Hello, everyone! It seems like I hit the send key on last week's blog five minutes ago, but here I am writing a new one. It’s already July, I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to his or her summer, and if you’re in this heat on the East Coast, stay cool! Also I want to send out my best wishes to all those affected by the fires out west and the flooding down south, stay safe!
Speaking of time going by quickly, I generally keep away from the negative in my blogs, because what you are watching right now happened over a year ago, and to me it’s ancient history. But every now and again I need to say something. I did last week, and here I am again this week (I hope this is the last time), so here goes -- there is no way on the planet am I going to buy that Kathy didn’t support Rosie when she came out. Look at the body language between them; love is love, acceptance is acceptance. There’s no denying it when you watch them together. This tabloid thing is a little exhausting too, and I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of that. I shall reserve comments for later on that one.
You said that girls like to be the proirity and work needs to come first and he needs someone that understands that....I think you meant not a cute cheerleader that you made very clear intimnates you and Lauren. What else would he date other than a girl? What's up with you this year is it being 50 and your kids are getting lives of their own? I am 51 and enjoy seeing my kids finding themselves!
Caroline, I just want to start by saying that I think you ROCK! You are smart, good-hearted, beautiful, and I wish there were more people like you on this planet! I think your famly is great! I've read some of the blogs posted below and wonder what planet are these people from?! Anyone who defends Teresa's twisted behavior is just as sick as she is! I know the show is edited and viewers only see a part of what happens it leads me to wonder what other horrible things Teresa is saying or doing that we don't see. I love your personality, how you don't take B.S., and you're always spot-on! You have set the bar on what good and decent is.
I know its been a year since the shows have been aired. I think Kathy supported Rosie when she came out. I see the love that Kathy have for each other. Sisters have issues and they argue with each other.
I think you are great Caroline you are one of my favorites on the show. I love the way you handle everything on the show. I think Teresa is wrong with how she jumped you and Jacqueline that night on the porch.
Caroline, love u and your warm wonderful family. Jacqueline and you represent a unique family dynamic . Unfortunately your knocking on a tough wood door with Teresa, she says one thing, and then it doesn't fit she changes her mind. Flips out, screaming, it's not like she was helpless, she has been putting out all this filth, getting money for it, we understand, she's bankrupt but still lives in a multiple million dollar home, that she has to keep up with the jones. To your beautiful daughter, she needs to accept that it's her heart that we love, I know we live in a superficial nasty world, but I truly worry about her well being. We are not defined by our size, color, disability, but by heart. Now if that is not working for her, boot camp lol Love ya keep being u, a Canadian fan!!
Caroline,anyone that defends theresa's behaviour is obviously the jelous type,,they like her because they can identify themselves with her,as far as im concerned you have said everything correct,Theresa's NUTS,theres no two ways about it,that women would be enough to send anyone around the twist with her lies,no wander the brother needs therapy : )
i wonder why no one saya anything about melissa talking to dan spreading trash she comes out to be the trouble maker and what a set up you and wackey jac had for tres. any one can see thta after jac`s talk with tres at the party stay out of other peoples business and get some control on your rude ass kids how about lauren working in strip car wash oh i forgot she is not pretty in your eyes shame on you
Teresa is the one who brought that woman back into the conversation's.
If Teresa is such a BFF w/Jacqueline - she would never have brought this woman back into the pictrure. That huge fight that ened w/Ashley pulling the woman's hair , was all on Teresa . Melissa admitted to doing it year's ago, I thought Teresa said " LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND", she cannot do that . And if it was not for D.,
I would have never known that Teresa had a brother , sister in law & Neice & Nephew's. Nevermind that she had a cousin. The way she sit's back & let's her husband call them all those horrible name's with the parent's & children is disgusting & then wonder's why they do not want to stay for Christmas Dinner,
WOULD YOU ??
I am a 44yr.old female, married 19yrs./Cancer Survivor and there is no way in heck I would let my Husband talk about my family or even a friend say all the disgusting thing's he said !
Come on , she act's like she is a cook's l , she can not even say an Ingrediant's correctly, then to trash friend's & family in the Cookbook & in all the Rag Mag's she pose's for & talk's freely . She tries to say the magazine wrote what she said, that is a Lie, as a Business Owner , those magazine's would never quote her, she would sue in a second. How about Therapy, first she called it Physical Therapy, then she said she would go , so he would see it is Melissa & him causing the problem's. Her Jealousy of how her brother treat's his wife is so obvious, & the fact that Melissa is alot better looking really bother's her, you can tell she thought she was the best looking one on the show ( NOT ) !
She should be careful; KARMA IS A BIT%$!!
Her brother does not talk so horrible to his wife as her husband, he cannot throw money at her like in the beginning to shut her up, so now he is drinking way to much ( Sadly watching, we are watching an Alcoholic on a show ),
I agree with Caroline , that she was glad it was written in black & white in the book her insult's about Caroline & not mentioning his name , C.'s son.
Come on what kind of women would wash clothe's naked.
She think's what she wrote was funny & then said SHE IS THE FUNNY ONE ONE THE SHOW, PLEASE .
The last thing with her is ; If you do not agree with her , you are not her friend.
Jacqueline was not insulting her , she really thought she might go to jail & was showing concern, sadly Teresa is not the smartest apple on the show at all,
take's it as an insult. I do not believe that people are " THROW-AWAY'S".
but apparently she does.
YOU COULD NOT PAY ME 300-MILLION DOLLAR'S TO GO ON THAT TRIP TO THE WINE COUNTRY.
And I try to stay away from negative commmenting, but I can't help myself because of you and your immediate family's negative comments, you and your scowl - SHUT UP!
I think you u should mind your own business and start up a new hobby.I am sick of you acting like you know it all and putting your nose into every ones business. I dont know where your actions r coming from but put it to rest! I feel for your daughter and maybe you should stop with the comments about her weight.
Please dont let these idiots effect you. I am sickened by the supporters of Teresa and their total lack of common sense and cruelty. You are 1000%right and have given the benefit of the doubt long enough! Teresa and her fans need help and need to learn how to treat people and learn how to behave and have feelings for more than just themselves.! I could write a book on examples of how disgusting her behavior has been but why waste my time? Just know you have the support of good people of sound mind and dont ever question that there are reasonable viewers and fans with morals and values in complete support of you.! Unfortunately ,nasty gets published more than normal. You are a great Mom and friend and it shows! Wishing you all the best and keep that integrity that we love you for!!!!
I don't see any parallels in your life or Kathy's. Maybe that neither of you work. Her kids are so sweet and respectful....yours ride on Albert's coattails and say nasty things about others. Kathy is sweet....you are bitter. I don't believe your story. Anything to make your life seem a little more interesting. I can't imagine there were a lot of families willing to give up their kid because another family member could not have children.....Italian or not!!! I would imagine this is very, very rare. A very few women would be able to do that. You dropping off swimsuits to Jac's was such a staged ambush......give us a little credit will ya? we aren't stupid. None of their conversation was any of your business!
"I feel like Kathy and I have a lot of parallels in our lives, maybe that’s why we connect the way we do."
That must be why she was rolling her eyes at you while you tried to get her to attack her own cousin.
You trying to create an alliance with Teresa's family, Caroline. Grow up.
Totally agree with kmk9 post! Get them off the air and lets see some people being nicer to each other.
Caroline I think you are one classy lady and a terrific mom!! I enjoy seeing you and your family!!
Caroline, I always love to watch you and your family. Please don't say anything to Lauren about her weight. As an overweight person for most of my life we can see it. Please help her to know that she is a beautiful young woman
Every little girl and young woman should be able to count on her mother to always tell her she is beautiful. Shame on Caroline.
Caroline,You are kidding yourself if you think you got the best of Teresa on Jaq's deck. She made you eat your own words. You said she never apologized, she pointed out where and when, then you finally realized it had been filmed and changed it to it was an empty apology so I didn't accept it. Then when Jaq would not back you up on that Teresa said do not talk to Melissa and Kathy, again you had to back down to, "you implied it". She correctly pointed out the ambush and the absolute best was when she called your BS with "you heard screaming from your house". She cleaned your clock old lady.Still laughing.
Love you and your family! I think you are all genuine, caring and tough! I think Teresa should take a page from your book! I think your entire family is absolutely wonderful! You have great kids, a great husband and a great outlook! I love the show because of all of you!
First of all ..THANK YOU for acknowledging our devastation here in Colorado Springs over the last 2 weeks. My neighbors and I actually stood outside in our yards that horrible Tuesday night and saw houses go up like matches connecting to eachother., one after another after another in a matter of minutes, and it truly was one of the most horrifying things I'd ever seen...so thank you for your shout out and prayers.
That said, I have to say I really don't understand your thought process this season. You say you want "no drama" yet - I was pretty put off when you infused yourself into the conversation Teresa and Jacqueline were having. Why would you feel the need to do something like that and to also give your 2 cents when those two were having a private conversation?
You seem like a sensible adult woman, yet that reminded me of mean girls from high school wanting to gang up on an underdog.
I don't condone things Teresa has done or said. But I also don't condone that 'ganging up on' mentality that is so prevalent in teenagers.
I am mindful that the viewers don't always see everything that may lead up to that kind of situation...maybe you were invited to the conversation. But that's not what we saw.
Just my personal observation. Why not just not partake in conversations that you are not invited to join? That certainly would eliminate a lot of drama you say you don't want to be a part of. Just stay out of it!
You have always been honest through all the seasons. I cannot express enough how much the love for your family shines. You have stayed true to yourself and have not let the show change the amazing person you really are.
Caroline, hang in there, ok? I have to laugh at just reading some of these comments, what a hoot. You are a great lady and a great Mom, don't let anyone tell you differently. As far as Teresa, all I can assume is they need money and by Teresa keeping things stirred up, she must be getting paid by the tabloids. To bad Joe can't seem to support the family any more and too bad Teresa can't stop spending. Oh, well.....just don't change. You are the best of the best.
Caroline, you're an older lady & menopausal, but you must maintain your dignity. You are not the matriarch of the show or anyone else's family except your own. Try to lighten up & smile even if you don't feel like it. Don't say another word about Lauren's weight. What kind of mother does that? Every viewer knows Teresa is a liar & stirs the pot. Her story from week to week changes. I'm amazed that Joe enables the craziness that Teresa perpetrates to continue. I hope Bravo gets rid of Teresa for good.
Every viewer does not know TERESA is a liar! Some viewers see through her family, Caroline and Jac. Caroline is the liar, she does not have justification for the hate she has shown towards Teresa. She said at the reunion that Theresa was the problem between her and Dina, did not believe that then and Caroline knows Dina very well and knows she will not reveal all the ugly details. Caroline is not a good person. She does not care how much she hurts Teresa, she has justified all ot the hurtful things her family has done including Melissa contacting Danielle. And that CLUELESS Jac said why Is Teresa Bringing Danille back into our lives? No sweetie it's your girlfriend Melissa who would have done that if EVERYTHING went her way. This show used to be fun and so much more lighthearted. Caroline did not have a problem with Teresa when she flipped the table at Danille right? She did not have a problem with Teresa when Dina baptized her baby right? That wasn't very long ago. Caroline also wants us to accept that she is angry at Teresa for the way she would VENT to her about her family, Caroline doesn't give a crap. She was mad at Teresa way before the cookbook came out as well. She attacked Teresa as a mother at the last reunion but I think Teresa is a great mother and the way she has acted has no logical reason. Not to mention all the crap about, wait the truth will come out, keep watching. We are watching what's the BIG TRUTH? These people are disgraceful, and Teresa's the liar? Have u counted how many lies her family and so called friend have told? A LOT!
Lauren told us that your family hashtag, #FEBUS, would be revealed to mean something positive, and we would all be ashamed of ourselves for calling you out on it after watching this season. That we would see what it really means, not f*** everybody but us. I look forward to the upcoming episode that clears up this misunderstanding.
I much prefer smart over drama and you over Teresa. I do not think you are any of the negative things people have called you. I am surprised to see so many people doing that, and frankly have to wonder about who they really are. The vitriol is such that I suspect the comments are planted rather than genuine.
cehemise Comments are not planted but genuine. You are entitled to your opinion but your judgement is flawed which is why Caroline's behavior seems normal to you. Smart is a not an adjective most people would use to describe Caroline. "Vitriol" is an adjective that applies to her. Hatred envelops her or as she would put it, "envelopes" her.
Love you Caroline and hope to see that happy spark in your eyes again. It's been a rough ride and you don't deserve all the flack you get. I applaud you for standing up to Teresa and being willing to suffer the wrath from all her supporters.....I don't where she gets them from. I'm definitely team Caroline and Jacqueline.
ocdeb65 Ditto; some folks go for the flash and drama, and law breakers, etc...if Caroline wasn't on the show, it would be all Teresa drama, which has become very, very boring.
Were you and your family "acting" the first season(s) and now were are seeing your true selves? There is no substance there! All I see is a cranky and opinionated, "rough-around-the-edges" mom and some seriously bratty children who are just as one-demensional! Find something that makes you happy and do it and maybe you'll have a nicer outlook! Teresa is the only one this season who is worth watching!
**Hoping Bravo will post this--we'll see*
Caroline... I'm not sure where your big ego came from... or why you think you're the end-all authority on "family" -- but I think it stems from earlier seasons (when most of us loved you).
I think WE the fans inflated your ego.
We're paying for that now. With your know-it-all attitude... you are just painful to watch/hear. Every single word out of your mouth is an anti-Teresa rant... and you say it with such authority that I guarantee you intimidate everyone around you.
That's not having a relationship with people -- it's called being a DICTATOR. And that's fine once in a while (like in Season 1)... but as it stands, you've lost any shred of HUMANITY and HUMILITY.
And on top of that... in my eyes anyway... you've lost any shred of RESPECTABILITY.
You and Jacqueline insinuate yourself into other's business all the time. Then you claim they've wronged you. You tell Teresa you're backing off... then you go to Melissa's party and talk to Joey... Melissa... even Kathy....
How about you and your ego shut-up? How about that?
Seriously bravo... Every episode its the same thing....
1. Jaq/Caroline stirring the pot in Teresa's family issues.
2. Plugging Melissa's "music career"
3. Talking about Lauren's weight.
HOW LONG CAN VIEWERS WATCH THAT?
Please Bravo... get Caroline and Jaq off the show already... this has been the worst season ever... it has literally been nothing but the bash-Teresa (with a little bash-your-daughter ala carte).
It's not even DRAMA anymore... cuz we, the viewers (the ones with the power to KILL UR RATINGS) know exactly what to expect every episode. It's quickly becoming the biggest YAWWWWWWN of the RH franchise.
kmk9 Great comment. When the show became more about Teresa and her family Caroline was determined to get the focus back on her family. That can only happen if Teresa is out of the picture. Makes me wonder if Danielle really deserved the treatment she got from Caroline (bringing up the book).
lol!!! I was just going to write the same thing!!! I laughed out loud at that!!!
kmk9 I couldn't agree with you more! Everything you said was right on. Caroline and Jacqueline need to go.
@kmk9 I totally agree! Caroline and Jaq's lives are so boring!! Stop talking about Lauren's weight....it is like kettle meet pot. maybe everyone should let you know that you could lose a few too. You would not like that would ya? I'm sure Lauren is humiliated.
Caroline, you justify, dismiss and excuse your bad behavior (at the age of 50) by blaming it on menopause. You justify, dismiss and excuse Lauren's bad behavior (at the age of 23) on her poor body image (which, by the way, you have absolutely contributed to...). So why no such lenience and compassion for Gia, who is only 10 years old and obviously going through very difficult times at home. No compassion for a 10-yr old, just snark and self-righteous indigination because she was disrespectful to you. She is a little kid! What is YOUR daughter's excuse?? Go scratch.
The only reason Caroline attacked Gia is because she was mad at Teresa...She should be incredibly embarrassed to have everyone see what she and Jacqueline did...and what a wonderful uncle and aunt to see what they did and not defend their niece...Caroline's adult kids are rude, poorly mannered and ...But hey, they are Caroline's....
Forgot one thing; Caroline is also HONEST; a word as foreign to Theresa as the correct pronunciation and meaning of many basic words are.
Caroline lives in a dream world of by blaming everything short of global warming on Teresa.
coloitalian Yes, Caroline is honest. Teresa manipulates and implies things about others to make herself look good. She does it on a regular basis. The ongoing tabloid stories are a great example of that. And, she gets paid to do it, too! Caroline is just fed up with Teresa's behavior. I think most of us are, too.
Teresa manipulates things? I think I remember the attack on Teresa at Jacqueline's house (oh wait I mean awakening)...Caroline was out of line with her comments acting like she is superior...But when Caroline told Joe Gorga of the incident she made it sound like a tea party! She lied to make herself look innocent the same way Jacqueline did...they do it time and again...I don't care for some of the things we have seen Teresa do in the past, and I think her kids are poorly behaved but to blame everything on her when you can plainly see the manipulation that is going on is outrageous...Caroline is not the mother of everyone on the show. She should know her place and stay in it...Just because her kids follow her around and act like she is queen doesn't mean everyone will (I personally find her a little too masculine)...Caroline should worry more about a husband who seems to spend an awful lot of time at work where there is a vacant furnished apartment upstairs...Maybe that's why she's sooooo nasty this season
Yes, HONEST to goodness a bully!!! Caroline, herself, has trouble pronouncing words herself!
