Rest In Peace, My Friend- Nada Kohm 1958-2018

35564304_1777367179009834_8046124387239198720_nAs I sit here trying to think of all the things I want to say, I feel numb. I’m in shock. 

Last night at 9 pm, I received a text from Nada’s phone saying that it was an emergency and that I had to call right away. 

My friend has been in pain for a lot of years, and I spoke to her yesterday morning and she sounded really bad. Worse than I have ever heard her. Upon receiving the text, I thought; “Oh no, she must need me to call her an ambulance.” 

But when I called her phone, it wasn’t my friend on the other end. It was her daughter saying that my friend had just died in her sleep. 

The paramedics were there and there was nothing they could do to save her; she was too far gone.  

Nada Kohm was my best friend. We spoke everyday, if not every week, on the phone since about 2011. 

We would talk to each other for hours, and it felt like no time was ever going by at all. 

We would talk about our shows, and our lives, and this crazy place. 

We would laugh, get mad, and laugh some more. 

Nobody will ever understand the amount of stuff we shared. 

She brought so much happiness into my life. I can’t stop the waves and the tears from coming down. 

Nada was such a good person. She was sweet, she was funny, she was witty, and she was always my voice of reason. She just had such a good nature about her, and she was so patient. She did have a bit of a feisty side, but I don’t think we would have gotten along so well had she not. 

She said exactly what was on her mind all the time, and I respected that about her. She loved others. 

I spoke to her yesterday, the same day she passed. I spoke to her all the time. I can’t believe that I will never speak or hear her voice again. It hurts so much. Every time I would pick up the phone to call someone I would instinctively call her. 

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve said; “Ive got to call Nada.” We just had a  connection.

I met Nada right after her husband passed. He had lung cancer and she nursed him till his last breath. She was in a very dark place after he died, and I would just listen to her cry for a good two years at least.

 I would always encourage her to be strong and that she had to be strong for her daughter. 

And after a couple of years, she changed. She was strong and I told her that all the time. 

She had a lot of health issues for quite some years. She would have a lot of good days and bad days. 

But she continued to live for her daughter. After her husband passed, it was just the two of them. If I could just know one thing, it would be to know that she’s with him now. That would give me so much peace in my heart. He was her soul mate, and she was never the same after he passed. 

I am so thankful that I was able to tell her how much she meant to me the other day. How much I appreciated her and our friendship, and that I loved her. She always said: “you’re my only friend, Jen” and it would always touch my heart, I wish I would have told her that. Nada always stuck up for me no matter what. Whether I was right or wrong. And never because I prompted her to. Because she genuinely was my friend. I’m gonna miss her so much. I’ve never lost a friend like this before. How do you go from speaking to someone every day to never again? 

I look forward to the day I will be able to think of her and be able to smile. But that’s not today. My heart is broken. It’s shattered. I have no more friend. No more confidant. Someone to laugh with, get mad with, cry with. Share all of our hurts, our disappointments, and our joys.  

There is a hole in my heart. My friend is gone. This hurts so bad. I feel so alone. I’m in a daze.

I will always remember her and the friendship she gave me. The words keep flowing and yet I still can’t say enough about her. I will forever be thankful for all the good she brought into my life and everything we shared. There will never be another her. I am mourning, yet I celebrate her, and all that she brought into my life and any of yours. 

“Show up for people. Offer what you can. Be unselfish. Love people when they need it, even when you feel they don’t deserve it.  Be a healer. Be kind. 

Show up for people. Because when you’re hurting you’ll want someone to show up for you.” — Alex Elle

She was one of those people that always showed up for me. 

I LOVE YOU NADA, with my whole heart. I can still hear your voice. And I dread the day I will forget what it sounds like. 


Just a little message there…

I want you to know that things will get better. Maybe you were abused or had a rough childhood. Maybe you lost someone near and dear to you. Maybe you’re just down on yourself.  Maybe the stresses of life are overwhelming you, or you just don’t feel like anything is going your way. I just want you to know that I, too, have been where you are. I, too, have suffered abuse in my life and been taken advantage of by people. And even though I have been through it too, I can’t pretend that I know what it feels like to be in your skin or to feel the pain you have experienced in your life. I do know that it can and will get better. I could write you a map but it would take you to the wrong place, because we are each on our own journey. But what I do know is that with unimaginable pain comes immeasurable strength. I, too, have thought that I didn’t deserve any more than the cards I was dealt. But I can tell you that I was wrong. When I couldn’t find kindness, people like you have showed me kindness. I know that you have a great heart and you deserve all the love that this world has to give. I just want you to know that if you ever need an ear to listen..that I don’t judge you, criticize you, or want anything from you. Actually, that’s not true. I want you to know that you’re not alone. And that we can sometimes let the ugliness of this world and its ugly people consume us, but there is ten times more beauty than ugly. They might get us down for a bit, but I have faith and truly believe that you can and always will see brighter days. Be strong, xx ♥️♥️♥️

The Real Colours of the New Jersey housewives!


Everyone has heard by now that Teresa and Joe Giudice have been sentenced. Joe received 41 months and Teresa 15 months on fraud charges. Teresa’s cast mates have been taking the opportunity to speak out on the subject. Some were supportive, while others were pretending to be. But were any of them gloating about her punishment?

**UPDATED: Since writing this post Teresa has served her sentence and Joe is currently serving his.

The following information comes from what I have witnessed on social media, from Teresa’s “friends” and “family,” and also ex-castmates, that were possibly working together to knock Teresa off her throne and to hopefully nail the coffin shut on the Giudices. I’ll start with Kathy and Jacqueline.

Kathy and Jacqueline have never had a close relationship, up until now. When Jacqueline and Teresa were being friendly again during the season 5 reunion, we saw Jacqueline pretend to sleep when it was Kathy’s turn to speak. Not exactly supportive and friendly.

What then brought the two so close together? For starters, they were both there after demoted from the show. And at that same time, both were not welcome to film with the other ladies. Some might say they came together because of their mutual hate for Teresa.

10726772_715931898486706_782441763_n 10728984_715931838486712_629673023_n

Kathy and Jacqueline seem to have some of the viewers fooled as to how “kind” and “sweet,” they actually are. In my humble opinion, these two are vindictive. They were not happy that Teresa was getting all the attention and that she wanted nothing to do with them.

Teresa and Joe appeared in an interview with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live,” the day after they were sentenced. It was a very emotional time. They barely had time to process their thoughts and feelings. 

When the host Andy Cohen asked Teresa if any of her cast mates had reached out during this difficult time, she responded that Dina and Amber had.

Teresa told Andy that she had seen Jacqueline’s name on her phone, but she did not have time to look at all of her text messages; as there were just too many.

Kathy “apparently” texted Teresa also. During this time of grief, Kathy decided that if her name wasn’t publicly mentioned on Watch What Happens Live, that it was in fact the end of the world and that viewers wouldn’t view her as the “supportive cousin.”


Kathy seems to believe that the world revolves around her and if she didn’t get a mention from her cousin, (who is going through the worst time in her life right now) then that justifies her in lashing out.

Teresa and Kathy do not have a close relationship anymore. I can’t imagine why. Kathy and Jacqueline have been on a social media frenzy, retweeting any compliments they get from viewers. They don’t like the fact that Teresa is so loved, when they obviously have so much disdain for her.


I beg to differ. Jacqueline was crying on last week’s episode; explaining to viewers that Teresa was like a sister to her, and how bad she felt for her.

Jacqueline also said, that she had hoped Teresa would have let her “be there for her.”  She said that she reached out to Teresa,via text.

You can watch that video here:

Jacqueline knows that not all the viewers are on social media.  And I’ve followed all the ladies of RHONJ on social media since the first season. Jacqueline’s behaviour on the social media is not the same behaviour we see on housewives.

Jacqueline immediately began favouriting negative comments about Teresa after that. It all seems fake, conniving and sneaky to me.


If this is how Jacqueline treats a sister, I think it’s pretty clear why Teresa would not want a relationship with her.


How does this viewer think Jacqueline cares for what Teresa is going through based on those favourites? You can’t blame the viewers, Jacqueline was crying to be there for Teresa on the episode! And not all the fans know how Twitter works.

There is more back story to this, like I previously stated, I have been watching the interactions on Twitter for a long time.

Jacqueline had “allegedly” been working with a group of people including Kim Granatell ( an elderly lady who has had a cameo on the show) Monica Chacon (a lawyer who has had a confrontation with Teresa) Tom Murro (a gossip writer who crashes parties and uses these women allegedly as sources for his gossip writing) to “take down Teresa.”

Straight from the horse’s mouth, Kim G began tweeting that Jacqueline could have been involved with feeding the government information about Teresa.

Watch the video below, where you will clearly hear Monica Chacon admit on HLN that she was directly working with the federal government collecting information to indict Teresa and Joe Giudice.

Watch it here:

Monica Chacon was involved. So, if Jacqueline Laurita was not involved, why would Kim G begin to sing and dance all over Twitter about how happy Monica, Kim, and EVEN Jacqueline Laurita were right after Teresa was arrested?

Here are some tweets from Kim G claiming that Jacqueline was a part of the take down. These tweets are not MY opinions. These are straight from Kim’s Twitter account.


Kim admits her conspiracy to take Teresa down and  “Jacqueline will be thrilled.”


Kim G and Monica were never close with Teresa at any point, ever. But I do know of a few people who were. Jacqueline Laurita being one of them. Who possibly could have fed Kim G and Monica all that close and personal information they would have needed?

Here’s a direct quote from Monica Chacon to Radar Online where she admits to working with the government.

I don’t think I need to spell it out for anyone. You’re all smart people. How would any of us feel if we were suspicious of a friend possibly being involved with a situation like this. Is that why Jacqueline is usually crying in a lot of episodes about Teresa? Maybe over, oh.. I don’t know..GUILT? 

Teresa has never claimed to be perfect and she has served her time. But imagine wondering if someone could be that evil?

Teresa tried to forgive Jacqueline this season and we all saw how well that went. 

Melissa stated on Watch What Happens Live this week, that Jacqueline constantly talks about the housewives, and that she is always in everyone’s business. But what kind of people would take pleasure in taking four kids away from their parents?

After Teresa’s sentence, Kim G went on to post more tweets.



This kind of behaviour from grown women is disturbing. None of them have clean pasts or hands either. Jacqueline can say her bankruptcy is different from Teresa’s, because hers was a business bankruptcy, but if you read the actual documents, there is a lot of “alleged” suspicious activity going on there. Private planes, buying all family members new vehicles, and there were “alleged” embezzlements too. All you have to do is google it.



Jacqueline continues to converse with Tom Murro daily as Kim G put it.


The only thing that rocks in Kim’s world are the ones shifting around in her head. Tom was recently accused of crashing an event and stealing merchandise from the party. Yet, he likes to throw stones at Teresa for “stealing” millions, when in fact the Giudices were never accused of “theft” only falsifying documents.


Wow, talk about throwing stones when you live in a glass house! I urge you all not to support any of these people and their bad behaviours. They are not good people in my opinion. They look to hurt others at any cost for their own personal agendas.


Yes Kathy, everyone is trying to steal your joy, how fitting. But don’t forget what they really believe and want you to believe…


If by fresh you mean resentful, vindictive, hurtful, mean, self-serving, noise pollution, then yes I agree.

Kathy responds to Rich calling woman’s deceased father a pedophile!


Another day, another drama in Jersey! Yesterday we posted a story about Rich Wakile calling a woman’s deceased father a pedophile! You can read it here:

The internet site Twitter was buzzing about the comment to @Tb5977 on twitter that her deceased father was in fact a pedophile.



The reason that Rich had such a strong reaction to this tweeter was over this tweet she had made.



None of the comments seemed to be in favour of Rich Wakile’s behaviour. This is not the first time Richard has taken shots at fans of the show, but then he usually deletes his comments in order to appear innocent.

Kathy must have got wind yesterday about the situation and she had this to say to anyone who has an issue with her husband and his reckless comment!




What a poor example for Kathy to not only condone Rich’s (overboard) reaction to his critics, but it shows her kids it’s ok to say horrible things to people as long as they deserve it, and you feel they started it. Bravo, Kathy!

I wonder what Teresa Giudice would think about Kathy condoning Rich’s words towards women, since Teresa has been on his receiving end before.


The only man who is a coward is Rich Wakile for not taking responsibility for his words and apologizing. A coward, who says horrible things to random women then he deletes it.


Yes indeed, show some class. Say what you want about Teresa, but I have never seen her respond with hate to any mean Twitter comments. She gets her fair share too.

Once again please I urge you all to join me and pray for the Wakiles. They need it most.


Thanks for Reading..until next time..

Richard Wakile calls woman’s deceased father a pedophile!


It looks like another ex cast mate of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is (once again) having a Twitter Meltdown!! A few fans of the show were having a conversation about the Wakiles, and how they would not be famous if it wasnt for their cousin the breakout star of #RHONJ-Teresa Giudice!

Rich did not take to the comment very well, and he took it to a new low~ Rich decided to attack the tweeter’s (@TB5977) twitter avi of her as a child with her now deceased Father and he has caused quite the controversy with fans of the show.  – See Below.


Here is  the comment that was made that set Rich Wakile off the rails. He then made a statement back about her father being a pedophile, which he later deleted but was captured by screenshot.


In regards to @TB5977 ‘s Twitter avi.


The picture is of @TB5977 ‘s deceased father who passed away when she was 9 years old. Very odd to have such a strong reaction to such a little comment. The crime doesn’t fit the punishment. A very cruel response. I have also lost my Father and would be very upset if someone were to make such a nasty comment in regards to his character. For the record, Rich has also lost his Father.

Tweeter’s became upset (including myself) and sent Rich some tweets, in hopes he would apologize.






He still has not apologized.

Rosie Pierri who is Rich Wakile’s sister in law was on her own twitter timeline having a meltdown and blaming the fans again, who she claims are all angry and hateful!




Apparently it is ok to call people a D*ck and a p*ssy and someone’s deceased father a pedophile on a Sunday, but not ok for anyone to say anything else.


Yes, Rosie we will all make sure to take advice from you on how our hearts need to be examined while you and your brother in law continue to spread hate. Thank you for the tip. Instead of a proper apology which anyone with a conscious would be compelled to do, Rich made it clear she got what she deserved.


Rosie and the tweeter had this to say and I have to say this is the only advice I will be taking from her.


I ask you all to take a second and pray for Rosie and Rich Wakile. They need it more than any of us.

Rosie known to have many violent outburst in the past, also made it clear she would meet this tweeter @leopard_Man_ any time and any place, so she can physically attack him!! Examine yourselves people because the fans are the problem according to her logic.


UPDATED**** Kathy Wakile must have seen what twitter was saying about her husband and had this to say in response!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey brings out the crazy on Twitter! Part 2 :)


Ex housewife of New Jersey Danielle Staub launched an all out attack on all her former castmates! The most confusing part is that Danielle was asked by Andy Cohen to return to the show, yet she declined three times! Not sure what her problem is, but why return to a show now when you hate all the other women?!


Now that Danielle is ready to rejoin the show she has been on a twitter campaign to get fans to see the “truth” about all the others.


Danielle telling fans that Jacqueline Laurita told her that Dina and Caroline did not speak to one of their brothers’ Joe for 12 yrs until his son passed away. This is beyond sad to repeat. True or not.


Danielle says Jac told her Dina spends her charity money on herself. (old rumour)  Dina has proved otherwise with records in the past that this was not true.


Danielle talking about Jacqueline’s own bankruptcy problems, and that it’s Jacqueline’s “Karma”


Here you can see Danielle interacting with fans, telling them that Jac is a “wacko” so if that’s the case, why should we believe anything that Jac has told her ?? It’s obvious Jac likes to stir up trouble and lie.

Danielle wasn’t done, she decided to take shots at other Housewives including Dina, Teresa, Melissa, Amber, even the twins who just joined the show!

Danielle telling fans that Dina’s only story line this season will be Danielle, that will be interesting to see, if it happens…which we’ve seen in previews isn’t the case.


According to Danielle, all of the New Jersey Housewives lives are in fact her business.

Next up on the list, as she “Rounds ’em up” is Teresa Giudice.


Danielle retweeted that Teresa’s court cases were her “Karma”  IMG_0421

A confused follower asked her why she was attacking Teresa all of a sudden and that was her reply. If you follow Danielle on twitter she was ok towards Teresa for some time this past year.


Danielle then retweeted a comment that she agreed with, that Teresa’s kids were “disrespectful” and “mouthy” on camera.

Then in an ironic twist someone had made a comment about her kids and Danielle got very offended! I have to agree kids should be off limits! Including Teresa’s kids!


Next up on the list for Danielle’s light and love twitter campaign was Melissa and Joe Gorga.



In a strange twist, next up on her hit list were the twins, who have only recently joined the show this season, and have no prior relationship with Danielle!


I guess not everyone is as excited as the fans are for the new season!!


Not wanting to be left out of the drama, Rosie “i’ll cut your tongue out” Pierri was retweeting anything positive about herself and her sister Kathy in hopes to boost her bruised ego since Kathy’s role on RHONJ has been diminished. Rosie also threw a few digs at her cousin premiere night by making sure to show love to everyone on the show except for her  cousin Teresa!




New Jersey Housewives really do bring out the crazy and this is only the first episode!! Can only imagine what’s in store for the rest of the season!!

Thanks for Reading!… Until next time Jen XO




The Real Housewives of New Jersey brings out the crazy on Twitter! Part 1:)


What’s another season of Real housewives of NJ without some Laurita/Holmes crazy tweets about their co stars! RHONJ ex castmate Jac Laurita and her daughter Ashlee started a twitter war with Dina Manzo after the season premiere of RHONJ!

Ex cast members aren’t so pleased about Dina Manzo’s return to the show!

Let’s take a look at all the nonsense flying around social media yesterday, we’ll start with Jacqueline, Ashlee, Dina and even Dina’s daughter Lexi- had something to say!

It all started with a tweet that Ashlee posted from her instagram. Ashlee threw the first shot across the bow, with this comment about her Aunt Dina who had made a statement on the show that she was “Zen” until you cross her.


After this tweet was brought to Dina’s attention from resident RHONJ blogger “@AllaboutTRH”


Dina made a little comment back, in her own defence.


This tweet sent Jacqueline and Ashlee into a meltdown.





It’s ridiculous that Jac reacted like this all over Dina’s comment “this is why I stay away”. Clearly, anyone would stay away from “family”  that would threaten a member so publicly to “expose” their skeletons over something so petty.

In true Jacqueline style, she decided to attack Dina then tweet about rainbows and unicorns again. This is not the first time she has behaved like this. In fact, she has done the exact same thing with Danielle and Teresa. Jac gets upset at followers to “get over it now” because she said so! IMG_0382


Ashlee decided that all the twitter followers needed to “get lives” and “move on” and find real causes to fight! Didn’t she start this? How did it become our fault? IMG_0395

The blogger who had posted the story, had a few things to say to Jac, and started calling her out on her nonsense!

IMG_0401 IMG_0403

Dina Manzo’s daughter Lexi sent Ashlee a tweet. I’m sure Lexi was confused as the rest of us, as to why Ashlee even started this to begin with!



WOW Ashlee is so rude and she hasn’t changed, or learnt much at all since her first seasons on the show, behaving the exact same way she did as a teenager!

Even jacqueline’s Mother in law, who is Dina Mother and Lexi’s Grandmother, took to her twitter page to ask all the hate to stop!


They all stopped tweeting but if you know Jacqueline, she just can’t help herself, and began Direct Messaging followers about Dina, which she is also known to do in the past with other castmates such as Danielle Staub and Teresa Giudice.


Yikes! This lady needs to close her account and stay away from all social media if she can’t handle people defending themselves!!

The funniest part is the day before Jac was wishing all the women of Real Housewives of New Jersey a great season! Wonder if she still feels the same way!IMG_0435

Thanks for Reading…Until next time Jen XO
