Kathy Wakile

Kathy Wakile is one busy lady! “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star has been hard at work building her dream kitchen and we hear it’s almost done. In addition to her construction project, Kathy’s first project, a dessert cookbook titled, “Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet,” a sweet cookbook endeavor, is just the beginning for this reality star, turned entrepreneur. Kathy isn’t slowing down, and is set to hit the ground running with a brand new creative project.

All About the Tea is excited to reveal the delightful news, an exciting new venture for this RHONJ star. An insider spills that Kathy has landed her own unique cooking show! Our source reveals that Kathy is currently in the process to begin shooting a pilot for her new show.

Kathy’s new cooking show will focus on “Food, Family & Fun!” The New Jersey “Housewife” will take viewers across America, as she unearths family traditions and recipes. Kathy will take viewers on a journey as she explores the background origins of family favorites, and teaches us how to whip up the same delish dishes in our very own kitchens.

A cooking show would seem to be a natural creative progression for Wakile, jumping off from the success of her first published cookbook, which focused on indulgent dessert recipes, served in small portions. Book sales have been smashing, with the book hitting #1 on Amazon’s dessert baking pre-order list, and has since landed on the Publisher’s Weekly bestsellers list.

All About the Tea is thrilled to be the first to announce the news, and we extend a HUGE congratulations to Kathy!

    Her husband said she smells like “fish”… I wonder if it was because of the cooking.
    I’ll leave this right here.

  • A huge CONGRATS to Kathy!! She deserves her own cooking show more than anyone. She’s a real cook and makes everything from scratch. God bless her and I wish her much success.

  • Yolie

    Standing ovation for this great news, Tea. Kathy is very deserving of the honor and I will be watching. Congrats.

  • Jennymckitty

    I am so happy for Kathy. The concept for the show sounds unique and interesting. I’ll certainly watch it.

    • Marsbars09

      Me too!
      Hi Miss Jenny! I haven’t heard from you in a long while. How are you doing?

      • Jennymckitty

        Hey Mars! Great to see you❤️ I have a lovely cold and laryngitis. Husband is enjoying the fact that I can’t talk. I’m grateful that I can’t smell all the vinegar…dying our second dozen fake eggs. How are you?

        • Marsbars09

          Oh no! Well I’m going to pass on some of my famous Campbell’s chicken noodle soup to you so it can help you recuperate. 😉
          I’m currently at the auto shop getting my oil changed. Great way to pass the time with my peeps. 🙂

          • Jennymckitty

            Thanks for the chicken noodle soup. I see we have the same recipe. I cook a lot but I’ve never made chicken noodle soup from scratch in my life. Hubby just brought me a slice of Buffalo chicken pizza from a local pizza place…yum! Enjoy your down time. The cats say Hi.

  • Chloe

    Fantastic news! I am very happy for Kathy. I’m a huge supporter of her and her family. I will tune in.

  • WestCoastFeed

    What good news! Congratulations to Kathy. This is a great idea for her. She is such a warm and friendly woman that people respond to her in kind. This should be an easy pilot to sell. I’m looking forward to watching it.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Buuurn…eat your heart out Teresa! I love this idea. Kathy is a natural for her own cooking show. This demonstrates hard work and dedication pays off.

    • Marsbars09

      Exactly! I just posted a similar comment.

      • RealitytvJunkie


    • MorningYawn

      And she is a real person so she should be engaging h with her guests!

  • CNN

    Congratulations Kathy. Much success to you on the new show.

  • Marsbars09

    Alright Kathy! I’m so proud of her.
    You see, Kathy is a fine example of if you work hard enough for something it will come to fruition. From what we know Kathy didn’t lie, steal, cheat, or scam her way to reach her goal. She is building a solid business empire unlike the house of cards her cousin built.

    • dj j

      So you think her attacks on her cousin, and calling Teresa’s father a “coward” were ok?

      • cait

        The Gorgas robbed Kathy’s family, blind, in some deal over a shoe-mender’s shop, the Gorga parents TOOK from them, with a promise (NOT) to buy !

  • TopGear

    Thumbs up all the way. Kathy is a class act.

    • dj j

      a class act wouldn’t secretly sign up on a show in order to take down your own family member..And your hunger so great for fame, that you would copy her, right down to doing cookbooks. I think she is a horrible excuse for a human being.

  • A Reader

    Congratulations Kathy!!!! Oh boy is TG going to be jealous and pissed off even more at your hard earned success. 🙂

  • Sandy Mersinas

    Happy for Kathy!!!!! Does anyone know what channel it would be on??

  • pixntrix

    Congrats to Kathy her desserts always looks so yummy. Teresa’s head is probably exploding about right now.

  • twifan2

    YEAH! Someone who actually can, knows, loves cooking-is getting a show of their own! 🙂
    Good Luck Kathy! All the best! 🙂
    & you know Kathy, nothing says ‘thank you’ like some homemade sprinkle cookies! 😉

  • twifan2

    Did anyone else hear that KaBoom sound coming out of Danbury this morning? 🙂

    • Guardian

      Can you imagine Twi? News at 5 tonight – one woman riot breaks out at Danbury. Talk about “just desserts!”

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      OMG, that’s a hilarious visual!!!

    • italiano bambino


    • T’s Martini Lounge

      Oh you read my mind!

    • Bwahahahaha!!

  • Anne Green

    Good for Kathy!!! Does anybody know what her educational background is? I have never really followed her personally so I don’t know where she received her training as a cook/chef. Just curious.

    • Marsbars09

      As far as I know Kathy is a beautician by trade. I take it she learned her cooking & baking technique from her wonderful mother.

  • itsjustme

    Good for her! I’m very happy for her, Atleast it isn’t some 2 bit video on youtube…lol

  • honeybunny

    I’m definitely watching. I hope her husband is on there. He is funny lol

  • honeybunny

    Can you Imagine Teresa’s reaction when she’s finds out this news while she’s sitting in prison?…

  • italiano bambino

    i am happy for her. If i get a change i watch it

  • MorningYawn

    Good for you Kathy! I hope it’s wildly successful.

    And a huge “nah-ne-nah-ne-boo-boo” to what’s her face in the clink. Just desserts!!!

  • Ava

    Not a fan of Kathy but i am happy that she’s doing well..same for Melissa, at least they aren’t doing anything illegal unlike someone else we know 🙂

    • Shelly Jones

      Yes they are Joe & Melissa…but Katfish and Repulsive Ritchie..maybe not so much. But the are all filthy animals to me. The whole RHONJ Crew.

  • doggiedaddy

    FYI a Pilot is a test program – a trial run.
    And I notice there’s no mention of a network.

    It’s most likely that she’s paying someone/a production
    company, to record this for her and she’ll shop it around to various cable

    Glad she’s doing OK but it’s not really a done deal.
    (But I bet it still pisses TG off!)

  • Shelly Jones

    Everything and Everyone RHONJ repulses me. Especially the Gorga’s & the Wakilies.

    • Susie Whats Her Name

      But you read blogs about them?

      • Shelly Jones

        I read this blog period. I don’t seek them out.

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    In a related story, uncontrollable hysterical screaming and screeching can be heard from Danbury, CT. Ideas, anyone?

    • cait

      Sugar Overload, perhaps !

  • Kace316

    Will not watch anything she is on; or her disgusting husband. While I”m at it I would not watch anything with Missy and Joe Gorga either.

    • dj j

      I agree with you! This woman’s claim to fame is secretly getting on a reality show, only because you promised to “bring it” against your own family member. And you certainly did. On the first episode, you hear Teresa’s brother call her garbage, and Kathy trying to make it sound like Teresa left her baby unattended during the brawl, these scumbags started..at their own child’s christening. What animals. Kathy can pretend to be nice all she wants. I’d like all of you to put yourself in Teresa’s place, and have your own family go against you in order to get their own stardom. I think it is horrible

      • cait

        The baby WAS left unattended at the Christening, as has been proved over and over again !

  • Norrth

    Love that things are going well for her. Poor Kathy took a little heat for joining the show. GOOD FOR HER! She has worked hard and deserves this shot, IMO.

  • nan/4

    This is such good news. I’m so happy for Kathy and I wish her much success. I’ll be watching….Mazel Tov to you Kathy! 🙂

  • misstc

    Congrats! Kathy! I will definitely tune in to catch a recipe for my sweet tooth!

  • DSS

    Good for her!!!!!!
    Bad for Tre!!!!!!!!

  • cait

    The title’s a doozy ! “All the Recipes My Cousin Didn’t Steal From My Mother”

    • MindStretch

      Cait! Hey girlybugs. Hope you’re feeling better. I miss ya

      • cait

        Hi MS, Very grateful for your support, last week ! Health-wise checks still ongoing, b looking posiive !
        My lovely brother took his leave on Sunday, TOO feckin’ mean to hang around and buy us all a drink for his birthday on 1 April ! The Fool was on us ! Thank you MS, was so low when I got your reply, and what a difference you made to me !

  • MindStretch

    Congrats to Katfish! …can you believe her husband said on national yv that “fish” comment. I watched an episode of “Chopped” and Kathy was the first to get chopped during the appetizer round; idk perhaps it was a terrible fluke or basket. WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS: where is Kathy and Richie getting the $$$ to build that home???? No did, but I though before the show Richie was a gas station owner with no gas (the whole ExxonMobil check bouncing)…) Before the show, I heard they were also close to foreclosure.

    Good for them if true; someone has to replace the Martha Stewart show

  • TopGear

    Great job, Kathy! You’re a winner in my eyes. I’m rooting for you and will be watching.

  • Kathy Wakile is the next Martha Stewart! As she builds her lifestyle brand, I hope it includes a bedding line.

    • Trippinhhard

      I’m happy for Kathy, I would eat at their table anytime they would have me..
      Her food looks so delicious
      Hey Doc

      • Yes ma’am!!

        Hi sis 🙂 How is everything going on your end? Hope you’re well.

  • MidwestMiddie

    Best Wishes to Kathy.

  • Beverly Bookman DeRosa

    This is awesomeness at it’s best!!!

  • Carmen Mitchell

    I find this story hard to believe. What network is sponsoring this?
