The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Victoria Wakile has filmed the show for a couple of seasons with her parents, Kathy Wakile and Richard Wakile. On the show, Kathy revealed that Victoria battled a brain tumor when she was very young. They were on vacation when Victoria suddenly passed out. At the hospital, they found a tumor as big as a tennis ball and she had surgery to remove it.
Earlier this year, Wakile learned that the tumor had returned. Victoria Wakile underwent surgery in April to remove it, but the family has been rather silent since then. The entire family stopped filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Victoria’s mother started focusing on her dessert products. And Victoria went back to school.
According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Victoria Wakile is now giving fans an update on how she is doing. She has made a full recovery and her mother could not be more happy and proud.
“We feel so incredibly blessed,” Kathy has revealed about her daughter.
“Victoria is feeling wonderful and strong. We were very fortunate to have the finest neurosurgeon, Dr. Neil Feldstein, perform her surgery as he did 10 years ago along with the excellent medical staff at New York Presbyterian Hospital,” she added.
Victoria Wakile has also gotten support from the fellow Bravo viewers, who have been supporting the family since the beginning. The support has continued after the family left The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
To bring joy to the family, Victoria’s mother has just published her own dessert cook book, Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet. As explained by the Inquisitr, Wakile has included 75 dessert recipes.
Even though the Wakile family left The Real Housewives of New Jersey, one would imagine that they would stay in touch with Teresa Giudice, since Teresa and Kathy are cousins. But apparently, things are not always great in New Jersey.
Recently, Wakile revealed that she had tried to reach out to the Giudice family several times after filming started for this current season. She wanted to offer support to her cousin, but Teresa wasn’t open for it.
“You can’t keep offering if it’s not accepted,” Wakile revealed about Teresa’s lack of response.
It is unknown whether Giudice reached out to Victoria at the time of her brain tumor surgery.
