A Lifetime of Love and Happiness

Caroline believes people should be able to love whoever their heart tells them to.

Hello again! Happy Sunday! Happy Wedding day!

I hope you enjoyed watching Jaime and Rich’s wedding. I joke that Jaime and Rich have been together for nearly 14 years and they decided to throw a shotgun wedding, surprising us all. I’m amazed at how beautiful it was, considering it was planned and orchestrated within one month’s time. From the horse-drawn carriage to the ceremony and party afterwards, it was pure perfection. It was an incredible event filled with lots of good food, love, and laughter.

My only regret is that the rest of my family couldn’t attend. As I said earlier, this was an event pulled together in less than a month’s time. Please don’t read too much into why members were missing. The simple truth is that life gets in the way. Some were working, some were vacationing, some had babysitting issues, so on and so on. They were missed and there in spirit, not to mention the constant texting of photos and updates kept them in the loop minute by minute. Jaime and Rich are two men that have committed themselves to each other over the past 13 years and have built a loving home and life together in spite of the fact that their relationship isn’t recognized in the eyes of so many in today’s society. Good for them, I applaud their courage and I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness. They deserve it.

My hope is that tonight’s episode showed the world that love comes in all different shapes, sizes, and colors. The heart feels what the heart feels, and no one should be denied the simple right to love who their heart tells them to.

I’d like to thank Bravo for putting both Jaime and Rosie’s story out there. Sometimes it’s easier to be politically correct and turn your head to hot button issues rather than address them head on. I respect them for showing their individual journeys with the heartfelt dignity and respect they deserve. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

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
