I enjoyed watching the scene at the Wakile’s. The kids crack me up, they’re miniatures of their parents! I give Kudos to Joseph for telling his parents the truth about drinking, he could have just as easily signed the paper and let them believe otherwise. Victoria is a beautiful young lady who has her head on straight; she had to fight a pretty big battle at such a young age and won. I love that she continues to raise awareness for brain disease, etc. Good for her!
So do you think Melissa can sing? I think we just got a tease and need to hear more, don’t you? I still can’t get over Antonia’s face as she watched her mom by the piano; it was too precious for words, what a gorgeous little girl.
I’m happy to see that Joe supports Melissa’s dream -- gold star for you on that one Joe Gorga!
I’m happy to see progress being made in the Gorga/Giudice feud. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Let’s think positive thoughts.
That’s about it for now, thank you so much for watching!
I absolutely adore you... You put a smile on my face, and laughter in my heart. (Golf is the dumbest sport, thank you so much for saying that out loud)...
You are a great voice of reason and I enjoy watching you weekly. I've also enjoyed reading your advice blog. I appreciate that you are authentic.
I agree and this time I really watched the show objectively, seeing the interaction of Kathy and her family gave me a different perspective, Melissa can sing but she killed "Amazing Grace"
Good luck with your advice show! I'd listen if it were available here in Iowa! oh, and you looked really pretty at the interview.
I seen you talking about misscarriages ...and lifes challenges and going on ..being a strong person ....me and my husband have been married 13 yrs....we had a miscarriage in 2001 and then in 2003 our Madison was born ...such a blessing !!!...but then jan 14th 2010 our lives changed FOREVER !! she passed away suddenly from Bacterial Meningitas ...i have tried to make more parents aware of this deadly disease !!......thank you for being an inspiration ...and a great mother ...we know we will see our babies in Heaven on day ....love the Rabun Family
Caroline, I love the positive attitude in your blogs and how supportive you are of all the children. RHONJ has so many amazing children, they are a joy to watch!
Caroline, You would definitely be great on the radio. We have always loved your no nonsense approach. You hold the line, you are loyal, and you take no prisoners....love it. You really have great advice, you have wonderful kids, your husband is supportive and you all have wonderful dinners. Dina was a favorite of ours as well, maybe now she will consider coming back to the show. We are happy to see and hear you every week the voice of reason. I felt for you when your boys let you know in their so kind way they were moving out. They are both adorable, my daughter and I just cant choose which one is our favorite. Good job Caroline, everyone needs a little dose of your guidance.
Caroline!!! I think your an amazing woman! You are so strong and very wise! I really respect how you handle yourself! And I love that you always speak your mind! I see how much you are struggling with your children moving out and I too hope you have some beautiful grandchildren soon! Nothing is like family! And you do family well!! Your a blessed girl!!
caroline i love ur way of thinking i think ur a wonderful mother and that u have raise ur kids really good take care god bless..
Hi~ I heard you were starting a blog about Motherhood! About giving advice and pointers. I am a Mom of 2 amazing boys, my oldest Sean 9, and Junior just turned 6. I come from an Italian family, whereas my Husband is Irish. I am a stay at home Mom, and my husband works about 80 hours a week. He is the Captain of our police dept. in Ct. He expects them to be boys but also expects them to be well behaved. And they are for the most part. You know the saying boys will be boys. But my question is, how do I keep my oldest from being so mean to me? I've tried everything from reverse physcology to saying, "I'm calling Daddy!", to just hugging him. He has a very good heart, and is very caring to his younger brother. It just seems as if we are so alike in our personalities that we sometimes clash. I've read books and tried different ways to approach him, but sometimes I yell, actually quite a bit. He says that's all I do. But I just want him to respect me! Of course he is an angel when Daddy is around, and my husband always backs me up, Thanks God! With summer coming and being out of school, I'm hoping it subsides a bit. Any advice you can give me,I would appreciate so much! Thanks~~
I love you Caroline, you are truly a pleasure to watch each week, I wish the new members of RHONJ would take some lessons from you. You are a class act!!!!
In the last 3 episodes you don't seem too happy. Is it the empty nest syndrome as you say, or all the crap thats going on with the show? Your smile seems fake as well as your happiness. Love your style just hope your not going to change like most housewives have because of the camera's.
I love you Caroline. I am a Jersey girl living in Florida and you are my husbands favorite house-wife! We love your gorgeous home and beautiful family. Your children are amazing and you and Albert's relationship is so refreshing and almost mentoring for my husband and I. My baby is going off to kindergarden this August so naturally I can understand to an extent how you must feel about your babies..moving out. Stay strong and visit often :) You look exactly like my aunt Roseann and you share the same qualities. Watching you reminds me of my family and home. I always enjoyed Dina as well. My heart broke for her and your family due to the heartbreak Danielle caused you all in season 1. I hope Dina is doing well, Im sure she is :) I don't know if you read these or not but I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy, respect, and look up to you. You are a wonderful woman and I would love to see The Brownstone the next time I come home. I wish you and your family nothing but luck, love, and happiness in all your future endeavors!
Lauren & John Benning from Daytona Beach originally from Lambertville, New Jersey (Hunterdon County)...20 minuetes from that Jersey 101.5 radio station in beautiful Trenton!! :)
Hello Caroline! I wanted to say good luck on your talk show on the radio! Albert is great on how he supports you as all husbands should... either way, I enjoy watching segments of you and your family; that is what you call reality!!
Have a good day!
I think your husband is a wonderful man anda you are blessed to have him. So many men nowadays take for granted what they have and look for fulfillment in thier lives in every other place then where he needs to...in his wife and family... What an amazing role model he is for many men out there! I was almost in tears seeing him cheer you on and support you the way a husband should. WOW!
Hi Caroline, I have to say that I have become disillusioned with you this year as the stellar model of sensibility. I think the clips of you conversing so harshly with Kathy and Theresa has put you in a light of being rude. This is not a characteristic that I would consider helpful when trying to mend fences with others.
Caroline, I thought it was cute seeing you with your husband...It is so hard on the mom's when the kids leave. I was laughing at Jay's blog about your kids being in their mid 20's but he is a man and sometimes they just don't get it, no matter how old your keds are when they leave home whether it's down the street or hundreds of miles away it's not the same and it's sad seeing your babies go especially when you know they most likely will not live under your roof again.
Be proud of yourself though you and your husband have done an amazing job. Take Care
Caroline, I too have 3 kids and had 3 miscarriages. It's a very hard thing to experience once let alone multiple times. Because of the miscarriages, there's 9 1/2 years between my oldest (daughter) and my youngest (son). I remember thinking "what have I done" ....when my oldest would do something to raise my blood pressure I automatically thought, how am I going to handle this with my youngest when he's her age and I'm 10 years older!!! Now, my oldest is 21 and I thank God every day that I still have an 11 year old at home. I can't imagine how you feel with all of them leaving so close together. I know Lauren is still living at home but I'm sure between work and being with Vito, it's not the same as when she was in school. On one hand I wish my kids were closer in age so they had more in common, but on the other hand, I'm so happy to still have my little guy who 'needs' me.
For such a religious person that Melissa says she is, how can one not know the words to Amazing Grace, one of the best known hymns of all time - wench????
Caroline, I so feel your pain regarding the "empty nest syndrome". My son (now 23) left home at 18 and moved to Florida to work in his fathers business (we are divorced) and my daughter (now 20) left at 18 to go to college, also in Florida. I thought sometimes that I would die without them, but I didn't and I never tried to make them responsible for Mom's happiness. It's really hard on Holidays to be away from them, but I hope that one day, they will return home and we'll be together again. It's so hard though, because up until that point I knew, when they ate, what they ate, how long they'd been up, who they were with, etc. and then they just leave and there I was with nothing to do. I do work full-time, but I just found myself walking around the house wondering where everyone was. I have learned to love my independence and you will too, I'm sure of it.
Caroline,God love you !!! I think you are the only SANE woman on that show,although I do love the whole bunch of you...bye the way I am glad that Danielle went elsewhere I must say!I enjoy the shows.Keep it up ladies!
Melissa was a wonderful voice but could she please learn the words to Amazing Grace? Good Grief.... otherwise.. Caroline love your views always I just hope someone supports Teresa, just needs it.
OMG!!! Caroline, I bought the Brownstone sauce at Oakland NJ Shoprite yesterday!!! I can't wait to try it!!!
LOVE you girl!!! My cousin saw you in Stop and Shop a few months ago. She said you were SO GRACIOUS and took a pic with her kids.
You're the best of the best.....love your kids, your philosphy, your husbands love for you and you're looking smokin' hot this year, for sure! Now can you do something with Ashley & Melissa and get Kathy back on track, I think she's worth it, just my two cents.
Caroline, I really wish you could be honest about Melissa attitude on last episode and her singing. Honesty, please. LOL
Caroline, You ARE beautiful! You are sharp and classy looking, Al does not need glasses! :-) Hang in there, the empty nest blues do go away...another transition in life...and soon you will begin to experience the positive aspects of the empty nest. I love the show, I relate to you the most and love your attitude.
When I watch you talk about the empty nest syndrome, I cry right along with you. I was in a deep depression when my oldest daughter moved out, and when the younger one moved out, I could not go inside. I sat in the garage for over an hour and cried and cried. Then one day it dawned on me: I can still call them, I can still go see them. They are still "here" I know so many people who have lost their children, that puts it in perspective. It really helped me. Now, I focus on my husband of 30yrs ( also a golfer, and I HATE golf! ) we do things just the two of us now. It is so different than being "needed", to be able to just have some fun! It does get better~
LOVE LOVE LOVE you Caroline. I find it amazing and so beautiful the way your family is so close and loving as well as supportive of one another. I know you will make a great host in your future radio endeavors. You will provide others with truth, values and great advice. All the best to you in your life/ new career. I absolutely love the relationship between you and your husband. You are very blessed to have his genuine love and support and he is lucky to have you. Your family is the hands down best tv show family I have seen on reality tv shows in a long time. All the best to you and your family. Keep being the amazing woman you are and who we all have grown to love.
caroline you are the greatest thing since sliced bread. The other women need to common sense and a voice of reason liike you have maybe the wouldnt have so many problems...god bless you a nd keep up the good work.
Good luck with your new job on the radio! I have the empty nest syndrome, also:( I try to enjoy my husband's hobbies-and usually take a book, too! LOL! Very nice for you to have an encouraging and supportive husband! PS Always love your blogs!
Jacqueline tell Chris how you feel about the car!!! I love you and Caroline to death and Caroline I hope you can take the blog to the next level!!!! :-)
Caroline, your brother Chris seems like a very gentle and caring person, but what on earth possessed him to buy Ashley a brand new Jeep (thousands and thousands of dollars) and expect her to make monthly payments when she doesn't even have a job. Ashley is coming across more and more like a spoiled brat who just expects to get anything she wants (and does). As for Meliisa's singing - the review is out on this one. Would be nice for a singer to know the words especially to such a well known hymn as "Amazing Grace", Your children are a blessing and so well grounded. God bless.
Caroline, Things will get better. The boys will be back and forth like they never left after the apartment novelty wears off. Someday when the grandchildren arrive it is a whole other blessing, then you will love it when they leave at the end of the day. lol. I'm with you on the Ashlee car situation, that girl need a swift kick in the butt, she has such an attitude that everything is owed to her. Hang in there, brighter days are coming for you.
Caroline - aren't you the lucky one??? One phone call and just like that you get an interview for a radio show. If you weren't on Housewives, do you think they would have even spoken to you???
Caroline...I LOVE YOU!!! You have been my favorite from the beginning. I do miss Dina though and wish her well. I am Italian and there are several of my family members that you remind me of. You are very real and honest. I love to watch you with your husband and kids. The love is VERY obvious! I wish you luck with your advice show, I think you are perfect for that!
