Before I get in to my thoughts I want to tell you all how much my family and I appreciate your kind words and support. We are in Italy, hopping from city to city and indulging in the flavors of each! Rich and I took this trip about 6 years ago. Now we thrilled to be doing it with Victoria and Joseph. Check out my Instagram @officialkathywakile for my photo journal.
It’s incredible to meet so many people from other countries as well as the U.S. that watch our show and have become so emotionally invested as we are. Thank you for sharing your stories and opinions, it really means so much to us.
Now for the episode:
OMG! I often ask myself why things can't be easier. Most things that have depth go through some type of turmoil to get there -- the earth was created by the big bang, and then beauty arose, etc.
Kathy, this messaqe is for your sister, Rosie -- Rosie, don't give up hope. You are a good person with strong values. You do tend to come on a bit tough, though. But, If I was gay, I'd take you on, you're a peach!! Try not to be so defensive, girl.
Melissa does not want joe and Theresa to be a family again. I cannot wait to see him when he realize how wrong he has been about the whole thing.
Kathy, thanks for coming back and being your sweet self again! But please have your husband stop bashing Teresa, he was talking about her like he's the housewife! I really liked seeing you and Teresa cooking and having fun together, please have more of those times! Good luck to you with your pastry business!
Kathy, your a sweet lady, just be classy, and it will all work out. You all need to get your parents together, and end the issues. I don't think Teresa was as mad at you as you were at her, and I didn't see her really do anything intentionally to hurt you. You feel left out, but I think its because your issues aren't as severe as some Teresa has been dealing with others!! Good Luck
I hope to watch the episode when somebody tell Richie to STFU or to be a man a tell Teresa to her face what he says instead of being a coward and talking crap behind her back. Why does he even get to have talking head time, he is my least favorite housewife.
Kathy I'm actually starting to jump on the Kathy bandwagon!!! Please Please just have Teresa's back! Blood is thicker than water!! You and Teresa seem to have much more common ground than you and Melissa!! Watching you and Teresa cook together was fun!! I would love to see more of that!! without any of the catty comments in your talking heads interview!! afterwards! Melissa was extremely disrespectful to you at dinner!! she basically said your boring!!
Kathy, wake up and smell the coffee! Your husband is a BIG ASS CREEP and you deserve more respect than he gives you. What kind of man would grab his sister in laws breasts in front of his wife and think it is funny. He is repulsive and disrespectful to you and you just sit there and let him do it. Get a backbone and let him know you demand to have respect. People treat you the way that you let them. Keep your man in line, or get rid of him.
You deserve better.
Also, you are no angel and you are always talking trash about Teresa. Leave her alone and be proud of the person she has become. You do not wear jealously well.
You make desserts - that's the story that you wanted to share with the world? It's a good thing that you are married to a truly repulsive person because otherwise there would be no reason to watch you. You should thank Teresa for getting you on the show and Richie for keeping you on it. OK, so it is a bit entertaining watching everyone forget about you though.
I think it's nice that you apologized. But let's face it, you are riding Teresa's coat tails. You just don't have a story without her. Well, really none of you do!
Kristi0913 That is for certain. Proof? No two of them can be together without talking about Teresa. They just can't find anything else to talk about.
REBECCA9247 Kristi0913 agree! also, did u notice melissa being disrespectful to kathy as soon as she got drunk? kathy needs to learn melissa does not really like her, she was just using her to go against teresa
Your husband is repulsive and I truly wish that Bravo would remove you both from the show. They can keep Rosie because she is a decent human being with a big heart. You and your husband are meddling troublemakers and are not ebntertaining or enjoyable to watch. You constantly make things about YOU and you constantly bad mouth Teresa behind her back. Go bake some canolis and leave the viewing audience alone.
merilyn.ulrich You proved everything was about you when you got upset when Dr. V left and didn't talk with you. You weren't the reason she was there, girl.. She came to address the issue you were there to fix. What do you think you could have added that was important? You may bake, and you do a great job rolling your eyes, but little else.
I am a little confused because you say you and Teresa are on good terms but seems like you keep making lil passive aggressive comments about her. saying she ran opposite way when they fought, wasn't she getting help? I don't think anyone is 100 percent right or 100 percent wrong in any family struggles but does seem like no matter what you all blame Teresa and her husband for everything under the sun. Teresa went out crying to her husband the joe called her scum you know you and def Melissa would've done same thing but when she does she caused the whole thing?!
lovehwnj1105 agree and she has run to Richie a few times like when he threatened to burn the house down. Only difference is Richie cant confront people only talk behind their back.
Kathy, your husband is so inappropriate not to mention embarrassing, he needs to shut up and stay out of other peoples business!
Let me give my props to Richie... first off he always cracks me up... He is just right out there with whatever is on his mind at any given moment... But his comments about the fight between the two Joe's and Teresa were spot on... Not to mention that he took it upon himself to go directly to the source of the matter to speak his mind... This is how men solve their differences...no behind the back crap... if he said it, then he owns it..." Right On Ritchie" ... You da man... and with a great sense of family I might add too... All God's blessings to you and yours...
It's a shame you have so much going for you;..natural charm, beauty, nice voice, cute kids, etc..and you show such an ugly side on national tv by allowing your trashy, buck toothed husband talk so much smack about your own blood and even your daughters friends! Tell him to stop. You do not have to be jealous of Teresa anymore, you are doing your own thing, stop already, be the game changer and tell Melissa where to go at the reunion, you will see fans flock to you by the thousands for doing the right thing.
Luckyla you are so right. if she would just say how she really felt stop following the crowd people would have a lot more respect for her and see if she really as kind she says she is
lovehwnj1105 Luckyla Your right. If Kathie would speak the truth and back Teresa, show Melissa the door, she might have a backbone and a story. But right now she just looks petty. That comment when Dr V was leaving spoke volumes. (Hey Kath, It wasn't about you, and if you really thought you needed words then stand up and say something instead of the backbiting.) Richie cracks me up, but gets pretty creepy sometimes. The comment about you smelling like a fish? If my husband did that he'd have no more fish for dinner!
Kathy, what I don't understand is why you and Rich focused on Teresa telling her husband that her brother called her "scum." Isn't it always Melissa that runs to her husband to tattle on Teresa? At the Posh fashion show, as soon as Teresa told Melissa about the man talking about her, Melissa quickly said she was going to call her husband. I don't understand why you and Rich didn't think this was wrong? Clearly you are not in the middle - you are absolutely on Melissa and Joe Gorgas side. I think the viewers would respect you more if you just admitted that.
Teresa was right. You were the one who reached over and scratched Joe Guidice in the face when he was fighting with Joe Gorga. At first I thought it was Melissa but it was you because you can see the cream sweater that you had on. You are one sneaky person and extremely passive aggressive.
Ceci2468 Ceci you are nuts. Kathy is the one sane member of the bunch. Kathy - you are so wonderful and real. Keep being you babe. You are real and we viewers love that - especially those of us who own our own planes and sometimes get invites to fund raisers for the likes of the Clinton Foundation.
Rivno77 Ceci2468 is it that serious, that you insult Ceci?, She is just voicing her opinion. This is fluff reality TV, no need for the viewer to start hurling insults at each other.
Cyn44 - The info evidently comes from "Teresa" and/or viewers watching a crazy melee in nano seconds. Can we call it as questionable....I sure do.
Even if true, how about that when Kathy tried to break up a family fight, possibly scratched a face of 'any one' involved...accidently? Amazing, that it is now reduced as factual 'deliberate' action on her part.
Kathy, you are a voice of reason on this show. You are the kindest and warmest cast member by far. This show needs you to balance out all of Teresa's craziness and delusions. Keep your head up!
It's not kind to jump in a fight and start grabbing at, and scratching your cousin's husband's face.
But, Kathy, you wanted to butt in. You aggravate every situation, which never needs to be the case. You and Richie say terrible things about Teresa every chance you get! Hate the constant eye rolls during your talking heads moments. Don't you remember how you attacked Teresa at the Posh gathering about Teresa leaving her daughter alone during the Christening party fight? That was a fight started by your favorite person -- Gorga. It was so obvious that you wanted to do that on camera. Your first attempt, but never the last, to try to destroy Teresa! We, the viewers, could see what you were doing. You certainly could have done that behind-the-scenes to prevent the public humiliation of Teresa. If you are such a kind person, that scene made it obvious that you really aren't and that you are completely on Melissa's side to try to bring shame to Teresa. Do you think we're stupid?
I think you and Melissa are delusional. are you watching the same episode as all of us?? Teresa didn't leave, she got help AND CAME BACK. I also don't understand why everyone gives excuses for Joe and Melissa's poor behavior but when Teresa acts poorly you all go at her like wolfs. Just like you all suggested it was wrong for Teresa to remain friends with Kim D. Isn't wrong of you and Melissa to remain friends with Caroline and Jack? Call me crazy but you all appear very hypocritical.
@Jen0827 Kathy and Melissa are (as Melissa would say "sckheeeming" and getting ready for their attack on Teresa at the reunion. They think we are dumb and didn't see Teresa go get security, which was the ONLY smart thing to do.
And I thought the Gorga family had issues, after reading some of the posts from RHONJ fans on the various cast blogs you have to wonder who really needs the professional help. Many of the posts are filled with vile comments and hatred and it doesn't matter who's team you are on. It is one thing to have an opinion but to take it to such a dark level is not necessary and sad.
Robson J-9@Bflo Bflo I really think you should read I mean really read some of these comments. Some of them are way out of line for it being a tv show about people they truly know very little about.
J-9@Bflo thats because we are subject to vile hateful comments every Sunday night!! LOL And by the way Kathy Melissa Rich and crybaby took it to a dark place before they even got to the retreat..On the bus the were already making hateful vile comments!!!!!!!!! funny that you would write that...
Honestly, Rich needs to mind his own business. Ii can't take looking at him another episode. The conflict between Teresa and her brother is between them.
I am tired of watching him week after week stirring the pot and pretending he has good intentions in mind.
He loves the drama. He is trying to make himself relevant in the show because he brings nothing else.
Bravo needs to stop giving him air time. He has nothing to offer.
