The Real Housewives of New Jersey are bringing two new housewives into their circle — Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker — and, with Season 7 premiere of the hit Bravo television series on it's way, these latest introductions will also be stepping into your living room. One of the newest RHONJ cast members, Dolores Catania, is no stranger to these women. She might be a stranger to some fans, however, which means we need to ask the obvious question: who is Dolores from RHONJ Season 7?

Catania, a single mother of two, is actually said to be a family friend of fellow cast members Teresa Guidice (who has returned from prison for the new season), Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile, and the Manzo family. In fact, according to All About The Tea, fans have actually seen Catania before in tapings for previous seasons and at events for the show. But there's still a whole lot more fans need to know about one of the show's latest additions. 

First off, the New Jersey native is a whole lot more than a housewife and a mom. Aside from raising her two college-aged children, Gabrielle and Frankie, the happily divorced housewife has also held a number of jobs over the years. Catania has done everything from serving as a corrections officer to working as a surgical technician to acting as a realtor in the state she knows and loves. Most recently, she also owns a number of fitness centers in the area and is an active member in charity work as well. Basically, between working, staying close with her ex-husband of 15 years, raising a family, and being apart of the latest season of the Real Housewives, Catania might as well be called Wonder Woman. And, in the latest sneak peak of the new season, it seems like looking for love is just going to be another addition to her already busy schedule.

However, as fans can see in the Season 7 preview, having so much on her plate is just the cusp of what we can expect from Catania. Having a busy schedule, a strong Italian background, and a soft spot for her friends also proves that nothing is going to get past this straight-forward new cast member. At the 2:10 mark of the trailer, she is already letting her friends know how serious she is by screaming, "Trust me when I f*cking tell you, I've had enough of it all! I don't f*cling deal with this sh*t!" I'm pretty sure nobody is going to try and pull one over on this housewife. And, personally, I'm so excited to see how all of this goes down with someone like Catania on the scene.
