‘RHONJ’ star Dolores Catania ‘shaken’ after Porsche theft

Dolores Catania felt shaken after her Porsche was stolen straight from her boyfriend’s driveway early Saturday morning.

Sources close to the 51-year-old ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star say the luxury vehicle was taken from Paul ‘Paulie’ Connell’s home in Edgewater, NJ around 6am.

“Dolores is determined to find her car with the help of the authorities,” an insider told Page Six exclusively, adding that a police report has been filed in Bergen County.

“She’s exasperated but also very shaken that someone is stealing it right from Paulie’s driveway,” the source continued.

Catania’s ex-boyfriend David Principe gifted her the car — a gesture that became a point of contention among the “RHONJ” cast during season 11.

Catania says the car was stolen from outside her boyfriend Paulie Connell's house.

At the time, Catania told some of his fellow students to “fuck off” themselves after he insinuated that Principe gave him the car to stall on buying an engagement ring.

“He didn’t give her a ring, so she didn’t move in. [with him]but he just bought her a Porsche,” Jackie Goldschneider told the group, to which her husband, Evan, jokingly replied, “It means, ‘I’m just going to get you a car instead of a ring.’

Such comments caused Catania to leave the scene. “Everyone is talking behind my back about having a crazy Porsche, and I want to go,” she said on her exit. ” Kiss my ass. Learn not to talk behind my fucking back.
