Doesn’t this strike you as a little weird, BFFs? Caroline decided to vacation with Jill instead of her own sister, Dina, who just so happened to leave the Real Housewives of New Jersey last season!

Is Caroline Manzo trading her own sister in for another Real Housewives star? It certainly seems that way! Instead of staying with her sister, Dina, in the Hamptons last weekend, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star stayed with a different Housewife -  NYC’s Jill Zarin!

“Dina had rented a house for the entire week, but her big sis Caroline opted to stay with Jill!” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

Very odd indeed – especially given that Dina left the show last season because of a feud with fellow cast member Danielle Staub - but there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood between the sisters. The siblings still partied  together at socialite Brittny Gastineau‘s Tres Glam trunk show July 23 at London Jewelers before heading on to upscale East Hampton nightclub Lily Pond.

Dina and Caroline were dancing like crazy on stage,” says our source. ” Jill and Bobby Zarin, Ramona Singer and [her husband] Mario were there, too. They were all sitting in a booth taking pictures and talking. They all seemed to be getting along.”

Whether or not Dina minded that her sister had a new partner-in-crime, Jill and Caroline’s friendship has definitely escalated to BFF status. The two continued to party together throughout the weekend heading to upscale East Hampton eatery Georgica July 24 for blogger Micah Jesse’s birthday bash.  Relays our source, “Caroline and Jill were inseparable at that party, too!”
