I am very proud of Victoria and Natasha for trying to make a difference at such a young age. They continue to get more organized and try to get more of their peers involved. Their club is only in the beginning stages, but off to a good start.
So now you know a little more about what makes us Wakile’s tick. Why I sometimes seem to take things so seriously and why Rich’s constant joking is just what the doctor ordered. We try to live each day to it’s fullest and grab the good.
I will leave you with best wishes for a fantastic week ahead, and a reminder to pay it forward.
Lots of Love,

I have to say there is more to you than you want the viewers to see. I think it's horrible that you are so close to Melissa with all this Teresa drama. You and Teresa are first cousins not you and Melissa, let Joe and Teresa work this out......and you stay waaaay out of it. They're brother and sister, you're a cousin, not their lawyer and Melissa is feeding off of you and then that fuels Joe Gorga's fire. You're a trouble maker and your husband is an Italian want to be. The show could do without the Wakiles.
I think that Joey did do the right thing by being honest about the whole drinking thing. You have to atleast give him credit for that
SHE IS NOT A TROUBLE MAKER, dont get me wrong, I LOVE LOVE THERESA.... But LORD,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, The christening, I would be mortified..... In my perpective, and Ive watched from day one........ I hate to say it,,,,, BUT THERESA IS THE TROUBLE MAKER,,,,,,,, and I do love her to death, she kills me. DONT BLAME THE GORGA'S DRAMA ON KATHY,,,,,,,,, MELISSA SHOULD TAKE SOME OF BLAME ALSO. kyct
you need to but out of the TERESA AND JOE stuff you never have good stuff to say ,stop and think about what you say.
Kathy, You obviously have a great family and are very close, which is why I am so surprised at your actions with Teresa. She is your "family". How can you turn on her? If you feel she is wrong somehow don't you feel its your obligation to tell her and do your part to help her through things? How can you betray her? You should be trying to encourge her AND her brother to reunite. You should not be talking behind her back or never, never allow other people to do so in front of you. Are you sure your Italian? I know many Italian families and they would never allow this behavior within family.
I really like you and am thankful to God that your daughter is well, she's beautiful as is your son. I just cannot see why you would be on Melissa's side .You come off as 2 faced talking about her and fueling the fire,gosh she is hurting and she will have to remember after all the dust has settled how much harder you all made it for her and her family, Actually with family like all of you (Melissa) who needs enemies she had no one to turn to,and when you go thru something like this it can make you sick because you can't sleep at night worrying if your kids will be on the streets and she could be losing everything, how would you of liked it when your baby was I'll if people turned on you like that.It's just evil to kick a dog when their down, you seem nice can't you see it.Is your hate so much that you don't want your family,family is what makes a life rich not money.I hope you can see past Melissa's poison before it's to late.
Kathy! Can I just say that this past episode where you talked about Victoria's brain tumor truly touched me? I am so amazed by the faith and strength that you and your family had during this hard time. Furthermore, it is breathtaking to see your family in this series. Your children are absolutely beautiful! And your son Joey is a true carbon copy of his father. I was cracking up when you had the kids read the contract. (Especially when Joey yawns and Rich asks: "Are we boring you?" and then Joey responds: "Yeah, a little bit.") How cute is he? Anyway, in regards to your relationship with Teresa, we as viewers don't the real story, but I do hope that if you haven't already, that the two of you work it out. I think if the Gorgas, Guidices and the Wakiles can actually come together and be a happy family that you guys would be unstoppable. Wish you all the best!
I actually like you better when you're at home w/your family and not medeling w/Teresa & Joey's business. You have wonderful children by the way!
Your kids are awesome and that says a lot about what kind of parents you and your husband are. Very impressed that your daughter was able to take her tragedy and do such positive things for other kids in her situation. My son was also treated at CHONY for a very rare and deadly birth defect and I know exactly how you felt going home with a child that would be healthy, leaving the sick ones behind. We are also paying it forward and trying to raise awareness and funds for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. Thank you for sharing your story.
I understand completely the fear and unbelief that was happening with your daughter. I found out last September that I had a tumor located in my brain. I had over 7 hours of surgery to find out that they were only able to remove 60 percent of the tumor. It is in a very small spot. I have two small children and worry every day if it will continue to grow and if I will have to go through the process again. Thank you for sharing your story because I think it is very helpful for others!
Kathy, I just love your family, your husband is a very humorus & handsome man. your children are beautiful. contiue to stay positve on the show & you'll do great.
Your family is awesome! I wish I could sit down with you and Rich and have dinner. You both seem so down to earth. It is obvious your man loves you.
I hope you and Teresa can mend your broken fences. Let her issues with Melissa be between them. Family is family and Teresa's kids need you in thier lives.
I just want to second what a previous viewer mentioned. Aren't you Teresa's cousin? Try acting like it. I think it is a disgrace how you are treating Teresa, and I am glad I don't have a cousin like you. Had it not been for Teresa, you nor Melissa would even be on the show.... I guess some people would sell their ssoul for fame.
Kathy, what an amazing story about your daughter. I am glad she made it thru and enjoys good health today. I also adore your son! He is such a character. I have to say, tho, you need to step it up on the blogs here and comment on the whole show not just your part in it. That is what you signed up for right? Or maybe just wanted a platform for a dessert cookbook? If that is the case just own it. People can see thru phoney. You seem like a nice person --Maybe you are just afraid to write something critical about the others. Just cant figure you out. Hoping to see more of the Real Kathy. I think i'd like her.
I love, love, love you and your family! You all should have your own show! Your son is hilarious and your daughter is beautiful. I look forward to seeing more of you all each week!
Kathy- Wow- what a family you have. What a great episode with you all. Your son made me laugh out loud. After seeing more of you I had a thought.... If you made a mends with Teresa and invited her over for a drink or better yet cook something together - it would get the ball rolling for the family to bond again. It breaks my heart to see your old family photos and how close you all were. I really think if Melissa and Joe see that you and Theresa have moved on then they would follow.After this weeks episode I can see you are a leader and a great mom. God bless you and your wonderful family.
So fantastic to learn about your family both of your kids seem great. I think your son has a future career as a comedian! I cried reading this blog. Looking forward to seeing more of you and your family this season.
Love you and your family on the show. My son sure related to Joey. Hope your daughter Victoria is doing fine. My nephew Ralphie is 6 yrs old and has a brain tumor and had a 12 hour operation the Monday after Xmas. He has been going through chemo and radiation since January. Hope everything turns out well for our family also. We will keep praying for your family.
You are a wonderful addition to this show, classy and a wonderful mother. Watching your family interact is refreshing, being a mother of 2 ( 2 yrs old and 12 wks) i have to say i love the contract idea. But really, how cute was your son when he brought up the drinking situation. Your daughter and your family are very brave dealing with what you all went through, I was in tears. Thank you for sharing such a hard topic.
I have to agree with some previous posts please get started on that cook book. My poor husband had the saddest look on his face when he saw your Thanksgiving spread, this year I made him break and bake cookies :)
I am glad your daughter is ok. Your son seems genuinely funny and nice. I just don't understand why you are so hard on Teresa. You are so obviously on Melissa's side. You should stop saying you want the family to makeup if you obviously are causing more of a problem....
Kathy, you seem like a very classy lady. I hope we get to see more of you this season and future seasons!
You should thank Teresa for all the support she gave you when Victoria was sick. You don't acknowledged her or her kids on your blogs. Very strange! She is the reason you are on TV, not Melissa! Gratitude, lady!
You are awesome! You are so mature and refreshing! Now I really know why you want the Gorgas and Guidices to get along, you have a real knowledge of possible profound loss and know petty differences and silly, childish hurt feelings are ridiculous. I would be so disgusted with the ridiculousness, I wouldn't talk to those people!
Love your kids and your family dynamic. Not loving how you take sides against Teresa- you should have stayed neutral. This means NO gossiping to Melissa about the Guidices.
Kathy...You are my fav housewife...possibly out of all of different cities. you are so different from most of these other women. I admire that you are strict with you kids(in a good way) and that you "pay it forward." Your family is so cute. Look forward to getting to know you and your family better.
I love the dynamics you and your family have. Victoria and Joey are just awesome kids, and Joey just cracked me up with his honesty. The communication you and Rich have with your kids is just amazing! I can't wait to see you and what you are cooking in the kitchen or baking in the oven. Your food always looks sooooo delicious!!!!
Kathy, I love that you are really a true friend. You always try to do the right thing. Love your family.
Kathy, your family is so beautiful. You were truly blessed from God. Strong women sure do run in your family. Thanks for sharing your story with us.
Kathy...God bless your family. I have tears in my eyes reading about Victoria's story. Prayer works wonders. Bravo to Victoria for trying to help others who face struggles in their lives!!
Your family has a wonderful dynamic and everything we've seen is so genuine. You are a welcome addition to the show =)
Why are you supporting Melissa? Like Caroline said on last episode, you send mixed vibes. You are shady!
Be careful playing both sides of the fence. Teresa was to smart for that, she saw right threw it when you tried to do it at the fashion show. Make sure you are on the right side of the fence to! Who's Melissa? An inlaw!
Blood is thicker then water as the saying goes, please remember that and by all accounts Joe and Melissa where the ones who ruined their own sons christening. Teresa was trying to be gracious and have a great time, to bad they didn't try to do the same at Teresa's daughter's christening! Its to bad they decided to sit in the corner like bumps on a log and disguise it as "knowing their place".
Like you say war has many casualties, so why don't you do your part and try to heal and fix this war. Do what you can to put an end to all this foolishness! One of the greatest things in this world is a brother/sister bond and its a shame that Teresa and Joe's is non-existent right now. You are their cousin, so instead of taking Melissa's side automatically, why not try to help mend your cousin's relationship.
You are a very pleasant addition to the cast. Keep up the class, don't worry about Caroline ("the godmother" as we call her) sometimes it is hard to look beyond your inner circle when you have been hand feeding them so long.
reading this blog made me like you so much more! not only is the struggle with your daughter inspirational but is proof of miracles. my only concern with you, is that you might be too close with melissa who seems like a very bad influence. your sweet, and a great mother but melissa looks like the type to turn you against people. would love to see you and teresa mend the family relationship without melissa gorga in the picture!!!
Kathy, you have been given such a blessing by the Lord. Her name is Victoria as God led you to that wonderful name. I nearly died as an infant and to this day I am very sickly and frail. But for as much pain and ill health I go through everyday, I pray to and thank our Lord Jesus for keeping my most precious and loving husband and kids safe and healthy for they are the ones that matter the most to me. I can handle being very sick and in pain. I don't know how I'd handle any of it if were any of them. I'm the kind of wife and mom that goes crazy if they have a bad cold or the flu. So please, now, with all that you've been through, try not to sweat the small stuff. Be honest and truly neutral when trying to bring peace between others. Try not to judge, and mostly pray for these situations and all the people going through them. Let God BE the judge. Let him guide you so you can do it HIS way, and not yours. God bless you and your family.
I agree with cheyeene28....Everybody on this show talks about how family is so important to them...But they seem to remain closer to the extended family members than the family they say that is so important. I know Joey G is your family as well., but why even just talk about how you and Theresa was once so close?...Cousins are very much like sisters...And since you say family is so important rather than just saying it...Do something about it..Be an encourager to Joey and Theresa and not let them get stuck on what they had said to each other.. Anyone can replace a wife, replace a husband...replace an in-law...BUT FAMILY IS FOREVER....
Kathy, Your children are close ... that is so important. Victoria is beautiful and strong and very lucky and blessed. It is gratifying to see that she realizes that. You and Richie are doing a good job. You point out that we finally saw the sweet Joey. I'm surprised you didn't mention how nice it was to see Teresa being gracious to her brother and his wife even though he lied to his niece and they didn't show up for her event. We also saw Melissa totally manipulate Joe, be rude to his mother, sister and brother in law and even comment that is OK for her husband to break a promise his Goaddaughter because T was late to a party?? I hoped you saw that. Especially after you comment that T and her family were there for you during your daughter's crisis. Oh, I also loved that you blogged that Victoria sponsers bake sales. How cute is it that the baking apple doesn't fall far from that Momma tree! You have a lot to proud of in those babies of yours.
