Caroline stands by what she said at the reunion and explains her side.

I also would like to point out that I have never, ever, found anything funny or satisfying regarding the divide between Teresa and her brother. Despite all the rumors circulated about Dina and me, I remained completely silent, making not one single remark. Many of you confuse my silence on Twitter, Facebook, and in the media as guilt. Quite the opposite, it's a matter of self-respect. Why sensationalize the situation? I'm only writing this now, because I believe as viewers you deserve some answers, I will never speak of this again, as it is a private matter that will take time and love to heal, but mark my words, this too shall pass. Promise, mom, PROMISE!

Teresa may think she hurt me, but what she doesn't understand is that she can never hurt me, because I take into account where it's coming from. Unlike you, Teresa, I can look in the mirror and hold my head high knowing that I have always given the best of myself to my family and friends. I live my life with integrity and self-respect.

PS: I hated writing this blog, it wasn't supposed to end this way. But it is what it is.
