Teresa Giudice Brings Out the Worst in Caroline Manzo

Caroline ManzoAnd the war between Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice wages on ... with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The latest to come out swinging is Caroline with a blog post this week in which she clears some things up ... or stirs them up, as the case may be.

As you know, on Sunday things got ugly on part one of The Real Housewives of New Jersey ReunionMostly we saw Teresa display every ounce of the narcissistic, delusional personality she possesses, but Caroline also got in a few low blows as well. After cooling down for a few days, she decided to explain her behavior on her Bravo blog, no holds barred.


Let me start by saying that as horrible as I find Teresa this season, I don't think Caroline is completely innocent in all of this. I think she's acts annoyingly superior, is hypocritical at times, and berates Teresa for some of the same things she does. Revealing Teresa's real feelings about her brother Joe Gorga was a big example, no matter who knew previously, especially because Caroline is so angry at Teresa for daring to reveal the rift between Caroline and her sister Dina Manzo. "Teresa knew how important it was to me to keep the Dina issue hidden, but ... she finally had her moment at the reunion," she stated. "Shame on you."

So yes, a bit of the whole pot calling the kettle black thing going on there, but at least Caroline owns her mistakes and doesn't just lie about them. Instead she said she regretted saying that Teresa had no intentions of making up with her brother and that she had called him an a**hole:

Joe didn't deserve to hear that, and I wish I never said it. He's a great guy with a huge heart , and I hurt him. This is what ugly is, and I don't like the feeling. I texted Joe and Melissa the moment I saw it and apologized. It was wrong and in my anger and frustration I didn't realize how the truth would affect others. Lesson learned.

As far as housewives go, I think Caroline conducts herself with more dignity than most, which may not be such a huge feat given those by whom she's surrounded. But while her saintly act gets a bit boring, I do believe her heart is in the right place when it comes to most things. Just because Teresa brings out her worst side, that side is pretty damn fabulous compared to Teresa's best. As Caroline concluded in her blog:

Teresa may think she hurt me, but what she doesn't understand is that she can never hurt me, because I take into account where it's coming from. Unlike you, Teresa, I can look in the mirror and hold my head high knowing that I have always given the best of myself to my family and friends. I live my life with integrity and self-respect.

Part two of the reunion is Sunday, and it should be good, but even more intriguing is season four of RHWONJ, which is being filmed right now during all of this drama -- and fueling it. How long until it starts again? I have a feeling this war will still be going then.

How do you think this war between Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice will end? Do you think it will?
