Every one of them spilled some tea, thanks to Andy Cohen’sridiculously shady questions. For instance, Andy asked Frank when was the last time he and Dolores Catania had sex. Frank answered by taking a drink – indicating (to me at least) that it wasn’t too long ago. These guys were clearly having fun last night and definitely deserve a spinoff. Audience questions were good too, because one fan about Joe’s strained relationship with the Wakile’s.
Yesterday, there was a Real Housewives of New Jersey marathon on Bravo and I just happened to tune in to the scene with Teresa Giudicetelling her cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierrithat she wants to “cut the cancer out,” but that her “door is always open” if they really needed something. She basically fired them from the show at that moment.
Joe Gorgaand Melissa Gorgasided with Teresa (this one time) and that was the last season we saw Kathy. Recently, Kathy’s daughter Victoria Wakilegot married and there was an Instagram post addressing Joe and Melissa’s “absence” from the wedding. Fans who pay attention never actually expected the Gorgas to be there, so the headline itself didn’t make many waves. However, Kathy’s son Joseph Wakile responded with “Lmao we cut those farm animals out of our life years ago that’s why they weren’t in attendance.”
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.
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.”
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars were focused on the family time this week. Being mid-divorce did not stop Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Roger Mathewsfrom spending a Disney-themed day with their daughter.
Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder visited Amanda Batula (and presumably the rest of the Summer House cast) in the Hamptons. New York Housewife Ramona Singer shared her own photos from her latest Hamptons weekend.
