Would Melissa Gorga Like Kathy Wakile & Rosie Pierri to Return?

It seems that whenever Melissa Gorga appears on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, a question about her cousins-in-law, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri, manages to sneak its way in there. And Wednesday's episode of WWHL definitely included a caller asking if she keeps in touch with the sisters and RHONJ alums, who have been estranged from their The Real Housewives of New Jersey relatives for quite some time.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

"No, I really haven't had much contact with them," she said in the WWHL Clubhouse on November 13. "And would I like them to come back to the show? I'm down for whatever; whatever the boss man wants."

And how did Andy Cohen feel about that response? "Alright," he simply responded.

Alright, indeed.

Here's a quick history lesson: Kathy officially joined RHONJ during Season 3, the same season as Melissa. Kathy exited after Season 5, but did make appearances with sister, Rosie, during Seasons 6 and 7. And it was pretty evident during those seasons that things were definitely tense between the Gorga-Giudices and the Wakile-Pierris, as you can see below.
