Caroline Manzo and Siggy Flicker appeared on Watch What Happens Live Sunday night and the two dished on each of their respective shows with Andy Cohen.
The poll question of the night was asking viewers whose side they were on between Teresa Giudice or her cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. Andy asked Caroline for her opinion. “Kathy is good people and Rosie’s good people and they’re doing it from their heart. So, I’d like for Teresa to open up her heart and realize that people make mistakes and say bad things that they don’t mean sometimes. I think it’s time she grows up and accepts them back.”
“I agree with her,” Siggy added. “I think Kathy is great, Rosie is great, but I think Teresa is even better. What people don’t understand is Rosie and Kathy’s mom and Teresa’s father are brother and sister and it starts there. There’s bitterness there. So it’s generations upon generations that aren’t getting along and I think right now if Teresa says, ‘I don’t want to have a relationship with you.’ You should say, ‘Fine,’ and back off.”
When Caroline challenged Siggy if it was for the right reason, Siggy said we will sooner or later find out if it’s for the right reason, but insisted Kathy and Rosie should still give Teresa her space right now.
Andy turned to Caroline and said he “assumed” she wasn’t in touch with Teresa. “No,” Manzo replied.
A caller asked Caroline how she can be friends with Dolores Catania when she’s friends with Teresa. “I don’t own anybody. It’s anybody’s right to be friends with whoever they’d like to and have a relationship with whoever they’d like to. You come to my house and treat me with respect, I’m going to treat you with respect. They deserve respect, as any friendship does. I don’t fault her, I don’t blame her, that’s her right to be friends with whoever she wants. Teresa and I don’t get along, that’s the way of it, and Teresa would say the same thing. It doesn’t matter.”
Another caller asked Siggy what the hardest thing is about being a new Housewife. “It was hard for me to navigate through the relationships. When Jacqueline fights with Teresa, that really upset me deeply, and we’ll see it coming up. I don’t like for anybody to fight. It’s hard for me because there’s so much history and I love these girls.”
Andy mentioned that Dina Manzo tweeted in and said, “@siggyflicker gives great advice! You go girl”

Then, he asked Caroline if everything was still fine between her and her sister. Caroline shook her head as Andy looked shocked. “It’s over,” she said. “What are you going to do? Can’t get blood out of a rock.”
Danielle Staub also tweeted in. “why the double standard @carolinemanzo you didn’t allow anyone to be friends with me but now ?….”

“Because, Danielle Staub, thanks for watching, number one, and number two, you and I never had any kind of relationship, so I don’t want to be around the people that are around you,” Caroline fired back. “So maybe it’s my end. Twitter world, go for it!”
Another caller asked Manzo if she would ever consider returning to RHONJ. “Wow. I can’t go back to what was. So, things would have to change, relationships would have to change, it would have to be a better place to be.”
Siggy and Caroline also agreed that Teresa and Jacqueline will eventually make up because of their history and how much they genuinely care about each other.
Andy asked Caroline what she thinks of Teresa and Melissa’s new relationship. “I hope it’s genuine,” Caroline said, when Andy asked on whose part, she said, “Both. Because the fight that stopped the world, nobody ever knew what it was. I don’t think they knew what it was, it was just so old that they forgot what it really was. I hope that it’s genuine. I’m not in the mix anymore, I can’t give a real vibe and it’s not fair of me to say one thing or another. I hope it’s genuine.”
Kathy and Rosie won the poll 53% to Teresa’s 47%.
