Caroline, I just want to say to you that, I love the fact that you speak your mind & the truth. You show that you have morals, self respect, pride & self worth. You love your family & yourself & it shows. Honesty & truth is what matters to you & that's why you are my favorite!! I loved that you were the ONLY person (couple) that got the horse experiment at the spa out here in Az.. Also could feel that Al & Wyatt had that connection right when they looked into each other eyes. You are my hero & I wish that I had you as a role model growing up. You are the only sane housewife on any of the shows!! Good luck with Dina :)  Just started watching the show on a regular basis & only watched it in the past BECAUSE of you and I will definitely be buying your book, simply because you wrote it!! Keep telling it like it is!! Lots of hugs, Debby

Caroline, you are the fake one.  You need to handle your own family drama!  I don't know why you are considered the "level-headed" one when you don't even talk to members of your own family.  To me that is very disturbing!

Andy, finally gave his favorite housewife family her own show.  It always amazed me when people always identified RHoNJ with Teresa, but then Andy would have to always throw in Caroline's name.  I know I will not be watching the show and I personally feel it would be a one year show. Then again even if it fails the ratings, Andy will leave it on.  The show will not survive without Teresa.  Don't think Andy/Production didn't engineer Caroline taken part in Teresa's family. Pardon any errors.

I love Carolineand have a great amount of respect for what she brings to the table.  I think she was right to go there in the "zen" moment.  We have all seen the happy happy before aand known it was fake or for he moment.  I think Caroline was trying to get the Gorga/Guidice's  to be a united family once and for all by standing together against the Penny's, Kim D's and Jan's in the Jersey landscape.  Not sure how it will all end just yet.

I think Caroline needs another story line.  Maybe bring in some of her family she does NOT speak with next season and let them work out their problems on this show, maybe with Dr. V or the horse whisperer. How would her parents feel about her doing that to her siblings?  Another story line might be big Al and his lady friends. How would her grown-ass kids feel? OR maybe a story line on what it was like for Al growing up with Tiny Manzo as his father?  Lots and lots of story lines for words of wisdom that could be explored and the viewers would love to see and hear about..That would be a great reality show.

Sweet Caroline, You need to stay out of other's business. EVEN if Teresa or whoever calls you in to rescue. The fact is, you have you own family to tend to, the other family's don't really need an old mother hen in thier business even though they contine to call (let them deal w/ it on their own, they ARE adults). You and your husband should be vacationing and spending some special times together, as well as attention on other matters in your own home, family and business. It appears you enjoy getting your nose in other's affairs, so knock it off carrot top. Hope to see you and Al go on some romantic mountain horseback rides that includes camping, maybe some amusemet park fun, a cabin somewhere just you two can fish and be together. And, bring new people in the show from other places that are new and interesting.

You have enough on your own family plate.  I can't believe all the nonsense your group has.  It is and has become pathetic.  I only wish Bravo gives us more of their better shows....getting soooo tired of this high school drama.

Bravo give us more of Jeff....and the real estate guys.

Caroline's new tag line should be:  "Desperate to keep me and my mooching brood relevant"

Don't you get it Caroline, just sit back and watch.  Let Joe, Joe, Teresa and Melissa figure out their own mess.  You are getting yourself upset for what nothing,obviously they don't care about making up. Just stay out of it and when they call to drag you into it say NO Thank. The only way you can be a good friend is to be a good listener but make no comments or give advice.  Remember to say, it is your life you need to do what is good for you. When they realize no one really cares they will all stop and make up and just think you will have been happy all the time in your own life.

There is a deli called Manzo's in West Palm Beach, Florida. I really liked the horse man Wyatt too. You were correct in calling out the zen moment.

missed ya, Caroline - please keep blogging.  Your group needs your perspective!

Instead of being so dead set on ruining everyone's good time on the last night to bring out Melissa and Teresa's "truth" why didn't you bring up yours and Al's?  You obviously thought you had an issue with Penny or you would have ragged on Jan as well.  Could it be you thought she had something to do with Al's girl Jill?

If you really call it like it is, why haven't you had a talk with Melissa? You come off as a hypocrite with your own agenda.

Caroline, I really do admire you as a mother, wife, and friend. It's clear that you are an amazing woman. I am begging you, please stay out of the family drama with your friends. I feel like there is a lot more going on than we are seeing as viewers.

I find it comical that Melissa got checked on always falling back on Joe. Pretty funny how this season and the one before she didn't accomplish much without him. I get when your married it's a team effort. Then again in a marriage you are still individual people, who are coming together as one. Don't trip though Melissa, you still ride your husbands coat tail.

I'm very happy to see that Al opened up. I feel like the truth about his past gives strength to those we have been through abuse as well. I wish that Al opened up more, because he really has an amazing soul.

I don't know what you are doing or why you are doing it!  What I do know is it's time everyone started seeing Melissa for what she really is & quit blaming everything on Teresa!  If you can make that happen, then keep on doing what you are doing!  If you can't make that happen, then stick to your own families problems & keep away from everybody else's problems (even if they ask you to)!  They need professional help whether they want it or not!  My best to you & yours!  God Bless!!!

Caroline, I think you were just cutting through the BS.

We learned that Caroline's husband is her heart and that she hurts when he hurts - not much zen there. And if that wasn't enough, we learned that Caroline still believes she can butt into other peoples' relationships and issues.

If Caroline wants to be in the fields of psychology and therapy and actually help people, then it is time to go to college, get a degree and go interview for a job! She has the time to do this and her family will benefit from her being too busy with her own life to interfere and lecture them on their life choices.

Goldiecoo, well Andy is giving Caroline her own show about her family (boring), I will not be watching. THis is what is was always about, she was always jealous that the Show was about Teresa. She showed her real colors.  Andy need to work on other shows instead of spinoffs. How creative of him with his favorite family housewife.

 Do your husband Al a favor and get off of reality tv.

 @joanne.poccia  What you need to understand is, those of us with more than 30 years experience on planet Earth ARE the Wise. Years of experience make us Wise.   When we see younger, less wise people making huge mistakes....we rend to try to make them SEE.  Usually, it doesnt work....as when Caroline tries to wake Theresa up....but at least she tried.

She's all about trashing Tre and her family but when it comes to her?? Hell no, she won't dare go there.

The biggest hyprcript in the franchise as far as I'm concerend.

She's unbearable...

@Luckyla good point. You know the manzo's and wakile's are fake because you never hear them criticizing joe or Mel. Is Caroline really ok with Joey's violence?? Her kids are not like that at all. Seriously, is that guy on roids?

 @dwaters1952@yahoo.com Open your eyes.  Teresa is behind all of this, she's running scared now and doesn't know what to do.  She has to confront these women and she knows they'll give her up.

 @sincethefirstepisode Which Manzo are you?  What I see are people, not necessarily defending Teresa, but calling Caroline's words, actions and motives into question.  There's nothing wrong with that. 

 

Caroline has set herself up to be the truth telling, Let Me Tell You Something, Queen. 

 

It's too bad her actions and words don't support the image she is trying to project, but that's on her, not on the people that comment here.

 @WCW If you watch the show and remember correctly, Teresa PULLED Caroline into the family drama.  She CALLED her from the therapy session and asked her to get up there.  Don't go putting it off on Caroline when it was your Idol Teresa.

 Yes, Carolyn is not as powerful  and influentual as she likes to think she is...if it wasn't for  the Brownstone and her husband she would probably be working in a clothing shop. Whatever happened to her radio spot?

@chickencounter
@chickencounter

 @Goldiecoo  @chickencounter   Rumor has it that Al Sr. has had a long term relationship with a lady named Jill.  Rumors were flying in Jersey and Caroline and Al thought Penny was the source which is why they wanted everyone to go after her.  But, she is not the source.

 @maskedblogger  @WCW Actually, the only reason Teresa called Caroline was because Caroline inserted herself in the middle of the mess when she first met with Joe Gorga, then Teresa.

 @maskedblogger

 Delusional and juvenile much!? Teresa asked Caroline ONCE to help with her brother (and Caroline wasn't even necessary then as Dr V accomplished a real break through to help Joey and Teresa fix their relationship!! When did Teresa give Caroline carte blanc to jump in when ever Caroline  wants to now?

 @wellmary  @maskedblogger  @WCW

 Wellmary is right, the benevolent Caroline in an attempt to either mend her image or make herself relevant this season asked to meet real housewife Joey for a drink, much to Melissa's dismay.  When looking at Joey, Caroline said she could see the hurt and anguish on her face...  therefore Caroline inserted herself in the mix and volunteered to try with Teresa.  It is really all very contrived isn't it.
