“I know her and Dina do not speak,” the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, 49, mentioned in Friday’s episode of Christian Gray Snow’s “The Slut Pig Podcast.”
“But Dina’s in California, Dolores is here. So I can have relationships with both of them,” Giudice continued. “Dina never tells me anything about Dolores and vice versa. Dolores doesn’t say anything about Dina.”
The OG Bravo star — who has appeared on “RHONJ” alongside each ladies in full-time capacities at separate factors — mentioned that she needed to keep away from battle as her celebration was “small” and “intimate.”
“I was like, ‘You know what? She’s gonna be at the wedding, and she’ll be fine,’” she mentioned of Catania.
It was beforehand said at the “RHONJ” Season 12 reunion that Catania didn’t rating an invitation to the December 2021 fête as a result of she and now-ex-boyfriend David Principe had not been on a “double date” with Giudice and Giudice’s fiancé, Luis “Louie” Ruelas.
“I would have liked to have been there, but I wasn’t mad because really, all I care about is her. But I felt bad when people asked me [why I wasn’t there],” Catania, 51, instructed host Andy Cohen.
“So I called Teresa and said, ‘Was I not invited because you’re mad at me?’ And she’s like, ‘No, no, no, we only invited couples that we go out with,’” she recalled. “I thought, ‘That’s enough for me.’”
Giudice’s sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga — who, alongside castmate Jennifer Aydin, attended the occasion — mentioned she was “in shock” that Catania was not there.
“You guys have been friends for so many years,” Gorga, 43, famous.
Catania — who has moved on with businessman Paul Connell after splitting from Principe final yr — replied, “If that’s how Louie and her wanted that party, that’s fine. My concern is her enjoying her day.”
The “RHONJ” ladies have lengthy handled difficult dynamics. Giudice is shut with Manzo, 50, who has distanced herself from Catania over time. (Giudice confirmed on the “Slut Pig” podcast that Manzo is in her bridal occasion, whereas Catania and Gorga weren’t requested.)
“We just went our separate ways, I guess. Some people like to move on from another life and like to leave what’s behind them for a reason, I guess, whatever reason that is,” Catania mentioned on the “Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino” podcast in February 2021, explaining her fallout with Manzo.
“Maybe they think you know too much about them, or maybe they’re not who they say they are. Whatever the case is.”
Meanwhile, Catania is pleasant with Dina’s sister and former co-star Caroline Manzo, who famously doesn’t get together with Giudice. As for the Manzo sisters, they’re presently estranged.
