Kathy Wakile Asked Back To RHONJ Only Because Bravo Wanted Rosie Pierri


As we previously reported, Kathy Wakile will be returning to season 6 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but in a part-time role. After having her contract with Bravo drastically reduced, a show insider is telling RadarOnline Kathy is only returning because the network wanted more of her sister, Rosie Pierri. “They wanted Rosie, not Kathy. Rosie would never sign a contract without Kathy. So what they did was they made them split a contract,” the insider reveals.

“They are ‘friends of the housewives’ with a split contract,” the insider says. “Trust me, you aren’t going to be seeing too much of Kathy next season. They only got her to get to Rosie.” And the source reveals Kathy was not happy about the changes. “Oh my god, I heard she pulled some tantrum,” the insider says. “Pulled a tantrum!”

As far as Rosie’s appearance on the show the insider explains, “They like the combo, her and Joe Giudice. Did you ever go to school and there’s like a [control] kid in school? She reminds me of that and they exploit that. They love this s***.”

The source reveals Rosie’s sexual preference also helped get her the gig. “Bravo is [a] gay [network] and that’s cool,” the insider says. “And she’s like the gay person on housewives. There’s no question about it.”
