Fans can’t get enough of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dolores Catania‘s unconventional living situation — as she still resides under the same roof as her ex-husband, Frank. Their teenage son, Frank, previously admitted that his friends think they are “like, swingers” — and even their Bravo co-star, Danielle Staub, has some thoughts on the situation.
“I would love to tell you, but I don’t really know and I can’t quite understand,” she exclusively told Life & Style. However, she then added, “I actually really like Frank, he has been nothing but a gentleman. I can’t say that about all the husbands — but Frank doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He treats me with respect, and anyone who treats me with respect gets the same in return.” It’s nice that they get along so well!

Dolores previously addressed why her ex lives with her to The Daily Dish. “My ex and his girlfriend have been together 11 years and they’re in this thing where they keep fighting about the same thing,” she explained. “Nothing’s getting better, so it’s time to take a break. I think after 11 or 12 years, it’s worth giving it a shot, maybe you need a little break and not be in the same house and argue about the same things, so he moves back in with me.”
Frank even gets along really well with the mother-of-two’s current boyfriend, David. “My boyfriend David, he sends home like a care package for Frank and Frankie,” Dolores said on an episode of the reality series. “Frank and David get along, but a lot of people don’t get it. They think my relationship is weird, and I don’t know what to say. It’s just — it’s my norm.”
