Which brings me to Rosie and her talk with Teresa. Rosie and I have always tried to stick up for and protect one another. Last week after my talk with Teresa I thought we were making progress. Isn’t that what happened at our lunch? Now it seems we’re doing the Texas Two Step. (Wait, aren’t we in Jersey?) It seems that with Teresa, every time we make a step forward, it turns into two steps backwards. Many of us in the family were questioning her sincerity, but I didn’t focus on that. I focused on what she was saying sitting across from me, looking into my eyes. Now, after hearing her conversation with my sister Rosie regarding the tabloids and other issues, I have so many questions all over again. I really don’t even want to go over the nonsense again. What I do want to say is the following:
Fact: I have never, ever spoken negatively about my cousin Teresa to any tabloid or have given damaging comments to the press. On the contrary, I have spoken highly of Teresa and sympathized with what she has been going through with the negative tabloid frenzy.
I continue to look forward to mending our relationship and have stated that many times.
Kathy, I am sure you have suffered enough having to live with that slug of a husband, but I have heard it said by you, that Rosie did not think you accepted her in your heart. I took Teresa's comment to mean, she hoped to get over her problems with her brother the same way you and Rosie did. Didn't Rosie stay away from the family for years. Everyone can see through Shrimpy Slow Joe how he want's to make up with his sister, the way he screamed and cursed at her in front of her kids at your house was just heart warming. The second the cameras went down at the doctors, when he forgot he was still miked up, he started fighting with her again. His parents house was paid off and they let him add his name and take out a giant mortgage on it, who does he think should pay for it. He and your husband are shameful.
Kathy, I hope you keep the all the family together because all families have problems and no one's perfect. Plus, your the most level headed one of all the housewives. And Always stay the bigger person your the positive influence on your children for our next generation. Keep your love for everyone.
I think Kathy is a great person. I like her in the show she is one of my favorites. She is real she try's to get along with everyone.
I cried when her mom was telling her story about her childhood. I got mad when Teresa said that Kathy was half Gorga. Her mom was born first before Teresa's dad was born. I think Teresa doesn't think before she speaks or say's something.
You are relly not using your brain. Kathy's Mom has the same mother and father as Teresa's Dad. No matter how many years between their birth, they are full brother and sister with the same parents.Even Kathy acknowledges it was stupid on her part to have acted confused.
Listen, this is all just so ridiculous. I happen to like Rosie a lot, but I thought it took a lot of nerve to go to Teresa's house and complain about one article calling you a "traitor" after Teresa has suffered hundreds of articles attacking her and her husband personally with really brutal stuff which multiplied TWO FOLD after you and Melissa joined. What was Rosie thinking? Listen Kathy, I happen to agree, you Were a traitor in regards to not caring what your actions would do to Teresa and her parents when you and Melissa joined to rip her apart behind her back time, and time again. You were! And Rosie was on a mission, she got the point acrooss at Teresa's asking her "Weren't Jacqueline and Caroline like family to you?" ---and then she went back to YOU, Richie, Melissa and Joe, and kept that point going, saying "I HATE to say it BUT I think Teresa is coming to you guys cuz her friends ditched her." No Rosie didn't HATE TO SAY IT; it was the POINT of her mission, cameras rolling, following her from Teresa's house to yours. Rosie knew what she was doing. Tersea looked shocked that Rosie would come over to complain about a rag magazine article calling you a traitor, after the BARAGE of hundreds of articles that have been written week after week about her, and I don't blame Teresa for looking shocked. Now ROSIE is playing the game to set Teresa up. If Rosie uses this ridiculous incident at the reunion to start bashing Teresa, and have a FIVE against one Teresa crucifixtiuon scene, Rosie has lost this viewer. Rosie went to Teresa's house, looked right into HER eyes, and shook her hand and said "let's put a stop to this together" and then raced back to your house to perpetuate the Teresa is horrible storyline. Looks like Teresa has yet ANOTHER family member determined to beat her up in the storyline to further their own storyline. Please Rosie---come on! You were doing so good. Don't fall into the easy trap of ganging up on Teresa, to joing the "pack's" storyline for airtime.
Even if it were true that you used to treat Rosie badly (which I don't believe it is), why would Teresa bring it up again?. She's the one who said that families should leave the past in the past and move on. It looks like Rosie has forgiven and moved on...maybe Teresa needs to take a tip from her!
lmg522 I was thinking the same thing why would Teresa bring up to Rosie about how her sister treated her, and she was just with her trying to rekindle their friendship.
Teresa has gone through more vile maneuvers and actions form Kathy, Melissa and her own brother than any human should EVER have to. They wanted what she had and they had no trouble trying to destroy her to get it. After all the things Kathy has said ON AIR about her cousin, the fact that Teresa is finally sticking up for herself, and people are harping on it is pitiful, and it clearly shows they are still grasping at straws to just ruin her. NOT GONNA WORK. That comment just pales in comparison to what Kathy has put out there. PLAES!! Teresa didn't realize until these talking heads bit as to what her own family was doing. How she will ever process it I don't know but Rosie saying "I hae to say it, but don't you think Teresa is just coming to us cuz her other "family" left" was such a set up. No Rosie, you didn't hate to say it. You said it once at Teresa's and then reiterated it back at your sister's where the vultures were waiting on camera to start ripping Teresa apart again. The whole thing didn't smell right at the beginning of Rosie's trip to the Guidice's where she moaned over Kathy's ONE comment in a rag magazine about being a "traitor" to the person who has been RAKED through the COALS in rag magazines. Again, it was a deliberate move on behalf of the vultures! Teresa should never forgive these pieces of trash for what they have done,,,ever. Rosie was the first one behaving properly, "normally" and after this last episode, I was shocked as it appears she is jumping on the "crucify Teresa" storyline to be relevant. If this one comment is hapred on at the reunion, then Rosie too is using Teresa is BAD storyline for her own aganda. It was nothing comaperd to the obviuous and blatant attack Teresa has been put through by herr own family and there is NO WAY Rosie does not realize this. It's just disgusting!!!
she was simply comparing herself and Joe to Rosie and kathy...saying you two went thru a tough time together and made up so maybe me and Joe can too. Why read into something tha is clearly not there? Just like Jaqueline did. Teresa used Chris cheating as an example to show Jaq why she shouldn'y get over she just found out about and Jaq ran off screaming Teresa was trashing her husband. So stupid. If it wasn't for Teresa there would be no jaqueline, what else does she talk about? We can only watch her whine and cry about her daughter so many times, its at the point I fast forward when she is on now. Caroline too,
Kathy, The only reason Teresa wants to be close to Rosie is because the fans love Rosie. Teresa wants to be friends with the popular kid... Not that she doesn't love Rosie. Teresa is all about conquer and divide and pitting people against each other. Her fans are as crazy as she is. I used to love to watch her but I can't hardly stand her now. I hope she gets it together before she loses everyone who ever loved her before she became in"Famous". Don't listen to the crazies... you were always cool.
Theresa_in_Indy I am a fan of Teresa's and I am far from crazy. I don't certainly want to watch a "hammered" Rosie every show. She needs to lay off the booze, as she looks like a fool!
When this was filmed Teresa had no idea how Rosie would be embraced.. Rosie went to Teresa's to talk about her sister being put through ONE comment in a rag magazines. Come on! She was complaining to the person who's been put through HELL in rag magazines. That was a set up. She went directly to Kathy's to say "I hate to say it, but Teresa may be wanting her family because her other family left" No Rosie, you didn't hate to say it, you said it twice, once at Teresa's: "Teresa, didn't you consider them family" and then raced to Kathy's to tell them the same thing. 'I hate to say it but Teresa may be wanting her family because her other family left" We aren't dumb. That whole thing smelled bad. There they were waiting at the other end , cameras rolling to just stick it to Teresa again. And BESIDES---hate to tell you all but Teresa isn't speaking to them at ALL now, once she realized what these pieces of trash have been doing to her, she's not "trying" to get her famaily back.She realizes who they are and she's protecting her daughters. They just keep crucifying her, her own brother is worthless, because without her they have nothing. They have built their careers on ruining Teresa--Joe's big sister. What a loser. I hope she never forgives them so they will slither back to the mud from which they came.I'm so sick of seeing Kathy debate the Teresa saga when she had a crucila hand in pushing her face in the dirt. I think Kathy is a horrible person for doing that. "Traitor" is the kindest word i have for her.
Kathy, I just love your family.Your husband is a hoot. Watch your back with Teresa because I don't think she is done causing trouble. I LOVE Rosie. I am so glad that we have gotten to see more of her. And your Mom, wow, what a life. She is a special woman. You have so much to be thankful for!
Mollybee62 I don't consider Richie a hoot. He does nothing but talk trash about Teresa. It is shameful!
can you blame him? They all sit around and bash his wife, he should say what he feels about those phonies.
yeah he is a real hoot when all he does is make fun of others and talk to his wife like she is stupid. I dont see the humor in anything he says or does.
Oh Kathy, your pretty smart, but we the viewers can see through glass and you my dear are very transparent. It is very obvious how your family and the Gorga's set up scenes to trash Teresa. It is really getting old and boring. Shame on you for trashing your cousin while she is trying to land on her feet, she has 4 daughters! I have never seen her act with the malice I have seen coming from the rest of you and that includes Jac and Caroline and her kids. Thank god she is strong and can over come the crap you all keep flinging at her. Your only savior is your sister Rosie and your kids, you my dear are irrelevant! The way you all blame Teresa for everything doesn't surprise that you all aren't blaming her for the heat wave in the east or the increase crime rate in Chicago or the last Tsunami.
Kathy, I really related to your Mothers story. My great-grandmother gave her youngest daughter to her younger sister, who couldn't have children. I didn't understand why my great aunt had two mothers. Thankfully, my great-grandmother, grandmother and her other brothers and sister all remained close. Maybe it's a Sicilian thing? You, you're kids and Rich are great. Stay real.
Kathy You have really showed a side of yourself that's really endearing. Nobody's perfect in life and who am I to say. I will say you have shown a deeply, rich side and introduced your family to the world. The kids are amazing and I wish your family well in the storm of craziness that surrounds some of your cast mates. T
Just want to show my love and support for you and your amazing family. You, Richie, the kids and Rosie are a joy to watch every week.
Ya know, you and Melissa really are BOTH, a piece of work. You jump on this blog within seconds of this show airing to write this blog because AHA--- That horrible Teresa insinuated something negative about you and well----- how dare she right? ALL you have done is insinuate and say what a horrible person Teresa is for two seasons for no other reason than that was the storyline Melissa set up, and that was the way for you to get the life Tersa had on a reality show. We watched you justify the attack in your mind by reiterating it over and over in every scene you were in. You started right off the bat Kathy. Wow, it really just infuriated you and Melissa that Teresa landed a reality show didn't it? You guys just worked yourself into a jealous frenzy those years didn't you? And she wasn't bringing yoi along and that is the problem. Now seeing how you two operate, who would BLAME her?? Not me! Well you got your chance, only the truth always comes out. Now you are hoping we forget everything you did. You were doing fine the last couple of weeks until you just couldn't help yourself on this blog. The sheer audacity for you to be angry with Teresa for a conversation after all you have said, done and your husband has said and done is infuriating. What do you say at the dinner table with all of the crap your husband has said about their cousin Teresa? I mean, we know Joe Guidice was reacting to what his wife's family DID to her, I give him a pass becasue we were screamimng the same things at home. Do you buck up and be honest and say "Well kids, the ends justified the means, we are famous and the show has given us glorious opportunities we never would have had otherwise, and your Dad and I not only sold our souls and tried to ruin cousin Teresa's life, but I have a cookbook on the horizon! It all worked out cuz Grandma and Aunt Rosie are so nice, pass the sauce."
MomLeader "infuriated"-really? That's the word u chose to describe how both Kathy and Melissa felt about Teresa Going downhill fast-bcuz everything caught up to her and her husband? Really? I would love to live Kathy and Melissa's life 100 x's B4 even being a fly living in Teresa's fake world! Their homes must b peaceful and they must get a good nights rest in their beautiful "legit" homes For not screwing anybody-ur girl that u so defend must b up all night! That's why those eye-bags hang as low as her loyalty to people! What show r u watching again? The twilight show version? She doesnt even look like the same innocent person she played out to b in seasons 1 &2-(til she started flipping tables and almost hitting Andy)She doesn't even make sense bcuz she cant keep up with her lies anymore!Unreal-u r so warped and really need 2 get a life of ur own and get examined! Kathy has been nothing but a good person and so has everybody else-except the common demonator (misspelled on purpose) or the common "ingrediences" like "Dr. Heckle and Mr.Jyde" Teresa! It never ceases to amaze me how people can watch weekly what Teresa does and still stick up for her! Seriously they must lack drama or something in their lives to keep egging it on and not seeing the facts in front of them! Kathy never says anything until Teresa attacks and when everybody else is bashing Fake-fame who*e Tre (rightfully so) she's always quiet-rewatch the show in slow motion if u don't catch it! It's obvious!! U saw and heard what she told Rosie and how quick she turned to her Fam when the Manzo's and Lauretis (which have supported her for years-even though they r only one-side conversations-I guess she's used to having those with amazing Joe) shut her down for selling her stories which she specifically said she did @ the hotel when she was getting ready for the wedding! She's never wrong and she doesn't c the damage she's causing! With people like u supporting her-she will never change and become a better person atleast for her children-look @ what has happened to poor Gia-how her husband speaks to her and how they committed so much fraud-even stealing Joe's brothers identity for a license! How she filed bankruptcy and is walking around making money? That doesn't say much for u if u support somebody like that-she's a monster! And it's not the Teresa show bcuz if it wasn't for the Manzo's she wouldn't have ever been on it! So anybody could have been on the show/Im glad it was her family so her mask finally came off! She's not better than them bcuz of the dishonest lifestyle she lives! If anything u can see the good still in Melissa, Kathy, Rosie and Manzo's-they r real family units with or without ur girl Tre! PS-Kathy ur an amazing mother, wife, cook and person/I'm glad ur on the show and get to share the positive things in ur life-like ur daughter getting better from her illness, ur amazing sister and mother-u truly have substance and r admirable! Teresa is a sad case-and it's sad how she plays and manipulates all that care about her-including the viewers! She's definitely no Bethany Frankel, I'll tell u that much! Check out "celebrity apprentice" and seasons 1-3 (and episodes 1-6 in season 4) of the Real Housewives of NJ-either with subtitles, in slow motion or 4x's or more-so u can see or finally grasp who Teresa is and yes, she's the one selling the stories 2 the tabloids bcuz not only has she admitted it on numerous occasions so have the tabloids and she herself said on the view that she got paid for each apology she wrote in the latest ok maga zeen (like she pronouces it)-if she was so righteous and such a victim why would she apologize 2 everybody??? Oh yeah she's getting paid for it! So I don't know if she thinks everybody suffers from dementia or she can't keep up with her lies, but I really don't think it was Jacqueline that leaked the details about the parents home-remember she won't even tell Jaqueline the truth bcuz then she can't double dip on the story! Hello wake up and smell the garbage-that's Teresa! The worst part is we only watch it for an hour and go back 2 our regular lives, but she has 2 wake up each day and think how she has ruined everything including her children by exposing everything 4 money-2 keep up with her fake lifestyle that her wonderful husband so brilliantly created by coning others including his own business partner.. She's just great! Her husband is right about her! PS-take some yoga classes 2-so u don't think others r "infuriated" bcuz their ditz, manipulating, fake cousin/sister in law got on a reality show b4 them, because of her horrible friends and they didn't? I think they r doing just as great and I'm sure u wouldn't b watching or would have nothing to comment on if they weren't on the show! Wow-some people!
I climb on these blogs and go directly to yours Kathy. I keep scrolling, and scrolling down looking for one I can "like." You see I do agree that your Mother and your sister are lovely. Agreed. But to me, it happens to be beside the point. Very much so. I think you have this entire Teresa mess that you are NOW seeing has a huge backlash, all over you. I read about the horrible things you have done in your sche,me with Melissa, and then tagged on that I read what a lovely family you have. Now while the latter part is true, I will not "like" anything that gives you anything other than a negative blog, because I believe it's entirely irrelevant how lovely your sister or Mother is. I think what is MORE relevant, is the fact that not only did you help just try and crucify Teresa on her own show, you made it POSSIBLE. Melissa could not have done this on her own. She needed credence and that is why it worked for so long. How could two otherwise normal women be willing to manippulate the nation against their family for fame? We didn't want to believe it. But it happens to be TRUE. You and Melissa wanted what Teresa had so bad you sold your soul Kathy. You! You Kathy Wakile, you sold your soul. And like another viewer said , I'm sure a cookbook will be coming, and I'm sure you will say "The fans want me to." That was very astutue from "Louise123" and I happen to agree. This blog is for the people who agree with me. That yes your family is lovely, but YOU are not, and we will not forget. And while you're basking in this newfound fame that you got at the misery of another family member, at appearences, at interviews, flying around the country to do talk shows, and working on this career that you got so cruelly, that you remember we are out here and remeber exaqctly how you got it, and that we are NOT behind you.
LisLwr I really like Kathys blog! She spends a lot of time writing about her mom and sister probably because they are close and dear to her and she wants to share that with others, instead of some of the other negative things. At least it isn't a totally hate filled blog like some other housewives! But if you would rather have her give you the details to how she schemed with Melissa to plot against Teresa...thats ok too I suppose!
Kathy, I actually really like you.... HOWEVER, I think teresa was right on the money about you/Rosie in the past.
The reason I think this?
You had to ASK your sister what her "type" was... seriously, if you accepted/embraced her homosexuality so much... wouldn't you two have discussed that years ago? I mean, in general people say things like "Wow, he's great looking"... or "Gheez I love Brad Pitt." Etc.
I'm not close at all with my sister, but I know exactly what her type is, the type of people she goes for, etc...
It's not a gay/straight thing... it's a matter of KNOWING each other.
It looked like your own sister was a stranger to you -- sad.
I really like you, Kathy!! I loved seeing your mother and really respect your emphasis on family. Though I don't know you, I can't see you as the kind of person wanting to cause Teresa any pain. So, hang in there.
Why can't you EVER say one good damn thing about your cousin? Teresa is busting her butt to support her family and she has done a great job getting out of a bad situation.
Teresa never meant any ill-will towards you when talking about you and Rosie. Look at all the crap that you dished out intentionally to hurt your own family. SMDH......
IsItJustMe Why would Tre bring it up then, if she never "meant any ill-will"? Tre was trying to stir the pot about the past between Rosie and Kathy. Wrong, wrong, wrong!
Uhg, uhg, uhg. The fact that you woudkl even write that Teresa has hurt YOUR feelings shows how stupid you think all of us are. I think you are as bad as Melissa, I do. You entered this crucifixtion holding the wood for Melissa. Melissa put Teresa on the cross, and you and Teresa's own brother drove the nails in. We then got to see Jacqueline and Caroline lift the cross up for all to taunt. It's all so completely transparent now Kathy. Just shut up. Your weasel of a husband is riding his newfound fame that he found just ridiculing your cousin, a woman, with just attrocious behvaior every scene he was in SIMPLY because bashing Teresa would get hus ugly mug on camera. Your husband repulses me. Sorry, but you guys have no problem slaughetring Joe Guidice in the public forum, so there ya go. I'm surprised after all YOUR husband stated, that Joe Gudice didn't come over and knock your husnband's lights out! Joe Guidice I think let you off easy calling you whatever juvenile name he did--your husband threw the first NUMEROUS punches. I hate the fact that you have a dessert cookbook coming. You will say "oh I know there are haters, but my fans are asking for it, blah,blah,blah" Your fans (the few) mind you, that you got at the expense of your nieces Kathy. You have made their life hell. Nice Aunt. I iope your future cookbook brings you ZERO success, as it has Teresa and her girl's blood all over it. Shame on you. Yes, your sister and Mother are lovely, but so was Hitler's. .....So what Kathy!
louise123 Damn Louise123 You hit it like no one else! I loved it and I would never support that snake Kathy! She thinks that the public will forgive her. NEVER
Loved your Moms story-- made me cry-- You are very blessed to still have her in your life... not to mention the Sunday dinners... I miss those days!!!
As Teresa has clearly stated , she does not store things in her brain. So you can't expect her to keep her story straight. Gosh please cut the old crow a break!
Kathy you have such an amazing family, beautiful children, a husband that absolutely adores you and an amazing relationship with your sister. I think you're correct in saying just laugh! Life is to short to be angry and discontent all the time. Laugh till it hurts then stop and breath, and laugh some more! Love ya! From a Proud USMCwife!
your mother is a beautiful wonderful lady, you are very luck to have a mother like her.
but i have to say that your husband is a sh*t starter, I have no doubt in my mind that he was the reason why you and theresa are no longer close. Furthermore, the things she said about theresa influences joey. I don't think that Joey will patch things up with Theresa if Richie is always there to bash Theresa and point out the things that she's doing wrong. You really have to assess what role your husband play in your cousins' rift. Please tell your husband to stop starting sh't between your cousins. And Kathi, you do talk badly about Theresa behind her back, you should really should watch past episode.
I believe that you and Rosie did not have a good relationship growing up, and I think it's normal. Some or most sisters do fight a lot, until they become grown adults. You should not take for granted that rosie agreed with Theresa when Theresa said that you did not treat her right growing up. From the story that Rosie told about the closet and the hand me downs, I think there are still some animosity.
Hope you get to read all of our comments...
Rosie's Communion story - the worst day of her life - was hilarious, sweet and adorable. When the picture of her was shown in her dress with the sandals, you just wanted to give that little girl a hug. Too cute.
OMG Kathy! I love watching you on the show! You are soooo real, and sweet and such a kind and wonderful person! I love watching you and your beautiful family interact on the show! I have to tell you that it made me LIVID on the last episode when Teresa found the need to get up there and tell all the viewers that "You hated Rosie for being gay!" Yet ANOTHER one of her many lies and the love between you and your sister is so heartwarming to watch and it seriously made me feel like strangeling Teresa with my bare hands! That girl is sooo mentally ill and soooo badly needs years of professional therapy! I don't think any of you all will be able to get through to her; and she only rags anyone out that trys to help her understand that she has problems and ends up lying on people or trying to bring them down instead of ever realizing that SHE is her PROBLEM! I just wish everyone would stop inviting Teresa and Joe anywhere; since they ruin every event that they attend! Joe's snide, ugly remarks about Gays and Lesbian's has gotten out of hand and shows what an ignorant, little man that he is! (When he got on with Andy Cohen and got asked about his remarks, he lied and said he is fine with them; when clearly he is so predjudice and a homophobe! The two of them are ruining the show, and I'd love it if everyone would just exclude them out of everything; so we wouldn't even have to see or hear either of them! Your sister is so cool and we love watching her when she is with you all. The story your mother told about what happened to her as a tiny child made me cry! She is a such a beautiful person and my heart aches that she had to go through that! She is a beautiful person, both inside and out; and you all are so blessed that she is a part of your lives! Stay sweet Kathy, but please stay away from Teresa! I do not want to see her try to bring you down, or hurt you like she did Jacquelilne (when she was only trying to help Teresa!) She must think we are all idiots to try to make us believe that all those hurtful, ugly remarks she puts in the tabloids about ALL of you all, got there by themselves and that she didn't say the remarks nor give any of that information to them to print! What a liar and a loser!!!
Uhg, can I write my feelinmgs in a nutshell? Yup, your Mother and Rosie are fabulous! Yup, agreed. Great people. Ummm, so what! I don't mean that disrespectfully, they are absolutely lovely!!!! BUT, they are a buffer to what YOU HAVE DONE. You signed onto this show to ruin Teresa. Absoluetly and without question. She had something you wanted- fame-cookbooks-gobs of money from the exposure of this show-fame, paparazzi, glamour.....You and Melissa wanted it Baaaaaad. And whether you agreed to it verbally or not, you teamed up together and used every scene to weasel into every corner of her life on this show. I don't care if your Mother is Mother Teresa and Rosie is the next President! (which I would vote for) I will never support your endeavors, and be a fan, a fan that you got from the misery of your cousin and her children. I will not supprt your cookbook, which I'm quite sure is the driving force behind your EVERYTHING that has led to this moment right now.... bam
Kathy- Are you kidding? Special people? They have done nothing but BAD MOUTH Theresa and her family all season. Plzzzzzzzzzzzzz tell me how that makes them "special"?
Kathy, I'll get right to the point. I actually joined this site to give my opinion which is out of character on my best day. I'm embarrassed to say I've watched from the beginning. I don't know why I feel the need to say that, but alas, there it is....I find your moves, entrance and mission on this show simply seedy. You have found out why and with who Melissa the show with to ruin your cousin on a show that is worldwide, and basically can change a person's life. Teresa was one of the lucky ones, finding great success on one of these shows and it was too much for you and Melissa. Forget Melissa, it's crystal clear as to her motives and wants. Both she and her husband are loathesome people and you were, and ARE, very well aware of their motives. You wanted what Teresa had, you wanted it bad and you clung to Melissa's plan; whether you actually spoke of the "plan" or not outloud? We'll never know, my guess is you didn't. But when you lay down at night, or are in a room together all alone, you three family members of Teresa's know eaxctly what you did and why. I am confident a cookbook is coming from you. I would bet my "practice" on it. Undoubtedly, you will say your "fans" have asked you for it, and perhaps that's true. Your "fans" however, are the very low percentile as we have seen from these blogs and you must know, that the majority knows these "fans" are the people you gained at the misery and attempted destruction of your cousin. I for one will not buy anything you release as it has Teresa's blood and that of her girls all over it.
Shame on you. There is no amount of money or fame that would make me go on TV and bash, hurt or tear down a family member.
I think you are getting an UNFAIR pass in your role to obliterate your cousin. While I think Melissa is just repuslive and not worthy of even a place on this show, I think your actions have been much worse because you have been in Teresa's life since birth, you grew up, played together, and are smack dab in the middle of what is suppose to be that glorious relationship between cousings that we Moms like to call "unconditional love" that cousins have. You not only knew what Melissa was doing, you helped her and I don't think Melissa could have pulled it off without you. Now because you have a sister we adore, and a nice Mother, we are suppose to forget, and more importantly, TERESA is suppose to forgive a cousin who came on this show to ruin her because you wanted what Teresa had. To date, even on this very blog, you are somehow trying to say Teresa offended YOU these last two years. That's just rich coming from the cousin who scrificed her to the woves so you you could get your mug on our TV. Bravo, keep Rosie and make Kathy a bit player. I cannot stomach another year of Kathy's husband who said and promoted vile things against another woman (Teresa,) and then judged and ridiculed her husband----the ONE family member who actually took a stand for Teresa while the rest of her family left her for dead in the street, after they are the ones who PLACED her there, so the remaining vultures could pick at the body.
I like you , feel like you are down to earth but disagree with you joining the show. Why couldn't you and Melissa just pass ? What dd you expect to get of joining besides $$$$$ ? You seem genuine, caring and understanding, but at the same time throw digs out re: Teresa or are just mean about her life issues. Can't quite figure it out. I've loved Teresa from season one, and still am on her side, just wish everyone could stop trying to make her life more difficult than it already is.
