Jacqueline Laurita announced in October that she was returning to the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and the antennae of the show's fans no doubt immediately went up. The initial buzz that spread was likely in the form of a question. Would a recent feud between Laurita and Dina Manzo play itself out on air?

While that remains to be seen, fans won't have to wait for season seven of the Real Housewives of New Jersey in order to see it. In fact, all they have to do is turn to Twitter--where it has played out via social media in recent days.

NJ.com reports that Dina Manzo appeared on Watch What Happens Live! earlier this week to talk about her relationship with Teresa Giudice–who, along with husband Joe, was recently sentenced to prison for tax fraud. While there she said she’s still fighting with her family.

“I kept my mouth shut for four years, Jacqueline opened the door by coming back on the show,” Dina said. "Right now I don’t want to make a relationship with Jacqueline, I don’t. I will say Chris reached out when he heard I was separated and I could not have been happier but that lasted all of fifteen minutes….and we had a plan to meet and I don’t want to get into it obviously not everyone was on the same page.”

Shortly thereafter, Dina Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita battled it out on Twitter--with Laurita setting the bait.

If this doesn't make you appreciate your own family--nothing will.

In other Jacqueline Laurita news, she did offer some comforting words of wisdom to other parents who have a child with autism.

“You have to keep facing things that are difficult to overcome them. So, if they have a certain fear or something they have a weakness in, you just have to keep pushing that area until they get over that," she said.

She also updated fans on her own son's progress.

“[Nicholas] is able to speak much more, request things that he needs…he’s doing really well," she said.

How do you think the feud between Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo will end? Will family ills be remedied? Or will tempers flare when the Real Housewives of New Jersey airs its seventh season?
