This season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Caroline Manzo is again acting as the peacemaker of the group.

During the June 9 episode, she put her own differences aside and decided to meet up with her cousin-in-law Teresa Giudice to try and convince her to end her feud with Melissa and Joe Gorga.

“Teresa and I have a long history that spans over many years,” Caroline wrote in her June 9 blog for Bravo. “We have both experienced the highs and lows that each and every one of us has in the game of life. We have laughed together, cried together, fought for and against each other too.”

She was tired of the Giudices and Gorgas being at odds.

“Regardless of where we are in our lives, I can't sit and watch this family disintegrate,” Caroline continued. “The bottom line is they do love each other and are both fiercely devoted to their respective husband and wife, children, mom, and dad.”

But fans of the show weren’t so thrilled that Caroline tried to involve herself in the Gorga/Giudice drama, especially when she can’t even fix her own broken relationship with her sister, Dina Manzo. So, Caroline addressed this situation.

“Many of you will throw my relationship with my sister in my face,” she wrote. “Understood, go for it, it is what it is, and unfortunately out of my control for the moment. This will ultimately change, and I for one hope with all my heart it isn't before it's too late.”

Caroline made one comment that stuck out like a sore thumb: She told Teresa to make up with her brother Joe before their father passed away.

“I live with the fear of my parents passing and not seeing those of us who don't speak every day mend our relationships,” Caroline explained.” It's something I take very seriously, and this is why I was so passionate when speaking with Joe and Teresa. I've been there, I've lived it, and I don't want to watch a brother and sister who only have each other live with regrets. It's a heavy load to bear, especially as a parent.”

Caroline admitted that she overstepped her boundaries, but she did so with good intentions.

“So, really, all of you are right in thinking what you're thinking,” she said. “I'm overstepping my boundaries, but my intent is pure.

Caroline concluded, “If I could have one wish it would be that we could all turn back time, back when we were young and stupid, where we laughed and cried, and fought for each other instead of against one another. Wouldn't that be nice?”
