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

Dolores Catania has had her fair share of nontraditional living arrangements. Most notably, of course, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member cohabited with her ex-husband, Frank Catania — despite being in a relationship with someone else. She also moved into a glamorous new townhouse while Frank continued to renovate her house, and she decided not to move into her then-boyfriend David Principe’s house even though she helped design nearly every inch of it. And if that’s not enough to make your head spin, consider the fact that after Dolores split from David, her ex-husband moved in with him. So, now that Dolores is happy in a new relationship with Paul “Paulie” Connell, she recently gave BravoTV.com an update on the couple’s current living arrangement. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

“I spend a lot of time at Paulie’s house,” Dolores shared. And naturally, she has made a lasting impression on her love’s spot. “It was like a James Bond bachelor pad when I met him,” she said. “Shortly after, there were dogs running around, my family’s coming over. So, it’s no longer the bachelor pad.”

Still, Dolores hasn’t parted with her own space. “I don’t officially live [at Paulie’s]. But I do spend a lot of time there,” she clarified. “That’s an adjustment for both of us… That wasn’t something I planned on.”

As for whether they’ll officially cohabitate in the near future, Dolores offered, “We’ll see.”

In May, on Part 2 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Andy Cohen asked, “How many nights a week do you spend together?” Dolores replied, “A lot,” adding, “I have some things there.”

Dolores also shared how her new relationship affected her living arrangement with her ex-husband. “Frank had planned on going to my house,” Dolores said. “But I have a boyfriend now, and for Frank to be staying with me... it’s like enough. I’m in a relationship.”
