Proud Mommy Moment

Caroline Manzo is thrilled about the success of Cafface.

Hello again! Sorry for the late blog two weeks in a row, I’m really slacking!
 
I was happy to see Kathy follow her passion for baking and bring it to a new level. She’s super talented, and I wish her nothing but success in her new endeavor. Just remember Kathy, the Manzos are willing to taste test at any time!
 
Brunch at the boys’ apartment was great. We had a lot of laughs and Lindsey did a great job as hostess. Contrary to what you may all believe, I actually love Lindsey. I liked her from the moment I met her, and think she is a wonderful, wonderful young lady.
 
I am thrilled for Lauren; Cafface is absolutely gorgeous and she is doing a phenomenal job, but more importantly, she’s happy. It’s located in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. Follow her on Twitter @cafface for beauty tips and sale updates! Keep on watching, folks, this girl is going places! (Proud mommy moment!)Ashlee is doing very well in California. Yes, she’s had some growing pains and has made her fair share of mistakes, but she was back home a few weeks ago and she has made some very positive changes. She’s growing up and taking responsibility for herself. We all knew she had it in her; maybe the California sunshine had to bring it out? Keep on keeping on, Ashlee, we’re proud of you here in New Jersey!
 
The Posche fashion show is proving itself to be a memorable event year after year, wouldn’t you agree? Are we gluttons for punishment or suckers for fashion, that’s the million dollar question.

Looks like we’re winding down to the final few episodes, but unfortunately the drama is on full throttle. See you guys next week, get ready, it’s a wild one.

Amber: Is Dina Coldhearted?

Amber Marchese dishes on her first reunion and why Dina Manzo confuses her.

Hello Housewife friends!  Welcome to the jungle baby! My first reunion was a wild ride. Call me sick and twisted, but I had an unbelievable time at the reunion when most, I have been warned, dread it. I felt like it was “The Great Purge” and when I went home I was felt relieved of any built up tension. I don’t care if anyone has a grudge against me, my slate is clean and I harbor no ill feelings towards anyone. I love to argue my point, and I truly stood by all of my convictions this season, so I was ready to say exactly what was on my mind, and then some. 

I know the twins and I went at one another pretty hard, but that is what the reunion is all about. It is an opportunity to get it all out and potentially understand one another's position better. Then we can each make our own decisions as to where we want to go with our relationships. I am very much the type of person that can say some of the meanest things and sling mud, but hug it out at the end forgetting anything negative that was said. It just rolls off my back. I actually think it is healthier to say what needs to be said, and then move on.

One thing I did question after the reunion was if Dina actually has a heart or if I should start calling her the Tin Man. I actually have not figured her out yet. Is she really just a coldhearted bitch, or has she been hurt so many times that she has become warped and jaded. I feel I don’t owe anyone any reason as to why I call cancer “the cancer,” but I will give it once more anyhow. “The cancer” is “the monster” to me. It is a way for me to take away its power and to minimize it. “It” destroys lives, so “it” does not deserve a name. It is just “the cancer” -- it was “the monster” or “the dragon.” Although Dina claims to have an understanding of how devastating cancer is to a family, her actions and blatant lack of empathy proves otherwise.

In addition, I did not think it was appropriate for me to interject into family quarrels at the reunion; however, this is something that I feel strongly about. I have met Jaqueline and I have spoken to her on many occasions. In the very short time that I have gotten to know Jaqueline, I know and have empathy with the struggles she has caring for Nicholas. I felt that Dina’s interpretation of her nephew was callous and completely out of touch with reality. The only thing that keeps playing in my mind is, "You know nothing John Snow."  No, thank God, he is not hooked up to machines with cancer; however, what the Laurita family goes through is extremely difficult on a day to day basis that will continue on for a lifetime. It is emotionally and financially devastating. Although, Dina "visits" children with cancer, at the end of her visit she gets to go home, leaving it behind and goes on with her daily life. Since Dina does work with children with cancer, I pray that she can abstain from a self-absorbed lifestyle and become a loving, involved aunt.
