Dolores Catania is opening up about her family’s recent experience with coronavirus. The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member revealed that both her kids and her ex-husband were diagnosed with COVID-19 over the holidays, although she herself never tested positive for the virus.

How to Watch

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

The RHONJ family spent the holiday break recuperating together, as Dolores recently told Page Six. Her kids, son Frankie and daughter Gabby, both began experiencing symptoms of the virus, including body aches and coughing, on December 23. “My daughter said, ‘Everything hurts me. My head hurts. The [bedsheets] on my back hurt. My body hurts me,’ and I told her, ‘You got COVID,’” Dolores explained.

Her ex-husband, Frank Catania, also tested positive for coronavirus shortly after, although she says he only experienced mild symptoms.  

While Dolores was never diagnosed with the virus, she quarantined with the rest of the family in their New Jersey home as a safety precaution. “I was exposed to it. It was in my house, so I had no right to go out and spread it just in case I had it,” she told Page Six.
