    I used to like Caroline, but not so much anymore. She takes herself way too seriously and she looks silly with all of her preachy talk. Ack!

    You're right, and instead of just saying: "her problems were added to with the BK" as I did in my earlier post, I should've said something to the effect of: "NOT even being able to FILE a BK on all the money they owe" or something like that, to be clearer.

    Most people apparently and obviously DID like Teresa during Season 1. And, yep, apparently, her original agenda for coming on the show has DEFINITELY shifted to her making all the money she can from it, while she still can.

    Let's face it: What in the hell does JUICY seem to be doing, in that regard?

    Still, I think this really, REALLY nasty side of Teresa that was shown last night on the Reunion show (example: full-out calling Melissa a bitch when Melissa was saying something that she didn't agree with) is a side that was always there. Yeah, we've seen her go Thundercat on a Reunion show before, but, to me at least, last night, she took it to a whole NOTHER level, going off on people that she once claimed as friends. THEN actually having the brass ones to try to sit there and justify her actions and statements!

    And I still believe that at some point in her life prior to the show, her friends had to have noticed her personality quirks, but still didn't put her on blast about the inconsistencies and lack of logic in her statements and actions. Or the fact that she never listens to anybody when she asks them for help and they try to give her their advice.

    I mean, you can only keep up a front for so long before the truth rears its ugly head.

    And I believe it may have reared a long, long, time ago, off camera.

    Sure, she was able to keep it reined in for awhile . . .

    But not permanently.

    Yo Poppy: I lit candles in church to see Teresa get her "comeuppins" - it was the best TV EVER! From day one I saw her for what she was -- Caroline, too. And to think she admitted shame how she acted in the past how she treated everyone -- not even knowing them -- just believed everything Teresa told her. Not to sound like a broken record, but the way they all ganged up on Danielle was cruel and unconscionable way to treat another human being.

    I have no sympathy for any of them; of course, Kathy is a non-issue.

    I've got to give Caroline kudos for that. And I believed her when she said it, too.

    As I've said, she's no saint, either.

    But at least she had the logic and common sense to see that she was wrong --- eventually --- and the guts to admit she had been wrong in front of everybody, his brother and the whole country.

    Yikes!! What can I say?
    Looks like Teresa was in Danielle's seat at the end of S1!
    Sad, but understandable.
    Last night was getting way too painful to watch.
    Did Teresa deserve the jibes she got? Yes, she sure did.
    However, after the first 7 minutes, it felt like she was being "roasted" and there were no comedians doing it. Sad to watch.
    I don't like the ugly tone all these shows seem to be taking.

    What can he do? He is nearly 9 million in the hole and he owns (I'm guessing) a $100,000 a year income generating pizzeria?

    i believe you have to have a bachelor's to be a buyer for macy's . . . teresa was prob an asst buyer, yet i doubt she was trying to make herself seem more important by saying buyer instead of asst. as far as experience tho, you don't need any to be a buyer as i know PLENTY of ppl that got jobs straight out of college as buyers for macy's and robinsons may (before macy's bought them out) . . . . and i'm pretty sure teresa's tastes are reflective of the products in the jersey stores.

Macy's isn't Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus but I would imagine at that time, it would require more experience than Teresa's. Maybe she was an assistant buyer but I doubt that either. Not to mention the fact that her taste level is not something that would appeal to the Macy stores.

    lol, you don't need a lick of experience to be a buyer for macy's.

    and if the college is offering an aa degree, it must be accredited.

    Anyhow, Teresa is good at spinning truth into BS. I take her published claims of being a "buyer" at Macy's to be BS, as well. You need experience as well as excellent written and verbal communication skills for that position - none of which Teresa has.
