These Real Housewives stick together, y’all. Even though the Real Housewives of New Jersey crew doesn’t always seem to have each other’s backs, you can rest assured they’re there for one another when it matters most. Cast member Dolores Catania stopped by Life & Style recently to promote her partnership with Formaggio Cheese, and she spoke about her costar Teresa Giudice and the difficult time she and her family are going through.

When asked if she’d talked with the 46-year-old about her struggle lately, the 48-year-old was candid. “I haven’t. Teresa and I have been missing each other and we’re very busy,” she revealed. Undoubtedly, we know Tre has a lot going on with her husband, Joe Giudice, and his legal proceedings at the moment. But according to Dolores, the RHONJ OG is dealing with things quite well.

“Teresa’s doing, as always, amazing,” she explained. “She’s a very strong woman.” We’ve seen that time and time again now, from when her beloved hubby started his 41-month prison sentence back in 2016 to when he was released directly into ICE custody in March to await a potential deportation.

“But I never count out the fact that she is still human,” Dolores continued. “And at the end of the day, when it’s just her and herself, the dust has settled, the kids are sleeping and the workload has been done, I’m sure Teresa has some hard times.”

We can’t even imagine the difficulties Tre and her family are dealing with — and that includes her relationship with her sister, Melissa Gorga, which still seems to be strained somewhat despite the overwhelming legal drama Teresa is dealing with.

“I’ve been around [the] family, I mean for me, I’ve been around it a very long time. I’ve seen fights come and go. That’s it — they come and go just like most families that can get through things,” she told Life & Style about the relationship between the sisters-in-law. “Like, last year they were best friends.”

Let’s hope things calm down for Teresa and the Giudice’s — on all fronts. They deserve a bit of peace.
