Dolores Catania Reacts to Rachel Fuda Cropping Teresa Out of Cast Photo: "Retaliation"

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member shared her thoughts on if Rachel cropped Teresa Giudice out of the photo on purpose.

By Casey Suglia

As Dolores Catania has stated in her tagline for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14, she is "playing Switzerland" and remaining neutral as her cast members disagree around her.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

This includes how she feels about the drama between Teresa Giudice and Rachel Fuda, who have felt some tension in their relationship. But after Rachel posted the RHONJ Season 14 cast photo — with Teresa cropped out of it — to her Instagram account on April 5, Dolores is letting her thoughts be known.

Although Teresa is her close friend, Dolores is sticking to her word and being as impartial as possible.

Dolores Wishes Rachel Fuda Hadn't Cropped Teresa Out of Cast Photo

After her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on May 5, Dolores took to the WWHL After Show where she addressed Rachel's alleged photo editing. When asked about Rachel's edits, as seen in the video above, Dolores replied that she "wished she hadn't" done that to Teresa. "But they had done that to [Rachel]," she explained.

"That was done first," Dolores said. "It wasn't being petty, it was retaliation."

Dolores explained to Andy Cohen that Teresa had cropped out a number of cast members from a previous promo shot. "I'm not big on, you know, doing the same thing back, because then it makes you wrong too," she said. "I like being able to say, 'Why'd you do that?' You can't say 'Why'd you do that?' when you did the same thing."

Teresa Giudice and Rachel Fuda's Relationship in RHONJ Season 14

Things aren't going to be easy for Teresa and Rachel this season. According to Rachel's bio for Season 14, viewers can expect to see the following this season: "When harmful gossip resurfaces regarding her husband, John's past, Rachel stands her ground and goes head-to-head with Teresa."

In the premiere episode for Season 14, Teresa and Rachel had a conversation at a birthday party for Jennifer Fessler, where they got into it over their husbands. After Rachel asserted that she did not want to know Teresa's husband, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, Teresa then came for Rachel's husband, John Fuda.

"I don't want to know about your husband, either," Teresa said. "You know what your husband said to my husband. 'I have tremendous respect for your wife because we were both in jail.' I heard he was the biggest drug dealer in Bergen County. So don't come for my husband or I'll come for your husband."

"She better not come for me," Teresa said of Rachel in the premiere. "I will take that bitch down. I will take that bitch down it's not even funny."
