RHONJ star Kathy Wakile took to her blog to react to the mysterious phone call Joe Giudice made and explains her conversation with Caroline and Jacqueline plus says she was embarrassed about Teresa not including her in the toast she made at dinner!
“Caroline’s surprise birthday dinner was special for all of us. Being perched upon the hilltop overlooking the vineyard was absolutely breathtaking. The heartfelt tributes from her children made me proud of them. As a mom, you can only hope that your children can love you in that way and express it that well. That in itself is one of the most precious gifts of all.
When Joe Giudice stepped away for his phone call, none of us knew what was said or what had happened between him and Teresa until this week when we previewed our episode. In retrospect Rich’s comment, which was meant as a wisecrack, now may have been a little insensitive. Rich and I both feel badly about the situation. This all happened a year ago, and we sincerely hope that they are in a much better place.
I want to address the little talk I had with Caroline and Jacqueline before our last dinner at the Lancaster Estate. If you’re wondering why I asked so many questions about what went on in their conversations with Teresa, I will tell you. We all spent a great deal of time on this trip trying to understand and sort out our relationships. Some relationships were on the mend and others were fractured. This was true for each and every one of us. Here we were, all together, trying to make a go of it, each in our own way. I felt that I needed to understand the dynamics of what was going on so that I could be supportive and compassionate to everyone. That’s just me, I’m a libra and I constantly try to find balance.
This brings me to our last dinner. Sometimes I need to see things played back, because I want to be sure of what I heard or didn’t hear at that dinner. The fact that I was left out of my cousin’s toast after I had tried so hard with her was a disappointment at best. If you were there, you knew it was a deliberate snub. You could cut the tension with a knife. I was embarrassed, but I wasn’t going to let it ruin my evening or cause a scene that would ruin anyone else’s evening. Once again Teresa’s actions speak volumes. So at this point I would like to offer my own toast, “In Vino, Veritas (In Wine Is Truth).” The wine keeps flowing into next week as we wrap up our vacation in California.”
I truly believe Teresa’s intention wasn’t to leave Kathy out of the toast and when she said she was glad to be there with EVERYONE, Kathy was included in the “everyone.” I think the housewives need to stop looking so deep into everything Teresa does. It’s exhausting for me to watch so I don’t know how they constantly do it! Thoughts on what Kathy had to say?!
