You'll Never Guess Who is Building a New House for Dolores Catania & Her Ex-Husband

The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom gives an update on her unconventional living situation.

By Tamara Palmer

Dolores Catania has a boyfriend of almost two years named Dr. David Principe, yet she continues to live with her ex-husband Frank CataniaThe Real Housewives of New Jersey mom has just revealed that her boyfriend is building a home — for her and Frank to move into together.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/9c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

“I’m still dating David. David is the one who is building [Frank and I’s new] house actually, helping build the house. We’ll see what happens," Dolores told Us Weekly.

Dolores and Frank haven't been together for 20 years, and he has a girlfriend, but she sure loves having him around.

"It's the greatest thing!" she told The Daily Dish in October. "I come home, he's mopping my floor, he's handling my appointments, he's doing the dishes, he's paying all the bills." 

"My ex and his girlfriend have been together 11 years and they're in this thing where they keep fighting about the same thing," she explained. "Nothing's getting better, so it's time to take a break. I think after 11 or 12 years, it's worth giving it a shot, maybe you need a little break and not be in the same house and argue about the same things, so he moved back in with me." 

What we really want to know, though, is who is going to be living in the new house! Will Dr. David move in with Dolores and Frank?! Only time will tell.
