Kathy Wakile Says Family Drama on TV May Be Worth It For Business Opportunities, Comes to Melissa’s Defense
Kathy Wakile is clearing the air regarding Melissa’s rumored stripper past. In a recent interview she says where her relationship with Teresa stands, discusses Joe Giudice and his comments, and talks about her new business venture and whether or not exploiting family and friendships on reality TV is worth it.
During her sit-down with Hollywood Life, Kathy states that she really doesn’t have a relationship with Teresa at the moment. When asked about Joe Giudice’s comments about her, she says that “maybe his comedic genius tapped off along with his growth.” The RHONJ hypocrisy strikes again! Can we discuss Richie’s comments about Teresa? Hmmm.
Kathy also explains that during the last night of the dramatic Napa Valley trip, she did not intend to start a fight between Caroline and Teresa. Kathy said she was unaware that Caroline could hear because the hot tub motors were on. The interviewer asks Kathy if the family and friendships being torn apart is worth doing the show, and Kathy answers that “you have to look a the good things that come out of it too.” She speaks about her cannoli kit that will be launched as a result of being on the show. It’s really surprising – or is it? – to hear her avoid the question and basically agree that tearing apart a family or friendships on national TV is worth it for a business deal.
Not leaving the stripper drama unattended, Kathy came to Melissa’s defense about the allegations made against her. “She wasn’t really a dancer,” Kathy says. “She worked in a club and she was kind of like a Hooters girls, a hostess, a bar maid. She wasn’t a dancer. And even if she had been it doesn’t matter because I know her now and she’s a great mom, and wife and they have a beautiful life. She wasn’t a murderer. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it.”
Kathy also says that she has never seen any behavior from Joe that would incriminate him of cheating on Teresa. This makes me doubt, even more, the truth behind the notorious phone call where she calls Teresa bad names and made seem like he is speaking to another woman. We all know how edited this show is. What are your thoughts on what Kathy had to say regarding the benefits of doing the show?
