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!
I don’t know about you all, but I am about sick to death with these Real Housewives of New Jersey and their dramatic shenanigans. My former students acted with more maturity…and they were first graders! This time Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile didn’t limit their issues to the Garden State, but instead brought their antics to ABC’s The View. The women’s segments (that’s right, segmentS plural) aired this morning if you were lucky (?) enough to watch.
An insider tells RadarOnline.com, “The producers on The View asked Teresa if she would try to resolve her issues with Melissa, together, on the show in front of the cameras, but Teresa said she didn’t feel she should do so in front of an audience. Teresa felt that after apologizing repeatedly with no resolution, that Melissa would just attack her, so this all should be handled privately at this point.” And by privately, I am sure she means that Bravo gets dibs to that smack down.

Bringing you an all new photo post of the Real Housewives of New Jersey as the cast attended the New Jersey Fashion & Beauty Week 2011 at the Pleasantdale Chateau on October 3, 2011 in West Orange, New Jersey.
Meanwhile, based on the previews by Bravo for the upcoming RHONJ finale, it appears most fans will finally get to see the showdown between Caroiline and Teresa that they have been waiting for.
And of course it all has do to with Teresa taking not so subtle digs at her Caroline in her cookbook Fabulicious. We reported back in May that Teresa took some shots at her sis-in-law Melissa in the same book (Really — who takes shots at people in a cookbook?). Well apparently, Teresa didn’t end with Melissa.
In the excerpt posted below, Teresa disses Caroline’s Italian background or lack there off when she states: “I am, however, a huge fan of Caroline Manzo. (Even if she’s only 1/16 Italian, or whatever she is …).” Wowzers. Below is the full excerpt from Tre’s book -
“I can’t help it. Every time I sit down to write this intro to my Italian Family Cookbook, two things keep popping into my head: that cheesy Olive Garden commercial, “When you’re here, you’re family”; and what I said about CarolineManzo when she insulted my meatballs on the Rachael Ray show: “Caroline’s as Italian as the Olive Garden.
If you read Skinny Italian, you know I’m not a huge fan of Olive Garden because it takes traditional healthy Italian dishes and turns them into heart-clogging servings of ungodly proportions. (Forget Jersey Shore, it’s the Olive Garden that gives us Italians a bad name!) I am, however, a huge fan of CarolineManzo. (Even if she’s only 1/16 Italian, or whatever she is …)”
With digs like that, it’s no wonder Teresa now finds herself friendless! Teresa, who apparently sees herself as a victim, also took to her Bravo blog this week to fire back at her costars, mostly Jacqueline who called her “scum” during a recent twitter rant.
Below is an excerpt from Tre’s blog -
“As for the craziness on Twitter, I don’t think it’s a very healthy place to be right now (I just can’t take anyone who’s suddenly friends again with Kim G. seriously, sorry!), so I’m going to slowly slip out of it, and maybe take a little break for a while. I have a big project I have to work on, and I want to spend every other second with my family. Don’t worry, I’ll be back!”
Teresa has yet to begin that twitter break as she has been tweeting up a storm since she posted that blog. Even more interesting, a source told UsWeekly that Teresa has a “ghostwriter” for her Bravo blogs!
Below is another excerpt from Tre’s blog about her costars from the most recent episode of the show -
“I will say I didn’t like everything they showed of course. The whole time we were filming, I had no idea what other people were saying about me. I just assumed they were all my friends. That’s why you see me dancing around and trying to have fun in Punta Cana. It’s not until I watch the shows that I see all four of the other ladies having a go at me. On the show, I might talk about a certain incident and how I felt about it, but I don’t talk about personalities or their kids or how they spend their money, or how smart I think they are… I say, “She pissed me off, but I’m not going to let it bother me.” Cut to everyone else: “Teresa can’t be reasoned with, Teresa was dropped on her head as a baby,” all about my “character flaws” and how I didn’t “grow up,” how I’m “cuckoo.” I had no idea they were bashing me like that. Although, tell you the truth, even if I did, I wouldn’t do it back. I’m just not like that. It’s not fun to watch though.”
The drama never ends! More photos from the NJ Fashion & Beauty Event below!

Ed Bergan, owner of the Something Sophisticated clothing store in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey did a photo shoot with Rich and his son Joseph to help promote his store after they reached out to him. In exchange, they received some free shirts (two shirts apiece).
That all sounds good enough. However some drama ensued when according to Ed, Rich decided he didn’t get enough free shirts (the polo shirts retail for close to $100 a piece) and had his assistant send the store a scathing email, demanding they stop using Rich’s image to promote the store.
In the email, which was sent to Reality Tea, an assistant for both Kathy and Rich writes, “Richard and Joseph lending themselves to your shop for a photo shoot is definitively much more of a benefit to you than it is to them… I feel it is totally of bad taste and disrespectful not only to give both Richard and Joseph a limit of two items that they could take from your shop.”
The email continues, “Two shirts at a price point of a total for maybe $100 in exchange for all that associated your shop with both Richard and Joseph is not at all being thankful nor grateful for whom they are. Richard and his family are already established brands.” Wowzers.
To end the email, the assistant Leslie Mota then demands the store immediately stop using the Wakiles’ images for any promotion. “I must regretfully inform you that we are not allowing the pictures to be used by you, your shop and/or photographer in anyway. We are not authorizing you to use them for the purpose of promoting your business and/or clothes line.”
The store owner first relayed the story to Tom Murro of Celebritymagnet.com, who was there visiting the store with new couple Kim Granatell and Michael Lohan. Yes the two are reportedly now dating. Tom adds that the store however has other supporters in the form of the Manzo brothers, and as for Kim G., she was “disgusted beyond words” upon hearing the store owner’s story.
The Wakiles have yet to respond to this story. In their defense, these are the words of their assistant… though the assistant was likely doing their bidding. A screen shot of the entire email is below plus a photo of Kim G. and Michael Lohan at the store.
Meanwhile, a week after writing the following on her blog – “It’s getting harder and harder to keep the girls from reading the outrageous headlines when we’re in the store,”Teresa Giudice once again graces the cover of In Touch magazine while granting them yet another interview! The cover story this time around? “I’m Terrified of Being Poor.”
Teresa is pictured on the cover with one of her daughters which brings up a point made by one of our readers, Frankswif3y, who questioned in a recent comment if Teresa is using images of her kids to gain public sympathy. In looking at her five recent In Touch covers, she is pictured with her daughters on four of those covers. But we’ll let you be the judge. The latest cover is below.
