Kathy Wakile

Kathy had fun helping Rosie search for eligible singles.

on Aug 7, 20130

We’re back after our fantastic trip to Italy. So grateful to have had the opportunity to do this with Rich, Victoria, and Joseph. Check out my Instagram @officialkathywakile for my photo journal. I apologize for being really late with my blog entry; traveling with time change overseas really throws you for a loop, but we were super excited to be back in our home in Jersey. It is great to go away, but always better to come back ‘cause there’s no place like home!

Now on to the episode:
 
It put a smile on my face to see Teresa, Melissa, Joe, and Joe and all the kids together. Go forward; it’s about building a whole bunch of new happy memories. It totally reminded me of when we all as cousins used to play and hang out, and we shared a lot of first things together. Those childhood memories keep us bonded together, no matter what! So it was nice to see that the younger generations are the same and still have that natural unconditional love and affection! So, so happy for all of them!

Kathy, I think you are wonderful.  And if you wouldn't mind, I would love to go on a date with Rosie.I just love her.  I too find it hard to meet good women, especially living in a small town.  I'm  what people would consider a fem, if someone were to label me.  But Rosie is the women of my dreams and I would give anything to meet her.  Please pass this along to her.  I am not one of those crazy women and don't do the bar scene.  I am a homebody.  I love the show as well except for some people.  Kathy you and Rosie are so genuine and I love that.

Rosie, Be realistic about finding a partner. There are plenty of attractive, available, good, decent, lesbian women on the internet. You will likely NOT find someone in a bar. Do not expect perfection. Be tolerant and open to getting to know people. Look for someone age appropriate and do not expect super model material. It is okay to have "a type" but be open minded.

I know EXACTLY what Rosie has gone through and is going through now. It is far from an easy life. It is hard enough dealing with everyday life and things that happen...either happy or sad or tough. However, growing up gay is absolute hell. You don't really realize it usually until about 9 years of age or so....that you are somehow "different." then, you see some kids making fun of you and you immediately realize why. You overhear certain words or see certain looks. It is SO very hurtful no one who has not gone through it will ever understand at all. For ANYONE to say it is a "choice" in life.......walk in the shoes of someone who is gay. Years and years of unhappiness and sometimes, depression. You feel so alone it is not even funny. Who would ever "choose" to have that kind of life? No one. In today's world, some people "experiment" with it just for "fun." However, when you grew up that way, there is a HUGE difference.

I know the lonliness that Rosie has experienced and the underlying anger sometimes because it comes from depression and not having the choices of many places to go to find someone to date. I also find people who are gay to be much more understanding, compassionate and loving because they went through so much themselves that they can understand any problem and try to help. Even though things are getting better over the past twenty years or so, it is still difficult out there trying to find a "mate." Heterosexuals have no idea.

I wish Rosie all of the best and all the love in the world because she is such a kind, caring, loving genuine human being. I have always tried to be the same but it still does not help me find someone. I, as a matter of fact, would love to have Rosie just as a friend as I am older than she. Also, some women who are gay like a woman who is more feminine and some like one who is more masculine. Rosie and I have the exact same taste. A nice, caring, loving, intelligent woman who is also on the feminine side and is beautiful, inside and out. Let's be honest......ALL of us, as humans first "see" the person we end up with and their "looks." It is then that we find we are either attracted first or not...right? Then we see how they are on the inside. Hopefully, nice.

Take good care Rosie. I hope you find someone nice very soon. Someone who is just as caring and thoughtful with you as you are with them....not someone who is selfish and just wants from you only. Kathy........you are so lucky to have Rosie as your sister! Rosie is also very lucky to have you. God Bless you both!! Kathy, you hang in there also and do not listen to some of the people on here who are cruel. Do not waste your time. There are many nice people out there. Take care.

Kathy I find it interesting that Teresa made one comment about you possibly not being that supportive of Rosie being gay? and you have felt the need to comment on it twice? Why? I have a feeling Teresa nailed it... and now your feeling a little bit guilty?! It would make sense as to why your children were almost of legal age before anyone sat down to actually have a conversation with them about Rosie being gay?!! I always thought that was rather weird.. I have known since I can remember that my uncle is gay?! It was never a big family secret! I'm not judging you over this but you should just own it! instead of blaming it on not liking Rosie's partner?

Everything Teresa has said has come eventually of being true. She did say that you and the rest of the family turned on Rosie when she said she was gay. And you denied it but now that I see you talking to Rosie it really sounds that that's exactly what y'all did. You made an excuse about not liking the girl she was with at the time, whatever it was because hse was gay. So in my point of view all you are hypocrites just like Teresa said. I'm glad we are seeing the real family now. I'm happy for Teresa that everything she has said for the past two years is true. She's not pulling thhings out of her a**. You and your nasty,disgusting,boor of a husband need to go. So tired of the two bulged out eyes monsters !!!!

OK here's the good thing...If Teresa does "go away", everybody's blog will be reduced to one page because they won't have anything interesting to talk about.

As hard as you and Richie have tried to become relevant, you just aren't. You are the worst kind of snake in the grass. You are the queen of passive aggressive. The sister-in-law has used you and tossed you and Richie aside. Don't you find the way your husband drools over the sister-in-law the least bit disgusting? Leave Rosie alone taking your husband to a lesbian bar was an exercise in poor taste. He is exactly the kind of man that is most unwelcome with his low minded sexual jokes.

Kathy I'm sure you do have happy memories with your cousins. One reason you did is because Teresa was living life. Things change and now she and Joey and even you are living a life style. I hope it was all worth it. Sad......

Don't worry about Rosie, she's just fine.  You Kathy need to stop biting the hand that feeds you.  Teresa put you and your cannoli on the map and you should be paying homage every single day for that reason alone.  Taking sides with Melissa in an attempt to garner pity for yourself was a bad move and made you and your husband very unlikable people. If Teresa is the cause of the problems then drop the show and go sell your pastry at your husbands gas stations.

Your sister's a catch! One day there will be a very lucky woman out there! Just please make sure that she takes it easy with the sauce if you know what I mean.

its sad but i feel melissa and kathy use rosie because they know fans love her, so they use her for fun camera time...it was very telling when rosie didn't even know how to get to melissa's house. how close can they really be?... from what i see in the webisodes of joe and rosie, they have a close fun relationship and she's over at Teresa's house a lot...

If it wasn't for Rosie, you would have no relevance on this show. I'm sorry, but it's true. And, I'm so tired of you kissing Caroline's butt on the show and in EVERY one of your blogs. It's sickening.

Rosie clearly has more fun w/Joe and T.  And trust me, to were NOT lucky to find love at an early age.  No one, but no one wants to see or hear your husband.

Kathy, I'm hoping that you're included in some of get togethers that Teresa and her family are at, because I still think all is not good between you both!

Your entire time on the show Kathy, not cool at all what you have done.

About Teresa's alleged growth because she finally apologized.  ??????  I remember Teresa apologizing repeatedly to several people last season.  Exactly what she was apologizing for I still can't figure out because it definitely appeared that she was the victim and not the culprit.  What was missing were apologies from the rest of you because you all were always the ones who were in the wrong.  To try to turn it around at this point is just not going to work.  Might does not make right.  Now that a truce has been declared, perhaps you can find another equally hateful and cruel family to help out who also revels in brutally ganging up against one innocent family member.  Anything for relevancy.

I love watching you Kathy. It's hard when you have to deal with all of the pain that you see family members inflict upon each other. Let it be a lesson for you and yours. They've really set the example of what NOT to do! God bless you and your beautiful family!

The best thing Kathy could do for for her sister is to have an intervention - Rosie needs serious rehab and is not in a good place to start a relationship.  Just sayin.

Rosie is so cute! Love how she is so real and up front. No phonies from her at all. Not like the rest of you. Take personality lessons from Rosie.

Kathy and Rosie seem to be the only sane ones on the show.......hope Rosie meets someone she is a teddy bear ready for hugs

Kathy, I'm very happy for you & your family!  I do think Melissa is still not on board the make up train because she is still is making snide remarks to Teresa!  Hope for the best & really hope you will all stand behind Teresa & Joe while they are facing their legal problems!  I think that will tell whether you are all being honest about standing with your family no matter what!  Whatever, please tell Richie to keep his mouth out of it!  God Bless!!!

@piperbeau it's different in a conservative Italian family, I'm. Sure she meant no harm. It's a very personal thing and she used her best judgement.

kappadarling

 @piperbeau Do you remember that Rosie was nervous to sit down her niece and nephew to tell them that she was gay? She wasn't sure how they were going to react. That was VERY telling! I believe what Teresa said about Kathy not accepting it at first just because of Rosie being scared to tell her family.

NJerseyGal
NJerseyGal

 @piperbeau Me too.  Kathy seems very defensive about it.  And Teresa said it so calmly and matter of factly.  Don't think Teresa made it up. 

mrsbean11

 @piperbeau Hahaha I thought the same thing when I saw that episode and I had a flashback to when I was in grade school and my family explained to me that both my aunt and uncle were gay. I think your right, and it's the only thing that makes sense. Plus the look on Rosie's face when Theresa said that, kinda confirmed it. She looked like she was revisiting an uncomfortable place and looked a little miffed, but she also looked kind of glad that someone was saying it out loud, validating her hurt from the rejection she received from her sister.  

littlemsdivadiva
littlemsdivadiva

 @Texas_Gal i'm noticing that too! kathy keeps bringing it up, she obviously feels guilty about it. when they first came on the show I thought teresa was reacting crazy to them but now i see teresa was right all along. I can't stand richie, why do they keep giving him "interview" time, he's NOT a housewife! also, if you see richard's twitter, he has "for bookings please email..." lol seriously! 

littlemsdivadiva
littlemsdivadiva

 @nvt totally agree! she's very passive aggressive...when she first came on the show I thought teresa was reacting crazy to her simple comments at the posche show, but NOW I see why teresa was reacting like that! she knows her cousin...now i see what kathy was doing, pushing teresa's buttons to get a reaction and then play victim. they all did that to teresa coming in, knowing teresa can explode at anytime...and who can forget her comments on teresa's desserts, "oh my mother's pastelies"..passive aggressive queen

NJerseyGal

 @mpaigemax THIS!  I wish I could like this a million times.  They ALL should be thanking Teresa for the opportunities that came their way.  Would Kathy have the cannolis, the cookbook, the advice column if she wasn't on this show trashing her cousin?  Same for Melissa.

 @susanzavagli Is it sane to get so angry at someone who is not present that you run around screaming and making obscene gestures?  Is it sane to pound your fist on the table so hard that you mess up your hand?  Not in my world.  Though I do find Rosie very likable when she isn't having a rage attack.

 @mimsy43

 You are very brave mimsy!! I admire that! Just think of all the housewives that got spin offs for their weddings. Rosie needs her own show to find a partner......if ya ask me??? That's way more entertaining than these darn weddings!!! Good luck!!

 @kappadarling  It was so strange to me!! and very telling! right there I knew their was some truth to what Teresa was saying!! I think Kathy is totally supportive now!! but I one hundred percent believe Kathy did have issues with it early on...

 @KooplaYou're definitely not alone, because I've BEEN felt this way since the beginning!  Just what in the h@ll does Teresa owe THEM an apology for, them being jealous of her?!!!!!  GET OUTTA HERE!!

 @Robson  @Revie11 I agree with both of you guys. But I do believe that maybe Rosie should talk to someone. I don't mean to sound like the new school "everyone needs a psych evaluation" and the shows are edited, but she does seem to drink a lot, and it's probably because she's so unhappy. She seems like such a great person, but it seems that she's only just starting to somewhat accept herself. I'm just saying I think maybe some counseling could help her, and she could have the great relationship she's looking for then.

@JDP @southern_goddess @Koopla @ll perhaps you need to re-watch that reunion show. Kathy called Tre father a coward, Tre moved to the other sofa, then she stated how her father was there for them after their father died. Get it right!

 @mpaigemax  @JDP  @southern_goddess  @Koopla Nail....ON THE HEAD. The Guidice-Gorga-Wakilie Family were having allot of problems. Remember way back before Messy Marco and Kathy? Theresa didnt talk any BS about her family, not one bad word. AND she was on the stage, she could have taken advantage and got shots in before Melissa got on the show, but she didnt. Melissa broke family code FIRST, and dished out to Danielle Staub (of all people) personal family drama. Kathy and Melissa clawed their way onto this show, Bravo would never have been interested unless they would bring drama. After they came on, with their passive aggressive BS act, Theresa came out, "BRING IT ON BABY!!" Lmao I love it!

JDP

 @LuvBravo.  @JDP  @southern_goddess

 Exactly, but that isn't what she said, and then when Kathy apologized what appeared to be sincerely T didn't do the same.  It is all in the delivery and perception of what is said.  It's to easier to get mad about something than it is to look from both sides of something. That is just my opinion.

 @JDP  @southern_goddess  @Koopla

I don't know...if my cousin partnered with my sister-in-law to take advantage of the strained relationship with my brother I think I might be prone to say some hurtful things too.  The fact is, Melissa got on the show to antagonize Teresa and Kathy joined the pack so that she would have some relevance.

 @JDP  @southern_goddess

 I do agree with one thing you said and that is EVERYONE owes apologies across the board. I was glad to see Kathy and Teresa apologize to each other at the retreat.

JDP
JDP

 @southern_goddess  @Koopla  @ll

 I would suspect that the apology is for the terrible things Teresa said at the reunion regarding Kathy's father.  There was a lot of mug slinging going on from all sides, so maybe some people missed it when Teresa mad the comment that Kathy's father was never around and that her father was the one that basically took care of Kathy's family. True or not she shouldn't have said it, and she made the first comment about Kathy & Rosie's  father's before Kathy called Teresa's father  a coward.  That is why Teresa needed to apologize to Kathy, as Kathy apologized for her comment on the spot.  The terrible things that are said sometimes about her sister in-law may not come directly out of Teresa's mouth but she never stops anything said or corrects it or tries to contradict it, now can't we just let them all get along please? Everyone owes apologies across the board.
