What is the feud between RHONJ sisters Caroline and Dina Manzo?

Caroline and Dina have not seen eye-to-eye, nor spoken, in years.

Dina previously claiming that her older sister grew "jealous" when she married her husband Thomas.

Dina and Thomas married in 2005 and filed for divorce in 2013. It was finalized three years later.

Caroline has been married to Albert Manzo, Thomas' brother, for 36 years.

The feud between the sisters started when Caroline publicly supported Thomas, despite the allegations against him for attacking Dina.

What are the charges against Thomas 'Tommy' Manzo?

Thomas, 56, was recently charged alongside alleged co-conspirator James Mainello, 53, of breaking into Dina's townhouse in May 2017, just two weeks after she got engaged to Dave Cantin.

Dave and Dina were beaten by two men wearing masks.

A diamond ring worth $60,000 was stolen from their home, according to assistant prosecutor Caitlin Sidley.

One of the attackers allegedly shouted during the home invasion: “This is what happens when you f-**k with a guy from Paterson."

Thomas is an owner of The Brownstone, a catering hall in Paterson.

Thomas has also been accused of "hired a member of the Lucchese Crime Family to assault Dave back in 2015.

Court papers show Tommy allegedly gave John Perna Dave's home and work address and car description in order to find and attack him.

Thomas apparently made the deal with John in exchange for a large discount on a wedding reception at The Brownstone.

What did Caroline Manzo say about Thomas Manzo's charges?

Caroline Manzo was slammed for reportedly asking a judge to free her former brother-in-law Thomas from jail.

Caroline described Thomas as "kind-hearted and caring" in a letter read at a hearing, NJ.com reported.

RHONJ fans lashed out at Caroline when Dina's friend and assistant Luke McKibben shared a post about Caroline supporting Thomas.

One critic raged: "Shady AF! Who supports someone that tortured her own sister."

Another wrote, "This makes me so sad. I really liked Caroline but this is not a good look at all," while a third urged: "You need to support your sister."

Dina herself commented on Luke's post saying that she's sick of people "taking her kidness for weakness."

The Bravo alum wrote: "Normally Lukey I would ask you to take this down but ya know what? I'm starting to think some just expect us to stay quiet while they continue to hurt others… that's what gives them 'power'."
