Kathy Wakile and husband Rich were in the SiriusXM building this week after doing another interview and Bethenny Frankel invited them in for a segment on her show, B Real With Bethenny. They dished on the bad blood with Teresa Giudice, shared why they choose to stay on Real Housewives of New Jersey and what they think about the realness of Teresa and Melissa Gorga’s sudden bonding.

Bethenny asks if Kathy and Rich continue to do the show for the money or for their business.  “It’s a little bit of both,” Kathy says. “A lot of times when we film with our family, our immediate family, it’s fun. It’s being you, there’s no tension.” She continues, “It is a good platform, I’m not going lie. And the money’s not bad either.”

Okay, they’re not IDENTICAL dresses, but we are suckers for a good “who wore it best” competition, so here it is! Kathy Wakile stepped out in a black lace up front dress at the RHONJ premiere party earlier this week and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne wore a similar dress for her birthday, but with long sleeves and a deeper plunge. 

So, the big question is: who wore it best? Or even – which style do you like better? Cast your vote below!

Melissa

Aside from the nonsense story lines with Jacqueline Laurita and the two new Housewives that none of us know yet, the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 premiere episode was really emotional. At this point I just wish that the show was about Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice and their families. I guess that it basically is, but officially dropping the dead weight (Jacqueline) would make for a great show.

But anyway, the Gorga/Giudice portion of RHONJ was on point and I was all sorts of emotional when I was watching it. Melissa and her husband Joe Gorga were so excited and nervous for Teresa to come home and I really felt the tension when I was watching-I also have no life, but anyway)… Melissa shared her thoughts on the first episode of Season 7.

Teresa Giudice

I am semi-embarrassed to admit that I got pretty emotional when I watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 premiere episode. I am way too invested in these people’s lives and Teresa Giudice’s homecoming really got me choked up. Yes, I was super annoyed that Bravo waited until the end of the episode before giving me what I really wanted to see, but it was definitely worth the suspense. The Queen is back and I am so excited about it.

Still, I felt awkward watching the nervous anticipation from Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga before Teresa’s return since I now know that they are all on really good terms and that Melissa and Teresa are now besties. And if I feel kind of conflicted watching the family tension, then I can’t imagine how Teresa herself feels.

WEEHAWKEN, NJ - JULY 10: (L-R) Kim DePaola, Dolores Catania, Siggy Flicker, Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri attend the

Last night was not only the premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey season 7, but also the premiere PARTY for season 7.  The cast (minus Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga) was photographed making an entrance, along with a few other fans of the show.

Kim DePaola, Dolores Catania, Siggy Flicker, Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri posed together as they arrived for the Real Housewives Of New Jersey Season 7 Premiere Party at Molos in Weehawken, New Jersey.

Real Housewives of New Jersey recap

Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives Of New Jersey, and the show opened days before Teresa Giudice‘s release from prison and ends the day she comes home. Apparently Teresa managed to smuggle a personalized hair dresser into prison? Also we met new gals Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania. So far I like them!

Who I did not enjoy seeing was Jacqueline Laurita, who is still crazy after all these years. Also, Poison just had to show off his little poison spewer and just no. Still no. Always no. Forever no. Like Melissa Gorga has to be married to him and enjoy his many splendored little thing, but the rest of us, we didn’t take those vows to honor and cherish anything about him.  

Also, Melissa has new hair that is quite short and blonde. Interesting.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Season 6

It’s been over a year since Real Housewives Of New Jersey last aired. The show paused while Teresa Giudice was on an extended “away” in prison. Time flies when you’re having fun, right?!

Let’s be honest – season 5 was essentially the lost season. Nothing much happened because everyone was far more interested in how Teresa’s legal issues were playing out in real time. Also, everyone was just so freaking tired of the deja-view Gorgadice Family Feud, so Bravo was conflicted: They weren’t sure what to do with the show, but they sure as hell didn’t want to miss capturing Teresa’s unfolding legal situation. Conundrum!
