Dolores Catania Gives a Tour of Her Glam New Townhouse: "I Love My New Life"

On this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dolores Catania has been frustrated (to say the least) about her ex-husband Frank Catania's delayed progress on her home renovation. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo Tuesdays 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

"I'm furious with Frank that he couldn't get it together to finish the house on the move-in date we all agreed upon," Dolores said on the show's February 1 episode, explaining that she wanted the home completed by the time their son, Frankie, graduated from college and their daughter, Gabrielle, graduated from veterinary school. Later, she added, "Frank's priorities are a little off at this moment because he has a new girlfriend in Texas."

At the time, Dolores and Frank were nine months into the renovation process, and it seems it took a few more months to finish the home. On the February 22 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the titular host shared that the renovation "took a full year to complete," which Dolores told fellow guest Michael Rapaport was "so frustrating." During a game based on the renovation timeline, Dolores also shared that the house "isn't totally done."

While Dolores was waiting for the home to be completed, she was living in a rental townhouse. As you can see in the exclusive Bravo Insider video above, the gorgeous home has its own elevator, a "bright and light" kitchen, and a "serene" sitting room. Although the townhouse was supposed to be a temporary arrangement, on the February 8 episode of RHONJ, Dolores admitted with a laugh, "I don't want to go back to my house."
