Tino, I don't think the hostility has anything to do with her great acting. She is one of the best actors on th show. I tend to agree with the above that Carm is a big bag of hot air. She knows the lifestyle, wears the expensive cloths, and jewlery, yet denounces Tony... I bit hypocritical if you ask me???? Again, were talking about Carmella Soprano here, not the actor that plays her.. She was manipultaing him, and it was all about the kid... That's what pissed him off... BUUUT... Look out dude...... If Tony Finds out, your ass is grass!!!!
