Kathy & Richie Wakile

Kathy Wakile is expanding her cannoli empire to include a restaurant called “Pizza Love”!

The former Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is following in her cousin Teresa Giudice‘s footsteps to open a pizzeria. Hopefully Kathy will be more successful than Juicy Joe was! Kathy says opening Pizza Love is something she’s “wanted to do for a long time” and has been quietly planning behind-the-scenes.

“I’ve talked about it in the past but the timing wasn’t right, [and] now I have the time to devote to it,” Kathy shared of the Bergen County, NJ restaurant, slated to open in June.

Kathy will be working alongside her ever-devoted husband Richie Wakile – think of all the sex innuendos he can make about pizza! – and two other business partners with restaurant experience. Hopefully not Jacqueline or Chris Laurita! The restaurant won’t just offer pizza – Kathy will also sell her infamous cannoli, plus Mediterranean fare.

“It’ll be a family restaurant,” Kathy told Page Six, who promised that contrary to how her family usually operates, Pizza Love will be “drama free.”

Kathy confirmed Teresa will not be involved. “I imagine she’d be focusing on her children and being a mother herself,” she quipped. So, don’t eat there expecting to see Teresa flipping any tables in real life, but if you haven’t had your fill of Giudice family recipes courtesy of Teresa’s former cookbook empire, now’s your chance!

Kathy adds herself to an esteemed list of ex-RHONJ stars who are also in the restaurant biz, which includes Caroline Manzo and Teresa Aprea.
