Welcome back, everyone! I hope that you all enjoyed the long holiday weekend. Happy Fourth of July!
Summer is in full swing, and I’m sitting on the deck of our summer beach rental as I type this. So needless to say, I don’t think this blog will be a long one.
I first want to tell all the amazing viewers my family and I have met over the last few weeks that you have been incredible. Everyone’s continued feedback and encouragement have been inspiring me to experiment further to create some delicious treats. It is such a joy to be able to make people happy with food.
So how does everyone like Christmas in July? I loved it. There’s something about this time of year. All at once it seems all things are possible. I think it may be all the preparations that get us to look at ourselves a bit more deeply.
Love you and your family. When I watch you interacting with them it is rather enjoyable, however, when you are around Melissa it seems that you worst comes out.
I really appreciate you not bashing Teresa this week. Great blog...I'm trying to like you. Don't spoil it.
When you are not involved in the Melissa and Teresa Drama you are enjoyable to watch. You and your husband have a great chemistry.
Its refreshing to see a nice blog from you! I like you and your family especially your husband!! He's such a crack up
you have finally listened to the viewers! You didn't bash teresa, but had been given the chance, you probably would have. Melissa is still is FAKE as ever!!! And tremember, teresa is dealing with alot. you are her family. Try and help her, not bring her down by talking about her behind her back!!!
Your toxic when your around Melissa!!! Also your in denial, you and your husband. Love your children though!
I love watching you and your family! I would not have watched rhonj this season if I had not loved you and your family, and Melissa and her family. I looked forward to watching every Sunday! Please know that there are a lot of people out here who may not vote on (Watch what happens) nor may not send comments but are rooting for you and Melissa! You both bring a special element to the show! Stay true to yourselves!
Hey kathy, was that a dig to Teresa and Joe's time together...simple dish of pasta? You keep saying you're not jealous of Teresa, but I think you are.
Who are you to say you are happy to see Theresa & Joe get their priorities in order? I guess you are insinuating that they didn't? Even if they didn't why did you feel the need to include that little undercover jab? You & "Potsie" & your passive agressive, attention seeking ways. When your husband(Potsie) made the comment abt he can just file bankruptcy too, this was so un-called for & tacky. Karma has a way & you nor that no-talent Melissa will ever be successful unless you make drastic changes in the way you treat people.
I would luv to see you do a cookbook on desserts!!! I really enjoy watching you and your family this season, it is nice to see a Jersey woman who is real and puts her family first and is not all about out spending everyone else on the show.
I was really looking forward to eating at your restaurant one day. What about doing an upscale lunch truck if you don't want to dive right in yet? I also think Teresa has anamosity towards you b/c you are always with Melissa. She probably feels Melissa stole her brother away from her and now you, her cousin. Hope it all works out for y'all & good luck with everything :)
With the technology we have these days, music producers can make just about anyone sound "good". We all heard her sing, and I must say the girl CAN'T sing. Apparently, you can't be honest about Melissa's singing abilities, but I can. Someone who is talented vocally always sounds good. Let's see what magic these producers will create...and they will thanks to cutting edge technology!
When you are not trashing your "blood" cousin, you can be tolerable. I enjoyed your husband on WWHL. He was funny; however, he was wrong that Melissa can sing. I don't know how many people need to tell you all this. We are the public that buys the music: Melissa isn't going to sell it!
I will be honest.. At first I was skeptical when new ladies joined the show this season (Kathy and Melissa), HOWEVER throughout the past episodes Kathy really has shown what an amazing mother, wife, cousin and person she is in general. Not only is she a strong woman but she has raised two gorgeous children with strong values/morals. She knows what she wants and what she expects out of family and out of life in general. She doesn't settle. Oh and she seems to be a really good cook too!.. If only more mothers/wives could share some of her qualities!.. Props to Kathy!
Loved watching you & your hubby on " Watch What Happens Live", you both are really down to earth and so funny!
Be yourself and do not bring the family drama in. Leave Teresa alone and let her hang herself (as she seems to be doing.) Do not get involved with Melissa's drama with Teresa and Joe. You and your family seem so loving and admirable. Your children seem so grounded and it also appears that they will become responsible, well respected, highly intelligent professionals as adults. I do not see this of the other cast mates children (except Caroline and Dena's children.) Good luck to you and your family. I hope we get to see more of you.
Kathy, I absutely luv you, dont listen to these idiots who think teresa has class. Team Melissa, Kathy and Caroline.
Really enjoyed watching you on WWHL tonight. You and Richie were great with Jay. You are so much better and down to earth when Melissa isn't around - why is that? Anyways, really getting to like the Wakile family -
I honestly do not think that you cause any more (or less) drama than anyone else on the show, however you and Melissa made a huge mistake by bashing Teresa right out of the gate. We have known Teresa through the show for a long time, and she has developed a strong fan base. Slamming her the way you did from the very beginning made her fans become vey defensive Teresa and Melissa may not realize it, but they are the same person. Let them resolve their own issues, and don't weigh in on the situation Keep those pastries coming
Kathy you are great person and a great mom i love your demeanor. I really hope you and teresa can get back to being where you are. I Love teresa , but i know how she can be at times, when she feels attacked she puts up an immediate defense instead of hearing all of the issue not just the part she didnt like. But dont stop trying, as the bigger cousin you know you have a greater influence on her , whether she realizes it or not.
As most other people say: I think you are acutally an enjoyable person to watch, once you're not around Melissa. You don't seem like you're malicious at heart, and i think your bad opinion about Teresa was inforced upon you by Melissa. She seems to be able to sway people. Other than that, I think your husband is very funny and your kids a really cute!
Kathy -- thank goodness you had the foresight to go to Al for his advice. Hopefuly you will act on it. While my "catering" experience was limited to working as an admin in the catering & sales dept. of a hotel, I can tell you those catering managers worked their butts off ... and they didn't do any cooking. Their hours were horrible and they had to endure many unpleasant experiences with ungrateful clients.
Kathy, out of all NJ housewives, you are my favorite. You have demonstrated more class than Teresa and Melissa. I am glad you are on the show, and stay cool regarding Teresa, she is NOT worth it.
Nice to read a blog that wasn't loaded with potshots at Teresa.
The jury's still out for me with you, but I adore your husband. He's got a great sense of humor. Read somewhere that he "pumps gas" and it was obvious the writer was trying to look down their nose. HA!! Wish my husband owned a gas station or two. All honest work is honorable. Your husband has provided well for his family. He's earned his respect.
You are right....everyone loves desserts! I would love for you to consider bringing them to QVC! I order food off QVC all the time. I love to buy Juniors Cheesecakes, Mrs. Prindables apples, and Cheryls cookies....My family loves them and everyone deserves a treat sometime. I think your desserts would be a real hit, especially during Holiday time when every Mom is stressed to the max and would like to give her family something special! Just a thought!!!
Kathy, love you and Richie! Keep it real, but I suppose the show will want more drama from you since they think that is what the viewers want. Maybe you could flip a table or two (LOL)!! Richie's sense of humor is wonderful. I love both your attitudes.
I think it is funny how everyone thinks that you are attacking Teresa when it is the other way around. You and Melissa are the only reasons I watch the show. You girls crack me up!
You & your husband ROCKED WWHL ! Enjoyed your interview and it's was charming & funny. Your my new favorite couple !
Kathy, i am glad that Al spoke to you both, because really taking on that big project surely will change your life. I think yu are a good decent woman, just stay out of the line of fire and be loyal to truth. Sorry Melissa is not truthful. Sorry! Joe GORGA is just blind by her and you seem to have a LOT more common sense! You have a beautiful solid family> Enjoy the perks of the show just stay OUT of the nastiness. Remember you know Teresa better longer and you should have a better take on what is going on than feeding into or falling into all of Melissa's snide remarks. It is ugly, she plays the victim poorly.
kathy i do think that you are influenced a little too much by Melissa when it comes to Teresa. Be your own woman i know you have it in you... TEAM TRE!!!
I love your family !!!! As a business owner myself I can not tell you how smart you both were about asking someone else, first step really in starting a business. What a gift you have for baking and I hope we see soon "Kathy's Kookies" or something like that :) I am so happy you joined the show, you do not bring "drama" and I like seeing that.
Could not believe last nite's vote between you and Teresa. You bring a fresh new sincerity to the show. All of you, your husband your kids your life. I guess Bravo thinks some of us want high drama all the time (like that ignorant woman Danielle), but we enjoy watching happy, healthy, honest to balance out the show. Stay with it Kathy, you are doing a great job!!!!!!
Teresa silly fake "money mad" life is getting annoying. I used to think Joe Guidy was creepy, but now I feel sorry for him.
Kathy, Love watching you with Rich & the kids...Great family dynamic. Your husband adores you & I can see why. =)
Kathy you and Rich are a welcome addition to the NJ housewives! Love you and your family........Your kids are wonderful!
Kathy all i can say is that you are one of the nicest person on the show aside from Jacqueline.I love it when you said in your last show"i was brought well"and how you don't pay attention to petty things.I honestly wasn't a fan at first seeing that you were taking the Gorga's side which i thought was unfair at first but as episodes flew by,i can tell that you are a good,down to earth person and i really like your personality.I am so sorry things didn't work out with you and Teresa in the show but i certainly hope you guys are making it work now.
Kathy, I think you and Rich are a great addition to the show. Please step out of the shadows of Melissa & Joe Gorga!
When you take the higher road and realize that you interfered with Joey and Theresa when you shouldnt have, your going to be a hit on the show.
I love how you and your husband are a team and you both love your children so much. You need to leave Theresa and Melissa to Theresa and Melissa and then, it will all come together for you.
The viewes like you but see you as a busy body. STOP. You deserve to have disdain from Theresa now. She has every right to be angry with you for taking sides. Melissa is not your sister or cousin. Theresa was and is.
Kathy. You seem to be solid and real and stuck between family members who don't appreciate each other. Life is so short. I would love to see your sweet desserts in a store near me. Looked wonderful. Or maybe QVC. May want to open a bakery. Love watching you and your family. A nice change. Your eyes tell exactly what you are feeling. Very expressive. Lucky you to have those eyes. Stay real and strong this season.
