Caroline Manzo Speaks About Relationship With Sister Dina Manzo

Manzo

Caroline Manzo appeared on Watch What Happens Live Sunday night after season finale of Manzo’d With Children and part one of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. After Caroline’s sister Dina opened up about her family feud, viewers were interested to hear Caroline’s reaction.

Andy asks Caroline to respond to what Teresa Giudice had to say throughout part one of the reunion including that she has never hit any of her cast member’s below the belt with her words.

“Of course she hit below the belt,” Caroline said. “We all hit below the belt. I wish she would just admit that you hit below the belt. We saw it, there’s no denying what we see.”

As far as what Teresa had to say about Jacqueline, Caroline says, “I think she’s trying to project that she doesn’t care but it’s clear that she does care. She gets emotional when she reads a text and she can’t talk about it or she gets teary eyed. I think she does care she just doesn’t want to say it.”

Next, Andy asks Caroline to react to what Dina said about her family during the RHONJ reunion.

“It’s true I didn’t invite her to the engagement party and for good reason,” Caroline says. “First of all I’m embarrassed, I’m mortified, I hate the fact that I have to say this because you and I both know that I have come at you hard when we try to discuss this, but I feel like I have to defend myself now at this point…”

“Over the past four or five years Dina has never attended one family function. We’ve got nieces and nephews that are 3, 4, 5-years old and 9-months old that Dina doesn’t know. She didn’t go to my brother Jamie’s wedding. Babies were born, baptisms, graduations, birthdays… not just me, not just Chris… my nieces, nephews along the line. So to single that out [Lauren’s engagement party] is insane.”

“When Lauren got engaged, ten minutes after the ring was on her finger, the first person she called was Lexi. And Lexi said, ‘I’m so happy for you. My mom says congratulations.’ That was in November the party was in April. From November to April… not a word,” Caroline continued.

Andy brought up the fact that Dina seems interested in reconciling with Caroline.

“No. I am a package deal. I come with everybody,” Caroline insists. “You may have issues with somebody but you don’t dismiss someone from your family and you don’t say, ‘I’m giving you a choice, I’m giving you an option. The only way we can have a relationship is if you cut somebody out of our life.’ That’s my brother’s wife and Chris was given the same ultimatum. And I want you to understand the gravity of that. This is a man that has a son that has special needs and your saying he needs to leave his wife in order for you to have a relationship with him.”

“The same little boy that she walked passed the other day at a party and how you can not take that baby and hug him and tell him you love him… I don’t understand that,” Caroline continues. “So I have to say I don’t want the cooking show. I don’t care about TV, I don’t care what the papers say. I want my family back and I have done everything in my power to make that happen and so have the rest of us… Dina has to grow up.”

Dina took to Twitter to respond to Caroline’s statements.

“I didn’t even see Nic at the wedding please stop using this child in all of this!” Dina wrote. “I spend EVERY holiday with family just not THAT click. There’s 11 of us and my parents.”

“I’m very different then them. I’m the white sheep. I wish you all knew some of my other beautiful siblings. I thank God for them. Nite Nite,” Dina wrote.

Jacqueline wrote, “Wow! @CarolineManzo I know how hard that was for you to speak up. I Love you!XOXO! Hope it can be put to rest now.Too much hurt for too long.”

After WWHL was over, Caroline and Dina’s mother Nettie Laurita took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the intense night.

“It’s now time to take my meds, I think maybe a double dose. Thank you,” Nettie tweeted.

  1. I love how Caroline was all over Giudice and Gorgas last few seasons and trying to mend their relationship and in some cases even acting as if she does not understand how family can be so torn apart, while having this huge black hole in her own family.

    For me it is absolutely crazy to try and force someone to like someone else, especially family, it can be tricky, you are born into family, you do not chose it, so it is MUCH MUCH harder to navigate the differences… you can chose friends, but you can not chose your family.

    Let them all live their life and disappear from tv screens, especially Manzod with potatoes… god that show is not interesting, nor is the last season of RHONJ.

    Next!

  2. This woman is unbelievable! Here her sister is saying she loved her on INTERNATIONAL TV, that she didn’t realise it was as serious as they other’s have made it to be and that she’s hurt by being attacked on twitter and what does she do? Attack her and defend the crazy person who is verbally abusing her!!! CRAZY! Check out Dina’s blog video – I don’t really follow her but I watched this one!

    1. She did realize that is was that serious?!!! She has had no contact with her family, her parents are in turmoil about it, the kids are uncomfortable and caught in the middle and she left a show that she was a cast member on behind it and she didn’t know it was that serious? Dina is a nutcase!

  3. Oh, brother, are you kidding me? Dina says she “loves” her sister and Chris. Yeah, Dina sure loved Caroline in season 4 when she went on INTERNATIONAL TV to trash her with Teresa, and to mock her this season in Florida. Dina has said on INTERNATIONAL TV that certain family members were dead to her, and Miss Love and Zen has missed family weddings and birthdays and graduations, and has openly been hostile to Caroline for nearly 5 years. Now, suddenly she decides, Oh, hey, I don’t like the consequences of MY OWN choices (snubbing my siblings and black-balling them from my life) -after 4 1/2 years of boycotting weddings, birthdays, graduations etc. Now- NOW I’m going to get insulted that I didn’t get invited to this certain event (!) and not only that, I’m going to call out my sister on INTERNATIONAL TV about it (and tear up and everything, and get sympathetic looks from my felonis friend Tre) -cuz that’s how much I love my sister! Bullsh*t! If- IF Dina really wanted to put thing right, she would have picked up the phone and had a conversation with Caroline, with Chris, with Jamie and with the other family members she has issues with. That’s GW you do it. She bitterly complained about Jaq’s use of Twitter – which she ironically and as usual HYPOCRITICALLY jumped right on after Caroline was on WWHL, saying it doesn’t help issues and she is right (take your own advice Dina) but you can’t heal anything on INTERNATIONAL TV either or by ignoring what you did.

  4. I found both of their stories to be convincing, but obviously only one can be true. Given that Dina is lined up with a convicted felon (who if you will notice she defended in the reunion as a good and honest girl) while Caroline is lined up with seemingly the entire resto of their family, I tend to believe Caroline.

    1. I couldn’t believed that Dina advocated for Teresa, who the world know that she committed fraud and stole money from the bank to keep up her life style…………Dina jumped to Teresa’s defence on every comments made…..I felt sick for a woman to defend a woman who committed fraud and also contribution to the falling of the US economy

      Teresa is such a bitter woman that you could have seen it in her body language. She looks like she wanted to burst out with anger…… Why is it that Andy so sad for her, that her didn’t called her out on her responds to Melessa………Teresa is such a proud woman……..she took and echo Dina to put down Melessa………but Melessa was very classy and took the high road………It seems like Teresa and Dina maybe having an lesbian relationship.

    2. And Caroline is lined up with people who stole from charities and are accused of misusing 8 million worth of business funds…. How do we know Caroline is lined up with the rest of the family? She hasn’t been invited to many family functions apparently. She’s working it to set up her kids.

  5. Teresa was absolutely EVIL to Caroline, and for her own sister, Dina, to sit and smirk with Teresa against her sister made me sick. When you’re the problem and everybody else isn’t you don’t call yourself the “white sheep” of the family. Delusional, Dina.

      1. Either you never watched the seasons preceding this, or you have a different standard of behavior than I do. I usually side with the ones not headed for jail, but that’s me.

        1. I’ve watched the seasons and at no time was Teresa evil to Caroline… who’s best mate served time in the slammer…

          1. I wish I could cut and paste a montage for here’s just one: Theresa claimed her hurt was the greatest agony for her and her parents over the rift between her brother and her. Yet, at the same time on reunions Theresa taunted a similarly suffering Caroline with jabs about how Dina didn’t want anything to do with Caroline. Those jabs were meant to hurt to the core.

  6. I JUST SAW REUNION #1, AND ONCE AGAIN I WOULD OF LOVED 2 BE ABLE 2 JUMP THROUGH THE SCREEN AND GET MY HANDS ON HER, & TWIDDLE DEE & TWIDDLE DUMB SITTING BESIDE HER…. AND ANDY SAYING SHE IS A TUFF BITCH, PLEASE, THERE’S NOT ONE ONCE OF HER THAT’S TUFF, SHE WOULD LIKE 2 THINK SHE IS, SHES JUST A SPOILED LITTLE RICH BRAT, THAT THROWS FITS & HOLDS GRUDGES WHEN THINGS DON’T GO HER WAY, OR WHEN SOMEONE CALKS GET ON HER SHIT & LIES…. GIVING HER BROTHER AN ULTIMATUM THAT SHE WOULD ALLOW HIM BACK IN HER LIFE IF HE LEFT HIS WIFE, WHAT A HATEFUL BITCH… AND THE TWINS? WELL THERE JUST IGNORANT… NOT TO SMART, REALLY CHILDISH & IMMATURE.. JUST PLAIN ALL AROUND, WELL, DUMB!! AND I AGREE WITH THE OTHER PERSON WHO COMMENTED ABOUT EVERYONE FEELING BAD ABOUT THERESA & JOE HAVING 2 PAY FOR WHAT THEY DID, IN THE REUNION THEY KEPT SAYING IT’S ABOUT THE KIDS, WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS, THAT’S ALL I HEARD REGARDING THAT, BUT THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING, THEY ARE VERY GREEDY, AND WHILE THEY WERE DOING IT THEY DIDN’T STOP TO THINK ABOUT THEIR KIDS DID THEY…. THEY KNEW THEY COULD GET CAUGHT, THEY KNEW WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THEY DID, THOUGH IT DIDN’T STOP THEM, AND THOUGHT OF THEIR KIDS BEING WITHOUT THEM WASN’T ENOUGH TO STOP THEM, JUST PLAIN GREEDY… U DO THE CRIME Y DO THE TIME, NO MATTER HOW MUCH MONEY U HAVE.. SO STOP DEFENDING HER AND FEELING SORRY FOR HER, SHE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS DOING . .

  7. Oh, good gosh—does anyone really care about this stupid family / feud ? People need to get a life. doncaro is a horrible woman with grown babies sucking at her teet and one evil daughter….

    1. Disagree with you–why is Carolyn a horrible woman? That is one question that never has a valid response. Usually there is support for why someone has hatred for what the Guidices have done and can list (at least 42 counts–ha ha); but when it comes to Carolyn it is just someone’s opinion without listing why.

      I read a lot of blogs about the HWs and usually those who write how horrible Carolyn is, it’s because they are ones who feel the Guidices have done nothing wrong.

  8. Dina was way far up Teresa’s (you know what) it was crazy. The hatred in Teresa’s body language was beyond crazy, during the season Teresa and Melissa got along just fine including Dina then at the reunion Teresa had such annoyance for Melissa! If Teresa had an issue(s) with Melissa, why did she not address it prior to reunion? You can just see it on Teresa’s body language she hates all of them! Anyway, Dina is so full of shit, it’s not even amusing anymore. I’m glad Caroline finally spoke up, Dina needs to let go of crap so they (Manzos,lauritas) can all move on or ignore what others (jacq) continues to spew. I have to admit I was interested in finding out what secrets these sisters were holding back on, but, I’m so tired about it already at this point. I enjoy every single cast members for different reasons, I don’t particularly “dislike, hate” any of them, I just want them to find peace with each other so we can all start seeing other story lines, almost like hitting the refresh button. Oh well guess I can only wish.

    LOL@ Teresa & Dina being lesbian lovers.

  9. I was literally saying out loud during WWHL, “C’mon Caroline it’s time to freakin’ say something about this!” And she did in her perfect and amazing Caroline way. She is one of my favorites and always will be. She’s no BS and has a good moral compass. Caroline nailed it… GROW UP DINA!!!
