The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Kathy Wakile: “I Never Wanted To Choose Between Melissa or Teresa”

June 05, 2011 11:00 AM by Shayla Perry

We may see her chatting it up with Melissa and Joe Gorga on Bravo‘s Real Housewives of New Jersey, but new wife Kathy Wakile says that fans shouldn’t assume she’s totally Team Melissa in the on-going battle between the Giudice and Gorga families. And though her talk with Teresa Giudice went terribly wrong, Wakile says that she was coming from “a place of love,” and wasn’t trying to insinuate that her cousin is a bad mother.

“I didn’t blame [Teresa] for not knowing where her children were, because obviously if it was my husband and my father and my brother-in-law and my brother involved in something and my children are not in the immediate danger of the actual altercation, I would really be worrying about who was involved,” Kathy tells Zap2it. “And she took it that I was trying to [question her mothering]. And I was not at all.”

While viewers of The Real Housewives of New Jersey may think that Kathy Wakile has taken the side of Melissa Gorga and her husband, Joe, in the family feud, the new addition to the Housewives cast says that it wasn’t her intention to do so.

“I never wanted to choose between Melissa or Teresa,” explains Kathy. “I grew up with Teresa. Teresa is my cousin and I love her. I looked at her like a sister. When Joe and Melissa got married, I looked at Melissa like a cousin too.

“It wasn’t a divide that was intentional by any means,” she adds. “It was not intended to be that way.”

Kathy Wakile may not be taking sides, but who are you backing in the feud between the Giudice and Gorga families? Joe & Teresa Giudice or Joe & Melissa Gorga?

    I think Kathy is a real troublemaker and possibly passive agressive. I believe she has chosen sides and encourages Joe and Melissa, by her remarks, to fight with Teresa. She is really sneeky. Melissa’s sisters have also fueled the flame to make themselves more important to Joe and Melissa.

    If kathy didnt want to start drama and just wanted to talk with teresa , she should have never brought up the fact of her daughter being in harms way . Any mother knows if you are questioned reg your kids those are fighting words and I thought teresa handled that one really well
