Once she learned the show was RHONJ, she was hesitant to move forward in the interview process.

“I said, ‘Well, I don’t think this is for me,’ because I did know most of the ladies and I really didn’t have much in common with them,” Wakile tells

Teresa Giudice makes it clear that she has no plans of making amends with her former co-star and cousin Kathy Wakile. Per Giudice, Wakile joined RHONJ behind her back, which Wakile denies. She does however wish that she had the chance to tell Giudice herself before producers broke the news.

Once she learned the show was RHONJ, she was hesitant to move forward in the interview process.

“I said, ‘Well, I don’t think this is for me,’ because I did know most of the ladies and I really didn’t have much in common with them,” Wakile tells Bravo in a recent interview. “So, I thought at the time [we didn’t have much in common]. And I didn’t want to have any drama in our family life.”

Still, Wakile decided to do the interview, thinking nothing would come out of it. Even if she was chosen, she already made up in her mind that she wouldn’t do the show.

Producers told Teresa Giudice about Kathy Wakile being cast and it didn’t go well

During the interview process, Wakile didn’t tell Giudice about being vetted. Because she figured she wouldn’t be cast or do the show at all, she figured telling Giudice was counterproductive.

But Giudice found out from producers and called Wakile in a fit of rage.

“She was told before I was told,” Wakile says. “They told her that they were seriously looking at me and I didn’t know that…Bravo told Teresa that they actually cast me and she called me and said, ‘How dare you?’…she wouldn’t let it go and was like, ‘How come you didn’t tell me?’”
