Kathy Wakile is taking to her Bravo Blog to discuss her shopping experience with Jacqueline Laurita on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Kathy says watching the episode back made it clear that Jacqueline and Chris were not ready to go on the retreat and make amends with the Giudices at that time. Kathy says she wanted to take Jac shopping to get her mind off of being a mommy.
Kathy writes, “As we talked more about this retreat I realized that Jacqueline and Chris were really not ready to do this based on what was happening with Nicholas and his therapy. It was becoming apparent that this is more involved than any of us really even knew, and it wasn’t fair for us to keep pushing for them to come. At that time I was thinking that we ALL needed a retreat or an insane asylum (inserting the signature Wakile sarcasm as usual).
I was thinking, now that I’ve been watching the episodes like all of you, I’m understanding more and more of what Jacqueline and Chris were really going through with Nick. It’s one thing to hear them tell you their struggles, but to actually see it as an ongoing daily process is something else. I now see how unfair it was to try and convince her to join us and expect her or anyone else to resolve their conflicts before they feel ready. At the same time, maybe it would just be better if it was just our family. Wait and see, it is unbelievable when you observe every emotion out there and more…
Regarding shopping with Jacqueline and the phone call, let’s just say you can’t make this stuff up! I wanted her to come with me to one of my favorite boutiques. It is so great to see Jacqueline getting out and getting her sexy back. We all need to be reminded that we are more than just mommy. Girl time is a very good thing.”
