Dolores Catania The Real Housewives of New Jersey shared the reason she didn’t attend Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas’ engagement party. Dolores is known to be one of Teresa’s ride-or-die friends, on and off the show. The two have never had a problem since Dolores joined her real-life friend on the hit reality show. However, there seems to be some drama between Teresa and Dolores, and it could be on Luis, since he was the one who decided not to invite her to their engagement party.

Dolores and Teresa have been friends for years. Both have a history dating back to their youth, as they both grew up in New Jersey. Dolores joined RHONJ in Season 7 but had ties to many of the show’s OGs. Since joining the cast, Dolores has been an ally to Teresa and rarely addresses her most criticized moments. However, there have been hints of a possible feud between the two friends, given Teresa’s wedding plans.
