Caroline hopes that people can relate to the events of the show.

Hello again! It’s been a while. Sorry for not blogging last week, I was out of town. For those of you who watched, I hoped you enjoyed it!
 
I’m sitting here at my computer and I’m having a bit of a struggle trying to get my thoughts together. Within the past month parts of our nation have endured wild fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, devastating floods, and today marks the tenth anniversary of 9/11/01, a day that forever changed this country and continues to affect so many.
 
I want to share a story with you regarding a fan encounter that I had yesterday. I was doing an appearance in New Jersey with my husband, kids, and Jacqueline. A woman came up to me with a beautiful young girl by her side. I did the usual thank you for watching photo op, and the woman pulled me aside and started to cry. She began to explain to me that she had lost her husband in the Twin Towers on 9/11 and that the young girl beside her was her daughter. I looked over at the young girl and she had tears in her eyes. I guess she knew what her mom was telling me, and then she smiled. Her mom told me that meeting us was just the diversion she needed to make a very difficult day somewhat bearable for her daughter. She then thanked me and hugged me.

I just saw the reunion show on a re-run. I have to say I am shocked at the behavior the ladies had on ganging up on Tereasa. Despite what you think of someone, out of character you never stoop to a lower level. Caroline seems to be able to dish it out but can't take it. I can't believe I looked up to her. She is in no way for sure a role model. So dissapointed in her behavior I thought she was above it all. Shame on you.

Hi. I', 24 years old and live in Australia. I have a close relationship with my family and like all families, we have our ups and downs. I watch tv like most people and while I'm really not a fan of the Housewives series, I find myself watching the New Jersey seasons almost religiously. I don't care for the family issues with the Goga's vs Gudice etc or the Jacqueline daughter issues although I feel for everyone on the show..... I watch the show because of you Caroline.

I don't know you personally (i wish I did) and I know that the media can make a crazy person look normal or vice versa but I think you are amazing. You on the show is a humble, wise and pure hearted person. You say what you feel and lay down the truth but you say it with such class and compassion. The way you are with your husband and family is beautiful. Our close knit family is much the same and I see your heart in everything you say and do for your family. The tears you shed... I feel. (I cry over everything). I thought you should just know that the world needs a lot more people like you in the world. There truly wouldn't be so much hate and anger in the world towards eachother if people had your heart and soul.....

A now converted Caroline fan!!!

Hi, You and Albert remind me so much of my husband and I! I can't wait until we have kids and hope that we are as grounded and hopefully as you guys are. I love watching your show about your family. Thanks for sharing with the world. It's also nice to see that everything is not / has not been always perfect - as true to life. Tree

Caroline, I was getting ready this morning and couldn't get you off my mind. I will open with I am not a fan of the show, and have never offered my sentiments outside my own affairs. But, like many others, there are times I push the remote purposely sneaking a glimpse into your personal trials. Not to judge, but to see myself among your faults and strengths. I watched the last four seasons unfold as you sat together rehashing last season. I witnessed the strengths, and stamina ingrained in all of your spirits in the beginning season, caving into the "eye of humanity" relentlessly scrutinizing the delusions of fame. At our core, we are all genuine beings, no matter if we tempt the devil wth our pride every now and then. Having said that, and being the one shelling peanuts, tossing back a soda, I wondered if forgiveness was given a spot for the upcoming season. ;) Stay strong girl!

Theresa S I agree with you whole heartedly I am so glad that Caroline finally did admit what an absolute horror it was to be involved with teresa... Kathy and Melissa are adorable. My only hope is that teresa leaves the show. I can't stand to hear her talk or her famous phrase "ok bitch, is that better", and the way she pronounces her words is a complete disgrace. She loved trashing Danielle Staub how does that feel Teresa, how did you like that bitch......

Caroline: I just wanna say that I agree with you 100% regarding Teresa. What on earth happened to her? She became a complete monster this year. I love your dedication to family, particularly your children. Good Luck and hope to see u in future "Housewives" seasons.

Caroline-I think that you're great because you hold your own in the middle of a bunch of women who act like lunatics most of the time. As a mother you need to be protective of your children. When someone slams them, you have every right to stand up for your kids. As for Teresa, she needs to get some help with anger management. Her passive aggressive behavior is scary to watch. She can be calm one moment then over the top ballistic the next. Teresa is jealous of everyone and although she and her husband have gone through some tough times her previous spending habits bordered on addiction. So you lost your luggage full of accessories - get a life - that experience was so minor in the scheme of life but she acted like it was a major tragedy. Caroline, stay true to your ideals. I love hearing what you have to say. If you lose it once in a while so what? You're only human!

hi ms.caroline it's a shame what you,kathy,melissa did to teresa she has a lot in her plate.We know her husband did bad things but that should make you be closer to teresa. I have watch the show from day one never miss not one beat, but melissa,and kathy did get in the show only to destroy teresa and her daughters,and father, mother. joe teresa brother has never care about her even though she helped him to start his business, now that she needs him even more all he do laugh about his only sister even with everything she is going through. He has never care and never will, but his wife and his cousin will some day regret what they have done to teresa and your friendship and jac, all i can say becareful with melissa, and kathy these two are bad apples and you will see the light in the truth before you, also your own children turn on teresa ever since they started to hang with melissa, and her husband, i feel that if you really were friends with teresa somehow or some way you two can talk including jac and talk about everything look you have to see how both melissa,and her husband,and kathy and her husband talk about teresa. Joe teresa brother said that he really does care about his nieces no he does not when he can talk so bad in refernces to his sister. He think his wife is a saint i don't think so, and also he really does not care about his parent when he called his sister trash in front of his niece shame on them and shame on you. Teresa does care and loved all of your family very much, but i guess your family don't feel the same about her. Keep hanging with melissa, and kathy you will see the true light. Familys and special friend is forever. Teresa will need you more than melissa and her husband, and kathy and her husband will ever do. She even told jac that she try to call you in refer to what she was put in the book ,but you never called her back, teresa should have seen what was coming her way but she is not can of person because she trusted you all the way. and that guy that join the team he thinks he can trust melissa and her husband he too will see the true colors of them, i just hope jac does not turn her back on teresa to because that will be really shameful. ms. caroline please look at whole picture what these two women are trying to do to your friendship with teresa and her girls and parents.teresa doesn't need a cousin like kathy denying teresa father or mother as family like she did in the reunion that was wrong,but you do have sit down and think that melissa did have or has a friendship with daneille they is no doubt about that, she said she never met her i think that they are friends and you will found that out on your own. And you will regret what you did to teresa. So please think about it these two women came to the show for a reason so becareful with them. Are you willing to lose all conact with your own family because of these two women,melissa and kathy, i don't think so. i will be seeing the second part of the reunion this sunday watch what you say and what you hear. I hope you do not trash teresa together with melissa and kathy.

Was ok for your boys to bash, make fun of, and say whatever they wanted about Teresa, her husbands, kids, and life... But God forbid she mentions yours? I have loved u from the start... U have completely changed...u need to get off that high-horse, and take a dose of the reality pill.... Colums, blogs, radio shows.... Guess what ur not the be all end all... Sad as this is to say... Won't watch anything further that includes u, ur kids, or ur family.....DONE...UR A PHONY!!!!!!

REALLY?!? Where have these people been and which show were they watching? Teresa has consistently been so pathetically narcissistic and vindictive, it was appropriate for her to get her comeuppance. Caroline's strong feelings are also motivated by the rift Teresa caused between Caroline and her sister, Dina. Overall, Caroline has a far stronger character and value system than Teresa who tells so many lies that it's laughable and sad at the same time.

Caroline, I thought you were the sophisticated one on the show, but you proved me wrong. What you did to Teresa on the reunion show was beyond WRONG! I have lost all respect for you. You have rolled your eyes at Teresa and mad snide remarks all season long. Teresa NEVER did any of that to you. Watch the shows!!! The episode where Gia wrote a song for her Mom and Uncle Joe, your husband said "this is stupid". Really??? Here is a little girl who is hurting over the family fueds and Albert says 'stupid'. How uncaring of both of you!! Not to mention the fake Awwwwwwwww that came out of FAKE melissa's mouth. She is jealous of Teresa and the love her brother Joe has for her! Just wish Joe would wise up and see what a TRUE GOLDDIGGER she really is. Good luck with your sewer water! You're dispicable to say the least! YOU owe Teresa a BIG apology! No longer a fan of yours. Please leave the show, and take melissa with you!!!

Caroline, you're my favorite on the show. You seem from the show to be a very honest and stairght forward person. Which sometimes makes me wonder why you would sign on for a reality show to being with.Too much drama for a person like you. I will admit Teresa was also a favorite of mine but sorry to say after last seasons reunion and this whole season she is my least favorite. She may have money but she has zero class. Classy women do not carry on the way she does oh my gosh the language and the screaming! From what the show has shown Teresa seems to be very manipulative,decitful,and unstable and gives all Italians a bad name.They make us all look like a bunch of uneducated guidos. Teresa had the nerve to "dis" Jersy Shore. She makes Danielle (I can't believe I'm about to say this) look sane. On all the reunions you have always seen through the B.S. and many times exposed it and kept your cool. Unlike others who scream and shriek and knock down poor gay men. Also I want to make a point to anyone else that may read this. We as veiwers are only seeing snapshots of hours and hours of taping and since the majority of us don't live in Franklin Lakes we need to realize that after all the cameras are gone and things end up on the cutting room floor life still goes on for all these people that we will never get to see. We have no idea what goes on behind the scenes when no one is watching. So before anyone says well this isn't right or that isn't right just try to remind yourself that you are only seeing about 10 percent of what really goes on and most of that is "creative" editing.

Caroline,

You are the pot calling the kettle black!! You and your family have been talking smack behind teresa's back all season. Then you decide to get all high and mighty because she wouldn't wqnt her girls to work in a stripper car wash???? What planet do you live on?? Do you want Lauren working there??? WHY IS IT OK FOR YOU TO DO OR SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT TO ABOUT PEOPLE BUT NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO COMMENT ON YOU OR YOUR FAMILY??? GET over yourself! Teresa didn't say anything bad about Christopher, you used that as the impetous to go after Teresa because you are tired of her, PERIOD!

You say you were trying in the begining to help Teresa mend her family ties, are you qualified to do this considering you have no relationship with Dina???

Like I said POT BLACK!

Caroline, I have always been a HUGE fan of yours and 99% of the time, feel you are right on target and handle matters in the exact same way I would. I really belive that you took the comments Teresa made towards your children a little too hard. She never bashed Albie for not being able to fulfill his dreams of going to law school, never criticized your daughter for her weight issues, etc. I agree with garner687's comment that your sons and their roommate made not so nice comments about Teresa during filming and you never corrected them. How is that acting like family? I know you are hurt, but you really need to re-evaluate why your relationship with Melissa. Cathy I believe is good, and wants to be good, but Melissa and her sisters are under-handed and sneaky. Based on what was shown on Bravo, Teresa got the blame for ruining Melissa's son's baptism, however she did not seem to start it. As far as her relationship with her brother... there is truth that a daught in law can make or break a family. Let go of the hurt and be the person who always have been.. someone who likes what is right and just!

I don't care what anybody says! I think you're amazing and that Theresa has lost her mind! I think that fame has totally gone to her head and has changed her. Everytime I watch her now I just shake my head in shock at how she is now. You have always been honest, loyal & not afraid to call out the b.s. which I admire! Stay true to yourself and don't worry about the pathetic people! It's just another Danielle situation but a little closer to home.

I no longer like you, you are a jerk, bully, fake , and a liar! You overreacted to Theresa's book and her. You made fun of her behind her back at least your kids did. If she is a joke to you then don't pretend to be her friend and get mad at her for her being angry enough to make a few catty comments in a stupid book. She saw the shows and you guys behind her back. Her family reminds me of the two stupid step- sisters in Cinderella. You took pleasure in her financial misery. What's up with all the faces as well? What are you a clown? And anyone can look at you and tell you are not a full blooded Italian, and you know what who cares?

I figured Caroline out the first ten minutes of the first show of the first season. FINALLY!The truth is coming out about her. No doubt there will be those who will still buy her BRAND. They will believe that Teresa "inspired" Caroline to act snarky towards Melissa and Kathy without the benefit of knowing them first. Of course this would mean that the powerful and "wise" Caroline can be easily "inspired" (code word for influenced) to believe hearsay and one-sided opinions about people; and from the show's BRAINTRUST (Teresa) at that! I have one thing to say and that is, did they really let her have a radio talk show??????????? I mean, we all are wondering what's gonna happen now that Oprah is off the air, but really-Caroline Manzo as the new media moral compass for NJ, NY and maybe, the nation?????? If that's true then I want my fifteen minutes of fame as well. I have a very interesting group of friends who preach, posture, pose, and backstab on a regular basis. Some are housewives and some are notwives. We live and play in LA. We eat skinny food, drink skinny cocktails and wear skinny jeans and skinny jewelry. We are all capable of writing a "SKINNY"book. I've been working on my book "The Skinny Girl's Guide to Sarcasm", a skinny alternative to fat jokes, criticisms and books about skinny stuff.

Caroline, I know many people are changing their view about you but I have not. I still like you and will always. When I see you on T.V. I cant help but think of you like a mom. I love you and people cant say things about you or your family and expect you not to Stand Up! I would have done the same thing.

I think it has been so sad to watch what fame and money can do to a family. Obviously, this has brought out the worst in everyone, and everyone has changed drastically from the beginning of the show. I would re-consider if the fame and money is really worth it!! Praying for all of you!

I for one say "good for you" for the way you are finally standing up to Teresa..I have watched the show since it's beginning and am sad to see how money and power has gone to Teresa's head....she was once one of my favorites...not any more-just as countless others have said, watching the reunion show was very sad to see....but what I saw was a woman in blue who had to have the spotlight on herself and would admit to no wrongdoing whatsoever....I say "shame on you, Teresa" for throwing years of friendship away because of cookbooks that in my opinion were not that great...I'm not interested in looking at your photographs..I was looking for recipes-anyway, keep your heads held high Jacqueline, Caroline, Kathy and Melissa....hopefully in the end everything will work out ok....

Used to be a Caroline fan, but not anymore. Caroline, you acted so fake towards Melissa and Kathy on the reunion part I. I agree with one of the other comments about Theresa not being "normal" and you should know that she truly is not...but regardless, that doesn't mean she's an evil person like you are trying to portray her.

Caroline,

Ok so if I understand what you are saying is that you aren't mad about the comments in the book about you but about what she said about your boys. They are grown 20 something year olds (adult children) that have made fun of Teresa on the show...ok kettle. Stop treating them like kids and let them defend themselves! Teresa and her relationship with her sister and cousin if I was her friend would have never taken sides or got involved. You apparently still are and really show what side you are on instead of atleast staying mutual. It makes me wonder if your anger with Teresa is more of the fact she is closer to your sister than you are right now! We are all human and have feelings!

As you say....This to shall pass!

I love you, Caroline, but I didn't like Teresa that much from the start, the comments she and her husband would make, made me realize they thought they were entitled. PLEASE !! But I thought, if Caroline likes her, she has to have something good about her. But I couldn't make myself like her and it just got worse as time went on. She only cares how others view her and doesn't have that 'true love of family' chip planted in her brain. I love watching you and your family because it's our family with the same characteristics. (Except for the 'NJ language'.. ha ha) I had the same things going on in our family, two sons and a daughter that we are very proud of and we always say that we are their biggest cheerleaders. You've had the right idea about family and friends, and you will always succeed in your daily life. Teresa, on the other hand, is the biggest FAKE I have ever seen. She's crazy if she thinks that the public can't see her for what she is... F AAA KE. I LOVED Kathy and Melissa from the get-go. I didn't see them in a bad light at all. Melissa is a little stuck on herself, but look at her, she's gorgeous, she's only telling it like it is !! Her husband Joe, is absolutely the sweetest funniest guy, he and Melissa make the greatest couple and the cutest family. Kathy has the sweetest family, her children made me cry with their gift and words on Christmas and her husband shows how much he loves her. I LOVE THEM ALL !!! Keep doin' what you're doin', 'cause it WORKS ! LOVE YA !!!

Caroline: I admire you. You are definitely my rock. I watch NJHW as often as I can. I tape shows and then eventually catch up. I cannot associate our lives with your lives, as I pinch pennies to make ends meet. A yearly 4 day vacation 6 hours from home on Cape Cod with $700.00 to spend for room/board and entertainment is the best I can do. I wish that you should know I do not envy you, but ask that God continue to bless you and your family with good fortune. I am sorry that Teresa is such a back stabber. I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her. "Whatever" is her response whenever she is caught. I would strike her from my life ASAP if I were you. I have a sister-in-law who is just like her. A lying, coniving, using, sneaky piece of work. I hope to someday meet you in passing. Until then, may God Bless you and yours.

1. You need to take your own advice. 2. If it were Teresa that was a no show to the reunion, you would have told her she needed to put on her big girl panties and finish what you started. Why not Jacqueline? (And I'm Team Jaqueline, not Teresa) 3. All season you said the two families needed to make up and move on, so you at the reunion you decide to bust Teresa out on everything she has ever said to you about her family. And were these things said to you when it was the heat of the moment? 4. The funniest part of the reunion is when you decided to put your fingers in your ears and start humming... soooo classy! 5. The good thing for you is you have two new wanna be's in your corner now, we'll see how long they last in your "circle". Good luck to them!

I grew up in a Italian neighborhood and understand about loving large and fighting large. Also lived this drama,Teresa is a spoiled brat who needs to be #1 at all cost.She wanted to be asked if her family could be on the show AND THAT REALLY PISSED HER OFF when they didnt.After the display of bathing suits how could she say anything about your sons car wash idea. She is Old fashion ?Most mothers are not so quick to show off their bodys to the world in such a display over and over to others husbands and children. I find nothing old fashion about her.She loves the spot light and shares even her sex toys with us .Lucille Ball is rolling in her grave,Teresa is Not funny!She will never own what she has done not capable,also needs to learn to live within her income instead of her brothers.I think her cousin and sister in law are beautiful women inside and out.What a breath of fresh air! Hang in there! This turd cant float forever.

You and your family can dish it, but you certainly cannot take it! I read Tre's book, she didn't say anything that bad, when did you become so thin skinned? I don't want my daughter working at a car wash, let a lone a stripper car wash, would you like your daughter too?

Caroline, I hate that everything has turned so sour. I will continue to pray for all of you ladies and your families. I bet none of y'all thought that things would go this way when you signed up for this show. I think you all started the show thinking that it would be fun and I'm sure it was in the begining. I wish that the hands of time could be turned back for all of you. Oh well, just keep moving forward and know that this too shall pass and what doesn't kill us shall make us stronger. Love to you and your family

Shame on you Caroline. Why not just sit down and talk Tre? Wasn't that advice you've handed out to others? No? You'd rather trash someone on tv? And to suggest that Tre was never your friend but just an aquaintance is laughable! Not pretty C - not pretty at all.

I am not shocked that Teresa showed her true colors. I am a NJ Girl I lived in NJ all my life untill 2009, My husband and I moved to NC because he lost his job after having an accident on the job that caused him to have a heart attack. I never knew why people always slammed The New Jersey people, I always was made fun at how I talked or the big jersey hair we all use to wear. But when you leave the garden state and u move to a very very rural area and the people next door to you are cows and horses, you have to know your not in jersey anymore, and the people that you thought were your friends are not, they are people riding on your tale coat. Thats one thing that i learned about friends in NJ they come and go when it pleases them. All my friends Ive had in NJ are gone..... And the only people you have is you and your family.. People here in NC are very friendly don't get me wrong i do miss NJ but not the people at all....... I miss my oldest son Peter who is still in NJ God help him...... May he have better friends then I did or for that matter then Caroline...... I am so so sorry Caroline but like you said at least you now see teresa for what she really is!!!!!!!!

Wow the reunion was unreal. BUT not surprising, I saw teresas true colors long long ago. Classless, clueless, as thick as molasses and mean mean mean. She has so much jealousy, she is seeting, when you see her she looks like shes a pitbull ready to pounce. She has no business being on TV, but she DOES belong in a wrestling ring. She had no business making snide comments about you, your kids or anyone else in her 'book'. Gossip in a cookbook? Not cool. Stay away, far far away from her but I think you know that now.

garner687

Where have you been?? Pretty quiet blog for someone who seemingly has so much to say. I'm not even sure where to begin, so I'll just post a couple of thoughts. The first thing I have to say is you got really angry with Theresa for "attacking" your son about the stripper car wash, when they have been waaaaay more nasty about her (as have you), especially since Greg came into the picture. And you seem to be just fine with that. They used to be funny and slightly snarky, now they are straight up rude, mean, and unpleasant to watch. For the record, I totally agree with Theresa, I wouldn't want my daughter to work at a stripper car wash either. I haven't read her book, so I won't really comment on it, but from what I've heard, even if she was trying to stir the pot a little bit, honestly, her comments are fairly innocuous. Why are you letting this destroy a friendship? And I say friendship because it's seems like, until recently, you've really enjoyed Theresa's company. Second, Theresa is obviously not talking about you behind your back they way you all do to her, because Dina had no idea you two were fighting. Maybe you and Dina have been less than close due to other circumstances, since the issue had not been previously raised. Third, Kathy and Melissa have not been the angels you made them out to be during the reunion. They have been very backhandedly mean to Theresa, very proficient in giving a biting insult wrapped in an innocent comment. They are family and need to sort it out themselves. Maybe inserting yourself into the fight makes you more relavent, but it's not your business, remember?

Caroline, I liked you before, but now all I see from you is running around judging everyone but yourself. It appears that you are not a trust worthy person. You gather the goods and use it against them later. Shame on you. With a friend like that, know one could ever be open with their lives with friends. Your a joke.

Caroline, I really love you and your family. I just watched the reunion show. I am really disappointed with your behavior. Theresa has been your friend for a really long time maybe she has made mistakes. We all do. I really thought it was an awful thing for you to call Theresa out on private things she may have talked to you about. It hurt Theresa and the other by you repeating.

Some advice for you ...stay out of it..

Caroline- Your amazing. Finally, someone can stick it to T! She is so conceded its eating her up, its all about her, her kids, her husband, how much her husband makes and she's so envious to the point where she is thinking everyone is out to get her and be like her. And honestly, at P. Cana she was dressing up so she can show her clothes, body and style. She knew she looked good in everything or else she wouldn't have brought it with.

I say you went too far by ganging up on Theresa. You should have been a little classier. You repeated things that were said to you in private, even if it was filmed, it was a private moment.

The other girls have been very mean spirited toward T. from day one. If T. got fed up, it was her choice, her behavior was bad, but she has had a very tough year. Her defensive attitude was very understandable. Why did you give up on trying to understand her position? Were a few catty remarks worth you sinking to such a low level?

Caroline, I am so dissappointed in how you behaved at the reunion. It is so sad how you turned on Teresa. I don't understand your animosity toward her - is it just because of her comments in the cookbook? If so, it seems to me that the two of you could have discussed this 1:1. You had so much credibility for your good sense and good judgement, but you have lost that now because truly the sight of you turning on your former friend is ugly and sad. Your aligning yourself w/Kathy and Melissa seems superficial since you have known them for such a short time. You have no one to blame but yourself if you feel you were loyal to Teresa to a fault, yet you seem to be taking that out on Teresa. I have lost respect for you and I think you judgement in this instance is short sighted and poor.
