Patti Stanger Says This RHONJ Couple’s Relationship is ‘Messy’


Former Bravo matchmaker Patti Stanger slams RHONJ star Dolores Catania’s “messy” relationship with boyfriend Paul Connell.

According to Reality Blurb, Bravo alum Patti Stanger recently made shady comments about RHONJ couple Dolores Catania and Paul Connell.

While Patti thinks the RHONJ couple are cute together, she is perplexed by the fact that Paul is still married to his estranged wife. Paul’s marital status has recently become a bone of contention with Dolores, as seen in season 14 of RHONJ. Dolores wants Paul to get divorced so they can start planning their future together which she hopes includes an engagement and marriage.

““Is his wife in Ireland? Where is she? I believe she’s in Ireland. You can get a divorce in Ireland now. The pope said it was okay so why isn’t he getting divorced? What’s the reason there? I have to do a whole intervention on them both. That seems messy. Very messy,” Patti Stanger said.

While Patti may not like the dynamics of Dolores and Paul’s relationship, she does praise Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for putting their marriages before reality TV.

“The secret to this relationship business, when you have that much money, is to put your relationship first, not second, not third. No matter what happens, this is what’s going on with Melissa and Teresa. You know, the relationship comes first because if you start putting Hollywood first, you’re gonna be alone.”

She continues, “Because at the end of the day, she’s got Louis, and she’s got Joe, and they have kids, and that’s what comes first. This all could be blown away tomorrow. They’ve had a very long run, more than anybody else, I think.”

“And then they have each other. Would you rather have the TV show first and Louis leave? What would you rather?” Patti adds.

RHONJ airs on Sundays at 8 pm on Bravo.
