Caroline Manzo

Caroline hopes someone told Joe he does not have eggs.

on Sep 15, 20130

Hello and happy Sunday! Summer is officially over, everyone is in work mode, the kids are back to school, and fall is in the air. I love it!

We're finally back from Arizona, and everyone is getting back to work. Teresa has a new food line, Melissa took her singing career to another level, Kathy's cannoli make their way into New York City, and Jacqueline conquers her fear of public speaking while raising Autism awareness. As for me, all you got to see was me suffering from another migraine. One of these days I hope to finally be rid of them! I've had them since I was eight years old. I think I deserve to be migraine free at this point in my life, keeping my fingers crossed.

I enjoyed watching all of the husbands support their wives in their endeavors. They were cute, weren't they? Joe Giudice proudly showed the two mom's Teresa's showroom, Joe Gorga praised Melissa's talent to her new manager, Richie was running around in circles trying to get Kathy to Dylan's on time, Chris gave Jacqueline hugs and pep talks right up to the very minute she spoke, and even my Albert made sure I was comfortable with a back rub and an ice pack for my headache. They drive us crazy, but when we need them, they're right by our sides, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Has the neurologist ever given you a triptan as a "rescue" drug?  They are a miracle.

Get a thyroid test done...I did, started meds for low active thyroid and my migraines cleared up!  May not be the answer for everyone but for me, it was the miracle that ended my nightmare with neverending migraines.  Cheers!

I have never understood all the Hate from the Keyboard Cowboys when it comes to Manzo's. I have never seen Caroline go after anyone that wasn't justified.  I have never seen her kids do anything any other kid hasn't said or done in real life. I love Caroline, she reminds me of one of my Aunts growing up. Rock on Mama Bear!

Sorry about your migraines.  But rest; and stay in the dark (literally).

Essential oils seem to be all the rage in my neck of the woods right now. I have several friends that are using frankincense, and say it works wonders!

Caroline, been there on the migraines for years, have tried everything, and regret all the things I missed out on because I could barely open my eyes or get of the sofa. If you haven't tried giving up dairy for a month, DO IT and see what happens. It's made a huge impact and being Italian myself, I thought I'd die w/o ricotta, gelato, etc, but the relief has been so worth it, I haven't looked back. Besides, there are decent substitutes out there and a little taste here or there has proven to be no problem. Give it a try, if you haven't already.:

I almost got a headache myself watching you with the migraine.  I used to suffer horribly with them when I was younger.  It usually takes a combination of medication and change of situation to get rid of them.  Everyone will come to you as an expert, but I am sure you realize that individuals have varying causes of their migraines.   Even allergies to certain things (like cigarette smoke) can trigger them.  Best of luck in ridding yourself of them.  Change doctors....anything to help.   I don't see how you tolerated the light in the room......it usually took a cool, dark room and quiet to ease mine.

This one will NOT watch your spin off... I can barely tolerate you and your clan now. Well, I have to confess, as soon as the camera goes to you and yours I channel surf. What are y'all going to do?? Sit around the table and discuss BW, car wash... etc... oh yeah, and bash Teresa?? Boring!!

Just when I thought you were being nice, I hear you have a new show coming.  That is why you are trying to change your image....again.  Gads, will not be watching.  Opportunist to the max.

If anyone gets a spinoff it should be Rosie!  Now THAT I would watch for comedy, entertainment, hopefully some therapy and watching a very kind, genuine heart.

Migraines suck!! The only thing that works for my mom is imitrex! Caroline I can appreciate the fact that your trying to stay neutral with the  Gorga Giudice feud this season! But this is the thing you claim to always keep it real yet I don't really think you do! You have sat back for two seasons and watched Melissa in action! yet the only thing you can say about her is maybe Teresa was right and I don't know the real Melissa?! Come on Caroline really?! Where is the call it like I see it Caroline?! and if you really can't see through Melissa's devious ways than you have no business giving advice! I'm so over this blame every rumor out there on Teresa!! The story line is getting really old! I don't know if it editing or what?! But it seems really fake on Melissa's side!! I almost feel like she wanted this woe is me storyline!! She kills two birds with one stone! A. she gets to be the victim once again! B. Teresa is the villain once again!! Too bad the viewing audience didn't buy it.......

I have no idea if you actually read this, but I feel for you as a fellow migraine sufferer. Depakote is a drug used to prevent migraines. Supposedly it works great, I used it for a short time and felt a difference but because of other conditions I have had to stopped taking it. I've also heard certain blood pressure medications are now working wonders as migraine prevention meds. Imitrex is can be a miracle worker at getting rid of one. I'm sure you've looked into treatments but felt a need to share my experiences anyway out of migraine solidarity; nothing worse than a terrible one, especially when non-migraine sufferers don't "get" its not just a bad headache that maybe you should be tough enough to just plug along about your day with.

Oh Good God...

The Manzo's getting their own show...it just goes to show that Bravo is not listening to their viewers. Now I have a reason to watch "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo"   We don't need a spin off with the sour, negative Manzo family...We needed you to fix Jersey Housewives, ugh!  Too late now! You broke it Bravo...You own it!

I'll never understand the keyboard warriors that come to the blog of someone they dislike just to bash them. What do you get out of that? Does it make you feel better about yourselves? It's really sad. If you don't like Caroline or her kids, ignore them. It's as easy as that.

 

Caroline, I adore you and your family and I'm looking forward to your new show. : )

Caroline...I just read Penny blog and an interview...and they asked her who was the puppet master of New Jersey? Her answer....CAROLINE MANZO...that you create the drama behind the scenes...and that Melissa and Joe Gorga have become your puppets...she said the difference between you and Jill Zarin is that Jill did not cover her tracks well and you do....but next episode...things will unfold and you are the one telling joe and Melissa that it is Teresa...spreading the rumors....because you do not want to hurt your book sales and BLK.... and the many snake oils that you have been peddling....you have remained in the background purposefully...because you saw a dip in your sales after behaving so ugly the last several seasons...and you know how easy it is to goad Joe and Melissa to spar with Teresa because of their stupidity...and that you have played them for everything you got...I saw thru that long time ago...and I believe Penny...you know why? because everytime Teresa comes around Jackie, or Melissa....you go into this freeze frame and turn your ear toward their conversations...and eye hawk their every move...you a lonely miserable woman!

I am sorry but you only have a migraine when is not about you or your kids,next day you had no migraine i have nothing against Chris your bro because he does have a kind heart and he is helping his son but as for you not fooling anybody with the way you acted in the past you lost a lot of fans. Why don't you bring Dina to your Spin off then i will see the old Caroline.

Can't believe that you and your children are getting your own show.  Will be tough to watch though since I FF through parts of RHONJ that you are in.  The only redeeming quality this season has been that your children haven't been on much.  Really not interested in the Manzo family, especially Lauren, insulting people and being nasty.

I would bet that now that you have a pilot about to film, Are we gonna get to see your face lift aired??? No doubt that will happen because all of you manzos are vain. Hopefully you will not be on RHONJ and I can watch. It again. Get over yourselves manzos....

Can't stand Joe Guidice or his wicked wife. They are both morons.On the other and love Caroline and Jo Gorga.

Funny, how you are suddenly becoming positive since the announcement of your family show. Your tag line is "I speak the truth"...well, until you apologize for your appalling behavior last year and at last year's reunion when you were brutal to Teresa, I will never be a fan of yours. You are so mad that Teresa stole your spotlight and got overly annoyed at a ridiculous comment in a cookbook, that I simply can't take you serious. Now, you're best friends with the Gorga's (of which Melissa is the most superficial, lying person ever). I can't ever take you serious, and I sure won't be watching your show. You became a major disappointment.

I think Kathy's sister, Rosie, should have a boxing match with Teresa's brother.  They both are very explosive emotionally. And throw in Joe Judice in the ring too to kick them both around. I can't stand those two ( rosie and Joe gorga ).

Oh now I get it!! They aren't airing YOUR family cheating because of the spin-off. I knew there had to be a reason!

What is BRAVO thinking?

Migraines can also be a form of Karma!!...Maybe on your spin-off you can have your siblings on that you do not speak to and Teresa could help bring some words of wisdom to everyone and let you get it all out in the open.  Then every time you all are in a better place, T could say:" no, let`s talk some more and make sure there`s nothing else". Oh, and Messy can give advise on your marriage too. And last but not least, show how you shame your family and break your parents heart because I know how proud they must be of you giving advise to other families but won`t even try to repair your own.  oh yes, I bet you have made your parents so proud!!!!

Kls02071:  I agree that some people take the bashing too far with no proof.  I like Caroline and her family a lot.  She is down to earth and honest to a fault.  I too am looking forward to seeing the new spinoff.  Caroline has real love in her heart and it shows on the screen.

@bug Your post so funny, so true nothing good on Tv these days. When all is done in my day, my husband watches every sport that's on, I find myself watching reruns , Seinfeld etc. Or Oprah channel, Own , some good stuff on her network. I love Andy Cohen, and had high hopes for him bringing good TV back. I do love the decorators shows and real estate shows.

 Really? She's been getting them since she's 8 years old. So she was getting some Karma based migraines at 8? You're ridiculous.

 @GrandBeth And how do you know that she hasn't tried to repair her relationships with her family? Are you a close personal friend? It takes two...people need to just realize these shows are for entertainment. Why does everyone get so angry and involved? Do I get flustered? Yes, but it's not my life...Geez!

 O Good God Holy Mother of Pearl.

I read her blog and left a comment because I used to be a fan of this show...Thank you very much. I used to like Caroline. And as a viewer it gives me every right to give voice my opinion. Jersey USED to be fun to watch. Now I cringe when watching it. Lately I  find myself changing the channel. Pokadot understands what I'm saying!  Thank you Pokadot. Oh and by the way I didn't read Carolines blog...I just came her hoping Bravo would read a viewers opinion. I am sure I am just 1 viewer who doesn't want to see the Manzo's on t.v. I also don't want a Melissa and Joe spin off. I don't like Bravo's spin offs at all. 

TV is getting so trashy. Can't we do more shows like Jeff lewis interior therapy...sigh

 I'm not either.  Caroline had a chance to redeem herself and call Melissa out on all of her bs but she didn't. Won't watch her show just like I didn't watch Tamra's wedding special.
