RHONJ: Why Dolores Catania Isn't A Fan Of Dina Manzo

Once a Housewifealways a Housewife. The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Dina Manzo is still the talk of the Garden State and is even butting heads with current RHONJ star Dolores Catania off camera. 

Dina left the franchise after Season 2 to focus on her family. Her sister Caroline Manzo continued on RHONJ and landed a spinoff series before calling it quits amidst rumored marital problems. Dina stayed out of the Bravo spotlight prior to Season 11, where she gave her two cents about the feud between Jackie Goldschneider and Teresa Giudice. Per Page SixDina admitted to not watching RHONJ but that Jackie's comments about Gia Giudice were unacceptable. 

Dolores is close with the Giudice family, and even her son went to prom with Gia! Yet Dolores is still skeptical over Dina's true intentions. Keep scrolling to find out why Dolores doesn't trust Dina and even finds her "boring"! 

Dolores Catania thinks Dina Manzo is 'boring'

Well, Dina Manzo's personal life is anything but dull. In December 2020, Dina made the news for her ex-husband allegedly hiring a mob-affiliated hitman to attack her current husband.

Dolores Catania, however, revealed on the podcast Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino that she was originally supposed to be on Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 1. "I was [an] original cast member and it wasn't the right time for me," Dolores reflected, as reported by Reality Tea"Danielle [Staub] took my place." 

While Dolores is close with Dina's estranged sister Caroline Manzo, it seems she can't call Dina a friend, calling any RHONJ appearance by Dina "boring." Thankfully Dina relocated to California, so a rumored "pop-in" isn't an option. The cross-country move was indicative of what Dolores believes to be Dina trying to run from her Jersey roots. "Some people like to move on from another life and leave what's behind them, for a reason," Dolores hinted. "Whatever that reason is, maybe they think you know too much about them. Or maybe they're not who they say they are." 

Dolores summed it up concisely: "She's not my cup of tea." Seems like there won't be a Dina and Dolores spinoff anytime soon!
