I was so happy that Teresa came in to share her feelings with me about what she thought I said to her when Rich and I went to show our support at her book signing. I have to admit though, I was starting to second guess myself and feel bad. I couldn’t remember if I said they were my mom’s recipes. I just couldn’t remember. I certainly didn’t want to fight with her over cookies. Thankfully after watching this week’s episode I’m happy to see that my memory did in fact serve me correctly. I’m glad we are all in agreement that I never said the word “recipe.”
My mom always shared her recipes with all of her sister-in-laws. That’s what families do; that’s what I do. I’m always on the phone with my friends and family playing recipe swap.
kathy, when you first was on the show ,i wasnt sure about you,but i love your sense of humor and your a friend thats true,would love it if you did a cookbook with all the desserts you make,evertime you have a party it looks amazing,and yummy,i think that your good for the show,you show a different side thats kinda is like a mother type,which is good,people just want to be around you,just be carfull with teresa,she always has mean motives when she wants you in her life, and i get that you want that relashonship that you had when you were kids back ,but that teresa has gone along time ago,sad to me, family means everything to me too,i will continue to watch the show, keep being the awseome person you are kathy,
Kathy, you have every right to be offended when T (i refuse to type her entire name) put her hands on you. Anyone would have been offended . On top of that, she touched you 3-4 four more times after you told her not to. Don't let her take it out on you anymore. She really is cruel towards you and does not deserve your kindness.
You have the most genuine talent of any of the others on the show. i do have to say that the Theresa bashing puts you in a dimmer light. If you weren't related to her, do you think you would even be on the show...food for thought. Stick to being a foodie, it is more interesting than the catty crap, if you come out with a cookbook, i would buy it!
Can you please make a dessert cookbook! I want some of your recipes you make on the show. Stay real and I love watching you and your family on the show, you all are so down to earth dont let fame turn you into something your not like it has to some of your fellow castmates.
Kathy, you really are a nice person and believe me , I know you can only bang your head against the wall for so long before you've had enough. Just don't even engage with those people...so not worth your time or energy. You are great!
There is nothing normal about what you said to Teresa. Knowing her as well as you should, to say to her as you browse her book anything that even hints that the recipes in her book were yours or your mothers was just asking for hurt feelings. Further proof, when she confronted you alone to tell you she was hurt by your insinuation, was the fact that you went to Melissa and said something to her about it. You are not an innocent in this. I think you are just jealous that she beat you to the punch by publishing cookbooks before you could. She has capitalized on this show just as Betheny has, maybe not to the extent that Betheny has but she is well on her way. The only thing you could do was to bake your ass off to try to sell your baked goods. Opening a bakery was too much work and you couldn't very well write a cookbook after Teresa already had. Your jealousy is showing.... You try to use the difference between "my mothers cookies" and "my mothers recipes" to try to hide your snide remark, but it's not working.
I watched the cookie episode again and yes you were implying that cookies were from your mom's recipe. In addition, when you left you made another about not knowing if Teresa was even good at baking. Another shot. There is room for both of you to be successful. Please stop being so JEALOUS!
@vierachick sorry disagree, but everyone has a right to their own opinion. I never thought she was a good fit with the other housewives, just not in the same league. And now that her true colers have come out, I dont find her to be attractive inside or outside.
vierachick Kathy is the most unattractive housewife, and I'm not just talking physically. I think she is a bad person on the inside. How she treats Teresa is disgusting, and then telling all her fans to go to hell, is unforgivable. Kathy is done.
Teresa needed allies on the show (looking to recruit soldiers for her army)… Teresa wants her friends to be her soldiers in her army. My dad was an army colonel, so I recognize military tactics. I wasn’t looking to get drafted.” – Jacqueline Laurita, ‘Don’t Get It Twisted’, June 27, 2012 and ‘Spin City’, May 7, 2012
“Well, well it looks like the #ArmyOfIdiots is recruiting some new soldiers again. When u all get to HELL make sure u tell the DEVIL I sent u.” - Kathy Wakile, August 7, 2012, Twitter
Wow, saw a copy of your tweet so it was in fact really tweeted. I've always held back making comments toward you because even though what you have done to Teresa is just despicable, you are still obviously a good mother to two good kids and that says something. I wouldn't want your kids feeling bad. But NOW, wow, do you realize you just called a bunch of other moms out there idiots and warned us "we" are going to hell? I still would like to make a comment about the Devil and what I think of YOUR relationship with him...but because of your kids, I will still keep quiet.
So what was it about the fans that pushed your button yesterday? Could it really be "cookie gate"...OR.. was it the gaining voice of fans asking Bravo to bring back Danielle? Does that worry you or something?
(sigh) Still at it I see... just couldn't leave it alone about the recipes.... Don't you all ever get tired of this volley ball game you're playing with Teresa??
That is exactly what she meant, because when other people read it on twitter and called her out on it regarding not liking her behavior and supporting Teresa, and why she was calling people the army of idiots, Kathy then blocked these people. All this shows is that Kathy is really not a nice person, and she certainly is two faced. Kathy does not care about, love or support Teresa. We have seen this, and when Bravo shows reruns and someone tweets something new when they watched the reruns, Kathy put up the tweet about the army of idiots and them going to hell, and for them to tell the devil when they get there, that Kathy sent them. Is that the comment of a nice person? I don't think so, and as many have said they are acting for the cameras. If any of the viewers are idiots, it is for watching this trash, and supporting anything the Wakiles, Manzos, Lauritas, and Gorgas have to offer, as they are the ones that are constantly tweeting something nasty to viewers. I will give Teresa credit, that if she doesn't like something that someone tweets (and I am sure there is), she ignores it and doesn't tweet nasty comments back to them. These women really are the bottom of the barrel.
The WORST thing you can do is ATTACK the fans. Without the fans, you have no show and without the show you have no " PRODUCT " and without the product, you are back to being an average PLAIN JANE in New Jersey with a gas pumping foul mouth man for a husband. Get it
SavannahNichole If it wasn't regarding Teresa fans then she wouldn't have taken it down. She would have left it up and tweeted after that tweet that it was was not meant toward Teresa and her fans and apologized for the misunderstanding. Seriously, how many "army of idiots" could a person have in her life? If not Teresa's fans, who else do you think would be an "army" she couldn't stand? If there really was another army she is feuding with then the woman has issues. Let's be real and not try to twist what she did.
SavannahNichole Well, According to Kathy and the gang, we have to "read between the lines". With regards to that advice they gave us about 2 years ago, we fans have been reading between the lines. :)
As the guy you keep referring to let me respond.
Kathy has been in the spotlight for two years now. She has not just been on Jersey Housewives as part of the gang of bullies tearing down Teresa, but she along with the other bullies, (castmates, their husbands, adult children, roomate of adult children and sisters of castmates) have been tweeting, blogging and using media appearances to take her down. They have been relentless with the constant stream of criticism directed at Teresa, her husband and her children.
I am on twitter so I get to see it first hand. After Kathy made the tweet, she was asked to clarify, she failed to do so. She just started block everyone's inquiries. Many of her and the other bullies do not always use Teresa's & families names, but common sense would dictate on whom their referring. Expecially since that is all they ever talk about!!!
For example, Melissa had a nasty tweet about an 11 year old getting a limo ride after the singing/danceing episode. Did she say Gia? Absolutely not, but in fact she was reffering to Gia. The Manzo adult children tweet constantly about Teresa, do they always say Teresa, no, but everyone knows who they are talking about. The roomate of the Manzo adult children is promoting a nasty twitter account about Milania. Am I making this up? Look it up and see for yourself.
Kathy went after Milania on WWHL. She got caught lying on national television by Elisabeth Hasselback on The View. Please you tube this and see for yourself. She is not a nice person and has said and done horrible things to the Giudice family.
I have only touched the surface with examples, but if you don't believe me, look it up for yourself.
Also, if Kathy's tweet is not about Teresa, I will drink a whole case of black water. Until then, I will stick to Fabellini.
Also, I am a proud member of super T's Fierce and Fabulicious Army, where we only drink Fabelinni, cook from Fabulicious, use Milania hair care products.
Leopard_Man_ Jason, it is apparent that you don't get out enough...step away from the computer and get a life.
Thank you for the lovely comment. That is wonderful you have such a rich and fulfilling life. Since, you are able post comments and lead such an active and busy existence, I wish you the best in your future projects. Too bad your standard doesn't apply to others.
Cheers, (drinking a glass of Fabellini)
debharrington I agree but I wanted to like her, tried to like her, but getting called an Idiot that will go to hell ... that was the straw that broke this camels back. Lost all respect here.
Too bad you did not get a new gig like all the OTHER housewifes before you and your family got dumped from the show.....wishful thinking!!!
Did Kathy really say that on twitter, that Teresa fans are an army of idiots and that we are going to hell and she will tell the devil who sent them? Did anyone make a copy of it before she took it down? I'd just like to know for sure it is real and not a rumor before I post what I really want to say to her if she did indeed tweet that...
Christiann52 Wow! Thanks for the link Christiann52. Clicked directly to it from your post. Shame on her!
A lot people want to be famous. Some will do anything to achieve it. Most don't fully understand the meaning of The Price of Fame. Most will let their fans inflate their egos, while some will let their egos infuriate their fans. Many are foolish enough to believe they can escape the relentless scrutiny of the media and their fans. Some Flourish - Some Fail.
You might ask, what's the difference between a Movie Star and a Reality Star? At the end of the day Johnny Depp isn't a chocolate making, scissor handed, Mad Hatter gangster pirate barber that grows corn. But, at the end of the same day, you aren't a fictional character brought to life by someone's imagination. You are the person we see and hear and we the viewers can hold you accountable for your actions (whether out right or implied) - just like every other REAL person.
FANS WILL MAKE YOU OR BREAK YOU,
ARMY OF IDIOTS
Louise 123 wrote exactly what millions of viewers have felt for the last 2 seasons, wow! It was PERFECT & so well written! The only problem is, it seems that yours truly, Andy Cohen, and the producers must feel different from the majority of viewers, therefore, allowing the brutal blood bath to take place at last year’s reunion, and continuing on through another season. We’ve ALL written blogs, emails, and letters begging and pleading to REMOVE Kathy (and Mellissa) from the show, to no avail. I wonder if Andy is also enjoying the attempted demise of Teresa because of old grudges from Joe Guidice’s crass comments. As the reunion will soon air, hopefully the questions Andy chooses to ask, esp. how Mellissa and Kathy slithered their way on this show, and the conversations between Mellissa and Danielle will be addressed. I too, am not a Teresa fan, but a fan of the show, & am dissappointed by Kathy's recent Twitter rants. Addressing the fans as armyofidiots is so disrespectful to the fans of the show. Hoping this rant will land her in the same position as Jill Z.
kathy...maybe the sponsors of NBCUNIVERSAL would not like the idea of Teresa idiot fans boycotting them because of something you tweeted....just saying
you may not have a job after this
I would encourage you to model to others how you think all of you should behave. It would be interesting....
Your twitter comment yesterday about Teresa's fans as an army of idiots who will be going to hell was totally inapproptiate. Quite the opposite, Teresa fans are upset with you and the rest of the gang of bullies constantly trashing her and her family. Do the right thing and delete the defamatory tweet.
Leopard_Man_ couldn't agree more. I wonder if Andy knows this is how Kathy talks to fans of the show.
I sure hope Andy addresses all this tweeting nonsense at the reunion. Jac and Kathy need to be held accountable for all their mean and hateful tweets!
SavannahNichole Annie003 mzjulesAZ
YOU KNOW EXACTLY what she meant,,,,by her intentionally leaving out the names, probably saved her butt from her bosses wrath!
I can't believe she did that! This is reality television Kathy. I have been a fan since the first season and my favorite housewife has changed from one to the other and the other and back. This season Teresa happens to be my favorite because of you and the other women.
Calling me, as a fan of Teresa, an idiot is certainly not going to advance your dreams. It seems you have cut off your nose to spite your face.
Not certain if you will ever succeed in "branding" yourself, but, be rest assured I will not be purchasing your product. Who is the real idiot here?
One more thing, how would you feel if Joe said he would like to burn you at the stake? Classly, Kathy, real classy.
yea, well this "army of idiots," the hundreds and thousands of fans that put Teresa on the NYTimes bestseller list will NOT buy Kathy's cookbook. That coome yesterday solidified everything I thought was true.
SavannahNichole RHWvwr Leopard_Man_ I WOULD NEVER BUY HER COOKBOOKS. HER DESSERT REVIEWS SUCK!!!!!
Bravobloger@Tampa love your comment....Kathy just nailed the stake in her own coffin. She lost the housewife fan base with that tweet. Even people who don't like Teresa, are offended by her tweet. Its must run in her family, her husband says disgusting/stupid things all the time.
SavannahNichole karmascoming Tampa Its call Karma for a reason Savannah. Bad people deserve the bad things that happen to them. Kathy is a terrible cousin, and will have to face the consequences of her actions. She is an adult, and should have thought things through. Its not my fault she tweets ridiculous things, and has turn the fan base against her. No one will care once her family is fired. Everyone will move on, and she will be a housewife of the past.
Kathey and Melissa EARNED the negative comments from the viewers because of how they acted on camera. Its not about being nasty to them, its simply commenting on their behavior on the show. Thats what this blog site is all about. RHoNJ wants viewer interaction with their cast. It promotes the show.
SavannahNichole AND that's EXACTLY what has been going on with Teresa... What's the difference??
Bravobloger@Tampa Leopard_Man_ I don't follow her, but as of 7:25 PST she hasn't deleted the tweet. What does that say about her moral fiber? I can't wait to hear her spin on this.
You are right; I haven't read the treat, but outside of anything, it is no one's place to judge who is going to hell or not; big sin.
Do you find it interesting, though, that when Teresa says nasty things that her fans say she is defensive due to all of the "attacks" she has faced (read back on the comments; it is said more than once). So, if you follow that logic, would it not be fair then to say that Kathy lashed out due to being attacked so brutally by "fans", as she has been on this site alone? I AM NOT JUSTIFYING WHAT SHE DID. I just get so tired of the unfairness of so many, and you seem like a logical person, so I wondered if you saw any issue with the double set of standards, even though we are on opposite sides of the fence in terms of our assessment of the whole RHWNJ current situation.
coloitalian Leopard_Man_ It's not the same standards coloitalian. Family members talking about each other and defending each other or offending each other is one thing. Family and friends disrespect each other, it's a part of life. What Kathy did in this tweet, (if she did it, I'd still like some proof because I didn't see it with my own eyes) was blast people who give her a paycheck, the viewers. I've stuck up for Teresa on these blogs but also had a soft spot for Kathy thinking if anything those two cousins could have made up. But now, she pretty much blasted me with that tweet too. Even though I'm a Teresa supporter I was a half hearted Kathy supporter too.
Kathy signed up for this show and agreed to put her life and family on a reality tv show. If your going to sell yourself (and that is what you do when people agree to do reality tv, they are selling their story or person and hoping to develop fame and a fan base) you have to be able to take the fans good or bad and realize not everyone is going to like what your "selling". Without fans, there is no show so there needs to be a level of respect for them. She was on The View today (a rerun). Whoopie, Joy and especially Elizabeth voice their opinions everyday and they openly say they get hate mail all the time for those views they chose to share, it's their choice to be on the View so they have to take the good and the bad. How do you think it would go over with Barbara Walters if Elizabeth came on and said all the people who agreed with Rosie a few years back were an army of idiots and going to hell? The standards that Barbara sets, I bet Elizabeth would have been fired. You don't attack the viewers.
Again, I'd still like to know for sure Kathy really tweeted this and hope someone has back up on it because if she did, she needs to go.
