Well I have to pack now, I’m going to Los Angeles for a couple of days with Lauren. It’s 3pm and the car is coming at 4 -- I still haven’t packed and have no clue what I’m bringing. Nothing like a little pressure!
See you next week, guys! Thanks for watching!
Caroline, I agree with you on the issue that, at 25, one should be saving money rather than settling down. It seems as though everyone around me is busy getting married and starting their families, while, at 25, I am focused solely on working and saving money for law school. I believe that your 20's are for working hard and establishing yourself and your 30's are for starting a family. You and your husband do a great job raising your kids - keep up the great work!
You are strong and you don't take any crap from anyone. One of your best qualities is that you can see a snake in the grass from miles away. It's amazing because you're always right! Your killer instincts are on point. You have raised a wonderful family. You are blessed.

There you were Caroline, off to the Bethenny show this week to attack Teresa's character. You were saying how the viewers are attacking each other, and you don't care about people attacking YOU, but you don't like us attacking each other. Nice try. There's no fans attacking each other here, unless you mean the same 5 or 6 viewers that are outnumbered by the masses who post here. What we do see is the HUGE, OVERWHLEMING majority agreeing with Teresa and bashing YOU jealous woman who were so mad at Teresa's success with this show that was translated to her PRODUCTS, while BLK water couldn't get of the ground that you stewed, and stewed, and spinned yourself into a rage! I imagine what must have gone through your head on that plane ride from NJ to Los Angeles, enjoying the fact that you were about to go on a talk show to attack Teresa without her there! Fans aren't fighting each other Caroline, we're telling YOU how much you are loeathed for what you put Teresa through. And while you were on the Bethenny show spewing hate at Teresa, the thing you SAID you were saddened to see, Teresa was rising above you and saying nothing but positive things and leading her fabulous life. As oppsed to YOU who was plotting and planning on the airplane ride, exactly what you would say to manipulate the audience against Teresa. A usual, it was disgusting and you attacked her character. The other viewer was right- what grown Mother does that to another Mother? Teresa doesn't. She has more character in her pinky, then you do in your whole family of "thieves." By doing that on The Bethenny show, you wiped out the excuse you planned on for the reunion show--- that Teresa is "clinging to the past" What "past?" It's her present! You attacked her last week! Geez, iIf everyone goes out and buys a case of BLK water, will you and Jaqueline leave her alone for a week? Cuz THAT'S what this is all about.
LisLwr Seems like you take this a little too seriously. Just reading all this rant seems a lil unhealthy over some show and people you never met.
Point taken "Melaniesaywhat" and you may just be correct but it's been very hard to watch that woman (Caroline) bully and try and wreck Teresa's life and livelihood, just because Teresa had the audacity to succeed where Caroline failed. I didn't mean to sound so much as "ranting" as to be stating the obvious. It's hard to watch Caroline go on these National shows and state absolute lies, when the audience knows full well what the story is. Is it unhealthy? Maybe, but we viewers have become very emotionally connected to this show and to Teresa because we see exactly what Melissa and Kathy were trying to do, and spingboard that with Caroline and Jacqiueline jumping on because all of them had this common goal to have Teresa fail because they couldn't do what she was accompliching with the viewers, I WILL say, it's been very "healthy" as opposed to "unhealthy" to see the overwhleming majority feel vindicated with this new system.The jig is up, and all Caroline is doing by marching around on talk shows saying stop the hate, and then the next breath spreading the hate, is showing us exactly why we will never support what her family does. I think it's more unhealthy to stand by silent, and watch a woman destroy another person out of greed. That is unhealthy.
What i will say Melaniesaywhat is this: I have always been a fan of caroline and jaqueline. Not teresa. Sure she was funny but i didn't feel sorry for her with all of her $$ problems. They did it to themselves but what does make me sick is how the last 2 seasons. Caroline and jaqueline has carried themselves as bullies. We have kids getting bullied everyday and we are surprised when some kid attacks someone but they are just learning from us. I think Caroline is jealous of teresa having so much success. She should just be happy with her life (she has a great one) Melissa and cathy did go behind a cousin's back to get on the show. I am disappointed that bravo would put them on. KNOWING there were so many problems already. (anything for a buck i guess) Now everyone is going after teresa and it seems for the same things they themselves are doing. She makes a stupid commit and it's horrible. anyone says something and it's just a joke. I truely hope they make some huge changes to the show and since melissa and cathy went dirty to get on the show. There were no problems before them. I hope they start there. I don't know how caroline or jaqueline could return.They seem so unhappy and if Caroline really cares. She should just leave but i think she likes being on tv too much and all the perks that come along with it. I can't believe my FAVORITE show is now just something i feel like i need to finish (the season) :( I just don't enjoy seeing everyone gang up on one person and clearly Teresa is not the only person that is responible for the family problems. Caroline and jaqueline should just stay out of it.
you know many successful people have declared bankrupcy, Donald Trump for example.
Although the two aren't worthy of comparison you are correct in that successful people have filed for bankruptcy.
LisLwr Im sorry but this is a bit much. There are way more than 6 people who agree with Caroline and Jacqueline over Teresa. Also I never had a problem with Teresa! I loved her! Then all these conflicting stories and lies just got way out of control. You speak of personal vendettas but it seems that Teresa has the same for most of the Housewives especially Melissa. She makes the most snide comments and when she argues she makes no sense what so ever.
As for bashing BLK that is just wrong. She is a mother and her sons are trying hard to get something off the ground. Making fun of a business venture just because she is their mother is beyond childish. No matter how much I dislike Teresa now I would never attack her cook books! May she have all the success in the world. BLK tastes amazing by the way and I actually do drink it. Making fun of people with dreams and trying to make them happen is never right! I wish the offered it in stores like Wholefoods that way it would be much more easily accessible.
Last but no least I am not saying that Caroline and Jac are 100% right but they are not the only ones that find Teresa to be hard to deal with. The other Housewives do as well and they are family!
I just feel that you should judge a persons personal ventures the way you just did. And although you may reply and attack me I still wish you the best on all that you may be trying to accomplish in your life and if your dreams have already come try then congratulations and may everything continue to be amazing!!
Caroline - I love, love, love you and Jacqueline! You are both so awesome-and you totally seem like people I would be friends with. I think it great how you are standing up to Teresa and when she talks all her garbage and tries to make everything everyone elses fault you just say NO! You dont take that on at all! That is the only way to deal with her! If all of you would do that I think Teresa would finally start to behave better!
Now that the viewers are reading between the lines, I don't think many of us are reading what you thought we were reading. And whats up with all these hormonal excuses? Menopause, pregnancy and post pregnancy issues. Most of your viewers I would guess are women and we are not buying it!!! Oh isn't that blame shifting?
valgal62 Thank you for that comment!!! I thought it was me, but these hormonal excuses are putting women's equality back about a hundred years. Well maybe only fifty, but it is ticking me off. I am 57, and have been through all of these scenarios, and NEVER acted like these women.
Caroline, I just have one question for you, can I have a dinner invite? I'll settle for just being able to cook with you. Your dinner spreads are amazing! Give it some consideration. :-)
Caroline...please do me and bravo and yourself a favor AND COME BACK TO RHNJ next season:) i absolutely adore you, and feel as though you always give those around you the best advice:) i love your family... especially CHRIS:) He is the sweetest, funniest , and most adorable guy on tv.. and i have the BIGGEST crush on him. Nice work Mr. and Mrs. Manzo!!! oh and PS... i have so much respect for Lauren... as she sets a strong and confident role model for all the young women watching.Your entire family is not only beautiful on the outside...but the inside as well :) MUAH!
Absolutely! One thing we can always use to measure the stability of a parent is the children. How do they act? Do they get along? Do they respect their parents? A resounding "Yes," in Caroline's case. The lady has done a lot of things right. Another great example of good parenting is Kathy.
AMEN Annie! All that glitters is not gold, in fact Caroline's entire problem is green! Envy...Look how she was willing to get rid of Albies girlfriend if she dared to stand in the way of BLK H20--it sure makes sense now as to why she was so ENRAGED that Teresa struck gold with the viewers while her family as flailing with us. It all makes sense now.
Um, pretty sure (to me) that has got to be the most innacurate blog that I've ever read. In fact, I'm almost dumbstruck. I think Caroline with the help of Dina's perspective, and watching what she has done to Teresa out of a jealous RAGE, has exposed to ALL of us (except apparently you, respectfully said) exactly who Caroline Manzo is. And that is a bitter, jealous woman who is so desperate for BLK h20 to work, that she maligned Teresa and her husband and girls on NATIONAL TV, and in any outlet that will HAVE her simply because Teresa found the success Caroline wanted to, and to make matters worse, Teresa did it organically, meaning we led her to the cookbooks. Caroline and Jacqueline sunk EVERYTHING into Blk water, and hers and Jacqueline's actions ALONE, have secured its demise. While I agree her family is beautiful on the outside, I believe she is molding them all to be what she is- seemingly strong on the outside with opinions, but dangerous, mean and petty on the inside with insecurities,,,and absolutely without mercy or care as to who she hurts to get what she wants.
What did Teresa actually say to your family (not just Dina I guess) to poison them against you and why would they believe it? If Lauren had a hard time with her brothers moving in with Greg and starting a separate life, she better be prepared for sisters-in-law to eventually become their first priority. If you allow it, of course. Girlfriends are easy to get along with, she's right, there's no reason for her to be jealous. Hopefully, she'll feel that way, when their wives have a big say and a greater influence (along with their mothers-in-law).She seemed to feel people thought she was inferior to them when she was heavier.She seems like a bright girl,especially when she got fed up with the drama and seeing Melissa and Kathy huddled in a corner. Maybe she has a better instinct about them than you do. You accepted that your husband constantly worked and you were alone alot. Maybe Albie has different priorities and a more balanced life and relationship. Hope you allow that.
Caroline, please do me, Bravo and yourself a favor and DO NOT COME BACK TO RHNJ next season! You need to go away and just be angry all by yourself!
It is very obvious that you control your children, or try to...Why do you own 51% (controlling interest) of the store you "share" with Lauren? I thought this was her dream? When did it become yours? How many hours do you work their per week. If you were just an investor no problem. But you are her mother and I'm sorry, as a mom of four children myself, two of whom are adults, I'll tell you your'e wrong.You are supposed to support her dream...Not own it.And she was correct, CafeFace is a horrible name...sounds like Cat Face...
I see it as it's an investment for her and she just wants to make sure it succeeds. As for Lauren's dream, if she's wanting to open it up before she has enough money then she needed a partner. She's still young, her Mother has been around a while longer than her and would know a lot more about business than her. I have four children myself and I know that I would be doing the exact same thing as Caroline is..you never want to set your kids up for failure only success. If Lauren truly didn't want her Mother's imput then she can always go and work for someone else until she's financial enough to do it on her own.
rebecca_959804I don't think I agree that simply being older makes you better in business. I would think that if Caroline was skilled in the business world she would have more involvement in the Brownstone. She has no involvement in it except to attend certain functions. I don't think the theory that her husband owns / operates the catering hall makes her qualified in business. That would be the same as saying if you read a book on surgery you can perform a c-section.
If Caroline's interest was soley the success of Lauren's dream Caroline could have been an equal partner. She chose to have controlling interest. Seems more like Caroline wants a business and she is going to use her daughter's skill to get it. I think there is a vast difference in her mother's input, and her mother's control. She wants to make the most money, make the decisions and tell Lauren how to do it. If Caroline wanted her daughter to succceed and be happy she would have started with allowing Lauren to choose the name for the business. Not naming it something that sounds like Cat Face.
I have four children, two are grown. My wanting them to succeed does not mean that I have to control their every move, make their decision and control their life. If Caroline is so scary smart maybe she could work at the Brownstone and spend more time with the husband she says she misses because he works so much. Maybe she could spend her days in that business....Poor poor Albert...I have a feeling that's something we won't see....
PAHousewife25 She likely owns 51% because she put up the money to get it going, which is a very normal business practice.
I totally agee! and by staying a 51% partner she is essentially telling Lauren she doesn't trust her to manage the store. The name is awful, it makes me think of Cow Face!
Caroline, I admire how strong & independent you are. I also admire how you value family & friends. I completely agree with your dislike of Teresa Giudice she is nothing but a total snake & back stabbing word twisting person. I find myself relating to you on many levels & wish you nothing but the best.
You can't stand Lindsey. It was written all over your face. When you made that comment about her being a cheerleader, you were totally making fun of her. Maybe she doesn't have a rich mom and dad to open up her own salon for her, or a rich uncle to give her a business to work with. Your son is in love with her and yes, men can handle love and work. The stupidest think I ever heard was when you said he has to focus on work now and not Lindsey. ???? When you married Albert, wasn't he just starting out at the Brownstone? I think that turned out well for you both. I think you're making excuses because you don't want Albie to be serious with anyone. You want to be the main woman in his life. And then you talk about Teresa not being a good sister in law. I can only imagine what kind of mother in law you will make. If Lindsey marries Albie, I feel sorry for her for having to deal with you all her life.
Caroline..have only commented on a blog one time before today..and I am here to tell you to stay out of your sons love life. I just went thru the same thing and watched as my son went goo goo eyes over some girl..his attention and focus were completely gone and everything focused around her..I am here to tell you my getting in the middle of it almost cost me my son..so just a word of caution.. Stay out of it! We still have a shaky relationship today and it was months ago when it all started..it broke my heart but he chose the girl (he hardly knew) over me his own mother..I had to learn the hard way ..that they don't make the best choices at their age when it comes to love! Also just one comment. I know you are probably an amazing person and friend..but to me it is beginning to come off that you are always angry at someone or somthing...I will say to you what I said to Jacqueline..if it doesn't affect you in a personal way..love people with all of their bumps and bruise and move on..do you honestly think anyone made a big deal out of Theresa's comment in a magazine article? Most people pay little attention to those things and if they do..then why would you be concerned about a person that spends their days worrying about other peoples lives?
I miss the Caroline of season 1 and 2. It does appear that fame has taken over you and your children.The kids should go back to civilian life.................look hoe mean and bitter reality tv has made you. The kids should get jobs and grow up. Lauren is on her way to becoming as bitter as her mother. What happened? you were my fav until last season. Maybe you should stop asking viewers to read between the lines and state exactly what Teresa has done to your family.
The jokes in the cookbook are not "big" enough for such a fued! Chris did want to open a stripper car was and you supported him-own it. Compared to the way your children have been talking about Teresa, the cookbook jab was mild.
And your new close friendship with the Gorgas? Please! It is so fake. You cant really want to be friends with that trash.Melissa is not going to be a star so you and your kids should jump off that bandwagon before it's too late.
If you return next year (hopefully w/out the Gorga's and Wakile's) please be the old Caroline. If you are fawning all over the Gorga's next season, I won't be watching because it will be fake and sad!
I do miss your husband this season, i always found him to be a good hearted, classy, hardworking man.
When I think all you have meticulously done to that woman (Teresa) I just seethe in anger and have such respect for Teresa not lamenting on it it. She has simpoly cut you out, and gone on with her fabulous life while you stew and stew in vile behavior. This season, the one we are watching NOW was finished, complete before you even sat in that reunion chair. You Caroline, are just dispicable. You crucified her to the nation out of jealousy. You screamed on that deck: "Of COURSE it's not about the cookbook!" and then you hissed that it was because you were sick of her coming between your family members. Dina had said it wasn't true after that , after Teresa went to Dina's house and told her what you said. Dina came out of HIDING to say it was a lie, so all you could do at the reunion (which was taped AFTER this season) was point your finger at her and say 'I'm looking at it" You knew you couldn't say that it was Teresa's fault out loud because you knew Dina had said it wasn't true. So you and Jaq came up with this ridiculous story about Teresa "not being honest." All of this is because you guys failed with your "project" and Teresa is soaring. You gathered those women for that reunion and set Teresa up. It was filmed after this season, so Melissa was saying they were "trying" to work it out and there she was, publically humiliating Teresa. No wonder she doesn't have any of you in her life now. This last episode you definately showed us where your prioroties are, and it's all in blk water. Not gonna work, you are a bully and we will not support yoru family. What you tried to do to Teresa wa too horrific and karma will work. Blk water will fail.
MomLeader Yes...And Teresa was given the wonderful opportunity to be an apprentice on Celebrity Apprentice.
Good things happen to good people.
eroxgarcia She was great? I thought she was as obnoxious and self centered on that show as she always is...always blaming someone else and never taking responsibility. I was shocked she lasted as long as she did.
AntoinetteS Um... I watched all of the episodes of Celebrity Apprentice and Teresa was polite, sweet, hard working and loyal as a team player. Even Donald complimented her many times. Are you referring to Aubrey's or Lisa's outrageous behavior? LOL
AntoinetteS That was the red-head. Whatever her name is. I think she thinks she sings for a living when she's not tossing everyone else around her under the bus. Amber? Ashley? Annoying little crazy red-haired girl? I can't remember her name, that's how quickly she went off the radar.
Teresa is very sick woman and she do not know it she need to stop all the mess because you and everybody know she is sick but her
Seriously stupid name! I totally agree with Lauren when she told her mother that she hated the name. What do you expect from a mother who has talked up her sons as some sort of geniuses for coming up with "Black Water." That's like trying to sell "Clear Coffee."
Albie and Alexa....... Too funny! At least you gave Christie and Billy something to laugh about.
