Rich has gotten lots of criticism for his rude behavior. It is sad for Kathy how embarassing to read all the negative comments. She knows more than anyone what he is like, warts and all. She married him and did not have a crystal ball to see into the future ( enter RHONJ) My best guess ....behind closed doors she calls him on his behavior often. If he were on stage doing standup improve it would work....not on a reality TV show.
