Well I know that hell hasn't frozen over because it's pushing eighty degrees here on the coast of South Cackalacki, but I don't have any other rational explanation for this reality news. Much like the Grinch, it appears that some ladies in the Garden State have hearts that are growing and growing. 'Tis the season, right?
Past, present, and future Real Housewives of New Jersey stars–and sisters–and technically still sisters-in-law (ya follow me?)–Caroline and Dina Manzo have reconciled after a long and anti-climactic feud. I know, I know. I can't believe it either!
There were rumors that this was going to be the first big event to be filmed for the new season, but we have confirmation that the event was not filmed for season 6 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Tom Murro shared with us that his insider at the party said "there wasn't any drama or anything really noteworthy other than the fact that they all held hands and meditated at one point in the evening. Dina held Teresa's hand and they were acting like BFFs. Dina did smell like an English garden and had a trail of fairy dust behind her as she did the downward dog and everyone sang hallelujah just before they meditated… At least that's how I imagined it."
The site explains that Dina realized the interview would touch on some of the ickiness that is RHONJ, she agreed because it would inevitably help publicize her Goddess Night Out event for Project Ladybug which she is hosting November 11th. Dina shares, "It's our sixth annual Ladies Night Out. I've grown a lot spiritually in the past four or five years, and what I have learned has helped me. I want to share that with as many people. … So, instead of making it just Ladies Night Out, and a great fun party, I'm making it Goddess Night Out. And it's all about inspiring women to embrace the goddess within and being beautiful inside and out."
Dina took to Twitter to share the news this morning. "Well I guess the (hairless) cats out of the bag. Yes I'm back, Unlike the past this time it felt "right" ~ See you on Bravo my friends xo"
I admit my surprise over the official admission. Bravo normally loves to keep those rumors flying right up until the season premiere of the Housewives shows, never confirming or denying the new and/or returning cast members.

Many have questioned why Dina would go back to a show she has publicly blasted as fake and negative, but apparently Dina is in need of money if she wants to escape her philandering hubby Tommy Manzo. Didn't she marry him to escape poverty in the first place?
Dina recently announced the couple is separated, but reportedly they are both still living in the NJ mansion seen on RHONJ and Tommy continues to financially support Dina (and all her vacations!).
Now a source reveals that Dina desperately needs income if she wants to be able to afford her independence. What happened to her decorating business!? “Dina signed because she had little choice,” an insider reveals to Radar Online.
Dina left the show because she felt it became too negative. Now with the network looking to revamp and get away from all the fighting and animosity, Dina is claiming she's been offered a spot on the show! “I have been offered, I can say that. I'm considering it,” Dina revealed to In Touch Weekly.
