Melissa snarked Caroline because she was upset that Caroline wanted to meet privately with her husband Joe Gorga to discuss the drama with his parents and sister Teresa. Melissa felt that Caroline was putting her in the middle of the family issues.
Caroline was surprised and hurt by Melissa’s reaction because Melissa never addressed her directly. Caroline wished that Melissa had talked to her about it so she could explain herself. However, Caroline respected Melissa’s feelings and chose not to dwell on it.
It is uncertain whether all the ladies will still be in a good place when the reunion airs. While there has been some positive progress between Teresa, Jacqueline, and Kathy, Caroline cannot predict how things will unfold as the season progresses. She honestly admits that she doesn’t know where they will all stand when the reunion comes.
