Kathy Wakile: I Love Teresa!

by at . Comments

Kathy Wakile is playing dumb. Or, perhaps, it's not really an act.

The new cast member on The Real Housewives of New Jersey was clearly brought in to replace Danielle Staub on the show and create serious tension, especially between herself and her cousin, Teresa Giudice.

But Wakile tells Zap2It she never considered that possibility when contacted by Bravo, and she isn't trying to choose sides now between Teresa and her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga.

Kathy Wakile and Melissa Gorga have upped the family drama on season two.

"I never wanted to choose between Melissa or Teresa," Kathy says. "As I said before, I grew up with Teresa. Teresa is my cousin and I love her. I looked at her like a little sister. When Joe and Melissa got married, I looked at Melissa like a cousin, too. And we all got along really, really well initially. And what happened was Teresa's life got busier."

Wakile simply says she and her cousin have simply grown apart, and viewers were misled into thinking that Kathy was critiquing Teresa's mother last episode.

"I was talking to her from a place of love," Kathy claims, referring to the confrontation that took place after a fight broke out at a family christening.

That sound you hear as Wakile defends herself and her relationship? Bravo executives laughing all the way to the ratings bank.

I don't like Kathy. I think Kathy is more dislikeable than Melissa. How could you seemingly and in action, side with someone over your own cousin. Aren't you Italian and "family over everything"?

I enjoy Kathy and Melissa. I think they are both great additions to the show. I actually think they are trying to make peace. Theresa doesn't understand the concept. She and her family are wayyyyy out of line. That Theresa really needs some professional help.

AGREE 1000% WITH LORI!
THIS NEW KATHY IS A POT-STIRRER, AND LIKES TO WHITE-WASH ALL THE WRONGS THE GORGA FAMILY DOES. AND, THEY DO PLENTY!
I DON'T CARE FOR ANY OF THE NEW PEOPLE AND I DON'T GET THE IMPRESSION A LOT OF VIEWERS DO. BUT, IT BRINGS BRAVO RATINGS, NO MATTER HOW LOW CLASS IT SEEMS TO GET.
THIS RECAP IS JUST FACTUAL, BUT I STOPPED WATCHING THE SHOW AND JUST READ THE OTHER HILARIOUS RECAPS. THEY ARE GREAT AND MAKE YOU LAUGH! IF THE ARTICLES ADDRESS JOE GORGA, YOU REALLY WILL LAUGH TILL YOU CRY!

I cannot stand the two new cast members; they are mean little hypocrites with no redeeming qualities. In fact, I quit watching the show because they reminded me so much of nasty little high school girls that I could no longer stomach the show...or them.

Kathy loves Teresa...yet in every Talking Head interview during the show she's constantly putting Teresa down.
When describing Joe Gorga's Halloween outfit looking a Teresa a train week...to I see the lights but knock knock nobody is there. This is just Kathy's poor attempt at damage control. She and Melissa came out of the gate with guns blazing to make Teresa look bad. Well they are now feeling the heat for it. Hope the Bravo fame was worth it.
