The only reason I can think of for accepting a role in this kind of reality TV show is free publicity for the project of your dreams. I have no problem with that, either, and did not mean to imply in my earlier post that I do. My point is just that Teresa's relatives signed on to profit by promoting their business ideas, and accepted roles that were meant to do nothing but expose family feuds.
Teresa did not sign up for that, but she had to accept it. I do not believe that either she or Melissa are jealous of each other, but that they are not (and probably never will be) friends. Caroline Manzo is another story entirely. So is Jacqueline. I think they are both somewhat resentful of the fame Teresa Guidice has generated - both for her odd, shallow, furtively deceitful personality as well as her actual strengths and the fact that she has penned (with a ghost writer) 3 NY Times bestsellers. I think that definitely gets under Caroline's skin.
On camera, this whole past season, Caroline has looked like she could benefit from a good old-fashioned enema. Jacq just seems troubled, and after hearing about what she and her husband are dealing with at home (with Nicholas), I understand that.
