For those of you who are new to my blog; this is Caroline’s blog from the BravoTV.com website. I added my thoughts in bold so that you that you can read the bullshit along with me.
I Am What I Am
Caroline Manzo explains why she didn’t hug Danielle at the end of the reunion. (Because she offered a handshake and not a hug?)
Hello again! 16 episodes have come and gone, and you’re still with us! For that I’m sending each and every one of you a huge hug! Thank you, thank you, thank you. (You’re welcome. But it’s not you we stuck around for. We all just really like to watch Teresa freak out on Danielle)
I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I’m really not interested in going over the whos, whats, whys, and wheres of the reunion. I think it’s all been said before.
I want to address my behavior and how I felt throughout the filming process, and then I’m going to pack up my Season 2 feelings and memories and put them on a shelf where they belong.
Week after week I watched someone accuse me of bullying, (which is what you did) physical threats (Dina threatened, and don’t even get me started on what Ashley actually DID), stalking, (while no one technically stalked her, Jac and T’s behavior/obsession could be considered “stalker-ish”) defamation (what all of you did), and God knows what else (I know what else – being a liar, a hypocrite, a puppet master, and a clown.) Week after week I watched that very same person do the EXACT thing she was accusing ME of to ME, MY HUSBAND, AND CHILDREN. (Did I miss the episode where Danielle bullied, physically threatened, stalked, and defamed Caroline, her husband, and her children?)
The reunion was my time to clear the air. (You mean roll your eyes?) It was my time to call her out on everything she’d said and done. I was at times rude, immature, and overbearing. (that’s putting it mildly) When the “apology” came along I knew it was fake and empty. If I thought for a moment, a millisecond, that there was any sincerity in it I would have accepted it. To accept her apology would have made me a hypocrite. (No, accepting the apology would have made you the bigger person, your constant defense of Teresa is what makes you a hypocrite.) I meant what I said when I told Jacqueline and Teresa that I hope they can step away from all the drama. (No you didn’t. You live for the drama. It’s the most interesting thing going on in your life) That’s all I ever wanted. (Yes, clearly that is what you wanted during all of your kitchen gossip sessions and when you encouraged Jac and Teresa to go to the fashion show) For those of you who believe I was angry at J. and T. for hugging her, you have it all wrong.(I don’t think so) I get why they hugged her — they wanted to end it. Good for them. I handle things differently. I wanted it to end too, but not on a lie. (you want it to end when you call the person garbage and they admit that you’re right) I’ve said it time and again; at the end of the day all you have is your name and reputation. (Which you managed to destroy this season) I’ve been able to keep a pretty good handle on it for 49 years. (I guess 49 years wasn’t a bad run. I hope you enjoyed it while it lasted) I’m not about to give it up for “15 minutes” of fame. (Nope, you gave it up for 2 years of fame and another year on the way) Whatever I do or say will always be on my terms and no one else’s. (Because you are a controlling bitch) So if you think I’m a bitch, so be it. (Read my mind!) If you think I’m the best thing since sliced bread, (Lmao, yeah… ok) thank you. At least I can honestly say I am what I am. (And “what” are you exactly?)
Hope to see you next year…. (I hope to see Melissa next year)
