Luis Ruelas’ ex is dating Dolores Catania’s ex-boyfriend
New — and complicated — relationships are developing in the Garden State.
It was revealed Tuesday night on the second episode of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” season 12 reunion that Luis “Louie” Ruelas’ ex is now dating Dolores Catania‘s ex-boyfriend David Principe.
“It’s true,” Catania, 51, told host Andy Cohen, while Teresa Giudice – who is engaged to Ruelas, 46 – claimed the unnamed woman is “not really” the one of her future husband’s exes.
“It was just someone he was talking to two months before,” Giudice, 49, said.
Meanwhile, Catania seemed to view the individual as an ex of Ruelas, as she apparently dated the businessman for months before he met Giudice.
“It was two months and then the day he met you, he never called her again!” Catania said, explaining that Giudice quickly locked him in with Ruelas.
“So he ghosted that woman for you?” Cohen, 53, asked in amazement.
“Well, I don’t know. You have to ask him what he told her,” Giudice replied. “I do not know.”
The conversation then turned to Catania’s previous relationships with her ex-husband, Frank Catania, and Principe — and how they ultimately impacted her outlook on love.
“Well, my relationship with Frank, I’ve learned there’s life after that,” she said of the former lawyer, with whom she shares daughter Gabrielle, 26, and his son Frankie, 23.
Although Dolores and Frank share a strong friendship today, the Bravolebrity filed for divorce more than two decades ago after discovering their infidelity.
Meanwhile, Dolores feels she’s spent “too much time” dating Tenet.
“[Teresa] was on my back,” she noted. “She’s like, ‘This is [been] five years!'”
Dolores eventually parted ways with Principe last year and has since joined Eco Electrical Services CEO Paul Connell.
When asked if the Irish hunk could appear in the next season of ‘New Jersey’, Dolores joked, “Well, Andy, does anyone want to get in there and get destroyed?”
Although she admitted that filming the reality show can be a “scary thing”, Dolores thinks Connell would participate.
“Would he? Yes. He would do anything for me. When you’re with someone, you do those things,” she said, later adding that she still wasn’t sure about the idea of another marriage.
“I don’t know. It’s all there that I love and want,” she said of her relationship with Connell. “But you never know.”
Part 3 of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” airs Tuesday, May 17 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
