Should Kyle Richards remind followers to respect new owner of previous home?

In a recent interview at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, Dolores Catania’s boyfriend, Paul Connell, spoke about the tensions between Teresa Giudice’s husband, Luis Ruelas, and the cast members of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Connell stated that the energy is different and that things are not in a fantastic place between Ruelas and the other husbands of the cast.

During the Season 13 reunion, several cast members accused Ruelas of hiring a private investigator to investigate them. Joe Giudice, Teresa’s brother, also called Ruelas a “lady abuser” and said that he doesn’t respect him. Connell mentioned that while he personally doesn’t have any beef with Ruelas, other husbands may feel differently.

In previous episodes, Ruelas and Connell almost came to blows over Ruelas not inviting Joe Gorga’s mother-in-law to his wedding and tension regarding a business deal. Connell admitted that it can be tough to stay above the drama while filming a reality show but said that he tries his best to avoid it.

Connell is now more focused on the next steps in his relationship with Catania. He confirmed that they are waiting for his divorce to be finalized before they can tie the knot but stated that they have a plan in place. As for whether they will marry on TV like Giudice and Ruelas, Connell said that it’s up to Catania to decide.

Connell and Catania have been dating since late 2021 and have had a smooth relationship so far, except for some initial resistance from Catania’s ex-husband, Frank Catania. However, Connell stated that they are finding common ground and getting along well. He joked that Frank might pull one last prank at their wedding but believes that they have a good blend as a family.

In conclusion, the energy is different between Luis Ruelas and the other husbands on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Paul Connell expressed his support for everyone on the show but acknowledged the tensions between Ruelas and the cast members. He also discussed his relationship with Dolores Catania and their plans for the future.
