As we go into week six, I need to point out one very significant fact. Week after week you have heard Danielle say how she needs protection against us. Again, for the record, I’ve never threatened anyone in my life. For the last time, THINK BACK – Danielle has made direct threats to each and every one of us, starting last season at the reunion show and continuing to this very day.
I need to close with one final thought – my sincerest apologies to baby Emanuela and her family. I’d like to take this opportunity to ask those of you who are reading this to visit Emanuela’s website - www.emanuelasheartforhope.com. This foundation was launched to help the Stillianasis family with the financial burden of Emanuelas medical bills. I’m thrilled to say that Emanuela is in remission, but she has a long road ahead of her in strengthening her immune system to what it once was. The Stillianasis family recognizes that they have been blessed with the support of many, and want to build this foundation in the hopes of helping other families in need.
Caroline- love watching you and your family. This episode made my stomach turn- not sure if I can continue to watch if Bravo keeps Danielle on the show.
Honestly you were completely right about your garbage comment last year. When you hang out with trash you start to stink and hanging out with a parolee is just trashy. Hopefully Danny's PO will see the episode.
Love you, Caroline! Love your attitude, your common sense, and especially your laugh. :) Your family is lucky to have you.
Caroline, all I want to say is that Christopher did a great job AWESOME !! He acted and handled himself very well. Congrats to you and your family. That woman needs help and needs to leave all of you alone.
Love you all, Terry
Caroline!! You are a great genuine person!!! keep doing what you're doing!!! You carry yourself well :)
Carolyn, I have to say that you and your family have only reacted to Danielle's absolutely crazy antics with complete class and grace. I am absolutely disgusted with how Danielle acted in tonight's episode. It turns my stomach that she has the audacity to parade around an event like that, especially being the place of your family's business. As this season goes on, the more and more I hope for you and your family's sake that Danielle is taken out of the picture all together because NOBODY deserves to be treated like that. You are by far my favorite on the show and each week I enjoy watching you handle this this horrible Danielle situation as an adult and with class. Don't get me wrong, I wish you and your family didn't have to go through this huge headache, but I know with my mind and heart that Karma is a bitch and Danielle will get hers. Thank you for being YOU!
DANIELLE IS SO LOW CLASS. HER "ENTOURAGE" WAS A BIG JOKE, ESPECIALLY THAT LITTLE SQUIRT DANNY. SHE BRINGS ON HER OWN DRAMA.
I've watched the show for both seasons. I think you are a lovely woman and though you are around my age, I wish you were my mother! Your love for your children and family is beautiful to see.
caoline, I love you and the sane girls.. I am just like you. I can always smell a storm coming my way when one is approaching. Keep up that attitude and I hope the sane girls will always listen to YOUR gut. I LOVE YOU
You are awesome! I love watching you and your family. Don't worry, the viewers all know Danielle is nuts.
Caroline, you are right Danielle had no right to do that at All. You and your family are good people,,. oh and Theresa too! Danielle lives for drama.. I was just sick about what she did to that family. This was supposed to be a good cause and she is just Garbage! your an amaizing woman! Jessica
I'm not one to respond to the blogs here but after tonight I just had to get on here. You are so right in everything in your blog Caroline. I have such respect for you and your family in the way you have dealt with Danielle's craziness. I hope that after some of Danielle's "friends" see the episodes air that they will see how they have all been manipulated. You are all such strong women in your family. So, stay strong and safe.
Caroline~ I'm so glad you listed all of Danielle's manipulative stunts in order for her to look like the victim. I've been trying to do the same by commenting on her blogs every week, but I guess my comments become too hateful, so they weren't posted. There are no words to describe what a monster she really is. Not only has she not changed in the last 6 months, but she hasn't changed since her days of being a criminal. On a lighter note, I adore you and your family, which includes Dina, Theresa and their families. It is clear that you are all geniunely big-hearted and family-oriented with a fantastic sense of humor. I hope Bravo knows that all of you could do a show without Danielle and it would be enlightening. And it's good to see that Jacqueline now sees Danielle for the monster she is. I was a bit skeptical of her at first, but I know her intentions were good (Jacqueline's NOT Danielle's!) Best wishes to you all and God bless!
Wow, you literally took the words right out of my mouth. That evil witch is crazy. Please continue to be the amazing role model that you are.
you are such a good person my mother daughter and i sit to watch a glimps of your family every week. thank you for showing class in the face of an uncomfortable situation
I think I watched the whole episode with my jaw to the ground. Unbelievable is all I can saw. My good thoughts are with you and your family in dealing with her.
Ok,Caroline, you were right about Danielle all along. Even way back when you told Jacqueline to stay away from her because she was really not her friend. Danielle was using Jacqueline to get to you guys. Regarding the benefit, think back...just kidding, no really, I could not believe how Danielle continued to say "it was about the baby," but it was really just about getting to the Brownstone...think back to what she said after shaking your son's hand. And, that poor stupid Kim G., what's her deal. I feel sorry from Danielle's girls...her youngest daughter's eyes are so dark. Social services needs to visit their home. Good Luck keeping the shark out of your life.
Why does it take FOUR women to gang up on Danielle everyweek? You all never get together it seem without bringing her up. Who's the crazy one?
You did a wonderful job raising your children. Chris was very professional and pleasant when the lunatic and her possee showed up at the Brownstone. Danielle is a nut job. I cannot believe she brought known criminals to a fundraiser. I wish someone will put that Danny fella in his place. I think he needs to do another 10 years in jail!
Caroline - I applaud that you can take the high road. Whether she was asked to present or be there is really not the point - everyone's adults and should be able to act accordingly.
Obvioulsy Danielle expected and wanted a confrontation. It's obvious because of who all she invited and they way she expained and invited everyone to "have her back". Everything that was said she interpreted as Manzo's out to get her. She changed the context of everything and in her mind believed everything was a Manzo vendetta, whether it was the organizer's request or not - she obviously would only believe that it was solely due to the Manzo's.
She should act like an adult and apologize for not! She misinterpreted everything that was said and accordingly did not act like an adult there to benefit the child and the cause. She owes you all an apology! Good luck on getting that!
I have the utmost respect for you. I feel about my family the same way you do.
I agree with every single point you made.
Danielle is unbelievable. I sat and watched the show with my mouth hanging open. I could not believe what she was saying and doing. I seriously hope your producers are paying attention to this woman and her problems. She is frightening.
Sorry you and your family have to deal with Danielle. You are handling things just right. Everyone needs to just step away from her. I must say I enjoy watching what's happening next. Danielle sure does keep the drama rolling.
Caroline like you said before that your paying the price for talking about Danielle then just stop its not worth it! You are a smart woman and use your brain against her, because apparently she has no brain!
I love the bond with your family. My family is very similar to yours.
Crazy episode! Of course, it involved crazy Danielle. What she did at the Brownstone was totally out of line. I'm glad your hubby and son kept it very professional the entire time. You were wise not to attend because I would have punched her right then ad there. I think you avoiding Danielle i for the best. Your focus should definitely be you family. Sadly, her focus is terrorizing the Manzos. She really should focus on her girls. In her blog, she attacks Teresa for not being a good parent. She wouldn't necessarily fit in the "good parent" category herself.
Anyway, enough about Danielle abd back to you. You really are blessed to have a family like yours. There's many families that unfortunately do not have that bond and it's not good. Anyway,hope you and your family are doing great.
P.S. Take a look at my comments on Danielle's blog!!!!
Hi Caroline, Your words speak volumes. AMEN sister.It was nice to see the Sheriff dept making an appearance at the fundraiser. And by the looks of things, no one seemed to miss her or her "friend", KIM B. The place was packed and if she was "guest of honor" people would have been asking about her. That was my take. She showed up with an entourage of trouble makers. I wish they would have tried something. It would have been fun seeing them hauled off in handcuffs. The Hells Angels no longer hold the clout they once did.But they still have a reputation of passing women around like hoe bags. Maybe that's where Danielle fits in with them. Just sayin... them.
as a hotel mrg i couldn't see anything wrong w. the way ya'll treated them. i admire and applaud your family for taking the high road to assist them w. another table (even though the cheap skate didn't pay a DIME). so hard to see that kind of hospitality these days and considering what she's done to your family...wow. ya'll definitely are a pleasure to watch each week and i hope she leaves ya'll alone...
You and yours make HWNJ so much fun to watch. Danielle is so incredibly disturbed and scary that I have a hard time supporting this season because I don't want my choice in viewing to increase any possibilities that she may be asked to return. She needs to be on Jerry Springer, not BRAVO. I think you are an amazing mother, sister, friend and lady. I believe strongly in Karma and I believe that all good things will come to you and yours and pray that the Karma that will be knocking on Danielle's door doesn't effect her daughters.
Caroline - While I appreciate your love and dedication to your family and your desire to explain everything, I can assure you than none of us in the sane world need any explanation!! The whole absurd show that nasty vile thing put on was very clear!! The only thing that we now know that we maybe didnt get last season is that she has NOT changed in 20 years and you saw that before ANYONE!!! You have alot of support out here!!! Stay Strong!!
Caroline you are my favorite housewife!! You are a wonderful mother and an awesome wife. Thank you for always telling the truth. Continued success to you and your family.
Im truly sorry for your family and the havoc that this woman has brought to each of you. I sat here with my mouth hanging open unable to believe my eyes,ears and even my heart. Danielle is someone I would not wish on my worst enemy. Stay calm, stick together and know that the tv camera's dont lie. We all see it!!
Caroline, your kids are awesome and classy and intelligent and kind, as are you and your husband. Enough said. Salud!
I love you Caroline! You're my favorite on this show. Just looking out for your family. Danielle is a trouble maker and a wannabe. She so badly wants to 'fit in' with your family but you are all wise to steer clear of her. She's trouble!
I love you and your family. Anyone in their right mind knows what time it is. I am soooo glad that baby Emanuela is in remission. That's wonderful news. Keep bein' you Manzos and Giudices! America loves you. xoxo
Everyone knows what she is and what she does. Your family is wonderful and did everything people with class do. All the viewers need to send Bravo a message and stop supporting her crazy all together.
I think you are spot on, Caroline!
And, for the record, I loved the way you handled the Kim G. lunch situation. I really thought that it couldn't have been handled better and you made the best decision (obviously). I think you're exactly right - it's not worth risking your son's friendship with someone over Danielle. I hope that after that event nothing has changed between the boys either!
First I would like to say thank you for sharing your life with the world. I was not a fan of yours last season. I still have some issues with what I see, but that is minimal compared to what I feel about Danielle. You are a wonderful, loving, giving mother. As for your son Christopher, let me say this, and not in a gay way, but he is a wonderful, strong, compassionate, loving, funny as all heck ind young man. You can see it in hs eys and warm smile. What a wonderful human being you raised. For this Danny person or Danielle to put him in her ugly drama is disgusting. You raised a beautiful human being that is Christopher. If I were a CEO of a major corporation, he would be the man I would go to to help manage my business. Secent, honest, hardworking ambitious people like him is what all work places need.. God bless him and thank you for producing such a person for the world to enjoy. Some woman will be very lucky when he chooses them to be his spouse...
Caroline, you are a classy lady. I applaud you on standing firm to disassociate yourself from Danielle. I imagine it's been difficult to avoid all her drama but hang in there. I also commend you for your mention of Emanuala. It was very thoughtful for you to include a link to her website and brief note about her and her family and how she is doing. I noticed on Danielle's blogs she mentioned her in just one sentence and directed people to contact herself thru Facebook. Again seeking attention for herself.
Thanks Caroline for giving us the straight scoop. Jeanne and I just finished watching the show and could believe the audacity that woman has. I hear she raised $300.00 for the benefit, and she didn't even donate. Oh that poor family. Bless their little daughter. Well see you next week Caroline, and keep it up being the classiest on the show. Just rumor, but I think the producers of Jersey Shore are looking for a house mother for their next season. Maybe Danielle might fit in well over there. Take care
I can't belive how This went down So immature and so Much mis-understanding I mean Caroline and all the Other H.wifes should Know that Danille Was asked to go and Then Danielle on the other hand Is stupid to bring 20 People with her wtf! U (danielle) looked Like u came lookin for Trouble!
Caroline, you seem like a mature, level headed lady, so why do you devote so much time to Danielle. If you're so disgusted by her why not NOT make comments about her at all. Just sayin.
Where do I begin.......I have watched severeal of the Housewives shows being from California House wives of Orange County was one of my favorites, until I saw season one of Housewives of New Jersey & instantly got hooked.
You & your family are amazing and wonderful. Your family is so blessed to have you. I'm glad you and the rest of the cast chose to do the show. I know there is some craziness with a certain someone, but are always classy & professional on how you handle everything even under the hardest & most difficult situations. Viewers watching can clearly see who has the problem & causes the problem. I only wish everyone would have listened to you the first season. Sometimes people have to see for themselves before realizing they were wrong........Glad to see your family is stronger then ever & united,that's the way it should be. & that's what matters the most.
My whole family watches the show and adores you. You are a amazing women, great mother your kids are wonderful, respectful young adults. I hope I do a great job with my kids as you have done with yours mine are still little. Family is important & unity. You do a great job!!!
Caroline usually you transend all the Danielle nonsense & drama.Not that its deserved but if you can for just a nano-second can understand some of the devastation Danielle has been exposed to by the entire nation.I know myself to see myself more clearly in hindsight when looking back 15 years ago. Your a intensely loyal & wonderful woman. How about you & your fellow lionesses leave Danielle be for a little while? Is such a thing possible?
