The Real Housewives of New Jersey continued to document the turmoil between the Giudices and Gorgas tonight, but luckily there weren't any confrontations that could further drive a deeper wedge amongst the warring factions. That doesn't mean there wasn't any drama to pick and analyze over, however.
After reading an interview Kathy Wakile had with Zap2It'sJethro Nededog, I couldn't help but renew my respect for this woman despite the fact that she hasn't really done anything to make me want to throw my remote to the TV screen. She hasn't been as vocal as Melissa Gorga has when it comes to the beef with Teresa Giudice, which is working well in her favor. On the other hand, Kathy's innocent demeanor hasn't won over Caroline Manzo, who did not appreciate that Kathy brought the Gorga/Giudice battle to the Brownstone aka her "home."
Kathy reaching out to Caroline was, in some way, ill-advised, but only in the sense that she should have stopped at the apology and kept it moving. The inner turmoil with the war between Joey and Teresa shouldn't have been brought up and Caroline's response, while funny as hell, was as appropriate as it could get, because there was nothing that Kathy could have said to change Caroline's mind on the subject at hand. Despite Kathy not making things with Caroline any simpler, she was right in not worrying about getting Caroline's approval.
