    Re: The Real Housewives of New Jersey

    I thought Caroline's comments were totally plausible. We've seen her, since day 1, as totally "devoted to family", so it's no surprise to see her starting to suffer from "empty nest syndrome."
    Is the show not going to be on next week? Everybody is talking about the fight taking place in 2 weeks.
    What is taking place next week?

    Which of course they do but that is what I think her thinking was.
    I thought Jaqueline was trying to shut Theresa up and Kim G asked Jacqueline, "What r u saying to her?!". Then Jaq. Responded with "nothing I was just...", like a 5 yo. That part really annoyed me. I wish she would get a backbone.

    Then she should get a job like Albert suggested. Either that or sit at home and talk to the dog all day. Albert could not be any more disconnected from her. He's never really warm or affectionate with her. I think she's sad because he neglects her. She has three adult children living at home. Her nest is far from empty.

It would seem, JMHO, that he should explore other careers that might be a better fit for his aptitudes, because lawyers have to read a lot, so even after graudating from law school and passing the bar exam, the work itself is going to be challenging for anyone who has reading issues.

    I think that she is more complaining about being lonely than not having enough to do; she said herself that she has plenty to do.

    I don't think Albert is disconnected from her. My husband and I are not super affectionate towards one another when we are in front of people. We might come across the same way Caroline and Albert do if a camera was shoved in our face. What we see on TV is probably about 5% of what really goes on in their home which, IMO, is not enough to know the true dynamics of their relationship.

    IMO, I think it's obvious that they both adore each other (though it's more obvious with Caroline) and adore their family.

    As far as the kids go, I do agree that it's not technically an empty nest but it could feel like that to her when they probably are not home that much.

    I think everyone thought it sounded classy to say he was in law school. He couldn't hack it, and that's that. Learning disabilities, disinterest, or distraction, the reason doesn't matter. He's out.

    Totally agree.
    Caroline / her family actually seem the most real of the bunch.

    Caroline is always hinting around for attention and affection from Albert. He's not interested. She was crying and he said not one consoling word or offered a touch of sympathy or warmth. He seems over her.

    I don't remember the exact words, either, but it did seem like a backhanded compliment, to say the least. It was something to the effect of how Ashley looked beautiful, but it took a really long time in the makeup chair to get there. Maybe somebody can find the actual comment. However, what little they showed of the other "models," there were no Heidi Klums or Giselle Bunchens in the group!

    Maybe he just doesn't feel comfortable on camera. Dina's hubby, his brother, didn't even want to be filmed at all. As far as comforting Caroline, he's probably just a clueless man, somewhat typical, who focuses all his attention on his business although he loves his family. I thought it was nice that they do have their "date nights." That shows interest in her. I really like Caroline ... she loves her family, is devoted to her kids, has lots of good common sense, doesn't seem to always be out buying a ton of crap, and is smart enough to stay away from Danielle.
