A recently released Page Six exclusive showing a preview of tonight’s new Real Housewives of New Jersey episode, househusband Joe Gorga is going on the offense regarding Dolores Catania. What could RHONJ‘s resident manchild possibly have to say about Queen Dolores?
Well if you watch the clip at the source, it doesn’t look like Joe is intentionally attacking Dolores but everything that comes out of his mouth is offensive. It’s not clear how the conversation got started, but Joe brings up the fact that Frank once cheated on Dolores, claiming that Frank “ruined” Dolores.
That word causes gasps throughout the whole party. Even Joe’s wife, Melissa Gorga is appalled that her husband would go there and Margaret Josephs calls his take “chauvinistic.” Then in her confessional, she further says that Joe’s sentiment is deeply rooted in misogyny. Women don’t derive all their happiness from men, newsflash! Well, said sister!
Dolores brushes Joe off by calling him a neanderthal and saying, “I don’t think I’m ruined!” She’s not, most of us agree that Dolores is one of the best housewives on RHONJ right now.
And Jackie thinks Joe might be talking to Dolores but he’s actually making a pointed message toward his wife, theorizing that Joe is trying to tell Melissa if she ever leaves him or cheats on him, she’d be a broken woman too. He then tells Dolores that she has a “scarred heart.”
RHONJ: Dolores and Frank continue to be great friends post-divorce
“Don’t you want to be loved?!” He asks.
Uh, yeah, that’s why Dolores has a boyfriend named David! I might not like David myself but Joe has no place telling Dolores how she feels in her relationship.
For those who missed the history lesson on the relationship between Dolores and fan-favorite husband Frank, the two got married when they were pretty young before Frank cheated on her.
Currently, Frank and Dolores remain one of the most popular relationships on RHONJ as they’re still close friends and get along extremely well. Frank even gets along with Dolores’s current boyfriend David Principe. He even took care of Frank after he recently underwent surgery.
A new episode of RHONJ Season 11 airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. on Bravo.
