Jacqueline Laurita is no longer on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" but that isn't stopping her from arguing with one of the show's cast members. Shockingly, Jacqueline has gone after Dina Manzo, her own sister-in-law who returned to the show after being away for several seasons.

Dina starred in the first two seasons of the show along with Jacqueline and her sister Caroline Manzo. For reasons that are not yet clear, Dina then became estranged from both Jacqueline and Caroline. The departures of Jacqueline and Caroline from the show after season five paved the way for Dina to come back. Dina recently admitted to Us Weekly that she would never do a reality TV show with family ever again.

On Monday, July 14, All About The Real Housewives reported that Ashlee Holmes, Jacqueline's daughter, criticized Dina by posting an Instagram message that Dina doesn't know the true meaning of the word "Zen," which Dina had used to describe herself in the premiere episode.

Ashlee's post caused Dina to tweet that criticism from family is just a hint of why she stayed away from the show. Ashlee laughed at Dina's response and said that wasn't the real reason for her departure. Then Jacqueline joined in, replying that she thought Dina stayed away because her family knows too much information about her that she wants kept secret. Jacqueline then tweeted that Dina better stop implying any more hints if she doesn't want the truth about her to come out.

Jacqueline's tweets didn't sit well with some people. Several fans told her that she should not allow her daughter to talk about her aunt like that and that she was immature to join in on the drama.

Fans of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" have long wondered what caused Dina Manzo to stop speaking to Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. Now, thanks to Jacqueline, they'll likely wonder what harmful secrets Dina is supposedly keeping from the public.
