I am not really persuaded that Caroline's in menopause (average onset is 51.5 years). She doesn't appear to be estrogen starved I am sure that the hormonal changes can make women in menopause more emotional - but, unless she was a complete nut case before signing on with Bravo, why would she be sharing these moments with a TV audience? I'm not buying it.Caroline probably started going through the change of life more recently, with all its attendant issues including her kids becoming adults and not needing her so much
I suspect that they are just introducing new, half-baked storylines in the show. It's in need of some! The same may be true for the empty-nest blues. Who would share this compelling, sad, and challenging phase of life with millions of viewers? It's just too personal.
Ashley pulled that formsping page down just a few hours after she posted that garbage (even though she prefaced those comments by saying they are gossip). I suspect she made it up and someone advised her to delete the page. I also suspect she's quite jealous of Christine Staub - there's the fact that Christine is having a shot at something Ashley's always wanted to pursue, and there's Christine's academic success as opposed to Ashley's failures (at the same high school).Even that old mug shot of Danielle, in when she was younger and her face unchanged, she doesn't look a thing like her daughters. Those girls concern me, though. Ashley Holmes said some pretty scandalous things about Christine and boys and hot tubs. I hope someone in their lives puts them first, but it looks kind of bleak.
Danielle's kids seem to be most well-adjusted normal kids on the show, imo. Say what you will about their mom, they didn't raise themselves
