Wow, you have no storyline without Teresa. Jealousy, jealousy. Teresa may forgive her brother, but never you. You jumped on the bandwagon just because you could, and to have a shot at reality show fame and a piece of the Bravo Pie. You had a product (baking) on your first episode, and helped Joe and Melissa try and ruin Teresa.  J-E-A-L-O-U-S. You sit on the sidelines, then inject passive aggressive comments. It was a perfect storm for you with the rest of the cast wanting to take Teresa down. You were a bit player who added another layer on the big picture---unforgivable. If I were Teresa, I would never speak to you again. I was really hoping you and your husband would be going this year, uhg. SNOOZEFEST that's mean-spirited. A terrible combination.

Stop with the plastic surgeries. I thought you were beautiful and exotic looking before you had work done. Now? Not so much.  You look more like Teresa now.  Not a good look.

I have to say that my opinions of others on he show have changed greatly over the years. You are a breath of fresh air... drama, drama, drama. I understand the show needs a little, but the constant bickering sometimes gets soooo annoying that I have to change the channel. I want to see you and Teresa make up; she needs your level head; needs someone to bring her back to reality. Sometimes all the emotion on the reunion shows caused some hurtful exchanging of words, but family is family...

Looking forward to seeing you again on the upcoming season.  It was nice to know that everyone in Teresa's family is not as dishonest and delusional as she is.   Please have Rosie there.  She is a blast.

Wow Kathy I know this would be the last thing you want to hear but you've well and truly out classed that screaming cousin of yours T.....can't even say her name. Oh and please convince your sister Rosie to be on the show full time, Australia loves you

You are so passive aggressive.  You've stirred and initiated some of the worst things that have happened on the show, and your holier than thou attitude is ridiculous. You're in denial.  Water seeks it's own level, and the people you're with are on the same level as you are or you wouldn't be with them. You are not blameless. Your husband is blatantly crude and his attacks alienate everyone.  All the two of you do is judge everyone else by your standards. It also clear that you're not getting the same amount of attention as the rest of the women and that you're jealous. You hate the Giudices but it clear that you're jealous.  I still can't figure out why you're on the show.

Kathy,

    I get you're pissed at Teresa, but THERE WAS NO REASON FOR YOU TO INSULT HER PARENTS (calling her mother a "liar" and her father a "coward"... REALLY)!!!!!!!! What really bothered me was that Melissa sat right there by you when you insulted her father-in-law and mother-in-law, AND SHE SAID NOTHING (but was offended when Teresa brought up your family, what sense did that make). You and Teresa seemed to have had a great relationship in the past, but I totally agree with Teresa when she called you "garbage" for dissing her parents (there was no need to hit below the belt like that)! Kathy, you're a terrific wife and mother (I love the playful way you and Richie interact with each other, it's so sweet)!!!!!! Honestly, I really hope everything works out for ALL OF YOU (Gorgas, Guidices, and Wakiles).

Your behaviour on the reunion showed us the true you.  You knew how to hurt teresa so you went after her parents on live tv..shame on you!  If melissa and joe had any sense at all, they should use that reason alone to stay away from you considering it was joes parents you just slammed. You and your mean husband need to just fade away and go back to whatever it is that you actually do..?  Why did you come onto the show?  It looks like you did only to bash and ruin teresa because you never was friend and you sure didn't behave like a cousin.  You started the fight that got caroline and teresa fighting and teresa eventually leaving to go home.  You had nerve going into her room to try and explain that you loved her and that you never meant to cause any problems...OKAY..??  You and caroline are probably the meanest and you sure do make a pair lol.  I don't think you have to worry about your husband going anywhere because honestly girl, you would be the only one who would want that one.   I see that you did some changes to your face but you should have done some repairs on your second one!

you're a supreme moron kathy.  you called out joe guidice for accusing jac of being a stripper on the reunion, but in reality jac brought it up herself--twice--because she needed that badly to be part of the conversation.

Kathy,

 

Unfortunately for you, blood is not thicker than water.  From day one, I seriously doubt that you ever liked Teresa, and she's your cousin!.  You may not see this in yourself- but you are very passive-agressive towards her.  Almost, like there is an underlying resentment and hate.  Her cookbook tour, you stompled in there declaring these were your mother's recipes.  Heck, I'll bet you can find those 'same recipes" on the foodnetwork.  Really?  You tried to embarass her publicly.  Next, take the toast, for example, why are you seeking her to include you.  Maybe you have never felt like she considered you family and are seeking her approval.  Perhaps, that is where the resentment lies.  But, why?  Why do you need her to include you as part of her and her brothers family to make you feel like you are part of the family too?  Clearly, she has issues with him.  Sure, it would have been nice to include you in the toast, but, she spent most of the time in the same vehicle as her brother and his wife.  She has wanted a relationship with her brother for a while and he her.  She was acknowledging that.  Then, later that night, you go and trip her up again.  You knew you started it, and felt guilty.  Perhaps, this is your subconscious payback for her not including you.  Grow up!   Life isn't always about you.  If you have these underlying issues, be an adult and deal with them.  Stop trying to blame her for your resentments.  I know this is harsh to say, but, sometimes we have a tendancy to blame others and not understand why we are reacting the way that we are.  Search your soul and find out.

So maybe our dreams have come true, you will no longer be on the show!    Maybe you should have really given your behavior some thought.   Calling fans of the show an army of idiots and calling you eldelry aunt and uncle names finally showed everyone what we saw the entire time.   At least you got a new face, new patio furniture, and landscaping.   Thank good news you are done forever-something you should remember-not to bite the hands that feeds you

Just watched the episode where your darling mother revealed what happened to her as a little girl. I had seen it before, but I cried so hard to think of a mother leaving her 5 year old with another relative to be raised by them. I have a 5 year old and thinking of this made me unable to contain my tears. I know that was in the old country, but your mom is so beyond strong and her forgiveness is beautiful. Such a lesson for everyone. Thank you for sharing your fabulous family with the audience. Your sister Rosie is amazing as well.

Without you four ladies I wouldn't watch this show I feel connected to the four of you . And your sister is great as well she seams at peace with herself . I hope there's a season 5 just with you four

Kathy I'm from a lrge family & yes arguments insue, but nothing like I watch on the show. There is one common denominator with everyone, Teresa! Joe /mellisa was right, she needs to fall before she sees what's she's done. Maybe when joe goes to a well deserved jail term, and she's a single parent, maaaybe she'll smarten up. The group did everything they could to help her. Treat her like an addict. Let her hit rock bottom. She needs it. You seem like a wonderful person, the type I would have in my group of crazy women. We love our families, cherish our friends. Be a constant in mellissas life, she needs friends like you and your family. Teresa is missing out on a wonderful relationship with a brother who adored her. Y osh, someone needs to talk to Teresa's parents. What the hell are they thinking believing the bs out of Teresa's mouth. I try to be a peace maker with my kids, but never take sides. If my sister acted like Teresa I would of thumped her a long time ago. I've got 5 sisters. Same goes with cousins. It's the Canadian ideology coming out of me. Instead of saying all the things Teresa does wrong, it'll take less time to tell the things she does right. Nope, can't think of 1 thing.

Kathy, God Bless you for trying to be a peace-maker between Teresa and Caroline.  I feel your heart on that one and I know you just wanted everyone to get along.  Of course, it turned into a narcissistic Teresa rant and it got worse.  At the very least, Caroline got to finally tell Teresa she was out of her life for good.  Not the outcome you wanted, but it was cleansing for Caroline to finally say it out loud, I'm sure.  You have a wonderful family and you really need to keep away from the toxic drama.  Sit back, relax and let them go.  It's not your problem, you tried, it clearly will never work considering those involved.  I wish you nothing but the very best.

when everyone on the trip was getting along and Kathy started bringing up all that old recipe book/caroline crap I was quite surprised, not to mention she made sure caroline was within earshot, before that, I believed that she truly did want to do the right thing and that she wasn't doing anything to drive a wedge between Theresa's friends and family...

You have been a true lady in all of the conflict that reared its ugly head this season.  Keep on being who you are and you will continue to shine.  I can honestly say that I have liked you from the first time you came on the show.  Don't change and keep taking the high road.  In the end, you will reap the reward's if you haven't already.

i feel like the reason you and rosie were supposedly fighting before, because of a girlfriend "leading her down the wrong path,"  seems conveniently rehearsed.  i think it's the excuse you came up with before the reunion.  i think tre told the truth on the show and at the reunion.  i do believe you used to shun your sister.  you can fool some of the people some of the time...

 @JRoc85 Look, if T wanted to call her mother as a witness, which is what she did, Kathy had a right to call her a liar.  T also pulled her dad into the conversation; if she wants them out of bounds, she should leave them there.  Personally, I believe that T's parent probably are not honest; she learned the constant lying from somewhere.  The woman cannot even tell the truth when it makes her look like a fool.

@sonnyboy . Soonyboy, go yank your chain. She has every right to sick up for herself against a self absorbed, weirdo like Teresa.

 WOW!  Like the drama much?  Kathy didn't 'stomple' into anywhere.  Teresa however has stomped all over everyone, from Danielle to Jac and everyone in between. 

 

It sure would be nice if you looked at things as they are and not as you wish them to be for Teresa's sake.

 @MsCommonSense Seriously, they're related and families share recipes. They might not have always been dysfunctional? Anyway, when have you seen Teresa make any desserts on the show?

 @melsweet doesn't make sense that she would hate Rosie and then be so accepting. and why would Rosie not say anything if her sister was putting on a front. AND was disgusting joe who made all the crude comments about Rosie being a lesbian IN ADDITION of what he said to/about Greg.

How in the world can you just dream up that two sisters do not know their own past?  Trying to dream up a scenario to fit your own delusions is kind of like...well....ahhhhhhh...I get it...you are a Teresa fan.  LOL

 @melsweet I disagree.  On one of the episodes when Rosie's sexual orientation was being addressed, Kathy spoke of having met a couple of woman that Rosie had dated--one she liked, and one she absolutely  hated.  So it sounds pretty plausible to me.

@Annie003 @NorthernWolf . Seriously if you don't like someone, why look at the site? Go and look at someone else's and leave positive comments for them and not negative ones. Isn't there enough negativity in the world?

@rnkat@melsweet

When Rosie and Teresa were speaking one on one...  Teresa said to Rosie - when Kathy shunned her when she was younger, she (Teresa) was always including her.  I am pretty sure if that was not true, Rosie would have spoken up as we know Rosie does in a very honest way. The girlfriend was later in Rosie's life - so it does appear that the time line of Kathy not including Rosie and girlfriend association do not match up

 

Story was tweaked to help Kathy save face- I go with the untweaked version.

 @Bonz25  @rnkat  @melsweet

 She was there for Rosie based on what?  Because she spun a tale and no one wants to engage in her vile comments about others any longer?

 @rnkat  @Bonz25  @melsweet If Teresa was wrong in her assessment, Rosie would have let her have it right then and there. She's no wallflower. She has a voice and has proven that she knows how to use it. I think all this new information coming to light is to try and not make her sister looks so bad (who she loves very much by the way so it's understandable that Rosie would "tweek" her story)

rnkat
rnkat

 @Bonz25  @rnkat  @debharrington  @melsweet I get your point, and I'm sorry about the tabloid stuff.  Here's the thing--we only have TERESA saying that she was there for Rosie, Rosie later refuted this.  I can understand her not doing so at the time, and here is why--my best friend used to recount stories about the two of us, in front of me, and these stories NEVER HAPPENED.  She kind of made them up in her head, and believed them.  I never refuted her, because it was just pointless to do so.  I think the same thing happens with Teresa.  I have seen her recount stories to other people, especially to her husband, and I would say to myself, that is not what I saw AT ALL.  I think to a certain extent, Teresa lives in her own world.  And I believe the original point that I was trying to refute was the Kathy "shunned" her sister, and I still don't believe that ever happened.  

Bonz25

 @rnkat  @debharrington  @melsweet     While Kathy was treating Rosie like Rudolf  the red nose reindeer, Teresa  invited Rosie to join in her Reindeer Games. - Essentially not allowing the walls Rosie put up to  discourage Teresa from extending her friendship. 

 

Rosie said something like enough with the tabloids or the tabloids have to stop.  The tabloids were taking direct quotes from the show and putting bad pictures of the women with them.  Not everyone gets the fact that tabloids are out to sell magazines and print what ever they want.  - I myself was involved in a false tabloid story  - the picture was me but the story was totally fabricated.  The attacks on Teresa over what was written in Tabloids to me - do not hold any merit

rnkat
rnkat

 @debharrington  @Bonz25  @melsweet We don't know for sure if Teresa did break down any walls, just her saying that she was there for Rosie.  Rosie did not acknowledge that she was.  Teresa has a habit of spinning stories so that she looks like an angel.  And the fact that Rosie was going over to Teresa's house at the time to tell her to stop talking sh*t about the family, but then she goes and talks sh*t about Kathy, just goes to show that she doesn't listen.

rnkat

 @Bonz25  @melsweet I appreciate the banter, too!  As for the "all about family", maybe it was because Teresa was always touting that she was all about family, but Kathy didn't feel that she was.  It could go both ways.  

Bonz25
Bonz25

 @rnkat  @melsweet Either way...  Kathy during her first season  threw jabs at Teresa for not being "all about Family"- Kathy was distant to  her own sister  when Teresa was there for Rosie- making Kathy a hypocrite  with the hard line she draws with Teresa on the issue of family supporting one another. 

 

p.s.I appreciate the banter here with you - the Miami blog does not lend itself to discussion  - it is all out war against differing opinions  on their blogs.

rnkat
rnkat

 @Bonz25  @melsweet Yes, maybe Teresa was there for Rosie--but I don't think it was because she wasn't "accepted".  Like I said, before Rosie came out, Kathy did say that there was "distance" between them, and Rosie "put up walls".  Once she did come out, Kathy stated in a previous episode that she had met at least two of Rosie's girlfriends--one she liked, and one she hated.  Perhaps this is the girlfriend who was "leading Rosie down the wrong path", and Kathy did not support this, which perhaps could be misconstrued as "not being there for her". So for me, the timeline works.  It doesn't mean that Kathy wasn't there for her, as Teresa implied; it means that Kathy did not support that relationship.  

Bonz25
Bonz25

 @rnkat  @melsweet I appreciate your point.  I don't think Kathy was distant with Rosie because she was gay but i do think Teresa was there for Rosie when times were tough for her being accepted. Seems like a statement Teresa should not make  but Kathy's first season was filled with Kathy making comments that  Teresa was not into family as she claimed to be  - (tit for tat seems to be rampant in this entire family).  I also see Rosie standing by her sister and making the timeline work for Kathy's defense.

 . 

rnkat
rnkat

 @Bonz25  @melsweet I understand your point.  However, I don't feel that they were talking about the same thing.  Kathy has said that there was some distance between her and Rosie before she came out--that Rosie had put up walls.  I don't think it was a matter of "shunning" Rosie because she was gay--which is what Teresa was insinuating.   And you are right--I believe Rosie would have spoken up in an honest way, and she did so at the reunion.  Perhaps at the time she and Teresa had the conversation, she was simply dumbfounded.  I know I was.  What kind of person would try to make one sister look bad in another sister's eyes just to make herself look good?
