I have been friends with Dina for over 15 years -- I met her when she was pregnant with Lexi! -- and I was friends with her first. She introduced me to her family. She's Audriana's godmother. When she decided to leave the RHONJ show, I publicly and privately supported her, as I do with everything she does. I think she's beautiful and talented, and I love her. When she had a falling out with Caroline, she stopped talking to me too for a while, not because we were fighting, but because she knew I had to film with Caroline and Jacqueline and she didn't want to put me in the middle. I have Dina's back, but I learned a long time ago not to take sides in family fights, because when the family makes up, you look like the jerk. I have always hoped Dina and Caroline, and Caroline and her other siblings, would get along. For Caroline to say I have anything to do with her and her family's fights is just crazy. Crazy, crazy, crazy. Dina said herself I had nothing to do with it. I don't know why Caroline can't just own up to her own problems, but I guess blaming me for everything helps her sleep at night.
I'm happy that the Fabellini party was such a success and the drink itself too! It's doing so well and we're about to go national! We have a new website with information about the drink (it's only 127 calories per serving with 12% alcohol!) and where to buy it. Thank you all for supporting me... for better or for worse! Here's to a future full of better!
