Kathy Wakile Responds To Teresa Giudice’s Claims She Joined Real Housewives Of New Jersey Behind Her Back

Teresa Giudice has her fair share of family problems. I don’t even know where to begin. Obviously, there’s her estranged husband Joe Giudice’s pending deportation. Her relationship with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga is never great for more than a few episodes. Teresa and Joe Gorga’s father Giacinto Gorga was recently hospitalized. She’s still reeling from the loss of her mother. She spent eleven months away from her four daughters while she was in jail away at camp.

Even with all of that, Teresa still thinks that her family joining Real Housewives of New Jersey is the worst thing that has ever happened to her. Yes, she actually said that. Melissa and Joe Gorga joined the show in Season 3 along with Teresa’s cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. She had no idea they were a part of the show until the cameras started rolling. As polarizing as Teresa is among the RHONJ fandom, most people would agree that’s so shady.

Kathy responded to Teresa’s recent comments in an interview with Us Weekly. Kathy said, First of all, I never approached Bravo to do the show.” No one said that Kathy approached the network, but great deflection there, cannoli queen.

Kathy continued, “Second of all, I never did it behind anyone’s back. I followed the protocol that Bravo set before me, you know? And so to keep pushing that and saying that, that I went behind Teresa’s back and … Enough already. I wish everyone well.” In the immortal words of Danielle Staub: pay attention, please. Kathy never actually denied joining the show without telling Teresa. All she did was insist that she followed the proper protocol that the network put in place.

Nevertheless, Kathy insisted that Teresa’s recent comments perpetuated a “false narrative.”

Kathy told the magazine, “It’s just a lie. There’s more important things that they should be worried about. I think they have more pressing matters in their lives to worried about.” Agreed, but, I actually do think Teresa does have a point. The way these people joined the show was so uncool, as Luann de Lesseps would say. Nevertheless, this was definitely NOT the worst thing that has every happened to her. Not by a long shot.

Kathy tried to convince herself told the publication, “It’s been almost three and a half years. Bravo was a chapter of my life and my story doesn’t end there. I’m continuing to do my thing.” Oh, come on, girl. We know you’d kill to sell those cannolis and push that pizza place on Real Housewives of New Jersey.
