"When I went home at the end of the night and I was shaking instead of feeling inspired, I knew there was something wrong," she said. "At the very beginning of filming we had a lot of fun ... Because they weren't sure what direction the show was going into -- it was before the table flip happened."
However, In Touch reports now that Dina's estranged sister Caroline Manzo is reportedly leaving the show for her own spinoff and former cast member Danielle Staub is long gone, Dina could return full-time to the Bravo series.
“The timing is perfect -- Caroline won’t be returning next season," a source told In Touch. “She has her spinoff and that’s what she’s moving on to. She might appear in a couple episodes here and there."
A spokesperson for Bravo had no comment on the report.
"Real Housewives of New Jersey" airs Sundays, 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
