‘RHONJ’ star Dolores Catania’s stolen Porsche found ‘totaled’
Dolores Catania’s stolen Porsche was found, but it was destroyed.
The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star’s boyfriend Paul “Paulie” Connell exclusively tells Page Six that police discovered Catania’s wrecked car in Linden.
“The car was involved in a chase and the occupants of the car hit a pole,” Connell said. “We believe there were arrests when the car finally came to a stop, but we are unsure of the exact details.”
He adds: “The car is totaled. It appears that one of the occupants was injured – or two of them.
Catania, 51, went to see if the thieves had left any belongings behind her, but Connell reveals there was “nothing left” in the vehicle.
“On the other hand, we’re currently shopping for cars,” Connell says. “She wants to make sure people know, always lock your cars and keep your key fobs stored somewhere safe.”
Connell also shared footage of the totaled car with us that shows how badly the front of the Porsche was broken.
Page Six reported that Catania’s luxury car was stolen from Connell’s home in Edgewater, NJ last weekend.
“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 would steal it right from Paulie’s driveway,” the source continued.
Catania’s ex-boyfriend David Principe bought her the car — a move that became a point of contention among the “RHONJ” cast during season 11.
“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.’
