A New York City housewife could have been on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." On Sunday, August 10, Dina Manzo revealed that Sonja Morgan actually made an appearance during her date with Matthew Shultz in New York City.

The Sunday episode showed Dina on a date with Matt, whom she had met during the previous episode's first responders' party via new housewife Nicole Napolitanos. The two met up at New York City's Serendipity 3 restaurant. Viewers saw Matt arrive about 30 minutes late because of a flat tire but the two seemingly getting along.

What viewers didn't see was the surprise guest that showed up towards the end of the date. After the episode aired, Dina tweeted that she wished the viewers saw her whole date, which actually included Sonja showing up and crashing the date! Dina, instead of being peeved, loved Sonja being there. Dina said that Sonja "was fabulous." Sonja jokingly replied to Dina that, as a good girlfriend, she needs to check her dates out.

In an interview with Radar Online conducted about a week prior to the date's airing, Matt actually hinted about Sonja's appearance. Unlike Dina however, he didn't like Sonja's presence as much. He said that the mystery guest that showed up at the end spoiled the date a bit.

Matt also revealed that he'll only be seen in one more episode. He said that he and Dina are not in a relationship but simply keep in touch with one another. He explained that neither he nor Dina are focused on being in a serious relationship right now and that Dina is still in a bit of a situation with her ex.

It's not clear whether Dina Manzo actually arranged for Sonja Morgan to be at the date or if it really was just a coincidence. It's also not clear whether producers decided to not film Sonja's appearance or edited it out of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." What could have been more fun for viewers than to see Sonja grilling Matt and giving Dina some love advice?!?!
