Dolores Catania is giving an update on the relationship between her ex-husband, Frank Catania, and her boyfriend, Paul Connell.

Following a couple of somewhat tense moments between the men, the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member revealed where they stand while also confirming how she feels about Ramona Singer after their spat, reacting to Danielle Cabral saying she inspired her to get a tummy tuck, and sharing who she’d like to star alongside on a potential season of the Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip.

“I’ve never thought about it but I wish someone I didn’t like and they were on it because no one’s really seen me get really f-cking mad,” Dolores told Reality Blurb on July 12 as she celebrated her Bella Magazine cover at Avenue in Long Branch, New Jersey. “So if I was on a Girls Trip, I’d want somebody I’d really disliked on there. I just can’t think of who that would be.”

Looking stunning in a Barbie pink dress and silver high heels, Dolores said she was quite flattered to learn that her co-star Danielle was inspired to get a tummy tuck by her body. As RHONJ fans may have seen, Danielle told her fans and followers earlier this month that she had body envy as the two of them filmed season 13 last year.

“I can’t even tell you what it’s like to film [RHONJ] with Dolores Catania and that body-ody-ody. I wanna jump off the f-cking bridge,” Danielle admitted.

And in response, Dolores asked, “How flattering was that? To have a girl her age say she’s inspired by me? Oh my god.”

Throughout Danielle’s plastic surgery journey, Dolores has “been talking her through it.”

“I spoke to her on the way here. She’s doing really good, and she’s got a great body,” Dolores shared. “She’s amazing. I love her.”

Meanwhile, on the opposite end of the spectrum, Dolores addressed where she stands with Ramona, who she once shaded as a “horrible human” for snubbing Frank and has also called her out for her mean and rude behavior (as have many others).

“Ramona? I’m over Ramona,” she declared. “If I saw Ramona, she probably wouldn’t remember me or know my name, but that’s Ramona.”

Throughout the event on Wednesday night, as Dolores took photos and answered questions, Paul was nearby, taking videos and photos of his leading lady.

“He’s my biggest cheerleader. He really is. Can you tell?” Dolores asked.

Also, during our chat with Dolores, she confirmed that Frank and Paul are in a great place.

“Good. It’s good,” she said of their relationship.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is expected to begin filming season 14 in mid-August.
