Dina tweeted, “Well I guess the (hairless) cats out of the bag. Yes I’m back, Unlike the past this time it felt “right”~ See you on Bravo my friends xo.” Woo hoo! That cat joke would be a reference to the creepy pet she showed during the first seasons of the show.

Dina is, of course, the sister of cast member Caroline Manzo, from whom she’s been estranged for some time. “She doesn’t really want to do the show with family because it brings unnecessary drama and causes problems,” Jacqueline said of Dina. That won’t be a problem anymore, since Caroline has confirmed that she is leaving for her own spin-off, Manzo’d with Children.
