Knocked For A Loop

What does Caroline have to say about her scuffle with Jacqueline, Joe's gay comment, and Danielle's reputation? Find out!

I'm not sure where to go with this blog. It seems redundant to discuss things that have already been addressed. I guess I will just touch on the new issues.

First, Jacqueline and the PUNCH - true story. Jacqueline's hormones were in a rage shortly after giving birth to CJ. I said it before and I'll say it again: We are an extremely close family. When one calls, we all come running. It was an ugly day, an ugly time for all concerned. We are the type of family that addresses everything head on, no holds barred. We dealt with it, listened, understood, and apologized. All is forgiven, and quite frankly, forgotten. I will say it again - Jacqueline and I have a tremendous relationship. It is based on mutual respect and love. We are fine.

Teresa found herself having to defend Joe's "gay" comment. I would agree, that there is certainly room for someone to take offense to it. However, I've known Joe and Teresa for a long time. This was not done with malice. I have a gay brother, I wasn't offended by it.

The bottom line is people were hurt, and Teresa apologized on Joe's behalf, which was the right thing to do.

My father-in-law. I felt a strong need to talk about this as I had been dealing with this in the press for months. Every time I did an interview my side of the story was never told. There is an elephant in the room and I had to address it. I hope the viewers understand and have clarity on things now. Some may say that I have no right to condemn Danielle. Valid point. The only problem is that our stories are worlds apart. My story is not about me, or my husband. My husband and his family have a stellar reputation in the community as being a hard working, honest family, that gives back to the community in many, many ways. Now, Danielle's story is about her. Not a brother, sister, parent, or friend. HER. This reputation far precedes her coming into our lives, and the introduction of the book. To this very moment Danielle reputation is suspect in every way, shape, and form throughout HER town.

I've said in interviews over the past couple of weeks that the reunion show knocked me for a loop. It's true, I wasn't right for days following the taping. As you can see from the clips I get very emotional. I'm not looking forward to watching next weeks show, not so sure that I even will. If you don't hear from me next week, I want you all to know that I appreciate each and every one of you, and I can't thank you enough for watching and your continued support.

Dina: What am I Doing Here?

Dina Manzo explains what it's like to sit on the reunion couch.

Hi all, 

I kind of meant what I said on that couch -- this show is so f---ed up. As I sit and watch the reunion, I wonder what goes through people's head sometimes. Bobby literally spitting on me as he screams at a friend of 10 years, Jim whipping out his files and then of all things says I have a fat ass, LOL! For what? Fame? I literally sat there saying to myself time and time again, "What the hell am I doing here?" Again, not ever saying I'm too good, but just different. There is something really beautiful that came out of this though...I am seeing some real proof of my practices. Take a look

Sending you a ton of love for your support! 

Dina xoxo
