Caroline Manzo "When One Door Closes" ... They say when one door closes, another one opens; I think that’s the best way to define tonight’s episode. The tides have certainly changed, and I believe the dynamic of the show will change as well, do you agree? I felt bad for Jacqueline, but at the same time I was happy for the Gorgas and Wakiles. I meant what I said when I told Kathy and Joe that removing myself from the situation could only help in their healing process with the Giudices. There’s no denying that now as I watch from week to week that my instinct was correct. We’ll see where it goes from here. I’ve said it a million times, we fight big and we love big, but in the end there’s always forgiveness. I’m happy to see that Joe and Teresa are going to therapy. I don’t know what the outcome was, so I guess I’ll find out when you guys do. I was also happy to see Kathy and Melissa respond in a positive way to T’s request; all you can do is try, right? Baby steps. READ MORE
Kathy Wakile "An Epiphany" I think we have all learned a few things with this week's episode... When your friends and family stick their necks out for you and try to help, it can make for a challenging relationship. It’s hard to turn your back and just forget what has been done and said, whether to your face or behind your back. It’s so difficult to juggle it all and it makes you wonder, why do you even have to? Wouldn’t it be so much easier if there were more honesty, more communication, and far less pettiness and animosity? It seems like there has been an epiphany here in New Jersey overnight. I was certainly skeptical about the shift in sentiment coming from my cousin Teresa, considering that just a day before (to my surprise) she was on Jacqueline’s deck telling her and Caroline that I was fake. (Well, not in those exact words.) But when she actually did call me and suggest that we meet, I was genuinely happy to hear her voice. I imagine that everyone has their time to feel ready to make amends, and I have always been willing to go in that direction. I wasn’t happy about the tabloid articles, especially that things were said about me that were absolutely untrue and hurtful, but I truly wanted to put those feelings aside and look at the bigger picture.
