Dolores Catania is going to be spending the summer in the city!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star reveals that she’s moving to NYC for the summer to live up it.
“I got an apartment in the city,” Dolores told Page Six earlier this week. “I always dreamed about living in the city.”
Dolores will be moving to the Financial District in May but she won’t be living there completely alone. Her new downtown pied-à-terre will also be home to her son Frankie Catania, Jr. who has a summer internship at Oppenheimer & Co. Inc.
However, Dolores admits she won’t see much of Frankie as he’ll be working 16-hour days. Instead, she hopes her apartment will be a place where she and her gal pals can hang out.
“Frankie’s not going to be there,” the reality star said. “There’s a rooftop, and I’m, like, ‘Whoa. I’m going to have friends over.’ I’ve never had that before.”
Meanwhile, Dolores also reveals that she’s NOT moving into her boyfriend David Principe‘s new house.
“David will probably be moving into his house, like, this week,” she said. She added that she’s not moving in with David because she is “finally just getting used to my freedom.”
“The first half of my life was for everyone: my kids, my family, my ex-husband, anybody who was in my life,” she said. “Before I have that [again], I would like to get to know myself better. I’m working with a shaman. I’m doing a lot of spiritual stuff. I’m a devout Catholic, but I think there’s so much more to learn, and I want a clear mind before I make any other decisions in my life.”
Dolores says she’s entering a selfish phase of her life and doesn’t even know if she wants to get engaged or married at this point.
“It’s not just a ring. I think that even if there was — I think it’s the timing for me. He didn’t. And I’m kind of glad he didn’t because now my mindset isn’t there anymore.”
Despite it all, Dolores is looking forward to having her freedom in NYC.
“I am not single, but not engaged. Not married,” she said. “I envision walking around. My friend told me that there’s all vendors and stuff by South Street Seaport. I’m going. My boyfriend works seven days a week.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
