'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Needs Dina Manzo to Return Next Season, No Question
Now that Season 5 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey has wrapped (save for the glorious reunion episodes), it's time to start thinking about Season 6. We've already talked about how RHONJ needs a cast shake up, if only because Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice are likely heading to jail. Without those two clowns on the show, how will Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, and Kathy Wakile get their kicks? Enter a familiar, slightly evil face. If I had it my way, Dina Manzo would return to RHONJ . And it sounds like I'm not the only one who wants her to make a comeback. She's allegedly ready to star again on the show again... under one condition.
According to RadarOnline, Dina will only come back if Jacqueline gets fired. Apparently, Dina doesn't want to fight with Jacqueline and argue over their old feuds. In case you've forgotten how they're all connected, Dina's brother Chris is Jacqueline's husband, and as of Season 4's reunion, neither Caroline nor Chris were talking to Dina... which is exactly why she needs to be back in the fray.
The more real, family drama on the show, the better, and with the Giudices behind bars, the show is left with space to fill. If they could replace the Giudice-Gorga family feud with a Manzo on Manzo on Laurita family feud, that would be perfect.
So far, Bravo hasn't announced any casting changes yet, but should they need a refresher on why Dina was so awesome, all they need to do is just sit back, relax, and let my interview with Dina do the explaining:
Dina, so nice of you to join me today.
Okay, then. Well, anyway, I'm thrilled you might make a triumphant return to Jersey. Do you want to be back on TV?
I'll take that as a "yes." Thing is, I've been hearing you'll only return if Jacqueline and her husband, your brother, are kicked off the show. What is your beef with her?
Hmm. Well, I get you're trying to be nice, but that's not entirely fair. You guys have been feuding for a while. Sounds to me like you're just trying to take the high road, when really, there isn't one. It's crazy talk!
Whoa! Whoa. Okay. Calm down, Dina. I didn't mean, I, it's just. I'm sorry. So, back to the point.
I really want you back on the show. I think you're super funny and add a lot of heartfelt drama to the show. Have to talked to the Bravo casting agent girl about rejoining the cast?
Yeah, totally, but like, it's because she wants you to return to the network as much as I do.
There you go again, calling people crazy. Listen, she, and we, just want you back on the show. Is that too much to ask?
Who? The casting agent? Jesus, Dina. You're impossible. But that's what we love about you. Now, one last chance: Any thoughts on Jacqueline?
Knew it! Okay. Thanks for talking with me.
That's the spirit! Down with Jacqueline. And your sister. And your brother. Good talk, Dina. Hope to see you back on Bravo real soon.
