In anticipation of upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, we’re  revisiting memorable moments from past season. Let’s go back to season 2 and reexamine the contentious Season 2 sit down between Danielle Staub and Dina Manzo.

RHONJ Season 1 ended with an epic Teresa Giudice table flip and an enemy line clearly drawn in the sand. Thus, when Season 2 began, it was Danielle versus the rest of the ‘Wives. The unwarranted gang was spearheaded by Dina Manzo.

Tensions in the Garden State were eventually running so high that Dina met with an energist to figure out how to get rid of all the negative energy around her. Following her energist’s advice, Dina set up a meeting with Danielle to cut her out of her life once and for all. However, Danielle was not having it and put the Zen bitch Dina in her place.


According to Dina, the aftermath of this encounter ultimately led to her decision to leave the show. Suuuuure, it did and if you believe that, I have a bridge for sale. (Read the truth behind Dina’s exit from the RHONJ here) 

Now Dina is back, rejoining the cast of RHONJ season 6 despite telling us (numerous times) the show was toxic.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns on Sunday, July 13, at 8 p.m. EST. Watch a preview clip below:
