Sorry for the blog miss last week -- tons going on, and in case you didn't know, Rich has a new bromance with Andrew Dice Clay. We all hung out in N.J. while Dice did his show, and yes, Rich was told by Dice that he does have the funny bone! OMG being with two peas in a pod it was so hilarious my side still hurts. Then we were off to Denver, where it was great meeting and being with Top Chef Master Jen Jasinski at Rioja -- in fact, it was awesome!
Before we get into the episode, thanks always for your support and for watching our show, especially as we approached the season finale!
Now on to the last two episodes.
Congratulations to the Manzo boys; the opening of Little Town went off without a hitch. They never should have worried, but I understand that nervous/excited feeling when you're doing something you love in public. I'm sure they made their Mom and Dad proud!
It was bittersweet to see my baby Joseph (not such a baby anymore) driving off into Jersey -- they grow up so fast! It seems like yesterday when Richie and I started our life together with no kids and he ruled the roost. Now 22 years later the kids are grown and I am leader of the pack!
I like you, but I dont understand either that you put up with that husband of yours, he is just too much
Who are these people? They are the ones your husband and Joe Go visited before the trip to Arizona. They are the same ones you and Richie called the night before Posche 2.
Richie is disgusting. He is turning your son into a mini-me. You seem like a good mom, so do the right thing and tell your husband to be a good role model.
After this season. I've had it. Time to save my brain from these mean spirited, untalented, unintelligent "housewives" and change the channel.
I understand you wanting to have your own voice and be heard. Unfortunately from day one, you have set yourself up to be Mel/Joe's lacky sidekick to help carry out their agenda. You have from day one only had a storyline of lets get together with Mel/Joe and talk trash about Teresa. You came on with this animosity, that this view never understood why, it was never articulated what your problem was with your cousin.... we were just expected to believe she had done some egregious things to you and it was all her fault and you were innocent. Now, you go on the interview circuit, a F list star if that, most of your interview consists of taking questions about Teresa. You state on Bethanny's talk show that you and Teresa didn't have any issues before you came on the show. Huh?? if that is the case why did you sit around talking trash about her all during that first season? You made snide remarks about her intelligence, trashed her at every gathering and after you ticked her off about leaving the baby unattended instead of calling her to make amends you ran over to Caroline's to explain yourself? It really is no wonder you feel you have "no voice" or "no identity". You are and will always be forever in Housewifedom just Teresa's cousin who was once a Housewife. You did it to yourself...sorry, but truth is truth.
madsharky I have to disagree with just about everything you said. everyone has the right to state their opinion. just want to let Kathy know that there are people who see both sides so don't get discouraged from all of the really critical and sometimes just plain mean comments like murphy1, rzanna, octoberquilt and whoever else seems to have bitten into a bitter sour lemon. As long as you stay positive and don't lie to create drama to try to hurt fellow cast mates, you are one step ahead of some of the housewives.
Why are you still on the show? I think it is because there is so much interest in your sister, Rosie. She is a real star, in my opinion, but you, on the other hand, are not interesting.
rzanna I find her interesting and she seems to have alot to offer the story line, that is if the self-inflicted Teresa and Joe's present predicament and the never ending, immature bickering between Teresa and Melissa is over. Those story lines are getting a bit old, like kicking the dead horse over and over. Nobody else has had a chance to do anything other than deal with that bs for such a long time on the show. Settle the feud already! When Jaq gets a few scenes with sweet little Nick is like a breath of fresh air. Can"t wait to see the construction of your dream home!
I think you are misunderstood. You are usually not in the limelight and you are okay with that. I don't care what other viewers say; I like your character.
I never liked the way you and Talked about Teresa but I never would have guessed your family has been the ones spreading the rumors. RealtyRow really spelled it out. How could you sit back and let Melissa, Teresa and Jac take the heat for all the rumors when you knew it was you and your friends all along. Geez
Octoberquilt Wait...maybe I missed something...how did you come to that idea, When did that information come out about Kathy. Kathy was not involved in the rumors, right? Just because Kathy's children may have had some link to those people that were spreading the rumors does not in any way mean that Kathy or Richie where involved, what would be their gain from the rumors. Teresa has already cleared up all of that, from what I saw, but like I said, maybe I missed a scene...please clarify that Octoberquilt, because I am confused.
You looked beautiful at the reunion. I am happy you are enjoying your successes. And I loved, loved, loved the way you stood up to the cyber haters who stalk you and Rich and basically told them to go suck an egg. Way to go, Kathy! I knew you had spunk in there somewhere. Best of luck with all future endeavors, you deserve it. And, I just think Rosie is the cutest thing.
Don't trip on all of these insane comments. Keep your head held high. Even after Teresa has admitted, "in her own way" to being the fuel to the family fire, these people want to rally around her. I do want to encourage you to recognize you may be letting your bad moods influence how you may react to your fellow cast. Your positivity has stood up through so much, don't quit now and end up being labeled as the weak link. \
After all this time it comes out that YOU and your husband have a long-standing relationship with "Johnny the Greek" who spread all of the rumors about Melissa. Did you think the viewers don't have the internet or something? What a joke that you can sit there and say "who are these strangers" meddling in your family's lives.
I don't think Teresa's perfect, but she never had a chance at a good relationship with her brother with people like you and her sister-in-law doing whatever you can to take her down.
I read her daughter dates JTG's nephew! Can't prove it but that's what I read
Just watched the reunion. Nice pageant dress, but you're too late, Wicked already has someone playing Elphaba.
Why is it only Tre has to admit her mistakes? What about you--your husband--and the lousy piece of crap Melissa and her whipped hubby joey marco? And Caroline? She's trash. I'm not sure who's trashier--Melissa or you or Caroline. You all stand on high thinking you're better than everyone. Who are you people?
Just want to tell you - You always stood united against Teresa. If Teresa goes - there goes the show, not because Teresa is so good but you and Beyonce wanna be will have absolutely no value not that either of you did. All you and the old screeching "thank you Jesus" bat had from the beginning was to bitch slap Teresa and start rumors about her.
I would like to remind everyone of the episodes way back when Melissa and Kathy were introduced to the cast, where Teresa had to take credit for everyone of their accomplishment in one way or another. Remember the fight that the two Joes had about helping joe gorga with learning the business they were in. I have got to wonder if falsifying documents of fake income in order to obtain loans was part of the curriculum. If the Giudices are the one to credit for the rest of their family members successes maybe they all better re-evalute what they are doing as well. Just saying...
drakey qtrwatcher Agreed. Looked like two black holes. It's a shame because she really does have pretty eyes.
Kathy- My daughter introduced me to the Housewives series about the time you entered the picture. I feel badly for all the negative blogs out there about you and your husband. I have nothing to say against you- just wish you well, but your husband needs to tone down his language. Take it from a former educator- he can improve his personality on camera. People generally are turned off to that. He says really raunchy things to his son at times. It is a turn-off. When you start filming your next season [maybe you have started] I hope that he will be less vulgar..
Kathy, out of all the housewives, you are my favorite. I love your children, And I have a secert crush on your hubby!!! But shhhhhhh...... Don't tell my hubby! You are why I've continued to watch the show. Although, I'm also a big fan of Nicks! Lol..... I'm a big cheerleader for that adoeable little man and his very brave Mommy and daddy..... Not to mention big brother CJ..... Continue with your selfrespect Kathy and God will.take you all the way, Your loyal fan, Daw Young from Menifee CA pm
Kathy, I want to applaud your bravery in coming on this crazy show in the first place. Your cousin wanted it all to herself and just went bananas when Bravo went after you for the show. You had to have known what a jealous fit your twisted, narcissic cousin would throw. She started fights with you over the tiniest of reasons, blowing them all out of proportion to maintain the false image she was attempting to have before the public. Poor thing, it just scared her to death that people who knew where all the skeltons were buried were on the show. You showed us that there were people in the familiy with grace and dignity. You tried to stay above all Teresa's hate filled digs at you. Congrats, Kathy. You are the most sane and centered person on the show. Love, love, love ya.
rosyposy Bravery???? Really? No one dragged her onto the show.
Katfish and her vile, infantile husband clawed their way in, humiliating themselves in the process.
All to sell a couple of cannolis. Classless!
Rich friends wih Andrew Dice Clay??? Perfect. Wow, Kathy you did it. You're now famous--- new career, everyone knows Ricthie's name when he goes out the front door- you did it! I just don't know how you live with the ill will, and vile way you went about getting yours from a reality show you weren't asked to do until they knew you'd give them a nasty storyline for ratings. Seriously?? You went in spitting mad because your cousin Teresa was famous and making it with NY times bestsellers about COOKING of all things? You did everything in your power to bring Teresa down including teaming up with her brother and wife- you were crucial in that role. In fact, it's the only thing you'll ever be crucial with on this show. I don't care how nice you seem, or whatever you do in the future for the betterment of humanity-- YOU have emotionally tortured your cousin for fame and you got what you wanted. I still remember the reunions where your face was contorted and you were out for blood from your own cousin JUST because you had back-up on that stage. The hate was cancerous and spread- and now the spotlight and fine tooth comb is on the Gudices because after all- even her own family hated her. Those were the headlines for two seasons. I hope you and The Gorgas are happy- job well done. When you lay down at night, midst the cannolis, midst the fame, midst the bookings with your family in the press, you must know what you've done--and justify it in your head- over, and over, and over..
...when you lay down at night, midst the cannolis??...geez--- I wish I had thought of that!!...ROFL... :-)
this person/commentator is whacked! these people who watch the show think they have great insights into stranger's lives...get a life!
louise123 So Bravo is looking for nasty storylines for ratings? Doesn't say much for Bravo --or the viewers.
louise123 "You did everything in your power to bring Teresa down" Really! cause we all know that she( Kathy) secretly meet with Kim D and Penny and started and bunch of lies on twitter.
" I don't care how nice you seem, or whatever you do in the future for the betterment of humanity-- YOU have emotionally tortured your cousin for fame and you got what you wanted."
Dang Woman Hate much? All this anger over someone you don't even know. I think it's time you changed the Channel.
I just have to tell you that you are so beautiful....your hair and eyes to die for!..But what makes you so beautiful is your integrity and kindness that you show everyone. I wish you the very best in your business ventures and God Bless you and your family...........!!
Kathy apparently got a big piece of that pie!!! Isn't that what she wanted? Help take Teresa down & achieve fame and fortune. Richie now drives a fancy sports car, doesn't work, Kathy tries to dress fashionably but doesn't quite hit the mark. Now a brand new house. Ah, moving on up.....now to just remember what room she left her soul in.
Robson She should thank Teresa for that new house!! LMAO!! Kathy definitely took the easy road!! Instead of years and years of hard work in a bakery! she thought it would be much easier to jump on Teresa's bandwagon!! and immediately start pedaling her product! all while slamming Teresa! (the hand that feeds her) She even had the audacity to accuse Teresa of stealing her moms recipe!! and she still hasn't come clean about it..... Kathy is a hot passive aggressive mess!!
