Kathy Wakile: I Saw 'Sadness and Pain' in Rosie Before She Came Out

The NJ Housewives says true, honest moments "will change your life forever."

Sunday night's episode of Real Housewives of NJ was packed with emotion, thanks in large part to Rosie Pierri discussing with sister Kathy Wakile and her kids about how growing up gay impacted her, and how tough of a process coming out was. She held the truth in for years, and in Kathy's new blog post about the issue, the RHONJ star says it made Rosie moody and a bit of a recluse.

"Rosie would go from being so completely happy to other times when I would see such sadness and pain in her eyes. Sometimes she would even be so down and upset that we didn't spend much time together at all," Kathy writes in her blog, saying that on one occasion Rosie declined an invitation to a party Kathy was hosting for apparently no reason. "I was infuriated. Why was Rosie doing this? Why does she want to be so distant? I demanded an answer. Then it came, fast and furious. Rosie yelled at me, 'I don't want to come. I don't fit in, because I'm gay!'"



That's all it took to clear the air and repair the strain between them, Kathy says, saying that her response to Rosie's big admission was something along the lines of: "Phew, what took you so long? Everyone loves you for you."
