Rosie Pierri, the auxiliary member of the Real Housewives of New Jersey (she’s Kathy’s sister), came out as gay on the show in August. She proudly kissed her girlfriend, Ellen, and introduced her to all her family and friends. Around a dinner table, Rosie made a moving toast to Ellen, who has inspired her on many levels– including inspiring her to lose a lot of weight.
During the dinner, RHONJ star Melissa Gorga said: “I think Ellen is bringing out out a more mushy side of Rosie. Rosie’s, like so in love – she’s got the little birds going around.” According to the description of this week’s episode, “Gators and Haters,” those little birds have flown south. Rosie and Ellen split shortly after that televised toast.
