Could "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" viewers actually witness a reconciliation between Jacqueline Laurita and her sister-in-law Dina Manzo some time in the future? Maybe. On Wednesday, August 13, Jacqueline, who is rumored to be returning to the show later on this season, tweeted about how much she admires Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for being able to move on from their drama.

Jacqueline wrote that she has a lot of respect for Teresa and Melissa, and their respective husbands, for the way they let go of their grievances. She added that if they didn't, they wouldn't be as close or as happy as they are right now.

Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa famously feuded on the show for three seasons, pretty much ever since Melissa joined the show in season three. Yet towards the end of the fifth season, they started making amends and are now friendly and cordial to one another. Jacqueline's tweet immediately prompted some fans to tell her that perhaps she and Dina, like Teresa and Melissa, could move on from their drama and be friends again.

However, while both Teresa and Melissa were willing to air their family drama for all to see, the same can't be said for Jacqueline and Dina. Dina, who has just returned to the show after several seasons away, said before the current season's premiere that she would never do a reality TV show with family ever again. Unfortunately for Dina, it was reported just a few days ago that Jacqueline will actually appear in several episodes with recurring housewife Kathy Wakile later on this season.

Dina, who was left in the dark about the decision, is supposedly "furious" about Jacqueline's return and has told people that she would have never agreed to return to the show if she knew that producers would bring back on Jacqueline. Since Dina Manzo was willing to leave the show entirely before to avoid family drama playing out on TV, it's unlikely that she would actually film scenes with Jacqueline in a future season. Any reconciliation will likely happen off camera.

As for whether it's really true that viewers will once again see Jacqueline Laurita on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," Jacqueline has not confirmed or denied the rumor. She has only teased that viewers will just have to watch to see what happens.
