“It’s definitely at a high stage of bad,” she explained.
Is the relationship irreparable?
“I wouldn’t say it’s terminal yet, if I had to speak in medical terms,” she said. “I’ve seen people come back from much worse.”
Regarding the rumor itself, Dolores shared, “I would never believe such a thing.” She called the family discord “very sad”.
“They had a very small family to begin with, and now all they have is each other,” Dolores continued. “They weren’t raised not to get along. They weren’t raised to not have their families together.
Dolores now “prays” for peace in the family. “They both have beautiful children,” she said. “And those kids should be able to be together.”
“When things are emotional between people – like they are right now – you stay out of it, walk away from it, let things calm down, and then hopefully they come back to each other. together at some point,” Dolores continued. “They are different versions of themselves right now. I think it is better that they are far from each other.
The star added: “It’s been years of things going on between them that have finally come to a head, a real tipping point…To be honest, I think they’re both at peace with what whether it be.”
As for Dolores, she is determined to remain neutral. “Never, ever, ever will I choose a side among friends unless something is done to one of them that is so egregious,” she said. “I love them all.”
Dolores is now promoting her episode of celebrity beefwhere she faced RHONJ alum Caroline Manzoa close friend.

” I would like to do [RHONJ] with Caroline because fans love sincere, organic relationships — which we have,” the star said.
Dolores also addressed Teresa’s feud with Caroline. She said the former costars “don’t sometimes belong in the same room together,” but Dolores would film with both of them regardless of the complications.
“They are two very dear people in my life,” Dolores said. “Look, it wouldn’t be easy for me, but it would be something I would have to deal with. That’s it. That’s life, and that’s the experience I’ve had with friends who don’t get along.
In a surprising twist, Dolores shared that Teresa is open at the idea.
“Teresa said, ‘Bring it! Bring her. I would love to see her again. Let’s do this.’ She said it herself,” Dolores said. “Teresa is ready…but everyone wants Caroline back.”
Talk with E ! NewDolores then addressed the drama of her friends.
‘Caroline has always been like a big sister to me,’ the 51-year-old said, ‘and although it’s been hard for her and Teresa to have a real beef, we have an understanding – neither of us would say to anyone who be friends with. They always know that I support friends but not beef.
Although Dolores was often the peacemaker of the group, she herself was in conflict with Jennifer Aydin, after a dramatic season of fighting. Midway through the meeting, Dolores hinted that she could never be friends with the costar again.
