Look who’s pulling a Dina Manzo and coming back for more “Real Housewives.”

“Real Housewives of New Jersey’s” Jacqueline Laurita will be returning for the show’s sixth season, an individual close to production told TheWrap.

Laurita’s return was first reported by TMZ, but the insider said that she isn’t out to get her sister-in-law as the report stated. Too bad, huh?

According to sources, Laurita was let go from the show last season because she was dealing with family problems. Apparently, she’s rested and ready to return. She was rehired to bring some action to what producers felt was a sleepy season.

At this point, former cast member Caroline Manzo has no plans to return. Estranged from her sister Dina, Caroline will be back on Bravo with her own spinoff show in the fall.
