Dolores Catania Says Her Family Contracted COVID-19 Over The Holidays, Margaret Josephs Reveals Her Husband Was Hospitalized After 'Entire Family' Got COVID!

Dolores Catania revealed that most of her family had COVID over the holiday. But the Real Housewives of New Jersey star seems to have managed to escape the virus.

Catania told Page Six that her daughter Gabrielle and son Frank Jr. started having symptoms on December 23, and then her ex-husband Frank tested positive, even though he didn’t suffer excessively from it.

“I never got it; I couldn’t catch COVID if I tried,” she joked. “I took care of everyone who had it in the house.”

The Bravo reality star said she quarantined just in case, and didn’t leave the house until January 3. “I was exposed to it. It was in my house, so I had no right to go out and spread it just in case I had it,” she told the publication.

Dolores shared that a few days before Christmas, “My daughter said, ‘Everything hurts me. My head hurts. The [bedsheets] on my back hurt. My body hurts me,’ and I told her, ‘You got COVID.'” She added, “And then my son was coughing, and I’m like, ‘You too?!'”

When asked if she was scared to catch COVID, she said, “No. Is a mother scared to take care of her kids when they have the flu? It’s my duty as a mother.”

Meanwhile, Margaret Josephs recently opened up about her family’s battle with the novel coronavirus last month.

In a recent Instagram video, Josephs and her Caviar Dreams, Tuna Fish Budget podcast co-host Lexi Barbuto shared they had been offline in recent weeks due to their COVID-19 diagnosis.

“We’ve been MIA and we’ve had COVID — the entire family,” Josephs began, according to PEOPLE. “We didn’t want to talk about it during Christmas because who wants to talk about COVID during Christmas,” she added, before sharing that they have all since tested negative and are “better now.”

Josephs revealed that her mom, Marge Sr., got infected as well as her husband, Joe Benigno, who ended up needing to be hospitalized.

“Joe and I got it the worst out of our entire crew,” Josephs said, noting that they battled the illness for about 17 days after testing positive the week before Christmas. “[Joe] actually had to go to the hospital — he had a 104 fever,” she added. “He got an antibody that made him better but he was getting fevers for 7 or 8 days.”

Since their diagnosis came just before the holiday season, Josephs spent Christmas only with her husband. “Joe and I were alone in the bed with the dog,” she said. “It was disheartening and depressing.”

She also shared some of the mental symptoms she experienced, including feeling like she had to “reevaluate” her life, reports the publication.

“It was rough and it also f---- with your head,” she said. “I was having crazy thoughts, I was reevaluating my life, having deep discussions. I was like ‘Do I want to live here? Do I want to stay in New Jersey? What kind of life is this?’”

“You don’t want to f------ get this and you don’t want to give this to someone else,” she said.
