Frank Catania Reveals New Details on When He *Finally* Plans to Move Out of David's House & Where He's Going

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

Frank Catania, Dolores Catania’s ex-husband who’s now engaged to longtime girlfriend Brittany Mattessich, shared the BravoCon 2023 stage with Joe Gorga and Joe Benigno to discuss the exciting news. Of course, not even the panel’s moderator, actor and host Jerry O’Connell, could help but wonder what that meant for Frank and his living situation with Dolores’s ex-BF, David Principe.

The living situation has been a hot topic, especially at the RHONJ Season 13 reunion, when Frank told Andy Cohen that he and Brittany closed on a house. At the time, he had yet to break the news to David.

But at BravoCon 2023 — available to watch on Peacock and — Frank gave fans a few more details from the stage after O’Connell, in his best New Jersey accent, asked for the details.“Oh my God, you wanna know the sh-t I caught living with David?” said Frank, adding a few exaggerated sighs and laughter to his response. “Myself and Brittany, we bought a house – it’s being renovated right now. Probably around February, we’ll be moving in together.”

Fans, along with the fellow RHONJ Househusbands, applauded the news as Frank continued.

“David is going to be very upset; yes, believe me,” Frank added. But when O’Connell kidded about David moving in with the newly-betrothed couple, Frank said they already lived close to one another. “We’re only a block away from him,” he said.

Frank Catania on being engaged to Brittany

Frank and Brittany announced their engagement days before BravoCon in October, and O’Connell mentioned seeing the ring backstage at the big event. The moderator joked that Frank “went to Jared,” a reference to the jewelry company’s jingle.

“She’s a good girl, that’s why,” said Frank. “She deserves it.”

Joe Gorga — the longest-running househusband on the series — added Frank would need a wheelbarrow to carry the rock around.

“Listen, Brittany’s been around for a while, and being with me is not easy; it’s really not,” Frank continued. “And I just realized, wanna know something? This woman is going to make my life just better for the rest of my life.”

Frank added, “Before I lose her, I better put a ring on it.”
