Insider Reveals Why Kathy Wakile Was Demoted and That Kathy Uses Rosie to Stay on TV; Wakiles Build New Home, Hoping to Secure Spot on RHONJ (Updated 2/11/2015)

December 3, 2013

A source e-mailed FameWhorgas in October 2013 and revealed that “the dream home that the Wakiles are building on the lot they purchased in Franklin Lakes is on hold right now” because Bravo had not offered Kathy a contract as a full-time Housewife. The following is that e-mail.

Rich twittered not to believe the B.S. (referring to Kathy getting demoted) because BravoTV told them they have not made any decisions yet. Bravo does this every season with a franchise. They do it to get fan reactions.

Rich and Kathy are freaking out because they are building, or at least talking about building, a house and Kathy has a dessert book coming out, and she thinks she should be allowed to come on for another season.

Rich is really pissed off because he feels they did everything that Production wanted them to do – re: Teresa.

Neither Rich or Kathy can comprehend why people think they are boring. Kathy will say they are not bad people; maybe that is what they mean, that is why people think they are boring. She is clueless.

Yes, the show is scripted. Remember the scene where they made it look like their son and Rosie took the car for a ride with out them knowing? They knew – production set it up because they needed something good to show. Unless it is scripted with Rich and Kathy, it is not worth showing. Rich thinks he is TV gold.

Kathy’s own statements aren’t scripted. You know, how many versions has Kathy gave why she joined the show without her cousin knowing?

Rich is a disgusting pig. When he is on his twitter assaults, he is drinking. Kathy will congratulate him when he curses someone out. She will say that’s what they get when you mess with us.

The Wakiles think they are owed something. For example, there was an incident with making dinner reservations when Rich yelled, “Tell them who we are” – he was saying that because the place was booked for the night.

Both Rich and Kathy expect freebies all the time – Rich will say he will have Kathy send out a Facebook post and twitter. It’s really pathetic. Did you see the time Rich twittered asking on Christmas Eve if a pilot had room for four people? Needed to return New Years Eve?

I wish people knew the real Rosie. Rosie wanted nothing to do with TV. That was all Kathy. When you see Rosie upset, that is Kathy in her ear. Last year, at the reunion, Kathy was working Rosie up days in advance, telling her if Teresa says anything about Daddy she just hopes she says something because she needs to hear it from Rosie.

When a blogger exposed the Wakiles for knowing who Johnny was, Rosie twittered to Teresa that she was pissing her off – that was all Kathy.

What Kathy will do is: If something comes up in blogs or tabloids and Kathy thinks Teresa is behind it, Kathy will call up Rosie and say Teresa is at it again. When Rosie twittered that, Rosie had not even read the blog – she was going by what Kathy said to her.

Kathy does not care that people think Rosie is an animal. Kathy uses Rosie as her puppet. When the rumors started that Kathy would be demoted, Kathy put Rosie on a guilt trip.

Rosie never wanted to be on TV. Last season Rosie said this was the last time or she wanted to be paid – who can blame her? BravoTV did promise Rosie more paid appearances – not necessarily a contract, but VMAs, etc.

Kathy wants Rosie to tell Production that she won’t appear next season unless her sister is a full time housewife. This is a twisted family.

Kathy made sure to reconcile with Rosie before she was on NJ because, unlike Kathy and Joe, Rosie is loyal. Rosie will NEVER admit that her own sister disowned her practically when they were younger because Rosie is gay. Kathy wanted her to get help. It’s a joke. Kathy is acting like an ambassador for the gay community when Kathy never wanted anything to do with the gay community before. If Andy Cohen knew the truth, the Wakiles would have been gone by now.

The dream home that the Wakiles are building on the lot they purchased in Franklin Lakes is on hold right now.

Contracts for season 6 will be signed – it is just a matter of which ones – Kathy has Rosie to thank as explained above.

As far as Richie goes, he will tell you that Andy loves him.

Kathy is up Teresa’s ass now that Caroline is out of the picture, but their relationship is strained still.

As far as the Wakiles being demoted in season 7, on July 13, 2014, Rosie Pierri got into a twitter war with a viewer who mocked the Wakiles for being demoted. Rosie tweeted:

“At least I was there to get fired who fuck r u douche bag !! @BITCH_CATCHER: GET LOST LUNATIC✌️YOU WERE FIRED‼️‼️ #RHONJ RT @RosiePierri: And I can’t forget my cool ass cousin @joegorga @melissaGorga”

UPDATE NOVEMBER 2014: Andy Cohen wrote in his newest book, ‘The Andy Cohen Diaries,’ that Richie kept making jabs at him for “throwing them away” when Andy didn’t renew Kathy’s contract as a full-time Housewife for season 6:

“I saw Kathy and Richard Wakile tonight at the show and Rich kept making jokes about me throwing them away in the trash, because Kathy isn’t going to be a ‘full’ Housewife this season. I explained to Kathy that I couldn’t put her in the show opening because it would cause big problems with other Housewives. Everybody wants to be in the show open.”

Richie Wakile is disgusting, and he and Kathy have gotten close to the twins and Abbey Feiler-Kober (who provided the venue for the Project Ladybug event in season 6), no doubt in an attempt to secure a spot for season 7.

With Teresa going to the pokey and Dina being bullied off by Jacqueline, Kathy, Amber, Jim and Melissa, the Wakiles are trying to worm their way in via the newbies, but that could be in vain if the twins and Marcheses are not offered contracts for season 7.

Perhaps producers should bring back Kathy and add her estranged brothers and their wives to the cast to expose their family secrets, since she and Melissa believe RHONJ is about family and mending relationships (at least that’s what they said during the season 6 reunion). Kathy herself said when taping an episode for The View on June 8, 2012: “It’s a big pie and everyone can eat from it.”

NM said on June 17, 2012 at FameWhorgas:

“The police report on Joe Gorga is the truth. Kathy also has 2 siblings with police records. I wish they would come to light. Joe Gorga called Kim D a Coke whore. Look at your own wife’s family, JoeG, and your cousins’ PD reports about drugs. We all live near each other. Albie & Greggy ARE VERY close! Caroline’s family is a complete mess. More needs to be exposed. This was a fantastic read. Thank you! Search hard and you will find the other police records. There is so much more that is hidden. #Fact – YOU’RE an open target when you become a public figure on The Telly! Teresa, you are a class act, my dear. See you at your book signing. Melissa, I have had many a lunch dates with your sisters…Stop all the lies!…You never know how people talk when catching a buzz. Rich, you’re a slumlord…How’s the gas station doing? Caroline, I’m very glad Lauren got a lap-band. She’s very beautiful. Sad you trashed her on national TV. Wonder who I am? Don’t bother to send your investigators, I talk to you every week. Hmmmm…”

Hailey said on April 25, 2012 at AllAboutTRH.com:

“I said it before. Kathy has many family skeletons in her closet about her family! It will come out! Mel’s family has many also. All will come to light soon enough! Let’s all hear about the siblings of Kathy that she hides. Mel, your sisters and their husbands are pure drunks! Why doesn’t Kathy bring up how they put things in different peoples name to hide money or that they couldn’t afford to buy the shore house (they rented it). Oops did I say too much? Kathy, thank your sister for exposing you on that!”

Richie refuted the October 16, 2013 story by RadarOnline, picked up by Perez Hilton on October 17, 2013, which stated that Kathy had been demoted to a part-time role (with the financial terms of her contract having been drastically reduced) and that her sister Rosie Pierri will finally get paid to appear on the show:

Briana Sullivan ‏@BrianaSulli 17 Oct
@richardwakile horrible I read on @PerezHilton Kathy will only be part-time next season! She brings the class and comfort! Can’t be true!

Richard Wakile ‏@richardwakile 17 Oct
@BrianaSulli @PerezHilton don’t believe the BS!

On October 6, 2012, when addressing Rosie’s presence and outburst at the season 4 reunion, Teresa told RumorFix:

“I never thought Rosie was gonna be at the reunion show. I’ve done nothing to Rosie. I have always love, love, loved Rosie. Every time I was with Kathy and I would always say to her, ‘Invite your sister’. Kathy never wanted to invite her before. They never got along. Now all of a sudden they’re all best friends. I’m just sayin’. Kathy didn’t want her sister around her kids because she was gay and because she had a girlfriend at the time. Rosie went through a lot of hard times trying to find herself.”

In the same interview with RumorFix on October 6, 2012, Teresa unleashed her dose of reality on Kathy and Richie:

“I can’t even believe they got on the show. They’ve gone to stores — they expect to get free clothes. They’re such moochers.”

kathy blowing smoke

When researching for another blog that I’m working on, I ran across some comments from July 2012 on Television Without Pity about the discussion between Rosie and Teresa (and Teresa’s TH) in season 4 where she says that Kathy didn’t always support Rosie (at the season 4 reunion, Rosie attempted to clear things up by saying Kathy knew that she was on a bad path and disapproved of that, not her). The following are some of those comments.

“Rosie denies everything Teresa has said, but I don’t trust her recall, especially because when Teresa said it, Rosie started to tear up and nodded her head in agreement. Also, Rosie’s mom let on as if there were big fights in the past between them at the dinner table.”

“I’m sure Rosie feels the need now to defend her sister, but I saw and heard different on the show. If Teresa was out of line and lying, why didn’t Rosie say right then and there outside at the table when she was giving her tabloid speech, “Hey, my sister never treated me like crap.” Nope, she put her head down and teared up a little. Says it all to me.”

“According to this family, Teresa is the devil and they’re all angels. But Teresa isn’t in agreement with everyone else’s assessment that she’s behaved so terribly (off camera) toward her brother and his wife. Therefore, that contradicts everyone’s claims about Teresa, the same way that Teresa’s claims about Kathy and Rosie’s past relationship contradicts what Kathy and Rosie say about it.”

“Regardless of what Teresa believes, there’s no denying that there is in fact an ongoing rift and issue between her and her brother in the present. We’ve seen it play out on the show. It doesn’t matter if she wants to believe it or not, the truth is there are problems between them, whereas there aren’t any current rifts between Rosie and Kathy. There was no point in Teresa bringing that up, whereas anything that has been brought up about Teresa’s behavior goes towards recent, current and ongoing strife between them that’s being captured during taping. References to the past have been made, but it isn’t done in a vacuum. Teresa randomly taking about a rough point in Kathy and Rosie’s relationship pretty much came out of the blue and for no reason.”

“At least in the case with Danielle throwing out her tidbit of information at the reunion about Melissa’s son, Danielle didn’t really care for Teresa so it wasn’t a shocker that she would say something like that, using her little bit of inside information. But who’s the enemy in Teresa’s talk with Rosie? That was some Danielle-type hate Teresa pulled on Rosie and on Kathy with those comments. I personally didn’t think that the animosity between her and Kathy was at a level of Danielle crazy but, then again, I do believe Teresa is that level of hateful. Danielle hated Teresa, so she used something painful to be hateful. And Teresa did her Danielle impression on Rosie (and ultimately Kathy) for what reason?”

“On the Wakile kids: Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they’re good kids, but a little too sweet, if you know what I mean. I get a vibe of them playing up their goodness for the cameras, stacking the deck if you will. Whenever I see the kids, I immediately think Eddie Haskell. Playing up that goodness just irritates the hell out of me. The over the top sweet speech by Victoria? I guess the halo needs to be on display (couldn’t resist). I get that same weird fakeness from Kathy though, so no surprise that the kids have it. A hint of ruthlessness from her too. It’s why I want to like her but I find something about ‘Kathy and her soft voice’ very ‘Hekyll and Jyde’. The kids’ saccharin sweetness personas aren’t even done well, but I guess that comes with age, <cough> Kathy.”

“Even though Teresa may be wrong in publicly talking about Kathy’s alleged bad treatment of Rosie in the past, I can COMPLETELY understand why Teresa feels justified in doing so. It’s because they did it to her first, and she probably wanted to give them a taste of their own medicine. This sums it up for me. Of course it doesn’t make Teresa look good for doing that, but I doubt she can comprehend that. It was a huge ‘Fuck you’ to Kathy ‘soft voice’, and everyone got the message.”

“Horrible Things (seen or mentioned on the show) that the Gorgas, Wakiles, Manzos and Lauritas have done to Teresa:

  • Melissa betrayed Teresa and contacted Danielle to give her info to use as ammunition against Teresa.
  • Caroline and Jacqueline both betrayed Teresa when they continued to be friends with Melissa even after she betrayed Teresa.
  • Joe Gorga called Teresa “garbage” at his son’s christening.
  • Behind Teresa’s back, they all (including their husbands and the grown Manzo kids) have talked shit and ridiculed Teresa’s business, her bankruptcy, her kids, her husband, her marriage, how she talks, and her intelligence.

“Horrible Things (seen or mentioned on the show) that Teresa has done to the Gorgas, Wakiles, Manzos and Lauritas:

  • She was referencing Christopher when she mentioned in her cookbook that she doesn’t want her daughters to be strippers at a car wash.
  • Also in her cookbook, she repeated a joke about Caroline that was originally said when they were both on a talk show.
  • She has talked shit about Melissa being a gold digger and being jealous of her and how badly Kathy used to treat her sister.

“IMO, the rest of the cast seems unjustified in their seething hatred of Teresa. Because unless I’m forgetting something, what exactly has Teresa done to them that’s worse than what they’ve done to her?”

Tabloids reported in November 2013 that in addition to the return of Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for RHONJ season 6, three new wives, Amber Marchese and twin sisters Teresa and Nicole Napolitano, are being added. On November 1, 2013, Teresa told the Bradenton Herald that “we have four new people, and going forward I think it’s going to be really good” – she must be counting Dina as the fourth new cast member.

The Bradenton Herald also reported on November 1st that “the next season starts taping in a few weeks.” However, a source told Radar Online on November 12th that production was to begin taping at Dina Manzo’s Project Ladybug event, “Goddess Night Out” but the “team couldn’t get everything in place in time so they pushed back the first filming date” – all the women ( Dina, Teresa, Melissa and Kathy) – were present (photo above) “but the cameras weren’t following them.”

When FauxRealityEnt tweeted that “season 6 starts filming on November 11 at Dina Manzo’s sold out Project Ladybug annual party,” Dina questioned her source and responded that even she didn’t have confirmation of that (see tweets below) – so clearly the event was not taped for season 6.

Dina on S6

Back on July 31, 2013, two days after the federal indictment for money fraud was handed down against the Giudices, the New York Daily News reported that “thanks to federal fraud indictments, Bravo executives now are debating the fate of The Real Housewives of New Jersey:”

In the wake of their federal fraud indictments, Bravo executives are debating the future of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” on which Teresa is the fiercest of the fraus, sources told the Daily News.

The show about the lavish lifestyles of five Garden State gals is reality TV king Andy Cohen’s baby and has been a ratings hit. But the show has become a headache for Bravo in light of the recent flurry of bad publicity about the Giudices.

“Nobody wants to see their talent in this kind of a situation,” a network source told The News.

Word that the Jersey housewives might have a target on their backs came a day after Joe and his parents engaged in boorish behavior before and after he and Teresa made their first appearance in Newark Federal Court. Joe slapped a news camera out of the way, his parents swore at reporters, and his dad, Frank, capped it all by mooning the shutterbugs.

Teresa is in denial about the charges, which could send her and her husband to prison for 50 years, sources said.

“Teresa thinks people are coming after her because she is famous,” one source said. “She honestly thinks she has done nothing wrong.”

Teresa is letting Joe direct their defense strategy, sources said.

“She is old-fashioned and thinks her husband knows best,” a source said.

While Joe supported the family for years running everything from a stucco company to a pizzeria, Teresa now brings home the bacon. The News reported Wednesday she gets paid $33,000 an episode and makes thousands more promoting her cookbooks and a specialty food line called Skinny Italian.

The New York Daily News also reported that, prior to the indictment, the Giudices were pitching their own spinoff to Bravo but “the network wasn’t interested” (this contradicts the story Teresa’s good friend, Heather Maclean, put out on twitter):

Teresa has, in recent months, been pitching her own spinoff show to Bravo honchos, sources said.

“They are not interested,” said an insider. “Bravo only spins off happy situations — marriages, baby news. Not prison.”

There was no official comment from Bravo.

In addition, the New York Daily News reported that the Giudices wanted to operate a ‘cupcake cafe’ near their home:

Recently, Teresa was hoping to give her show a sweet plot twist before things went sour with the feds. Just days before she and Joe were indicted, they were scouting locations for a “cupcake cafe,” sources said.

Teresa saw the shop generating new plot lines for her Bravo show along the lines of “2 Broke Girls.” That CBS sitcom is about two Williamsburg, Brooklyn, waitresses — one formerly rich, the other always poor — who scrape up enough dough to open a cupcake shop that quickly goes bust.

The Giudices had zeroed in on a restaurant for lease located in a strip mall just a mile from their tacky $1.7 million mansion in Montville Township, N.J., the sources said. Last week, Teresa came by herself to scope out the site, they said.

Alas, there is already a bakery that sells cupcakes and other treats in the strip mall, along with a salon, barber shop and a deli.

Teresa likely did not come up with the cupcake cafe idea on her own.

Kathy Wakile, her cousin and castmate, has been trying to launch a career as a pastry chef for the past couple of seasons. She is often seen creating desserts for parties and pop-up shops on the show. And she just inked a cookbook deal.

That Teresa would filch an idea from a castmate will come as no surprise to regular “Housewives” watchers.

Teresa frequently feuds with sister-in-law and castmate Melissa Gorga. But Gorga noted on the show that after she wrote a self-help book about keeping a “hot and happy marriage,” Teresa began speaking at conventions about having a happy and healthy marriage.

Jon Fellgraff, an architect who claims Joe still owes him $7,000 for work he did, said it’s a marriage made in hell. He told The Daily Mail that Joe treated Teresa like a “lowly housewife” before she got rich. “He was the boss,” he said. “She would try to speak and he would put her down.”

will and the marcos

Will Love (pictured above), who associated with the cast in the past, responded to the New York Daily News story about the cupcake cafe, asserting that Kathy’s dessert cookbook versus Teresa’s dessert shop (or product line) will be a storyline for season 6:

Will 1

The theory that a rift between Teresa and Kathy will be a season 6 storyline holds weight when you take into account Melissa’s tweet on October 6, 2013 that “the Melissa and Teresa saga is too much – we were both wrong at times and we are moving on with forgiveness” and the fact that the Gorga/Giudice feud for the past three seasons has run its course:

Melissa Gorga ‏@melissagorga 6 Oct
Truth be told! The M & T saga is too much. We were both wrong at times & we are moving on with forgiveness. We are family. Xo

Recent tweets from Teresa’s good friend and co-writer of her cookbooks, Heather Maclean, also gives credence to the rift being a storyline:

Dear @Bravotv we love seeing Teresa & Jacqueline together. Let us see them go up against new people. We’ll never want to watch Melissa. Ever

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean 1 Oct
@Rainbow_Cash_ It’s so hard to watch “family” try to hurt each other. I wish RHONJ would have no family members at all. Just friends.

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean 1 Oct
@Rainbow_Cash_ My ideal cast for next season: Teresa, Jacqueline or Dina (I’m not picky, just one), Danielle, and 2 new, non-related people.

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean 1 Oct
@Rainbow_Cash_ Danielle could come on with all the emails & texts & Melissa would somehow twist it to be all T’s fault. I don’t wanna watch

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean 1 Oct
@Rainbow_Cash_ I just think Melissa has proven over 3 seasons now that she will never step up & own any storyline. She just deflects to T.

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean 7 Oct
@s_bonoan Yes sadly. Kathy is truly a delusional maniac. Or she’s just trying to sacrifice her family again to stay on the show. Disgusting.

Kyle Standish ‏@bananas483 6 Oct
@KathyWakile @HeatherMaclean is more family to T than Joe and Melissa combined.

Construction on the Wakiles’ new home began in Spring 2014.

The Wakiles’ new home was under roof by October 12, 2014.

Jacqueline tweeted on October 12, 2014 that she “filmed in March and then some pick up scenes later on.” Therefore, the cast pretended they were taping during the winter months when Jacqueline and Kathy’s were at Kathy’s new home under construction in Franklin Lakes, NJ (and later when Nicole and Jacqueline were in Kathy’s kitchen in Wayne, NJ), but the scenes were taped much later, as evidenced by the photos above and below, which show that the first floor of the Wakiles’ new home had not been completed as of June 27, 2014 (plus in the footage you could see that the trees were green).

wakile's new home

The photo above from RadarOnline of the Wakile’s new home in Franklin Lakes was taken in February 2015. According to Radar, “the stucco has been poured on the Italian countryside-style home and some stones are in place, but there is still much to be done before Wakile and her brood can call this home.” Neighbor Tom Murro, a friend to the Laurita and Manzo clan, told Radar on February 9, 2015: “The house in Franklin Lakes is enormous but not anywhere near done.” The Wakiles broke ground in late September 2013 (see Kathy’s September 29, 2013 tweet and photo below). More than sixteen months later, their new mansion is far from complete.

wakile's new house

The Wakiles purchased the one acre lot at 755 Barnstable Court, Franklin Lakes, on June 17, 2013 for $675,000.

Lets hope they don’t rip off the landscaper at the new home like they did at their home in Wayne, NJ:

Richard Wakile was taken to small claims court in Passaic County, NJ by Natural Paradise Landscaping over a $2,000 unpaid bill, and the judge ruled against him in court on September 24, 2012.

[Note that the Wakiles joined the cast of RHONJ in September 2010.]

Louie Khalil, the owner of the landscaping company, exclusively told RadarOnline.com about the settlement the judge ordered Richard to pay.

“I don’t care about the money; I’m just glad the judge saw the truth,” Khalil said.

According to Louie, he was hired by the Wakiles to do the landscaping at their house and performed the services for a full year and was never paid, so he cut their service off in October 2011.

“I saw him and told him to pay the bills. We kept asking him to pay. We sent him the bill, and when we would call him, he would just say: ‘Fucking sue me,’ and hang up on me,” he claimed. “He would say to me: ‘Who the fuck do you think you are? I’ll smash your face if I ever hear you say ask me for money again’.”

Louie said Richard was harassing him while he was working on other jobs in the neighborhood, and on June 8, 2012: He “came to my truck while I was working, invading my private space. He took pictures of my license plate. So I called the cops. They went to his house and told him not to take pictures of my license plate.”

Louie told RadarOnline.com it was after this incident that he decided to file the lawsuit, and it worked out in his favor. The judge ruled on September 24, 2012, that Richard was responsible for part of the bill and ordered him to pay $792.34 plus $22 in court fees. Louie said Richard cut them a check for an even $815 right after the judge ordered him to pay.

When Richard was spotted in the courthouse for the first hearing on September 19th by Tom Murro, he was evasive on Twitter about the reason he was there, writing: “I’m so afraid that you’ve exposed me!!! Shaking in my boots or in my beach wear!!!”

Richard actually filed a counter lawsuit against Louie Khalil and the company, which the judge threw out.

Wakiles buy lot

As you can see from the image above, the Wakiles broke ground on their home in September 2013 but the foundation was not laid until May 2014. This was because the house was put on hold while the Wakiles awaited Bravo’s casting decisions for season 6 of RHONJ.

    If Kathy was demoted, how is she getting a major story arc? No one cares about them, so I find this suspect.

    • December 3, 2013 at 11:30 PM

      I don’t think Kathy has been demoted. But if she has been, then it won’t be a story arc but could be a minor storyline. Production has delayed the start of season 6 taping for a reason – maybe they decided to shake things up. I think Richie may have a reduced role, especially since he wasn’t at the season 5 reunion.

            It’s a given that Teresa and TSIL will be back and that Caroline is out.

            It’s all but confirmed (or maybe by now it is confirmed) that Dina will be back.

            So that’s 3 – Teresa, TSIL and Dina, plus from what I am reading (if correct), 2 new HW’s for a total of 5.

            5 is the number they have now. Add Kathy and Jac into the mix and that’s 7 – a couple of HW’s too many. Bravo will want to focus on the Guidice drama this season and that will take up a big chunk of air time. They will also give Dina a chunk of air time because they are thrilled she is back. Add to that the need to give the new HW’s air time to introduce them to the audience.

            That doesn’t leave too much for the others, and I think even TSIL (thankfully) will take a back seat this season.

            I read somewhere and tend to believe that Bravo wanted to keep Rosie because they have it in their heads that she is a “fan favorite” and that Rosie wouldn’t sign without Kathy so the contract was, in essence, split and Kathy was demoted. Jac, I think, is gone.

      • December 4, 2013 at 1:22 AM

        Fame , I think your blog caused a delay in production, when you blogged that TSIL spelled Teresa’s father name wrong in her book and your blog posting that legal document showing that TSIL and TB knew Monica Chacon since 2005.Notice that TSIL and TB went to Jamaica for Thanksgiving, instead of spending Thanksgiving with TB parents and Teresa’s kids. TSIL book tour was cut short after your blog exposed the grammar errors and the forcing yourself on your mate advise.TSIL did a book signing at an Exxon café ,where you go inside to pay for the gas pump to be turned on.Television appearances stop, except for that thirsty Bethenny show .I think TSIL will not be back,I have a feeling,especially when Rosie was ask to host the VMA’s instead of TSIL.

    I don’t think that Kathy was demoted. If she was demoted then she would not get a major story arc.

    The time has come to say goodbye…:-( I will miss you all. Thank you Fame and all you wonderful people. I pray you all have a full and JOY-filled life! I am going through a very rough time right now and God is leading me to spend my time working on making some big changes in my life and helping others more than I have been . As hard times roll in I WILL count my blessings and keep my chin up. It is time for me to step away from Reality TV, I wish Teresa and Joe and most of all the kids the very best. I do think they have a price to pay (not the kids) for their crimes-still not sure what Teresa knew. I have loved hearing all your great stories-you will be in my prayers and heart.

        Ana-Capri –

        nsr1076 has beautifully and poignantly stated what I would wish to say to you. The FW fame-ily continues to see me through one of the darkest times of my life. I recently shared here a poem I read often to help me through difficult days but for you I will post it again. I have hope from the tone of your comment that you will continue to think positively and you will come through whatever challenges you are facing unscathed and all the stronger.

        THE OAK TREE
        by Johnny Ray Ryder Jr.

        A mighty wind blew night and day.
        It stole the Oak Tree’s leaves away.
        Then snapped its boughs
        and pulled its bark
        until the Oak was tired and stark.

        But still the Oak Tree held its ground
        while other trees fell all around.
        The weary wind gave up and spoke,
        “How can you still be standing Oak?”

        The Oak Tree said, I know that you
        can break each branch of mine in two,
        carry every leaf away,
        shake my limbs and make me sway.

        But I have roots stretched in the earth,
        growing stronger since my birth.
        You’ll never touch them, for you see
        they are the deepest part of me.

        Until today, I wasn’t sure
        of just how much I could endure.
        But now I’ve found with thanks to you,
        I’m stronger than I ever knew.

        And, of course, this poem always give me strength and resolve – May God bless you and keep you safe in your journey, Ana-Capri:


        One night I dreamed a dream.
        As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
        Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
        For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
        One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

        After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
        I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
        I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
        especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
        there was only one set of footprints.

        This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
        “Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
        You’d walk with me all the way.
        But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
        there was only one set of footprints.
        I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

        He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
        Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
        When you saw only one set of footprints,
        It was then that I carried you.”

        • December 9, 2013 at 9:10 AM

          Thanks Jeannie, The Footprints in the sand poem never fails to lift a weary heart. I remember the first person to share that poem with me was my dear Aunt Beda. She would sing a song called “Through it all” and I always admired her strength. For the longest time she kept a heart I made for her, on her front door.

          I was catching up on Once Upon a Time, and I was reminded that I don’t want self defeating thoughts to ruin my Christmas. I need to stop allowing negative thoughts to steal my joy.

As hard times roll in, I’d like to share one of my scripture favorites: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.” [Proverbs 3:5-7, King James Version]

    • December 6, 2013 at 11:58 PM

      Hi Ana I had to do the same. I have enjoyed your comments and dialogue. I am a huge Jon Bon Jovi fan and once he said via interview that he used to hate crossroads but then realized that once he went through them he came out stronger. For me taking a step back from all websites and hanging with my family, trying my hardest to hand over everything to God , listening to Joel Osteen blake Shelton Montgomery Gentry and of course Bon Jovi things are not feeling as pressured. I missed the Fame-ly( because you all give strength) I will keep y o u in my prayers. Everything will work out how it’s supposed to. Remember you deserve great things

    For some reason my posts are not posting I’ll try again.

    If the storyline is going to be Katfish against Teresa this is going to be useless. Katfish will never confront Teresa and if she does she’ll only say something that she knows will make Teresa go off on her and then she can pop her eyes and say “she’s cuckoo cuckoo.” Then she will spend all her useless camera time continuing to pop those eyes while she talks behind Teresa’s back like always.

      Can they not just ply nice in the sandbox? I would love to see family dinners with tee and kat cooking. Bottom line is kat has her piece of the pie.

  7. December 4, 2013 at 8:50 AM

    I agree with Fame – I think Kathy will be back – remember last season all the rumors swirling that Jacs had been “fired” and we all saw how “true” that was.

    I have always thought Kathy was one of those people you have to be particularly careful with – a classic “wolf in sheep’s clothing”. She works real hard on her “sweet” persona but the real Kathy came out at last year’s Reunion and there are huge cracks in her facade.

    I believe Teresa that Kathy never accepted Rosie’s sexuality and just used her as an “in” with Bravo – she knew they would love to use Rosie as a storyline.

    Rosie – she is emotionally stunted – I believe her heart can be in the right place – I really do – but she is easily manipulated. Kathy knows her sister’s weaknesses, what buttons to push to unleash her terrible temper (which I believe runs in the Gorga side of the family), and the fact Rosie can be a thug. Kathy uses that to her advantage – this way she can her behind the scenes machinations and treachery and her own passive-aggressive behavior, trying to insure her “brand” as an “old-school, family loving matriarch whose passion is cooking.”

    For me – she will always come across as a manipulative, deceitful traitor who craves more and more pie and will do whatever she can and is capable to feed her hunger for fame. That statement on the View has always stayed with me and clinched my opinion of her.

    As for her disgusting POS of a husband – how Bravo thinks he is “entertaining” is beyond my comprehension. Rich Wakile brings nothing – absolutely nothing – of value to the table. He is a VILE human being, plain and simple.

      December 4, 2013 at 11:25 AM

      Excellent synopsis, Jeannie. I agree with every point you made, and said it much more succinctly than I could have posted. Kathy is a dangerous character in my book.

    • GPM
      December 4, 2013 at 1:43 PM

      We’ve all seen Teresa really grow and come into her own from Season 1 to the present. I have hope for Rosie!

      I like Rosie when she’s being Rosie but I don’t like it when she’s being manipulated by Bravo producers, propagandized by TB and TSIL, or suffering from misplaced loyalty to Katfish.

      The RHONJ seems to really bring out and showcase the cast’s weaknesses and flaws — and here I’m not speaking of Rosie’s sexuality but rather her lack of confidence — but you can still sense the ones who have good hearts and you can’t help but root for them.

    • Miami53
      December 4, 2013 at 2:50 PM

      Jeannie, I agree with everything you said about Kathy. I believe what happened was that Tre’s mom knew Kathy was having issues with the jerk she is married too and maybe said to Tre, I think they will get a divorce and Tre just went with it. Sometimes, myself included, don’t explain ourselves well so when Tre said at the re-union “my father was there for you more than your father….I cannot believe how a niece could say what she did on national tv. She certainly showed her true character!!! But to be honest…she showed it even earlier in life when she didn’t even ask her only cousin to be a bridesmaid….was she afraid that Tre would have out shined her.

    • LifeIsGood
      December 4, 2013 at 5:02 PM

      I agree with you about Kathy and Richie, Jeannie. I also agree with you to a point about Rosie. I think she has the potential to be a good person, and that her heart is mostly in the right place. But if that potential is not matched with a sincere desire to change, it is useless.

      I can’t help but think of that radio interview she did – she went on about how Teresa was the cause of all of Joe’s problems. The Bravo cameras were not there – no producers were telling her what to say – no bad editing – they were her words. I do believe that she was manipulated, and that if she didn’t have Kathy and Richie chirping in her ear, she may not have thrown her cousin under the bus. But regardless of why she said it (and all of the other terrible things she has spewed) the bottom line is that she said it. I could be wrong, but I’ve never heard her express remorse for that interview, so IMO, she has to own it.

      At this point, Rosie has had the chance to view herself on television. If she can look at her drunken, nasty rampages and not make an effort to tone it down, then maybe that is her true character. I believe that she came on the show initially to help her sister – but I also think that it has gone to her head.

      On a more important topic…

      I hope that you are keeping well during this holiday season. The “firsts” can be very hard. I lost several members of my family (3 on the same day) a few weeks before Thanksgiving. For the first few years, it was nearly impossible for me to enjoy the holidays, but my kids were small at the time so I used the “fake it until you make it” strategy for their sake. Eventually, I was able to stop seeing what (and who) was missing on the holidays, and I began celebrating those that were there. It takes time to get there, so I hope that you are patient with yourself.

      Take care!

        Life is Good – I am so sorry you have your own loss – I understand as I also have other anniversaries of close, family loved ones who passed this time of year in the past. I have good days and not so good days – and as I know you understand, it can get pretty intense. I absolutely get the “fake it till you make it” strategy. I am just taking one day at a time and looking towards the new year as a time where I can find “me” again.

        I am doing okay and I really make an effort to do something every day to make myself smile and while I certainly am having my moments, these efforts do help! Yesterday, I took the boys to see Disney’s new movie “Frozen”. The boys’ take – “girly but really good!” Tonight, I took a drive a few blocks over to see a wonderful, wonderful outdoor display of lights!! It was glorious!!!

        Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and your kindness, LIG. It continues to amaze me how people I don’t “know” make me feel understood and comforted.

    December 4, 2013 at 9:08 AM

    I agree with Fame. I think Kathy will be back, but I have a feeling the producers will phase out the Wakilies and the Gorgas. They communicated with friends and business partners who in turn spoke to Monica Chacon. This was a malicious calculating move on their part to destroy their blood so they can be the stars of the show. Bravo set the stage for these families and they failed to win the support of the public; as a result, Bravo has two housewives that will never achieve the level on success as the star of the show. The star,Teresa Guidice could be facing jail time and Bravo is left a show in ruins. Bravo has itself to blame.

    “Teresa frequently feuds with sister-in-law and castmate Melissa Gorga. But Gorga noted on the show that after she wrote a self-help book about keeping a “hot and happy marriage,” Teresa began speaking at conventions about having a happy and healthy marriage.”

    This was written in the NYT daily press article, above. The same article that slammed Teresa and Juicy! If that newspaper believe’s anything that TSIL say’s then I’d have to question many other article’s they have written about other people! I remember Tre was pretty vocal about expressing her and Juicy’s ”private” love life in earlier season’s, so whose the copycat? I read a blog on ”allabouttrh” yesterday, or the day before, about TSIL’s reason for spending Thanksgiving in Jamaica. She just HAD to reveal her true feelings to NYT daily press (coincidence?)! Here’s a link:


    I hope TSIL and TB’s role’s on RHONJ are limited. I do hope that they are faded out, like Taylor Armstrong’s was in RHOBH.

    I did have a feeling Kathy wasn’t demoted because of her book deal. I had my finger’s crossed, though! I think the Wakile’s have let their celebrity go to their heads in a bad way. The way Richie plays into people insulting him shows that he’s not made out to be on a TV show that promotes drama. It’s kind of ironic that last season Kathy’s opening line was, “If you can’t take the heat…” I personally think Bravo give’s tagline’s to HW as a joke on them! Right now, I do think that the Wakile’s are undeserving of the platform that Bravo has given them. Do they promote anything, beside’s Rosie’s love life and Kathy’s baking talent? I was kind of happy that the Wakile’s were sweating their future on Bravo. I hope it knocked back into to ”reality” for a while!

    I guess I give the cast too much credit in thinking that they must know not to depend on the Bravo checks for the following season. Someone, a production company maybe, had to have been feeding the Wakile’s lies about how popular and loved they are! I can’t believe they bought a lot in Franklin Lakes and are planning on building a house! I thought they knew better?

    I sometime’s get bored and read some of their twitter pages. The Wakile’s seem to be traveling an awful lot. A part of me thinks it might be Kathy’s passive-aggressive way at trying to make Tre jealous of her! You know, like she’s saying, “I can travel to other states and even leave the country, unlike my cousin!”

    Last season the Gorga’s made themselves look like total fools! Maybe this season it’s the Wakile’s turn?

      • December 5, 2013 at 9:43 AM

        Hi, Black Enga! I just read on allabouttrh.com that season 6 started filming and Kathy was, indeed, demoted! I hope she is and I know that may sound mean in this economy. I’m sure a bakery will hire her or maybe she can open up her own bakery? Kathy condoning Richie’s insulting words toward her cousin and the way he treats women is just disgusting. If the email Fame received is true and Richie was pissed about his wife being demoted because he did everything production asked of him, regarding Tre, then good for him!

        Also, the article said that TSIL knows viwer’s are sick of her fighting with Tre and that she took a lot of heat for the way she behaved last season. I think it’s ”a little too little a little too late” to salvage her image now. At least for me because I tend to distrust hypocritical liar’s who pick on kid’s. When I see article’s of her and TB I tend to crinkle my nose, like I just got a whiff of dog doodoo!

        • December 5, 2013 at 3:10 PM

          Based on the fact that AllAboutTRH has a contest give-away of Milania hair care products and Heather Maclean gave an exclusive interview to Roxanne in June 2013, I’d say their source is Teresa’s camp.

          Hello ceeeseee, that is what’s so weird about this whole feud between her and Teresa, she is a hair stylist by trade but every time Teresa promotes anything to do with food she acts if though it’s a direct dig at her and her brand. I feel like I’m giving her credit by even saying “brand”.

          She would have done better being her ally rather than being her enemy IMO. They could to have used their love for cooking as their bond. Even Melissa saw the chemistry between them when they were cooking together while she was getting plastered. But Bravo cant have that, family unity, oh no, better for them to be at each others throats, now that’s entertainment.

          I saw right through her and Melissa the day of the christening. I couldn’t come on a reality show to bash my family for any amount of money. Which is very telling when it comes to Andy. Why didn’t he bring in some of the other cast’s family members? I’m quite sure they have people in their families that they don’t get along with either.

          • December 7, 2013 at 12:11 AM

            Hi Black Enga! I could actually understand if Kathy and Jaw were upset about Milania hair care sine that’s there former livelihood but not the cooking thing. T is just Capitalizing like Rachel Ray and Sandra Lee did. Capitalize on a hobby that they were good at. I hope you are well!

              Jennacheryl, when I first got married I couldn’t boil egg’s but you learn and you grow with experience. My idol was Julia Child. But Teresa learned how to cook from a traditional Italian mom, so I know that she knows what she is doing. Do you remember Melissa scarfing down that food when they had dinner together? Believe me, she knows whats good. I love watching Teresa cook, I really think she could hold her own with a cooking show, Kathy?…… Eh, not so much.

    I’m wondering when the official announcement of the new RHONJ cast members will be forthcoming?

    In a certain sense, it would not be surprising if Bravo does choose those trashy twins — Bravo is all for perpetuating negative stereotypes. They want the rest of the country to think that all women in NJ (including me) are that disgustingly materialistic, classless, animalistic and tacky.

    Does anyone else feel at times that we’ve been had by a family? It’s getting so ridiculous this war against the Guidices. I have to ask are they all in on it? Thick as Thieves? If Teresa is signing up to fight with Kathy then she’s on her own in my house. I’ve said it many times… I just want to see what life is like on the other side of the fence, I’ll quite happily get a Bold and The Beautiful addiction when and if I want to watch families at war, jeez I’ll even watch Dallas re-runs if the need is that great.

    Teresa, sweetheart, I have an inkling that you read here, please please please either stop it from happening or just avoid Katfish. Seriously, highroad might be a quite one but the viewing public is done done done. We can see their behaviours, you don’t need to justify it to the audience.

    How can they go from best friends, adoring siblings to hate? I’m calling BS on the whole catastrophe. It’s malarkey!

      Sackem, my fear is that sneaky Bravo is going to use tactics and/or edit Dina and Teresa to fight which would be a threefold win for them.1, it would stop the family fighting that we all hate. 2, it would make Teresa look like the villain- again(proving Bravo right). And 3, it would make the Manzo/Laurita’s position against Teresa look right and perhaps boost their show’s ratings…

      Obviously Bravo thrives on moral paradox and they know that viewers are dropping (I personally have not watched Bravo since the reunion and I am seriously going to do my best to not support this next installment…I think I may take the road of others and just tune in to Fame to find out what is going on?) but to my point, I think it is great to add some new faces and people we are not invested in, but to bring Dina back does not make me comfortable knowing what production is capable of. Truth be told, I am kind of disappointed in Dina bc I really thought she was above all of this.

      I think Andy was quoted saying that in one installment of the series that a HW was cast as the villain and fought it but lost the battle and realized she had no choice. My sense is that was Teresa and at this point, aside from downsizing-which I think she 100% should, how else is she going to survive financially?

        I forgot to add, seeing Dina and Messy holding hands in the pic bothers me. I cannot watch a season of Dina and Kathy or Dina and Messy filming together-pretend or not, because I think that out of respect, there are just some things you do not do. The Gorgas and Wakiles crossed the line joining the show the way they did and then taking the positions they did with the cast mates. I can see it coming down the pike and I just can’t with this anymore…I agree it Teresa might be in the know but my POV is had the Gorga/Wakile’s not joined, there would not be these issues to have.

            This is the acct I was forced to make when FW shut down during that scary week in Sept( that was intense!! lol ). In order to search in Word Press blogs, as you know, you need an acct w the whole shebang!! I was already Jack Hole (but cannot remember the connecting email address) so I had to make a version of my great screen name…oy!!

    I decided to stop watching because the Whorgas have ruined it. Looks like I made the right decision!

    • December 6, 2013 at 3:52 PM

      I stopped watching also. It was getting so dark last season I would actually be angry after watching each episode. This past season, I stopped watching mid-season, as the editing was so horrible. Bravo certainly cut off their nose to spite their face. In my opinion the entire housewife franchise is going down the drain quickly.

    From what I read most people don’t like Kathy, Theresa supposedly has a big fan base . So this might make Kathy more hated than Melissa. If I was Kathy I wouldn’t go there no matter how much money you paid me. It’s obvious these people care more about money than family.

  16. December 4, 2013 at 10:56 PM

    I love it, ppl don’t know who Fame is but still send dirt on the family.

    Melissa tweeting that she has been wrong does not make up for the bullshit she caused. I hope this is all worth it Melissa.

    Let’s see:
    3 singles you released — BOMBED!
    An “Advice Book” filled with contradictions FROM you — BOMBED!

    Katty came out with:
    A Drink — BOMBED (I heard it taste like cough syrup w/ sugar!)
    Canoli’s I mean seriously? This is your first item that you decide to sell? Of all fricking things that requires Dry Ice and makes it expensive… I digress.
    Dessert Book – you just went to Italy to get “inspiration”? Didn’t you already have a treasure trove of desserts? Kathy, people have to actually like you to buy your book. Look at Caroline Manzo, she was convinced she had the answers to everything and people loved her. This just shows, you can buy all the fake followers and fake Instagram likes all you want, but when you come out with a product — if people like you they will buy it.

    Rich is a disgusting pig.

        Okay Guys Stop! You have me blushing.
        It’s funny, ppl ask me how can I read a blog like this(?)..
        It’s a lot like when Lynn (R.I.P. Lynn) had; “I Hate Jill Zarin” blog. Jill Zarin is a neurotic twit that draws the wrong attention to herself. But if you actually read the blog, there were intelligent ppl (as there are intelligent ppl here) it wasn’t a “hate” blog as this blog is not. This blog just happens to point out inconvenient truths about the Gorgas, Katty & Rich and Manzo’s. Fame has even done fair reporting when it comes to the trial with Teresa.

        It makes me sick that Melissa and Katty (yes, KATTY!) went on the show knowing they had issues with Teresa up to “bring her down” and sing “Family is everything” in the same tune. I hate when people ask me, “How do you know it was Melissa on the uncommonground blog” Hello? Melissa’s dumb sister signed her name when no one knew her (she did it on other blogs as well) etc.
        Also, you could tell which comments were Wacko Jacko’s. The ones that capitalize RANDOM words and are long posts that don’t really say anything.
        I am so off track..
        Anyhow, if my family or friends ever did this to me, I would hope that a “Fame” would emerge and come of my defense.
        I have not been commenting much on blogs, I am working on a new site, it will focus on the painfully obvious “Produced/Scripted Reality Tv”
        – I hope you all visit me. No, I’m not pimping, (LOL!) I didn’t give out the URL (yet.. LOL) Plus I have $100 google ads credit. I would email Fame and ask her to “pimp” it and pay her, LOL! I have Fame on my blog roll b/c she rocks. I love this blog.
        Thanks for the feed back on my comment. I know my comment here is scattered. I can never stay on track, LOL!

          Hi Miss Amia, aka Fabulous!! TSIL = Teresa’s Sister-In-Law (Melissa); TB = Teresa’s Brother (Joe Gorga). I like your name for Katty but she can also be referred to as TC = Teresa’s Cousin. The reason being is that if it weren’t for Teresa, none of their names would be known to anyone. Their own recognition and “piece of pie” all stems from their association with Teresa so it is felt that none of them really deserve to be recognized other than what they are – relatives of Teresa Giudice, given they themselves don’t recognize just how much they owe her – that would be everything.

          Good luck with your new blog. 🙂

      If she would have had a dessert book ready to go when she first joined the show, with the traditional recipe and a lighter recipe for that same dessert, I may have purchased her book. Now, unfortunately, I really dislike who she is on the show, so I would never purchase anything she peddles.

        December 8, 2013 at 2:23 PM

        My thoughts exactly, Momajackie. I saw Kathy for who she really was when she showed up at Caroline’s to apologize to her after the “unattended” debacle. She’s the biggest snake on that show.

        Perhaps I could have overlooked her coming on the show behind T’s back if she supported T and kept Richie hidden under the stairs where he belongs. There are very few people that have no redeeming qualities whatsoever, and Richie is one of them.

    Is it really a story arc when you’ve got Teresa’s blissfully going about her business while Katfish is sniping at her and griping about it behind her back?

    “It’s a big pie and there’s plenty for all.” Surely there’s enough bakery business to go around?!?

    It’s difficult to imagine anyone would think that listening to Katfish whine “She took my idea!” is at all entertaining!

    • December 6, 2013 at 11:35 PM

      I agree with you GPM, I don’t think Kathy’s storyline would be all that interesting if it has to do with stealing idea’s! I think it’s a way for Kathy to start blaming Tre if her book should bomb.

    Laram’s recent reference to Enron — dear Laram, I’m so sorry you were invested with that crew; please know that there are some among us who still revile the self-proclaimed “smartest guys in the room” and who remember well “all the money you guys stole from those poor grandmothers in California” as well as the innocent investors who suffered as a result — and Fame’s great posts recently regarding Teresa’s legal troubles have got me to thinking.

    Prosecutors estimated the size of the Madoff fraud to be $64.8 billion. Madoff’s firm was the sixth-largest market maker on Wall Street in 2008 and J.P. Morgan (recently fined $13 billion over mortgage-backed securities sold ahead of the 2008 financial crisis and another $108 million relative to its manipulation of the Japanese benchmark rate) was Madoff’s banker.

    Yet no one at J.P. Morgan has ever been charged with any crime, either in connection with its involvement with Madoff, its involvement in the mortgage scandal that brought the world to its respective financial knees, or its involvement with the LIBOR scandal.

    Bernie Madoff’s wife Ruth earned her bachelor’s degree at Queens College. She was employed at the stock market in Manhattan before working as Madoff’s bookkeeper and, although she was never an employee of BLMIS, Ruth Madoff kept the books for the advisory business, the market-making business and Madoff’s personal wealth. Employees in Madoff’s London office stated that “Ruthie runs the all books” and millions of dollars belonging to BLMIS and its customers found its way into her personal accounts and investments.

    Two weeks before Madoff, his empire crumbling, confessed his fraud to his sons, Ruth Madoff withdrew $5.5 million from her brokerage account at Cohmad, a feeder fund which had an office in Madoff’s headquarters and was part-owned by him. Then on December 10, 2008 — the very day of Madoff’s confession to his sons — Ruth withdrew an additional $10 million from the same fund. In November of 2008 Ruth Madoff had also received $2 million from her husband’s London office,

    Yet Ruth Madoff has similarly not been charged with any crime and has reputedly not even been questioned by prosecutors.

    Instead, the U.S. Attorney is spending its time — and taxpayers’ money — going after Teresa Guidice.

    Teresa Giudice, who has an Associates degree in Fashion Merchandising and who worked at Macy’s prior to her marriage.

    Teresa Giudice, whose husband routinely forged her name and allowed others to do so as well, apparently going so far as to forge her name on a power of attorney in order to keep his dealings from her.

    Teresa Giudice, whose husband’s employees testified under oath had nothing to do with his business.

    Teresa Giudice, whose husband treated her “like a lowly housewife” according to Giudice architect Jon Fellgraff, who went on to say “He was the boss . . . She would try to speak and he would put her down.”

    Teresa Giudice, who refers to Robert Louis Stevenson’s great work as “Hekyll and Jyde,” for pity’s sake!



    Please forgive the rant. It just seems to me to be so ridiculously wasteful, so horribly inefficient, so patently unjust and so breathtakingly cruel for the U.S. Attorney’s Office to single out this woman for criminal punishment, a woman whose charming and charismatic husband — who seems to have never met a law he didn’t think he could break — clearly led their entire family into this morass and who already faces the Herculean task of picking up the pieces of her family’s fractured future, that it makes me livid.

    • December 5, 2013 at 2:35 PM

    • black enga
      December 5, 2013 at 4:00 PM

      Another great post GMP, thank you and no forgiveness needed, I love to read rants on this site,lol.
      I have one of my own to add. My overwhelmingly despise for men using and belittling women.
      It is no secret here that I really despise Andy Cohen. Does he and Bravo really think people will watch another season of Teresa at war with one of her family members only to be labeled the guilty party in the season finale of the show? I for one am not amused with the idea, not that I would be watching anyway. I’m so tired of them thinking that they know what we want to see or that this would somehow be the best plot line to gain back it’s lost viewers.
      Andy is so out of touch with the reality when it comes to this show. His blind hatred of Teresa and making her suffer is going to be his own downfall. Remember the saying about digging a hole for your enemy…….. I believe this man really thinks he is the Andy Warhol of today and that these women are his factory girls that he pits against each other for his personal sick and twisted enjoyment. Here is a perfect example of how others feed his distorted ego.
      He runs around using excuses for his behavior like these.
      “In the case of ‘The Housewives,’ I call the ‘Housewives’ sociology of the rich. I think it’s just fun to watch. It’s guilt-free gossiping that you can have. It’s like the modern-day soap opera, in my mind.”
      To use the word sociology in his statement bothers me. He has also stated in the past that he loves sociology. I got this from Wikipedia.
      Sociology is the study of human social behavior and its origins, development, organizations, and institutions.[1] It is a social science which uses various methods of empirical investigation[2] and critical analysis[3] to develop a body of knowledge about human social actions, social structure and functions. A goal for many sociologists is to conduct research which may be applied directly to social policy and welfare, while others focus primarily on refining the theoretical understanding of social processes. Subject matter ranges from the micro level of individual agency and interaction to the macro level of systems and the social structure.[4]
      Andy Cohen is a handler, a pimp if you will of this stable of women that have made him and Bravo millions. These women are not rich or effluent members of society. Most are social deviants as is he. He is someone who became a household name because he has prospered of the backs of women. Wow, nice job Andy, you want a cookie? You are no better than the garbage you promote.
      Bravo and Andy have made me feel like a lab rat in some weird experiment on social behavior. They have taken a channel that was best known for the Arts and Entertainment and turned into a cesspool driven by money, greed, and inflated egos. This poor excuse for a human being has the nerve to say “I love human nature and sociology” only adds insult to injury.
      Why can’t reality shows just be reality shows? Why do they have to be tweaked, edited, and dramatized to make people watch? Instead they promote reality shows that are fake reality. I used to love Top Chef, Project runway and RHWONJ before I found out they were scripted, Yeah I was naive and believed it was real, a rude awakening is an understatement.
      I’m just the average American who comes home from work and turns on the TV hoping to be entertained and sometimes to see how the other half (1%) lives, not to be manipulated and lied to. They are not the other half, they are just like you and me, trying to earn a living. They are just willing to sell their souls to do it by pretending to be something that they are not.
      I can’t stand you Andy Cohen which is why (God forgive me) I received such personal enjoyment from reading this.
      I hope the rumors are true about you and him and he’s marring his beard so that you will be secretly heartbroken and humiliated. I can visualize you sitting by yourself in the living room crying into that pint of Ben and Jerry’s while you look longingly through your photo album of the pictures you took with him while vacationing in the Hampton’s.
      Your 15 minutes are almost up, tick tock, tick tock.
      In the words of your (I think) idol Andy Warhol, “In the future, everybody will be world famous for 15 minutes.” Ironic, isn’t it.

        Well said. What’s really sick about it is the pimp Andy’s goal is to get as many Johns as possible to profit from his contract slaves. Andy’s really no different than a promoter who owns a bunch of gladiators. He doesn’t care if the gladiators get hurt or killed because either way he profits. And, there’s always more to fill the voids left by those he uses up or exits.

          I just get so angry when I think about what this woman must be going through. And I vehemently believe that Andy Cohen had a hand and starting this whole investigation. I believe he knew about most of the cast’s financial troubles when they joined the show. I think that is why Teresa struggled with her decision to even come on so long. She should have listened to that little voice telling her not to but she probably thought she could trust him. Oh what a dumb dumb chicken little…….

          Yeah they all are fame whores (dazzled by the light) and they all have financial problems. The burning question in my mind is why she alone was singled out. I bet Andy knows why.

    Dina and Caroline Manzo—The Feud Is Over: ‘We’re Totally Fine!’
    Wednesday December 4, 2013 1:00 PM EST

    In an exclusive interview with In Touch, Dina reveals she and Caroline are “totally fine,” adding that anger has been replaced by civility, if not warm and fuzzy friendship. “When we see each other, we kiss each other hello. We just don’t hang out for Sunday dinner, that’s all.”

    Now that wombs have been cleaned up, and the sisters are back together, Dina says she recently spent quality time with Caroline and her newly engaged daughter, Lauren. “I will be at Lauren’s wedding,” Dina told In Touch. “If Caroline needed me and called me tomorrow, I would be there. I love my sister. I will always love her.”

    It’s Finally Happening! RHONJ Cameras To Begin Rolling This Week After Production Delays
    Posted on Dec 3, 2013 @ 17:32PM

    Lights, camera, action! The Real Housewives of New Jersey are back in business filming this week and RadarOnline.com has all the exclusive details about what the cameras are planning to capture and what took so long for production to start.

    The Bravo series was originally scheduled to start filming this fall while Teresa Giudice’s legal troubles were heating up, and after the contracts were signed it looked like things would happen, but the timing was delayed.

    “The producers just could not get everything together so quickly,” a source connected to the show told Radar.

    “They wanted to make sure they are able to get all of the women for the Christmas holiday and they want Teresa’s court drama included but they just didn’t move very fast and so production was delayed for a while.”

    Teresa is returning for the next season, along with Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri, and previous cast member Dina Manzo and the new ladies, Nicole and Teresa Napolitano.

    Now Radar has learned that filming will finally start this week.

    “Cameras are going to start rolling and it’s about time,” the source said.

    “First they have to just do the women individually and catch up with what has been going on with them and their families, then they’ll get them together and all of the drama will start.”

      No worries, Black Enga! I didn’t watch a single episode last season. You can easily keep up with what is happening through the blogs and video clips. However…if I begin to read that Kathy and MeHo are finally called out on their BS, I’ll tune in again. But since that will never happen, I doubt I’ll be watching.

    • December 6, 2013 at 11:26 PM

      I said I wasn’t going to watch but ended up watching every episode this past season! My main excuse is that a friend of mine started watching the show with me! After the show was over we would go on our power walks and we would ”discuss” the episode. My friend did a mean TB impersonation, complete with him rubbing his heart and saying, “This heart, hurts!” I have to smile about the first time she did that while we were walking! My stomach hurt afterwards, kind of like I didn 500 sit ups! I guess you could say I found the show somewhat humerous this past season.

    I did leave some mean comments under different names and I would like to apologize to the blog owner. I really never considered facts. This is real life when it comes to Teresa and Melissa. I never looked at it that way, I looked at it as a TV Show and thought you took the show to serious. I was wrong and I hope you can forgive me for my nasty comments. I did not use this email that I am using now, I never use a real email address but I can’t even tell you what nic I used because it was a long time ago.

    Kathy is a disgusting person. She tries to act all high and mighty but she is really a vile, jealous poser with anger issues. She whines about her cousin but spent the entire two years trashing her anytime there was a camera in her ugly face. She is lower middle class who is trying to look rich with her fake lips, plastic surgery and leased cars while they blew Victoria’s college money on things and forced her to go to community college and live at home. She took Melissa’s side in this which makes her a disloyal opportunist. Rosie is a raging drunk who acts like a wild animal but her sexuality makes her a favorite of Andy Cohen. She gives lesbians a bad name.

    I am soooo pissed off that Melissa was rehired. I thought for sure she was finished. Bravo must be selling her out for blow jobs. Sorry for my rant but I will not be watching this trainwreck anymore. They reward these horrible people who destroy families for fame. Teresa should have gotten out a while ago.

      Hi Wilbur ITA, you know what? I actually thought Kathy was so pretty until she opened her mouth.

      To tell a mother she’s not a good mother because her child was not attended (in her book) was not a good look for Kathy, not when you are coming on a show where she worked there first.

      • jackhole2014
        December 13, 2013 at 5:12 PM

        ITA Black and Wilbur!! The reason why Kathy’s passive-aggressive comment never sat well with me or how I knew she was stirring the pot is bc she is saying that to Tre about having to move the baby out of harms way but never says anything to TB about STARTING the whole damn thing!! I mean, WTF??!!! Teresa went over to her brother’s table, whether she was being fake for the cameras or not is irrelevant, she was verbally attacked!! She clearly did not go over to the table to fight and nobody saw it coming–how the hell is that being a bad mom??

        Now, if it were the year before when Teresa did leave her seat to confront Danielle and then consequently chase her (which is again in incident started by TB and TIL more or less) THEN I could see holding her feet to the fire a little… it was the same logic they all uses in Lake Goerge when TB charged Juicy and somehow it was blamed on Teresa??!!!!

        I actually feel bad for Kathy because I cannot imagine she is a woman who does or will ever get respect in her life…

    Wakile's pre construction meeting with Kevin Jonas

    • Jeannie5233
      December 6, 2013 at 8:20 PM

      All that is ever mentioned about the Wakiles’ building a new home when the topic comes up is “Kathy’s kitchen” – what about the rest of the house?! Why would Rich and Joe Jonas, of all people, be pictured together? Joe Jonas has put his own home up for sale in Denville, NJ, purchased a lot close to where his existing house is, and is in the process of building a new one for his wife and the baby they are expecting.

      Could be all very innocent – Joe and Rich could be sharing the same builder/architect or. . . .there is a rumor out there the Wakiles have put building their house on hold; so is this Rich trying to make it look like those plans are his when in fact they could be Joe’s? Once again, I am being cynical, I suppose but I wouldn’t put it past him given what we have seen him pull before.

      • December 6, 2013 at 8:33 PM

        I don’t understand the Jonas link either – you make good points about them possibly having the same builder/architect. I suspect Richie posted the tweet above because in this blog I quoted a source saying (in late October) that their new house was on hold. I was expecting Richie to address the blog at AllAboutTRH that said Kathy has been demoted, but he didn’t tweet anything about that, so perhaps it is true.

    December 7, 2013 at 8:25 AM

    As boring as she is, I would not mind Kathy coming back – minus the conflict with Teresa. The person who disgusts me the most is Richie. It’s one of the reasons I stopped watching to begin with. I find him and Joe Gorga repulsive and can’t even stand to see their faces on my tv screen – I find them that disgusting. It’s almost a visceral reaction.

    As far as Rosie – what I would like to see is Rosie living her life as a gay woman. NOT Rosie going to bars and trying to pick up women with her disgusting family in tow – but Rosie showing us what it’s like to be a gay woman in society. Just let Rosie be Rosie. Let the viewers see that her life as a gay woman is really no different from anyone else’s. And explore the relationship between Kathy and Rosie HONESTLY.

    At the beginning of this season, Kathy made a comment somewhere that RHONJ was going to aid people in understanding gays by showcasing Rosie. What Bravo did instead was exploit Rosie and made her into some kind of circus act for the amusement of the Gorgas and Walkies – and then, to top it off, there was drunk and angry Rosie who turned off the viewing audience.

    The only two people on the show that have ever had a sensitive conversation with Rosie about being gay are: Guess Who? Teresa and Joe Guidice. The others use her as a prop.

    My point is that the way Rosie was used (and she must have gone along with it) did nothing to enhance anyone’s understanding and/or acceptance of what it means to be gay. If a person was prejudiced against gays and saw “drunk/angry/picking up girls Rosie” or “letting her brother in law feel her breast Rosie” I don’t think that would help change their mind about anything. And one more thing – just because a woman is gay, it doesn’t mean she always has to do the “men” things like fishing, playing poker – again, a stereotype that Bravo and Rosie reinforced.

    I think Rosie’s story would be an interesting one, if Bravo would explore it honestly and without reinforcing the stereotypes that still exist about gays.

          December 7, 2013 at 5:49 PM

          IKR, she has to look back and be embarrassed but maybe not. She probably doesn’t even see it that way as with Richie, they don’t notice their own obnoxious behavior. OT, I had a sinister theory going on in my head when they posted those pics of Joe with that other women in the restaurant. Something about the hands made me think of Rosie. Then I thought, OOOOOoo, what if her and Joe are secretly having an affair? Heee hee he, wouldn’t that be some thing. I know it was far fetched but I could so see her sneaking around to met with Joe so everyone wouldn’t know they are still good friends.

          • December 7, 2013 at 9:53 PM

            I had the same thought that Joe and Rosie were meeting. I don’t think it’s an affair….maybe a physiology lesson? Lol

          I agree. Her family does not treat her well. I was reading somewhere that she was agreeing with T during that talk in the backyard about K not supporting her an I remembered that as well. I think she wants her sisters love, like Kathy wanted her dad’s verbalization of his love, Rosie wanted to feel that from her siblings. I kinda think she get most of her love from the Giudice’s.

  34. December 7, 2013 at 8:45 AM

    Off topic but RHONJ news. I was reading ROLies articles and Ashlee/Ashley is going to pose in racy lingerie. The article is Bo-Ring. The comments are scathing about Ashlee/Ashley’s body, face and attitude. I would feel sorry for Ashlee/ Ashley if she didn’t jump on the “Bash Tre & family” wagon. Her little tweets were uncalled for and probably tweeted to get in her mom’s good graces. Now that her mom is off the show and has made up with Tre, where does that leave Ashlee/Ashley? From the comments, it leaves her looking like a plastic clown who is owed no respect because of her disrespectful action’s. Sad.

    Here’s a link to the story:


    P/S- Some of the commenter’s thought Lauren was Ashlee/Ashley!

      • December 8, 2013 at 11:29 AM

        I’d like to point out that while I read the comments yesterday morning I did notice something. The majority of the insults regarding Ashlee/Ashley’s RHONJ day’s were from people upset at her behavior toward her mother, Jaq. So, if Ashlee/Ashley does try to pin her ”hater’s” on Tre’s fans it’s not us. Her ”hater’s” dislike her because of the way she treated her mother.

        • black enga
          December 8, 2013 at 6:07 PM

          I didn’t stay long to read many of the posts but I did notice that. I think Ashlee/Ashley holds a lot of resentment towards her mother for not being there for her when she was younger (spent a lot of time with grandparents), when she married Chris after getting pregnant, Jacqueline probably was to busy trying to present herself as the perfect wife and mother to Caroline, so she might not have had much time for her. Can you imagine the hoops she had to jump through to get along with Caroline. Not that I feel in the least bit sorry for her. She, cough (home wrecker), dug her own grave with that one.

          I don’t think Caroline was very nice to Ashlee when she was growing up either, hence the self esteem issues. She has shone us how highly critical of women she is, look how she treats her own daughter.

          I wish Ashley well, I hope she finds her worth. She can only achieve that by learning to love her self first.

          • December 8, 2013 at 7:59 PM

            Now I do feel bad for Ashlee! Her mother did allow her to get picked on by the Manzo’s. That was hard to watch, even if that was ”staged”. I don’t know why Jaq would allow her daughter to be portrayed in the way she was. It’s like she’s stigamitzed now as the lazy, disrespectful brat who was kicked out of her mom’s house! Now, Ashlee is left with the reputation that was ”created” by Bravo producer’s. She now has to get used to the negative comments spewed her way when she decide’s to model lingerie. I, too, hope Ashlee does find her self worth and start to respect herself a little bit more. When Ashlee starts to insult people on twitter or her blogs, it make’s it hard to have any respect for her. I hope she see’s that and nixes the insults because people are sure eager to insult her.

              December 8, 2013 at 9:38 PM

              ceeeseee, I feel bad for Ashley and Lauren, they are mirrors of their mothers and they are not strong enough to fight them and offer their real opinions (that sometimes they are wrong) about certain situations. Plus they are very dependent on them financially. But I in know way condone their behavior.

              I can see past the nasty remarks they make in their mothers presence or defense by attacking people that their (mothers) are mad at and attacking. You only have to look at their faces when Jacqueline tells Ashley all she has done for her and how ungrateful she is or when Caroline sticks ups for her sons and calls Lauren fat or a bitch. Ashley lashes out by talking back, drinking, partying or getting tattoos. Lauren internalizes it by binge eating.

              These two toxic people are their children’s worst enemy IMO.

    From the NY Daily News…

    “Teresa has, in recent months, been pitching her own spinoff show to Bravo honchos, sources said.
    “They are not interested,” said an insider. “Bravo only spins off happy situations — marriages, baby news. Not prison.”
    There was no official comment from Bravo.”

    Really? “Bravo” and “happy situations” do NOT belong in the same sentence. It makes the entire statement, the source and the insider suspect.

    @ RahRah… your comment:

    “In one paragraph, the person owed the 7K should be on the witness list for the Guidices, his description of their marriage pre-rh actually exonerates Super T IMO.”

    I thought the same exact thing when I read it. Of course it remains to be seen what T’s defense will actually be but this has been suggested and made the most sense to me. Of course, ignorance isn’t a defense so hopefully this just scratches the surface. If Teresa’s signatures were truly forged… that IS a defense. Sadly, it’s probably not that simple but knocking off as many counts as they can will only help… well it will help Teresa anyway… any truth to this will surely make it worse for Joe… but if it’s true, then he deserves anything he has coming to him.

    While I don’t like Kathy, she’s nothing compared to her creepy husband! I cannot STAND that icky perv. Out of all real house husbands everywhere, past and present… he is by FAR the worst. Brooks isn’t even as bad as Richie. EWWWW

    I only watched a few episodes of NJ at the beginning of last season. I always considered myself a pretty hard core RHoAnywhere fan… it speaks volumes that I tuned out… especially NJ which was my favorite. I’m not sure about this season. I may give it a try at the start. I really like Dina and seeing new blood will be interesting. Whether it’s interesting good or interesting bad I’m going to have to wait and watch.

    “Tabloids reported in November 2013 that in addition to the return of Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile for RHONJ season 6, three new wives, Amber Marchese and twin sisters Teresa and Nicole Napolitano, are being added. On November 1, 2013, Teresa told the Bradenton Herald that “we have four new people, and going forward I think it’s going to be really good,” so perhaps there is another new cast member that has not yet been revealed.”

    Isn’t the fourth new person Dina? I thought Dina confirmed without a doubt she was coming back. Eh… I guess we won’t know until we see the intro and who has actual taglines. That’s pretty much the 100% validation of who’s in and an actual housewife instead of a friend of… or frienemy in many cases.

    I don’t comment much anymore. I could never keep up with all of the comments despite how much I wanted to. I was trying to fight my limitations because I saw the special bond so many of you share and it seems that became my undoing. However, I cannot help but be empathetic when I do happen to catch the comments from those who are obviously distressed, in pain and/or having problems, even though in most cases I may not know exactly why. For many, there’s no doubt that the holidays magnify wounds. I know that’s the case in my home. Most believe there is power in prayer and I don’t think anyone can hear enough that there are others that care… just because. So even if I don’t know what the problem is, I still know there is a problem and that’s enough for me. I also realize many times I never see any of the comments about difficulties any one of you may be having. Hence, I keep you ALL in my thoughts and prayers. I simply can’t come on here and comment only about these housewives, some of whom I’m uncertain whether or not they have a soul, without acknowledging the unquestionable reality of those here. ((((Everyone))))

    All I have learned from Bravo and RHONJ is the lengths people will go for fame and fortune. It is one destructive mess for many souls. If everything is fake, they allow their family to be projected in a false light and that is not good for anyone. If some things are true and used for a storyline, they allow their family to be exploited which is also not good.

    Bravo must be off their rocker if they think bringing Dina back will somehow be the storyline to heal all the wounds in Teresa’s family. Hogwash!! I once adored Caroline and Jaq’s characters. Now I despise them, they reek to me. You can put them next to people I adore and it will not change my opinion of their character. If Dina is anywhere near mending TSIL and Kathy concerning Teresa, she will be just like Caroline, a hypocrite. The sudden “being civil” between Dina and her sister Caroline will not change that fact.

    What a farce. I do not want to watch hypocrites. I do not want to watch people fake relationships in order to show unity. Give me something real and I will hang my hat on it. Blow smoke and I am so gone.

    Toying with someone’s heart is the cruelest thing ever and I can not tolerate it. I do not care what people have done in their past, I care what they are doing right now. Destructive people destroy things. You can not build anything on a false foundation. You fool yourself if you think something good will come out of surrounding yourself with people who wish to steal your joy.

    Your happiness and good heart does not move them towards you, it inflames them. They think they will be totally happy if they take away your happiness, but they will still be empty. They do not want to build anything for their sake or your sake. They thrive on destruction whether they are passive or aggressive. Don’t settle for love crumbs or fake relationships. It is not worth it. It’s junk. Christmas is coming, give your heart something that brings it joy and peace.

      Well said Kay, that’s why I wont be watching. I’ve invested so much time and energy on this show only to be disappointed over and over again. I’d rather come here and read great posts by you and others.

      You guys may not believe it but when I read your comments they bring me happiness and joy that I don’t always get from the people in my life. Some of them outright try to steal it from me so I can be miserable too. I call them emotional vampires that feed off your positive energy and spew negativity. So I’m going to take your advice Kay and not let them take it from me this Christmas.

      Thank you so much for your posts! ((((HAPPY)))) Holidays Fame-ily!

      • December 9, 2013 at 8:05 PM

        I know how you feel. I have also been disappointed by this program (RHONJ), time and time again. It is so much more fun to imagine what has gone down by reading the comments and the articles on this site.

        I have also been a victim of the people I love, sucking the life out of me. My children excluded, my cousins can be a hand full. I love them dearly, buy they can suck the life out of a person.

        I miss my Fame-ily, as there is so much happening this holiday season. Be careful what you wish for, because it could happen. I wished for things to be like they were when my children were in school. I got it! All of the grandbabies happenings, which I truly love, but miss those lazy days interacting with my Fame-ily.

    “Once Is Enough” by Elvis Presley

    All you got is one life
    Living once can be rough
    But if you live every day all the way
    Once is enough

    You can own just one suit
    Worn and torn at the cuff
    But if you’re livin’ the life that you love
    Once is enough

    What’s the good of reaching ninety
    If you waste eighty-nine
    You got one life so live it
    If you don’t it’s a crime

    Life’s a playful puppy
    You can grab by the scruff
    And if you live every sec’ what the heck
    Once is enough

    Never wait until tomorrow
    What if it never comes
    Life is a seven layer
    Don’t you settle for crumbs

    Life’s a playful puppy
    You can grab by the scruff
    And if you live every sec’ what the heck
    Once is enough
    And if you live every sec’ what the heck
    Once is enough
    And if you live every sec’ what the heck
    Once is enough

    Things seriously sour between RHONJ’s Rosie Pierri and her ‘Beautiful Lady,’ Ellen Minkin

    August 21, 2014

    Rosie first confirmed the relationship’s demise after the episode aired by telling a Twitter follower she’s been single again “for some time.”

    “For the record that was then and this is now IT IS OVER!!! Ms.right and still out there waiting! She wasn’t it!!,” she elaborated in another tweet before adding there are no hard feelings.

    However, based on new comments from Ellen, that may not be the full story.

    “I’m sorry I did it, I’m sorry I went out with her, I feel like she used me,” Ellen, a local TV news writer, told WetPaint of appearing on the show. “We really weren’t in a heavy-duty relationship. We were just very good friends, and she makes it seem like we were together and we had this whole relationship. Really, I was just doing her a favor, and now I’m paying the price.”

    Now Ellen said she’s so frustrated by the things went down that she believes Rosie intentionally “manipulated” her.

    “I shouldn’t have [gone on the show]. I was really just trying to be friends with her and help her,” she said, adding Rosie is too “set in her ways” to have a genuine relationship. “I think I was really nice to her.”


    Bitter Breakup: Rosie Pierri’s Ex Ellen Minkin SLAMS ‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ Star: ‘I Feel Like She Used Me!’
    Posted on Aug 21, 2014

    Rosie Pierri recently tweeted that there were “no hard feelings” after her sudden breakup from girlfriend Ellen Minkin— but it seems the outspoken Real Housewives of New Jersey star was sorely mistaken.

    In an interview with Wetpaint, the WCBS-TV writer accused Pierri of manipulating her into appearing on the Bravo reality show.

    “I’m sorry I did it,” Minkin said of her ‘RHONJ’ guest role. “I’m sorry I went out with her. I feel like she used me.”

    The New Yorker even claimed Pierri, who introduced her “beautiful lady” to family and friends with an emotional dinner on last week’s episode, heavily exaggerated their romance.

    “We really weren’t in a heavy-duty relationship,” Minkin confessed. “We were just very good friends, and she makes it seem like we were together and we had this whole relationship. Really, I was just doing her a favor, and now I’m paying the price.”

    Despite Minkin’s bitter words, it seems the 46-year-old cousin of cast member Teresa Guidice is holding her head high.

    “Ms. right and still out there waiting!” she tweeted on August 17.

    The furniture company project manager previously appeared on Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker to jumpstart her love life, but Patti Stanger never found Pierri’s special someone.


    This is an article from July 2011, written at the same time the In Touch cover story, “I’m Terrified of Being Poor”, was discussed extensively on camera by the cast (Teresa was quoted in the magazine saying that the Wakiles accused her of being a shopaholic).

    July 20th, 2011

    (Update: I originally put this story up Tuesday but hid it from public view while I debated running it in the first place. The next day, RadarOnline posted the same story as “Exclusive”. Now that it’s fully public, I decided to go ahead and “unhide” the story and make it public.)

    Kim G’s PR guy Tom Morro (www.celebritymagnet.com) forwarded this email sent by Leslie Mota (the Personal Assistant to Kathie and Rich Wakile) to store owner Ed Bergen.

    Basically here’s what happened. A local men’s clothing store in Franklin Lakes, NJ, called Something Sophisticated, agreed to give Richard and son Joseph some free clothing. You know, the boys get their photo taken in the clothing, they keep the clothes, and the clothing store gets a photo of the “celebrities” wearing their shirts. It happens all the time.

    Call me naive, but I thought when a big A Lister bought a shirt, they just took a photo with the store owner to be nice. You think Penelope Cruz can’t afford a shirt and needs freebies? That’s how Ed Hardy built up their clothing store. One A Lister at a time. And keep in mind, we’re talking about A Listers from Hollywood. Not the Real Housewives of NJ. Type in “Richard and Kathy Wakile” into Google and see which story is listed first. This one! Thousands of dollars in free publicity for everyone!

    So Leslie sent this email (below) to local store owner Ed Bergen explaining that the Camp Wakile demands had not been met. You’re on a Bravo TV show for a few weeks and suddenly they’re making demands like they’re Madonna. If the Wakiles are letting people use their photos, they want thousands of dollars in free clothing or it’s just not worth their time! (You know how much they love helping out the local merchants.)

    Now I would be fair and ask Kathy and Richard for their side of the story. But this IS their side of the story.

    When you own a small business, it’s not the same as running Macy’s. You can’t just give away an all-you-can-wear buffet of clothing.

    I actually like this family and thought they were a refreshing change of pace for the show. Now I’m rethinking everything. Who makes the kind of demands listed in the letter below to a local business? Are they starting to believe their own hype now?


    Hello Ed,

    When we agreed to do the photo shoot with you at your shop we did so first and foremost because Heather spoke highly of you as a person. She told us your story and how you walked away from your corporate job to follow a passion and dream of yours to create your own clothes line and men’s boutique in Franklin Lakes. The Wakile family believes in helping out the local merchants and establishments within their neighborhood and local surroundings. They are very much pro-grass roots establishments. Since Something Sophisticated is a start up local business immediately we said no problem Richard and his son Joseph would love to help them out. We understand that your catalog would been distributed to homes within the Franklin Lakes area and featured in Patch.com as well as your website. Any kind of “free” press and more exposure is greatly appreciated.

    However, Richard and Joseph lending themselves to your shop for a photo shoot is definitively much more of a benefit to you than it is to them. Richard and his family as you know are cast members on The Real Housewives of NJ which is aired on Bravo TV every Sunday night. Over 1 million viewers tune in weekly to watch the show. Between Richard and Kathy on both their private and public Facebook pages they have over 7000 fans. Amongst Richard, his wife Kathy and both of their teenage kids they have over 15,000 followers on Twitter. Needless to say any mention from any of them regarding any item from your shop and/or your shop is guaranteed to reach an audience and quantity of people that even paying your Public Relations representative would not reach. Not to mention the publicity would have been free of charge to you. Kathy is styled free of charge by high end boutiques all the time. Kathy in exchange for the clothes does promote them and give them free press on her social media sites and on the show. Please note that Kathy is allowed to keep the clothes if she so wishes to do so. Normally, these outfits are over the $2000 price point.

    I feel it is totally of bad taste and disrespectful not only to give both Richard and Joseph a limit of two items that they could take from your shop but also not allowed them to take clothes other than your in house brand. When we spoke your words to me were at you would, “hook them up and take care of them”. Two shirts at a price point of a total for maybe $100 in exchange for all that associated your shop with both Richard and Joseph is not at all being thankful nor grateful for whom they are. Richard and his family are already established brands. As you well know publicity is expensive and is the heart of any business. If they worn your own brand and/or one of the designers you carry either which way your shop would have benefited from the free publicity they would have given you.

    Therefore, I must regretfully inform you that we are not allowing the pictures to be used by you, your shop and/or photographer in anyway. We are not authorizing you to use them for the purpose of promoting your business and/or clothes line. So we greatly would appreciate you respect our decision and not place the pictures of Richard and/or Joseph on your website and in any connection on any of your social media sites, catalogs, look books etc. Please also refrain from using them for personal purposes either. I do not want the Wakile family used in any way with anything that has to do with Something Sophisticated, ConquerStyle.com or your Twitter account.

    Please be advised that I saw you have already placed a picture on your Facebook page and I am requesting that you remove it immediately.

    Thanks so much in advance for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

    Best regards,
    Leslie Mota
    Personal Assistant to Mr.and Mrs. Wakile

    The following are tweets on Kathy’s twitter timeline after the ‘secrets revealed’ episode aired on October 26, 2014. During this episode Kathy asked Teresa to write a blurb for her dessert cookbook and Teresa told Kathy she was offended by the gag gift of a dictionary from Kathy the past Christmas. It was a gag gift, which was supposed to be done randomly, but if you watch the scene from early in the season, it is a continuous shot – Kathy took the dictionary out of her bag and passed it to Rosie; Rosie looked at it and looked back at Kathy; Kathy, smirking, pointed to Teresa; Rosie put the dictionary in front of Teresa. So Kathy knew exactly what she was doing.

    Angie ‏@Hellbettyangie
    come on @KathyWakile you meant for Teresa to get the dictionary. #RHONJ

    Angie ‏@Hellbettyangie
    @plainviewsue @KathyWakile What would had been so wrong with owning it and apologizing? SHE says T doesn’t but she doesn’t either.

    Sue Cohen ‏@plainviewsue
    @Hellbettyangie @KathyWakile She & Rosie came back for one purpose. To talk about Tre. I think that’s why Tre walks off during the reunion.

    Angie ‏@Hellbettyangie
    @plainviewsue @KathyWakile I had a feeling Melissa wouldn’t film with Kathy alone. I think she is really trying to mend fences.

    Kathy Wakile ‏@KathyWakile
    @SebastianMamma so over it!! And fyi…. I am living my life!! Thanks for your words of wisdom
    6:58 PM – 26 Oct 2014

    @SebastianMamma no worries sweetie!!

    “Kathy put the betrayal in fambly when she filmed herself reacting to Teresa’s sentence!”

    Teresa meets Kathy Wakile for lunch and drags Dina along to chaperone. Kathy asks a favor from Teresa: she wants Teresa to write a blurb for the back of her new cookbook. Teresa pauses for a second, slowly repeats the word “Blurb,” plops a massive dictionary down on the table, and then reads the definition of “blurb” aloud. Teresa tells Kathy, Look bitch – you haven’t tawked to me in nine months now here youse come askin’ for a favor, like me gettin’ your ass on this show wasn’t favor enuf! Furthermore, you gave me a dictionary for Christmas, so that implies you think I can’t use English language. Why would you want a blurb from me? Oh and my ghostwriter can’t do it cause she’s busy writing my tell-all. Teresa tells us, “How do you spell bitch? K-A-T-H-Y.” Kathy insists the dictionary was a joke – and Teresa is defensive about everything. “I just want to let you know, I was hurt by it, and… I don’t want anything takin’ me down,” Teresa explains. Kathy wants Teresa to support her, as she has done for her (when?). Teresa doesn’t feel comfortable writing the blurb. “Teresa put the dick in dictionary,” Kathy seethes in the confessional. Teresa is done – she doesn’t want no more scrubs sittin’ in the passenger side of her reality TV ride. She’s already forgiven Melissa, so her stone cold heart is closed. Gotta say – I’m team Tre on this one. Especially since Kathy put the betrayal in fambly when she filmed herself reacting to Teresa’s sentence! – Mary, Reality Tea, October 27, 2014

    Dina Manzo Says Kathy Wakile Isn’t As Sweet As She Seems! Plus, Did Dina Move To NYC?
    Reality Tea
    October 28th, 2014

    It’s no secret that Dina Manzo regrets her decision to return to Real Housewives Of New Jersey. I mean doh – RHONJ and Zen like don’t match! Defending her friend Teresa Giudice (and defending herself against twitterholic family members and their co-conspirators), Dina said Kathy Wakile is just not that sweet on the WWHL Aftershow!

    Discussing DICKtionaryGate between Kathy and Teresa, Dina admits she initially thought Teresa was being ridiculous and should just accept Kathy’s apology. But now that Dina knows Kathy a little better… and has seen how Kathy is behaving with Jacqueline Laurita (i.e. using each other for camera time and filming reactions Teresa’s sentencing), Dina has changed her mind. Now she seems to imply that Kathy is manipulative and scheming just like everyone else on RHONJ!

    “At the time I actually liked Kathy, but my opinion has changed a little bit since… Just seeing more of how some people work,” Dina explained to Andy Cohen. “I don’t think she’s a horrible person but I don’t think she’s as sweet as… First of all there’s a way to go about Teresa and what’s going on with her and not hurt her. And then there’s a way…” What is Dina now like the bonafide expert on all things Tre? Probably wouldn’t want that title…

    Kathy, of course, could not stay off twitter for a hot half a second – like less time than it would take me to eat a cannoli – and responded by calling Dina a hypocrite. “Just watching #wwhl after show and I’m cracking up!!” Kathy tweeted. “I find hypocrisy and irony extremely comical!!” Oh my… seems like Kathy really, really wants to be back on RHONJ as Boozeline’s buddy no 1. Again, not a title I would want… Although yes, being on RHONJ and spouting about zen is comical!

    I do have a quick question however, does anyone on RHONJ expect us to believe they have JOBS when alllllllllll they do is tweet?! That’s what’s comical to me.

    In other news, has Dina moved out of Tommy Manzo‘s NJ mansion and set up shop in her own NYC apartment?! Where will she fit all the hairless cats? Or leopard shoes? Dina was struggling to move on and finalize her divorce this season. The exes seem to remain separated.

    Dina’s daughter Lexi attends NYU and Dina has been spending a lot of time there. Dina posted a couple instagram photos of her “apartment” and having NYC moments.

    “My apartment is so peaceful & pleasant today…,” Dina shared.

    “Happy little #NYC moment. If I had a pen & paper on me I would leave them a note to thank them!”

    Well I guess Dina really is done with RHONJ! Except for Teresa, she told Andy they are closer than ever and she would definitely visit Teresa in the slammer if Teresa will let her.

    Hi Huh!

    I think Tre is absolutely repulsed by Richie and extremely upset at Kathy for continuously bashing her in public.

    On Twitter there is a user by the name NJ Insider who, some how or another, got a hold of Dolores’ promo picture before it was released. So, that was his/hers proof that they were privy to season 7 RHONJ behind-the-scenes gossip. Believing NJ is up to you.

    NJ tweeted that the reason Tre was upset at Kathy was the Ashlee Holmes video she put up on her IG account of Kathy and some random guest at Lauren’s wedding mocking Tre, while Tre was at Camp. IDK if you remember when that happened? Ashlee and Kathy were bashed bad on social media for doing that. It got so bad that Ashlee ended up taking the video down!

    Anyway, just thought I’d share that with you. That was pretty low of Cousin Kathy to do while Tre was locked up! Instead of sending Tre a letter/card while at Danbury, Kathy was filmed mocking her and getting media attention doing so! I bet Kathy wishes Tre was jealous of her! I mean Kathy stooped that low to humiliate Tre while Tre was at the lowest point of her life! Kathy’s the Worst Cousin Ever!
