Name a more loyal housewife than Dolores Catania. I’ll wait! The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has proven over her last 5 seasons on the show that she is ride or die for the ones she loves. She’s even besties and business partners with ex-husband, Frank Catania. And this season, she let him move back into her house! I’m glad they have a mature relationship but that has to put a damper on dating.
Frank aside, there is no one that Dolores has stuck by more than OG Teresa Giudice. The two have often talked about their 20+ year friendship. They also use the term “like family” to describe each other often. For someone as flawed as Tre, she is lucky she has Dolores in her corner. So naturally, you would think that Dolores would be involved in the next chapter of Teresa’s life – her engagement and upcoming nuptials to Luis “Louie” Ruelas. After all, Dolores is one of the VERY few people who have not commented on the controversy surrounding Louie.
But Heavy is reporting that Dolores wasn’t invited, let alone involved, in Tre’s recent engagement celebrations. Dolores appeared on an episode of Two T’s In A Pod, hosted by Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp, to explain. Dolores stated, “I wasn’t invited, not for any reason. But they said they only kind of invited people who they went out together as couples.” The soiree was held at a New York restaurant back in December.
Dolores continued, “There may be another reason behind it, however, what I can tell you it was not because of Teresa and I weren’t getting along or anything. Louie really didn’t know me as a couple because I didn’t mingle with them as a boyfriend, girlfriend, you know, I had not gotten to know Louie yet. And I think Louie wanted just people — and it was intimate.”
Regardless of the lack of invite, Dolores assured us that she is happy for Tre. Said Dolores, “I just say ‘Teresa, I’m just so freaking happy for you!’ And it’s not about me and it’s not about the people who called me and said you should have been invited and it’s not about any of that. It’s about you’re happy and this guy is good to you and your kids. And really that’s really all I care about.”
TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT DOLORES WASN’T INVITED TO TRE’S ENGAGEMENT PARTY? DO YOU BELIEVE THE REASON WHY? WOULD YOU BE UPSET IF YOU WERE DOLORES?
