It was only inevitable that Dolores Catania joined Real Housewives of New Jersey at some point. She had decades-long relationships with Teresa Giudice, Dina Manzo, and Caroline Manzo long before the show even started filming.
If anything it would have made sense for her to be a part of the OG cast. Well, it turns out she actually was slated to be a full-time cast member on season one. However, she changed her mind and someone else was brought in to replace her.
Coronavirus is hitting the world pretty hard. We’ve all been cooped up in quarantine for what feels like forever. While Bravo is doing us a great service by running marathons of various past seasons, it’s not always enough. But we are all in this together, including our favorite Bravolebrities.
It’s reassuring to hear that so many of them are doing their part to make the world a better place right now. Bethenny Frankel is at the top of my list after donating thousands of medical supplies to hospitals in need. Dolores Catania has done similar work, organizing food, medical supplies and even shoes for local healthcare workers. Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz raised money to help their TomTom staff get paid while they are out of work. Tinsley Mortimer and fiance Scott Kluth did something super sweet and donated $10K each to the family of a Bravo editor who passed from the virus. Hell, even Teddi Mellencamp hooked us all up and gave away free workouts so everyone can stay healthy while cooped up. But not all of our Bravolebrities have left us feeling good during the pandemic.
Of all the Housewives in all the cities, Dolores Catania has always been the one I would most want for my best friend. She comes across as strong and loyal. She is always there to support the rest of the cast. All these years, she has had all the tea on Teresa Guidice and has never spilled one drop. She is best friends with her ex-husband and is easily one of the most independent Housewives.
Dolores is known on Real Housewives of New Jersey for being someone who can be counted on when times get tough. Now she is proving herself to be not just a pillar of strength to her friends and family, but to the community as well.
Last season of Real Housewives of New Jersey was epic on so many levels. There was the altercation in a clothing boutique, courtesy of Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub. Margaret poured water on Danielle’s head. Then Danielle dumped out the contents of Margaret’s purse into a lit candle.
Before leaving the shop, Danielle grabbed Margaret’s ponytail and gave it a vicious yank. That looked incredibly painful. In the wildest moment of the RHONJ season, Danielle revealed to Melissa Gorga that Danielle’s bestie Teresa Giudice told Danielle to pull Margaret’s hair.
Real Housewives Of New Jersey fans swooned when Teresa Giudice’s daughter Gia Giudice went to prom with Dolores Catania’s son Frankie Catania. This is the power couple we all need, but no pressure or anything, guys.
Teresa and Dolores maintained that Gia and Frankie were merely “just friends.” However, RHONJ fans hoped that they were just playing it cool and keeping things private. Apparently, that’s not the case. These two are not dating.
The dramatic Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion has reached its conclusion. This episode is all eyes on Danielle Staub. Her final act as a cast member of this show is coming. It’s sure to be a fiery ending to her run. Also, what will happen with Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs‘ friendship? That hair pull might have ruined everything between them forever. I don’t really see how Marge and Tre move forward after that.
Jennifer Aydin has been stealing the show at this reunion, but the other women are sick of it. Melissa Gorga & Jackie Goldschneider are likely hoping Jennifer stays quiet during this final part. Good luck with THAT. She was entertaining, but it started to border on obnoxious. Just. Let. Someone. Else. Speak. PLEASEEEEEE. Can someone convince Dolores Catania to go full Patterson Dolo on her?
Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 concludes tonight with Part 3 of the reunion. Last week’s episode left off with Danielle Staub refusing to come out unless she’s sitting next to Andy Cohen.
News flash, Danielle, you are not a full-time cast member and you have not been since Season 2. As we saw in the trailer, Danielle ends up sitting nowhere near Andy. Instead, she’s ostracized to a chair by herself, and she couldn’t be sitting any further from Andy. In a Hail Mary attempt to get next to Andy, Danielle claimed she couldn’t hear Andy at the reunion because of where she sat last year. Sure, Danielle.
It’s not exactly “news” at this point since so many entertainment productions and businesses have shut down thanks to the threat of Coronavirus, but we can officially add the Broadway play Chicago to that list.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Erika Jayne posted about the end of her Broadway.
