Dina Manzo is reportedly happy to return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey—now that her family members are no longer a part of the show.

After leaving the show following its second season, Manzo has returned to Bravo for the series' sixth season and is thrilled to be doing so without having to feud with certain family members, including Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita.

“The show had taken its toll on their relationship. Dina didn’t have the energy to fight on camera about their family drama,” a source revealed to Radar Online. “Dina will still scrape with the other ladies, but she’s thrilled not to have to fight with Caroline or Jacqueline.”

Years ago, Manzo and her sister, Caroline, engaged in a bitter feud, which has continued ever since. Even though several other family members have attempted to get the sisters to reconcile, they have been unsuccessful and aside from a brief reconciliation in Dec. 2013, they have been completely estranged.

As for Laurita, she and Manzo have never been close and when it came to taking sides, she has always been closer to Caroline. Either way, Manzo won't be seeing her on The Real Housewives of New Jersey either, as she and Caroline will soon be moving on to Manzo'd With Children, Caroline's spinoff about her family business on which Laurita will guest star.

“They aren’t exactly friendly. They are distancing themselves and find it better that way,” the source added of the Manzo sisters.
