Real Housewives of Sydney star Caroline Gauthier shares an update on her mother, who was recently diagnosed with cancer while Caroline was filming the show.
The reality star was told the devastating news while cameras were watching the BINGE series, with the star breaking down in tears in front of the cameras.
In his second appearance this season on Joel Creasy’s The ROSES official podcast of Nova Entertainment, Caroline said she had a choice whether she wanted these scenes to be aired or to keep the moment private.
“I had a choice whether I wanted to make it public or not,” she told Creasy. “It was 100 percent my choice. So I talked to my mom and she said, “Look, I was born in show business, I’m going to die in show business.”
Caroline’s mother was a famous actress and journalist in Prague and is more stubborn than the boisterous former model. In her late 70s, she says she has had good results and wants to spend her final years living her life rather than undergoing treatment.
Caroline respects her mother’s wishes, but she still has a hard time with the thought of her mother passing away.
“Sometimes I can talk about it, but I don’t want to ruin my makeup,” she said on the podcast.
“It comes in waves. It’s a whole thing. I wasn’t well for two years after my dog died, so I really don’t know how he’s going to get better. This is a whole new experience for me. Try. Sometimes to do it, sometimes not.

Elsewhere on the podcast, Caroline couldn’t help but criticize her colleagues’ inability to move on from the drama.
“Who has time? Say what you have to say, hear the other person’s point of view, think a little bit and then say sorry or make up or whatever and move on,” she said.
“I think we have a bit of a problem moving forward.”
This week, ROSES fellow cast member Terry Biviano arranges a trip for the girls to Tokyo to help Caroline get her mind off her mother. But the girls’ getaway quickly turned sour when Terry and Chrissy Marsh got into a confrontation while tasting sake.
Essentially, Chrissy feels that Terry is constantly siding with fellow cast member Dr. Kate Adams, even if Terry has been friends with Chrissy for a longer time.
“I think Chrissy thought they were BFFs,” Caroline said. “I think Terry’s perception of their friendship is different and that’s why the fight was.”
Caroline was there with the duo when the tension flared, but she steered clear of him and continued to drink her sake and gin – both bottles.
“This particular argument is about their friendship, which I am not familiar with. So I can’t comment on that because I don’t know what their friendship was like outside the show for 15 years,” she said.
“As much as I can comment on what’s going on in front of me, I think most girls, apart from Kate and me, have a history of friendships. So I feel like something might creep into the current friendships or if they have any vendettas or if there have been any issues that I don’t know about and I’ve never asked so I can’t comment.
Caroline said she thinks the drama between her co-stars is “sweet” because it’s not a matter of life and death.
“Problems are sweet. They’re not heartbreaking scenarios where they fight, “Are you my real friend? Aren’t you my real friend? I can’t believe you said that to me too…” she scoffed.
“It’s cute. It’s not really [bad] – did he die? Nobody’s dead… that’s a level I can tolerate.”
