real housewivesA few days after news broke that Caroline Manzo would be leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the name of her replacement has already popped up. It's a face we are all familiar with and not everyone will be happy with the choice. But in the world of the Real Housewives, that's a good thing because it guarantees some drama.

According to In Touch Weekly, Dina Manzo will be returning to the cast. That would be the same Dina Manzo that quit the cast in season 2. As her sister exits to focus on the spinoff Manzo'd With Children, word is she wants to come back. To say the timing is interesting is an understatement. The two siblings have been at war for years, barely speaking to each other. Now Dina can return without having to worry about any uncomfortable run-ins. Plus, her life has changed a lot since she was last trailed by Bravo cameras. She is reportedly now separated from her husband.

Still, her decision to rejoin the fray is perplexing. She originally left the show because of all the toxic drama. Though it’s not like that has changed. However, it’s good news for Teresa Giudice. Dina is the only one that has always backed the table-flipping star.

While I think Dina will be interesting -- she's not one to hide her dislike for someone or hold her tongue -- I have to wonder if this is really the best decision for the show. Isn't it time for some new blood. The New Jersey cast will be going into the sixth season and it seems like the same old drama keeps getting rehashed. It would be much more interesting to shake things up a bit.

Do you think Dina will be good for the show?
