On the RHONJ reunion last night, Bravo showed a clip of the Wakile family discussing Teresa’s legal issues. Infuriated that her family would talk about such things on camera, Teresa left the room and waited off set until the conversation ended.
Both Teresa and Dina tried to explain to Kathy why she should have kept her comments to herself, but not everyone seems to agree. Both Lea Black and Jacqueline Laurita tweeted that Kathy and Rosie had every right to talk about what was going on.
Lea said, “How can u blame @Rosie and @KathyWakile for the aunts comments? Why is everyone tip toeing around the elephant in the room? #rhonj”
No one would expect Jacqueline to side with Teresa, so it’s not surprising that she tweeted: “I don’t think @KathyWakile said anything harmful or negative at all. She felt horrible for what Teresa & her family was going through.”
Everyone has a right to an opinion. Yes, Teresa and Joe made mistakes and people are welcome to blame them for the situation they are in. The problem with Kathy, Rosie, and Jacqueline is not that they have an opinion on the Giudices’ legal issues, but how fake they are about it. Instead of honoring Teresa’s wishes not to discuss her situation on camera, they all did just that… because it got them attention. Then, when Teresa and Joe were sentenced, they filmed their reactions and appeared to be devastated by the results. It was all very obviously faked for attention and I do see why Teresa is so upset by it.
Do you think Kathy and Rosie should have kept this discussion off-camera? Or do you think they had every right to discuss “the elephant in the room”?
