One person that I miss seeing on my TV, and I think you will all agree, is Greg. I assure you he will be making his appearance soon. Can’t wait, love you, Greg.
Rich and I had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people this past week when we went to Chicago. Thank you all for being so warm and welcoming. We had a wonderful trip. What a great city!
Before I end this blog, I want to share something that’s so important and near to our hearts. Last season when we shared Victoria’s story and her experience with dealing with a brain tumor, we received such a huge response. Also as a result of that episode we were contacted by The National Brain Tumor Society to be honorary chairs for the 2nd Annual Walk on Governor’s Island NYC, June 16th. We are humbled and honored to be asked. Our family has formed a team called “Victorious Angels.” We are proud to be involved with bringing awareness to the need for finding a cure. Victoria was so very lucky to have been diagnosed and have surgery for her benign tumor and recovered incredibly. Unfortunately, often times that is not the case. To find out more about this event go to www.braintumor.org and search the calendar for June 16 NYC, we would love for you to be a part of our team.

Lots of Love,
Kathy Out of all the Housewives I seem to agree with you on most of the issues. I know it's hard for Jacqueline right now. But seeing Ashlee on TV, the way she talks to her parents, her attitude..OMG..She is going to be sooo embarrassed as she gets older...It is so hard to let kids now that the past REALLY comes back to haunt you..and treating your mom like crap..on TV...that's the worst !!!
Please stop talking about your cousin! Its so disgusting that you guys are on TV and discussing family issues. you all should be embarrassed
Your husband needs to be better toward Joe and Teresa right now. B lack eye????Really? It's like Richie is itching and waiting for a fight with them. Give it up and listen to your mother she is right! It's family... They are hurting and thanks to Donald Trump maybe the can get out of some of their mess.
You are Passive/Aggresive. I don't buy you saintly image you portray on he show. You're boring and a sell out. Go away!
Kathy come on, you guys WERE talking about her. And she knew it. Lets be real.
I like you sometimes, just don't get sucked in to the Manzo web, please. You and Melissa both would be wise to stop running to them for "help". They really aren't your friends. And the more episodes I watch the more that is clear to me. Caroline is a nasty person, and as much as I hate to admit this Danielle was right about her.
Yes Teresa has done wrong, but come on. You ALL throw digs, you may not do it to her face, but you do A LOT of it in your interviews, A LOT! You Melissa and Caroline are constantly bashing her in your chairs. I don't hear her doing that too much. Makes ya start to wonder.
And what do you want her to say. I find it so funny you and Caroline BOTH say things about Teresa's guilty concience. Really, guilty about what, she didn't try to hide it, she put it in her cookbook that is out there in the public. Like I said in Carolines blog, it's not like she sent a private email that got leaked, she put it in a national book. So she said she was sorry. She said she was sorry that she offended anybody. Accept it and MOVE ON!!
Kathy, I just love you and your family. I think you all need to lighten up on Teresa a little though, because she is really going through a lot right now. Keep doing what you do, and may you be blessed richly.
Why don't you shut your husband up. All he does is cut up Teresa and her hubby. What is wrong with him? He has put himself at a level below everyone. Richie acts like he thinks he is better than all the men. All he does is put down people. Shut him up.
Kathy can't shake this feeling i have that Theresa really needs you in her life. I can't imagine not having a sister...By the way I love, love,love Rosie & absolutely adore your Mom. Speaking of sisters, your the closest Theresa has to a sister and I was glad to read u didn't take the cookbook comments so...seriously, I mean come on it's not nearly as bad as some have made it out to be. Your a smart lady Kathy, hope we see u defend your cousin, your blood, and that the two of you get close again. Love your family...Good things!!!
I use to think that you were a good person but here lately and in last season you have become a real big joke! You sit there and always bash Teresa yet you wouldn't be on this show if it wasn't for her......afterall no one knew who you were until Housewifes.
You look so dumb when you roll your eyes and act like you have done nothing wrong. All last season and already this season you and your husband talk trash about Teresa, yet you want to act all innocent. Sorry but you obviously don't know anything about family either!!! So don't call the kettle black. Unless Teresa brings your name up....you should focus on YOU and let Teresa and her family deal with thier dillemas alone. Teresa wasn't the nicest of persons last season and I was disgusted with her behavior but a lot of what was said was also made to be more than it was.
All I see in Caroline, Jacklyn, Melissa and in you are hypocrites!!! See some of us know that what we are seeing in this season was from last year and Teresa has come a long way to become a better person but obviously you are still disgusting. So good luck and hopefully someday you can become something other than a Housewife = )
Ive heard a MILLION and ONE times over the last 3 or 4 years that IF a person don't say THIS or/and THAT when they apologize then it wasn't sincere.?!!! 1st of all when or where did the words that Teresa uses EVER make sense let alone being the correct way of explaining anything? I for one don't say "I'm Sorry" unless I truly am! That along with "I Love You" are over used IMO. So now we all need to hang Tre because her words weren't the correct kind for saying she wasn't trying to hurt anyone? Geeezz.. When before her words were giggled at but now they are used to hurt her! I doubt many of my replies will be posted this season. Because I am ready for Tre to be slammed every show this season. Just as she was the ONLY topic last reunion. SAD!! But I'm not buying into it.. NOT FOR A SECOND. Will all of "yous" be happy when you kill how she can make a living? When her husband in is Prison? What will make "yous" happy? I really wasn't all about "SUPER T" until I saw how everyone started kicking her when she is down. Like yeah!! We can all be important now that we can say, "Look world at this.. You like her? Well you'll LOVE us then.." I know how it feels to have everyone spit at you when what you can do for them dries up. I watch actions.. Words mean little really.. Actions tell you what is in someones heart.
You seem so level headed! Please don't tell me you're jumping on the silly cookbook bandwagon with the Holy Manzos.
You are a great mom with good children. I like the way that you and hubby display affection for your children and how your children adore you two as parents. Your family is " A okay"
Kathy, You really are the most real housewife. I relate to you're feelings about your children growing up, even though I have two boys. You always have to be involved. Keep up the good work!
You have the sweetest family EVER! You can see that you all love and respect each other..it is beautiful to see. A healthy, happy family that seems like your next door neighbors!
How many times does discuss the cookbook need to be discussed? It started last season and is still a major topic this season. I had to turn off the show after the scene in the kitchen. Your enjoyment of Melissaput down of Teresa was so evident. Just look at your eyes.
I like you Kathy think you are true about blood being thicker than water but I think you should have your husband stop putting wood on the fire and keep his trouble making mouth shut he is worsr tham a wash woman doesn't he have other things to keep him busy instead of breaking up a family he is too much against Thersea and should knock it off he makes himself look like a real jerk a mamarelle
Please please post.
I like you. Your family is very nice, your children are adorable. Sadly, though your comment instructing the viewer not to get confused over you and your family talking about Teresa prior to her arrival is infuriating. OF course you all were talking behind her back.... you always do! Do you really believe that we the viewers are stupid.....don't you actually watch all the episodes yourself and see just how much YOU talk about her. Pay attention to what you say, you are coming off like a hypocrit.
I have to say, I like you. I think you are sincere in what you say. But I have to disagree with one thing. Teresa DID say her INTENTION was not to offend anyone. I also read her cookbook and I'm not sure why everyone is so po'd at her. But I guess I will watch what happens.
Let's remember the only reason you are on the show is because of Teresa. Bravo never would have had interest in you if it wasn't for the fact that you are her cousin. I think you have many great qualities but do not like seeing all of the Teresa bashing.
Love the show! Can you tell me where you purchased the orange necklace you had on during one of your descriptive parts on last nights show (4/29). I need something exactly like that to match a dress that I have.
How can you feel good about yourself? You came on this show to destroy a family member. How were you being hurt on the previous seasons when no one knew who you were? Why did you feel the need to come on this show, which was Teresa's first, and attack and "expose" right out of the gate? I have not heard you criticize 1 other cast member, not once. Others have made mistakes and done mean things but you are such a coward and a wannabe, you would never call out anyone else on their behavior....just your own flesh and blood. Very mean and cruel.
There is no difference. You were talking about her. She got the correct impression when she arrived. Sad for her that she has to film with all of you because I saw everyone going out of their way to make her feel unwelcome. I can't believe "grown-ups" actually behave that way. If I had been Teresa, I'd have headed right back out that door and never looked back.
Yes, the show had the highest ratings in the history of Bravo Tv, because of Teresa! Please don't think for a minute that you are that interesting my dear..... Also, I don't blame Joe for ignoring your husband's "sense of humor!" It's so ironic how your husband has a "sense of humor" in every situation, but Teresa is just "mean".. Richie has said some VERY ugly things that are by NO MEANS funny... Lastly, if what Teresa said in her cookbook about you and your husband wasn't that much of a big deal, why are you involved? The only reason you are saying "it wasn't that much of a big deal" is because the fans said it last week! Otherwise, you would want her to apologize for it! Even so, you are STILL finding something to be mad with her about!
You and Melissa piggybacked off of Teresa back and look a song and drink now wow - and you say you didn't. Another thing is that your husband can apologize in his form but no one can accept Teresa apology in her form. I can't wait for Teresa's spin off so I can stop watching your hypocritical behavior. The fact that the air got cleared up on who did the tattling with Melissa. You people are pathetic.
Kathy, you and Rich crack me up! I love that Rich is a man's man and took the sext with a grain of salt like I'm sure my husband would. No doubt my husband would have high fived my son as soon as I turned my back! Can't wait to see how this season unfolds!
Watching you and your rude husband makes me want to turn off my television. Your cousin was going through hell and where were you...oh, that's right, somewhere making fun or her or talking behind her back. You are a miserable cousin and your husband needs a major lesson in manners. Instead of sticking by your blood, you latched on to the one person you knew wanted to hurt her. With family like you, who needs enemies. I don't understand this show anymore. Should be, "Mean families of New Jersey" of "Housewives, Cousins, Sisters and kids of New Jersey"....it's just not fun to watch anymore.
I love watching you and your family. You have the coolest husband. You guys are fun and you are such a kind spirit. You bring a fresh, loving, attitude to the show.
Kathy, I really enjoy watching you and your family. You are a great person, mother, cousin, wife, and friend! I love your positive energy and positive outlook on life!
I like you, I really do but you need to lay off Teresa! She's obviously going though such a hard time and you need to stand up and be a good cousin to her! If you weren't offended by the things she wrote in her book then why are you riding that bandwagon? She has apologized many times now so grow up and move on! Furthermore, you guys were talking about her when she walked in, it doesn't matter what you were actually saying. I'm sure she could sense the tension in the room when she walked in and at least she addressed it and apologized, yet again! And why is it OK for Caroline and her family to talk poorly about Teresa season after season AND for Melissa to talk about Teresa and make obnoxious comments like "taking one for the team so you can make a little cash"? But when Teresa writes something that is quite frankly just silly in her book you all are up in arms? Move on already!! On a side note, I love watching you with your husband and kids, you are obviously a tight knit, loving family!
Seriously Kathy, Teresa can't win for losing. Regardless of everything that has happened, you are all nitpicking on whether she is being sincere or not. How do you know she isn't sincere, because her delivery wasn't up to your standard? Teresa is not the best at wording things, I get that, but she is also walking into the Lion's den each and every time she apologizes. Did you ever stop to think that she is nervous? It looks that way to me. If you are going to analyze, how about Melissa's condescending snot ass remark about taking one for the team to make a buck. That was purely disgusting and evil. Can't you all just stop now? You especially as family. The ganging up is revolting. God forbid something happen to T and you never get the chance to truly work it out. Just stop holding the grudge and embrace her, faults and all. I don't think her intentions were bad, but yet, If the shoe fits.....Everyone sits and talks about Teresa, but you have to say that she was "inferring", no, you were all talking about her and rehashing the stupid book. That's all anyone ever does. Now, she apologizes in a magazine, and you all have something to say about that.....like I said, she can't win for losing. Not once did any of you apologize to her for the constant backstabbing and name calling. Now how was it right for Albie to say that "Milania was a terrorist". I bet that was an acceptable joke right. That was a horrendous thing to say about a 5 year old, regardless of their behavior. Seriously, let's see how you all, especially Caronline spin that! I really want to like you because there are qualities there that I like in you, but you make it so hard because you are just so critical of T. Did you ever look into Melissa's background and they way her sisters try to defame T? You may want to check that out. Would love to see you unite with your cousing. Remember, blood is thicker than water.
Your and husband and joe are funny. I believe you all were close because the men talked trashed and minimized the wrestling between Richie and Joe. You all need to make up and have a big Italian feast with Rosie leading the entertainment follwed by Tre's mom and your mom telling you all to come on.
Actually, I don't agree with you. I don't want to see Greg. I never liked him in previous episodes. Your blog is blah, blah, blah and of course some bashing of Teresa and Joe. More of Rosie, less of you.
Kathy, I love your family and how you all interact together. I have a son and daughter, 12 and 10 respectively. Your family reminds me so much of mine. I have their computer beside mine so I can see every thing they are up to on it. With the world as it is now you have to monitor the kids or they do grow up too fast. Richie is a hoot and I just love when he is on, love that he took down the kung-fu panda who managed to basically get beat up by a candle stick lol. Please stay the classy lady that you are, you are my favorite to watch because I relate to you so well. I have been called over-protective but if I don't protect my kids who will?
Kathy, You are amazing! I am so happy that you joined the show because I love watching you and your wonderful family - so heart-warming and funny (I eat sarcasm for breakfast, so love the things y'all say). Hugs and best wishes to you and your beautiful family :D
I was really laughing when you pulled the computer away from Rich as he was looking at the pics sent to your son. That was a hoot! I really enjoy seeing your family on the show. Keep up the positive attitude.
Kathy, After being given this opportunity to be on this show ONLY because your cousin Teresa laid the path, it always amazes me that you continue to have NOTHING EVER good to say about Teresa. I’ve read all your blogs last season, and both blogs this season, and so far, nothing. Everything about Teresa and Joe Guidice is negative, and I was glad your own Mother called all of you "out" when you were all sitting at the table, shameful. So many viewers have said it, with family like you, who needs enemies? In your own words “ when you peel an onion, sometimes it's really sweet and sometimes you shed a few tears.” Hopefully you’ll begin to peel away the layers of coldness in your heart, and warm up to your own flesh and blood (Teresa) who you’ve treated so poorly.
"It never ceases to amaze me how some people’s true nature comes out in unguarded moments. I am referring to Joe Giudice’s comments about making a living playing poker, thinking it’s an easy way to make a buck. Let’s just hope that’s not his next business venture. It’s just so contrary to how Rich and I grew up and the things our parents showed us about how to succeed."
You guys take EVERYTHING the Giudice's say and blow it WAY OUT of proportion to make yourselves look good! By no means did Joe EVER say that HE was going to try and play poker to make a living! Then you have the audacity to throw another dig about you and Richie's parents teaching the both of you better. Really? So, let me read between the lines.. Are you saying that you and your husband have better parents? You are SO passive-aggressive!
All of you seem to THRIVE on attacking the Giudices at their lowest point! Nothing but bullying at it's finest! Also, if I were Teresa and I had walked into Jacqueline's home and have everyone so nasty towards me, EVEN AFTER AN APOLOGY, I would have simply left! NONE OF YOU ARE WORTH IT AT THIS POINT! If anything, SHE'S OWED AN APOLOGY! If Teresa weren't there, who in the world would you talk about? Turn on someone else in the group? Let me make one thing clear, IF THERE'S NO TERESA, THERE'S NO SHOW! SHE IS THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY and it's killing all of you inside!
"Did you hear? Bravo earned the highest ratings in history with our season premiere." Yes, the ratings were high, THANKS TO TERESA GIUDICE!
The ONLY reason the show is #1 is bc of TERESA......surely not your boring family.....excluding Rosie and ur Mom - we like them!
Who needs to watch this trainwreck, this show is sad just reading... I know there is your side, their side, and the truth... why do you allow Bravo to take down your family is beyond me.. It's not fun anymore.. and the real truth, is friendships are broken, lives are unrepairable.. For what, fame, money, I don't understand.. Was it worth it.. I think not Shannon
You were talking about Teresa, you guys always do, so lts keep it real.. Also it's ok, when your husband refers to Teresa as a B all the time, says she was dropped on her head too many times so on and so forth, and last week you said that people say things they really don't mean..But then this week you are all bent out of shape because Teresa referred to your husband as a stupid geek... Oh Ok Kathy..You all can say what whever you want, and not mean it..But Teresa and I'm assuming Joe Guidice can't.
I'm reading between the lines and see who is planting the seeds.
Shame on all of you!!!
