Are Dolores Catania and David Principe Still Together ?: RHONJ Recap
During season 11 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dolores Catania’s inner circle had questions and expressed opinions about the situation in her relationship with David Principe after several years together … and no engagement ring on her finger or even living together. Heck, even a psychic had a thought on this.
During the second part of the RHONJ Season 11 reunion, Dolores had the final say on this very heated issue.
She confirmed to Andy Cohen that she and David are still together and still don’t live together. “I really feel like this guy loves me. I don’t know if he really knows how to be in a relationship,” she said. She noted that they usually saw each other once a week, around her work schedule as a doctor, adding, “I wish we could see each other more.”
Dolores then shared that David had previously been married and had four children and that she was close to her children. “So, is that why he doesn’t want to get married again?” Andy wondered, to which Dolores replied, “It could be … I mean, he’s been married for 14 years.”
As for the Porsche he got her this season instead of a ring, Dolores said it doesn’t sound like a ‘bait and a change’ because “David doesn’t want to get engaged or remarry. ‘cares.”
During the meeting, Andy read a clip from a recent Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen episode in which Dolores’ son Frankie Catania shared that he believed marriage was a possibility for his mother and David. “Honestly, yes. I spent a lot of time with David, especially living in his house this summer while studying for GMAT,” he shared on WWHL. “And you talk to him at night, and you hear things that no one hears.”
“This is news for me,” Dolores said at the meeting.
Dolores then revealed how she would feel if a proposal took place in the near future: “I would like [marry him], but I wouldn’t go for it. I would say, ‘Alright, Dave, we’ll get married, but let’s start living a life. I want a full weekend a month. Let’s go somewhere. I want my name on this house. If I want to be your wife, now there are things that I will demand. I had a lot of time to think [in four-and-a-half years]. “
During the reunion, Dolores was joined by her ex-husband, Frank Catania, as you can see in the clip above.
Before the reunion aired, Dolores reflected on the emotional experience. Before part 1, she wrote, “It was a roller coaster of emotions, but one thing I know is drama is a down to earth thing for us Jersey girls!” And before the broadcast of part 2, she sharing, “Tonight, the gloves are off.”
