We are in for a wild ride on the upcoming new episode of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey! In an exclusive clip obtained by In Touch, we get a glimpse at Dolores Catania's unconventional home life, as fans know she is living with her ex Frank Catania — even though she is in a relationship with Dr. David Principe. The scene opens up with Frank and the former couple's 18-year-old son, Frank, handling some housework and discussing the unusual living arrangement.
"They think you're like, swingers," Frankie told his father. Frank Sr. quickly fired back with, "Oh my God! Mommy is SO not like that." Things got interesting when Dolores returned home and announced that she brought home food for the daddy-son duo, courtesy of her boyfriend.
"My boyfriend David, he sends home like a care package for Frank and Frankie," she explained during a confessional. "Frank and David get along, but a lot of people don't get it. They think my relationship is weird, and I don't know what to say. It's just — it's my norm." Dolores also admitted that while she's happy with David, Frank is the love of her life — and considering the way he was prying about the seriousness of her relationship, we can't help but wonder if Frank feels the same way.
"Do you guys tell each other you love each other yet?" he asked. "Do you guys talk about getting married? It's always been like a Mexican stand-off."
Dolores previously opened up to The Daily Dish about Frank moving back in. "My ex and his girlfriend have been together 11 years and they're in this thing where they keep fighting about the same thing," she explained. "Nothing's getting better, so it's time to take a break. I think after 11 or 12 years, it's worth giving it a shot, maybe you need a little break and not be in the same house and argue about the same things, so he moves back in with me."
She continued, "It's the greatest thing! I come home, he's mopping my floor, he's handling my appointments, he's doing the dishes, he's paying all the bills."
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
