OK, the dance lessons...OMG, really?! I must admit that my statement regarding Dancing with the Stars and the award was a little snide, but God help me, you had to be there, trust me it was beyond ridiculous. However, despite the nonsense, everyone had a great time, and it will remain a good memory for all. I was happy to see the kids take part in the lessons, as it is something that I would never do. I don't dance, and it isn't something I'm particularly comfortable doing. However, I do push my kids to try new things and not be intimidated. I guess this night was a typical "Do as I say and not as I do" thing...crazy, I know, but I am very aware of my insecurities, and BALLROOM DANCING is one of them!
Hmm, as for the conversation between Jacqueline and Danielle, I have no comment just yet. WATCH AND SEE...
As for Danielle...is anybody drinking her Kool Aid???
As always, thanks for watching, and I will talk to all of you again next week!
It is apparent that Danielle has her issues, but I think you and Dina like to team up and act like immature and catty high schoolers. You don't have to love her, but you also don't need to get off on someone else's misfortunes and insecurities. It seems as though you thrive on it.
You are my favorite! I love how you are so protective of your family. I love how you always keep it real! You seem like really good people. I can't help but laugh when you laugh. Your whole face lights up.
OMG Caroline, as a fellow Jersey girl I absolutely love you!!! You are my faorite houswife out of all the seasons & I love how involved with your kids you are, you remind me of my own mom. Keep being real & keep that amazing Jersey attitude going!
Maybe there was more to the dancing than we saw on television. But it looked silly and even a little sexy, but completely appropriate. Your son is not a pre-teen and she did not touch him anywhere inappropriate. Danielle is trying so hard to make friends with all of you that she wanted to impress you with her dancing skills. She is struggling to move beyond her past and become your friend. Give her a break and spend some time getting to know her and understand her.
So you have a little money.....big deal...might I suggest using some of that money for a therapist? Because the entire family could use it!
You are one of my favorites, I love your family. Watching your children at the ball room dancing class was so cute, and they seemed to be having a really good time. I feel bad for Albie, Danielle was stepping way out of line.
You have turned out to be my favorite. Some how I have the feeling you'll be taking over as the most popular of all the Housewives from all franchises.
Love the Jack Russells, have two of them myself.
Of to find the "book"
I have to admit, with the first ad trailers of the show, I wasn't sure about you, but you won me over in the very first episode.
What a great, informed and strong mother and wife you are. No nonsense and tells it like it is. You have such a strong family bond and that to me speaks volumes in this day and age.
Keep on keeping it real. You are a breath of fresh air on the TV. I just love you!
JACQUELINE you remind me of myself. Give everyone a chance - right? No, I have now learned my lesson. Stay close to your family and get rid of Danielle!!!!
Caroline...your my favorite! This sounds kind of wierd but i would love to come work with you daughter if shes serious about the hair buissness. Im a master colorist and have worked with the best for 33 years and if shes willing to learn id be happy to teach her, Please keep me in mind as i could use a break from Miami to do something with your daughter. It would be great fun and she would learn a lot! Cindy 786-374-7644 Ps my daughter left for college 5 years ago and i have a verysimple life here in Miami.....NO DRAMA!!
Can I just say that I love you AND your attitude? You're definitely the coolest housewife on the show!
Why do you think your judge and jury over everything? As a doctor i see that because of your insecurites as you so well put it, you try to control everything else because you never found time to live your own life. So sad.
Caroline you are a misfit in the show.You need to give your family some breathing space and go feed some homeless people around NJ..Danielle is human like you and I am sure you all got some family secrets that you all don't talk about.Plus I read abit about your husband father shot in a car cuz of you know wat..You need to leave Danielle alone you live in a glass house you don't throw stones sweetie..Your husband family had a pass also and who knows what he did,some never surface..You all seems to forget..Who are you to want to investigate others that comes into the family,real mafia saying and actions..You look like a dike..Darn bully...Danielle has children and you all should think about that..What goes around will come around.God is not sleeping,he doesn't like ugly.You went out of your way to investigate the woman and then deny it on tv..You had this grin on your face like you score big..People can be nice without something,you get edgy because you don't like anyone to come in too close to the FAMILY as your culture call it..Keep off the woman and find your age group..
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your love for your family! thank you for opening up your life to us. i admire all of you EXCEPT danielle, a.k.a. beverly?
Caroline,I just love you and your family.I would be satisfied if you had your own show with just you,your hubby and kids.Your youngest son is just so funny !!! You keep it real and I like that.No B.S.from you!!! Just keep doing what you're doing!!!
Caroline you are the greastest!! Family is the most important thing. You have a great gut feeling about people. You are great, you speak whats on your mind. Keep watching out for your family!!
You're *our* favorite -- a true matriarch like Jeana on RHOC. As the matriarch, we're looking for you to step up to the plate and call your brother on his behavior with his stepdaughter and his homophobia & how it represents your family on a gay network.
Who's this "our" & "we", you may ask? It's your gay fans. And let's just say, heed our words 'cuz we've got our eyes on your Albie.
All in good fun! -- Mike
Thank you! Thank you! You are an inspiration and you keep it real. I love that you don't take anyone's bs. Thank you. With Danielle you hit the nail on the head, she is someone you need to get out of your lives she is not a good person or the person she thinks she is. I think you a wonderful mom and an inspiration to others. I see so much of myself in you and I know I am going the right direction with my kids. Thank you
I have to say Caroline is one of my favorite lady's on the show! She is so straight up and real, and I can appreciate that. Her family is hysterical, all I do is laugh when I watch the show. She is one of those strong bread mothers who keeps the whole family together, and it's nice to see that this day in age.
You rock - you are so honest and down to earth. I live in a frigging trailer with neighbors more detached from reality than you ladies. I know it's just a tv show and they can edit together whatever glimpse they feel like giving us - but your kids seem so contented and surprisingly responsible. I'm not saying it isn't fun to watch, or that I haven't noticed, the indulgences in expensive frivolities. But you know what's important. In spite of the little dramas the producers are trying to focus on - it's very refreshing to see that a privileged life can be lived with such healthy priorities. Thanks for being a good example of what people should want at the end of the day. So many of the wealthy people in the public eye seem to work for nothing more than the money. They never seem to put money in its place - as something to enhance an otherwised balanced meaningful life. So much of what you see of well-to-do people is so empty. And so many people buy into it without ever asking themselves why. Of course no one WANTS to be poor, but your family sure gives the impression that it would be just as full of joy in a lower-middle class setting.
I love the show! You crack me up! Now I have my husband watching! I am a 33 year old mom with 4 boys! Oldest is my stepson that is 20! I love the way your boys look at you and how you can joke with them and yet they know when to take you serious!! Your're the best! Keep doing what you do!
I'm an italian mom of two gorgeous boys too! I know just what you were thinking. Danielle was totally out of line. What's with her anyway. Very phony indeed. Keep up the good work Caroline, don't change a thing.
caroline i like you, but please what someone did early in their life is not to be coming up all their life. Why dont you let her explain what happen? I enjoyed the show tonight, but really you three were over the hill.
Caroline, you are my hero! Tell those women how to be a mom! You remind me of another hero of mine, Judge Judy.As a former Jersey girl transplanted to Massachusetts, it does my heart good to hear the King's English spoken without a trace of any accent at all. :) I hope I can hear you all tawk that tawk for another season. I miss the Garden State.
I think you are great. You just have an easy way about you and tell it like it is. I love how you are always there for your kids and providing a good home for them. i would love to hear what it was like when your children were little or you parenting tips for young children. Keep it up.
I find you are absolutely lovely, as well as your family. To have that closeness and to show it to the world without apology is so refreshing. Out of all the Housewives, New Jersey has been my favorite..your a good mom, wife and a wonderful friend. I look forward to seeing more. Thank you....
I just wanted to let you know that your son Albie is such a handsome guy. This season of the real housewives is awesome. It's about time they put a family of women on the show. I come from a huge Italian family and watching the show reminds me of all of us. Your right, blood is thicker than water. I think your relationship with your sister is great. I have a sister that is 12 years younger than me, right now she's 11, but I'm the same way with her as you are with Dina. Anyways, I look forward to the rest of the season!
Oh my gosh....do I love you and the rest of your girls....this is the best installment of "Housewives" yet. You are so 'real' and wonderful darling! Thank you and I look forward to reading your blogs in the future. LOVE YOU!!!!!
First of all I would like to tell you how much my husband & I love you! You and your family are so down to earth and hilarious... just wish there was more of ya'll(yes i'm from texas...i said ya'll) but anyways more of ya'll and less of that drama named danielle. May God Bless your family & can't wait to see what happens next! Love, Angelica
I really felt for Dina. I couldn't even imagine my kids going away for weeks! It's hard enough when they go on a sleepover! But, I think it was great that Lexi got to learn about the country where her Dad was from..that is so important!
It really seems as though Danielle is using Jacqueline to drive a wedge between her and Dina. Sorry, but you always have to take the side of family! I hope it got resolved in a positive manner.
Okay, so if someone is really nice to you that you dont know , you must be suspicous of them.Maybe to you.Ummm that was a very paranoid response.Not everyone has ulterior motives and there are some really nice, good genuine people in this world who are generally nice and confident in who they are and dont put up pretense.Uh I forgot, you only want to be friends with your family.So you dont give anyone else a chance unless they are family, have been in the family or are friends with your family.Right?See my point?Its a little narrow point.
Caroline, I agree 100% about checking people out that may raise your concerns. This is a little extreme, but my dad was murdered in 2002 by his then-wife & her son for the insurance policy. In hindsight, I wished I had known more about her character (what I would have given to have had a book about her at my disposal!!)It has taken me years to get back to my happy-go-lucky self, but now I watch...a lot closer.
You have to be the best mother i have ever seen. I am 20 yeas old married with a one year old and i can only hope that i will be half the mother you are. I know i am very young but i have been playing mommy since i was 12. i have been taking care of my little brother and a few cousins since our parents have not been there for us. I completly agree with your beliefs on how family is number one. I love every memember of my crazy family. When i say crazy i mean it too.. My Father is Dominican, my mother is puerto rican and she remarried an Italian. So you can only imagine how all these cultures collide at times. Anyways, honestly the way you take care of your family and carry yourself, i trully admire you. God bless
As usual Caroline you are right on target. Strength, dignity, humor, a class act of a person. These traights will be what your children percieve and strive to be like.I love watching the show and I love the open way you discuss what is wrong about this person, (Danielle) with your future lawyer. Men always look for that girl, that is so much like their mother. You of all people should never suffer from insecurities, you really do not see how totally O.K., you are.
I LOVE YOU!!! You are absolutely hilarious, and I would have loved to have had a family like yours. Don't get me wrong, I love my family and wouldn't trade them for the world, but still would have been great to have grown up there with all of you.
I cannot wait until the next episode to see how you handle the Danielle situation.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!!
Caroline, Caroline, what can I say about you,,,, other that you are the coolest mom ever. I know that you have your best interest in your kids, but honestly, if I was dancing with Albie I would be doing the same thing. Except looking serious, I would be looking at Albie the whole time. He is just so gorgeous. Of course I would want his hands all over me, look at him. Luscious!!!!!!! But as far as the whole Danielle thing, you have to hope that she will be getting serious medical help after this show. Honestly, you guys are so much better than to be wasting your time and energy on trash like that. Too fab for her!! Love you and the family!!!!!!!
Caroline......My name is Alexis. I am a stay at home mom, so I watch the show every Tuesday. I just wanted to tell you that I think your a great lady.... You are real as far as I can see. Your honest. People like you are few and far between...
Caroline before I begin-you are a very pretty woman that cares dearly for your family. I have five wonderful children (3 boys and 2 girls and all are healthy and my wife had all five and I was at EVERY last birth)and the love you have for your family is the same as ours...I will kill you with my bare hands :) if someone messed with my children. Keep up the pressure on all the kids and make sure your daughter owns the spa because thats what I tell my kids everyday. Thank You P.S. the red hair is banging with all the beautiful shirts you wear. Take Care
Don't judge someone unless you were there and you knew exactly what happened in someones life.
This show is boring and if this is the only way to get ratings then New Jersey housewifes is not going to last.
I do agree with you about Danielle. She seems pretty crazy and she just wont leave. I wish you guys would say something to her though.
Honestly, I thought that I wasn't going to like you when I first started watching the show. I do realize that you have a strong personality and are protective of your family for a reason. I actually admire that about you. However, as far as Jacqueline's friendship with Danielle goes,I would let Jacqueline see that for herself.
