The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘ will soon have one less drama queen.

Dina Manzo is leaving the show, according to Zap2it.

Bravo piqued viewers’ curiosity at the end of the last episode by airing a preview tease that revealed someone from the show would be “leaving forever.”

Speculation quickly ensued with plenty of prime suspects, from new sex tape star Danielle Staub to debt-ridden castmate Teresa Giudice, who recently filed for bankruptcy.

Bravo would only comment that: “While there is a lot of speculation about who, if anyone, is leaving the cast – viewers will have to tune in on Monday night to find out the truth.”

‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ airs Mondays at 10/9c on Bravo.
