OK, let's talk about the charity event at The Brownstone. First and foremost, please understand that this is an event that The Brownstone has catered for at least ten years. Imagine my surprise to find out that Danielle was to attend! I’ve never seen her at a charity event in the past, so naturally, my hackles went up. I’m not proud of my reaction, I have to be honest, but I just didn’t get it, something just didn’t seem right. Maybe I’m paranoid, maybe I’m just being a bitch, I guess we’ll have to see how this plays out. One favor, stick with me on this one. If I’m wrong, then I’m wrong, let’s see what the next couple of episodes reveal.
Ummm, Danny? Danny who? I was shocked, appalled, mortified, and disgusted as I watched that scene. Body guards? What??? For the record, I’ve never, ever, in my life threatened Danielle Staub or anyone else for that matter. Actually, this is the first and only time that I’ve ever confronted anyone at this level. It doesn’t make me happy, and it isn’t something I gloat about. There are times in life when you just have to deal with situations in a manner that is so out of the normal realm of your world. This is that moment for me. Once again, I would rather be thought of as a bully than a coward. The only thing I fear from this Danny person (who by the way, neither I, nor anyone in my family have ever seen him or heard of him before) is his circa 1974 feather haircut. This should be interesting, watch along with me, and tell me what you think.
Dina and her meeting at Jacqueline’s house. Pleaseeee, leave me alone! I was at home, minding my business, when I got a call to report to Jacqueline’s. First of all, I meant what I said, if Dina wants to have closure from Danielle it has to come from Dina, no one else!!! Then I'm told I'm crazy, OK, I’m crazy, guess what? We’ll see who’s crazy when you make an attempt to have a conversation where you tell someone that even though I don’t have a problem with you, I don’t want any part of you. Why bother? You know how it’s going to end. Save yourself the aggravation. Why is it I always get in trouble when giving advice? Guess what, then DON’T ASK. Don’t call me. If someone thinks enough of my opinion, the least I can do is tell the truth, I owe them that much. Wouldn’t you agree?

well i figured out that if you write something negative about Caroline it won't get posted but i will give it another try. You can't call people garbage and trash and then say what a great example you are. you know be honest and stop trying to be everyone's mouth piece. You are probably a nice old lady but you can't deny you are a bully and dominate most of the women on the show and it is like in high school when you feel safe and tough because you are friends with the girl who can take most of the guys so you treat people like garbage, and i think that must have been something someone called you because you seem really to use that word with passion and more than just a name, there is more to it , the classiest thing to do would be to show some sorta compassion and i wonder would you dare to say those things to any one but Danielle she is an east target because you ganged up on her and i could care less about her but i wish you would stop being a big bully oh yeah and you are proud , great example, you are the balls!!!!
Dearest Caroline, Nobody is perfect but you are as close as I imagine any woman can get.Your strength inspires me.Please continue to share your values with us and do not let anyone like Danielle take you to a lower level.Thank you so much for the inspiration. Hilde
Caroline, I love to watch the show, you remind me so much of myself. I love my family and will fight to the end for them. I will also let them know when they are wrong. Hopefully Danielle will get some mental help!!! But, she does bring much drama to the show.
Dear Ms Caroline,
I just wanted to tell you that you remind me alot about my mother and what ever she belives in she sticks up for and she puts her family first. I am a twin and the oldest by five minutes and while I was growing up I viewd both my parents as mentor's alot of my choices that I made after leaving home if it wasnt for my parents and thier love and understanding and teaching us kids right from wrong. I could have made wrong choices but I didn't I served in the Military Intelligence for two years and nine months and the last year was 1983 in which I had recieved a letter that my mother had bone and lung cancer when I showed the letter to my commanding officer they dischangred me under General underHonarable conditions and I was able to be with my mother for a year before she passed away and she still is in my thoughts shes a blessing and an angel. So when I watch your show on bravo I think you are all great and a true family of togetherness!
Bless you and your family!
I hesitated at watching yet another Housewives series until I heard you speak up for yourself in a promo ad. You seriously give me inspiration. I always thought I was such a b@tch when I acted strong or demanded the respect I deserved. Not anymore after seeing you! You hold yourself with such class and dignity. You don't let others drag you down and you hold your ground. You somehow hold that entire family together through it all and I admire that. I hope I can be the same as I continue to grow. Thank you and good luck to you and your family!
I really appreciate you on this show. When I first started watching, I thought you were so mean! Now I see that you are what you said, "protective of your family". I have respect for you as a woman and mother. You got the Danielle character's number right away. You seem like a class act. Much respect to you.
OMG! I've been trying to find that dress since that episode too!!! It was gorgeous on Lauren & Caroline. I'm "blessed in the chest" (LOL) too and the dress looks so flattering to the bust and curves. MUST HAVE IT!!! :-)
I must say that I LOVE the class that your family portrays. The way you all carry yourselves and the way you handle any situation that is handed to you. Many people could take a page out of your book. I just now started reading your blog and look forward to reading more! This seems silly, but last season there was a dress top that your daughter wore that was white and purple I believe; silky and flowy... I don't know if you know which one I'm speaking of, but I have been in AGONY trying to locate one just like it! LOL As I said, I look forward to reading more!
I love your attitude, Telling it like it is and standing up to anything that affects your family and friends and not backing down. I think you're terrific
Caroline, would you mind sharing where you get your swimsuits? Last season you were wearing a bikini top that looked very supportive of the "girls." I am blessed in that area and cannot find bikini tops that fit well and are supportive. Please share.....Thanks
Caroline....Love you and love the way you and Albie love your kids....makes this Texas girl proud to be a fan and friend of your great New Jersey family....
LMAO... I just read what you said about your husband going to get a sandwich while you were in labor, my husband had to...just had to go get a pastrami sandwich while i was in labor. His words to the doctor "How long u think she going to be, I'm hungry...he went and got that sandwich, missed the birth and was holding the sandwich while i was holding our son..men...LOL
Hey Caroline --we all know Danielle is nuts, but be thankful you don't have to deal with Kelly from NYC!!
old lady!!! really!!! picture the show with out danielle??? do you think we would sit there and watch your old behind!!!
OMG..!!!! Love you Caroline.....your the real deal....Love you for being truthful and Just being you..
You and Teresa are my favorites (I love Jacqueline and Dina also). I was so appalled by the Garbage's behavior at the Brownstone. She wants class so much but she will always be in the sewer. She is a pig. I can't believe that she could think that being with Danny and those men would make people have any respect or sympathy for her. GARBAGE!!! What really upset me was Kim G. She is also Garbage in my book. What kind of a mother is she. To set Christopher up, her son's best friend. Christopher was a gentleman. She may have money, a Bentley and driver, but she certainly does not have any class. I'm with you, if you attack my family, you will have a big problem with me. I totally respect the way you addressed her son about the invitation she extended to you. I think you did the right thing. I am very happy that Jacqueline and Dina see through Danielle. They are both very innocent. Love you - Stay strong and although I would like someone to knock Danielle on her ass, I know its best to get her intellectually. In a battle of wits, she is unarmed with you.
Caroline,I also have 2 sons, who I love very much. I also support them in anything they may want to do...HOWEVER, Chris' idea for a strip club should not be encouraged by you or anyone else. The degradation to women is clearly obvious in these places, no matter how upscale they may be. Please re-think this issue.
Absolutely love your show:)...the real family atmosphere makes this show....all of the children(from babies to young adults) are beautiful:)....the bickering with your sister was so funny...i thought it was hysterical how indignant you became at dina:)....true sister fun!!!...good luck & again, i love this show!!!
L-O-V-E you and your wonderful closenet family! I think secretly Danielle wants to be you, why else would she be so obsessed with you and your family :). As Danielle would say "just saying", she's such a waste. Her ex-con entourage was histarical! Who shows to a cancer benefit for a child with criminals?!?! The mix is less then diserable! She made it all about her, what a self absorbed witch. Keep charging foward and saty true to your family, they are all you need!
You are hands down my favorite, why, we are too similar. With my family and friends, I'm like a Mama Bear with her cubs; you cross the line you're leaving with stubs. I've actually had to do this before -nose to nose with a guy calling my mom nasty names. I've always been this way, you let someone walk over you and you just become a doormat for everyone else. You have to be somewhat of a "bully" you can't survive in the world and be a "coward."
I can hardly wait for tonights episode, though I have a good idea where it's going since Danielle is going to be there with her "protection" -Dramaville with the mayor Danielle. I can only hope that having her watch how she has acted this season will help her see that something is wrong...but having read her post -I don't think that is happening. She needs to drink the punch she trying to serve and lay off the one she's chugging.
Best of luck with everything and your family!!
I wrote a comment a few days ago asking Caroline a question. I did not see it posted, so here goes again. Would you associate with anyone who does not have the same financial stability as you? That includes anyone who is below middle class income.
Caroline: If I'd have had you as my mother my life would have turned out much different! My mother was very wishy washy, and was more interested in being my friend than being my mother. Hmm. Sound like 2 girl's mother to you? Anyway, I have just spent quite a bit of time on the Brownstone website, and I was speechless at how beautiful it is. Wow, how proud you must be to be a part of something that has been such a treat for your community as The Brownstone has been. I'm looking to leave California where I reside now, and believe it or not New Jersey or New York are 2 of the places I have looked into. Funny, my family has told me for years that I must have been delivered to the wrong family because my attitude and opinionated self are more eastern than western. The part of California that I live in is more concerned with being "PC" than being human, and unless you're culture is from a country located somewhere in Asia, then no one pays much attention. But I'm Italian! We can talk faster and louder than them all! Love you Caroline. You're a great mother, and you seem like the kind of woman who would be a good friend.
Great attitude towards your child's goals. My parents were the same way. As long as it wasn't illegal or hurt someone then I could do whatever I enjoyed. I can see that you have instilled a good work ethic in each of your children.
Dina wants to make amends with Danielle with which I agree is right for her. For you, leaving her well enough alone is the right decision. If she is only going to bring you down or anger you then why even try? I enjoy watching you and your family!
I don't know? do you read these? Well, if so I must tell you. You are to be admired. I love love love this blog. You are so honest and so real. And what an awesome wife and mother. I think your friends and family are blessed to have you.
LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU. LOVE YOU!!
well just quite the opposite, BUT it looks like in order to get a post comment, people can ONLY can say nice things about you.
I realate to you in that I am so much older than my sisters. I understand your need to protect them and your family. My oldest son thinks outside of the box as yours does. Hopfully they will go far. I think Daneille went to the Brownstone to be a stirer. Bravo showed two men come to her and beg for her to come for one of their daughter's. I she had good intentions. She would have called you or a manger or your spouce and said Hi I know we have differences but a good friend wants me to come so I said yes. Then you would know she was coming and you would habe been prepared.
Caroline.... you are the best. What a classy lady you are. Family first, I am the big sister and I feel the same way. I love your kids.
I only wish I grew up with the family dynamic that you have. Never was I able to be as open with my parents as your children are with you and Albert. Tons of respect for you guys!!
P.S.--SAVE OUR COAST--KEEP UP WITH ALL THE LATEST NEWS AS THIS IS HAPPENING VERY CLOSE TO MY HOMETOWN!!! EVERYONE, PLEASE DO ALL YOU CAN TO CONTRIBUTE TO SAVING THE WETLANDS, WILDLIFE AND A MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY THAT IS VERY MUCH IN JEOPARDY AS MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF OIL SPILL INTO THE GULF OF MEXICO EVERYDAY.
You are the most honest speaking housewife on Bravo! I don't understand why people get their panties in a bunch over a woman who simply tells it like it is, speaks from the heart and shares honesty with everyone. Why in today's society are all those virtues considered a bad thing!? Caroline, more people should be like you, then maybe we wouldn't have malicious and petty drama. *Cough *Cough...DANIELLE!
Caroline To me ,from what I saw ,Danielle was making an all out threat toward you and Teresa.And anyone else in the area! I've been married to a policeofficer for 33 years and I think I know a threat when I hear one. Someone PLEASE put this woman away some place. You make me laugh and I like you. I wish I could meet you.And thank you for supporting law enforcement. MJD
You remind me so much of myself, you mess with my family you mess with me! I think you are a pretty damn good judge of character...If it quacks like a duck...and waddles like a duck.....it's usually a duck!!! I think we both know who I'm talking about! Have a great Day!
Of all the Housewives (OC, GA, NY and NJ), you are my favorite. You are the most real. I admire the family dynamic that you have created and I hope in fifteen years when my kids are Albie's age that I have achieved and maintained the same dynamic. Thank you for showing that strong women are truly the backbone of a happy family.
I love Caroline. She is so real and very cool. What a wonderful mother she is. I love that she is no nonsense or drama. I wish I had a mother just like her! Kristopher
Caroline: I think you are such an amazingly talented woman, mother and friend. The faith, trust and love you have for your family is remarkable. It seems however that your sister uses this to her advantage when is comes to stirring up trouble for others. You have said before " blood is thicker than water," and you are so very right in saying so, but this does not give Dina the right to use it and hide then behind you when she cant control her childish behavior and wagging tongue. Just because you say this does not give her cart blanche' to put it to the test all the time. I wish she had the absolute class you have Caroline. She really could learn alot from you about being a respectful woman, sister, mother and friend. I doubt fighting her battles for her can be much fun for any length of time. Anybody would grow weary having to deal with such uncessary drama all the time. Perhaps in the future she will also come to see that all you have in this life was earned and worked for. You live as you live because of that hard work and dedication to the family and friends you so very much love. Alot of people could learn alot from you and the code of ethics and morals you live by. You have an amazing reputation to uphold, one you rightly deserve and have worked hard for. Perhaps Dina can grasp this and give you a break in the next season. Sometimes if you have nothing nice to say, your probably better off not saying anything at all. I hope this next season is better for you, for all of you. Love, health and happiness to you and your family!!
I love you! I think your an awesome wise woman! Danielle is just bitter because you are straight forward and dont work around your true feelings.. You always give great advice!
Caroline: Thanks for being so true to yourself and family and for the WONDERFUL role model you are to all of us Mom's & sisters. I will keep you all in our prayers that Danielle will quit bringing drama into your life any way she can. I so enjoy the show and again THANKS for just being YOU... your Mama should be very PROUD.
I just love ya!!!!xxooo God Bless you and your family:) Your very right about that women or what is she LOL she will never and could never be ae gumbati....
I love you and your approach to life with kids! I wish you would write a parenting book.I would sooo buy it and it would be well worth the money! I admire the way you handle your family. Stay strong!
Caroline, If more mothers raised their children as you do... Well it would definately be a better place. I have to admit that You are my Favorite of all the Housewives series. You are truly a breath of fresh air! You and your husband both look amazing! Al looks so much healthier this season and you just seem to glow! Every state needs a "Caroline" - On a slightly humorous note.... Should you ever decide to run for President??? You've got MY VOTE!!! Hugs to you all!
Caroline- I think you are a beautiful, devote mother. I love your honesty!!! I read Danielles blog and you definitely do not need a makeover, you are beautiful just as you are!! I can't wait to watch more of you and your family!
Caroline, I am trying to get this point into your blog to no avail. Pleaseeeeeee.... You are a favorite of mine from all the housewife shows. One thing that I find disappointing, however, is Christopher's strip club scene. For the sake of young women viewers, including the daughters in your show, why include that inappropriateness as part of your story? And you talk about Danielle?? Strip clubs are demeaning to women, and there are too many young girls who watch this show who will pick up a mixed message in this story line. To see a strong woman like yourself congratulate and endorse her son's questionable chosen line of work is ironic to say the least. You should have just said NO! Iron fist Caroline, iron fist.
Caroline you remind me of my Aunty and god bless her. The things you say just remind me of the words she says and not afraid to spill it out. So strong, powerfull, protected and yes a B with a Itch in it, just like how she were hehehe, but i love your ways and style. God Bless you and your family and the whole Jersey Ladies.
I wish you were my mom. Watching you every week and on Watch What Happens Live, you are the mother I always wanted. I hope your children cherish you as much as you cherish them.
Not surprised at all that theres nothing but love & respect for you from everyone who watches the show. Yes, in this last episode you were in rare form but it just goes to show you that you're human and thats what makes you even more endearing. You're the classiest housewife of them all and I mean ALL the cities! You're a breath of fresh air to the housewives franchise; proof that money & success doesn't change a strong foundation with morals & values. Your relationship with your friends & family, especially your husband and children only confirms that. On a final note: you have to know that I absolutely love your one-liner pearls of wisdom! You have to find a way to market them - little magnets with your quotes would be so cute! They'd sell, believe me! Thanks for making my monday nights an escape from my own reality.
