Kathy Wakile

Kathy thinks the exercises in Arizona really helped everyone come together.

on Sep 9, 20130

Hello friends!

Yes, summer is almost officially over. Although some get bummed by it, not me -- Fall is one of my favorite times of year. All the seasonal flavors and colors that come into play, getting back into a routine; no more lazy summer daze...have to say, I am ready!

Thanks always for your support and thanks for watching our show as it moves into this season's final episodes!

Now onto this week’s show.

As the Miraval Trip in the Arizona desert continued, it was great to see guards drop, connections and conversations happen, and new beginnings as a united front were declared!

The bottom line in my opinion was many of the healing exercises did open our minds and our souls. Seeing each and every one of us face fears of a horse or balancing on a high wire, the lessons were clear -- they made each one of us look within and think.

Kathy, Your one of my favorites! I love your spunk. You’re so neutering and a loyal friend, sister and person. Rosie is correct-I also feel that you deserve more respect from everyone. You do hold back at times with what you thinking and that is good, because; its not always good to speak out without thinking.  I was freaking happy you got up, and spoke out for the AZ trip. You go girl! I think you husband is cool, loves you a lot, and is trying hard to help you. He does kind of turn into a daddy figure. I think it’s because he loves you so much! He's funny. I enjoy seeing the both of you. You’re a good looking woman and you don't seem to know that.

Kathy I just dont see you in the next season. Your marriage brings back so many memories of when i was married and it makes me sad. You are always depressed and live in a victim state of mind. Its obvious your husband loves you but the constant over shadowing looks like he is making sure you stay in a bubble instead of protection. He is so funny and adorable but I bet he has a lot of secrets. And I have a question....Teresa is your cousin that you have a long history of conflict. You say AZ was a good thing. She has kids to raise, this show, her product lines and book and problems.... Her plate is so over filled. Why havent you stepped up? No matter what happened in the past I would of forced her to lunch or just knocked on her door and said Im here for you whether you like it or not. Then I would of taken her kids to the park so she could have some relax time. Get out of your house alone once in a while geesh

PLEASE STOP! You have been making excuses for so long. You looked so uncomfortable on WWHL tonite, making excuses for your husband. Girl...leave him at home already. He is not a RHWNJ!!! He's riding your horse. Why is he always panting after your crumbs. Is your legacy gonna be sucking up to Theresa and cleaning up after Rich? If so, your doing great!   You're a great Mom. Your daughter will cow tow to her husband & in laws. Your son will treat his wife like  Rich treats you. Wake Up! No other HW husband rides the wave?? What up?

please leave the show Kathy. your damage causing greedy motive to destroy your own cousin and her family is disgusting. you should be ashamed of yourself and your ugly rude husband. go away and just start a bakery business down the street.  tre did nothing to you but give you a chance to be on national tv and you came on the show and bashed her like a pumpkin the day after Halloween. cant believe she forgave you.  stop playing the victim and put your big girl panties on and suck it up. you looked so stupid in Arizona yelling at tre of what she is suppose to do. take a chill pill and stay out of her business. pathetic. tre should have kicked you to the curb with Melissa a LONG time ago. you got your piece of the pie so now please go away for the love of cannolis. barf.

Hi Kathy, I haven't read your blog, yet. I just couldn't wait to tell you, you are so great! Me & my family, the women, we all love you and your family! Your family is so much fun to watch! I know it hurts when a cousin or any family member says awful things and can not be supportive. We all can see its because those people are so insecure, they can't be happy for others. Just watch that persons face when anything about anybody doing well in their life, and that insecure person is not involved. Just sit back and watch. I'm 50 now, I've learned so much about other people, as I've gotten older. Live and learn phrase is so true. You keep holding your head up! You are a good person! Try not to worry about sick people, they will make you sick. Tell the family we said Hi and tell Rosie we love watching her also! Love watching you two sisters! When ever you get to come to Dallas area to show your food or whatever, I will come meet you! Take care

Kathy I admired you when you said the family should stick together against those outsiders...but why then would you call and engage those outsiders planning Teresa's demise the night before Moxie?

Kathy,

I just have one pet peeve. Maybe it is different where you lived and the morals you were taught, but over her, when someone in your family (Rosie) compliments you because she genuinely loves you and wants to share your love, you don't turn it back on her. Why couldn't you just accept her love, without thinking there was something behind it.\

Kathy how did you feel when Daniele and Andy were talking about the emails from Melissa with all of Teresa's financial business and begging her to film with her? Was that news to you? Were you horrified to hear of such disloyalty to a family member? Or did you think it was justified because after all you and Melissa needed some pie? She may have wrote all the crap, but I haven' heard a peep out of you about them so that makes you just as guilty.

PS. Please tell Rosie there are worse things than being alone, she could be with pond scum like Rich.

You, Richie and Rosie need a spin off!!! You are real!!! But tell Richie to stop being so nasty on TV it doesn't appear natural. Your spin off could be more about your family businesses. Rosie and dating!!!!!!

I would love to see you have your own cooking & decorating show.

I pray that you, vile Richie, Fame ho Melissa and Maniac Joe Gorga would just go away please!!!!!!...You are trying this season to be relevant but it will never happen, this is not your thing meaning entertainment. Opening a bakery, ok I'll go with that....Your constant coming down on Teresa and Joe Giudice just disgusts me as well and it reflects so badly on you...what would any of you wannabees do if Teresa left the show?!!!..Then Bravo would have to fire you guys...I'm sorry Kath, you're like watching paint dry.

Hey Kath, please tell Rosie, since there is no blog for her and I think there should be, that I care about her, and think she is absolutely awesome.  Don't listen to nay sayers, and keep on being your own person.  Marie

Why do you brush off Joe Gorga's awful behaviour with 'oh he's passionate'? Seriously, I don't care where you're from no one should behave like that! He needs to get some help for that revolting temper of his. Teresa shook a table ONCE and people still go on about it. That man-child has 'tried' to physically assault Teresa's Joe and now this glass throwing incident. Not cool. What a bogan he is.

"Back off haters"? Wow Kathy--not liking your blog responses are you? listen--maybe Teresa has forgiven you because she has to film with you and you're family---doesn't mean that even if you guys start braiding each other's hair that we've forgotten, or at least I've forgotten how you entered the show, what you did to your cousin, and all because you coveted her life on a reality show. It';s been ugly, vicious, manipulative and really deep. The ill will you started with Melissa and husbands upon entering just because you wanted the famous life Teresa had won't ever leave my mind. It was too dark Kathy. Do you remember the witch hunt reunions where you enjoyed  your cousin's emotional torture? You jumped in whenever anyone even LOOKED at you. Or the clubhouse visits where you couldn't speak FAST enough to ruin Teresa? Come on--Teresa hasn't forgotten either. It will never be the same--and I'm glad you don't have your bakery empire like you planned. it was at the expense of family--and the enjoyment was too strong.. And you know darn well if the storyline was still Teresa is the devil with Caroline, Jaq etc, you'd STILL be in there swinging....go away please..damage done--lie in it.

Kathy I hate to say it but we don't know that Joe Gorga has a huge heart. I kinda hope you and Rosie get a spin off. That's true love and friendship!

First, I think that you are great Kathy! I think that you are over-looked but that is something that you need to be vocal about, and not your sister or others. This last episode FINALLY stopped the nonsense of all the bows and goody goody we get along. I actually believe that Teresa didn't have anything to do with it, and that it was Melissa's friend BUT she should still not be entertaining the rumors if not for Melissa for her own BROTHER.

I thought you did good keeping at them, but I kinda had a hard time listening to Joe rant again even when the Giudice Joe sounded like a man of reason. I had problem with mama Caroline too, sounding off like the enforcer. I mean who is she when all is said and done. You and your sister gotta stand by family, but you don't have to listen to Mel and her husband acting up.  They're fanning the flames to keep some tension in the show. I mean now even Jacqueline is playin nice.She's one who can go back to sleep.

At the end of the season, I had hoped you would surprise viewers. You want everyone to believe you are old school Italian, a peacemaker, an old wise soul and the voice of reason. But everything you do and say and write in your blog has the opposite effect on many (not all) viewers.

You have spent three seasons pushing the buttons that hurt Teresa the most, using your sister to say the horrible things to Teresa that you are not brave enough to say yourself, taking a side in a brother/sister problem when you shouldn't have and being more worried about outsiders liking you than supporting your own family. Why can't you say anything nice about Teresa? Why do you defend her brother's rage fueled attacks and say he acts like that because he has a big heart? Why can't you say thank you to Teresa and her husband for always including Rosie, not as a third wheel, but as a loved part of the family? Why don't you ever call Melissa on her horrible behavior towards Teresa or her manipulation of Joey? What are your thoughts on Caroline poking the sleeping bear of your family's dysfunction and avoiding working on her own family issues? When are you going to practice that united family front and tell the Laurtias and Manzos to back off your cousin? 

We have pretended to watched your boring storyline for three seasons, take what you learned from this experience and make yourself a better person . Please don't get the wrong idea - many viewers don't hate you, they just find you hypocritical and annoyingly boring.

PS - A small business hint: calling those who don't pretend to see you the way you want them to "haters" isn't going to gain you fans or sell your cannoli kits.

"but when it comes down to it, we have each other’s' backs and that is what people need to understand."

 

HUH? You never have your cousin's back, Teresa. But nice try. A whole group of friends and extended family shouldn't be confronting "rumors" about Melissa's indiscretions. That's Melissa's job. She's a big girl. She made her bed, now she can lie in it, literally 'lie, lie, lie' in it. Why would anyone condone Melissa cheating on her husband?He's a gross loser but still, so is she......and she married him, let her deal with her own life.

Anyone watching this show from day one knows the resentment you, Teresa's SIL, and brother came on to the show with.  Danielle confirmed it all on WWHL last night.  She said the emails Melissa sent to her, to forward to Bravo were so bad that she didn't want to be part of it (and I'm sure you knew of every word Melissa wrote).  We the viewers comment on your behavior (good and bad).  The three of you took this jealousy and resentment on national tv for a piece of the pie and tried to destroy a family.  The sad thing is, there were family elders brought into it.    Now....who are the haters?   Look in the mirror woman.

I don't "get" the "having my back" obsession with all the Housewives--not just Jersey.  Is this an Italian thing? I'm Norwegian.  There are some whacks in my family, and I just let them suffer the consequences of their actions. If someone in my family is bad mouthing one of my friends, then I will stick up for whoever I think is in the right. It doesn't have anything to do with having anyone's back. Right is right & wrong is wrong.

Why would a cousin get involved in the problem of their cousins? And then take sides no less? Why won't you acknowledge that Teresa has tried more than once to go "united front" with Melissa and confront those who say things that she doesn't want to acknowledge? Why does Teresa have to clean up the mess that is rightfully her brother and his wife to clean up? You support whomever you think will aid you in your agenda. Next week we are lead to believe that no one showed up to support you and your cannoli kits? Kathy you took a side and you chose poorly. Deal with it!

Kathy, please stop using the term "haters". Seriously, how old are you? If someone disagrees with you, the viewers have a right to say it and not to be referred to as haters. The few times I post to you is to say I just don't get you...you are always siding with Melissa, who has said vicious things about YOUR cousin Teresa, and you never call her out, so I'm calling B.S. on your united front campaign. You should be more like Rosie, now she's real. You're just kiss the Manzo's butts.

@aespino No way. Richie is too vile. Rosie, yes, but no Kathy & Richie.

@Robson I would say your post is about the best, most clear eyed understanding of the relationship between these 3 people. What is really uncomfortable to watch is the "lil buddy, sidekick" role Rosie has been placed in. And she is apparently all too willing to play her pathetic role constantly bleating out her anger and loneliness. And I really get the feeling that is exactly where Kathy wants to keep her. Sad.

 Lol  What does Kathy have against the letter T. She sounds like a moronic baboon. Kathy, practice saying the T sound, it is one of the three sounds needed to say the word BUT.

 @MissMaryMac Frankly, I've heard enough from Rosie. She was interesting when she first appeared but, as always, the producers are pumping her up into something she's not. I'm tired of the "all things gay are good" mentality at Bravo. Being gay does not make you interesting, being interesting makes you interesting. Making her Kathy's minion is degrading,

@rebecca_959804 Exactly. I don't consider someone who has temper tantrums and fist fights passionate. Joe Gorga is a vicious, angry man.

@WCW .. Excellent. I couldn't agree more. Plus, she should worry about straightening out her husband's disgusting antics before she gives her opinions about anyone else.

 I'm wondering what Danielle's show will be like. It might turn out to be quite a hit. I plan to check it out .

Her daughters are really beautiful .

I for one wish her success with the show .
