So here we are at the end. Believe me viewers, there is no pun intended. As I watched the scenes of the final episode I realized that while I was sitting at the table enjoying my salad, there seemed to be a whole other show going on. Apparently a lot of things were happening. I often wonder to myself, why is it that I do not pick up on these things as they are happening? Or is it that I just choose to block out ugly situations and try to believe that there is a logical explanation for everything? Unfortunately watching this it is obvious that the events of that evening were definitely orchestrated, and not a coincidence.
Human nature has proven that you can take any group of people and allow them to view the same scenario and each person will take away something different based on their emotions, personal identification with the players, or just plain willingness to side with one party or another.
So as I sit to write this blog, I think it would be best to remove my emotions from the mix and just present you all with the facts we’ve all seen involving the events of that evening. It occurred to me that the old saying that truth is stranger than fiction was in play here for sure. You can’t make this stuff up folks.
I'm a little curious, just what part of Joe talking with his 'pizza man' does everyone believe?
What's happened to you? You are Mellissa are cut from the same cloth - willng to destroy family for a ferw minutes of fame and a nose job. Get off the show and save what little soul you have left.
Tell Rosie to shut it! You think you can talk super disrespectful and nobody will say something back because Rosie will huff and puff?... Please! You're rude! All season long you've been like a snake. I wonder if joe gorga like what you said about his patents... Lets see if he cares that much about his mother and father , the way he cared about an old co worker saying hi to his wife...huh?
Kathy, you put your foot in your mouth with those hateful comments about Joey and Teresa's elderly parents....maybe there's a new market for toe jam!
I always saw you so calm during the episodes, I was very surprised by your actions. But we don't know what has happened behind the scenes. It wasn't really nice how you referred to Teresa's parents. They are older and never asked to be part of this show or the drama that the family has caused. I hope one day you can all resolve all your differences. At the end family is everything. I am not sure if your loving Dad is here, but that is probably why you and Rosie were so offended. I feel really bad for the parents, I can see that Teresa can really push someone to the edge of their seat, probably wanting to just punch her but we are adults and have to deal with things a lot better. We haven't heard from you, hope all is better.
Kathy, Despite how awful teresa is, you went down a road on national tv that should have remained off camera!
@Whigz Lets not forget that Tre's mom is Kathy's aunt as well. I'm sure she's seen more of the elder generations family dynamic over the course of her 40+ years than we'll EVER be able to understand. Did the elder Gorga's ASK to be party to a national TV show: NO. But it was Teresa that initially joined the cast- she put them in that position to have their family involved and the consequences may not lay directly at her feet, but she certainly opened the door. In the Real world, a person can only forgive, forget, turn the other cheek and move on so many times. Like Kathy (and Jacqueline) I have a heart that WANTS to forgive, to help to make amends etc; eventually you get to a place where you just cannot take anymore, you cannot bit your tongue for so long that you sever it and the resut is you lash out. Often with the most hurtful things that come to mind. Is that acceptable? NO. Of course not, but when you've been kicked and kicked sooner or later you blow a gasket, flip your lid and say things you regret because in the heat of the moment you can't control yourself. There isn't a single person on these comments who hasn't at one time or another said "enough is enough" and completely lost it.
I love the Wakiles and sister Rosie! Kathy is nothing but class and Rich is a hoot! I believe that Kim D was in cahoots with the creepy bald guy and brought Teresa into it. Why else would Teresa go to a place where she says she's never been to get whatever she got done? Teresa never really liked Melissa in the first place, so why not be a part of it without admitting that she was a part o fit?
I am so proud of you, I'm sure what we saw this season is the tip of the iceberg, I believe there is alot more going on behind the scenes for you to get as angry as you did on Sunday. I love how you defended yourself and your family. I believe T must have learned how to behave the way she has this season from someone (mom and dad), so I''m not surprised by the things you said. I LOVE ROSIE!! She should come back next season and replace Theresa as the first gay housewife. Please BRAVO if you are listening bring back Rosie and the rest of the housewives (with the exception of Theresa).
The Bald Guy is not part of the show. We have seen Kim D before so it is understandable for her to have a mic on, but why him? Wouldn't this be a warning to Teresa?
Kathy, You looked great at the Reunion.........you could have passed for Wendy Williams sister.
Kathy,1st I gotta say,wow,you look amazing,wow!!I made a vow to myself to stay away from any and all negativity a few months ago,so I havent been watching the show.The reasons are clear.I couldnt resist however watching all of the clips online.I wish I could say I had better things to do than watch this trainwreck of a show but sadly I dont when my kids are at school.Clearly, Tre has a legion of fans because she's exciting to watch,you never know what she's going to do next.Her fans are fierce,loyal and brutal as seen here in the comments on your blog.What sets you apart & makes you very special (and I hope Bravo recognizes this) is that you are a genuinly nice woman.I for one, would love to see you in your own show doing great things for others,as thats your true character.I wish you the very very best,keep the faith and stay as beautiful as you arexoxo
Do you really want your children to see how you and Rosie behaved? Teresa is a nut case, no doubt about it, but you've known that for a long time, this is not your battle! What Rosie did
was very unnerving, is being on this show worth it?
Itokagi23 I think I would have gone nuts too if she brought up my father who has passed on in a negative light.
I really enjoy watching a woman taught to have self-respect on this show. But above all " Rosie" is my favorite!!! hands down!! You got to love a woman who speaks her mind, and has her families back no matter what! That's what family is all about. Teresa should learn something, but we all know that is impossible... She has the brain of a chimp at best.
Wow Kathy, I know it's must be awfully hard trying to live up to being Saint Kathy and all, but you truly let Teresa push your buttons. You and Rosie totally lost it at the reunion. You and Teresa should protect your parents with more dignity and class. All I can say is, so so sad.
Wow! I am not a Teresa fan but why are you allowed to call her mother a liar and her father a coward? Your aunt and uncle! You and Rosie need to get a grip. Talk about over-reacting! Rosie's ranting and yelling was truly disturbing.
For me it wasn't even what she said, it was the way she said it. Hello Kathy, nice to see you for who you are. She couldn't hide behind that fake Kathy you have tried to maintain. Teresa is not the only nut case in that family. This is what Teresa has been dealing with.
Too ashamed by your and Rosie's behavior to blog this week? You need to beg your Aunt & Uncle for forgiveness.
That was so sad to see what you said about your family. I don't understand your sisters reaction yes that is her dad too but that is also T parents you were talking about, what a low blow. Maybe T brother Joe should of told you the same thing Rosie told T. What makes your parents better then T parent think about it, you people are sad all u do just for money.
Kathy I think you are great,along with your kids and Rosie and your mother is a sweetie,Rich is a awesome husband and provider for the family,some of his jokes just go to far(the fish one,the tampon) even tho we laugh,there are young kids watching the show(even tho they shouldn't be) so maybe he could be a little more aware of young viewers. Hang in there and look forward to getting thru the next 2 reunion shows and seeing you next season. Best wishes on your dessert line,I will be watching for it,hope to find it and try them. Thanks for the entertainment this season. Hopefully tre has learned how to treat people,family better,and admit her husbands a cheat. Maybe there is hope she will grow up. She isn't fooling anyone about her books its her moms and your moms,plus all other family's recipes.
Kathy, you have sincerely tried to re-start the family relation again. Sad to say Teresa might not be worth the effort.
My sincere appreciation towards you and your family.... AND you too have a lovely husband and children/teens.
I feel because your are family, you are not going to turn completely away from Teresa.
That's ok, just keep true to yourself and when needed let her know you will not feed into her malicious works.
Kathy. Why are you communicating with Teresa in any way. Even texting. I am totally surprised that you would do this. This entire season she has put you down time and time again. You know that the only reason she is communicating with you is because you are her last resort. She didn't even have the deciency to add you to the toast she made. She just knows for sure that she has burned her bridges with everyone on the show. She only turning to you now because no one else is left. Not because she cares for you or loves you. She will use you then turn on you and your family like she has everyone else. How can you so easily forgive her for all the ugly things she said about you and Rich. The way she talked about Rich at the reunion was unforgiveable. Thats your husband. It had to hurt his feelings to have things like that said about him on national tv. She hasn't cared that you are part of her family since the show started. Why would you care that she is family now. Stay away from her before she starts destroying your family. And she will.
Kathy is awesome! Rich is a hot for her always and vise versa. She is gorgeous! She is self motivated and very involved in her family. send some of your desserts to Alabama!! I strive to have a marriage like her. Her kids are incredible! Teresa says she's boring? I wish I was like Kathy... Not Teresa!! So call me boring! I think Rosie is awesome as well.
Keep the parents and kids out of it. Shame on you and Rosie. Beat someone up. LOL. You really want to keep your spot on this show don't you.
Why is it OK for you to disgrace Teresa's Mother "AND" Father? Teresa's did not say anything bad about your father, but I am sure you made your father turn in his grave for what you said about is sister and her husband. You and your sister should be ashamed of yourself. The only reason you came on this show was to sell desserts. I will not buy any of your desserts. I will not buy any magazines you appear on. You are a disgrace!
kathy, you brought up and insulted Teresa's parents and you freaked out when she mentioned your father? what a hypocrite you are. You are rude, disrespectful and just plain mean. We all see through your fake facade. It is also so obvious that your husband is so attracted to Teresa. This is why he pays her so much attention and this is why he makes her so uncomfortable. Could this be why you are so jealous of her and why you and melissa want to see her fail? Shame on you!
Dang!! I think people have it all wrong. Caroline isn't a bully. Rosie is. Her reaction to what Teresa said was very extreme and quite disturbing. Killing her and ripping her tongue out. My goodness. You had just said some pretty harsh things about Teresa's parents,your aunt and uncle, Teresa's reply should have been no surprise to you or anyone else. I don't think the reason Teresa didn't want other family members on the show was because of how this ended up (all the fighting and no one talking) I think it was because Teresa wanted to be able to talk bad about family without anyone knowing any different. Teresa is a twisted person.
Love you Cathy! You and Melissa are great additions to the show!! I love the story lines, other than CRAZY, I guess Bravo feels they have to have Ramona in NY and Teresa in NJ. Personally, I would love the show to be about normal drama and daily lives, not sad crazy. Keep your chin up! You're great!
I was surprised about what you said about Teresa's parents! Of course we have no background but.......I never thought you would say that. The problem with being on TV or putting something in writing is you can't take it back! Even if you feel that....don't say it out loud with cameras anyway! Love your new look. If it makes you happy that's all that counts. I thought you looked beautiful before. I think you should write a dessert cookbook and even an italian cookbook with all YOUR family recipes.
@Araseli @jersey66125 Of course we must remember that some day Teresa will be the elderly... Will it make her a better person because she is old? I know nothing of the parents and I would not want to disrespect them myself... I think they should have never been brought up but often regretful things are spoken in the heat of anger... Then we say we are sorry and move on...
Annie003 jersey66125 Her true colors were finally shown. Or she just knows she wont be back for season 5.
kathy you have the most class on the show...and i love rosie. don't let your family (teresa) ever get you down.
how do you love someone that threatens people? teresa was defending her parentsjust like kathy only teresa did it with class by not threatening anyone!
Class? She has class to call her elderly name? In my book she has no class. She is nothing.
You disgust me kathy! and so does your sister both your true colors came out at the reunion! Melissa is always the victum bla bla bla all of you need to stop acting so damn holy
So ashamed of you and that sister of yours Rosie, you have been an instigator during most of the two seasons, but this takes the cake, the hatred you showed was plain for all to see and the mouth on your sister good grief, glad you two aren't in my family. Hope you apologize to your family although if I was them I don't think I'd be accepting it.
Maybe Teresa's parents ARE jerks. They are known to hold ridiculous grudges, their first born (Teresa) is a self centered jerk and a liar. They have turned a cold shoulder to their son, Joe Gorga.
I think Kathy is fed up and she knows that some of her family members are being jerks.
Say it Kathy!
I like you Kathy, I do. But I'm wondering what Bindi thinks of all this??? I realize we all lose composure but I hope you don't allow this to ruin everything you''ve been working so hard for. I wish you the best.
