Caroline Manzo wishes all her family drama would just disappear.

on Sep 12, 20120

Hey guys, sorry for the late blog! It’s been a busy week.
 
It was fun to watch all the little kids get ready for school; I remember those days well, hectic but magical at the same time. Little excited faces with brand new haircuts, shiny new shoes, and the coolest lunch box ever. Don’t you wish you could be that little kid again? Life was so much easier.
 
I sympathized with Kathy while Victoria was checking out her college options. I remember when we did that with Albie, the dorms were small with cinderblock walls and it was quite a shock when we first walked in. The fact of the matter is that for Albie it was the best experience in the world. He grew so much from being away from home. Don’t worry, Kathy! She’ll be back looking for dinner with a bag full of laundry before you know it.

Caroline: I am a New Jersey girl from Union NJ. I think you are wonderful and a beautiful person. Everyone else know it too. Theresa is not a nice person. Sometimes, life is not fair. You have much more class and brains than her. Take care and forget her comments, noone believes what she saids.

Caroline, no one likes Theresa.  We see her manipulations, her games, her viciousness.  So now, you please let go of her and have a great big, fun life yourself.  We want to see you happy again.

I just notice that Caroline always points her index finger at Teresa and the other four are diredted toward herself 8-)

Is funny how all this people assume they know the real lives of this Women on this show ... Please you people get to see only 45 minutes of this show ... don't mean you guys know them . .. or know what really goes on .

I wouldn't have wanted to tell my family member what occured at this Kim's shop. I would stupidly think the woman would keep her trap shut. It was a set up for drama for her fashion show.

Poor Teresa and poor Melissa. Melissa, who cares what you did in your past. I mean really!

If you don't want to be friends with Teresa anymore then you need to stay away from Teresa's family including Kathy and Melissa families too!

I hope that you have the integrity to apologize to Teresa for EVERY MALICIOUS THING YOU HAVE EVER SAID AND DONE TO HER. I BELIEVE YOU WATCHED THE FINALE AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF NOT JUST YOURSELF, BUT WITH YOUR ENTIRE ENTOURAGE.

Caroline,

Your actions during this episode at the Posh Fashion Show made me think you, Jacqueline and Lauren set up Teresa G.  You did say you have a nervous laugh.  Well, you did a lot of laughting when that guy stop by and said hi to Melissa and Teresa.

wow, could you have been any ruder to poor Lindsey?? Saying you could smell her cooking from down the hall ... and not in a complimentary way. Walking in and immediately opening a window?? Wow.

Caroline, watching you do your work is like nails on a chalkboard.  You are very manipulative and love to get everyone to gang up against people.  Did you not see the shows when Melissa first joined the show?  She and her sisters talked all kind of horrible stuff about Tre.  And, by the way, when you agree to do a magazine cover and interview, there's a very good chance that the  article is going to  be a misrepresentation of what you said.  How do I know?  It's happened to me many times.   There was a lot printed that you ASSUMED came out of Tre's mouth.  I know you're not that naive.  You accuse Tre of being everything horrible, but it's actually you that's the worst woman on the show.  Get off your high perch.  You are not better than Teresa.  I'm not her biggest fan.  But, you're pushing me toward her when I see you manipulate others against her and blame her for everything.  All of you women need to take  responsibility for your disgusting behavior, least of which is Teresa.  You are, by far, the worst.

Why are you so determined that Albie not have a serious relationship.  He is 25 for goodness sakes and Lindsey is a lovely girl inside.  You were very rude to her in last night's episode when you said something about openning a window.

Caroline - You are so right about Teresa & Joe.  They are very jealous & evil people.  I agree with Ktindle about Dina.  It's funny how she felt she needed to leave the show when all the Danielle drama happened but yet she has no problem returning & stirring up drama with Teresa now in regards to her own sister.  I don't know what the problem is between you & Dina but I hope if it's meant to be then it will be.  I come from a big family as well & most of us are not on speaking terms but sometimes it is better that way since having toxic people in your life (family or not) can be hazardous to your health.  Stay strong & don't fall into the Giudice trap.  It sickens me that someone as dumb as Teresa is making money off of a cookbook & now Fabellini.

I just watched the Posche Fashion show episode and I am disgusted.  I really don't understand where you are coming from.  If you decided to walk away from your friendship from Teresa, then why would you choose to sit at the same table with her?  So you can ignore her and make her feel uncomfortable while you laugh with everyone else? I am no huge Teresa fan but I actually felt sorry for her. 

 

You also told Kathy that you don't want your issues with Teresa to impact her relationships with her family. So why on earth did you annouce on national tv that Teresa said those things about Melissa.  Here is a question for you - Do you think Melissa had anything nicer to say about Teresa back then???? She was talking to danielle about her - what do you think that conversation was like?  You may want to watch Melissa and Kathys first season one more time and see Melissa's attitude towards Teresa.  All you did was stir up trouble.  For a 50 something year old woman, you certainly act like you are in high school.

Caroline needs to address the fact that she is in the US Weekly tabloid at least once a month.  For you and your band of merry back-stabbers to call out Teresa is like the pot calling the kettle black don't ya think?

stop blaming people because you don't  get along with your family start smiling you will see things much better and think happy ....

Caroline,

 

So sorry that your own sister Dina had to stir the pot.  Dina thinks that she is a spiritual person.  It is like Teresa thinking that she is a smart person.  Love to watch you and your family interact however I wish someone would tell Jacqueline to quit playing the naive victim because it gets real old.

Caroline~ You Jaq are really not looking very good...In trying to dircredit @Teresa Guidice all season long (on the show as well as off) you have turned the Public AGAINST you Manzos/Lauritas. (Chris & Al Sr. excluded, except for when you or he implied he was going to 'take down' Joe Guidice THAT was a very High School comment to make)

Anyways, ALL season long us viewers have waited and waited to see what it is that Teresa did since you and Jaq haven't shut up about what a terrible person she is for over a year now, and let me tell you....i'm really not seeing anything. Tre is no angel, but the articles are seriously NOT that big of a deal. Your going off on a tangent about what a fake person she is and you almost had us, but NOT quite. I gotta say I am really surprised at how bad you are all acting.

 

 The smear campaign against Tre is a joke her products and books are doing extremely well and BLK & the Sauces aren't...think a blind person could see what's going on here. 

Also if you don't want to believe T that she had nothing to do with your Dina drama, then why not believe your own SISTER since she has said numerous times that T has NOTHING to do with you & her drama. wonder why your own sister is mad at you. Please Caroline TAKE responsibility for your part in all this....as we can all see you really are "The Puppeteer"

  

Lastly, now that the episode has aired I gotta say, Tre looked about as stunned as the rest of us when Angelo brought up Melissa... Clear as day Tre did not set up Melissa its OBVI that Kim did...are you going to ADMIT you were wrong? we all know everyone needs your permission before making a statement regarding anything.  Maybe YOU GUYS attacked Tre and SET her up, with Kim! Who knows? Its all speculation like you guys assuming Teresa would ever do that to her brother's wife. but unless some crazy bomb gets dropped next episode that shows us otherwise its pretty clear whos wrong and who got set up this season, and YOU guys really need to start apologizing, not only for your behavior but for bad mouthing Tre ALL SEASON LONG. jealousy & greed aren't  a good look on you..... It's all starting to make sense.

Bla, Bla, Bla.... Don't listen to these haters Caroline!!!  You are a warm, kind hearted, loving person!  I think that most people just can't handle the TRUTH, and bless your heart, you can't help but speak it!  I have honestly heard your voice in my head when speaking to my child..... Used your advise, disciplining ways and believe that I am a better Mother for it!  You and your husband have done a wonderful job in the raising of your children, who now are remarkable adults!  We should all be so lucky....

God bless all of you!

Someone better remind dina that when teresa slams caroline as being about as italian as the olive garden, she is slamming her too

Caroline, Why don't you just admit that you love the drama, and the attention you get from being on this show. Ever single episode you have to mention you hate drama, that you are too mature or evolved to act like a child. If this were true you would have left the show after the first season. You are just as hungry for attention as Theresa. I never say this, but I truly think you are jealous of Theresa's business successes from this show. Not her life but the books and all the media attention she gets. If yu are over the drama then leave RHWNJ. I believe most of the fans are over you. Bye Bye....

I must admit I didn't like you or Teresa during the first season.  I thought you were picking on poor Dina ( I know she was crazy).  However the one thing I notice was you were always a lady and we can't say the same for T  ( Flipping tables etc.)  Just step away from the crazy (Teresa) and ignore her fans....

 

Remember step away from the crazy and step into the light Caroline

Wow...you are so jealous.....Kim set up Melissa not Teresa....The world does not revolve around you and your family.

Of course you want all your family drama to disappear and your way of trying to do that is to create Teresa problems! You are a manuipating person and it is sad you create problems for others thinking yours will just go away!!! The best thing for the show, is for you to be off and done away with and let the other house wives move on with happy normal lives!

You just hang in there gf... you have done an amazing job as a wife, mother, & friend.  You don't need to swallow BS & smile & say it tastes yummy - you have a right to call it BS & never eat the crap again.  You have a right to expect & demand truth, respect, honesty, integrity & a drama-free life.  You are absolutely entitled to expect that your children & family are "off limits".  And sometimes there are people who just need to be the center of the world - no matter the cost to themselves or others.  You are not that person because you're secure with who you are, what you've accomplished & you don't need to "sell stories" to gain people to "your side".  You've created a loving family, have an amazing marriage, your children love & respect you, & you have a very successful business.  This "other person" has a husband who is carrying on behind her back, calls her disgusting names, her children are spoiled rotten & out of control, & the only business she's created is one of cashing in on reality TV celebrity.  Sometimes these types of people are not happy in themselves & rather than find ways to make changes in them - they try to pull everyone else in to their drama or down to their level to show themselves & everyone else around that they're "normal".  

 

You see thru all of that & I'm soooooooo thankful that you don't jump in to that cesspool of BS.  It's truly disgusting & such a relief to see your children & husband stand by your side, but in a dignified & respectful way - not throwing things, calling names, or using violence.  

 

Just stay strong in yourself...your family...and your faith...and know that Kharma is a bigger bitch than you'll ever need to be.

 

Love you...now go grab some cheese & a glass of wine & unwind.  You deserve it!

We see only bits and pieces of your lives on the show. We aren't privy to all the details. But I love seeing your family on the show. I'm estranged from mine and it's nice to see family positivity on TV.I hope you and your sister reconcile.

Have any of you apoligized about the horrible things you said, and acussing her of somwthing she had no part of. I dont know if I can stomach another reunion with your finger pointing, refusing to say what they did, and then crying like the victom.

I think it's really wrong that you give Teresa so much power to blame her for your problems with your sister. Take responsibility for your relationships and stop blaming Teresa.

You asked tonight, "why anyone would want to listen to what you had to say?.... You are just Caroline".....The answer....Tonights show...you have hit the nail on the head all season with Teresa.  I have been thinking almost the same time you have said things about her, how she really is.  She doesn't fool me...that is for sure.  I'm glad you stand firm on your feelings and morals.

Caroline,

They say the truth shall set you free and it is true. Eventually the truth always makes itself to the surface to make itself known. A persons true identity always makes its appearance known. I think many of us do see you as a person with a good heart and a nurturer, hang in there and remember your family has your back and you can always count on them.

Keep your chin up Caroline, your husband and your kids are your first priority, and you do this like no other. This is your family vs. fair weather friends. Not saying that you should always defend your family, but stand up for the truth, that's it. Caroline, your daughter takes after you, so does Christopher, they should be greatful, you should be proud.  They both voiced their opinions without predudice, they had your back. As far as friends go, time will speak for itself, in due time, who you thought were friends usually aren't.

One question, when Caroline and the rest attended her brother's wedding in Chicago, why didn't Dina at least call to congratulate the happy couple. I mean Caroline said Dina couldn't attend because of her hectic schedule. Ok, so Dina couldn't be at the wedding, but why couldn't she call and wish her brother a happy life.

 @dink72 Why should she give up good people like Kathie and Rich, and Melissa and Joe ?  they don't have to be with Theresa alll the time, and I think they are finally going to get their eyes open to the real theresa in fact I think that Kathie and Rich see her for what she is !

I didn't hear Dina say one bad thing about Caroline, she stayed pretty neutral if you ask me although I think she agrees with tre, she knows her sister better than anyone and she seemed to think it was a bit petty. Dina wasn't looking for attention she only got on Camera because of the fight between T & Caroline, which she didn't know would blow up so big when she filmed it, so i highly doubt she had all these motives like your making it seem.

To: JenNJ, I'm Having trouble with the site connecting me to you JenNJ, so I hope you do get this O.K.  Jamie & Dina have both said, they ARE & ALWAYS have been very close! It's just my opinion, but I do believe that Jamie's wedding being aired on the RHONJ rather then on Dina's show "Dina's Party" was the reason an existing Rift was deepened between Caroline & Dina. Dina has always supported Jamie's lifestyle, and I don't believe she would have ill feelings towards him over his decision. Getting the message of marriage equality "out there" is something Dina would respect. Caroline steeling the idea, from Dina behind her back...is another story!
