Caroline Manzo has been filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey up until last year, when she decided to leave the drama behind and pursue her own reality show with her family called Manzo’d with Children. But people remember some of the issues that Caroline was tangled up in on the show, which included quite a few fights. She even got involved with arguments that had nothing to do with her.
Caroline Manzo may not have enjoyed arguing on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but she recently made some comments about fighting that are rather interesting. On Manzo’d with Children, her children Albie and Lauren got into a huge argument because Lauren didn’t want Albie to date his new girlfriend. She wanted him to go find a nice girl, so he could have children the same time as her. And this discussion led into a huge argument between the siblings.
According to a new Bravo report, Caroline Manzo wasn’t happy that her children were fighting, but she is revealing that she does think arguing can be healthy for them. While she doesn’t want them to stop talking like she has done with her siblings, she does think it is healthy to discuss different perspectives, and then work it out.
“I don’t like to see my kids fight, but I believe that arguments can be healthy in a relationship, as long as there is a mutual desire to talk it out and come to a resolve. I’m happy to say that Albie and Lauren were able to discuss their feelings and bury the hatchet. This makes me very happy,” Caroline Manzo revealed in her official blog for the episode.
It is interesting that Caroline Manzo thinks that fighting can be healthy, given her own past with fighting and arguing on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It is no secret that Caroline blames Teresa Giudice for coming in between herself and her sister, Dina Manzo. Dina doesn’t see it that way, and Teresa has said that she is not standing in Caroline’s way, according to The Inquisitr.
Recently, Teresa was sentenced to serve time for fraud, and Caroline Manzo was asked about the sentencing, given she and Teresa had once argued. Plus, Manzo had predicted that Teresa would divorce Joe. When asked about the divorce, Caroline revealed she didn’t want to talk about it.
“I am going to keep that to myself, because today’s not the day for that,” Manzo said, adding, “I would be an awful person to speculate. . . this is not a time to gloat, this is not a time to laugh, this is not a time to say ‘I told you so.'”
Caroline Manzo did reveal that she did say things on The Real Housewives of New Jersey out of pure anger at the time. It is uncertain whether she has apologized to Teresa for these comments.
“Back then in anger I said some things, and maybe I regret them and maybe they’ll come true and maybe they won’t,” Caroline said, adding, “I don’t know. All I know is that what I saw go down this week is sad.”
