This Is the *Real* Reason Frank Catania Didn’t Want Dolores to Leave the Table

After a dinner in Nashville took a dramatic turn, Frank encouraged the RHONJ cast member to stay at the restaurant — but not for the reason he originally told her.

By Abby Feiner

On the April 12 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the group's Nashville trip took a turn when an argument between Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs got heated (to say the least) and Teresa left the dinner. Although Dolores Catania attempted to leave with Teresa, explaining, "I came with them, I'm going with them," Frank Catania encouraged her to stay.

"We're the hosts right now," Frank said, to which Dolores responded, "Oh, you're right."

However, as Frank revealed in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 12 After Show video above, there was an entirely different reason he wanted Dolores to remain at the restaurant, despite the "intense" dinner moment. Press play on the clip above to find out why Frank wanted to stay at the restaurant and hear more details of the dramatic dinner.

Although Frank was determined to keep Dolores at the dinner, he ended up unintentionally missing a portion of it. "He was across from me, and he was eating, and about 20 minutes later, he was asleep," Evan Goldschneider recalls in the video. "I have pictures of it."
