Caroline addresses her battles with Teresa and menopause.

Hello again! I can't believe we're back, it seems like we never left -- is that a good thing or a bad thing? I'd like to think that most of you would answer GOOD!

Seven months ago we left you with quite a cliffhanger, and I'm sure many of you have questions that need answers. I completely understand, so here's the good news -- Season 4 will explain it all. Be patient, read between the lines, and as the weeks unfold you all will have a better understanding of decisions that were made and the reasons behind them.

Watching the first episode made me uncomfortable; to be brutally honest I'm not in the mood to relive it all, but it is what it is, so here I am. That being said, I think I'm going to keep this blog very generic and get down to the nitty-gritty of things as the weeks progress. Baby steps, baby steps.

OK, here we go -- the cookbook comment and the apology that followed. I want you all to think; do I strike you as the type of person that would end a relationship over a shallow comment in a cookbook? The answer is no, I'm not. The cookbook was the tangible piece of evidence I needed to state my case regarding all the rumors I had been hearing for months. A rumor is a rumor, nothing more, but when you see something written in black and white, there's no denying the truth. The worst part is when the opportunity arose to discuss the comment, I was looked right in the face and lied to. No accountability, no remorse. That was my ah-hah moment -- the truth was revealed and I made a decision, end of story. Again watch and read between the lines. I'm aware that some of you won't agree with my decision, and quite frankly that's fine. This is how I feel, and I'm standing by it. Let me know in September if you agree with me. By then you will have had a pretty good idea of where I'm coming from.

MENOPAUSE -- I'm not quite myself these days and the doctor believes I'm knocking on the door of menopause. If that's the case, then open the door and let me in! Teach me what I need to know; how will I be feeling, what's next emotionally and physically, and how do I deal with it in a positive manner. I'm not going to fight it, because whether I like it or not, I realize this is a battle I won't win. The fact of the matter is simply this -- I'm getting older and my body is going through some changes. I've decided to educate myself and go with the flow. If I have to go through this, I'm doing it with dignity. Wish me luck! Like I said earlier, I'm easing back into the Housewife stratosphere, so that's it for now.

Thank you to each and every one of you who watch us week after week, you are appreciated more than you know. I love reading your comments on Facebook and Twitter, the good and the bad, so keep them coming! You can find me on Facebook -- go to fan pages and search Caroline Manzo. My Twitter handle is @carolinemanzo -- stop in and say hello!

See you all next week!
