The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast is shaping up for season six and with matriarch Caroline Manzo leaving, many wondered who would sign on. On Oct. 28, Radar Online reported that Caroline's sister, Dina, who used to be on the show, will be returning for some fun -- and tons of drama -- next season. While it may seem that Dina obviously returned to the Bravo franchise because Caroline is gone (and her BFF Teresa Giudice needs someone in her corner), Dina reportedly has other reasons for rejoining the show.
"Dina signed because she had little choice," a source told Radar Online. Wait. What does that mean?
The return "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star wants to formally split from her husband, Tommy Manzo whom she separated from back in February. The problem is that she needs to earn her own money -- so she wants Bravo to write her a fat paycheck.
"Here’s the thing, she wants to get a divorce from Tommy. They have a pre-nup that’s the size of a frigging phone book. If she divorces, she isn’t getting anything. She walks away with no house, nothing — so it’s either sign back with Bravo or you stay with the devil," the source continued.
The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" season six will definitely be different... especially if Teresa Giudice ends up behind bars. Are you excited that Dina Manzo is coming back?
