Family is everything in the Garden State, but fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey know that loved ones can also be the source of a lot of drama.
No one knows that better than sisters Caroline Manzo and Dina Manzo, who have famously been estranged over the past few years. But considering the fact that Caroline and Dina have both gone through some major life events since we last saw them on RHONJ, have they decided to leave their problems in the past and move forward with their relationship?
Well, it appears that a new year hasn't brought any new changes in Caroline and Dina's relationship. A fan recently asked Dina on Instagram, "Happy new year! How are things with the siblings? All but one still?" Dina replied, "Yep."

Though Dina didn't name which sibling she was referring to (she is the youngest of 11 children, after all) on Instagram, we have a feeling she meant that she's still not on good terms with Caroline since their fractured relationship is well known and she has previously said that she is close to her other nine siblings, including Chris Laurita, the husband of fellow RHONJ alum Jacqueline Laurita.
Dina revealed during an interview on Radio Andy's Jeff Lewis Live that she and Caroline haven't spoken in two years. She also noted during the interview that she thought everyone "changed" during their time on RHONJ. (Caroline appeared in Seasons 1 through 5; Dina appeared in Seasons 1, 2, and 6.) “People become [caricatures] of themselves," she told Jeff Lewis. "A little part of what people say that they liked, they tend to put it on.”
Since RHONJ, Dina has begun a new life in California, although she still has a place in New Jersey and visits often. She also keeps in touch with Teresa Giudice.
Dina confirmed her engagement to longtime boyfriend David Cantin in August 2018. She also recently shared the sad news that she had "lost a few pregnancies."
