Yesterday, there was a Real Housewives of New Jersey marathon on Bravo and I just happened to tune in to the scene with Teresa Giudice telling her cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri that 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 Gorga and Melissa Gorga sided with Teresa (this one time) and that was the last season we saw Kathy. Recently, Kathy’s daughter Victoria Wakile got 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.
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.”
Below Deck’s Kate Chastain and Josiah Carter reunited in Palm Springs. Below Deck Mediterranean stars Hannah Ferrier and Jamie Jason shared a photo from Naples, Italy. Could they be filming Below Deck Med Season 4? Or are they just on a girls trip?
New Jersey Housewife Melissa Gorga went to the first New York Knicks game of the season with some friends. Real Housewives of Orange County’s tres amigas Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, and Tamra Judge all hung out rocking matching blazers.
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 Mathews from spending a Disney-themed day with their daughter.
Atlanta Housewife Kandi Burruss, her husband Todd Tucker, and her stepdaughter Kaela crashed her son Ace Tucker’s first school trip.
Teen Mom cast member Javi Marroquin practiced smiling for school pictures with his son Lincoln.
The family that gets extensions together, stays together right? Obviously that isn’t the old adage or even a saying at all, but if it was it would be applicable to Don’t Be Tardy stars Kim Zolciak and her daughters Brielle Biermann and Ariana Biermann.
Below Deck Mediterranean cast members Hannah Ferrier and Colin Macy-O’Toole both shared photos from Monaco. Could this mean that they are both filming Season 4 of the show? Let’s hope so.
Lisa Vanderpump, Tom Sandoval, Tom Schwartz, and their other partners just opened up their restaurant Tom Tom, so you know what that means: Instagram posts from all of the Vanderpump Rules cast members at Tom Tom.
Real Housewives of New York alum Jill Zarin even stopped by the new restaurant and took some photos, of course.
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.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies (including the newest addition Denise Richards) went to Bahamas for a girl trip and took some photos showing off their bathing suits (and bodies), of course.
The Jersey Shore cast has been promoting Part 2 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation and taking photos together, of course.
