The two were very accepting and Rosie’s niece even cried. Watch the above clip of Rosie talking to Andy Cohen about her experience coming out to Kathy’s kids.
4. Rosie Is Kathy Wakile’s Biggest Cheerleader
We’ve known Kathy Wakile as a regular on the RHONJ, but she’s dialed back to a part-time character on the show. No matter what though, she has a main role in Rosie’s life. Even though Rosie doesn’t have anything in the works, she’s the first one to back up her sister’s cooking ventures, telling Wetpaint:
I don’t have anything coming out, but I want to mention my sister does have her cookbook for desserts, called Indulge, coming up. Pre-order in September. It’s going to be awesome. She took so much time with every recipe. I see her slaving in her kitchen making sure everything is perfect. She has great dessert recipes lined up for everyone, and with every recipe there’s a nice little story about our family, about her family, about her in-laws, about my aunts and uncles.
5. She Has Gone Through a Massive Transformation
Throughout her time on the RHONJ, we have seen Rosie go from big Rosie to skinny Rosie. On season 6, we see a Rosie who’s quit smoking and goes to the gym. Rosie told Wetpaint:
My first step was to kick the habit of smoking cigarettes. I did that while I was out there in Arizona. When I came back I decided to start going to the gym. I was always a pretty healthy eater, but my metabolism doesn’t work like everyone else’s. I got that fat gene, I guess, you know what I’m saying? The chubby gene [laughs]. It’s a friggin’ bad gene, though … And I still gotta work hard, every day. I go to the gym every morning. And I’m sure a lot of thin people do the same, I’m not saying that they don’t. To get to your goals, you have to eat right you have to constantly remind yourself to drink enough water, to take your vitamins.
