are so much more then that.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I hear you! I have never in my life treated any friend or family member the way these women treat each other on a regular basis. Mind boggling!

  • WestCoastFeed

    In other NJ news, Teresa took the girls to see Nene in Cinderella last night.

    • cait

      WHAAATTT ! A Moose in the lovely Cinder’s story ? Maybe she was a step Moose ! Jeez, that show must have been an Ugly Bugs Ball !

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yes, she plays the wicked step-mother. Type-casting again for her.

        • Pinky Pie

          Perfect casting! No one does mean like Nene.

    • twifan2

      Oh, they got free tickets? 😉

      • Pinky Pie

        Oh, yes, sure. Every since Teresa became a convicted felon, and the Feds have been watching her, Teresa gets free tickets to everything. Her fans are going to give her a mansion to live in for free when she gets out! Wee! The new life, fresh start, is about to begin. It’s all free, all the time.

      • I’m sure she did but she should have declined.

    • Marsbars09

      Her new BFF. You know Moose said she’d be willing to visit Tre in prison, don’t you?

      • WestCoastFeed

        Those two could be in a “Biggest Ego” contest.

      • cait

        Hey Marsy, good news ! That should add years to her sentence !

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Cait! Moose visiting Tre will add more years to her sentence? Sorry, but I don’t understand.

          • cait

            If I was the Judge, I would do it just for fun and lock No-No up as well ! You guys and the English have such a limited sense of humour !

          • Marsbars09

            The AATT family has a limited sense of humor?! No honey, we have plenty of it and then some! 😀

    • The nerve…..I swear she has ZERO shame!!! SMDH!!!!

  • cait

    No one responded to my query as to why Bravo hired 3 ugli-bug Melissa pretend lookalikes and Dina-rod (always in the sewer) ? Don’t like any of ’em !

    • WestCoastFeed

      The twins and dina have not been well-received.

      • cait

        Amber Thing is also repulsive ! Who is naughty or nice on this prog ?

        • WestCoastFeed

          Amber’s husband is the worst. Kathy Wakile is nice, but alas got downgraded to friend. Melissa tried to pretty much fly under the radar this year and at least appear supportive of Teresa.

        • Pinky Pie

          Hi everyone! You mean, Amber and her idiot husband. I cannot stand to look at them. Jim is a creep, jerk, idiot. The scam that guy pulled should have landed in prison, but I think he got lucky. Jim is despicable. I wonder if Real Housewives isn’t a set up by the government to catch thieves. I hope the Feds pull Jim in and shake him down.

          • twifan2

            PINKY PIE!!! Hi Hi! 🙂
            I see ‘your friend’ is back! 😀

  • Dana

    Caroline and Jacqueline want to come back to the show so they’re using Dina to do it. Don’t believe them Dina, they are using you to come back season 7. There is no show without Teresa and Bravo has stopped all filming until she comes home in 2016.

    • cait

      Dana, Joke, Surely ! Dina getting someone back in the show when these guys are so popular with many viewers and Dina disliked by anyone sane !

      • Dana

        Dina has more fans than those wenches. Wacko Jacko does not have fans. I don’t see any support for her but I see plenty for Dina and Teresa.

        • cait

          Sorry babe, I know I’m very ill at mo, but there must be somewhere else you can TreDi hug that doesn’t involve us Tea People ! We don’t do vitriol hon !

        • WestCoastFeed

          If twitter followers are an indication of fan base, both Caroline and Jacqueline have almost twice the number Dina has.

    • twifan2

      Again I say PUT the Felonellini down!
      ROTFLMAO—>’Caroline and Jacqueline want to come back to the show so they’re using Dina to do it.’ GIRL!!! You are hilarious! :’D

      • Dana

        That’s true. Caroline and Whacko Jacko want back on and are using Dina to do it. This is clear as day and many see it not me alone.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Let me give you my optometrist’s name and phone number. Dina is a bore and will be lucky if Bravo asks her back. So far, the only interest she provided was being a foil against Jim Marchese.

          • Pinky Pie

            And, even that wasn’t interesting. Dina’s boring, and Jim is to sleazy to look at!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Bravo could bring Caroline and Jac back to be their sympathetic selves, and then just tell Dina, “Why don’t you and Jim fight?” Let those two destroy each other.

          • Pinky Pie

            Agree, but if Caroline was there Dina would start it, hide and EXPECT Caroline to finish it.

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          What was Dina’s story line this past season? Other than being Tre’s side-kick, showing us her ridiculous closet & her pets?
          Oh & inserting herself into the fray on mutherphucker gate?

          • Dana

            Dina’s storyline is rebuilding her life after divorce. Her story is motivational and could inspire other women going through the same. Dina was also the peacemaker this season and she had some funny one-liners as she battled Marcheezy and Ambuh.

          • twifan2
          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Rebuilding her life after divorce? Staying in her Ex’s house & still having relations with him is rebuilding?
            Wow what an inspiration?
            Where were all these inspirational acts you speak of?
            What changed in Dina’s life, all season long?
            Put down the Felonlini girl it’s frying your brain.

          • Marsbars09

            LOL! Tell her T-lily!

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            LMBO!

          • Double Boom!!!!

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Did you see anything inspirational for women to emulate from Dina?
            Did I miss something? LOL!
            She still stays in the house with her EX & has sex with him even though she knows he messes with around with multiple other women.
            WTF??? Inspirational?

          • You nailed it, GF!!!

          • cait

            AFTER DIVORCE, and very poor, I did barmaid work and office cleaning plus my part-time day job ! Came home after more than 70 hrs work per week, with a smile on my face cos this was MY LIFE ! Get your ass in gear Dumbo-Zen.

          • Pinky Pie

            Wow! Talk about a work ethic! You’re my idol! Seriously, you’re my idol! I don’t know how you got through that! You have such a strong spirit!

          • shayvoe

            The only thing Dina can teach anyone is how to mooch off of your family when you are down and out, then stab them in the back when you don’t need them anymore, and then cozy up to them for more mooching when you need them again. Oh, and how to be a gold digger by marrying wealthy men. Do you get the common theme here? “How to live off of other people 101”.

          • Dana

            Jacqueline is a drunken bully, Jacqueline and her daughter are just horrible people.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Why so much hate, Dana?. Jac is a wonderful mother. Think of her children.

          • Pinky Pie

            Good one! Ha, ha! Meaning throw the same line back at Dana! Perfect!

            Dina’s storyline is rebuilding her life after divorce… Dana dina storyline was as boring as her personality. what’s there to watch..

        • twifan2

          AND that’s why Zender is playing nice(2 faced nice)! She doesn’t want them calling her out for all tvland to see. AND that’s why they’ll be back! 🙂
          I might even watch then…nvm! 😀

          • Pinky Pie

            Hi Twi! Ha, ha! If anyone is using anyone, it is Dina using the other two. Dina is too boring to hold anyone’s attention

      • Pinky Pie

        That one ( your’s) has me laughing! You know teenagers always trying to sneak booze! Dana’s mom will be so upset!

    • Oh Puleeeese Dana. This scenario sounds like the other way around. Dina brought nothing in season 6 and is desperate to come back. I HIGHLY doubt Bravo will ask her back. She’s boring as hell. Also, Bravo has NOT halted filming until Tre’s serves her prison sentence. That’s ludicrous!!!

      • Pinky Pie

        I was thinking about Dina earlier. From the very first season Dina was boring. You are so right Cheer!

    • Dave

      I want whatever you’re smoking.

    • shayvoe

      Jac was asked back last season and both Caro and Jac were asked back for next season. It is Dina who has not been asked back. Now, she wants a job, and is making nice with her family in hopes Bravo will think all is well and she will and it will make for a good storyline.

      • Dana

        Believe what you want but Dina has been asked back and she declined. Bravo wants her back, Dina doesn’t want to come back. She’s already said this many times. Caroline and Whacko Jacko’s being asked back are rumors.

        • twifan2

          GF! You are ssssooooo full of…

          • Pinky Pie

            I think she was assigned to the restroom clean up team because she kept getting caught on her phone commenting on blogs. Scrub, scrub… No gloves! 🙂

          • Pinky Pie

            I missed you today! Our internet connection is struggling today…weather?

          • Hey Pinky Pie! Sorry about the slow internet connection. Hope you’re having a good day besides that.

          • Pinky Pie

            It’s a great day when I get to spend it with all of you! How about you Cheer, how’s your day going? Are you buying that the Manzo/Laurita truce? Or, did Bravo offer a ton of money for a truce? It seems questionable!

          • I think it’s genuine on Caro/Jac’s part but not Dina’s. I feel there’s an ulterior motive with Dina reconciling now.

          • Pinky Pie

            Me too. I don’t trust Dina at all.

          • Pinky Pie

            Omg! Watching weather coverage. The freeway I use to go to the Dr.’s is flooded big time. Wow, looks like they need boats instead of cars. Yikes! My husband wants to put a rowboat in our pool. He thinks it is the perfect day to reenact the movie “The Perfect Storm.” 🙂 🙂 He is such a nut! 🙂

          • Hi Pinky! Your hubby sounds like quite the character! Great sense of humor he has. That storm sounds very serious so please be careful out there.

            The rowboat is rocking on the waves. I wish he would paddle us to safety! 🙂 whose crazy idea was this? A wave just slapped me in the face! 🙂 thank you for your kind words! I did get pretty lucky. We’re fine. Completely safe, but I heard the roof of a Safeway collapsed across town. I hope no one was hurt. We went from drought to flash flood warnings. How weird is that?! Again, thank you for your kind words. How about you? Are you experiencing bad weather? I hope not. I’ll picture you on a tropical island at an amazing resort. Oh, how nice the just brought you a pretty tropical drink…Cheers!

            I have been waiting in line for my fries for hours! 🙁

          • Pinky Pie

            Ha, ha, ha! That’s pretty good! Your so quick witted! Me likey!

          • twifan2

            I thanks you! My lappy thanks you. 🙂
            I actually thought I’d never get out of Mickey Ds tonite! 😮
            CROWDED!
            AND I didn’t have my lappy with me to work on pics while I waited-PURE AGONY! :'(

          • Pinky Pie

            Missed you. Our internet struggled today, so I was off. I know what you mean, I use an iPad, and copy, cut, or paste makes me want to start flipping tables and screaming like a gorilla in a cage. Hmmm, am I reminding you of anyone?! 🙂

          • twifan2

            :/
            Does that person have no forehead? 🙂

          • Pinky Pie

            Ha, ha! Don’t bother me right now. I’m trying to follow along on Teresa and Dina’s cooking show. aka: oh, no! (Don’t trust T. & D.) I’m order pizza, the drive through is too long at Mickey D’s. (Just joking around. Bother me anytime you want! ! ) 🙂

          • twifan2

            🙂
            I’m feeding Chats the rest of my ice cream. Look seeing him get brain freezes! 😀

          • Pinky Pie

            Yum! Chats likes ice cream? Teresa’s recipe for Chats: lightly sprinkle with catnip. Ha, she wouldn’t have that clear of instruction, or that good of a recipe. I do think Chats would like it!

          • Pinky Pie

            Twi, I just want to say that I think you are funny. It is hard to keep up with you and your wit! I hope you didn’t take my ridiculous comment about not bothering me as real. I wasn’t making dinner, or even eating it. I just thought you would think it was funny if I tried to follow Teresa instructions. I haven’t watched her video at all. I have my own blog. It has a “hidden count” of how many people visit per day, and the duration of stay. For that reason alone, I will not watch the video. I do not want her to give her credit for viewers. My apologies to you if my crazy remark felt rude. I would never want to be rude to you or anyone else on here. (Except Teresa Trolls). So, I am sorry if my comment came off as rude. I know you wouldn’t tell me, but I realized later what I had written. I enjoy you and Chats. You’re the best.

            Okay. You need to give out warnings. Almost fried my laptop on that one.

          • twifan2

            Not too much salt on my fries, please. 🙂
            Heck, I dropped cheese on mine. Chats licked it clean for me. 🙂

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            What a pal. Always lookin’ out for you. Good kitty.

          • twifan2

            He’s gotta earn his keep! 😉

          • Pinky Pie

            Yeah, she is directing traffic outside at the drive through! Twi, you are so much fun! 🙂 thank you for always making me laugh and never flipping a table at me! 🙂

          • twifan2

            You most welcomed, Pinky Pie! 🙂
            We gotta laugh or else Tre will make us so angry we’ll be crying! >'(

          • Pinky Pie

            And that crazy teenage troll make she laugh, too.

          • Pinky Pie

            You’re so clever! Grinning from ear to ear! Thanks!

          • twifan2

            🙂
            YW!

          • italiano bambino

            LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Bwahahahaha!!!!!!!

        • Addie2U

          The only reason Dina wouldn’t want to come back is because her BFF Teresa won’t be there. Those 2 are make a great team — they’re the 2 most delusional, hypocritical people on the show (maybe of the entire series).

  • Dave

    Good to see the family coming together. Life is too short. I’ve lost friends and family members over nothing only to later regret senseless feuding. I would like to see reconciliation in season 7.

    • WestCoastFeed

      A family reconciliation would be nice. I think Bravo would have to beg and plead to get Caroline to come back again, unless Dina shows sincere signs of wanting to end the feud.

      • Dave

        Bravo could benefit from family reconciliation after many seasons of families fighting. I’m tired of the show but would watch if reconciliation is part of the new season.

    • Ditto Dave!!

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      ITA. Caroline told Andy she would come back as a “friend” if Lauren was cast as a HW. I think they are definitely planning the have the Manzos and Lauritas back – perhaps that forced Dina’s hand? It’s either make up or get off the show and now Tommy’s out of the picture she probably won’t want to turn down Bravo money.

  • WestCoastFeed

    A couple of hours ago, Caroline responded to a tweet by saying that Jac and Chris (Laurita) are part of the reconciliation. Sounds like it really is happening for all of them, not just the cousins.

    • twifan2

      Oh I really do hope they all can stay reconciled! 🙂

    • This makes me very happy. I was worried Dina would pull that crap and exclude Jac and Chris again. Hopefully Dina’s motives are sincere and they can love each other again but I know things between them will never be the same.

  • Marsbars09

    Well hallelujah! The ice has finally been broken. Let’s hope the family relationship will continue to improve.

  • WestCoastFeed

    ROL has just posted this reconciliation story and includes quotes from Jac that they also all had Thanksgiving dinner together and little Nick got to bond with Dina.

    • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

      A day late & a dollar short. Both ROL & Dina. LOL!

    • Bad Barbie

      That’s good for Nic. The more love the merrier.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        I agree BB. He & CJ deserve lots of love!

  • Norrth

    I hope it’s genuine and that Dina isn’t just trying to save what’s left of her reputation after her behavior this past year on the show and at the reunion. I wonder if Teresa will try to rain on the Manzo-Laurita parade.

    • MorningYawn

      T will rain on that parade as fast as you can say “zen”

      • Norrth

        She will Dina the same treatment she gave Jacq!

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Glad to see them on the mend. Maybe Dina coming back to RHONJ opened her eyes a little. It may have been a bit painful for us viewers but it was for the greater good 🙂

  • murlut

    Tommy must have kicked her out, she has no income and now she needs a couch from Caroline yet again

    That image was so cute of santa trying to see if I can recreate for my cousins

  • whose gonna do my hair!

    Family and money are not a good mix, family and business, too.
