Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dolores Catania is spilling the beans on the closure of her co-star Melissa Gorga’s boutique ENVY.
Last week, Melissa revealed that her boutique of less than a year had temporarily closed due after she and her business partner Jackie Robinson went their separate ways.
“The chemistry was over. The business agreement or what ever it was that they had between them is not working out anymore. They decided to separate, and Jackie wanted to liquidate the [boutique],” Dolores tells PEOPLE of Melissa and Jackie’s split.
Adding, “I don’t know if Melissa was on board with that, but certainly Jackie went to Kim [DePaola] for the help.”
Melissa insists that ENVY will re-open this spring and be managed the business by herself. However, Dolores says Jackie’s departure was no surprise.
“I’m sure Jackie had had complaints in the past and stressed them to Melissa,” Catania spills. “I don’t know if Melissa really took them as serious.”
As always Dolores remained neutral during the split saying, “I just listened and I just let them know that I wouldn’t be taking sides. Although, that’s gonna be a good sale…I never miss a sale.”
Damn Dolores is spilling the tea, but I’m not sure Melissa will appreciate it!
