We’ve cooked with the best of them but sadly no one’s offered us a makeover. That is, until now. On episode five of Haute Cuisine our favorite housewife, Kathy Wakile from Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey, not only bakes us some mouthwatering harvest muffins but, with the help of her hubby, Rich, provides us with a new Jersey-licious look.
Watch as the Wakiles transform us from Manhattan dud into a Jersey-esque stud. Other yummy gems of topic: Chest hair (or hairs?), Andy Cohen, and some juicy inside scoops into the drama of Jersey Housewives.
It’s seriously as ridiculous as you may think!
