Hey guys, happy Sunday!
Mark your calendar everyone, because we finally did it! It was nice to finally see pleasant conversation and positive interaction amongst the group with no drama or fighting. I've said it before and I'll say it again, when everyone lets their guard down there's plenty of laughter and fun to be had. Unfortunately with this group sometimes it's easier said than done. For now let's be happy for the little things, baby steps, hopefully the good times will outnumber the bad by the end of the season. Time will tell.
I'm glad Jacqueline and Teresa hashed out their differences, some believe that this was a bad idea, but Jac and Teresa travel in the same circles and a run in was inevitable. Better to have them meet and be civil than risk the chance of a scene. I think we've had enough of those. I'm not going to say things are perfect between the two, but civil is good for now.
Do you realize Christopher is the only in your family thats not cranky?! What the hell? Al is reeaal cranky, your cranky Lauren is beyond cranky and Albie is starting to sound like a crankpot himself! Jesus! You guys are all just realllllly cranky! Over it.....
I think you're okay. But I wish you hadn't been so horrible to Danielle. She just wanted to be loved. Your sister Dina however seems very mean. Its shocking to me that you and her are sisters. She's a quiet mean, which is the worst kind. Nobody's perfect.
You lied. You never told Teresa she had to admit her wrongs to Jacqueline. She just had to call her. Stop with the Queen of the Hill crap.
Watched last week and loved the framed photo you gave Greg. When my Mom passed away she took each of my siblings into her room and told us to always "Take care of each other", so when I saw that it reminded me of her words which each of us took to heart and do. Is there any way I could get a copy of that picture for each of my siblings as a rememberence of our Mom, you should sell that on your web site loved it!
Just want to say I still think your wonderful. Although Kathy will give you a run for your money when it comes to common sense. I guess you two have enough to balance out the others. Glad all is well. I too was "Back Home" in Jersey last week. I hate the fact that I moved out of the state. When it comes to Family/Friends, there's nothing like Jersey. Don't ever leave. Good Luck...
Caroline, when are you and Dina going to bury the past and start being a family again? I've heard you say that your brother has been hurt as well. I don't even know what happened to you guys, guess I wasn't watching back then. Families are all we have, swallow your pride and get things fixed. You'll regret it if you don't.
I watched the season 1 reunion - it is so sad to see where this has gone - it was so fun to watch I wish you and Jac would be like you were before.
One thing I need to get off my chest is a comment that your older son said, he made a statement about the new business and he said on TV that this place is not for the construction type of customer, we want a higher class of people, for me this comment really was a low blo, has he forgotten that the classer type of people felt he wasn't smart enough to stay in school!! Shame on you, you always say your kids a great, well this proved you wrong. There is nothing wrong with a person working with their hands, he needs to say he sorry for this action of his.
Dear Caroline I know you don't talk to Dina but I have an idea for her,I'm vwatching an old episode of when Dina had her charity thing for children with cancer. I think she could make more money if she could some how include online buyers. I saw some great items that I would love to buy.its just an idea that came to me, hope it could some how work.Big Fan!
Emotional fulfillment should come from people in your life, family preferably, not co workers....when Albert walks into work, he gets a charge because it is so familiar, it fits like an old sweatshirt that has been worn in and out....that is going to get harder and harder on you, because your kids are in free flight mode....even if you talked to them several times a day, you would never fill up your time with them....as you did as they were growing up....so listen up.....Albert is supposed to be front stage center right now....no kiddies to take to the orthodontist, no tuition is being paid.....why work as if the Brownstone will dry up to mere bricks if he is not there over 40 hrs? Seen this, done that, sold that s*itty t shirt......get this handled now Caroline, before you are in the middle of your 5th decade....it takes some people a long time to see this personality trait, but if you grew up with it around you, it is easy to recognize early on in life.....and avoid pitfalls others have made before you...clean up this mess, and let the Gorgas and Guidices handle their own issues....throw eggs at a street person if you have to get publicity to stay focused in this show, but get rid of other peoples troublesome trivia, and align your game pieces...hitting people in public always gets you noticed when you are a celebrity....so I suggest you throw a tantrum and let TMZ get in your face, before long, the show will focus around you and what you are liable to do next, rather than focusing on a dysfunctional brother, sister relationship....we are all over them....please....bring the Manzos to the forefront.....Slap a sales clerk, throw meatballs at a repairman, but do something to get us talking.....thank you for listening to my random thoughts....
So when Albie was dating Lindsey you wanted him to focus on his career...now you want him to get a life....I bet if it would've been Alexa Ray Joel he was dating you would have no issues with anything...
Caroline, I think that its grate you came back to the real you again. This is the Caroline I loved to watch. Not last season full of rage. Thanks for being back to the real you.
You said you want your husband to slow down with work but his answer was the best! "If I knew you guys didn't need me for financial backup I would" ...That was the most honest answer I have heard come out of any cast member. Go Al!!!
Greg is a very negative toxic person, always with a nasty comment and trash talking someone behind their back.
He fit right in with the Manzos. I wish they would go with him.
Greg will be missed. I found him to be such a nice person with good instinct about people. I will never forget when he was so disgusted with the way Teresa treated Kathy on the vacation trip to the island (whereever). He knew right away that Kathy was a sincere, sweet person. He did not kiss Teresa's feet, and the kool-aid drinkers cannot stand that. He was NEVER negative and obnoxious......just truthful and playful.
Is it just me are last two season when Lauren was going through her weight problems her boyfriend was there for her telling her how pretty she was and was in most of her scenes. Now this season she had the surgery and it's like she can't stand him anymore. I don't she him taping with her anymore and it seems like she wants to call it off. Surely I hope Caroline will talk to her but if not her lost.
Personally, I am happy to see Greg leave. He was very negative and obnoxious. I feel like he encouraged your sons to be sarcastic and disrespectful I won't miss him.
Caroline.......you inspire me to want to be a better Mother. The love you have for your children is endless as well as your patience and acceptance for others is truly refreshing. You make me smile.
Good for Greg! To think you want him back in Jersey is only b/c you are selfish. If you were his mother, you would get a summer home in San Francisco! I hope your kids see this as an example to leave mommy and daddy and grow up already!
Im not trying to judge these people, but is it just me or does Lauren look grumpy & miserable this season??
Gregg is an idiot. Anyone who has who has lost a love one to cancer would agree. Hope Gregg stays gone.
Caroline...you really need to get a life...this is unhealthy for you...you need friends and hobbies....or get a real job...you are on twitter all day and face book all day...you are around your kids all day...I know that your husband works 24/7, seven days a week...but this is getting really sad to watch...All I have seen from the Manzo clan, is how hard Al works and how hard the kids and wife squander his money because the kids don't really want to work a real job...they are lazy like Momma Manzo...just saying...
Did you say Greg and Albie have been friends since they were small? Do you want to rephrase that? He said in an interview he met Albie in college and never knew him growing up. Why did you infuse yourself into the boys' going a part, speech, and gift? (horrible gift) Why is everything abt you?
your quite the drama queen. at 1st I thought you had a strong leadership quality about you but now I see drama, drama, drama, the speech to Greg was a little too dramatic for me!
From the very first season, I saw you for who you really are. Other viewers thought you were awesome, but I saw how you went AFTER Danielle and then manipulated Jaq to do the same. You thought you could do the same to Tre, but the viewers finally caught on...this is who you are: a sad, manipulative angry person with a horrible marriage. You still hate Teresa, but are pretending because of the backlash from last season. Still can't fool me Caroline.
@Down_home not as thick as caroline thought
@bravofan12 Thanks for stating the obvious. I, too, do not understand the turn-around. Last year, Albie had no time for a girlfriend; now he should??? What the hell? Maybe, it's time to let go of the apron strings - isn't he 27 years old? Gosh!! Enough.
Caroline, you are back to your wonderful self this year. I love it!!!
@Leopard_Man_ one more thats with you
I agree with you wholeheartedly...
@rosyposy him and teresa actually used to be really good friends...i feel he was being extra nice to kathy and melissa on purpose, he didn't seem genuine...i thought sometimes he was rude and obnoxious to lauren, eventhough i'm not a lauren fan, i felt bad for her.
If that's the case then she's shallow. She has always needed extra attention and has been whiny up until just recently with the new business. So jealous of her brothers though.... sad!
@TeflonDiva84 i agree, in the reunion when she talked about her surgery she said she got it because she was so unhappy with herself and felt that's why she was being rude and fighting with her brothers all the time...Now that she got it done, I see the same Lauren, i dont see her changing. i see her with the same bitter personality.
you're so right
@CE_Landucci Every Season....
She looks grumpy and miserable every season.
Nothing new there
@trudel yea that cancer comment was not necessary
...because it is.
@shysharon Caro thinks she can quell the rumors by basically saying Albie became friends with Greg before he knew Greg was gay, because they were just kids. Unfortunately for her, we can keep better track of her lies than she can. We don't care if Greg is gay or straight, he is a horrible person either way and he and the Manzoids are all childish and mean.
@shysharon she just doesn't want to hear the 'rumors' about albie...she's so controlling. who does she think she's fooling?
I also think she manipulated Jac against Teresa...
the reason why she is pretending to like Teresa...is because she needs Teresa to sell her lame book...on Amazon...Caroline book is right next to Teresa book...not even in the same league as Teresa...Just saying
@jodymb61 and she changed her 'tune' this season because of her 'new book'...she needs buyers lol
I was thinking more about her gay brother then whether Greg is a good person or not! If she was trying to make it seem like Albie was Greg's friend before he knew Greg was gay, that would be quite a slap in her brother's face!
if so, then that's really not cool! I'll stop there.
Shallow personality.... Vito, if I was 30 years younger.... lol You are a very nice young man and your parents have raised you well. Carolyn did well with her boys but Lauren's a handful.....
Vito doesn't have to run because Lauren is going to leave him. Now that she has lost weight she doesn't want the nice chubby guy anymore. She has making hints she wants to run!
