Caroline Manzo has pretty much put the kibosh on any talk of reconciliation with estranged sister Dina, continuing the Bravo reality stars' ongoing feud.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know the two have been at odds for some time. That's about as nicely as we can put it.

You also know that Dina appeared to extend the olive branch on Sunday's reunion episode, implying that she was open to making nice with her sister.

Well, Manzo'd With Children star Caroline went on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live later and basically shut down any hope of that ever happening:

"Over the past 4-5 years, Dina has never attended any family function. We've got nieces and nephews that are 3, 4, 5 years old, 9 months old, that she doesn't know."

"She didn't go to my brother Jamie's wedding," Caroline continued.

"Babies were born, baptisms, graduations, birthdays..."

When Caroline Manzo quit The Real Housewives of New Jersey, she was probably hoping to put the drama of the show behind her.

But even though she's moved on with a new reality series, Caroline can't seem to escape the bombshell revelation that reportedly caused her to quit the show.

Caroline Manzo Up Close

Sources tell Radar Online that while filming season five last year, Caroline was confronted by Teresa Giudice's friend Penny Drossos.

During an argument with Manzo, Drossos was heard to remark, "F--k you, the Jill card is on the table."

"Jill is Al Manzo's longtime mistress," one insider revealed. "Caroline ripped off her microphone and bolted for the door. That's the real reason she left the show."

Teresa and Joe Giudice's former Real Housewives co-star Caroline Manzo is speaking out about their prison sentences, deeming them shocking and tragic.

  • Caroline Manzo on The Real Housewives
  • Teresa Giudice: Telling It Like It Is

Following Sunday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 1, Caroline went on Watch What Happens Live.

“I’m blown away. I’m blown away by the whole thing,” Manzo told Andy Cohen of Teresa Giudice's 15-month sentence and Joe's 41-month punishment.

“It’s so much bigger than the [Real] Housewives, it’s so much bigger than Bravo, it’s just life-changing for these people and their children," she added.

“The only think I can think of is their kids - God bless those kids - you know, it is what it is, and it happened and I can’t wrap my head around it, it’s a lot.”

They may be shocked and devastated by their impending trips to the big house, but the Giudices have no choice but to do time after their fraud convictions.

On last night's Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 1, a former Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member returned with her new Bravo spinoff series.

Is it worth watching, though, compared with the show she started on?

Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 1 re-introduces us to Caroline Manzo, who not-so-famously split from the franchise for her own half-hour series.

Jacqueline Laurita, who is Caroline's sister-in-law, will join her along with her kids ... who are back and driving her up the wall. No surprise there!

Albie and Chris ditched their bachelor pad to move back into her place to save money, while Lauren's gearing up for her wedding to fiance Vito Scalia.

So much upper middle class drama in Franklin Lakes!

In On Manzo'd With Children Season 1 Episode 2, she pushes them to broaden their world view a bit, which in her mind means a trip to trapeze camp.

For one reality star, the rumors are now a, well, reality.

Following last night's Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Caroline Manzo took to Twiter and confirmed that she's leaving the franchise.

“It’s been wonderful guys," Manzo wrote. "I’ve decided to leave #RHONJ this season was my last. Love and kisses to you all. xoxoxo.”

Rumors of Caroline's departure first cropped up in September, but it's not as if she's saying goodbye to Bravo viewers: the network has signed Manzo to a spinoff hilariously titled Manzo'd with Children.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey "Reunion Part 2" got underway with inventive insults and ended with opening old wounds. We recap it all in our THG +/- review.

What do the Housewives regret about this season?

Talk to the Hand
  • Rosie wishes she hadn't told Teresa to "take it up the *ss."
  • Teresa Giudice says she shouldn't have called Jacqueline Laurita evil.
  • Even Juicy Joe says he shouldn't have used names like Josephine, butchy boy, and horsey face.

Plus 20 because how often does anyone admit when they're wrong on this show?

Don't worry. It doesn't last long.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey  "Reunion Part 1" hit our TV screens and I had to wonder how many viewers felt a lot like Juicy Joe this season…

Juicy Joe's Looking Bored

We recap all the backstabbing and infidelity in our THG +/- review.

Remember last season's reunion show when these ladies all but swore they'd never live in the same town, never mind share this sofa again. Well, some might have changed zip codes but they all showed up to talk to Andy Cohen this time around. Plus 15.

It's "Salon, Farewell" as The Real Housewives of New Jersey wrap up their season as everyone gathers at the salon. We recap the fighting and scary faces in our THG + or - review.

And what kind of finale would it be without Kim D's scowling face?

What's So Scary?

Apparently the woman who resembles the crypt keeper scares Joe and Teresa Giudice too? Plus 20.

But it's Penny and Teresa who go at it first. Since Penny is claiming Teresa texts her, Teresa wants to see the texts. Plus 12 because for once Teresa makes a perfectly reasonable request. 

Unfortunately Penny tells her, "I don't save my texteses." Or was that I don't save Texas? Minus 18. My Jersey Housewives translator must be on the fritz.

Teresa Giudice is desperate to get in.

And Caroline Manzo just got out.

With Giudice hoping to sign a new deal with Bravo and play a major role on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6, multiple outlets confirm that Manzo will NOT be returning to the franchise that made her famous.

This mother of three was an original cast member then RHONJ debuted in 2009, but her departure from the flagship does not mean viewers have seen the last of Caroline Manzo. Far from it.
