Dolores Catania gushes over her boyfriend in a sweet birthday tribute

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dolores Catania takes to social media to wish her boyfriend a happy birthday in a sweet tribute.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Dolores Catania took to social media to gush over her boyfriend and wish him a happy birthday in a sweet tribute. RHONJ Season 12 recently wrapped and was as full of drama as ever. Much of the drama revolved around Dolores’ longtime best friend, Teresa Giudice, and her new fiancé, Luis Ruelas. Teresa, a powerhouse in her own right, was taken to task by the equally daring Margaret Josephs, who challenged Luis’ past, especially his previous relationships. The feud between the two women caused a strong rift between all the housewives, as they all took different positions and had different opinions on who to support. For her part, Dolores had Teresa’s back, though Teresa was upset that Dolores didn’t leave with her after a particularly heated confrontation between her and Margaret in Nashville.


Although Dolores and Teresa have been friends since they were young, the two are no strangers to fighting or conflict. Before becoming famous on reality TV, Dolores and Teresa grew up together and knew each other for most of their lives. Their children are even close and grew up together as well. Dolores’ son, Frank Jr., even took Teresa’s daughter, Gia, to prom. Over the years, the friends have watched each other in friendly feuds, personal struggles, and seen many men come and go. Dolores was previously married to Frank Catania, but the two separated after he was unfaithful to her. Fortunately, the two were able to reconcile and have since maintained a close friendship and co-parenting relationship. Dolores previously dated Dr. David Principe, and the two even built a home together, but they eventually broke up due to an inability to agree on their level of commitment.

Now Dolores is happily dating a new man. The reality star has been dating businessman Paul Connell since early 2022, and they seem very happy together. Dolores took to social media to wish her new man a happy birthday, posting a sweet video compilation of photos and videos of her and Paul together. Along with the video, she wrote, “Happy birthday to my real life pixie. The one who stole my heart, my best friend and the guy who always gives so much of himself.”

Since joining RHONJ, Dolores was adored by fans and cast, who joined in the well wishes in the comments and expressed their support and love for him. Jackie Goldschneider wrote, “Happy Birthday Paulie! Sending you lots of love!” Margaret also sent her love, commenting, “Happy Birthday @paul_g_connell You stole all our hearts!!” While his friends had nothing but love for the businessman, not everyone is thrilled with the relationship. At RHONJ Season 12 reunion, Dolores’ ex-husband Frank said he and Paul weren’t close, but admitted they were making progress in their relationship.

Regardless of how anyone else feels, The Real Housewives of New Jersey The star seems happy and content with her new man. While her love life is going well, Dolores is no stranger to drama between friends. Still, that seems to be the status quo among New Jersey housewives, and while it might not be fun for them, it’s certainly entertaining for viewers.
