I wasn’t born with the skinny gene. I have always had to watch what I eat, exercise at least 5 to 6 times a week, and stick to a routine just to maintain. Unfortunately, like so many other women, as soon as I don’t, I put on weight -- not too much, but just enough to make me want to do something about it. You really have to be conscious of it and make an effort.
It’s easy to put yourself on the back burner. In particular, it has happened to me during times of my life when I was under a lot of stress. For example, when my father became very ill and when Victoria had her brain surgery, the stress was high and like so many other mothers out there, I put myself and my needs last because others’ needs took priority. It's a delicate balance especially for me. I’m a Libra, so as soon as things get slightly off balance, I start to tip the scales. No pun intended.
Maybe Rosie needs a blog. An outlet for her anger. No kidding Kathy, your sister has got to cool it before she has a heart attack. I'm not sure how old she is, but a few anger management classes would benefit her and make it much easier to have a happier life with relationships, family, everything. I like Rosie. When she's calm and funny. When she goes batsh--crazy, it's too hard to watch.
Kathy, I know u love ur sister but daaaaaam! She's getting louder and louder and using so much bad language. What's her problem? I use to enjoy watching her, but now the booze, loudest and her mouth. Forget it I can do without her, looks like she's on a runaway train. U need to talk to her have her go back and watch pass videos. She was great back then, she's to to much now. Rosie have some class like before, poor Kathy she has a lot to deal with Rich. I'm not trying to be mean I just want the old Rosie back, not the LOUD MOUTH!!. She's gotten to WORST than Teresa!!
You don't seriously believe that Teresa made all of you woman talk about her at Victoria & Richard's BD party. Rather outlandish, IMO.
Rosie is out of control; she appears to be violent and loud.
Kathy you are such a sweet soul ,some people take this as being weak ( your cousin ) but no it means you are strong. You can hold it together , get you point across without screaming ,and you don't have to put people down . We all have a sibling or relative who hasn't quite grown up or can't express them selves it doesn't make them bad .
Your sister and husband needs to calm down. With the nasty comments about Teresa why would she want you back into the family. Be respectful.
I understand your being upset with Joey and Rosie, but your sister is one hell of a woman. I wish my aunt were as fun as she is with your kids!
I think you carry yourself with such grace, and I love that you don't feel the pressure to be a size 2! I am a tall, thin girl...but I love my food! And I WILL have that cupcake! I believe in balance too. If I have a day where all I do is pig out, and indulge in amazing food, the next day, I try and eat healthier and work out a bit more. Everyone is different. I too, HATE dance-based workout classes. I like heated Bikram yoga...you sweat like a maniac! It is so much more peaceful and less aggressive with the same results!
Like I said in Melissa and Jacqueline's blogs, I think what Linda did and said was very immature. How she made that phone call right after she saw you was extremely immature...and it just goes to show you how much time people have on their hands and how small their worlds are.
My neighbor went to Caldwell college, and had an absolutely amazing experience! I hope Victoria does, too.
Can't wait for next episode...and keep being you Kathy Wakile!! You are great.
What in the world is wrong with Rosie? She's crude and rude, loud and angry, and seems more than a bit off balance.
You are such a lovely woman. I can understand your feelings about Rich and you always being the bad guy with the kids. That's such a sucky feeling. I really hope that you guys can be on a more level line. You and Richie are adorable together. And Joseph is looking like a hot young Richie. :) You are a classy lady
Please tell your sister to cool it a bit. She's coming off worse than Tre & that's hard to do ! You are a great gal. Stay true to you. Stop trying to get Tre to "like" you. When she's all alone in a few years and has no one she'll realize the error of her ways. Then it's up to you to forgive. Love your words of wisdom!
I agree with you except its Teresa that will need to accept the apology from Kathy.
Kathy you seem particularly preoccupied with your appearance and that concerns me.
Hey Rich, maybe you can help Kathy appreciate herself 'as is'.
Hey Kathy! You do realize that Bonnie and Clyde were violent criminals right? Watching Aunt Rosie egg an inexperienced driver is a powerful, expensive car (that they both knew they shouldn't have taken without permission) in slick road conditions was not funny! Both RIchie and yourself should have lowered the hammer on both Aunt Rosie and your son for their behavior - I know my parents would have!
Kathy, can you please refrain from using the term "skinny bitch"? I mean, seriously, it's just as offensive and mean. I'm naturally skinny because of a thyroid condition, and I'm offended by you saying that, so stop it. It's not funny, and it's not cool, and it's offensive. Speaking of offensive, Rosie and her outbursts screaming like a lunatic are really becoming scary and downright mean and violent.
I'm sure someone calling you a skinny bitch does not offend you! It just offends you presently because you are team teresa and its all you have to diss Kathy! If you recall, Linda insulted Kathy at the dessert show last year, so Linda deserved it. Not that it is right! I'm sure Linda is not offended by being called it! Iin fact she probably loved it since she is so insecure that she spends most of the day at the gym! You can call me a skinny bitch all you want all day long! BTW, I love Rosie! She tells it like it is honestly without the 'BS'. Teresa is the offensive one who screams and acts like a lunatic and is not truthful!
@Robinlynn JRMN said the term offended her! You have no way of knowing what offends this viewer or Linda for that matter. BTW Rosie's behavior is just as offensive as Teresa's behavior. I am not team Teresa or team anyone.
Kathy, you are a very decent person, and refreshing to watch. And don't fret so much about your weight, you are a beautiful woman with the most gorgeous eyes ever! You are truly feminine and I love that about you, so I thought it funny when the stringy Linda commented about your body. She needs a giant dose of femininity, i find her difficult to look at.
If you want a reconciliation with Teresa and the senior Gorgas, you better tell your sister and husband to shut up. Oh, and apologize to your uncle and aunt. What does your mother think of your behavior?
Kathy's mother and Teresa's father do not speak! Kathy's mother is over it and doesn't live her life based on her brother. Its obvious there is more to it than we are seeing. I guess Teresa gets it honest! Kathy and her family and Joe and Melissa should just live their life happy and get the 'it is what it is' attitude. Why do they need to apologize to senior Gorgas and Guidices. Obviously they are the ones who created the problems. BTW Kathy did apologize to Senior Gorga and to Teresa, but its evident they want to continue to dwell on it and isolate their self from their family. It's their loss!
I will try to keep this short. I personally feel that Joey, Melissa and Kathy owe Teresa, Joe, and Teresa's Parents an apology. The problem I had was how Teresa's family became a part of the show. I put most of the blame on Joey, and then Kathy - because they are Teresa's blood. Melissa kept informing Danielle information about Teresa and they wanted to be on the show. Melissa admitted what she did; she stated "that is when she hated Teresa". What kind of person would do that to her sister-in-law her husband's sister and knowing that would hurt her father and mother in-law? It seems like this point was lost when it comes to people who doesn't like Teresa, Joe, Kathy/her husband, Melissa, Caroline and Jac. I guess I will never understand how they went about getting on the show and feeling it was no big deal. What they did shows their true character. How could anybody be upset with Teresa when her family came on a show to ruin her career and try to gain the fame that Teresa received? I was excusing Teresa for a while, because I wouldn't know how I would have handed that situation if I continued the show. I think she should have threatened to leave the show, but her family was going through financial and personally problems. I think they all need to apologize, but what started the cra* was when they came on the show to destroy Teresa and they knew there were serious family issues. Then I think they may be able to move on. I don't think they need to do it on TV/Cable, but it need to be done. There was too much damage and humiliation that shouldn't have been on TV/Cable. Where I am from we call Teresa's family trifling.
Kathy you need to tell your husband and sister to stop all the attacks on Tre, and you two just make up already. I really really liked you until all the scenes where you just sit there while everyone bashed Tre and her husband.....and you took part in the gang up scenes where everyone of you is screaming at Tre while your husband cheered it on in the background. Didn't any of you think that was wrong when you re watched the scenes later? How the heck would you feel if you had that all happening to you...you would hate it...
What attacks? They have every right to comment about the situation. Rich is Kathy's husband and Rosie is Kathy's sister as well as Teresa's cousin. Why is it OK for Teresa to discuss family problems as well as trash family with outsiders (Kim/Linda) and its not OK for Rich and Rosie to discuss family problems to family. This is not a 'kiss your ring' situation. I don't get a lot of Teresa fans logic! Also, if you are talking about the reunion when you say gang up, do you realize you are defending a person who worshipped a coffee table and insulted everyones physical appearance. Deflected every question by Andy! Maybe you should ask Teresa what she thought of those scenes!
I am surprised no on this blog has called you out about what you said about Mel........ You said you didn't believe she had a sore throat...Right? But, I did happen to notice you said it behind her back and nothing to her face............ KATHY who is the real COWARD ??????????? I think it maybe YOU......... You and the rest of you bullying cast mates need to stop throwing stones when you all live in glass houses...
I did but on Melissa blog when as usual she was playing the victim. Kathy is a nice person I think she got caught in the moment on the reunion. She knows what she said was not right. Kathy is a pretty honest person and peaked Melissa card she was not sick. Everybody talks about Teresa's husband but Kathy husband is just as inappropriate with his remarks.
You and Rich have done a great job raising your children. I would like to see more of you and less of the Gorga family feud. Linda appears to be a toxic two-faced malcontent;
Kathy you are all the good things in life and you have Rosy for a sister! So much fun I am sure! But you worry, I do to I have never been the free spirit, but we are who we are! Please don't worry about others, it is easier for people to hate then love!
Are you serious! Kathy is a great Mom who has done a great job! Maybe Teresa should take a tip from Kathy on parenting! After Teresa looks up the definition of micromanaging, she should def follow through and be a mother and not a BFFL!
Kathy - People who are overweight, skinny, short, or tall all have similar problems. Most have been teased or been subjected to inappropriate comments about body size or shape, and have trouble finding clothes that fit. Your skinny bitch comment is just as hurtful as the fat girl comments. I hope you realize that you are just as guilty of doing what you've accused Linda of doing.
No its not! Folks are just making an issue out of the comment because it is all they got! You can call me 'skinny bitch' all day long!
Robinlynn Wildfire2 How about if they just called you bitch? Would that not bother you either?
And kathy was complimenting Linda when she made her comment " FU#%$ skinny bitch" Works both way's!
Yep, I hear you about weight. I think that most women's weights go up and down depending upon life itself. Mine sure has and like you I usually catch it before it gets really out of hand.
I felt sad that you didn't go to see your uncle when he was in the hospital. When people are seriously ill it's time to let go of grudges and just be there for them... You may regret this kind of choice someday.
I hope that you and Teresa can become cousins and friends again. Melissa is not worth fighting over...
ALasVegasHousewife i agree. She is not the same person this season, and it is because she is hanging with Grouch Face Caroline. I can't stand Kathy this season. She used to be so sweet and nice.
she was never nice
i don't really care for theresa but her family came on the show just to bash theresa
Don't worry about what some say about people's bodies. They may look good on the outside but they are ugly on the inside. You, Jacqueline, Caroline and Melissa are much nicer people than Teresa and her bully crew.
BlueSky7 are you KIDDING? Since Kathy starting hanging with that crew, she turned mean and nasty. (the rest just happened as coincidence)
Is nice watching your family. A break away from the usual, Gorga/Guidice drama. I'm glad you are on the show. I know you are related to T, but it's fun watching you separately.
housewife324 Hey, wait a second..he may be silly and laugh at things
at perhaps some inappropriate times..but NOT kind hearted? No, I believe you're wrong.
Did you think it was kind hearted when Richie went to his daughters school and made fun of her friends using the meal plan too often? Imagine how those girls felt having that degenerate say that about them on national television.
