Dolores Catania’s Close Friend Speaks Out About Her New Relationship; Says “They Make A Great Match”

Dolores Catania posted a picture of herself and a new man to her Instagram stories this weekend, and the crowd went wild. Understandably, too. After years of watching Dolores try to justify her lackluster relationship with Dr. David Principe on Real Housewives of New Jersey, I think we all needed this one.

At the end of season 10Dolores told Andy Cohen and viewers at home that she would not be moving in with her then long-term boyfriend David any time soon. Her reasoning was that he had not yet given her the commitment she had dictated. It was a confusing decision due to the fact that Delores had helped design and manage David’s major home renovation to her specific tastes over the course of the season. All with the intention of joining households. Apparently for Dolores, the ring does mean something. I just wish she hadn’t put all the free labor into this man’s lifestyle. Let that be a lesson to get your payment upfront, ladies.

In the end, it’s pretty obvious that Dolores’ “relationship” with David wasn’t going far. You should never have to demand a commitment or relationship title. This is why fans rejoiced upon seeing Dolores with Paulie Connell over the weekend. While at the time, nothing was confirmed, we all had hope in our hearts for our girl. Not to mention Paulie is a certified babe. Dolores could use this win in the love department!

In an interview with Page Six Dolores’ lifelong friend shared that Dolores and Paulie are “very happy together.” We love to hear it. “He’s a really nice guy. It’s pretty new, but you can tell that they make a great match,” Tom Murro, Dolores’ pal shared. He added, “I couldn’t be happier for her. She deserves the best.”

We now know that Dolores and Paulie met through a mutual friend. They have already enjoyed a “romantic vacation” together on the beaches of St. Martin. Hence the alluring beach photos Dolores has been posting lately. They are “pretty much obsessed with each other” and “practically glued at the hip” according to sources. Mazel to the happy new couple!
