Hi, everyone! This episode was a lot about all of our new endeavors and it was nice to see what everyone is working on.

First of all, major congrats to Kathy and her delicious cannoli kits! If you haven’t tried them, you must. She pulled off a great event at Dylan’s Candy Bar. My kids would be happy to live there from now on. Joe can’t get enough of the Slippery Nipples, of course, LOL! We had a blast at Kathy’s event and are always here to support her.

And congratulations to Teresa for the launch her of Skinny Italian Foods line. I’ve tried the pastas and they are so delish!

Jacqueline’s speech at the autism fundraiser had us all crying. Not a dry eye on the entire basketball court. It took a lot of courage for her to stand up and tell Nicholas’ story. She was brave and delivered her speech beautifully.

I’m glad you got to see the lunch with my mother-in-law. It was nice having all of us together and it definitely felt like we were becoming a family again. And for those of you asking, yes of course I hugged and kissed my mother-in-law hello.   NOTE:  Who was askin’???

Finally, you get to meet my music manager Johnny Wright! I have to admit, my nerves got the better of me when I was singing “Never Let Me Go” in my studio for Johnny and Justin Thorne, the songwriter and producer. Johnny is the real deal.

He’s worked with Britney, ‘N Sync, Justin Timberlake, Akon, and The Jonas Brothers.

I really wanted to impress him. The fact that he’s interested in me at all was so exciting — and terrifying. I had a lot riding on that recording session. It got better once I got over my nerves, trust me, or he would have walked out and never looked back.  NOTE:  Johnny must have some hearing problems!

When Johnny suggested my going to Orlando for vocal coaching, I was all for it. I’d never had any formal training and have just used what I’ve got. I’ll take any expert advice I can get! My attitude is, I’m grateful for every minute of Johnny’s guidance. I’m happy to learn and ready to go! Thanks, Johnny and Justin, for your faith in me.   NOTE:  REALLY??? MeGo has never had a vocal coach???  That is hard to believe!!

One last thing in this episode: the talk with Penny. Joe and I thought we were going out to a nice dinner. I had no idea she’d be there. We were just as surprised as you were to see her sitting at the bar.

During our talk, I tried to act like a lady. I don’t come at anyone guns blazing. That’s not how you get anywhere in life. Penny was pretty open with us about who she’d been talking to about me, but she is hardly a reliable source. As you can see I was very skeptical about her. I asked my questions and she gave me her answers. Whether those answers were just another flat out lie, we didn’t know. There was Penny’s side and Teresa’s side. The truth was probably somewhere in the middle.   NOTE:  The word “lady” is synonymous with MeGo… **cough, cough**

Penny’s news that night wasn’t earth-shattering for Joe and me. When I decided I was going to let go of the past issues with Teresa, I pretty much knew what I was moving on from.

It all comes out in good time in the upcoming episodes. Keep watching to see how everything plays out.

Here’s a link to the finished version of “Never Let Me Go”. I’m so happy with how it turned out. I absolutely love this song!   NOTE:  Would rather listen to and watch the Orlando version!  Unfortunately, ClearChannel issued “take down” notices!!

RHONJ Richie pg

Hello friends!

Rich and I just got back from a wonderful weekend. We were in CT at Mohegan Sun where I was the judge for the final round of the Chef Battle in The Shops concourse as part of their Restaurant Week, and then we were on to Skytop in the Poconos for a dessert demo with my “Dolce Della Dea” Cannoli Kit — it was awesome! Thanks always for your support and for watching our show, especially as it moves into this season’s final episodes!  Couldn’t the “Shops” find a REAL culinary expert to judge the ChefBattle?  Maybe TreeJoodice?  Oh well… ya get what ya pay for!!  

AND…we give the whereabouts of KomaKathy 847,362 Kens…

Now on to this week’s episode.

I was so excited about the Dylan’s Candy Bar event with my cannoli kits. Yes, a little nervous because it was such a big deal for me; only a few years ago I was (and still am) a proud housewife, and now my delicious cannoli are being sampled and enjoyed at a nationally respected sweets store. Suffice to say, I needn’t have worried — my incredible, edible, cannoli were a hit! It was so nice to have a crowd full of mothers, fathers, children — people who I never met before telling me how delicious the cannoli were as well as asking tons of questions about my life and love of cooking. But where were my family and friends?! Fashionably late, that’s how they roll. I was so happy they eventually all showed up to taste and congratulate — that meant a lot and I appreciated the support.   NOTE:  Uh, heeeelllloooo KomaKathy!   Doubt very much that Dylan’s CandyBar is gonna carry your cannoli kits… they obviously simply allowed you to demonstrate there.

BTW: You can get my cannoli kits directly from my website www.kathywakile.com and use the promotional code RHONJ13 for special savings.  NOTE:  KomaK musta been booted outta QVC… the last time KomaK pushed her cannolis on QVC was almost a year ago!

I thought it was bold of Jacqueline to decide to face her fear of public speaking and talk to a large crowd about the very personal journey she has been on with her family, and about her son, Nicholas, who is on the Autism Spectrum. Through her strength to speak about her own challenges and successes, it helps others understand there is hope. I was so touched by her ability to get past the struggles she had internally and with others, move forward, and give a speech that I saw really touch people in the most genuine way. Jacqueline is one of the kindest people and only deserves the best — her speech moved me and many of the audience to tears. I was so proud of her!  BLAH, BLAH, BLAH…

Definitely keep watching…some unexpected twists and turns are still coming.  Uh… a five-year-old could come up with more compelling story lines worthy of watching.

Keep It Sweet,

NOTE:  Really figured that KomaK’s crack PR team would have stopped her by now!  Doesn’t KomaKathy know that “keep it sweet” was the motto of FLDS leader Warren Jeffs… the guy who is now serving a life term in prison for what he did to his underage ‘wives’?  Yes… Jeffs wanted all of his wives, including the 12-year-olds, to accept everything done to them by “keeping it sweet”!!  Please do your own research and look it up if you have any doubts re this.  Let’s see if KomaK changes her BravoBlog closing… but, she (just like ALL the other Housewives) ‘doesn’t read SH,’ so how would she even know about this!!   

Obviously, like most of the Housewives, KomaKathy knows nothing of what’s going on in the REAL world!


 
Xoxo Kathy
