On that note, I’m on vacation with my family right now and Bravo isn’t on my radar. Love you guys, but I gotta go!
Where are your supposed supporters Caro-line? Not one call on your Sirus gig...imagine that. You have destroyed the one time fav show amongst the housewives series. We are breaking up with you Caroline. We don't want to be your friend.
Caroline You ROCK!!! Whether or not Theresa ever admits or takes ownership of her crap is no longer your concern. You've turned the light on to her lies.... the rest is left up to her family and poor Jacqueline to see her for whom she truly is. I wish I had of been there in Napa with you...I would have had your back! She is one pitiful excuse for a friend. I trust Jacquelines' eyes are opened soon. She is so much better than that...she has such a forgiving spirit about her but some things need to just be left alone......NAMELY, Theresa!!!! SHE IS TOXIC....Take care of yourself....I think you are wonderful. PS...Fifty looks AWESOME on you!
I personally think Caroline is awesome. Teresa is a horrible person and is making everyone on the show come down to her level. I honestly don't see what everyone sees in Teresa, her husband sucks and cheats and she's very cruel and jealous and always needs attention. It's really sad to me that America seems to be on her side in this arguement. It makes me want to move out of the country to be perfectly honest. I guess it's hard to have any real opinion on this cause without the drama it wouldn't be on tv and no one would care anyways. None of us really know what anyone's real point of view is as all this reality tv crap could possibly be scripted, wether completely or just Bravo giving them some idea on what this scene is about. So I'll stop typing now and begin to contemplate how I ended up commenting on this article in the beginning. Goodnight.
THE MANZOS SHOULD BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE SHOW. CAROLINE IS SO DEPRESSING TO WATCH. SHE THINKS SHES THE GODFATHER OF ALL ITALIAN FAMILIES AND THAT EVERYONE SHOULD KISS HER RING.... BEAT IT! YOUR RUINING THE SHOW.
jenna12345 I would love to see this family of hate leave the show, there is no room for the mess they have to give viewers, it has gone overboard,
Funny. Caroline talks Of apologizing & doing things in private, off camera. Why is it then ok for her to fakely accept theresa apology, only to confront her on camera? If caroline wants an apology off screen, then why shouldnt she have to confront theresa off camera? Why insist on goin at her in front of friends n family on screen? Say what u will about teresa, but shes never been that vile in front of carolines family to her. Caroline dishes it out as much as theresa does on the confessionals of tv. Going constantly at Some1 all the time after acting like everythings ok fers really old really quik. And ps caroline- tweeting youre not gonna tweet/ fb as u tweet that... Really? Huh????
Deegee420 Exactly why does she keep bringing it up on camera, she has no issue other than the one she has with herself, she mental I tell you and very unsteady..............SICK!!, of Caroline and her family
I like you... but liked you better before you began to to hammer on Theresa so much. Can't you just leave your anger toward her alone? I think it makes you seem mean and vindictive. You say "it is what it is"...but, she is who she is. I think she's been in "survival" mode for so long that she can't focus on much else. You were right to believe she needed your support last year. She still does. But if you can't be supportive, move on. You need to stop interferring in her relationships with other people. You are better than that. Bravo has shown the entire cast taking shots at her all season. Her comments responding to what's going on aren't usually on the mark and often anger based. She's allowed everyone to make her defensive and sometimes aggressive. She clearly doesn't express herself well. Just accept that that's who she is. I don't think she tries to be mean spirited, most of the time. She's probably just reacting without thinking things through. You don't need to be her friend, if your trust is gone. It's OK.
Amazing!!! That sums you up in one word. Or perhaps, it's" Blessed! Your husband and children are so lucky to have you healthy and such a part of there life. My mom has been struck with several types of cancer since age 60.she's my best friend. Since 60, she's had ovarian cancer, then brain tumor, then colon cancer, then liver cancer, then cancer in both lungs, and now it's in her spine. She looks so healthy you would never know she was sick. Other than, we can't go on long walks. Value your time with your beautiful family. I just cant imagine life without her. We so enjoy watching your family live their dreams!
Seriously, some people complain and expect that everyone on this show should be nice and friendly with each other and that Caroline is a bad person because she doesn't like Teresa. I don't care for Caroline but I am watching her on a "reality" show and I cannot act like I her behavior directly affects my own life or that these are actually my friends. If there was no drama on this show and it was a bunch of housewives kissing each other's butts and sitting around together knitting, you would not be watching. People complain about all the drama that is caused by this person or that person, and yet they would not be watching if such drama did not exist. Each and every one of these women has a right to like or not like whomever they want. There are billions of people on the planet and you are not going to like every single person.
Proximity does not equal or guarantee friendship. If anyone claims to have never said a bad word about a person they do not like, then they are a liar. The people on this show choose to grin and bear it for a reason. They all benefit in some way from the drama. It is no different than you smiling and acting cordial with a coworker you might despise then going home and complaining to your husband or friends about that coworker. Some people comment about Caroline and Teresa as if they actually know them and are directly affected by their decisions and their interactions together. It is funny how people rip on Caroline (or even the other housewives) for being nasty, hateful, fake, hypocritical etc. and yet they make the same nasty and hypocritical comments about a person they do not even know.
Caroline, you were my favorite from day one. You are a great example a strong, passionate, loving woman. But on the flip side you are very grudgeful. I never notice in the first few session because the persons you dislike, had every right to be disliked against. But this season your hate against Theresa is ridiculous. If you are upset because her blogs clear that with her, let go and move on! You and your husband seem soo angry with the Giudice. For what? Yes, they not too bright! BUT who care, you only making yourself look foolish for stooping to their level when you pick or fuss with them. If you can’t stand to be around them then DON’T be around them. It’s really that simple. Also, your were NEVER Theresa friend. A definition of a friend is to accept a person regardless of their flaws and screw-ups. No one is perfect and YES Theresa messed up big time. But did you once sit back and wonder, “Hmm, Theresa is acting out, she may be in troubled and needs help” versus attacking her, because your feelings got hurt. It’s funny how you always got the answer to everyone else’s problem (mother hen) but can seem to put your pride aside and figure out the root of this problem with you and Theresa.
I’m not posting this to be mean or hurtful, I am a huge fan of the RHONJ. But I’m just giving you a heads up of what you are portraying on national television. Maybe you’re going through the change and if that is the case. You get a PASS, I remember when my mom went through it and it’s not an easy transition. But if you not, you should seriously learn and try practicing forgive but never forget. It will put your soul and mind at pieces.
I’m rooting for you,
You are an envious, insecure woman who is targeting Teresa because she's successful. Nobody wanted to publish your cookbook, nobody bought your purses, nobody bought your tomato sauce, and nobody wants your advice!!!
No wonder Dina no longer speaks to you. She's a successful woman with her own show, and you probably went after her too.
I'm so glad that the majority of the comments agree that Caroline is really a trouble maker. The show would be so much better without her at this point. Even her brother had to make a comment to try to stop her from egging Jackie along with regards to her friendship with Teresa. Come on Caroline mind your own buisiness!
Andy, please don't have a Reunion if Caroline is going to pull this same stuff! The last reunion was hard enough to take...do you see what took place tonight? Jacqueline repeated something to Teresa, that Kathie had said, it hurt Teresa, and she reacted in the same way, that's why she didn't toast Kathie...this show is making me so upset, really. I need to be at the Reunion with Teresa, even the score out...Italian to Italian...truth to truth. Joe andTeresa tried so hard to make this trip work..Caroline made it more miserable and hateful..ENOUGH PLZ!!!
Chirs Laurita...I like you, you seem to be looking out for your wife, even when your sister is poisoning Jacqueline....Caroline, who is trying to pick sides, make sides, and win the hate game..you my dear, and it is such a sin...you and your family are not what it's all about...you are not the show...give it up!! You have come along way in the glamour up thing, and the faces you are making are more hateful than your comments!!!
Watching the show, Caroline is giving Jacqueline such a bunch of s**t about making up with
Teresa...you are actually MAD and DISGUSTED...sad sad sad..the Guidice's have been nothing but friendly and accommodating, trying to make it a fun great trip..even your husband Al, who always seems mild mannered is chiming in so confrontational with Joe Guidice...does anyone see what is going on here? Caroline..what makes you all so perfect and above it all? Teresa crying at your bday gathering, and yet, not one remorseful ounce from the Manzo's...time for you to get your own show!!! Not good to watch!
Just rewatching some episodes and I see a "MANZOTHON" is going on.. Why would BRAVO allow these 3 to give their perspective on the past few episodes. I only seen hour 1 of the "MANZOTHON" and the 3 of them defended everything the Manzo's/Laurita's said and did...
Caroline, you are my kind of mom. If you can't be honest about your kids, with your kids, you are not doing right by your kids. I call myself my kids biggest supportive critic, I only want the best for them. Your kids seem great so you much be doing something right. Best to you and your family.
Caroline, I am sorry to report that you, my dear, are taking a beating in the court of public opinion. I am not sure why BRAVO decided to post 3 items in one day with your face postered on the items. I think your days are OVER! Be nicer.
Trippin-it I guess there weren't enough people on the program to attack Teresa so they decided to add one more. If she's a friend of Kathy's, she is not coming on to be nice to Teresa. She probably has heard an ear full. I don't know if I can watch another season of negativity, it's just not fun anymore.
Trippin-it I was hoping Caroline and especially Kathie needs to go..neither one has anything to offer, Caroline hates drama, Kathie is the sneak who is playing that card...get rid of those 2!!!
Jeannie5233 Loved this post Jeannie5233. It's interesting to me that during season 3, I found myself thinking about the novel THE LORD OF THE FLIES. A sad story about a group of boys (friends/companions) turning on one another, ultimately forming a "mob mentality." In this story, as you know, it was the "weak" boy that was sacrificed. This novel had a profound affect on me, even at the age of 12. I hadn't thought about this story in years. One night during season 3...BAM, the story flashed through my mind, and I was troubled by the memories of this novel. It was, in fact, the reason I decided I could NO longer sit back in comfort and just watch the RHONJ....and I decided to take to these blogs. I posted to bravo that I felt like I was watching a modern day version of THE LORD OF THE FLIES, and my feelings surrounding that, and what we were watching. Alas, bravo chose Not to print it. I enjoyed your summary of A TALE OF TWO CITIES, it's been a long time since i thought of the book. Thanks!
Your post is right on of course, but the Manzo's will just make fun of everything you wrote because they don't seem to have the depth it would take to even understand it.
I don't think the Manzo clan are a very literate bunch, so they probably didn't read the book or have any clue what kat44 is talking about!
Jeannie5233 When will people learn that reality shows are not actually "true reality"? Comparing RHONJ to the likes of Charles Dickens is ridiculous. Please remember that every person on this show wants to be there and therefore knows the consequences of being in such a situation, extreme vitriole and hatred included. They all benefit from being punching bags in one way or another.
facethetruth1128 she did not say it was true reality...she made cogent, intelligent points and i couldn't agree more. i have been pointing out to my husband that these shows, plus "the bachelor," "big brother," etc...are like the romans and the gladiators. we love the gore and the bloodshed and if there weren't heartbroken bachelors in the car we wouldn't like it so much. it is a sad reflection of our society...we just love "dirty laundry." i think it's because we all have insecurities and angst, and it makes us feel better to see others suffering.
An intelligent post! I enjoyed the read, the parallelism between the characters in print and those on screen gives us much to compare and think about.
Caroline, I see some people are saying "get over the cookbook thing", "you hold grudges", etc. Girl, you do what you feel is best for you. Obviously, there was more under the blanket than we know about. I can't stand these people who kiss Teresa's butt and tell her how wonderful she is and how beautiful she is, etc. She started out being okay, but as the fame and money started rolling in, she all of the sudden became a diva. Bravo doesn't show or tell everything that goes on in your lives. In my opinion, alot of it is staged for the show, but that's okay. It's entertainment. I certainly don't expect anyone who is part of a "reality show" to tell us all of their deep, dark secrets. I do know one thing though from watching RHONJ since it began. People love to see fighting, and screaming and hollering, grudges and revenge. You are my favorite because you tell it like it is. Some people get upset with you because they probably would like to be like you. Jealousy is a big word on these shows, and you're not the jealous type. I think that gets under some people's skins. I know I don't have to tell you all of these things, you already know. I just wanted to let you know that there are people out here who love you.
rozmill what exactly did Tre say in her cook book that wasn't true. What! because Caroline didn't think Tre had the balls to call her out whether it be tongue n cheek or a way for Tre to call her out regardless Caroline is not a threat to her and all she wants to do is turn everyone against her but it'll all come back to bite her in her big fat ugly lazy fat menopausing ass !!!
lcrgotitgood rozmill LOL the seeds she has tired to plant in Teresa backyard are sprouting in her own, can't wait to see her fall.
Caroline you really need to get over the whole cookbook thing. sorry, but that is such a petty issue. I'm sure you have done much worse to people in your life time. Not that we are going to know the skeletons in your closet.
kikyo guys, this is not about the cookbook thing anymore, it's deeper. It's about Caroline's sister, Deanna!!! Teresa has reached out to Caroline to put it all behind them, have a good time together, etc. Caroline, is cold hearted and a "BULLY"!! It's not a good show anymore!!!
Caroline, no matter how much you try to convince us that you are a kind, loving, fair mother and a person of great integrity and character .... Sorry, but NOT BUYING IT. Actions speak louder than words, and we now have great insight into who you really are. You have been an incredible disappointment.
Unfortunately, your tremendous ego has gotten in the way of you being a decent person.
simeon And guess what, she may be told some of these exact things when the Reunion comes around, and you know what she will say.."she doesn't care what anyone thinks or says"....and I say, if she truly feels like that, it's time for her to leave...and her kids too. They are becoming ugly to Joe/Teresa as well. So Caroline, think about we all think, you're on public television, and we DO matter!!!
How the dynamic of this show will change once you dispose of Meliisa and Kathy. Little do they realize they are just pawns for you in your quest against Teresa. You state that Melissa and Teresa are just alike, with Melissa just being a younger version yet you love Melissa and despise Teresa. Which is it? You are a master manipulator....
also, let's not forget in season 1 how she called Teresa family and now she says she never liked her... which is it?
SunnyAZ_1 OMG, I'm not the only one to see Caroline's antics....I feel validated!!! Caroline is so focused on Teresa, that she isn't seeing the big picture, she's using Melissa/Kathy to manipulate her own feelings, and Melissa/Kathy are relishing in all the things Caroline is proclaiming in how Teresa is.....fool, really being played, Caroline, and it's not about or is Teresa!!!
OK!! How does Caroline stir up so much hate for Teresa at the reunion. And throughout the show. And then puts up a blog that is basically a paragraph with a picture!!!! She tries to destroy someone in th public and then washes over the cauos she started?!?!? And people r ok with that!! T is not perfect ... But she never deserved what she got from Caroline!!!!!
I don't understand you at all. You hold on to grudges like no one i have ever seen. You need to forgive Teresa and move on. Yes what she said was not cool. You are the only one that has not let it go.
karey.jackson And she has apologized more than once.
I guess Caroline's family are the only ones that get to throw nasty digs.
