Teresa Giudice Cuts Cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri Out of Her Life


This week on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Rosie Pierri and Kathy Wakile were adamant on mending their relationship with their cousin Teresa Giudice and they turned to relationship expert Siggy Flicker to make that happen.

“I just want her back her in my life, and that’s not such a horrible thing,” Rosie told Siggy, who was optimistic she could make that happen. However, Jacqueline Laurita, who was far more familiar with the family’s history, wasn’t so sure things could be mended.

But during a power walk, it was clear Teresa’s relationship with her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, was getting stronger than ever. Teresa confided in Melissa that as Joe’s sentencing date approached, he was lashing out at his family. Teresa admitted that Joe had to have a drink everyday in order to sleep at night and that he wouldn’t talk to her about his feelings about going away.

“This is definitely the closest that her and I have ever been,” Melissa told the cameras.

In a romantic turn of events, Jaqueline’s daughter Ashlee Holmes got engaged to her boyfriend, Pete Malleo in Hoboken, overlooking the Manhattan skyline at sunset. She told Pete that the ring Jacqueline helped him pick out was “perfect,” and she wanted to go home and tell her mom the happy news.

“That’s my daughter wearing an engagement ring. It’s so beautiful. It’s so surreal,” an emotional Jacqueline told the camera. Her husband, Chris, however, said, “She’s all yours, Pete,” he laughed. “Good luck.”

Next, Melissa and Siggy convinced Teresa she needed to get away and due to the terms of her probation she couldn’t go very far. So, the ladies were planning a trip to Vermont. Even though Teresa was hesitant to say yes, it seemed the women had her talked into it.

Then Siggy, Jaqueline, and Teresa met for drinks and Siggy tried to convince Teresa to meet with Kathy and Rosie for drinks. Flicker learned just how deep the family issues go. When Jacqueline tried to give Teresa family advice, Giudice put Laurita right in her place, telling her to back off.

“Jacqueline don’t bring up my f*cking family. I don’t want to f*cking hear it,” she told Jac.

Siggy was taken back by Teresa’s strong reaction to the conversation, so Teresa asked Siggy what her family would do if she was ever accused of a crime. Siggy said her family would “never believe” she was guilty.

“OK, I’m looking at you, Jacqueline!” Teresa said. Siggy and Jacqueline continued trying, though, insisting that all Rosie and Kathy wanted was their family back. “They should have thought about that before trashing my family,” Teresa said.

Melissa, Joe Gorga, and Jacqueline headed to visit Rosie, Kathy and her husband, Richie at their new house, but when the subject of Teresa came up again, tempers flared. Joe Gorga argued that his sister didn’t mean any harm but simply couldn’t forget the things the Wakiles had done to her, while Melissa begged not to be put in the middle again, and that’s when Richie made an off-color comment that set Joe Gorga off.

“I know what it is! This is what it is, right here!” he said before planting a big kiss on Kathy. “I love her for 25 f*cking years! I’m a happy f*cking married guy with a beautiful f*cking family and that’s what it is. That’s what is.”

“Richie was trying to say that he loves his wife and Teresa’s husband doesn’t love her. What a dick thing to say,” Melissa explained to the cameras while Rosie yelled at her brother-in-law to “stop.”

“We all know what you just did,” Joe Gorga yelled at Richie. “It’s got to stop!”

Richie apologized and Joe agreed he wanted his sister to sit down with their cousins. Teresa still insisted she didn’t want to meet with them, but when her brother asked her to she finally caved and made him come with her.

Finally, Kathy, Rosie, Teresa and Joe Gorga met up. Kathy began by making it clear that she wanted to “go forward and be a family,” but Teresa stopped her by letting her know that she wanted “to be left alone.”

Teresa explained, “I don’t want to be hurt anymore. Every time I’m around your husband, he’s always got something negative to say.” Kathy admitted Richie had a “cutting way” about him, but that’s the least of their problems.

“I’m tired. I’ve been through a lot and I haven’t heard from you guys,” Teresa continued, adding that she believed her cousins were only coming around again because she was in the spotlight.

“There’s been a lot of turmoil. I want to cut the cancer out, really,” Teresa said. “We’re not cancer,” Kathy replied, while Rosie added that they are all an embarrassment to their parents.

Teresa ended up saying that she didn’t want a relationship with her cousins in the future, but she wished Kathy and Rosie the best and they all agreed that if they ever really needed anything, the door was “always open.”

While leaving the restaurant, Teresa and Joe Gorga both broke down in tears, because it was a sad thing that had just occurred.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

  • smh

    Teresa is a real POS.. she hasn’t grown as a person at all.. I don’t get why everyone thinks it’s so important to be in her life.. she is a loser.. and her brother, lost all respect for him.. they are trash.. trash, trash, trash.. please Andy.. get rid of them and get new people on next year.. how the hell does Teresa not have compassion for her cousins? Really? Teresa is a loser.. would never buy her books.. why does Bravo keep putting these crap people on these shows.. seriously?

    • Viktor

      How do they not have compassion for her. At the time this was filmed Joe only had a few weeks of freedom. Teresa has a lot on her plate than to carry Kathy and Rosie on her back. Instead of talking behind her back to everyone else. They should’ve sat her down without the cameras and had an open honest conversation. Teresa is correct when she says they only appear when she in the public eye aka when the cameras are rolling. I’m glad Teresa stood her ground and had a civil conversation with them and got her point across. Bye Kathy, Rich, and Rosie.

      • Geminigirl

        I agree a 100%. The timing is completely suspect to me when they had been bashing her up until she came out. Don’t try to be there for me now and say it’s for the family when it’s obvious you need more camera time to pay off that tomb of a house. I don’t blame Teresa. Enough of the hurt.

      • Suze☕️

        Like GG I agree 100% as well with you both. They know now without Tre there is no show, they should have thought about that long ago. Xo

        • Amen to that Suze. Without Tre there is no show. The way Tre dismissed her cousins was thoughtful and to the point. She did herself well last nite. 🙂

      • Bill Brown

        Because she is a liar and a fraud. A convicted felon.

    • Sarah

      I agree with you. It is hard for people that only watch the show to get the ins and outs of the situation. Kathy doesn’t need bravo money. Teresa’s hypocrisy is getting so tiring to watch. No reasonable human being with the least bit of common sense would conduct herself the way she does. The only person trying to create a platform is Teresa. The only person that is worried about a paycheck and storyline is Teresa. Let’s see how long it takes for her to come out with a horrible yoga instruction video since she now claims to be a professional .

    • Sadie Baby

      Are you serious? The ONLY reason that these trash bags are around is to get air time. They dropped off the face of the earth while she was away, Katfish’s Husband trashes T every chance he gets, their garbage. What don’t people understand about the fact that the ONLY reason they came on this show was to take T down and get paid. Come on why can’t certain people see through the bullshit their spewing. I think that was the most adult like and mature T has ever been when dealing with them. No fighting or screaming just flat out honesty.

      • Krista

        I so agree. Tre handled it beautifully, no yelling, no faking, no BS. Katfish & Bucky & Rosie have been vile & cruel. Like when they filmed that scene around the table with their mother when the mother basically said “you do the crime, you do the time.” Was it really necessary to film that? No, but they wanted to stick the knife in – deep. Never could stand those three creatures and Tre was smart to cut the cancer out. Any family member who does what they did deserves to be permanently frozen out as they have proven they don’t have the Guidices best interest at heart. In fact they have clearly demonstrated the opposite. She doesn’t need anymore stress nor does she need to make nice with thirsty, jealous relatives that are just trying to use her for screen time. Good riddance.

        • Suze☕️

          I agree with you both of course no need for me to say much more.

  • Sarah

    I have always watched rhonj and use to be a big fan. Watching this past season has only left a bad taste in my mouth. Teresa makes it seem like nobody tried to reach out to her while she was in prison and simply sending an email was that simple. It’s not . Whoever wanted to email her had to be on a list that only Teresa had control over. While she was sitting in prison, Rosie still had a good relationship with both Joe’s. The arguement that they simply want the spotlight, can easily be discredited. Teresa is full of it and her way of victimizing herself is exhausting. It takes a special kinda person to not change it grow after being in prison for a year, and I don’t mean that in a good way. She takes no accountability for her poor decisions and actions. As a viewer I am over her, and just wish Caroline would come back. I miss laughing when I would watch the show. It use to have its light hearted moments, about family, and true friendships. Now it’s just tired.

    • Aunt Bee

      I agree with much of what you said Sarah. I think Melissa and Joe Gorga were the first to try to take Tre down when that didn’t work they decided to be her “family”. They both make me sick

  • ana

    I think it’s sad that the kids are fighting the battle that the parents started… it seams to me that both of the parents are stubborn as hell and to me it’s sad.

    Kathy’s husband is a jersey and always has been! I’m glad that Joe is in a much better place!!

  • I don’t mind Rosie and Kathy, but I agree with Teresa’s decision to cut them out. They want Teresa back in their lives because it’s convenient for them but meanwhile Teresa has a shitload on her plate.

  • These ladies on the housewife’s piss me of so bad they are always complaining most of the time it’s bs be grateful for what u have most people are living on paycheck these women are worried bout who is doing what be a role model for your children teach them to b kind understanding they are busy dropping f bomb’s & being in everbody business aren’t the always saying we need to forgive each other you have mother’s & father’s working to have something in life like having money for food a roof over there heads I’m not saying they don’t deserve what these ladies have I’m sure they have worked hard for what they have then u have sum who work hard at nothing but being taken care of just remember it can all be taken away god don’t like ugly so make sure next time when a waitress or any other services taking care of u b mindful of them a mother or father a student or any body else forgetting a lemon in your water is really not that important they may thinking I hope I make enough tips tonight to by food while u go home to your 14 bathroom s & and the people who take care of that so pass it forward be kind & that’s what people will member about u not how much money u have or the bitch everybody says you are

  • One Rotten Egg

    Kathy and Rosie should accept TRE doesn’t want them in their lives–period.

    (Both families are wrong, but Teresa DID start bashing Kathy’s parents first).

    • Aunt Bee

      Thank you one rotten egg.

  • I don’t know these people personally and I don’t know why they do what they do. What disturbs me is this trend on each show, that if you don’t like somebody or are mad at them, you can cut them out of scenes by not inviting them to events, or just not interacting with them for less camera time. Didn’t Jill Zarin get in trouble for trying to cut someone out of camera time? I’m not behind the scenes, nor am I in the industry but I don’t understand how people are hired as your co-workers, but then you can refuse to interact with them….I WISH that I could do that at work, but that’s not how life works.lol

  • VileVicky

    Everybody’s favorite Felon take a seat Clink-Clink who r u ripping off next

  • Miss Moneypenny☂

    This. Made. Me. Cry. Awful awful awful no matter who what where why. I feel gutted for them all.

    • Michelle

      I agree Miss Moneypenny……it doesn’t really matter who said what first, the fact that this went down on camera was heart breaking. Even though I felt the whole thing was unnecessary, I did feel Teresa’s tears and heartache was true. The problem with her is that she can genuinely love and hate from one second to another.

      • Miss Moneypenny ☂

        Exactly Michelle. There’s such a thin line between love and hate, as the saying goes. Teresa is battling so many emotions now and has been its any wonder she can’t take on anything more now being it a major repair of relations or anything. She gives new meaning to stoic, I’m surprised the dam hasn’t burst yet. But anyways, it’s all too real and it’s so really sad. For any family. 🙁 ….

  • Real Sandy⛱

    Sick. Sick. Sick. Kathy and Rosie have a lovely mother. I do not know the Gorga family, including parents, but to me, both of their children (Tre and Joe) are hot headed, hard headed and egocentric individuals who feel they are above everyone else and even the law from the past…Tre….
    Thank goodness I do not watch any of this any more, since it only glorifies the worst in society, and rewards them with far too much…and exorbitant salary, so they can keep on being the same as always…sickening and in poor taste, IMO.

    • Aunt Bee

      And I wish they would remember that Kathy is handling her daughter’s recurring brain tumors which to me must be much harder than facing jail time.

  • Miss Moneypenny☂

    Hi Sandy ♥️ I just felt like a voyuer and like I shouldn’t even be watching something like that luncheon with them breaking off ties. And I only just saw it here on the forum video. And you are so right they are so stubborn beyond. I didn’t even watch the episode last night I taped, I probably won’t. I barely watch anyway of them all, just segments. That’s why I don’t know what’s going on most of the time. 3D blows my mind with her every stone unturned critiques. I can’t believe her attention to detail and nuances it’s boggling. She must’ve been off the charts at reading comprehension in grade school too. You seeing this 3D? Lol

  • Daisy

    Hi miss money penny. I started watching fear the walking dead on Sundays. Trust me the zombies are better entertainment than nj. And less violent

  • Miss Moneypenny☂

    hahaha yes Daisy I believe I will check that out, thank you. I really love and faithfully watch the Great British Baking Show and Austin City Limits that’s more my speed. Oh and American Horror Story. lol

    • Suze☕️

      Miss M have you heard BBC has lost the baking show, Mel and Sue and Mary and Paul have all said they wont go to channel 4 who have bought it. It’s a disaster!

      • Suze☕️

        Forgot to say that’s my Wednesday night look forward to!

        • Daisy

          Suze are you talking about America horror story on wednesday

          • Suze☕️

            No sorry the baking show, I know it’s not your thing but I know Miss M loves it.

            • Daisy

              Oh well. I thought you could be my twisted sister. But no worries still love you bunches

              • Suze☕️

                Love you too! I do t think we get the horror show.

      • Miss Moneypenny☂

        I’m sorry I meant to reply here. Suze! Why??? Why??? So you mean we won’t see any shows here in the U.S. Not even reruns? Now I’m gonna wail.

        • Suze☕️

          I know! I don’t even know if I will watch it on Channel 4 if they all leave what is the point. It’s one of the best and most popular shows on the Beeb. (BBC). I am enjoying this season and glad that woman went last week. She was ok just a bit weird!

      • Miss Moneypenny☂

        I just read some articles and I’m so freakin bummed cause I watch it for those four more than the contestants. This is the most charming show I’ve ever seen. Downtown Abbey now this. Crying again.

  • Daisy

    I love America Horror Story

    • Michelle

      Daisy, I tried watching some episodes one season (can’t remember which one now) but I’m a HUGE SCAREDY CAT and it was too scary for me. I was never that brave but the older I get, the scareder I get. This new promo on this new season freaks me out!!

      • Daisy

        Oh I’m sorry sweetie . I think the older I get the more twisted I become

        • Michelle

          LOL I envy you.

  • Miss Moneypenny☂

    Whut?! They’re canceling TGBBS?! Who is PBS? Sons of b*!^%•!

  • patricia

    Can’t stand Teresa. She is why I don’t watch the show anymore. It is so boring. I would love to see a show with Katie, her husband, her family, Rosie, & her mom. They all seem to be so loving & caring. I use to like Melissa & Joe Gorga, but not so much lately. They seem to have welcomed Kathie & Rosie when Teresa kept trying to set Melissa up. Now it looks like they don’t need them anymore. Just a shame.

  • YoYo’sRobe

    OMG I can’t watch the British baking show? Holy mother ship the hosts quit? Love them. That’s so sad this is terrible news

    • Suze☕️

      It is terrible news the British public are in uproar about it! I don’t want to watch it without the four of them. Xoxoxo

  • Miss Moneypenny☂

    hahahaha … Holy mothership….hahahaha

    • YoYo’sRobe

      Trying to keep it clean LOL

      • Miss Moneypenny ☂

        Lol gotta keep it clean yes

  • I think Theresa is having a terrible time, naturally. Like her, don’t like her, think what you will of her crime, she paid for it, and will be paying double the whole time her husband is gone. She paid the debts, and will continue to pay them herself, all the while everyone bashing her for doing her job, which is RHONJ, her book signings, and all of her public appearances. She couldn’t get a different job if she tried. She would either be followed all over by the press, or everyone would either want an autograph, or to bash her. She is making a living. That is what she pays the money back with. Cracks me up, bash her for working, bash her for having the debt, bash her for paying the debt, bash her for the crime, bash her for doing the time, and bash her for having an opinion about her bitch cousin and her prik dick husband. I guess it feels good to bash her for everything for how many years now? But God forbid she bash the guy who causes 99% of the problems that were discussed on last night’s show between her and her cousin. SHE WASN’T EVEN THERE, AND IT’S CONSIDERED HER FAULT…He’s an as*w*pe. Talking over his wife when she started trying to do business. Every single time she tried to conduct business on the show he made an ass of himself, because that IS WHAT he IS, an ass. Making it funny when her son talked about drinking and driving. Saying Victoria’s friends were taking too much advantage of the buffet line, what a dick. Talk about unkind, he personifies unkind. What he did last night in front of Theresa’s brother while Rosie and what’s her name were trying to talk Jo and Melissa into setting up a fix it lunch. Great use of his last TV time, I hope it is the last time I have to look at his UGLY FACE, whose side did he believe Jo would take? His? And with his daughter ill, too. HIS DAUGHTER!!! What is important to HIM? Everyone saying Theresa was to blame for not mentioning it, her own DAD didn’t mention it. Being a prik as*w*pe was more important to him.
    Well, I wish the very best for Victoria, whose health hangs in the balance, such a lovely young lady. Where was Rosie’s, Richie’s and what’s her name’s concern for her last night? It’s possible Theresa doesn’t even know. But, it MUST BE her fault.

    • Krista

      I agree with everything you said. Just wanted to point out thatI think Victoria’s tumors are benign, not malignant so that’s better, not that any tumor is good, but at least not life threatening.

      I especially enjoyed what you wrote about Richie, so spot on. The Wakiles & Rosie are just users and as Tre said, she doesn’t even enjoy their company so sayonara.

      • Oh, Thank God. I am so glad, thank you Krista, for telling me. I meant to Google it, but forgot. Victoria has nothing to do with anything negative on this show. She is a beautiful young lady with her own life and world, and if the thorn she carries in her life, as it seems all humans do, is benign tumors, I pray it never gets worse than that for her. I still think it was odd, to say the least, that neither of her parents or her Aunt used the little public time they had to mention it. Whatever useful research is going on etc., where to look for how citizens can help and all of the things I said and did when my Daughter was ill. So, my estimation of that part of the family, which was already low, has just hit rock bottom.

  • texussgal

    Oh 3D, what a love and breath of fresh air you are. I absolutely love coming to this site and reading your input on the topics here. Your comments about Richie are so “right on” and funny. The only thing I might add here is, family is family. At some point in time, we all need our family. And, the way Teresa is acting, one would think that Kathy & Rosie had committed the most agregious crime of the century……they did not. Kathy needs to put Richie in his place and tell him to shut up about her family. I fail to see how any of this affects him personally, unless he means having to deal with the backlash when Kathy & Rosie discuss it. Other than that, let him keep doing whatever it is he does. Try concentrating on your daughter and getting her through this most difficult time, try being a rock for your wife and quit causing trouble! You are an arrogant pr*ck U as*w*pe. Try being a man instead of a d*ckh*ad!

    • Thanks, texussgal!! You are so right, she needs to think on it and allow her heart to open and figure what they all did, including her, that messed up that part of the family. But, sometimes, unfortunately, it can not be fixed. Theresa is so up to her neck right now in responsibility, that I honestly think she can not handle one more little thing. I have a part of my siblings, not even as far away as a cousin, that have done something unforgivable. Inasmuch as it concerns being with them physically anyway. I have forgiven them, in my own heart, but they have not asked for it. And, believe me when I say, they know.
      I love your take on many subjects, too. I am so looking forward to the new seasons so we can see what we believe about that! Fun, fun, fun. This blog helped save my life, for real. I’ll tell the story someday. It’s been a while since I have, so maybe the ones who know won’t say, “Oh, God, not this novel again” No, the people here are so kind, and real. I no longer say “cyber friends” because friendship comes in many forms, and I have learned that accepting this newest form of love and thoughtfulness has opened up my heart and enlightened my life. ❤️
