Real Housewives of New Jersey is back in full force, simmering with near-physical altercations, cheating realizations, and Teresa Giudice’s perplexing logic. At the center of all the drama – for once – is Dolores Catania. After she split from David Principe, Dolores has awakened this season and isn’t here for Jennifer Aydin’s tears. Is she Jennifer’s friend, or isn’t she? There’s only person who isn’t afraid of Paterson Dolores, and that’s Jackie Goldschneider.
Basically, Marge brought up Bill Aydin’s affair with “A PHARMACEUTICAL REP!” from 10 years ago to spite Jennifer for calling Marge out for cheating last season. Marge can’t seem to wrap her head around the fact that Jennifer was triggered by Marge’s casual admission of her own affair, and Jackie doesn’t think Dolores has been a good friend because she didn’t care for Jennifer letting her emotions out. It got messy from there.
According to Us Weekly, Jackie “exclusively revealed” on their podcast, Getting Real with the Housewives, that she and Dolores “have such a love-hate relationship.” It’s this love-hate dynamic that makes their relationship, “so authentic.” “I mean,” Jackie continued, “that’s really the way we feel about each other.”
Jackie elaborated on her relationship with Dolores, saying, “There are times when we really love each other, and then there are just times when we get under each other’s skin.” You don’t say? “I think Dolores and I are the same in the fact of like, if you get in my face and you rub me the wrong way, like we’re just gonna explode. I think that came to a head this season, and it wasn’t a good scene.”
Jackie also shared on the podcast that she and Dolores are “on better terms after coming to blows.” In fact, Jackie says that she “has ‘much more love’ than hate” for Dolores. “Dolores and I, we get each other. We get it, you know?” Jackie explained.
She said, “I think Dolores knows that I’ll always, always be there for her no matter what.” She concluded by saying, “I love [Dolores] and she was at my birthday off camera, you know? Like, I love Dolores, but I do think we get under each other’s skin sometimes.”
Yes, you do, Jackie and we’re definitely here for it! I can’t wait to see how this drama plays out on RHONJ, this season is delivering so far. Like Jackie says, the relationships between cast members actually appear authentic, which makes a huge difference in these shows.
