The Real Housewives of New Jersey Scoop: Dina Manzo Ordered Ousting of Jacqueline Laurita

by at . Comments

Dina Manzo may be returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

But in order for Manzo to come back to the series she quit in 2010, the reality star made a demand of producers: Give the boot to Jacqueline Laurita.

Jacqueline tells the latest issue of In Touch Weekly that she's aware of Dina's role in her ousting, dissing her sister-in-law to the tabloid and saying:

“I understand why Dina wouldn’t want me on the show: She doesn’t want to address family issues on-camera!”

What’s behind this family feud? From where do Manzo's issues stem?

“Dina started it because she wanted Caroline and Jacqueline to quit the show when she left," claims a magazine source. "They didn’t, so this is her way of getting back at them.”

A major casting shakeup is set to take place on Season 6 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Caroline is out. Jacqueline is out. And insiders say Amber Marchese and twin sisters Nicole and Teresa Napolitano will come on board when the series returns in 2014.
