Comparing Melissa's looks from the first season she signed on up until the current season – do you think her style stayed the same? Or has it morphed into something completely different? I can definitely pick out which photos are from earlier in her reality TV career.
Whether she's trying out the latest in Australian outback gear or hitting the red carpet (often smooching up a storm with husband Rich), Kathy has fun with her style and doesn't take herself too seriously.
We've rounded up a few dozen of Kathy's fashion hits and misses since she joined the show back in Season 3, so take a look at the gallery below!
Among the various Gorga family feuds, Teresa's father is also at odds with Kathy Wakile's mother and they have been for years! This week Teresa and Rosie Pierri sat down to try and iron out differences and be a family again. Our source gives us an EXCLUSIVE back story about the Gorga family feuds, both Original Flavor (old school) and Reality TV Flavor (New School starring Poison and Teresa!).
Apparently part of Teresa's parent's drama with Kathy centers around her decision to join RHONJ despite the family issues. "Teresa's parents were against Melissa [Gorga], Joe, and Kathy joining the show. Why? Because of all the family drama. Who would want their family drama on TV? So, yes, Teresa's father holds a grudge against Kathy and her family as well as their own son and his wife."
It seems like Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are constantly in the media for feuding or cookbooks or club promotions, so today we thought we'd send some love to Real Housewives of New Jersey'sKathy Wakile. Granted, it's not as exciting or dramatic as anything her co-stars are usually stirring up, but sometimes we need a little calm in our lives, right?
Speaking to Parade, Kathy dishes on life with the Bravo cameras and how she's tried to maintain balance with her family, her new business opportunities, and the all encompassing world of reality television.
Kathy has tried hard to make sure her kids don't listen to the haters, saying, “Sometimes it gets to you when people feel they are entitled to negatively judge you based on what they see on TV. My husband and I always discuss these things with our kids and try to reinforce what they know to be true about our family and not respond to ‘critics’ who don’t know the whole story. At the end of the day, we are each others foundation and stability, and that will never change. Our mantra is: ‘Don’t let other people’s perception change your reality.’”
As you'll see in the gallery, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star doesn't stray too far from her fashion comfort zone – and it's worked well for her. Who has time for fashion when there's Tweeting to be done?
Take a look at the gallery and tell us which Jacqueline look you love the best.
Blk water must not be doing as bad as some people say! Albie Manzo shares that blk is launching a line of flavored waters this summer.
Albie took to Instagram, writing, "And here….we….GO!!! @blkbeverages #getexcited July 2013 August 2013." Sharing the above photo, which depicts four new flavors of water – black lemonade, mango coconut, tropical punch and blueberry acai.
The Manzo boys have said that they joined in on the Little Town New Jersey restaurant to make some cash since they weren't pulling any paychecks from the BLK venture just yet. But I'm guessing that BLK is doing better than we think, otherwise they wouldn't be investing more money to launch this new flavored line. Right?
TELL US – WILL YOU GIVE THE FLAVORED BLK WATER A TRY?
So Real Housewives of New Jersey keeps teasing us about some great magical place where everyone comes together, sings Kumbaya and is happy, happy, happy! So far we've seen some baby steps starting with Teresa Giudicemaking amends with her cousin Rosie on this week's episode.
In her Bravo blog, Teresa promises that although things are heated right now, everything simmers down with time. And much more good is to come. But of course, because they're Italians there are a lot of flaring tempers!
"I'm not gonna lie, I'm so happy right now," Teresa begins. "Things are so so good. (Maybe it's because I finally got a taste of my own medicine. Had no idea I needed that so badly. Yum!) Seriously though, we are all in a good place now, and you'll soon see how we got there."
