Given the explosive tension between Teresa Giudice and her RHoNJ co-stars this season, it’s no surprise that the Season 4 Reunion, which taped last week, was a knockdown, drag-out affair.
Kathy Wakile, however, was in better spirits a few days later on September 10, where we ran into the fan favorite and her always-delightful husband, Richie, at NYC hotspot Kiss & Fly, where they supported RHoC star Gretchen Rossi in the presentation of her Gretchen Christine Pink and 2013 collections.
Speaking exclusively with Wetpaint Entertainment, Kathy and Richie gave us the lowdown on what happened at the explosive reunion taping, and where things stand with Teresa now.
Wetpaint: Now that the reunion has been taped, has anything been resolved with regard to Teresa?
Kathy: Unfortunately, no. I don’t think anything was resolved.
Richie: Well, you can go two ways with that. It’s either resolved … or the book was closed.
Teresa often makes the claim that everyone, you guys included, are jealous of her. What do you think she means by that? What would you be jealous of?
Kathy: I have no idea. I have nothing to be jealous of. I have the most wonderful husband in the world, I have two incredible kids and we’re all healthy and that’s the world to me.
Next week is the Posche fashion show episode. What can you tell us about it?
Richie: Disgusting. It’s just disgusting.
Kathy: It was pretty plain to see what was going on. Everything was laid out there for you. It’s at its worst.
Up until the reunion taping, had you and Teresa been in touch?
Kathy: I was texting her all throughout the holidays when all the great things were happening with her. I was sending out good vibes.
Kathy. Now, it is what it is. But I’m not going to lie, it’s bad.
Richie: We’re in the same spot we’ve always been in. Things around us have just gotten uglier.
What are your takeaway thoughts for this season?
Kathy: Its just sad. It didn’t have to be this way. Teresa chose for it to be this way.
Richie: As a family affair, this could have been so much more fun. But greed destroys a lot of things.
