Real Housewives' Dina Manzo "Not Taking Sides" in Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice's Feud

USMagazine, Monday, October 17, 2011, 4:21pm (PDT)

There's a lot of drama amongst the Real Housewives of New Jersey, but Dina Manzo wants to stay out of it! 

"Please refrain from making assumptions. I didn't take any sides," Dina posted on her official Facebook page Monday. (On Sunday's RHONJ reunion, Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo were at each other's throats.) "I'm not involved in their drama, I removed myself from all of that a long time ago but somehow still get dragged in."

"Teresa has nothing to do with my relationship with my sister," Dina clarified to Us Weekly. "I had no idea of their discord until very recently."

"I am at a very good place in my life with my foundation, Project Ladybug, helping so many children with cancer and my new show Dina's Party on HGTV," she added.

As far as her relationship with Caroline? "I'm sure in time [it] will mend itself," she told Us. "To quote a favorite saying of mine, 'This too shall pass.'"

Dina wishes "all of the girls peace and happiness in their lives, too."

During the RHONJ reunion, Caroline, Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile attacked everything from Teresa's marriage to "Juicy Joe" Giudice to her family's bankruptcy proceedings. But none of the women were as fired up as Caroline, whom Teresa declared was "as Italian as the Olive Garden" in her Fabulicious! cookbook.

Teresa also called Caroline "a freaking liar" and "[the] exorcist," while Caroline told her former friend she made her feel like she was "in a whirlwind of stupid."

As of Monday evening, 81 percent of voters in an Us Weekly poll said they were on Caroline's side, while 19 percent of voters thought Teresa was in the right.

Part two of the highly-anticipated reunion airs Sunday.
