Dolores Catania is spilling tea about the upcoming season of RHONJ, including shifting dynamics, friendship woes, and “unpredictable” drama.
“You’re going to see a shift in friends that you wouldn’t expect,” Dolores Catania told PEOPLE. “Like, that’s the hugest thing — a real shift in friends.”
Season 14 of RHONJ stars Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, Dolores Catania, Rachel Fuda, and Danielle Cabral. Jennifer Fessler and Jackie Goldschneider are also back as friends of the Housewives. They will be joined by two new friends: Kayla Giovinazzo and Tiffany Chantell-Rosania.
There has been lots of chatter about shifting friendships on the show, including Jackie’s falling out with Margaret and Melissa.
In September, while appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Jackie confirmed that she’s not in the best place with her BFF Margaret.
As AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVELY revealed in August, Margaret and Jackie are “fighting” over how Jackie got her book deal for her debut publication, The Weight of Beautiful, which was released on September 26.
At Dolores Catania’s charity baseball game on August 30, Jackie was spotted getting into a “heated discussion” with Margaret’s husband, Joe Benigno. Jackie and Margaret did NOT interact at all at the charity baseball game.
Margaret isn’t the only friend that Jackie is currently on the rocks with while filming season 14 of RHONJ.
Melissa complains to Danielle about the RHONJ “friend of,” saying: “Jackie – she wants to be invited to every single party.”
However, Dolores says all that drama is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the antics going down while filming season 14 of RHONJ.
“Of course, there is the obvious ones that we know about, but there’s been such a mix-up, I want to call it,” she said.
“There’s some rumors buzzing around that a lot of stuff has been happening this season, and a lot of stuff has! It’s unpredictable,” the RHONJ star added. “You’ll like it. What am I going to say? You’ll like it. It’s killing us, but you’ll like it! You have something to look forward to for sure.”
There are only a few more weeks left of filming for season 14 of RHONJ. The cast is set to go on their cast trip in the next two weeks.
RHONJ will return to Bravo for season 14 in 2024.
