When Dolores Catania's son Frankie appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on May 9, a major milestone was on the horizon for him. “I’m graduating from college this May, from Sacred Heart University,” he announced in the clip above. “I had an amazing four years there." But now, the time has officially come for Frankie to move on. 

How to Watch

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

In a May 20 Instagram post, Dolores shared that her son had graduated — summa cum laude, no less. "Today is one of my proudest days being a mother," The Real Housewives of of New Jersey cast member wrote. "Little Frankie, I couldn’t be more proud of all your accomplishments and the man you are becoming."

The accompanying snaps showed Frankie in his cap and gown, surrounded by his loved ones. The pictures also showed a celebratory dinner that entailed steak, pasta, and wine. Of course, no RHONJ party is complete without a gorgeous cake, and Frankie's feast didn't disappoint. 

To celebrate his accomplishment, the new grad cut into a gilded cake that had his alma mater's logo on top. The glitzy dessert came with a miniature cap and gown and had a congratulatory message scrawled onto its base.
