As Kathy Wakile once said, Real Housewives of New Jersey really is “the Teresa show.” RHONJhistorians recall that Teresa Giudice’scousin declared that during a reunion episode argument and she didn’t mean it in a flattering way, but the quote still stands. Teresa Giudice is Real Housewives of New Jersey. Real Housewives of New Jersey is Teresa Giudice.
They even delayed filming seven months to wait for Teresa to come home from prison. Hell, they had a three-part episode where Teresa talked to her family via speaker phone. That’s right: SPEAKER PHONE. Teresa was able to carry this show via phone call, so of course anyone with eyes and ears knows that she is THE queen of the show. Like her or not, she has been and will always be the center piece of this show. With that said, everyone on the show does what they can to be in her good graces, so it’s interesting to know what Teresa thinks of all of her potential soldiers costars.
Even though Kathy Wakile isn’t a Real Housewives of New Jerseycast member anymore, she is still trying to parlay her reality TV fame into opening an Italian restaurant in New Jersey. If that sounds familiar, it’s because she’s not the only New Jersey Housewife who has done this recently. With that said, it will be interesting to see how Kathy’s PizzaLove restaurant will do in comparison to the one that her two cousins Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorgaopened with Melissa Gorga.
Kathy’s restaurant is not open at a full-scale yet, but PizzaLove is having its soft opening to test out the menu and bring in some customers for the future. I wonder if it will serve up those cannolis that Kathy started serving while she was still on the show.
Kathy also brought along her husband, Rich. We wonder how awkward things were since a lot of Kathy’s former Jersey co-stars were also at the NYFW event: Melissa Gorga, Danielle Staub, and newbieMargaret Josephs.
It looks like we’re getting a glimpse of another event being filmed for the upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules. Katie Maloney celebrated an event for her Pucker & Pout website at SUR. She was joined by co-stars Lala Kent, Stassi Schroeder,Brittany Cartwright, Tom Sandoval, Scheana Marie and even James Kennedy!
Over in NYC, a slew of Bravo stars past and present headed out last night to celebrate with Patti Stanger. The party pulled in the likes of Dorinda Medley, Karen Huger, Claudia Jordan, Rich and Kathy Wakile and more.
Also out and about: Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian. Be warned: Kim’s wearing a see-through getup, so you may want to scroll through gallery without kids or co-workers lurking about. 😉
Above: former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino shared, “Feeling very patriotic today. I love America. I love our freedom. I love our military who protect us every day. I love red, white, and blue! (I I luv this $60 swimsuit!) Happy 4th everyone! Be safe! #godblessAmerica #happy4thofjuly”
Yesterday our favorite reality TV dads celebrated Father’s Day, which meant gushing social media shout-outs galore (and lots of shirtless dad pics).
Or in Kim Zolciak-Biermann‘s case, her shout-out featured a a pic of her wearing a skimpy bikini – which I’m sure is connected to how she and Kroy Biermannended up with such a massive brood of kiddies!
Above, Teresa Giudice shared, “Happy Father’s Day to my Papa. love you more than anything in this world you are my life and I am who I am because of you #daddysgirl #papa #familyiseverything”
