Apparently former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kathy Wakile still exists. Back in the day, her issues with cousin Teresa Giudice caused so much family friction. Viewers watched their relationship fall apart throughout Kathy’s tenure on the show. We haven’t heard much from her until recently, so maybe something is brewing.
In addition to Kathy’s issues with Teresa, she also has bad blood with Melissa Gorga. So much family drama! This family will never fully come together ever again. So much has happened over the years, and it appears beyond repair. However, that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of Kathy on Real Housewives of New Jersey. IS it possible the cannoli queen could make a return? Hmmm.
Teresa Giudice’s history on Real Housewives of New Jersey has all the makings of a Shakespearean drama. In 2014, Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, plead guilty to federal fraud charges. He was sentenced to 41 months
in prison at camp, and Teresa received a sentence of 15 months. Teresa was released from prison on December 23, 2015.
Joe was transferred to ICE custody after finishing his prison stint in March. Since Joe is not a United States citizen, he was ordered to be deported to Italy. He is appealing that order in hopes of returning home to his wife and four daughters. During the Season 9 RHONJ reunion, Teresa revealed that if her husband is sent off to Italy, they are going to divorce. So much for old-school values! Teresa has been seen holding hands with another, much younger man, but her attorney has assured the world that they are only friends. Really? That seems very friendly.
Real Housewives of New Jersey has always been about family. We watched former “OG” Caroline Manzo wrangle her brood, and became invested in Teresa Giudice and her extended family. These familial connections, whether close or strained, have always been the heart of this franchise. And so has the glorious food. Remember Kathy Wakile’s cannoli and dessert creations? Just please don’t bring sprinkle cookies to Teresa’s house. Or she might flip a table.
Teresa’s sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, had some tension last season with Teresa. Teresa found that Melissa’s inability to control her husband (and Teresa’s brother), Joe Gorga, was really annoying. Melissa remarked that there are some “shocking” moments in the upcoming season between the sisters-in-law. Melissa also discussed how she is taking on Danielle Staub next season. But what Melissa hasn’t done is tried to mend fences with RHONJ alum Kathy.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Guidice does not mince words. She clearly meant it when she said she wanted to “cut the cancer out” of her life. If you need a refresher, Teresa sat down with her cousins, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Peirri, at an empty restaurant during Season 7 of RHONJ to tell them she was done with having any sort of relationship. The moment was hard to watch, considering these weren’t fabricated friendships, but actual fam-bly (trademark Caroline Manzo) members.
I always thought Rosie should have been the full-time cast member because Kathy was way too normal for the show. Regardless, I enjoyed watching Kathy play peacemaker and make cannoli kits. Kathy came on RHONJ in a full-time capacity during Season 3. Things went as well as they could when you’re related to Teresa, until the Season 4 reunion. At the reunion, the cousins threw around awful remarks about each other’s parents. From there, Kathy was downgraded to “Friend of the Housewives.” Soon after Teresa accused her of not reaching out during her time in jail and officially “cut the cancer out.”
We are back with Instagram Roundup! This time we are trying it out on a monthly basis with a look back of the most interesting photos from this past month.
Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder shared engagement photos with new fiancé Beau Clark. The two them along with other cast members went to Vegas for Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s legal marriage ceremony. Yes, in case you weren’t aware, it wasn’t legal the first time they tied the knot, so they had to do it again.
It took Melissa Gorga a few years to admit to her
four nose jobs nose job, even though Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers definitely noticed. She only copped to the cosmetic enhancement when RHONJ OG Jacqueline Laurita screamed at her during the Season 7 cast trip in Vermont.
Jacqueline said that she got her nose done four times, but Melissa
only admitted to one said she went under the knife once. Oh, how times have changed. Recently, Melissa, Porsha Williams, and Sonja Morgan collaborating on a song and music video dedicated to plastic surgery. Now, Melissa is considering another cosmetic procedure.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jennifer Aydin is teasing what is coming up for Season 10, and it sounds epic! Jennifer said that we have the fiery Teresa Giudice back. Buckle up, and bolt down any tables in Teresa’s vicinity.
Tequila monster Jennifer and RHONJ co-star Melissa Gorga were seen arguing at a Hampton’s restaurant. In another incident, Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub continued their feud by throwing water at each other, and allegedly lighting a purse on fire. Yikes!
The event that Bravo fans have been waiting for is upon us. The first-ever BravoCon is going down November 15-17 in New York City. This announcement came a couple of months ago, but no other information was released until late last week.
The tickets are not on sale, yet, but they will be next week and there are options for different schedules and budgets. Although, the event isn’t cheap, by any means. Will this be the most epic event of all time? Or the reality TV equivalent of the Fyre Festival? Let’s hope for the former.
