I was happy to see the Gorga and Giudice kids get together for a play date. Say what you want, these kids love each other, choke-holds and all. It's sad to think their relationship may suffer as a result of this feud.
What hate train? Teresa doesn't have a close relationship with her cousin and is not interested in one now, just because the cameras are rolling. That is a totally reasonable mindset. I still haven't seen all this "hate" you keep referring to from Teresa. Mildly irritated, sure, but most people would be at having someone who has been trashing for years invited to a party. At least Teresa didn't take it upon herself to throw someone out of another person's party.
I used to like you. Now, you've become tiresome with all of your unasked-for advice. Get a new storyline and stop living off of Teresa's.
You and your husband have known Kathy for 20 years and yet never invited them to one of your New Year's Eve parties and yet now you are worried that your husband might get upset because they are his clients?! Just cuz you have no problems with them you figure you might as well invite them even though Teresa will obviously be upset. No one is asking you to get on the hate train but by not inviting them is not getting on the hate train. Danielle had done nothing to Teresa initially yet she still had your back when you just wanted to hate on Danielle. You really are a piece of work yourself and a disloyal friend. Let Teresa make the call of when she wants to make up with Kathy- that's her choice. Not yours.
Caroline - how lucky your friends are to be invited to the Brownstone for New Year's Eve. Everyone seemed to be having a good time, although I think Richie and Joe Giudice had a bit too much to drink. Teresa is getting to be a real mean lady. I hope Bravo isn't scripting her to be the new Danielle.
OMG Really Teresa, do you have any idea how bad you are looking this year? Melissa and Joe are just like you and Joe were several seasons ago. While I feel bad you are having money problems why would I buy you cookbook? If you want to be liked and respected as a business woman take Carolines lead! I would buy a cookbook from her in a hot second.......
Caroline, Caroline, Caroline...Your friend Teresa needs a reality check. She acts like a high school kid.
Caroline- I just love you!! You are a loving mother and wife, you are not afraid of hard work, and to tell people exactly what you're thinking!! You give great, direct advice. Brava to you!
You are truly amazing, so lovely, kind, gentle, firm, what a wonderful person you are. The party looked so beautiful and what a sin to have people arguing, name calling, back stabbing, maybe the Guid-i-chays should have made the choice to stay home where they could freely speak poorly about their family and friends without bringing everyone down.
You and Albert, very smart cookies, appear to be awesome parents, you should be very proud of who you are.
Caroline, enough. You're getting downright nasty the way you mimic Teresa. Spill the beans about the real reason you resent her -- you obviously are just dying to tell us, just like against Dina's wishes, you clued us in during that first reunion show, that you had a big reason to hate Danielle. Just stop the childish antics and innuendos -- by the way you're also getting insufferably snobbish, even about who Albie should marry, another "child of privilege" in your words.
Caroline, Once again the voice of reason. Watching you handle people is always a joy to behold! Sometime I see the steam coming out of your ears but you reign that in and try to bring sanity to the situation. You must be realllly frustrated with Teresa as she does not want to let go of her grudge. Melissa looks much more forgiving and is trying to make things work and Teresa never gives an inch.
Bravo Caroline, you are truly a good person with a good heart, I'm with you on the whole hate train....come on people enough is enough, life is too short for all of this nonsense......if you have nothing nice to say to each other, then keep your mouth shut.....Thank you Caroline for being a good influence to those around you, and if they dont' wise up then it's not because you didn't try.....
Caroline, it looked like the party was a blast. I'm glad you invited the Wakile's to bring in the New Year. I just wish that you and Jacqueline would just get it over with and really give it to Teresa and her negative attitude and blaming everyone for her own faults....from the look on your face and Jacqueline, it seems as though you know Teresa is completely wrong on how she is behaving. I realize that you don't want to rock the boat but in your own words, "Friends tell you how it is". Be a friend....TELL HER AND SET HER STRAIGHT!
caroline i love u so much u r like the peace maker and ur a great wife and mother thank you for the inspiration
You are an awesome friend to Teresa! Not. Why have you never encouraged a one on one meeting with Teresa and her cousin?
Caroline, you are greatly known for your kind heart and love for your family. You have shown your viewers how level minded you are, the voice of reason. I am concerned you are being drawn into some of the drama, and making decisions that are a direct result of unhealthy actions. I am concerned for you, inviting Teresa's family to your event is simply just rude. You don't need to be friends with her family. Your decision to invite Kathy to New Years was mean and pot stirring. Business or not you don't do that to a friend. You chose not to friend Kim G and that directly affected your son. you made the right choice with that circumstance, but not this one. Time for a true to yourself "Caroline check". Good Luck!
Hi, don't get on the hate train.But look at Kathy she talks and bashes Tersea nonstop.You really think thats a good person?Or that T should trust her.
Your husband did the sweetes thing a man can do. Tell him I said great job. Hint to the men in the world.
Gloss over it any way you want to Caroline, but think back to season one... You expected Jaqueline to to support you and not be friends with Danelle period, no exception. You even said "you hang out with garbage, and you start to smell like garbage". Do you remember that??? And yet you don't support Teresa when it comes to Kathy and Melissa all the crap that they throw out there about her. You are suppose to be a friend and support Teresa. With everything that she is going through with the Bankruptcy and all the court cases (yes it is their fault, but people do make mistakes) you should be there for a friend, look at her face, you can see the the stress. Yet, you are going to side with both of the Jealous social climbers that are only here to create drama and trash Teresa. And then invite them to the Brownstone for New Years party (because you say that they are customers, yet they haven't been invited before? Hmm)Wow nice friend you turned out to be!
Kudos to you for inviting all of whom you did to YOUR party. Whatever is happening with Teresa and her family is between them. Has nothing to do with you and if Teresa questions your loyalties then she doesn't know you at all. You don't roll that way now or ever. It's sad that she can't get out of her own way in this situation with her brother....it's only pushing him father away.
funny how danielle staub twittered melissa last night during wwhl with andy cohen about facebook emails melissa sent danielle with all teresa's financial problems asking her to be on the show and film with her......THAT WAS WRONG!! do you now feel bad judging teresa shw knew there was a reason melissa and kathy were jealous of her and her show and now it has been proven..you need to apologize to teresa and let kathy and melissa have it since that is not very family like of melissa/kathy now is it!!!!! BUSTED!!!! they were hanging with your enemy danielle...just sayn
Why are you & Jaqueline so afraid of Teresa?! Seems to me that you're both afraid to speak the truth to her and tell her what a defensive, angry B she's being! You say it in the talking-head interviews, but you walk on eggshells around her. I thought you spoke your peace and didn't BS? If you can't be honest with your "friend" then perhaps you're not really friends. Personally, I think you're better off without her.
Good for you Caroline, you are always the voice of reason and you act like an adult! The other's should all take notes and maybe learn something from you.
Who asked you to get on the Hate Train?
Didn't see that in any episode, so why make it up? Can't stand to see the way you are now making fun of Teresa, very childish and classless thing to do.
Also, can't stand the way you are now sucking up to Kathy and Melissa. You change sides very quickly when it suits you. How long will it take before you switch sides again?
Thank you for always being the voice of reason. Also, congratulations to you on doing such a great job raising your children. It is very obvious they all have good heads on their shoulders and truly understand the meaning of family. My goal as a mother of 2 young boys is to raise them with that same sense of family, hardwork, respect and love. You and your family are truly an inspiration.
Caroline I am so disappointed with you this season. Your unloyalty to Teresa and meddling in her family affairs is so tasteless. I really am surprised that this is you- or else you had us all fooled the first two seasons?
Caroline, as far as Kathy, you invited her for the show. You kick an old lady out of a party that is not yours for no reason. She did nothing to you or your loud abrasive family(kim G.). I watch your castmates roll eyes and walk away when you start your ridiculous lectures.
Love, love, love you Carolyn!! You are the glue that holds everyone together. I just had twin boys in June and hope that I can build a family that respects and love one another like your family does. You should write a book.
You are amazing, and down to earth! You are so talented and wise. I just wish Teresa would take your advice. xoxo
Great New Year's party!! I thought it was gracious of you to invite Kathy and her family. Teresa needs to grow up and stop being so petty. Her ugly side is coming out during this season. You are great on the show and I love you!
If Teresa hasn't done anything bad to you than why are you chosing sides. It's obvious you don't like Teresa. It's sad that your trying to force her to befriend two people who make it clear they DO NOT LIKE TERESA. Just because they are family isn't a good enough reason to force this situation. Please back off, and mind your own business.
I have tons of respect for what your daughter Lauren is doing with her business, and was very nice of her to hire Ashley. . .Love that Lauren set her straight. . .good luck to her, you raised truly wonderful and amazing children!
Caroline, i am just wondering when all of you women on the show are going to wake up and realize that Teresa is the trouble maker. She has become this season's Danielle. Her and her husband are two of the most low class people on the show. I really thought you were a better judge of people. Wake up and smell the coffee when it comes to the Guidice's.
Caroline don't listen to the other mean bloggers about you not supporting Teresa.. You're being true to yourself and the situation... You're staying out of it, yet being honest when asked. Unless Bravo edited the scenes a certain way, it appears that Teresa is being very immature, jealous and mean...extremely caddy too. cold soul..even if I have been hurt by someone. I would never be malicious..
Oh Caroline, Caroline, CAROLINE!!!
Where to begin....while I understand you're "older" (what? 50???? Sheesh..same age as me! Quit trying to be the matriarch!! You're YOUNG!) , stop being the meddler. If someone has a concern, they'll come to you IF they want your advice. Otherwise, ZIP IT, honey!!! And I say that with LOVE!!!
Next...who ever told you your hair looks good all greased back needs a HUGE smack upside the head! You've got gorgeous hair. Dont' F--K with it!!!
Third---love you, love your relationship w/your husband and kids. Reminds me of my home and family.
Caroline, I have always loved watching you in the past, but this year is a different story. I know there are a TON of people that ask for your advice, but that doesn't mean that everyone wants it. I know that being a good friend is giving your opinion sometimes on the situation regardless if your friend wants to hear it or not, but you do it once ESPECIALLY if you know they obviously free very strongly about it. If you were a real friend to Teresa then you would back her up even if she is being outrageous. Let's face it, outrageous = Teresa & I know that's I love about her & from past seasons it seems that you did too. If she isn't ready for a relationship w/ Kathy then that is Teresa's business, end of story. I'm not sure why everyone keeps pushing it & getting involved. It comes across as "stirring the pot". Also, the whole line about inviting Kathy & her husband because they're customs was total b/s. Customers for 20 years & THIS is when you decide to extend the invitation?? Teresa & Joe have their opinions about other people & no they're not nice, but Kathy & Richie & Melissa & Joe have made their opinions clear as well, once again not nice, but no one talks about that. Wow, this longer then I wanted it to be. I swear I don't hate you! Love, love, love your family, especially gorgeous Lauren!
You can tell Teresa is not herself this season. I am sure she has so much on her mind and she should be able to count on her friends. I can not believe that you invited Kathy to your New Years Eve Party. Even more so I can't believe that Kathy showed up! What is wrong with you people. Teresa is your friend and you should let her work out her family problems herself. You always meddle and are always involved in the "drama". If Kathy was not at the party then there would be no drama and you wouldnt have anything to write about. You always think you are right on everything. Used to love you and look up to you but now I feel sorry for you. Who needs enemys when your friends keep stabbing you!!
Caroline, How could you put business before a friend by inviting Kathy and her family to the New Years Eve Party. Do you invite them every year or just this year. I think it was disloyal to Teresa.
I agree with half of the comments here because all these kudos of being 'The Voice ofReason' is getting into your head and filling it with Airbubbles. You make up the rules as you go along to excuse whatever you think suits you. Look, why do we guys sympathized with Teresa? She's mooching us to sell her cookbook so she can spent for fabulous things, on our expense? Come on you guys. The Jersey ladies live in big houses, celebrate the Holidays with all the trimmings, wear jewelries and fur coats to just buy turkey. What do they care about any of us. This is ridiculous!!!!!!
