Dolores Catania shared a photo of herself on the beach over the weekend, and shortly thereafter, she received a racy comment from the ex-husband of her longtime friend and Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member, Teresa Giudice.
After posting an image of herself showing off her new extensions in a bikini at an undisclosed location, Dolores was met with a message from Joe Giudice.
“If you need me, call me on my shell phone,” Dolores wrote in the caption of the December 19 photo.
Following the sharing of the RHONJ cast member’s post, as seen both above and below, Joe wrote, “Sexy.” And not surprisingly, fans were taken completely aback at his message and flooded the comments section of Dolores’ post with messages of their own.
“Oh Joe. In this case… think it, don’t say it,” one Instagram user advised.
“Eewwwww,” another added.
Then, as others reacted with emojis, including a red heart emoji and a laughing while crying emoji, one person asked “why” Joe shouldn’t share his honest thoughts about Dolores’ bikini photo.
“Why not?” they wondered.
“I have a lot going on right now and don’t have time for a relationship. Between my new attorney and [my] appeal to get back to the U.S., my work here in the Bahamas [and] new projects, I just don’t have the time or headspace for that,” he said in a statement to Us Weekly.
Joe and Daniela began dating in the summer of 2020 but didn’t make their romance official on social media until February 2021, when Joe shared a sweet tribute to his then-girlfriend on Instagram in honor of Valentine’s Day.
“Thank you for accepting me and not trying to change me. Thank you for seeing the best in me. I love the way your eyes light up when we together. I love hearing about what matters to you. I am thankful for you and your family. And most of All I love the way YOU [LOVE] MY KIDS,” he wrote on February 14. “My life is so much better because you are here with me.”
As for the love life of Dolores, she recently shared a series of photos of a mystery man on her Instagram Story, but she has yet to confirm whether or not they are dating after her alleged split from boyfriend Dr. David Principe.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 12 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in early 2022.
