'Real Housewives of New Jersey': Dina Manzo in, Caroline Manzo out?

dina-manzo-caroline-manzo-real-housewives-of-new-jersey-bravo.jpgFollowing news that Caroline Manzo has a pilot in the works with Bravo, it appears that her estranged sister Dina Manzo may be returning to "The Real Housewives of New Jersey."

Caroline will reportedly not return for Season 6 of the show, as she has a spinoff show in the works, called "Manzo'd With Children," that will feature her immediate family and sister Fran.

According to In Touch, Caroline's departure has paved the way for sister Dina to return to the series. Dina was a member of the original cast, but left the show during Season 2 after conflict with fellow former original cast member Danielle Staub got out of hand.

As fans of "RHONJ" know, Dina and Caroline haven't been on speaking terms for the past few years, which is why Dina is now eyeing a return to the show.

"The timing is perfect -- Caroline won't be returning next season," a source tells the magazine. "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 tells the publication, "Dina Manzo's return to the show is all but a done deal."

Dina's return will certainly add drama to the current "RHONJ" dynamic, as she's an "ally" to Teresa Giudice, who's become the antagonistic outsider to much of the cast.

The only hitch in Dina's return? She's currently living in New York. Whether she plans to move back for her return (or if she'll even return at all) remains to be seen.

Does the possibility of Dina's return to "RHONJ" sound good to you?
