Real Housewives of New Jersey - Meet Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile
The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3 is almost less than a week away and the anticipation is growing faster than a Teresa Giudice outburst waiting to happen. While ex-NJ Housewife Danielle Staub is no longer a Lee Press-On sized thorn in the sides of the remaining three NJ Housewives, that doesn't mean this season will be a walk in the park in terms of high-class drama. The promos have given us glimpses of what's to come, namely the impending war between veteran New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice and her own family members, sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and first cousin Kathy Wakile. One could say by looking at the trailers that Teresa will probably wish she had Danielle to spar with this go round, because sibiling rivalry never looks good on television. Well... not for the siblings involved, mind you.
So who are the new ladies of Franklin Lakes who will probably be responsible for Teresa's possible spike in therapy bills? Well check out the clips below to find out:
First up, we meet Melissa Gorga as she gives us an intro into her life while also setting up the conflict to come between her, Teresa and the man who is the basis of their dislike with each other: Joe Gorga, Melissa's husband and Teresa's brother. Pay attention to how Teresa looks just like her eldest daughter Gia when she was young.
Is it just me or will Melissa win over the audience this year?
The other latest addition to The Real Housewives of New Jersey is Mrs. Kathy Wakile, who looks like she could be Teresa's sister because they look so much alike. After seeing Kathy's 'crib,' it seems like her family will bring a lot of the comedy (and possible ire) to the show this year. Kathy's husband Rich seems to not mind cameras being in the bedroom as he jokingly tries to get Kathy in the bed with him, while her son Joseph seems to have a weapons collection that would make even Jason Voorhees blush with pride. Take a look for yourselves:
Kathy could easily become a favorite of mine this season, but looks can be deceiving... Let's hope for the best.
So are you guys ready to welcome these new Real Housewives of New Jersey with open arms? Or are you already plotting to stalk them on Twitter with hate? I'm praying you are leaning towards the former...
The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres May 16th @9/8c with a 90 minute season premiere on Bravo.
