Kathy Wakile

Kathy loves that Richie has big dreams for her restaurant.

on Jun 26, 20110

In this episode we see Christmas is approaching and the celebrating is starting. I always loved going to see my kids in their Christmas concerts and other holiday recitals that they had at school and church. When Melissa invited us to join her and Joey at Antonia's holiday dance recital, we were excited. We really miss our kids at that age. However Rich is really the biggest kid of all, always cracking jokes and either breaking the ice or sometimes annoying me. But I love him for it. He can never sit still for long enough, I think that he secretly wanted to get up and dance.

I'm so glad that my Aunt Antonia could be there and see little Antonia perform. Joey was thrilled too! He's so proud of his little princess. How lucky for Antonia to have both of her grandmothers there to cheer her on beaming with love and pride. That's what it's all about. These are lasting memories that stay with us forever and make our hearts sing.

I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive and has responded well to me and my family. I hope that through all the ups and downs you have seen us all go through so far, we have provided a few laughs as well.

See you all next week!

Lots of love,

Xoxo Kathy

Kathy-Best of Luck with your new catering business. I hope that Bravo hires you to do your own show on the catering business for the rich and famous! That would be a fun show to watch. You are a gem. God Bless you and your good husband and darling children.

Kathy, you and your family are a great addition to the show. You are very real and very witty. I loved the necklace you wore when you and your husband were talking to Albert Manzo about starting a restaurant. It was a chunky silver chain with various large blue stones on it. Where can I get one? Thanks!

Hey, it's not your fault you're related to Teresa. Don't kiss up to her. She deserves no respect. Sorry, it's true. Teresa is mean, nasty, and delusional. She and her bum-husband are out of control. Thank goodness for you and Melissa. Caroline and Jacquio pretending that Teresa is their friend and acting like Teresa is normal is sick crap. What a bunch of phonies. Teresa is a desperate fool. She needs to shut up and learn manners from smarter women, namely you and Melissa. The show stinks without you and Melissa. Please stay. Hopefully, Caroline, Jacqit, and Teresa Chuckalooney will get drunk and not show up. So fed up with their boring junk. LOVE YOU !!!!!

YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL

You always take the high road. People can learn a lot from watching you and listening to your comments. You're a real sweetheart. Your husband adores you. He's so cute. Your kids are so cool. I'm cracking up at some of the comments posted here. You are so nice and polished, but you've obviously got some crack-heads typing at you. Intelligent people love you, so worry not!!!!

i like you a lot

Kathy, Congrat's on your new venture. While reading the blog, I tend to agree with a lot of the viewers. You are first and foremost Teresa's Blood, Melissa is proving herself to be quite a manipulator and self focused woman. She will not be there in the end for you, she is the kind of person that smiles at your face while she is turning the knife in your back...Wake up..you can see how she went right from the meeting with Teresa where they made up, to talking trash about her to her sister her own husband doesn't even know what she's truly like, and if he does I am sure he is only there out of love for his family . She will do the same things to you, you will see. You need to make a special effort to reconnect with your real family, and reevaluate your friendship with Melissa, sad but true, she is only out for what she can get from anyone she comes in contact with, your no different.

Having watched you, Ritchie (who I actually really like), Melissa and Joe Gorga, I can understand why Teresa doesn't care for her famliy. You all treat her horribly and you all really suck!

I like Kathy and her family but.... I just wished Teresa and Kathy could patch things up on their own but it won't happen as long as Melissa and her sisters have your ear. You, Teresa and Joey were together long before Melissa and her trolls came into the picture. If you really watch and listen to all the episodes I think you will see just how underhanded Melissa's sisters are- even with Melissa! I almost fell for Melissa trying to resolve the issue with Teresa until she tried to say her eye rolling was her way of thinking-whatever! Then she takes low blows on Teresa using her own mother in law! Come on Kathy - you know that was soooo disrespectful. And look at Lysa telling Joey that she is his 'real' sister at the christening! Am I the only one that feels that was low and hurtful? Please Kathy, work it out with Teresa - just you and her. Don't allow ANYONE to influence you. You are a good person with a kind soul - you can do this!

Teresa is your family, not Melissa... Her and her nasty sister would throw you under the bus in a heartbeat.. You seem out of place and are disloyal to your family. Also BIG shocker.. you want to open a dessert business. Next you will be writing a cookbook like your cousin..

First, your husband is creepy. Maybe it is the glasses, but, he is freaky. I think you and Meilssa protest too much about having the perfect family, perfect husband, and the most money. That is probably why many viewers have issues with you. You talk about Teresa non-stop and not in a positive way. I have never been her biggest fan. However, she is the breadwinner for her family now and trying keep her head above water. There are two sides to every dispute but you and Melissa only want to hash out what she has done wrong. It takes a bigger person to admit when they have made a mistake. Maybe the both of you should try it.

I am going to try to keep this post positive. You have beautiful kids. I have nothing else nice to say, so I will quit while I'm ahead. I must say, lots of posts nail it for me to.

I know this won't get posted, but I hope you see it anyway. Out of respect for your Aunt and Uncle, please leave Teresa alone. That is their daughter, keep your opinions to yourself. Use another forum to launch your restaurant, quit trying to rob your cousin of her family, fans and her ability to become financially stable. Have you been to church lately?

Smart business lady you are! Definitely go after your dreams if the cooking world is where it's at. Bethenny came to housewives with a business plan and it turned our really well for her. I think you're taking a GREAT approach!

Best wishes!!!

PS. I LOVE how nice you are! I miss that from these "tell it like it is" wives. :)

Kathy!!! Okay so at the beginning I didn't like you so much because you were just tag teaming it with Melissa, setting yourselves up against Teresa. Then I saw your family, you away from the drama, and I really really liked you. Now, I'm just irritated again. Look, no one can say who is right and who is wrong. We see what we see on TV and that alone. But I mean, come on, you know you're being filmed and it's going to be used - why throw your own blood under the bus like that? You are constantly bashing Teresa but yet say nothing about how horrible Melissa is? Why is it so one sided? I mean you have to see where we as the viewers are coming from - it totally looks like you two were jealous of the spotlight and as soon as you catch some you start up a business and a singing career. Cut and dry that's what it looks like. Hopefully now that you are watching the show you can reflect back on how it played out. I do like you, I just have no respect for the way your family is being ripped apart. Honestly, if I were you and knew there was a feud before the show started, and knew that Melissa was going to be on the same show airing the dirty laundry, I wouldn't have joined. Any intelligent person knows where that's going. TV and fame are totally not worth it.

why are you on this show? your are clearly not in the same income bracket of the other ladies, including Teresa. this show is supposed to be about people who live fabulous lives, not people who drive 1993 Ferraris and live in ugly cap cod house in jersey. GO away

Your kids are precious, your husband a riot and you.....BORING! You're obviously a very good mother and wife, and you certainly carry yourself with a lot more class than Melissa. That, I love about you. But, honey, if you're going to be in this show you need to have a topic of conversation other than Teresa. I think that deep down, you envy the fact that Teresa has a life outside of her family. She may be having financial and marital difficulties, but she stands by her husband, sells her cookbooks and helps to support her family. I give her props, whether I like her or not.

Now you need to have something of your own so that you're not jealous of those who have that. And don't let your husband talk you into turning your dessert place idea into a restaurant. It's much better to start small and focus on your strengths, rather than bite off more than you can chew. You know what they say about "mindless spending..."

You don't work for your husband in the house and you're not going to work for him out of it huh? You have no idea what real work is... stop making ignorant comments and close your mouth for once. You are an embarrassment to your family.

I must admit I do enjoy you and your family. Yet I find it hard liking you because of your horrible behavoir - attitude - words about Teresa. Obviously ya'll had a falling out and Teresa has pushed you out and replaced you with her friends. They accept her, support her and even tell her when she is wrong. They LOVE her. Either you love her deep down or you don't. But please stop being so blind. Melissa is young and selfish - not untypical of a young gal whom marries into money and doesn't have to work. Also - she obviously likes to be the center of attention and if she doesn't get it - she is mean. Wake Up Gal - your loyalty is questionable. I think you are mad that Teresa wont have a sit down with you and doesn't care to rebond. WHEN PEOPLE ARE HAVING HARD TIMES - THEY STICK WITH THE PEOPLE WHOM LOVE THEM AND MAKE THEM FEEL SAFE - THAT APPARENTLY IS NOT YOU. OWN IT...... APOLOGIZE - SHE IS YOUR FAMILY - YOUR FAMILY - GOOSH

Kathy, I heard your restuarant is going to be the Bomb! I am excited to come and eat your food. So I didn't know you were related to BORAT and your going to name it Pakistan Deli & Desserts. Wow Melissa's going to be the belly dancer and Joey will be BORATS mini me. LOLOLOL. Your truly the big bugged eyed queen with many talents of a Gypsy's ass....

Your wannabe "big shot Italian" husband is disturbing and creepy. He's constantly mentioning Teresa, i think he may have a secret crush on her. he really wanted to bring up the Giudice's financial issues at the accountants' home. Joe Giudice should give him a wedgie really high up his you know what too. You bring nothing to the show excpt bashing Teresa 100% of the time. No wait I'll be fair 95 % of the time is more accurate.

Kathy, You have never addressed Melissa's behavior on the show, all you do is bash teresa on your blogs, I know you are seeing the same shows that we are... it shows your fake and taking sides.... and not as innocent as you would like us to believe...

Wow! I can't believe all the blog bashing you and melissa have received. You and your family appear so warm and friendly.

I TOTALLY agree that Teresa is a hyphocrite, in one moment doesn't want to talk the past and in her second sentence she brings up the past. But Teresa fans will ignore this.

I enjoy watching Teresa on screen, I don't agree with her actions and I couldn't be friends with her but she makes great tv so Teresa fans back off.

Oh TNgirl44, thank you for your funny yet perseptive comments, loved it! Kathy, has any of this gotten through to you yet? If not, then I suggest you call your restaurant AGIDA because that's what you and that miss piss make my stomach feel when I watch you bash your family. What a disgrace. Cadudo de disgrazia!!

KATHY, WOW!!! YOU AND MELISSA MAY HAVE SOME SERIOUS INTROSPECTION TO DO BEFORE YOU BLOG AGAIN (OR CONTINUE TO REMAIN ON THE SHOW). THE MAJORITY OF THESE FOLKS REALLY DO NOT CARE FOR THE WAY YOU DOUBLE TALK AND BACK STAB YOUR COUSIN. SHE HAS A HUGE FAN BASE! ALSO, IF THE SUCKING UP TO CAROLINE IS EVEN APPARENT TO US, DON'T YOU THINK CAROLINE OBSERVES IT-SHE'S VERY WISE! HERE'S AN IDEA: OPEN YOUR RESTAURANT (GOOD LUCK), BUY A PIANO, AND TAKE MELISSA WITH YOU! HAPPY ENDINGS ALL AROUND!

I think we're confusing bashing with honesty. If I'm on a show that supposedly portrays my real life, is it interesting if I hide my real thoughts in order not to offend anyone? I'm not talking about outright lies or slurs but if I have problems with someone even a relative isn't it expected that I would be open about my true feelings? Kathy has every right to express her feelings about Teresa and as viewers I think we should expect to hear them without sugarcoating. It doesn't make her evil. How many of us have 100% positive feelings about anyone? How many of us haven't express our negative feelings about a friend or relative to a trusted friend or close relative? The fun of the show is that we get to listen in on these conversations.

Why is it ok for Teresa to leverage BRAVO and RHWNJ to ‘write’ two cookbooks but not ok for Kathy to pursue her ambitions? For all of you gullible viewers, Teresa’s cookbooks are not rocket science. It’s basic Italian cooking. And if any Italian out there bought these books you should be ashamed of yourselves. These cookbooks are the only form of income Teresa has right now. If it wasn’t for BRAVO and RHWNJ Teresa would have been forced to foreclose on her home. Joe’s pizza is not good enough to keep them in that mansion. Kathy has every right to do what she loves and her desserts look like they actually require some talent and skill. And at least she seems to run a responsible household with her husband.

Kathy, what is wrong with you? Why do you have so much hate towards your cousing Teresa? Watching you on this show, made me so grateful to have wonderful cousins that are NOT like you. YOu seriously need to apologize to Teresa and move on. You and her have been close, and almost like sisters sinc e you guys were born. But, why do you turn against your own blood. The problem here is not your cousin but the evil Melissa and you must see this by now watching the shows, don't you? Then why do you still insist on taking Melissa's side on all your blogs. Stop it already and say something nice to your cousing and apologized. Put your pride down and own up to your mistakes. APOLOGIZE!!

Kathy....if something happened even 10 minutes ago, that is considered the past. Blast Teresa all you want, but the bottom line is, YOU and MELISSA are the ones clinging to the past. So please, do us all a favor and quit thinking we are blind and stupid. Not only is it insulting to the viewers, it is down right WRONG. BRAVO, please bring DINA BACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I knew as soon as I saw the desserts at Thanksgiving that you would start promoting either a cookbook or a restaurant, no need to let the Cash Cow named BRAVO TV pass you by without a good milking. You probably need to rush things up a little, you don't have much more time to promote your new business. The 15 minutes are almost up missy.

Kathy is the one who knows her cousin well, we the viewers don't.

Kathy, I like you and your family and I'm sorry I see equal bashing on all sides which includes Teresa.

You are going to get a lot of hate comments from her fan base but let it slide because I'm sure as the season progresses Teresa will do something typical of her actions and then try to say she was the one being nice and it was someone else's fault why she acted that way.

I would change your attitude real quick....especially since the only reason you are on this show is to promote your new catering business. Not buying into "all about family" for you it's all about self promotion.

Always getting your digs in for Teresa.....your not about family you are about you!!!!! Keep kissing up to Caroline and Jacqueline and wishing you were like them.....everyone sees you for who you are a phony and a kiss azz. Melissa is not your blood Teresa is, and by always taking Melissa's side just shows your jealous of Teresa. Grow up Kathy, i really see now why Teresa didnt want her family on the show.....you and Melissa are an embarrassment!!!!!

I have actually changed my mind about you. I understand where you are coming from. All families has some dysfunction. Teresa is in such denial. She has all these fancy new outfits a brand new car and seems to living the same lifestyle she has always lived. Now her husband is going to prison. She is definately not the sharpest knife in the kichen. I find you and your family quite refreshing.

Kathy, you have been hard to watch, you state " People think I'm Nice", does that idicate that you are a sheep in wolves clothing. Your constant meddling in to other family problems and clearly taking sides needs to stop. You apparently have enough going on in your own life, please show that side of your family life. Let's see the real Kathy, not one trying to cause trouble between family members, and states she was brought up RIGHT! Being brought up right would be to respect others, not just our elders.
