Teresa and Nicole, I know exactly what you mean because I am from a Puerto Rican family and I also went to an all girls Catholic school and I don't regret going there at all. Those were some of the best days of my life because I got to know some girls who were wonderful and the discipline made me the person I am today. My family is very Catholic and we are very close so in many ways we are very similar to the Italians because to us FAMILY IS EVERYTHING! I look forward to seeing what unfolds on this season of RHONJ, I'm sure it will be filled with a lot of DRAMA! I was born and raised in NY but I have lived in NJ since 2000 and I love the quiet. I wish both of you much luck in your time on the show. Take care.
