Melissa Gorga The Vow - I’m not going to deny what Teresa said to my husband bothered me, but on the night of the solstice party I had no intention to talk about anything negative. As soon as I got there I sat right at Teresa’s table and talked to her normally and wanted to again just have a good night. Obviously that isn’t what happened as I was summoned to Teresa not once but TWICE that night! Read Melissa Gorga's Blog And Leave Her A Comment!
Teresa Giudice An Open Book - I don't like watching myself from a year ago on Housewives, because I did let some of the drama get to me. It's hard not to when it seems like everyone around you is doing their best to pick on you, bait you, and try and make you look bad. That's not what I'm about. You know me -- I react but I don't set out to act out. I don't plot or try and pretend I'm something I'm not. My family and friends know it too, and they seem to be having a great time trying to get me to "react." Of course, I'm not perfect, and sometimes they do find just the right thing to get me upset, but I am proud of the fact that I walk away, and I don't do the same back to them.
To answer all of your questions, I don't think I'm being ganged up on or bullied. I just think the other cast members know that blowing little things in my life out of proportion and constantly talking about me all day takes the focus off things they don't like in their own lives. That's fine. I can take it! Read Teresa's Blog And Leave Her A Comment!
Jacqueline Laurita Spin City - This blog will be hard for me to write, because although I am trying my best to be fair and see things from all angles, I have strong opinions about what I felt was going on at this point in time that I want to share with you. However I'm afraid of sounding too one-sided and anti-Teresa, but allow me anyway to break down this ridiculous debacle from my viewpoint so you all understand it more clearly...

Kathy Wakile Cinema Verite - Hey gang! WOW. I don’t know about you, but I’m speechless and don’t know where to start. The comedy and drama of this episode couldn’t help but remind me of my love for TV and movies. So, I have to start at the beginning and reference some of my favorite titles.
Let’s start with Sibling Rivalry. I have to admit I did feel bad for Lauren when Albie and Chris were joking with her and Vito. I know how older brothers can be and can understand how it feels to look up to them and want their approval. It’s especially difficult when you’re starting a new diet plan and not really feeling like yourself. I know they were just kidding, but Lauren, you were being a great sport about it. I love the way she brushed it off and gave it right back to them. This is the same kind of joking that goes on with Rich and his siblings, but the result is always the same -- a lot of love.

Caroline Manzo Like You Mean It - First let me tell you that whatever comes out of my mouth I mean. If I looked angry I was. If I looked bored, I was. If I looked frustrated, I was. If I looked happy, I was. I know that we speak about my body going through “changes,” but let me make something very clear; in no way shape or form will I ever use this as an excuse for my comments or behavior. If I behaved like a bitch, it was most likely because I was a bitch. There, I said it. In true bitch fashion by the way. Clearly my attitude towards Teresa has changed and with good reason. I won’t be a soldier in her army. Again, Jacqueline and I were brought into a situation to “fix” things. I found out very early on this was nothing more than a war tactic on Teresa’s part. Remember, there were never supposed to be sides -- Teresa clearly states in this episode that Jacqueline needs to “pick a side.” I ask you this -- Why? Why do we have to pick a side? I assessed and made a decision not to enlist. I don’t like war, and if my approach seems less than loyal to some viewers, all I can say is I am what I am and it is what it is. I stand by my decision. We are all entitled to our own opinion, that’s what makes the world go round, right? Having said that, I can fully respect and understand anyone’s view; whether you love me or hate me, it’s yours to do and think what you wish. For those that understand, thank you, for those who don’t, no hard feelings. Read Caroline's Blog And Leave Her A Comment!
