Dina Manzo’s daughter Lexi just went to prom and graduated from high school, and now another The Real Housewives of New Jersey child is going through the final year rituals.
Who is it?
It’s Joseph Wakile, son of RHoNJ’s Kathy Wakile! Joe’s sister Victoria shared the photo shown yesterday, writing, “Tomorrow is Joey's senior prom! I cannot believe how much you've grown since my prom just two years ago. Proud of everything you are and I'm excited to celebrate this night with you! Love you lots handsome!" Sniff!
It looks like the pic is from Victoria’s big night, and she’s now worried that the skies will be gray for her brother’s event. "This rain better clear up!” she wrote on June 12. “Tonight is Joey's Senior Prom and pictures are at our house!!" Joey also shared this weather tweet: "Rain On Prom Day For The Boys (repeat)."
Eh. Well. It’s not like you usually dance outside at most proms… and photos can always be done inside. (The family is still building their new home, though, and on May 26 Joe shared this photo, noting that it’s “Soon To Be The New Wakile Compound.”)
Kathy is clearly thrilled for her son, even if she must have those bittersweet feelings most parents have when their baby birds grow old enough to fly away. Last week, Kathy shared this photo of her son, writing, "So proud of my boy @josephwakile for receiving a Leadership Award Scholarship last night! #BornLeader #President #VP #StudentCouncil #GraduationIsNear."
Congrats to Joe — and good luck with everything at prom! (Well, maybe not everything, but the weather anyway…)
