Dina Manzo returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey as reports of her sister Caroline Manzo departing surface. Sources tell In Touch magazine Dina Manzo is “in serious talks” to make a return to the Bravo show. “The timing is perfect — Caroline won’t be returning next season. She has her spin-off and that’s what she’s moving on to. She might appear in a couple episodes here and there.” Another insider added, “Dina Manzo’s return to the show is all but a done deal.”
No on to Caroline who is allegedly departing RHONJ after this season may leaving…not because of a spinoff…but over cheating allegations of husband, Al Manzo. “Caroline wants out because she knows if she stays on the show, it’s only a matter of time before rumors of [husband] Al’s cheating becomes a storyline this season,” a source told E! News. “The new girl, Penny, made allegations during filming this past season that Al had a history of cheating, but they were cut.Bravo is very protective of Caroline and wants to keep her happy. So, they’re letting her leave RHONJ and give her a spinoff attempt. The spinoff will be light-hearted and family-oriented, which is the image Caroline wants to protect. But if she stayed on RHONJ, there’s no way she’d be able to keep the rumors about Al cheating quiet and she knows it.”
That’s kind of a bombshell for Caroline….?
