Is the Manzo-Laurita Feud Over?
Jacqueline Laurita reveals a surprising Thanksgiving sit-down with Dina Manzo.
The longtime feud between Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Dina Manzo and her sister Caroline Manzo and sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita seems to run deep. What may have started as a falling out in Season 1 seems to have broiled over to include old history and grudges in the way that only family can. Even at the last RHONJ reunion, one of the biggest points of contention between Dina and fellow castmate Melissa Gorga was Dina's beef with Jacqueline.
Despite all of that years-long tension, including Dina admitting that she has never even met Jacqueline's son Nicholas, it appears the Manzo-Laurita crew has been infected with the spirit of the holiday season. "We all mutually decided to stop the nonsense and move forward in a positive way," Jacqueline tells Radar Online about the decision to bury the hatchet. "We even had Thanksgiving together for the first time and it was peaceful and normal and great to have everyone together.”
Jacqueline also confirms that Dina and Nicholas finally met "and he loved her. He even sat on her lap and played with her hair.”
In fact, it appears that Thanksgiving sit-down included Caroline Manzo, who recently included Dina's daughter Lexie in a group shot with her children. And when Dina recently tweeted that "Things have been good for a bit just wanted to keep it private for a minute~Not everything needs to be done w cameras," Caroline responded with "TRUE - we kept it private :)."
Could it be that the truce is coming in time for Lauren Manzo's upcoming 2015 wedding? Caroline Manzo's daughter had previously stated that of course her Aunt Dina would be invited and welcome at her nuptials.
