I don't know about you, but after Christmas and New Year's celebrating we all need something, something to lift those winter blahs that descend on us in January, especially here in New Jersey.
In the spirit of trying to keep up with my New Year's resolution, I tried to put my best foot forward. Since everyone usually has a dieting resolution, why not do a little lite bite evening...cocktails, small portions, a little music, some laughs, and sure, why not a little post holiday bling here and there, even if it's in my hair.
Even though I didn't know Caroline, Jacqueline, and Lauren all that well, we've all been through so many things in just a few short months that I thought the best way to chase those winter blues away would be to get together and have a fun gals' night in. I thought it would be a positive thing to think about each of the ladies and what they are truly best at. I wanted to find their best goddess-like qualities and let them know that I recognize and appreciated them. I honestly believe that each and every one of us has wonderful qualities to share with the world.
Jeez...I just start liking you and then I read your blog making fun of Teresa. I wouldn't call any of you cosmopolitan!
Kathy, I absolutely love you... You are a wonderful addition to this season. Your family is so down to earth. Your husband is hysterical and you both have respectful and amazing children. Teresa was very disrespectful at your party, but you took the high road and never said anything back. You are a true LADY...
Hang in there Kathy! You seem like a really nice person - don't let Teresa get to you, and don't stoop to her level.
Your lack of sophistication and class spoke higher volumes than Teresa's. Your entire family should be ashamed of your behavior. You insulted Teresa by saying she needed holy water and she insulted your cooking. Both of you are entitled to your own opinions. Recognize that, get over it, and stop letting your huge egos get in the way. All of you are a hot mess.
Get over yourself. You and your husband bash Theresa every chance you get. You and Melissa pushed your way into her world so you could both start your own businesses. Very obvious that Bravo is needing a bad guy this year and the they decided to make it Theresa. There is no NJ Housewives without Theresa!!!
Kathy...I do have to say that you don't suprise us. Once again you make more than half of your blog about Teresa.
Kathy, you're my absolute favorite housewife! I'm not sure how you stay cordial to Teresa when she says beyond hurtful and inappropriate things about you and your family. You're a truly classy woman!
Don't listen to the Team Teresa's. If they can't see that she and Joe got themselves into this mess, they are all blind. As far as you coming on the show to promote a business, hahaha, what do they think Teresa is doing? Or all of the housewives for that matter. You and your family are genuine. Like the Manzo's. Keep up the good work. AND PLEASE, for goodness sakes get your cookbook out there please!!!!
You make fun of Teresa's sophistication when you start the show with "People says I'm sweet"!! Really?
Kathy, I thought your party was a blast. I know I'd definitely would have enjoyed myself. I think that you and your family are the most functional in this show. By appearances, you all seem very happy and respect one another. I am not here to bash anyone but before you ridicule Kathy look at the whole picture. Her children are amazing and that only comes from excellent parenting which includes much caring, loving ,understanding and mutual respect. Kathy' and her family are a family that inspires us and makes us smile. To take a harsh look at her because of a reasonable reaction to comments made about her is in very poor taste.
Teresa was rude and everyone saw it. Some is kind enough to invite you to your home and all you do is act negative, stay at home. Kathie you are a class act despite what these negative bloggers say. Keep doing what you are doing.
You are such a hypocrite. You made just as many comments about Teresa as she made about you. GET OVER YOURSELF!!! It seems as thought you may be jealous because Teresa is the STAR and all you do is kiss up to Caroline.
Love you! Dont Listen to the haters! You are an amazng wife and mother, evidenced by your smart and sweet children. Keep doing you. There will always be people trying to bring you down. Teresa is just one of them.
Love you and your family! You showed such class at your party by not stooping to Teresa's level. Her behavior was infantile! The party looked like it was so much fun and the food looked amazing!
So your husband is entitled to speak his mind about Teresa here and there like everyone does on that show. However do you not find it lame for him to get so involved in girl drama? He is constantly talking about teresa or asking if shes going to be somewhere. Im pretty sure thats what Teresa meant by "obsessed" and she even got it wrong i think Richie's obsession is attention(did he not get it in HS? ) what other men do you see get this involved like he does? Next id like to tell you my mother is reserved, like many classy women ive met she doesnt tell the world her probs(esp. Legal ones) and she tries hard to stay strong and smile. Well i dont think less of her for it and same goes for Teresa. Sure after what shes beem through and her family going on the show behind her back, u think shes guna open up to u in front of the cameras n tell u stuff she cant even fully discuss? Id like to think you are just a good woman who got caught up in drama took Melissa's side and didnt think itd blow up in your face with Teresa. Well As you said, these are people, these are families, friends, its real and well i hope you and Melissa are proud of all this, Teresa is going through a tougher time now with a few friends less on top of that, and unfortunately her parents have to live through the rest of their lives with this drama between their kids and niece. Instead of focusing on Teresa do your own thing n worry about whats coming to you with friends like the ones u just chose. They did it to even Teresa, theyll do it to you.
Are you watching the same show we are? You and Rich and Melissa are so much worse then Teresa ever is. You all are very serious when you make your remarks and disgusting comments. Holy water??? Really? That's a disgrace. Thats a lack of sophistication and in my family we all get a big kick out of each other when we say silly or wrong things. That just shows us that she has a lot on her mind. Maybe you should talk to a "MEDIAN" or a "WENCH" and see what they think. Stop sucking the life out of Teresa. You are sure as heck not coming from a good place. Don't you see that Melissa repeats and twists everything Teresa says??? COME ON ALREADY!!!!
You make fun of Teresa when she misspeaks, but what about all of the words that Melissa messes up? Tersa's not perfect by any means, but you two never ever let up on her or cut her some slack. This show was her thing that you two just had to get a piece of. It would have been different if the two of you had gotten reality shows on your own instead of coming in to what was Teresa's that she went out and got on her own.
Kathy I hope Bravo post this blog-
First, I just want to say if you were not the close to your "cousin" then WHY did you come on the SHOW?
Second, why, why, why, why, why, why does your husband in EVERY single episode say "F--- Teresa?" I mean really??? He said at the Christmas Party, he said it before the cameras, he said at the New Year's Party, he said before she the goddness party! I mean does he want to "F---" Teresa?? because he sure says the word a lot!
You don't hear any of the other men speaking that way about any of the other ladies.
So before you lash out at Teresa, maybe you need to '
PUT YOUR HUSBAND IN CHECK!- I'm just saying.
Reread your comments on Ashlee and Jacqueline. Maybe that is how you should be talking about your family troubles.
You are the pot calling the kettle black. Pick Pick Pick on Theresa but you the so called "nice" one thinks Theresa should just sit there and say " you are right Kathy." Get over yourself. Could love you but don't and won't with all the Theresa bashing. You aren't any better then her in the "obnoxious" attitude.
Kathy Not a huge fan but your party looked fun! I wish too you can write a blog without soooo much bashing of Teresa. Melissa got that ALL wrong by the way. Teresa NEVER referenced your husband in a sexual way. Really wrong to twist that!
Kathy, Your Goddess Party looked amazing! I felt bad when Teresa made the comments about not liking the parsley in the food. Best of luck to you and your catering business. I am glad you chose not to respond to any of the comments from Teresa but you also need to refrain from listening to the gossip from Melissa.
I've tried but it's so difficult to like you. You love to stir the pot and hurt Teresa. I can't even imagine what you and Melissa were thinking when you signed on to this show knowing that it was going to cause a major rift with Teresa and that it would be national entertainment. What a classy broad you are!
it seems as if you and rich say mean things about teresa every chance you get. it's not necessary at all. it seems like you are jealous of her and thats why you joined the show, to get rich quick by bashing teresa. good luck in your future endeavors, nevertheless, but this shouldnt have been the way to do it. other than your bashing of teresa, you would have been a good addition to the show
Get over yourself. You and your husband bash Theresa every chance you get. You and Melissa pushed your way into her world so you could both start your own businesses. Very obvious that Bravo is needing a bad guy this year and the they decided to make it Theresa. There is no NJ Housewives without Theresa!!! .
how come it is okay for you and rich to make mean comments about teresa but you get offended if teresa makes a comment about you??? you should to try to write one blog without mentioning teresa!! I bet you can't!!
Kathy, I LOVE you nad your family. your hubby is awesome and your kids are amazing. You did a great job raising them! I love watching you cook. Cooking is one of my hobbies and everything you make looks amazing!! Im glad you are on the show and wish you and your family much happiness and blessings
It amazing to me that you can have empathy for Jacqueline and her struggles but fail to notice that your own cousin is having equally, if not greater, difficulties and problems. Where's your support for Teresa? Don't get me wrong, Teresa, didn't act appropriately at your party (and, she has been out of sorts for quite sometime). After reading her recent blog, it makes sense because she spoke from her heart. In order to receive grace, one must give it first. As long as you and Melissa continue to criticize Teresa and hold her in the place that you both want to keep her, it's never going to get better. Despite her stiff upper lip, Teresa is struggling. I can see it, and I don't even know her. You do! Are you going to help lift her up? That's what friends do... never mind family.
Look, I get it. T's not your favorite. I don't think you rank high with her either. But if you can be sympathetic to Jaqueline and Ashlee's situation and ask for people to be respectful because of going through a hard time, why can't you do it for your own blood? Someone has to be the grown-up and take the high road. If your so cosmo, why not it be you. Worry about your own behavior and the rest will take care of itself. T's no saint, I will admit. Her behavior is on her, but your behavior (and words) are on you.
Why would these commentors expect you to take the high road when Teresa, so blatantly, put down your efforts at your goddess party. As a matter of fact you really could have slammed her but didn't. I've always liked Teresa -- she's always cracked me up --but this episode showed her to be a bit small-minded. She couldn't even let you have the "you're a good mother" praise without horning in. I thought you did a wonderful job -- the food looked appetizing and you provided an intimate, fun setting for the other housewives. Kudos
Kathy, I love how you raise your children and that you are in a great marriage. You do not have to cook, speak and marry into your ethnic background or culture, you are true to yourself and your roots and still know how to embrace another! I can not wait to see your hand in Latin food! Mexican rice cakes? Paella? How about your taste in Chinese Food, dumblings? fish? :) LOL! I love how you keep moving forward in spite of the foolishness of your "cousin" Teresa! And I love how Jaqueline praised your relationship with your daughter. You have to DEFEND yourself against Teresa antics, PURE & SIMPLE! LOVE you! WE NEED YOUR DESSERT COOKBOOK! WHAT WILL IT BE CALLED?~~
You and your family seem so great! You're obviously a fantastic mom. But I cringe every time you knock Teresa. It just doesn't seem to fit with how great you seem to be in all other ways. Stay true to yourself and your family values. Teresa may be mean-spirited, but I don't know how you don't see how the conversation you and Melissa had before the party was not mean-spirited? And Melissa's comments during that conversaion were insulting to you. AND APPALLING that she made them in front of your daughter. That was just classless and gross.
Unbelieveable!! Here we go again!! Geez, you spend more time thinking and talking about Teresa(than she does)! Positive?! making fun of your cousin time and time again, keep writing these blogs it only shows why Teresa was so bitter and angry, you convince me more than she ever could. Funny how you didn't once again mention you and Melissa talking about a family member like the two of you continue to do. Stop throwing stones! Stop preaching this crap unless you start living by it, everyone has good qualities, how about name five of Teresa's? Stop making fun of way someone speaks! Everyone is quirky in their own way. You take such great offense when someone says anything negative about you and yet you are the first at swinging mud Teresa's way. I can actually tell you and Teresa are cousins by the way you both act sometimes.
Everything looked so yummy! Loved the little serving glasses too! Wow, what are you going to do when Melissa and Teresa make up? Don't you see Melissa is using you? Guessing fame is more important than family. And speaking of family, you need to muzzle that husband - he is getting too offensive and shows no respect to your family.
Hopefully, when Caroline and Jacquelin watch this episode, they will realize who you and Melissa really are; it's become so obvious that you worked your way onto this show to cause trouble for Teresa (as if she didn't already have enough trouble). You should be ashamed of yourself.
What's so sophisticated about the "holy water" comments you made? Personally, I find them offensive and blatantly lacking any form of taste. Teresa's behavior may be in poor taste, but so is yours.
Kathy, I could like you if you'd stop with the petty sidebar comments about Teresa. Don't you see how disingenuous and phony you appear to be?
I love your son. He cracks me up! Both of your kids are awesome.
Teresa doesn't have to bash you to make you or your husband look bad, you two do it for her & probably even better! Classless is the word that comes to mind when I hear Kathy & I hope that you truly aren't that way. You & Rich need to get over yourselves & soon. I love that it wasn't ok for her to have an opinion about your cooking, but you can say she needs holy water & your spineless husband can rant on & on about her & her cookbooks. I'm wondering if every recipe that you have is 110% yours or if they were passed down by friends or family members or even from cookbooks or the internet. As far as I'm concerned she has never said that those recipes were all her. Maybe old Rich should start acting like a man & not a snotty housewife.
You are right about Teresa needing to be the center of attention all the time. I thought it was very rude to insult your food and hospitality after you were gracious enough to invite her to your home after everything that has happened. and to the poster who dissed you about the Holy water, in all fairness that was Rich and his idea of a joke it was not Kathys doing she was simply explaining to Melissa why it was sitting there when she asked. Tired of everyone putting down Kathy and Melissa all the time when they have been the ones making all the effort so far to get along with Teresa.
you sure can dish it but can't take it. Your "soft and calm" demeanor towards others until you are with Melissa or your husband and your true colors come out. You bash Theresa as much as she bashes you. By the way, your husband is the worse bully on the show, i do not find him funny at all and the way you allow him to speak about your flesh and blood is unbelievable.
