The Real Housewives of New Jersey have many opinions about Dolores Catania’s relationship with her boyfriend, David Principe.
On Wednesday’s episode of RHONJ, the ladies had a lot to say about Dolores and David’s relationship and the fact that David recently bought Dolores a Porsche instead of an engagement ring.
Dolores freaked out about the confrontation and felt majorly disrespected by her co-stars’ comments.
Now, Dolores is opening up about the drama on the RHONJ After Show and reveals she “won’t allow” the ladies to disrespect her man.
While some of the Housewives were upset that David bought Dolores a car instead of an engagement ring, Dolores explains that she and David “decided that’s not where our relationship was.”
“I’ve now cultivated this life that I’m very happy in. [It’s] the first time in my life I’ve had freedom; my kids are grown, so I’m enjoying my new life, “ Dolores explains. “The guy buys me a Porsche for my 50th birthday, gives it to me early [and] everybody’s shitting on it basically.”
She added, “I’m happy with my Porsche. Signed over, paid off. Here’s the title, here’s your beautiful car. I’m not complaining.”
Dolores then sounds off on the ladies “insulting” David and slams them for taking a poll on David getting her a Porsche instead of an engagement ring.
“Don’t insult the man,” Dolores declares. “What the f–k.”
“Who does this to a friend?” she questions. “That’s catty bullshit. Catty sophomoric bullshit.”
“That’s shitty schoolgirl stuff. I don’t like it,” Dolores continues. “The fact that they were a bunch of pu**ies talking about my relationship at a party in front of a bunch of people I don’t know with the chance that it could get back to somebody that I care about very much and who would be there for them if they ever needed them. David would do anything for anybody, so I don’t appreciate the disrespect, and I won’t allow it.”
“It pushed me over the edge,” she added. “They took the respect that I gave them to have an opinion on my life, and they went overboard with it. That’s where I got extremely angry, and now they’ve lost the chance to give me opinions.”
So, how do the ladies feel about losing Dolores’ trust?
Melissa Gorga admits they “didn’t mean to make [Dolores] uncomfortable or judge her relationship” but adds, “it was just one of those elephants in the room.”
On the other hand, Jennifer Aydin called the whole ordeal “embarrassing and belittling to Dolores.”
100% Team Dolores on this issue. I’m sure this drama came up at the RHONJ reunion.
RHONJ airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm EST on BRAVO.
