On Sunday night’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Kathy Wakile and her sister Rosie Pierri made a guest appearance. Rosie brought along her girlfriend at the time, Ellen Minkin.

As we reported, Rosie and Ellen are no longer together. We’re still not sure what happened between the two of them, but Ellen tells Wetpaint that she felt ‘manipulated’ to appear on the show and regrets agreeing to do it.

“I’m sorry I did it, I’m sorry I went out with her, I feel like she used me. We really weren’t in a heavy-duty relationship. We were just very good friends, and she makes it seem like we were together and we had this whole relationship. Really, I was just doing her a favor, and now I’m paying the price.”

Ellen added that she felt like she was nice to Rosie but found it difficult to get along with her personality.

“I think I was really nice to her,” Ellen said, adding that Rosie is “set in her ways,” and that made it hard for them to work. “I think I was really pretty nice to her. I think that she and I were really not meant to be together.”

Their relationship seemed very forced on screen so I’m not super surprised that they’re aren’t together anymore.

Do you think that Rosie used Ellen to appear on the show?
