BravoCon 2022 was an absolute gift for anyone obsessed with the fun world of Bravo content, especially fans of the Real Housewives franchise. It wasn’t just drama; there was awkwardness, which can be an entertaining and frightening kind of glee. There was a really awkward pause when the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was asked about NeNe Leakes.
There was also the succulent treat from “The Real Housewives of Potomac” star Ashley Darby, who was cozying up to another Bravo star following her split from husband Michael Darby. (Hint: She and Luke Gulbranson were spotted getting cozy.) Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis also seems to have a new love on the horizon, with a potential relationship with Winter House star Jason Cameron, who promised to “slip into her direct messages.” Ah, the poetry of modern romance!
Then, of course, what we’ve been waiting for: the feud between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. Andy Cohen didn’t hold back when he asked about it, but honestly, even Cohen seems to be getting over this particular family feud. Meanwhile, another ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ cast member has exciting news: Dolores Catania has revealed some details about her love life.
Dolores Catania lives with Paulie Connell
At the BravoCon 2022 Let Me Tell You About Our Families panel, Dolores Catania gave fans an update about her boyfriend Paul “Paulie” Connell. She was asked if she would consider moving in with Connell and she said, “I already do,” according to People, noting that it happened in December 2021.
“Paulie wanted that,” she added, continuing to gushed about her wonderful relationship with her new husband. “He always compliments me,” Catania said. “He wants to improve my life. And when I first met him, he told me that’s what he wanted. When he came into my life, he said, ‘I know you’re very independent, but I want it to be part of your stuff, so let me.'” Catania went on to say that it’s been a struggle for her since she’s like that independent, but Connell’s determination and love made her tear down her walls.
Catania was previously married to Frank Catania and the two share children Gabrielle Catania and Frank Catania Jr., according to Us Weekly. The two famously had a positive relationship after the divorce and he gets along with Connell. “Me and Paulie get along great,” he said on the panel, per People. “It got to the point where it became a good friendship. Him and Dolores and my girlfriend [Brittany Mattessich] and I’m going out to eat together.” So it looks like everyone’s happy!
