She is kind and kind, but you can''t believe her as a Jennifer Aydins friend.
Dolores Catania is putting her Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star on Page Six for the money because of Aydin''s treatment.
Catania claims that her own personal information was unjustified.
While they filmed the latest installment of RHONJ, the women started feuding from afar after Aydin declared Catania a jerk in an interview on Access Hollywoods Housewives Nightcap just weeks after the Season 12 premiere.
Aydin, who criticized Catania for not defending her on the show throughout her and her husband Dr. Bill Aydin''s dramatic infidelity storyline, said she hoped to share it with her castmate at the reunion.
Jennifer''s willingness to appoint their issues on stage with Andy Cohen left Catania''s mouth shaking.
I did not reach out to her off-camera and I tried to speak to her as a friend and she said, "Ill see you at the reunion," she recalls. It was a really fantastic moment for me to see that the person I have stuck up for so often and that I have been there for spoke me like, Ill see you at the reunion.
Catania, who joined RHONJ as a full-time Housewife in Season 7, claims she has fiercely defended Jennifer, who joined the fray in Season 9, against any adversaries, both on- and off-camera.
Since youve been on Ive left events with you, Ive had your back when you were unconcerned, whether you were in front of me or not. And this is the way I get treated.
During part one of the New Jersey reunion, Catania presented Jennifer, 45, a peer talk before telling her that she was not abrasive to cry over the Bills 10-year affair.
Catania admits to Page Six that Jennifer did not appear before giving any context to her seemingly frigid remark.
Catania claims to have stepped up and said, Listen, I asked her to be gentle with me, and I asked her to actually stop me from crying. I''ll say, Stop crying. Walk in this house with your head up and your shoulders back, according to her former townhouse rental.
Because you have a good marriage. This is something you learned through and be proud of it. But it wasnt the way she wanted to take it this season, she adds. So, I didnt realize that. I didnt know that.
Catania is unable to retaliate for putting the kibosh on a future friendship with Jennifer.
I feel that both me and Jen are happy. The way I left that reunion is the way it will stay. This is fine. I am not being a stranger like this, but am sorry or anyone because I am not entitled to it.
The Season 12 reunions of Real Housewives of New Jersey air on Bravo on Tuesday, May 17, at 8 p.m. ET.
