Dina Manzo Speaks Out about 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' Feud
Dina Manzo Speaks Out about 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' Feud
On last night's second part of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion show, tensions grew even higher than Teresa Giudice's hair when ex-housewife and Caroline Manzo's sister, Dina Manzo, was brought into the discussion.

Despite trying to keep the specifics of the issue quiet in the tabloids and the Internet rumor mill, Caroline didn't have any trouble laying all of the blame on Teresa.

"[Dina] was led to believe a lot of things that are not true," Caroline said, while looking at Teresa. "She has a good friend that likes to talk and she says things that aren't true against me and Jacqueline."

Of course Teresa denied any involvement in the debacle, saying how it was "crazy to see the tables turned" after spending an entire season feuding with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and that the Manzo sisters were feuding entirely because of Caroline's actions.

"Right now I'm not talking to Dina. Dina's not talking to me," Caroline responded. "It became ugly. We argued a lot. She claims that I never supported her. And Teresa's a big part of it."

But Dina Manzo wasn't without a voice, and although she wasn't sitting on a couch in Jersey with the rest of the gals, she took to her blog today to clear some things up.

"It's true I decided to distance myself from ALL the housewives once I left season 2," she wrote. "I will NOT get into [what] did happen behind the scenes with certain family members and there is no right or wrong really...it depends on who you ask. Feelings did get hurt."

She also went into how she felt guilty about ganging up on other former housewife Danielle Staub when she was on the show, and how she could see a similar thing happening to Teresa. Dina writes how she's been spending more time with Teresa and her daughters, and that Caroline and Jacqueline over-reacted to the "jokes" Teresa put in her cook book Fabulicious!

"[Teresa] mentioned the drama with her and Caroline and I told her if this is all about a joke in a book (which she assured me it was) that's not enough for me to hate the mother of my God daughter and a friend of 15 years," she wrote. "Was it necessary to write that stuff in her book? Probably not but I don't think it was written with malice either."

It seems that being called "as Italian as the Olive Garden" wasn't as an egregious of an insult to Dina as it was to her sister.
