Wait, Frank Catania Moved Back In with Dolores’ Ex David Principe?! Here’s Why

Dolores Catania’s ex-husband shared the “interesting” reason he decided to live with her ex-boyfriend: “It’s a unique situation.”

By Abby Feiner

In Season 12 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Frank Catania was preparing to move in with Dolores Catania and their kids, Frankie and Gabby. Finally, after the renovations were (mostly) done and the family’s ground rules were agreed upon, Dolores was excited to share that she had “everybody under one roof for the first time in 22 years.” However, it seems the arrangement didn’t last long. 

How to Watch

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

In The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 12 After Show video above, Frank describes his family’s living situation and declares, “Right now everything’s in limbo.” As for where he’s residing, Frank explains, “Mainly, I’m at David’s.” Yes, that’s David Principe, Dolores’ ex-boyfriend. Press play on the clip above to hear more.

In the video, exclusive to Bravo Insiders, Frank shares a peek at David’s home and explains why he decided to move in with David after he and Dolores had split. Of course, Dolores and Margaret Josephs also have a few theories about the situation.

Although Frank and David had previously lived together and become really, really close in the process (as Dolores put it, “David gave [Frank, who was injured] a shower!”), it seems Frank won’t be staying at David’s house forever: “Bottom line is… it’s time for me, I think, to just build my own house and go out on my own.” 

Press play on the video to get Frank’s take on the “unique situation” and find out where Dolores is living now!
