The one and only Dolores Catania is back on Season 8 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and she’s going public with her boyfriend, perinatologist Dr. David Principe — dishing the details to Life & Style.

“Doctors are very challenging to date,” Dolores, 46, said at the Sept. 23 Posche by Kim D & Jack Daniels Porsche Fashion Show. “He’s not my first doctor, so I can tell you that. His hours are insane.”

Dolores and David started dating after the Season 7 reunion last October, and it’s getting serious. Castmate Siggy Flicker gets the credit for making the love connection. At a christening of twins that David delivered, “He was the single hot doctor walking in,” Dolores says, “and Siggy goes, ‘Get the f–k away from him. He’s for Dolores!’ ”

“He’s a good-looking guy,” Dolores says of David. “My boyfriend is very secure with himself.” Get it, girl.
