Following the initial excitement from the release of the RHONJ season 7 trailer came confusion regarding Kathy Wakile’s actual role this season. Bravo announced Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Jacqueline Laurita as official housewives back in February, and introduced Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania to the franchise Tuesday morning. Bravo has an official cast photo and only these women are in it, so the questions remains; why do pictures of Kathy Wakile in the group keep surfacing on the Internet? Not only that, but why are pictures with her sister Rosie Pierri front and center being promoted by Kathy, her family, and their friend Jacqueline Laurita? This all seemed too weird so AATRH had to get to the bottom of it and share all the juicy scoop on this RHONJ photoshop scandal!
The photo below is the official cast photo, and according to our sources the ONLY group photo taken at the RHONJ season 7 promo shoot! Teresa, Melissa, Jacqueline, Siggy, and Dolores were of course all at the shoot, plus this season’s “paid friends of the housewives” Kathy Wakile, Rosie Pierri, Robyn Levy, and her wife Christina Flores. “All 9 of the women took individual pictures, and only one group shot with the 5 official wives. Kathy, Rosie, Robyn, and Christina were not a part of any group shots, not even with each other,” our insider explained.
The picture below is what will appear in the beginning segment of the show after the taglines before the episode starts!
This is what Kathy added to announce the show’s premiere and this picture too is from the Bravo website, but these are individual photos that you click on for each woman’s bio.
Kathy still has a section on here while Robyn Levy doesn’t; making it easy for Kathy to try and manipulate her followers into thinking she is a full time cast member. There are a lot of theories going around about why Robyn is not on the site, but it’s funny there is no mention of Rosie or Christina. Rosie and Kathy both have bio’s, but they have since their first season on the show. It’s suspected that Robyn and Christina will be added to the cast section at a later date, as they should be! Our source added that all four “friends” played an equally large role in season 7 saying that, “Kathy and Rosie were very involved as were Robyn and Christina as evident by the season 7 trailer.”
What’s even worse than Kathy’s photoshop was Rosie’s season 7 announcement! She too used the bio pictures, only front and center are the words “The Cast,” when the photo is NOT the cast! Kathy of course is in the picture, but Dolores is missing! This picture looks like what it is; a picture of the computer screen, because this view is not available on the phone since it’s not in fact an actual picture!
It’s not cool that Rosie shared this picture but Dolores didn’t seem to mind, in fact she’s guilty of sharing some photoshop herself! The picture below was first added by Kathy, her daughter Victoria, and Rosie herself, but then also shared by Jacqueline and Dolores! It’s BEYOND obvious that this picture is photoshopped, Bravo would never have a ”friend” of the wives front and center with the show’s star in the back; were we really supposed to believe that?
A few hours ago Teresa Giudice reiterated what our sources said when she cleared up the cast photo confusion with one tweet! “@TeresaGiudice: So there’s no more confusion this is the real @Bravotv CAST photo for Season 7 of #RHONJ the others are photoshopped”
Tonight the Internet was having A LOT of fun with the RHONJ photoshop scandal and I have to admit the first one is by far my favorite, and probably his too!
This whole photshopping situation is tacky and desperate, but not surprising; did Kathy really think we wouldn’t notice? If she can make the “official” cast whomever she wants why can’t we? We decided to do something different and have some Friday fun; Tweet us YOUR best RHONJ season 7 cast photshop and we will share with our followers! Make sure to tag @allabouttrh and #RHONJ! Happy Photoshopping….
