Kathy Wakile Says Teresa Makes Things Very Difficult Because Kathy Has Remained Friends With The Laurita’s/Manzo’s
RHONJ star Kathy Wakile spoke to Celebbuzz and tells them that Teresa makes it very difficult for Kathy to remain friends with Jac and Caroline while still maintaing a good relationship with her! Kathy also talks about the recipe comments she made!
Celebuzz: Why do you think that Teresa took your comments about her desert recipes as an insult??
Kathy Wakile: I saw a picture in her cookbook and it brought me back to my childhood, and what my mother used to make in the kitchen, what I grew up seeing. So of course, [I said,] “Oh, like momma makes. Oh, my mom’s cooking.” It wasn’t anything calculating, my mom and her mom are sister-in-laws. Her mother doesn’t have any other siblings. My mother doesn’t have any sister-in-laws on her side of the family here in this side of the country. They baked together. What’s the big deal? There’s no reason to be so defensive unless you’re maybe insecure about something.
You’re starting your own dessert business. Does the fact that Teresa already uses some of those recipes in her cookbook affect you??
Not one bit. You know you can give ten women the same recipe and a lot of times they will come out different. You know what I mean? And you’ve got to enjoy and believe in what you do, and not be insecure about it, and just go forward. You know what? She’s doing really well with her cookbook and I think God bless her and support her. She’s doing wonderful. No one is asking for anything. I want to support her. I never insinuated that she stole anything.
At this point in the show, Jacqueline and Teresa have just had a parting of ways. Is it possible to remain friends with Jacqueline and even Caroline Manzo and still maintain a good relationship with Teresa??
She makes that very difficult. I have to be quite honest. She makes that very difficult, because she wants to always state her point and prove her side is correct and get you on her side. But it’s not really about taking sides, and I don’t feel that it should be at this point in our lives. We’re grown women and you can perfectly establish and sustain a relationship outside of one basic relationship and be able to handle relationships with other people. As long as everyone is respectful to one another, why not? It’s a little elementary if you ask me, and you know like a little high school-ish. Haven’t we grown up a bit since then? I like to think that I have, and you know I’m able to sustain other relationships.
I think it’s annoying that Kathy has to even call Teresa out and say she makes things “very difficult” when it comes to that. Obviously Teresa probably doesn’t trust Kathy so she’s afraid if she says something to her, Kathy will run back to the Manzo’s and Laurita’s which Kathy does do this! Do you think Teresa has a right to make things difficult?!
