Dolores’ new digs will also be home for her son, Frank Catania Jr. The 21-year-old has an upcoming summer internship at investment bank Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. She previously told the publication that her son will be working 16-hour days, so she plans on using the apartment as a place to host friends. “Frankie’s not going to be there,” the reality star said. “There’s a rooftop, and I’m, like, ‘Whoa. I’m going to have friends over.’ I’ve never had that before.”

“The first half of my life was for everyone: my kids, my family, my ex-husband, anybody who was in my life,” Dolores explained. “Before I have that again, I would like to get to know myself better. I’m working with a shaman. I’m doing a lot of spiritual stuff. I’m a devout Catholic, but I think there’s so much more to learn, and I want a clear mind before I make any other decisions in my life."

When asked if David’s reluctance to pop the question influenced the reality star to move to Manhattan, Dolores said that there’s more beyond the surface. “It’s not just a ring,” the mother of two dished to Page Six. "I think that even if there was — I think it’s the timing for me. He didn’t. And I’m kind of glad he didn’t because now my mindset isn’t there anymore.”

“I am not single, but not engaged. Not married,” she continued. “I envision walking around. My friend told me that there’s all vendors and stuff by South Street Seaport. I’m going. My boyfriend works seven days a week.”
