Sisters Caroline and Dina Manzo Aren't Speaking Again


BravoTV.com:
It looks like there's still tension between the Manzo sisters. After Caroline Manzo shared with The Daily Dish that she and her sister Dina Manzo "don't have a relationship anymore," the Manzo'd with Children matriarch reiterated during Sunday night's Watch What Happens Live that their relationship is "over." "What are you gonna do? You can't get blood out of a rock," she told Andy Cohen after he asked how things were between the siblings today (clip above). 

Caroline later said during the WWHL After Show that the last time she and Dina had reconciled, they had been on good terms for about 10 months, but added that they'd "never had words" during that time (clip below).

This all started after the WWHL host mentioned that Dina had sent some love to Caroline's fellow guest Siggy Flicker via Twitter writing, ".@siggyflicker gives great advice! You go girl" during the episode. Caroline's comments on WWHL, however, inspired Dina to send some not-so-positive tweets her sister's way following the episode. "I'm sick w the flu for 7 days & not in the mood for this sh**," Dina tweeted, which seemed to be in response to Caroline's comments. "I said one day I will snap and I might be about to."

Dina went on to imply that Caroline is the one responsible for putting a strain on their relationship. "I was told NEVER to reach out/speak to her or her family again," she tweeted. "Disinvited to holidays? But I'm the rock she's trying to get blood out of?"

The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum then said that there was "no reason" for Caroline to bring up this topic publicly. "I was asked that same question on my press tour for my skincare & protected 'family' by saying all is good," she said.

Dina said her tweet to Siggy was only meant as a compliment for "giving great relationship advice" to The Real Housewives of New York City cast on WWHL. "Andy or a caller would have asked the question anyway" about Dina and Caroline's relationship status, according to Dina.

Ultimately, Dina said that she believes this drama is hurting their family. "I've kept my mouth shut for yrs to protect my parents & husband at the time," she tweeted. "I'm done. My parents can't be hurt anymore than they are now."

Caroline has not yet publicly addressed Dina's comments, but she did respond to RHONJ alum Danielle Staub's tweet in which she wrote, "Why the double standard @carolinemanzo you didn't allow anyone to be friends with me but now?" after Caroline mentioned her on WWHL. But Caroline doesn't really seem to have a beef with her former castmate. "Because Danielle Staub, thanks for watching, No.1, and No.2, you and I did not have any kind of relationship, so I don't want to be around the people that are around you, so maybe it's my end," she said.
