Jacqueline Laurita recently announced that she would be re-joining her Real Housewives Of New Jersey co-stars for season 7, and fans wondered when the news broke whether her reappearance would mean an on-camera battle with Dina Manzo, with whom she’s had a falling out. But they may not have to wait for new episodes, as the pair have already been involved in an online feud.
After Manzo appeared on Watch What Happens Live! earlier this week to talk about her relationship with Teresa Giudice–who was recently sentenced to prison along with her husband Joe for tax fraud–and said she’s still on the outs with her family after her brother Chris reached out to her following her separation but didn’t put forth much of an effort.
“I kept my mouth shut for four years, Jacqueline opened the door by coming back on the show. 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,” she said.
The ladies took to Twitter to vent their frustrations with one another, and Laurita retweeted a comment by a fan aimed at Manzo.

Laurita insists that her husband has made several attempts to reach out to his sister, but Manzo won’t meet with him.
