Kathy Wakile        

Real Housewife of New Jersey; Owner of a Dessert Line

Kathy Wakile, born Katherina Pierri, is an Italian-American reality television personality. She currently stars in the hit Bravo TV show The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which features the lives of her and her family members, including Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. Her young sister Rosie is also featured on the show.

Kathy joined the show's third season in May 2011. She is put in the middle of confrontations between her cousin, Teresa and her cousin-in-law, Melissa. The show mainly depicts how Kathy deals with her kids' growing up and her wish to open a restaurant one day. In Season 3, Kathy feuded with Caroline and Teresa. In Season 4, Kathy only feuds with Teresa.

She has introduced three product lines since joining the show. She has a new dessert line called Dolci della Dea (Goddess Sweets). In December 2011, she introduced the Goddess Eye jewelry line that gives a portion of sales to the National Brain Tumor Society. In February 2012, Kathy released her new ready-to-pour cocktail, Red Velvet Cosmo, based on one of her favorite desserts, red velvet cake. The drink won a medal in a national tasting competition.

Kathy currently resides in Wayne, New Jersey with her husband, Richard "Rich" Wakile, and their two children, Victoria and Joseph. Kathy and Victoria frequently participate in events that raise awareness for brain cancer, an illness they take close to heart, as Victoria needed an operation to remove a benign brain tumor.
