Things are about to get real for Kathy Wakile—the reality TV personality’s dream of opening a pizzeria comes true next month.

The former star of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Wakile has announced plans to start a family-friendly and “drama-free” pizzeria called Pizza Love in Bergen County, New Jersey. According to the New York Post, it will open in June. She and her husband, Richie, will work with two friends who have restaurant experience.

“It’s something I’ve been wanting for such a long time,” she told the NYP. “I’ve talked about it in the past, but the timing wasn’t right, [and] now I have the time to devote to it.”

Wakile has authored a cookbook, Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet. She also developed Dolci Della Dea, a gourmet cannoli kit.

The Pizza Love menu will include pizza, cannolis, gelato and other Mediterranean fare, with seasonal ingredients prominently featured. “I’ll be changing it up depending on the season,” Wakile told NYP. “That’s how I like to cook—depending on the season and what people are looking for.”
