ICYMI, Dolores Catania was looking like a hot tamale in the February 19 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The house flipper broke out a fiery red cut-out swimsuit during the gang's trip to the Jersey Shore that was too hot too handle. But while some of us were distracted by Dolores' bold choice in swimwear, others couldn't help but notice that Dolores looked a bit different. 

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.

After getting an influx of queries about her appearance in last night's episode, the Italian stunner took to Instagram to clear the air. Along with a photo of Dolores in the red swimsuit, she wrote: "So many have asked why I've looked different. This was 3 weeks into my HCG program from @elitehealthcenternj."

As you may recall. Dolores started a six-week weight loss program at Elite Health Center in New Jersey earlier this year. Her program included the controversial HCG diet, which combines injections of the HCG hormone with a limited-calorie plan. After one week, she lost eight pounds, and then Dolores was down 18 pounds in 28 days.

In July, Dolores revealed that she had lost 25 pounds in 45 days thanks to the program. "I feel amazing," she shared
