Joe Gorga Says Dolores Catania a “Broken Woman” in “RHONJ” Music Video
Joe Gorga doesn’t just fight with his wife in this week’s episode of âThe Real Housewives of New Jerseyâ – he takes on Dolores Catania.
Melissa Gorga’s husband, 46, called Dolores, 50, a “broken woman” in front of the cast at a party, in an exclusive clip from the Wednesday night episode obtained by Page Six.
âLook, I love Frank Catania but he was doing his thing,â Joe began at the party, which included the entire cast. “Look, wait, I love you like a brother, but you ruined her.”
“I don’t think I’m broke!” Dolores exclaimed as Melissa watched with a horrified expression on her face.
“She’s a broken woman,” Joe began before Margaret Josephs scream cut him off.
Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider both had disgusted looks while Melissa looked stunned.
Joe insisted that Dolores was broken as she began to call him a “Neanderthal”.
“If I was cheated, if Melissa cheated on me, I would be broken,” Joe tried to explain. âI was like, ‘Look, I don’t need a body. I love my space. ‘ Just like Dolores.
Dolores and Frank Catania married when they were younger and welcomed two children during their marriage – Frankie, 22, and Gabrielle, 25.
Dolores and Frank both made comments on âRHONJâ that they divorced almost two decades ago because Frank cheated on Dolores during their marriage, but now they’re extremely close.
âThere wasn’t a lot of time to play games when you have two kids involved who can be hurt by their parents fighting,â Dolores told Page Six in a recent interview. âAfter my divorce, I decided I was going to make the most of the family I had. So I put a lot of things – my frustration, my resentment – that would happen with any type of infidelity in a relationship, aside. I made myself the tallest person, of whom I am, to this day, very proud – and it worked for the best for everyone. “
In fact, it might be working too well as Dolores’ new boyfriend Dr David Principe took care of Frank after he recently had surgery.
Joe then turned his attention to Dolores in the clip and asked her, “Don’t you want to be loved?”
“I feel loved!” Dolores screamed back.
“By who?” Gorga pressed.
Dolores retaliated, âBy David! I am happy where I am right now.
She began to explain that if she felt she needed to change her life, she would act on it, but Joe insisted that she had a “strong heart”.
Their fight will continue during the episode.
Elsewhere in the clip, Goldschneider, 44, gave his opinion in a confessional, saying, âJoe may sound like he’s talking to Dolores, but I think he’s trying to send Melissa a message. You might think you want all of that independence, but without a man to stabilize you and take the lead, you’re going to be broken too.
âThe Real Housewives of New Jerseyâ airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
