Caroline talks Danielle drama, responds to threats, and recaps Fashion Week.

 

So, here we are, week three. I feel like the entire episode focused around Danielle Drama. Quite frankly, I’m bored with it. I do know however, that there is a light at the end of this tunnel. There are good times ahead, promise!

I do feel the need to elaborate on one thing from last week. I think that I make it abundantly clear from week to week that I am my own person with a backbone who is not afraid to accept responsibility for things I say and do. I will say it again ... my comment on Danielle’s children was not an insult to them, rather an observation about Danielle and her parenting. The girls are beautiful, bright, respectful kids. I would never go there. However, Danielle found the need to insult both Jacqueline and Teresa’s children, two weeks in a row. Secondly, I believe that Danielle has threatened me once again. First was last season when she said to all of us that she would "come knocking" and she wouldn’t be alone. Last week she suggested that I made a "BIG MISTAKE." To me, that’s a threat. Please take note that I have NEVER in any way, shape, or form threatened Danielle. I told her what I thought of her to her face. No threat, no underlying message, no stalking her house, and yet she fears me?

Give me one example where I have bullied her, threatened her. If speaking my mind and standing up to her threats makes me a bully, then so be it. I’d rather be a bully than a coward.

Read Jacqueline's blog, the one who gave her a chance, the one who went against everyone has a lot to say ... 

 

Jacqueline and the boys are too cute for words. She’s very hands on with them and is dedicated to their well-being. I felt bad when CJ said he didn’t like to see Jacqueline and Ashley fight, so did Jacqueline. However, it was a good thing for all to see, one of those moments when you look at yourself from the outside in and learn from it. I haven’t spoken to Ashley to see how she felt, but I’m guessing she would agree.

Dina, Dina, Dina ... Trust me when I tell you, smudging, sage, and beads is not the answer. If only life were that simple! Having said that, who am I to question what gives her peace of mind? If smoking out a bracelet brings Dina tranquility, then go for it!!! Whatever makes you happy! I tease her about this all of the time. One of these days I’m gonna get a face full of sage, I just know it!!! That wouldn’t be very Zen of her, would it? All kidding aside, she’s a tough cookie and finally realizes that sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do! WATCH AND SEE.

Dinner at Teresa’s was great! I could not believe all of the energy she had! It was like watching the Energizer Bunny, she just kept going, and going, and going! Joe was late getting home and the kids were exhausted, but it didn’t stop them from putting on multiple "shows" throughout the night. The food was great, and the company even better. Watching those kids is like looking at a real life cartoon. Their huge eyes and over the top outfits along with their larger than life personalities is never dull, trust me! As Teresa says, "Love, love, love them!"

The shopping scene with the girls was a little intense; thank God I only had one! It was like a feeding frenzy, snakeskin and zebra leggings everywhere!!! I don’t think Teresa allowed Gia to get all of those clothes. Good for her for putting the kibosh on it, the last thing you want is to start a pattern of overindulging, especially with a house full of girls!

Gia rocked the runway, as expected! I was so happy for Teresa; she was a very proud mommy. I still can’t get over how she looked, nine months pregnant, wearing a mini dress and five inch heals! Only Teresa...

 

I felt bad to see Christine get sick on the runway. I’m sure she was embarrassed, but truth be told, it’s very difficult to stand in one position for a long time. That coupled with nerves, and an empty stomach is all you need to have that type of reaction. It’s behind her now, I hope she’s moved forward and hasn’t looked back; it’s one of those things that she will probably laugh about down the road. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

I think I’ve covered everything. As always, thank you so much for watching, you are all appreciated more than you know!

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
