Dolores Catania Is Moving To New York; Is She Leaving Real Housewives Of New Jersey?

Viewers of Real Housewives of New Jersey have enjoyed watching the unique dynamic between Dolores Catania, her ex-husband Frank Catania, and Dolores’ never seen boyfriend, David Principe. During this season, Frank has been building David’s dream home, with Dolores giving her input on everything.

As a busy physician, David barely sees Dolores. And Dolores has made it clear that she will not move into David’s house without a proposal. Earlier this season on RHONJ, Frank asked David about his intentions with Dolores. David said he wants to get the house done first before making any other decisions. That was painfully awkward. Man up, David!

Now Dolores is getting ready to move, just not where we expected. In an interview with Page Six, Dolores explained that she is moving to New York. “I got an apartment in the city. I always dreamed about living in the city.” Dolores will be spending the summer in New York, and she will also have a roommate–her son, Frankie Catania. The apartment, which is located in the Financial District, will serve as a home base for Frankie while he completes his summer internship at investment bank Oppenheimer & Co. Inc.

While her son is putting in long hours, Dolores is looking forward to chilling with her friends. “Frankie’s not going to be there. There’s a rooftop, and I’m, like, ‘Whoa. I’m going to have friends over.’ I’ve never had that before,” she explained.

The RHONJ star added that she is “finally just getting used to my freedom,” and she won’t be moving in with her never available boyfriend. “David will probably be moving into his house, like, this week,” Dolores stated. Instead, Dolores is embarking on a journey of self-discovery.

“The first half of my life was for everyone: my kids, my family, my ex-husband, anybody who was in my life. Before I have that [again], I would like to get to know myself better,” Dolores shared. “I’m working with a shaman. I’m doing a lot of spiritual stuff. I’m a devout Catholic, but I think there’s so much more to learn, and I want a clear mind before I make any other decisions in my life.”

Did not receiving a diamond from David affect Dolores’s decision to move to the city? “It’s not just a ring. I think that even if there was — I think it’s the timing for me. He didn’t. And I’m kind of glad he didn’t because now my mindset isn’t there anymore,” Dolores responded. “I am not single, but not engaged. Not married. I envision walking around. My friend told me that there’s all vendors and stuff by South Street Seaport. I’m going. My boyfriend works seven days a week.”

Dolores will also be pretty busy caring for Frank as he recovers from surgery to repair his detached kneecaps and tears in his quadriceps. And I must admit, I am rooting for Dolores and Frank to get back together.
