The third season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey ended with Caroline reading a comment Teresa made about her being “one-sixteenth Italian” in her latest cookbook. It was an unnecessary comment made from Teresa but taken to far from Caroline. Caroline talks about the cookbook comments to North Jersey and talks who will return to the fifth season of New Jersey!
Caroline started off by suggesting that the issues with Teresa were beyond the cookbook comments saying, “I would like to believe that anybody that has watched since Season 1 or even Season 2 would get a fair assessment of our personalities, and say, ‘Gee, what would cause Caroline to react like this toward someone that she always supported?’ And I’d like to think that they don’t look at things at face value … because it’s so out of character for both myself and Jacqueline to make this turn.”
Caroline adds, “I think it will be a very revealing season and a lot of truth will be told. You’re going to see a lot more of us, I guess more raw, I should say.… And we’re all gonna have our good and our bad. The good, the bad and the ugly, it’s all there, and every one of us will be touched by one of those emotions or all of those emotions.”
When asked if Jacqueline Laurita really quit and if she’ll be on the fifth season of RHONJ, Caroline says, “When we shot the [third season] reunion, the fourth season was already shot. The truth of the matter is, none of us know. We don’t get our options until after the season is finished. So, I don’t think it’s even on Bravo’s radar at this point. They want to see how the [fourth] season plays out and how characters develop or not, and decisions will not be made for months to come.”
And what about the “one-sixteenth Italian” comments made about Caroline in Teresa’s cookbook? Caroline says, “First of all, I’m full part Italian. But I’m an American citizen. I was born in this country. My lineage is Italian. And that’s such nonsense to eliminate someone from your life because of something like that. … It was a fifth-grade remark. You know what I mean?”
Lastly Caroline was asked about her relationship with her sister Dina and how she said they weren’t talking because of Teresa. “You know what? That’s something that’s very, very personal to me.” Caroline says. “It’s my baby sister, and I will take that beating. I will not hit back. So I’m not gonna comment on that.”
I will say I don’t agree with Teresa making comments about Caroline in her cook book and I also don’t agree with the way Caroline acted in the reunion! I personally always respected Caroline and thought she was a dedicated mother and actually acted her age. I don’t know what I feel after the reunion! Who’s ready for RHONJ this sunday? I know I am!
