Fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have gotten to know Jacqueline Laurita and her extended family over the years. And while they are all now alums of the Real Housewives franchise, viewers are still interested in how things are for the Laurita-Manzo family. Lucky for us, Jacqueline offered an update on her family during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday (May 6).

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

"Dina [Manzo] and I have texted a couple times [like] when there's like a death of [a family member], the death of my family-in-law [in 2020]. We were on texts then. [My husband] Chris [Laurita] has talked to her, seen her. We're on good terms, I would say," Jacqueline shared on WWHL about her relationship with her sister-in-law.

As RHONJ fans will recall, Dina is Chris' sister. While things seem good between those Laurita siblings, Dina remains estranged from their sister, Caroline Manzo, as Caroline recently addressed during an appearance on For Real: The Story of Reality TV.

(You can find out what Caroline is up to today checking out her interview with Bravo Insider's Life After Bravo, here.)

On WWHL this week, Jacqueline, who now lives in the Las Vegas area, also shared an update on where she stands with fellow RHONJ alums Rosie Pierri and her sister Kathy Wakile. "I do [keep in touch]. Matter of fact, the Wakiles are coming out here next month and I'm gonna meet up with them," Jacqueline said.

As for life in Nevada, she added, "Andy, I love it. The weather's beautiful. I have my parents out here. I have my brother and his family out here, my cousins, old friends, Chris' brother, I mean, it's close to everything; it's been great. My daughter [Ashlee Holmes Malleo] was out here for a while and then she's back with her husband in New Jersey. So at one point everybody was here."
