“I’m lucky to be involved in the culinary world — it’s my passion — and I’m working on projects that involve that so I’m excited,” she added.
“No catfights involved,” her husband, Richie Wakile added.
Kathy says that while the experience was positive for her family, others haven’t been so lucky.
“I’ve seen the mess that has happened to other families, but thank God we’re very solid and we are who we are,” she said. “I think that when you always speak the truth, you can’t get hurt.”
Wakile acknowledged that she and her cousin, who is her former co-star aren’t regularly in touch.
“I don’t really get too, too involved, but I know they’re doing well and I’ve seen them recently during the time of loss,” she said, referencing the death of Teresa’s mother, Antonia, last month.
“We’re a strong family, so I think everybody will get through this just fine,” she said.
