Dina and Caroline Manzo are both getting blunt about their ongoing family feud, but each woman has a different version of events.

Dina discussed her family feud -- involving Caroline, their sister-in-law, "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Jacqueline Laurita, and their brother, Chris -- during Part 1 of the "RHONJ" reunion, which aired Sunday. As a result of the tension, Dina does not have a relationship with her nephew, Nicholas.

"Nicholas doesn't know me," she said. "I have to say what hurts me more is my daughter [Lexie]. [Chris is] her godfather and she grew up with him. I'm more bothered for the kids that understand. She's so innocent in all this. Lexie's such a good girl. I invited everybody to Lexie's graduation party and [they didn't come]."

Dina said she doesn't know if she will go to the wedding of Caroline's daughter, Lauren, since she was not invited to the engagement party.

Caroline went on "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen and gave her side of the story, saying Dina wasn't invited to the party for good reason.

"Over the past four years, five years, Dina has never attended any family function at all," Caroline attested. "We've got nieces and nephews that are 3, 4, 5 years old, 9 months old, that she doesn't know. She didn't go to my brother Jamie's wedding. Babies were born, baptisms, graduations, birthdays ... Not just [in my family]. Not just Chris. My nieces, my nephews, along the line. To single that out is insane."

Apparently, Dina told Chris she could only have a relationship with him without Jacqueline.

"This is a man that has a son that has special needs, and you're saying for him to leave his wife in order for you to have a relationship with?" Caroline said. Adding: "I want my family back. I have done everything in my power to make that happen and so have the rest of us. Dina has to grow up."

RadarOnline.com reported Jacqueline may return to "RHONJ" as a full-time cast member next season after making cameos during Season 6. Dina has criticized Jacqueline for teasing their family drama as a Season 7 storyline.

"I will not be doing this for a storyline and 'Housewives,'" she said in a YouTube confessional. "This goes much deeper and is much more important to me than that."
