Dolores Catania Reveals Why Teresa Giudice Always Defends Joe Giudice; Says She Doesn’t Judge Melissa Gorga For Not Shutting Joe Down When He Called Her a ‘Broken Woman’

Dolores Catania is speaking her mind and throwing some shade!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star appeared on the April 28 episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, where she turned the tables on her judgy co-stars.

To start, Dolores reveals why Teresa Giudice always stands up for and defends her ex-husband Joe Giudice.

According to Dolores, Teresa defends Joe over her brother, Joe Gorga, and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga because of her four daughters.

Joe and Teresa share daughters Gia, 20, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11.

“I know why Teresa does it because she wants peace with her daughters,” Dolores confesses.

Dolores also says she doesn’t judge Melissa for not intervening and telling Joe to knock it off when he called her a “broken woman” at Michelle Pais’ party.

“Not at all,” Dolores admits. “That was my conversation with Joe, and I’m happy she stayed out of it.”

Dolores also reveals the one thing Melissa puts up within her marriage that she NEVER would.

“He doesn’t like when she goes out with her friends or when she unconsciously walked ahead of him, and he got mad at her for that. She didn’t mean to, but he was offended by that. So, I haven’t dealt with that in a really long time, so that’s not something I would deal with at this age,” Dolores explains.

RHONJ airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm EST on BRAVO.

Thoughts on Dolores’ comments? Are you surprised Dolores is “happy” Melissa stayed out of her drama with Joe? Sound off below!
