Exes Dolores and Frank Catania have remained close after their divorce, even as they both pursue relationships with other people. Frank even has a bit of a bromance with Dolores' boyfriend David Principe (more on that in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 After Show, above).
But would the former couple's camaraderie continue if Frank decided to be more than just friends with one of Dolores' best pals?
One caller wondered just that on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on December 11. However, Dolores was quick to shut down any hypothesizing. "You don't do that with friends," she said.
Andy Cohen tried to get Dolores to elaborate. "Why? What if it's all cool? I guess it's not cool," he ultimately determined when Dolores didn't provide an explanation. "The answer is it would not be cool. That's what we just figured out. It would not be cool."
Sorry, ladies. It looks like Frank is "off limits" if you're in Dolores' social circle, Andy confirmed.
Frank has similarly had a lot to say about Dolores' love life this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, sitting down with David for a serious discussion about his intentions with his ex-wife in the December 11 episode. Dolores was unbothered by Frank's concern when she heard about their conversation during the episode, and she remains similarly nonplussed today.
"You know, I appreciate that. We're very close, and I know in my life, the people that are very close to me, I don't mind them jumping in when they feel they need to," Dolores said on WWHL, later confirming that she and David are still together during the After Show (clip below). "But I got it, Frank."
Dolores' family will have more to say about her relationship with David in an all-new episode of RHONJ on December 18. Watch a preview below, and catch up on the season through the NBC app.
