Real Housewives of New Jersey newbie Kathy Wakile was plenty familiar with the show, her cast mates, and the drama that came along with it before she signed on for the show (Teresa is her cousin after all). In fact, Kathy tells Socialite Life that she had major reservations "because I thought any little hiccup you may have in your life is going to be totally scrutinized, and every one of my experiences is going to be under the magnifying glass," she said.
And as viewers have seen, those experiences put Kathy in the middle an epic clash between her cousins Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga. "It's very hard when it does come up to not show that you are leaning one way towards another," she explained. "And even though it doesn't maybe directly affect you, it does ultimately affect you because you do love each and every one of them."
But to Kathy it's not important whether or not she's Team Teresa or Team Joe, she just wants to see her cousins resolve the issues at hand. "The ongoing goal is for them (Teresa and Joe) to be at peace and to have a great relationship."
