Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin’s friendship is over and “done” following the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 12 reunion.
As you may recall, Dolores and Jennifer went at it during part one of the reunion.
“I felt that Dolores had a hidden agenda,” Jennifer claimed while a baffled Dolores fired back, saying, “This f–king c–t,”
However, turns out Dolores’ bigger issue with Jennifer is how she treated her leading up to the reunion.
In February, Jennifer called Dolores a “jerk” while chatting with Access Hollywood.
“She claims to defend me — and she does in real life, she really does defend me. And I love her. And I thought, ‘She loves me in real life, and sometimes is a jerk to me on the show,’” Jennifer said at the time.
“But now I’m starting to realize she doesn’t like me and just appeases me for the show. So I don’t know where we stand. I just know some of the things I saw [this season] were really hurtful. Hopefully, we can try and work it out at the reunion.”
Now, Dolores is making it clear that she’s “done” with Jennifer heading into season 13 which is set to begin filming on Monday, May 23.
“The way she spoke about me was unwarranted,” Dolores tells Page Six.
“I did reach out to her off-camera and I did try to speak to her as a friend and she said, ‘I’ll see you at the reunion,’” she recalls. “That was a very pivotal moment for me to see that the person who I have stuck up for so much and feel that I’ve been there for spoke to me like, ‘I’ll see you at the reunion.’’
“I’ve been a friend to you on the show since you’ve been on … I’ve left events with you. I’ve had your back when you were un-defendable, whether you were in front of me or not,” Dolores adds. “And this is the way I get treated.”
“I feel like it’s probably better for both me and Jen [not being friends],” she notes. “The way I left that reunion is the way it will stay. This is the way it is. This is fine. I don’t have to be everyone’s friend. I’m not used to being treated like this by women — sorry — or anyone because I don’t deserve it.”
Part three of the RHONJ season 12 reunion airs Tuesday, May 17, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
