Kathy Wakile And Jacqueline Laurita Speak Out About RHONJ Changes


Kathy Wakile is speaking out about her new role on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Speaking to E! News, Wakile explains we will see her on the upcoming season of the show, but in a smaller capacity.

“I’m so happy to be part of the Bravo family. I have enjoyed being a RHONJ Housewife and have now agreed to terms that give me the opportunity to film the show in a way which better suits my lifestyle,” Kathy explains. “I’ve been able to get to know the new girls on my terms while remaining free to focus on other great things, including the expansion of my businesses.”

“The most important thing is being happy, healthy and pursuing your dreams, which I have to say is something I get to experience everyday,” Kathy shares. “I am looking forward to the viewers sharing with my family and I, including my sister Rosie [Pierri], in all we have been up to since last season and thank them for the continuous support.”

Jacqueline Laurita is also speaking out about her decision to leave RHONJ. “I was not fired. I was burnt out from drama that didn’t interest me,” Jacqueline tweeted. “More important things on my mind. I’m doing part-time on a show more upbeat.”



Jacqueline also announced she will be appearing on Manzo’d With Children, which will premiere this fall.
