Kathy Wakile

Kathy couldn't have asked for a better surprise on Christmas morning.

on Aug 3, 20110

Welcome back to Christmas in New Jersey. I hope that you all are enjoying our Christmas celebrations. I am enjoying the fact that Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are lasting a few weeks in these episodes. Those two days always seem to fly by in no time. It's great to be able to watch it go by over the course of a few weeks. 

Since my last blog was so long, I'm going to try and spare you all and get to the point. Besides, I think my fingers are still recuperating from last week.

It really bothers me that I have to start off by disagreeing with Teresa, but such is life. I don't feel that I was "messed up" or a "bad cousin" for inviting Joey and Melissa to Christmas Eve. On the contrary, I would have been messed up if I hadn't. When I invited Joey and Melissa they still had not been invited to Teresa's house and they didn't have plans to be together yet. They were trying to work things out, but their relationship was not back to normal and when I asked them. They told me that they hadn't heard from Teresa or any plans for Christmas Eve. When they accepted our invitation I told them that I was going to try and mend things with Teresa and that I would also invite the Giudices as well as my uncle and aunt. Because of our very friendly hello at the Gorga Christmas party, I wasn't feeling the Christmas cheer so I didn't invite Teresa.

Kathy ~ you ROCK! Hang in there. You've got a beautiful family, a kind heart, and if Teresa can't see that, shame on her.

Kathy, I think you're a wonderful mom and cousin. Tre is missing out by trying to be a "right fighter." Seems no matter what she hears she comes back with some stupid off the wall reason to prove that she is right and you're a witch. I think all of her fast success has gone to her head. before you came to the show, she was popular. Now other family members are getting great reviews and Tre is acting like a selfish spoiled brat! I am so disappointed in her and for all of you.

Hi Kathy,

I absolutely love the desserts you make on the show! Could you please post a picture of the buffet you made for Melissa and Joey's party? And the one from your Christmas Eve dinner?

You should consider a cook book to go with your new catering career - I would absolutely buy it!

Thanks for the inspiration,

Hi Kathy,

I love seeing your beautiful desserts that you make on the show! Could you please include a picture of the buffet you made for the party at Melissa and Joey's? And the one for your Christmas Eve dinner?

I know you are thinking of starting your catering business, but you should also consider a dessert cook book too (with pictures)! I would absolutely buy it!

Happy baking!

Kathy, I absolutely love the scenes with your kids. The interaction you and Richard have with your children is very endearing.When your daughter read her letter, I teared up. Lets not forget how absolutely adorable your son is. I love his quick wit and humor. When I see him in a scene, I know something funny is about to be said. Lastly, I want to congradulate you and Rich for showing the world what a beautiful marrIage you have. Thank you.

Kathy--I love your blog this week. You are a wonderful and understanding cousin to Teresa, a great cousin and aunt to Joe & Lady Gorga, and an even better mother and wife to your family!

i don't even know why you're on the show. Without Teresa, you would be boring as hell. And don't you live in a shack compared to the rest of the gals?

The show is his new wedding ring, too, Kathy! :-) Everyone will know he's married to a warm hearted, beautiful lady, now that you are all on the show! You are right though, it's what's in his heart, and it definitely exudes "happily married". hugs

i also enjoyed your Christmas. you family is lovely. i sorta think Teresa has a strange way of saying some things, i do believe she is a hand-full, but she has been in the public so much-well how would you react if you were walking in those boots-just saying.

Kathy,

I owe you an apology. As a loyal viewer, I set out to dislike both you and Melissa from the beginning. Melissa is still growing on me, but you, my dear, have completely won me over.

You obviously have great love for your family and it seems as if you are trying to do the right thing by Theresa....although I do have to say that I wish you had just let it go with the first "It's nice to see you" at the Christmas party. Hopefully, once Theresa is out from under the tremendous amount of stress she is under she will see that you are an important part of her life.

Your daughter's letter, along with the gift from your children and WHY they were giving it, made me cry like a baby. You are such a gifted mother and I can only hope my two daughters, who are 6 years and 17 months, will grow to have the same amount of respect for me as your children obviously have for you.

I hope that in the months since the holidays, things have settled down and you and Theresa have found your way back to each other.

It is nice to have a kind LADY like yourself on the show. Let's show [fill in blank] how to act, huh?

Still loving the Wakile's!

Season 2 more people may warm up to you...Rich is a hysterical guy, your lucky to have a man that is so in love with you!

Kathy,

If you love someone, you don't call them vulgar names such as f***ing b****. Such words are reserved for people you typically DISLIKE and DISRESPECT. Believe me, Teresa gets the message loud and clear. Boy with cousins like these, who needs enemies...

I think you are probably the most level headed and most sincere out of all the housewives on all the shows .You seem to be very understanding and kind for some reason i think you will stay true to who you are and not let this show change you as it has others that are involved with all the real housewives ...

Wow! How gracious and loving your children are! It's obvious that they love and respect their mamma. Who could ask for more? On another note, I've never heard of a husband who doesn't like wearing a wedding band, but to each his own, right? As long as you're ok with it, it doesn't really matter. I totally disagree with Teresa when she said you were being a bad cousin by not telling her brother to stay at her house." It wasn't your responsibility! They're adults, aren't they? They can make their own choices! And Teresa would have understood you caring about them mending their relationship if she had given you the time to explain it. So far in the season, she hasn't listened to you at all. She was just bitter because she hadn't been getting along with you and it bothered her to see her brother go off to be with your family. When it comes down to it, Teresa just needs to grow up a little.

Kathy sometimes I wonder about your motives when it comes to the other women; however, I think your heart really is in the right place. The snarkiness just creeps in once in awhile. I admire your love and devotion for your family; love those kids and husband of yours. Enjoy watching you.

Incredible mother, wife and friend. You are a true DIVA. You and Melissa are incredible stay on the right path and you will go far. Grace is everyting in a lady and someone forgot left that lesson out for Teresa. I can't believe she had Monica thrown out of the party. I can't believe she did what she did to you and I can't believe her husband ( pig is an understatement) said those things about Melissa. Teresa is so shallow ( no diamonds this year?), she makes a balloon look like it has some weight. Beautiful family, handsome, suave husband. You have it all!! This show should be about you and the Manzo's. I guarantee Teresa is coming out on the bottom this season. I hope there is a cook book in your future. I really want some of those baking ideas. I'll keep watching you and Melissa make good names for yourselves on this show. Kiss your hubby on the cheek for me. He is sooo cute! No I am not crazy, I have an incredible husband, I just love men with pizzaz!

Kathy, You are a woman to look up to!! The reason why you have so many blessings is because you appreciate them as they come along! As for Teresa, with everyone trying to make peace, she continues to get her digs in and keep this feud going. This episode shows that Teresa does not appreciate the blessings she has in her life, otherwise she would not have been asking where the diamonds were. Such an ingrate... It was Christmas morning, she was with her family, and she was complaining about the night before. At this point, she is just beating a dead horse. I guess it is easier for her to focus on you and Melissa than her finances and her husband's trouble at Motor Vehicles...

I understand why you keep the conflict with Teresa at the top of your to-do list. If it weren't for your bickering with Teresa, you're not interesting enough to get any air time on the show.

Kathy,

You and your family are a great addition to the show. However, I can not stand to watch you create issues and then try to play vicitim. I think you need to re-watch a few of the episodes. You did actually have a friendly hello at the Gorga's party, but YOU wanted to keep pushing Teresa until she got irritated and then boo hoo you went running and told everyone Teresa was not nice to you. I really hope they watch and see that you were pushing Teresa. Please own it when you start crap. Other than that I do like you and your family. Please make a real effort to mend things with Teresa and then cry if she acts a certain way. All you have done is confront her in public with cameras around. As a viewer the Danielle Staub bs caused me to stop watching and if that keeps up with you and Melissa I won't be able to finish the season...

Kathy- I have to say at first i didn't like you but as the season has gone on I have really grown to enjoy watching you and your family...you have done an amazing job raising two beautiful children who are very respectful and loving. keep doing you cause your good at it!

I watch you guys every sunday and I dont understand Teresa at first she was my fav housewife but since this season and now meeting you guys and the Gorga's things of her has changed and I feel like you have tried your best as well as the Gorga's with the Giudices. Joe Giudice stills talks crap about you guys and Gorga's and its not right. I feel you and Melissa have did your part. I pray everyday that blesses my fam as you and Melissa's. Just keep doing you and raising that beautiful family and loving the beautiful marriage you have!!

I think you are a good cousin. You are right, about the Gorga's not having any where to go. Caroline tried to explain that to Teresa and was not going to accept that, you took away her right to punish the Gorga by giving them somewhere else to go. You have a lovely family, just let Teresa do what ever she wants, she loses in the end.

It appears you've definitely put forth an effort to mend the fences between you and Teresa. You may not always have the best timing but you are at least trying. I think it was nice of Joey & Melissa to still come to your home since you extended an invite first and it was even nicer that you told them they could've stayed. That shows you're not trying to steal Teresa's thunder or her brother. I think she envies your relationship w/Joey. Hopefully, you all can reconnect and enjoy each others company. Theresa needs to lighten up and realize NOW is the time when she NEEDS her family.

Kathy~ You seem like a genuinely nice person...maybe to a fault? Your feud with Teresa started all because you felt the need to stick your nose in the middle of a family problem that had nothing to do with you. If Joey & Melissa had a problem with how Teresa had been treating them lately and then called her out on it...what does that have to do with you?? You CHOSE to put yourself in the middle and now you don't like being there. Also, why do you seem to choose public places to hash out your difference with her? You certainly saw how that worked out at the christening when Joey tried to do that. If the "time is now" why did you take so long to talk to her? Somehow you were able to immediately call up and visit with Caroline in a private setting. You need to take responsibility for your part in this drama. Melissa certainly has...maybe that's why she and Teresa have moved forward. Your "I'm a good Christian" act is wearing a little thin.

In an effort to end on a positive note...you have a great family. Your kids are so polite and respectful; and your husband is sweet - a big ham for the camera, but sweet.

Ok...I just typed a whole long comment and it is not there...LOL! I am just going to say that this week's episode brought me to tears. Kathy, to watch your kids rally together to support their mom and show you how much you meant to them, really touched my heart. You and your hubs are doing an amazing job. There are not too many teens today that value family as much as your kids do. I can only hope that my two little boys will grow up to be the same way. Good luck with your business venture!

Bottom line..regardless of which team the viewers are on..you and Melissa joined the show to exploit your grievances with Teresa. You both are pitiful. Again..grateful for DVR so I can fast forward through your segments.

Your kids are so terrific. I love how they presented speeches before presenting you w/the laptop for Christmas. As for Teresa, I think she is an instigator, yet she loves to play the victim. Over the past 3 seasons her true colors have come out. You, on the other hand, are a very nice, sincere lady.
