Even though Kathy Wakile is no longer a Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member, she is still traveling and hustling like one. Just like the current cast members, Kathy and her husband Rich Wakile made a trip to Italy. It sure looked like a fun trip, but they also used it as an opportunity to research for their upcoming pizza restaurant.
Interestingly enough, Kathy’s estranged cousins (who are still thriving on RHONJ) Joe Gorga and Teresa Giudice just opened up an Italian restaurant in New Jersey along with Kathy’s cousin-in-law (a title I made up) Melissa Gorga. At this point, it is a rite of passage for reality TV stars to start their own restaurant, but very few of them survive. It will be interesting to see which family restaurant ends up being the most successful.

One one hand, Joe, Teresa, and Melissa have the powerhouse that is Real Housewives of New Jersey to help promote their restaurant. on the other, Kathy and Rich have gone to great lengths (literally) to research for their restaurant and it looks like they might be importing some ingredients from Italy- an assumption I have made based on some vague photo captions.
Personally, I feel like you can’t have too many Italian restaurants, but I have to admit that I thrive on the potential drama of one establishment succeeding more than the other. Whether you’re #TeamKathy or #TeamGorga, if you appreciate Italian culture, you will enjoy the photos from Kathy and Rich’s trip.
