Kathy Wakile May Return To ‘RHONJ’ As Starring Housewife

Will Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey once again show Kathy Wakile in the opening credits? In an interview with OK! Magazine at its So Sexy Party, posted on Thursday, Kathy, who was a recurring housewife on Season 6, said that her returning to the show as a starring housewife may be a possibility.

“You’ll have to watch and see but there’s been a lot of talk.”

It’s not clear what Kathy meant by “talk.” Does she mean there are a lot of the show’s viewers asking for her return, or does she mean that she and the show’s producers are actually in negotiation for the next season?

Even if Kathy doesn’t return for Season 7, she still has plenty to keep her busy. Besides continuing to build her new home, she’s promoting her dessert cookbook and working on her next cookbook.

“I’m still having signings with my book Indulge. I’m having so much fun meeting everybody and talking about their favorite desserts. And I’m working on my next book!”

Kathy still keeps in touch with some of the show’s other cast members. She went to OK! Magazine’s So Sexy party on Wednesday night with Jacqueline Laurita. The night prior, both Kathy and Jacqueline went to The Real Housewives of Miami‘s Lea Black’s book signing event in New Jersey.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, in March, 2015, executive producer Andy Cohen said that they have yet to officially cast anyone for the new season. He also said that he’s keeping tabs on Kathy Wakile’s cousin, the currently incarcerated Teresa Giudice, who has starred on the show since Season 1, via Dina Manzo. A few weeks later, Andy confirmed that they’re casting for the new season, but that it may take a while to finalize.

Around the same time, Teresa’s husband, Joe Giudice, spoke out to Extra! on whether Teresa will return to the show once she gets out of prison later this year. He indicated that he wants Teresa to get a big raise for her return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

“The numbers would have to be very big in order to go back so um, we’ll see … as of right now there’s nothing.”

In April, 2015, the Inquisitr reported that Amber Marchese, who joined the show last season along with Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea, admitted that she doesn’t know what’s going on with Season 7 and whether she’ll be on it.
