Bravo gave us some snippets of what’s to come on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and hinted that we will be soon be seeing more of Kathy Wakile & Rosie Pierri.
Fans have only seen glimpses of Kathy, and her sister Rosie has only scored a couple of more quick camera appearances. We need lots more of Kathy and Rosie — what would you add to my five reason list?
1. Reality Not Fakery
Kathy and Rosie are both genuine, and give us a shot of good ol’ fashioned reality TV. They play themselves, and when drama flares, it reads as real, not as manufactured hysteria. Rosie reacts as honestly as it gets, on any Bravo franchise.
2. Good Clean Fun
Rosie is a lot of fun. She likes to laugh, joke, and lightens the mood. Kathy is secure in her skin, offers colorful commentary, and as Teresa’s cousin, spills juicy insider insight. Kathy has been a busy bee during Teresa’s time away in the slammer, and fans want to catch up on all that she has accomplished, during Bravo’s criminal break.
3. House Porn
We have yet to get a looksie at Kathy and Rich Wakile’s new house. It’s time to escape the tacky stolen Giudice decor, and bask in some legit and paid for luxury. Who isn’t dying to see Kathy’s kitchen?
4. Sugar Sugar
We haven’t gotten a peek at Kathy’s scrumptious desserts all season. She boasts a published cookbook, and has undoubtedly put that fancy new kitchen to great use. Remember those trays and trays of gorgeous sweets? Sigh.
5. Family Function
Kathy and Rosie have a sweet family dynamic, that is severely lacking on this show. Teresa and Melissa offer a forced sisterly friendship, but Kathy and Rosie are the real deal. Genuine love and respect are in short supply on the Giudice/Gorga landscape — but Kathy and Rosie deliver both. Mama Pierri is long overdue for a Bravo visit as well. Mama P. tells it like it is, and doesn’t mince words. Perhaps that’s exactly why we haven’t seen her, during Bravo’s attempt to resurrect an unrepentant felon.
Bravo promises that the remainder of Season 7 will be livelier than the snooze-fest that viewers have endured thus far. It’s time for a shot of vibrant color, and a dose of authentic family dimension. Kathy and Rosie provide both.
Catch The Real Housewives of New Jersey tonight, at 8:00 pm ET.
