Manzo’d With Children star, Caroline Manzo, joined Andy Cohen in the Watch What Happens clubhouse on Sunday night and things got a little crazy. 

The drama started when Dina Manzo tweeted during the live show — not to give a nod to her sister, but to give encouragement to Siggy. “@siggyflicker gives great advice. You go, girl,” Dina posted.

Dina‘s obvious passive-aggressive shade, prompted Andy to asks if things were currently good between Caroline and DinaCaroline slowly shook her head and spilled tea about the state of her relationship with her baby sister. 

“It’s over!” The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star declared. Caroline continued, “What are you going to do? You can’t get blood out of a rock.”

Caroline, let the cat out of the bag and Dina snapped, tweeting a response, “I’m sick with the flu for seven days, and I’m not in the mood for this shit. I said one day I will snap and I might be about to.”

Caroline had no response but Dina was just getting started and blasted back with blistering tweets, exposing the bitter family fall out. 

Dina blasted Caroline for going public with their sisterly conflict.

Dina justified her apparent snub of Caroline by tweeting that Andy or a caller would have questioned the status of their sisterly relationship anyway.

Fans disagreed and were not shy in calling Dina out.

The former Mrs. Manzo then dragged her parents into the social media ugliness. Noting that, “My parents can’t be hurt anymore than they are now.”

Dina‘s fever induced delirium continued when she acknowledged a fan spilling tea about a DM (Direct Message) supposedly from Caroline  blaming Dina for their drama.

RHONJ alum, Danielle Staub, couldn’t resist the drama and tweeted, “Andy, why the double standard? Caroline Manzo, you didn’t allow anyone to be friends with me, but now…”

Caroline responded by leaning forward in her seat and staring into the camera, “Because, Danielle Staub, thanks for watching, number one. And number two, you and I did not have any kind of relationship. So, I don’t want to be around the people that are around you. So, maybe it’s my end. Twitter world, go for it.”

Danielle tweeted one more time, “Caroline, you didn’t exactly answer my question. Caroline, as usual, you say a lot of words, but you say nothing.”

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    Surprised Dina took time away from her gold digging and blood sucking wealthy men to care?

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    As much as I dislike Dina, I dislike Caroline even more. I have no idea why Andy keeps renewing this show when it appears that no one watches it. These Manzos are insufferable. Does anyone know exactly WHAT is the feud between Caroline and Dina?

    • MidwestMiddie

      This “feud” —– I have no idea what it is about and don’t care enough
      to ever want to know the answer.

      • Apple

        Teresa, mainly. Dina disagreed with they way Caroline and Jacqueline treated Tre and her 42 charges of bank and mail fraud….but it could have been anything, really. Dina seems impossible to get along with…and there have always been problems with her. I think could work with Caroline and Jacqueline…there would be screaming and crying, but you could get to the bottom of it and move on with them.

        • MidwestMiddie

          The last time I watched the show was the RHNJ Reunion where Dina professed her deep love for The Felon and said how she
          would visit her and be there for Tre’s family during the prison stint.
          I think Dina was a Zero Show for a Prison Vitiator’s Pass and I can’t recall her ever being seen with Tre’s girls while their mother was away.
          You know if she had treated the girls to a good time …..there would
          have been photos in the press. : /

          • Apple

            I never saw anything about Diva Manzo visiting Tre…or her Goddaughter, Audriana while Tre was at “camp”.

          • the underground train

            She did visit Audrianna while Tre was at camp. It was on her SM.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Ahhh…… okay that was nice of her. Too bad she had to take pictures
            and then post them on SM.

          • the underground train

            I don’t think she visited Tre but she definitely visited Audriana while Tre was away.

          • JrzShoreLady

            She was already living in CA with her boyfriend by the time Tre went to camp.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Yes she was living in CA and Dina, also, made several trips back to New Jersey during The Felon’s prison stint.

        • XOXO

          I think the last thing Caroline should be judging Teresa for is fraud. It seems to me that Caroline and her distracted husband have their own issues with money and fraudulent behavior.

          Glass houses?

          Kettle black??

          For sure.

          • Apple

            Rumors regarding the Manzos and the syndicate…their financial and legal difficulties…and Al’s long term mistress have been out there forever…and yet, nothing ever sticks. Now Teresa, she was convicted and served 11 months in camp….which most consider getting off easy for stealing millions of dollars.
            Apples and Oranges.

          • the underground train

            Their tax liens are definitive. No getting around that.

          • Apple

            Tax liens are actually pretty common in the restaurant business…usually in regards to sales tax. The amount and various categories are probably being disputed. Until Albert Manzo is charged with a crime…or “Jill”, his supposed mistress comes forward and presents some kind of proof, I am reserving judgement.

        • Mental Iceberg ????

          I always thought it was something deeper than that.

          Her bearding for Tommy, and then the marriage ending?

          • sideof Sour Cream

            or maybe much more shallow–like milking these 15 minutes of infamy for all they’re worth.

          • Mental Iceberg ????

            No, I meant their family feud, lol.

            But I do agree. Actually all “reality” tv people try to milk their 15 minutes.

            Although, I don’t think this is what Andy meant when he said “In the future everyone will be world famous for 15 minutes” 🙁

          • sideof Sour Cream

            I mean the feud as well. I think they keep it public to try & keep themselves relevant. Otherwise, why tweet at all?
            If Caro were my sister I’d cancel Bravo, and I’d delete my twitter.

          • Mental Iceberg ????

            Gotcha!

            Seriously, if was “famous” I’d only use Twitter like Yoko Ono does. She only tweets out positive stuff and doesn’t engage.

            I seriously don’t understand using a medium to air your dirty laundry, drunk thoughts, arguments, etc.

            I liked “celebrities” so much better back in the olden days, before social media and thinking they need to vomit out every single thought they have to the world 🙁

          • sideof Sour Cream

            SAME. HERE. 🙂

          • Apple

            Did you see the VH1 My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding with Diva Manzo? It was before Housewives…and suffice to say…I am Team Tommy all the way.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Apparently Dina is miffed that Caroline didn’t “support” her when she decided to leave the show. I suspect that Dina blamed Jac for telling Danielle that she had forged her ex’s signature to allow Lexi to film on the show and when Caroline didn’t cut off Jac and storm out with her Dina cut off Caroline and Jac.

    • SMDRN66

      Caroline blamed Teresa for her and Dina’s issues, but Dina has publicly said, over and over, that it had nothing to do with Teresa. The problem was with Caroline siding with Wacko Jacko. Teresa was never a factor. Actually, Dina cut ties with all of them after she left the show. Even distanced herself with Teresa because she felt she needed a break from all the fallout of the show. Teresa reached out to her because of her back stabbing brother and SIL, and this time, they stayed friends.

    • JrzShoreLady

      I read that this last feud took place at Lauren’s wedding. Even though Dina was still married to Tommy (Al’s brother & co-owner of The Brownstone) she decided to bring her new man to the reception & this caused all kinds of arguments & allegedly a fight broke out between Dina’s boyfriend & someone else, and Chris Manzo tried breaking up fight.

      • Apple

        I read that, too.

  • Apple

    Dina distanced herself from Bravo because she disagrees with the way her family behaves on the show and doesn’t want their family issues to be on display …so why Tweet into Andy in the middle of the show and start shit?

    • MidwestMiddie

      Attention Whore ………….an Ego Impairment Suffered by Most Everyone in the Family.

      • Apple

        Truth.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Dina loves to play holier than thou. She claims she distanced herself but yet as soon as Tre was on the outs with Caroline she went and filmed with her and got a little dig in. Caroline said very little about their fall out in all the seasons she was on the show.

  • MidwestMiddie

    What’s up with Caroline’s man-like appearance and it has to be more than her
    haircut and color? I mean look at how she dressed last night. So feminine …….NOT !
    BRAVO GET RID OF THIS WORTHLESS BORING FAMILY!!

    • Apple

      Noooo.I like this show. It is funny.

      • MidwestMiddie

        OK…..for you and the show’s few fans, I do wish you luck but you’d better
        begin a Viewer Recruitment Canvas because I’m pretty sure the ratings
        are quite low. : /

        • Apple

          Thanks. They actually hold their own in their category…(Ladies of London…Flipping Out)…and hover just under a million viewers.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’m one of them. It’s my favorite Bravo show.

          • Apple

            OMG…I am virtually hugging you. I usually feel like the Lone Ranger on these boards. I like these people… I like the Sunday dinners…and how they irritate each other…but really love each other…and how Caroline just says what she really thinks….and I think they are really funny…especially Christopher and Albie’s friend ..Greggie Bennett.
            I could hang with these peeps.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Greggy has been my favorite since the NJ show began. He is so clever. And Christopher is a delight.

          • Weeds1

            I like them well enough but the show is boring. Don’t watch NJ, OC but love Melbourne and NY!

    • XOXO

      I thought the same thing. Maybe Caroline needs to make up with Dina and ask her to give her a makeover.

      • MidwestMiddie

        LOL

    • Gibney13

      I think she’s following the Hillary Clinton school of fashion.

      • MidwestMiddie

        No Way!!! Hillary has more style, class and intelligence than Caroline or any of the Trumps. : )

        • Gibney13

          Ok, ok. I won’t pile on someone so sick and infirm… ;D

          We’ll disagree but I still love you Middie!

          • MidwestMiddie

            Yes, we’ll have to agree to disagree.
            Politics doesn’t belong on this site, imo.
            BTW – I don’t consider your comment piling on but I do
            know you are supporting a HUGE ANTI-AMERICAN PILE of ……..!

            PS – I still love you, too, Gibney13. : )
            LOL

          • Apple

            Lol

          • Weeds1

            I hate both of them…she has lied her entire career and he’s flat out nuts. A pox on both their houses.

          • Gibney13

            I’m not supporting- just think he is the lesser evil and as obnoxious as he is I think he has the skills to fix this corrupt system. Ok- no more!! 😀

          • MidwestMiddie

            Please do some research on your own before Election Day. : )

          • Gibney13

            Oh believe me- I have.

          • Chickpea16

            Kissing Putin’s butt because he personally owes Russia and China money. He’s going to fix things alright. Rant over.

          • Mental Iceberg ????

            Yeah, I come here to escape “reality” a bit. I get all the politics I need on the news or at Jez.

    • wellWellwell

      Hi MM, did Andy ask her about Al’s tax problems..didn’t think so.

    • Apple

      She had a foot issue (injury or surgery or both) and was laid up all summer. She gained 30 lbs and is now trying to take it off. She is working with Albie’s trainer and is currently down 15 lbs. She has never really cared about fashion or beauty, but isn’t feeling all that good about herself right now….and is focusing on her health….and I kinda like that about her.
      I would never go on TV (or to the grocery store) looking like that, but I admire someone who will.
      Short answer…she doesn’t care.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Thanks for the background information but it still doesn’t excuse her from
        losing all her femininity and looking like a man.
        Isn’t she supposed to be the loving caring wife fighting off rumors about her husband having mistresses? She’s just given him an excuse to stray!! : /

        • Apple

          Nah…she is a wife and mother…not a plastic f*ck doll. I don’t know where you live, but she looked better than most of the people I interact with daily…in pajama pants and crocs with their hair scraped up and wrapped in a scrunchie.

          • MidwestMiddie

            You have to admit she has always looked more feminine than masculine and right now, she looks quite manly. I just don’t get it.

          • Apple

            It’s not a good look. I agree. I like her in jeans and boots and sweaters… and her hair short, but softer and much lighter. But she seems to have an issue with all the time and attention paid to the “over the top” fashion, hair and make-up on Bravo…and how she looks every season. It is not her thing. She also doesn’t feel very good about herself right now….so she is just like…f*ck it. I think it’s pretty gutsy, because she will definitely get a lot of sh*t for it.

        • Y2K1

          Wow! A woman’s look gives a man an excuse to stray? What effin world and era do You live in? No wonder women don’t come forward with sexual assaults when there r still women like YOU in the world. Disgusting comment!

          • MidwestMiddie

            Get over yourself!
            The comment was made in regard to Caroline and her husband’s past history on the show and has NO BEARING on women being sexually assaulted and their reporting such attacks being taken seriously.
            Eye Roll.

      • kikid26

        Caroline and Albert are the only ones that have been on RHONJ that truly had a legit profitable business and were also REAL people. Staub, Gorga’s, Laurita’s, and of course the Guidice’s, as well as all the other single-season imbeciles really, didn’t have any money or claims to fame. They’re all a bunch of fakes borrowing, stealing, and scraping to appear like they’re somebody when in real world reality they’re all just a bunch of pathetic poseurs that are one step away from bankruptcy, and many aren’t even that far! I respect Caroline for being herself….though I’d at least have had my hair done and put on some lip gloss knowing I was going on TV 😉

        • Apple

          I completely agree. I couldn’t go on TV without at least trying to look my best…cause that’s who I am…but it’s just not who she is…and I hate when we, as women, judge other women solely on their attractiveness… it is almost as bad as slut-shaming to me.

          • MidwestMiddie

            I disagree because Caroline is an attractive woman but it appears she has gone out of her way to look bad as if she’s using it as a storyline.
            You’re saying that after how many years of being on TV and looking nicely done up……this is the real Caroline? No Way!

          • Apple

            Yup…that is exactly what I am saying. This is the real Caroline. She dresses up sometimes…but she just doesn’t live to sit in “salons” and wear “labels”.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Over all of her years on Bravo, she was nicely done up but she NEVER looked like she sat in salons or wore designer labels. No Way!
            Now, she looks like a man.

          • Apple

            Sometimes, you just don’t care. You feel (are) fat, nothing fits or looks good on you, and you just say whatever and move on. She just does it on WWHL….and I am fine with that.

          • MidwestMiddie

            If she continues to not care about her appearance and continues to look the way she does currently then she’d better get use to people addressing her as “Carl” instead of “Caroline.” LOL

  • Jennymckitty

    Dina knew exactly what she was doing by sending that tweet. If she doesn’t want to get into a bunch of drama while she is sick, then don’t tweet anything. Oh, and she has a skin care line? News to me.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Dina’s Skincare Line —— rofl
      That is why she Tweeted. Her “press tour” must have been a flop. LOL

      • Why is this happening to us?

        The non existent “press tour” for a skin care line that no one ever heard of. Lol

        • MidwestMiddie

          I looked it up. Her product line is titled, “Glow” by Dina. GAG!
          How long will this business deal last? smh

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            LOL, it should be “Gowl” by Dina. It’s the Irish equivalent of a c*nt.

          • Chickpea16

            LOL!

          • MidwestMiddie

            SNAP!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            If none of us have ever heard of it, I’m going to say not too long…lol

    • I think that’s the real reason Dina crawled out from under a rock to throw shade at her sister. She wants us all to know she’s still a bitch and oh ya, she’s selling face cream now too.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Dina is the most passive aggressive b*tch there is. She’s constantly saying she has never spoken about it and goes for the “because I’m a good daughter” vote by throwing in that it’s to protect her parents but yet I have heard way more from her than I ever did from Caroline who was on a reality show for all those years!! Dina was the one who filmed with TG knowing how it would look to the public, she made the “blood isn’t always thicker than water” comment on camera, she wrote a big long blog on her website about it and then came back last season and went on at the reunion about holding a wake for them etc and how the only felt sorry for Lexie. Dina is the spoiled brat baby of the family who is probably used to all the older ones having to jump for her but now her brother Chris has his own family and Caroline is on his side.

    • RonnieRIB

      Dina is a brat and still wants attention.

    • BriannaG

      ITA. Even if you think of S1, Dina was the one who had fights with Danielle. Danielle was totally nuts, but Dina opened her big mouth often enough as well, and then ran for cover to Caroline.
      Caroline made it clear that she wants nothing to do with Danielle, and that’s all.
      Later, Dina and Teresa still fought with Danielle, Teresa was the one who attacked Danielle physically. Ashlee got involved as well, while Caroline told them all to stay away from Danielle and not engage in any conversation with her at the fashion show.
      Caroline didn’t even go there.
      And yet, it’s all Caroline’s fault now? Funny…

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        ITA! Dina was so obnoxiously full of herself in S1. One minute she was bemoaning how all the women in Franklin Lakes treated her because they were afraid she would be a threat once she was single again and yet she then spent the rest of the season shunning Danielle for the very same reason! Danielle was desperate to hang with Dina’s gang. Caroline took the fall for Dina over that book but I suspect baby Dina was used to that and that’s why she couldn’t handle Chris and Caroline finally standing up to her.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I think the very first time I saw Dina in season one, was when she pulled her car into a handicapped parking space. That told me all I evr needed to know about her.

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            IKR? I never liked her. Something so smug about her.

        • BriannaG

          Yep, Danielle was and still is certifiable, but Dina threw enough jabs and below the belt comments at Danielle as well. She was always spoiled and entitled. I just don’t get why Caroline is being blamed for everything, even now, when she was the one who said that she wants nothing to do with Danielle , and she was the one who kept telling Dina,Jac, Ashlee and Teresa to stay away from Danielle while they kept fight with Danielle on social media (Dina, Jac, Ashlee) and in reality (Teresa, Ashlee)…

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            Completely agree. Dina clearly plays the game of befriending her enemy’s enemies and would not go near Danielle Staub under normal circumstances. Last year she said on WWHL or in a tweet that she would like to see her back on the show or something equally moronic and it is purely so she can get her on side against Caroline. I love that Caroline doesn’t play those games.

    • Perturbed

      And come on, who STARTED IT last night on WWHL? Dina did, by deliberately tweeting Siggy & ignoring her sister! However, from what i saw, most tweets were siding with Dina (probably Trehuggers – they’re so intellectually challenged)! Lol

  • Mental Iceberg ????

    Danielle got into the mix? Oh lawdy!

    • Apple

      Yessss…
      The thirst is real, hunny.

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      Was hilarious how after the second tweet, Carolyn threw Danielle a bone.

  • aemish

    Caroline sure knows how to put the MAN in Manzo..

    • sideof Sour Cream

      HA !!!!

    • MidwestMiddie

      So True!!!!

  • ???? Snarky in Hoboken????

    Sometimes all it takes is a shady bitch fulla NyQuil to make things interesting.

    Caroline…what a mess inside & out.

    Bitchy nasty arrogant ornery manly & dressed like she’s been in the same clothes for several days.

    When your grown daughter “owns a salon” put some effort into a hairstyle. Don’t go to Sal the Barber.

    When your grown son wants to have a career writing books for children…maybe tell him to watch his language on the show. Dumbass.

    When your grown son is at the point where he’s not even motivated to pretend to be doing something to make a living anymore & at 30 is “spending lots of time in the gym” & playing fantasy football…I don’t even know what to say. Stop paying his bills & pay your own bills.

    • Perturbed

      I really don’t get those Manzo “kids”. Their collective emotional IQ is about 12. Didn’t Albie at least attend 1 or 2 years of law school? So he must have a Bachelor’s Degree, right? He should certainly be able to get a job as a paralegal, or a court clerk if he’s still interested in the law. He could go into any number of professions, rather than floundering around playing “let’s start a business” for years! Yet another Bravo-corrupted family :-/

      • Apple

        Albie is a millionaire. He did graduate from Fordham University and then went on to get his law degree at Seton Hall, but he has some pretty serious learning disabilities and was unable to keep up with the coursework.

        • Perturbed

          I recall the show where he had to drop out of law school. I didn’t know he transferred and finished his J.D. All the more reason to go further in his legal career, and stop pretending to run restaurants & jumping into offbeat business ventures. I didn’t know he was a millionaire – does Bravo pay those kids that much? You’d think he would’ve bought his own house by now then.

          • Apple

            They are not paid well enough by Bravo to bank a million, but they invest and are all entrepreneurs. Lauren has two beauty salons, Chris and Albie started several restaurants and were involved in Black Water with their uncle, Chris, and Christopher wrote a children’s book.
            Seton Hall would not let Albie back into law school because of his low GPA. He could have sued, because of his disability, but decided that maybe he wasn’t meant to be a lawyer and moved on. He is doing some kind of consulting right now and says he is pretty successful at it.

    • SassyMcAsspants

      LMFAO@ shady bitch fulla NyQuil! Perfect.

  • RonnieRIB

    I’m still shocked at how Caroline looks now……dayum!!!!! Must have been a tough 2 years…

    • Viva La Diva

      So much for that lap band surgery!

      • Weeds1

        She had cancer, I think.

        • WestCoastFeed

          She had a cancer scare. Found a lump and after ultra sound scan, I think found it was nothing to worry about.

          • Weeds1

            That happened to me once and had to have it biopsied…nothing serious was found but scary as hell. Especially with my Mom in the hospital having cancer treatments at the time 🙁

      • WestCoastFeed

        Lauren is the one who had lab band. Not Caroline.

        • Viva La Diva

          I thought Caroline had it sneakily done during the break between season 2 and 3, but tried to pass it off as “portion control.” I want to say Teresa or Danielle outed her.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Nope. No lap band for her. Teresa did mention that sometime in the past, lomg before RHONJ, Caroline had a tummy tuck.

    Bravo did it again……….after I carefully made certain manzoids would NOT be recorded bravo snuck in manzoids when guide showed back to back RHNJ. Boy was I pissed to see manzoids — I do NOT want to contribute to their viewership in any way, shape or form. I also was sure to NOT even record WWHL because I would rather drink Clorox than hear Caro’s lispy voice.

    • Me either. I walked away from the tv for a moment when that crap fest came on. It auto recorded and my son asked if I really meant to record that show. I was all puzzled and told him heck no and that he could delete. He said good because those people are really weird and annoying.

        smart kid. 🙂

    • Why is this happening to us?

      They are so sneaky with that. They always try to attach “spin off” shows to the HW shows. Andy is a shady bitch.

    • Viva La Diva

      Let me tell you something about my fambly…

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    I really don’t like saying it, but the term bitch just seems to fit Caroline so well, and her husband seems like an a-hole. It was obvious to me that while she apparently left RHONJ on her own, she’s green with jealousy that she’s not a part of it anymore. Seeing the beautiful and funny Siggy next to her did her no favors, and neither is the Dita do she rocking.

  • SipsTealikeLisaV

    I can’t stand Caroline although I no longer watch her show what she did to Teresa regardless of being warranted or not showed me who she really is….then she blamed it on the change GMAB

    • Apple

      She says it like it is…and I have no problem with people not liking her. My complaint is when The Trehuggers make up stuff about her and her family.

  • Glooba!

    Not gonna pick a side, because I don’t know much about the drama.

    However, I will say that their family seem to be like a hard-headed bunch, so I’m not surprised that there seem to be constant rifts between them. Like Dina not talking to Caroline and Chris, Caroline (allegedly) not talking to 3 other siblings and so on.

    EDIT: I know Danielle seems desperate, but I gotta admit that I miss the drama she brought to S1-2! I am SO SICK of the Giudice/Gorga family drama we had to endure for like 4+ seasons!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Dina needs to invest in a few more Buddhas and get back onto the eight-fold path.

  • BriannaG

    I kind of agree with Caroline. Just don’t kill me for it)

    First, she didn’t have any relationship with Danielle, so nothing to lose there. Dina was the one who had beef with Danielle and then ran for protection to Caroline. Even Jac confronted Dina about that at the end of S1.
    Danielle is sooo desperate to get back on the show…Or get acknowledged at all)))

    Second, Dina was the one who dropped her family. It’s so clear now why she and Teresa are friends. 2 narcissistic peas in a pod)
    Dina was invited for Holidays all the time, and she ignored her family completely.
    As I remember, last straw for the family was Dina’s new BF. He met Dina at her Ladybug event, where he was with his wife, by the way. And Dina didn’t hesitate to start sleeping with him, even though he was married with 2 young kids (one under 2 y.o. at that time).
    So much for karma and zen, right?
    Of course the family didn’t like it and made it clear that they don’t want to see her BF.
    Dina still brought her BF (a.k.a lover) to Lauren’s wedding. The family didn’t kick him out, but kept him and Dina away from cameras. Dina got mad.

    Dina totally ignored her nephew Nick, didn’t support Jac and Chris when Nick was diagnosed with autism. So that explains why Chris (her brother) no longer speaks with her. Nothing to do with the show.

    Honestly, there is nothing to fix there. They all are adults. Dina is no longer “baby” in the family. And Dina is all about Dina. So let it be.
    Obviously, “zen” Dina is the one who still is angry, hence her twitter meltdown. And Dina is the one who keeps bringing up their elderly parents into this mess on social media, which I find despicable.
    Maybe, my opinion isn’t popular here. But I’ve had enough fights and problems with my relatives, tried to fix a lot of things, which only made my own life worse. And I realized that at some point you just have to let it go and let it be. Life is too short…So I am on Caroline’s side here…

    • WestCoastFeed

      That’s a good summation of the family difficulties with Dina. I just want to add that it was Caroline who took Dina and Lexi into her home after Dina’s divorce from her first husband, Syd Ioannou.

      • BriannaG

        Absolutely. Dina had nothing, absolutely nothing after her 1st divorce. And she and Lexi lived for free at Caroline’s house for a long time. Dina is ungrateful.

        • WestCoastFeed

          This is an old matter, but probably has some bearing on the family problems. For some reason Dina let people think that her first husband was George Hadjapostoli, the owner of a nail salon. Actually it was George’s brother-in-law, Sotiris Ioannou.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Hi WCF. : )
            Has Dina’s current BF’s divorce been finalized?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Not that I have heard.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Thanks!

        • Perturbed

          Also, Dina’s been living “high on the hog” off of this sugar daddy’s $$ for quite awhile now. Her Twitter/Instagram shows her living in BH and/or Malibu for at least a year, plus she still has an apt in NYC I think. She was able to rehire her Irish assistant as well, which all adds up. I don’t believe for a second that she earns enough from her skincare line or any other business to afford all this on her own! Maybe Caroline & family just don’t want to associate with a “paid mistress”?!

          • BriannaG

            ITA. Dina has no income. Her own show flopped. Nobody heard of her “skincare line”. She is no longer on NJ housewives.
            She married Al’s brother for money even though he cheated on her right before the wedding, and she knew about it. She is a homewrecker as well, and her new BF is a cheating husband, and is still married. And yet, Dina keeps talking about “zen” and “karma” and holds her family responsible for everything…
            That explains a lot, in my opinion….

    • Apple

      Yay!…reinforcements!
      Welcome my friends.

    • Shits & Giggles™

      Great summation

    • clare

      I couldn’t agree more! Fantastic analysis. Right on.

  • Heisenberg

    I’m too worn out from this ridiculous ‘family feud’ to get into it very deep, but I do have to say that Danielle delivers one of the more profound statements when she wrote on Twitter:

    @wwhl @Bravotv @Andy @CarolineManzo you didn’t exactly answer my question Caroline as usual you say a lot of words yet you say #nothing

    Caroline doesn’t stop talking and yet, really doesn’t say much. I’d rather not hear her name, nor Dina’s name, ever again.

  • Sandra Oh

    Can’t stand any of them so it’s for the best they all stay in their own lane and be done with each other.

  • Lindaem

    OMG. These women ALL sound like 7th grade mean girls trying to one up each other. It gives me a headache. Caroline who purports to be the matriarch of ALL on BRAVO is a BAD MOTHER. Her boys have no life, no jobs, no girlfriends, no desire to make it in life for themselves. Her daughter married a guy who has no job and is eating himself to death. She seems to thrive on family chaos so that they depend on her even more. Won’t be watching anymore this year.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Her boys have jobs. Vito works in the family Italian deli and is seriously considering opening one of his own. He has asked Albie to help him find funding. Lauren has just opened her second salon.

      • Lindaem

        Consider me educated.

      • Apple

        Chris wrote a Children’s book, and is working on another…and all three are entrepreneurs and millionaires.

  • disqus_nx4MfF4kvy

    I once heard people say being a Bravo housewife was one of the greatest honors a person can achieve. This is all so much bull shit, all these words & tweets mean nothing, who gives a flying f@ck. At one time I kinda liked liked Andy, I realized he had a job to do, now I realize he’s a little pussy with no morals. Housewives concept is wealthy upwardly mobile people living their lives and we get a pair of career criminals doing time, capitalizing on their current fame and living a life they can’t afford. These 2 felons are trying to convince the world how wonderful they are and how it was all a big misunderstanding and Bravo gives them a platform, Andy you should be ashamed of yourself.
