Dolores Catania isn’t looking forward to reuniting with her “Real Housewives of New Jersey” co-stars in a few weeks for the show’s highly-anticipated reunion.
During a recent episode of the “Pay Attention Puh-Lease!” podcast, the reality star revealed she’s been having a lot of “anxiety” about the group coming together amid the ongoing feud between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice.
“On a good day, we have anxiety about the reunion,” Catania, 52, said. “Anxiety is one thing, [but] I’m actually afraid.”
The estranged sister-in-laws got into a fight over the summer while hanging out at the house of Paul Connell (Catania’s boyfriend) after Giudice allegedly fed into rumors about Gorga’s infidelity.
To make matters worse, Melissa and husband Joe Gorga then skipped Giuduce’s nuptials to Luis Ruelas — leading to an all-out war between the two couples.
“I think that this [new feud] was a culmination of years of buildup and it all came to a head, unfortunately, right before [Teresa’s] wedding,” Dolores said. “And we just wish that that didn’t happen.”
Now with the ladies expected to come face to face for the first time, Catania fears things might get physical — but hopes the feuding family can control their emotions like she had to do with former frenemy Jennifer Aydin.

“All of us on the show — let’s face it — have to cohabitate with each other to an extent, right?” she explained. “Me and Jennifer had to make up.”
“You have to move on from things to an extent, and kind of live together — we travel the world together. We spend every day together. We do vacations together — short trips [like at the] Jersey Shore. We’re staying in the same houses. We’re at the same parties. Something has to give here. Something. To what extent? I don’t know.”
Catania previously claimed it was time for the Gorgas to cut off communication with Giudice on an episode of “Watch What Happens Live.”
“I think it’s time,” the reality TV star said. “I just think it’s time for them to really part ways. I do.”
She went on to explain that while she doesn’t “want” to see Giudice’s relationship with her brother, 48, come to an end, it might be the best option.
“If there’s no peace in their life being together, then I think it’s time,” she said.
However, Catania made it clear she isn’t “on Team Giudice or Team Gorga.”
“I’ve never took a side. With family, you don’t because you lose at the end of the day.”
