Dolores Catania’s Boyfriend, Paul Connell, Has a “Breathtaking” House: See Inside

It’s easy to see why The Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies “can’t get over” Paul’s gorgeous home. 

By Abby Feiner

Dolores Catania has lived in numerous stunning homes over the past few years, but on the April 4 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, it was her boyfriend Paul “Paulie” Connell’s house that had her castmates stopping in their tracks. 

How to Watch

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

Dolores hosted Jennifer Aydin’s coffee reading lunch at Paulie’s house, and as the guests arrived, they were floored. “Oh my god, this place is gorgeous,” Jennifer said as she walked in. “Beautiful place.” 

Rachel Fuda said the home was “incredible,” and later quipped, “I feel so rich in this house.”

While Danielle Cabral called the house “breathtaking,” and Jackie Goldschneider noted it was “stunning,” Jennifer Fessler had a bit more to say on the subject. “Where am I? The Taj Mahal? Wow,” she said, adding in an interview, “I’m trying not to be jealous of Dolores, but it is so, like, 50 Shades of Grey. Like, I’m becoming desperate to find the red room.”

With that, she joked to Dolores, “If Paulie would look at me twice, I would dump your ass. I’d be like, ‘Dolores who?’”

Melissa Gorga’s jaw dropped when she entered the abode. “Dolores is doing something right,” she said in an interview. “Frank [Catania] built her a house, [her ex-boyfriend] David [Principe] built her a house, now she’s sittin’ pretty in this house. If we were playing Monopoly, Dolores is winning.” Still taking in the incredible features of the house, she later shared, “I can’t get over this place. I’m obsessed.”

As the episode showed, Paulie’s multistory home has an amazing kitchen with a large island, a chic living room, a spacious opening dining room, and a beautiful patio with a seating area and a dining table. Scroll down to get a peek inside the home, and hear more of the ladies' thoughts about it in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 After Show video above.

Although Dolores has said she often stays at Paulie’s house, she also has her own beautiful home after going through an extensive renovation process. On a February 2022 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Dolores shared that the renovation “took a full year to complete” and was “so frustrating.” Despite the struggles of getting the house done, Dolores now has an incredibly special home with a jaw-dropping backyard (see it in the video below).

Previously, Dolores resided in a gorgeous townhouse rental while her primary home was being renovated, and she also spent a great deal of time at David’s house (which she helped renovate and decorate) when they were in a relationship.
