Dolores Catania showed off her slimmed figure on Thursday after admitting she was taking a new celebrity weight-loss drug.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey reality star, 52, flaunted her slim figure in a form-fitting black long-sleeved midi dress with cream heels.
Catania opted for a glamorous makeup palette and accessorized her look with pink nails, a delicate gold bracelet and a gold watch.
The businesswoman wore diamond earrings that peeked out from behind her long brown tresses in a sleek, straight hairstyle.
Her boyfriend, actor Paul Connell, joined the reality TV star as they toured SiriusXM Studios in New York.

Keeping up with the Housewives: Catania said she doesn’t want to be The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s heaviest cast member. “I wasn’t going to come [the] the reunion seemed bigger than anyone else so I jumped on the bandwagon,’ she said
Connell coordinated with his date in an all-black outfit with suede boots, a gold watch and clear-rimmed glasses as he posed alongside Dolores.
Last month, the philanthropist and entrepreneur admitted that she lose weight with the help of diabetes medication.
A week after his admission, Catania doctor Rocio Salas-Whalen defended his decision to prescribe Mounjaro, a drug similar to Ozempic, in an interview with Today.
“Anytime we see someone who we think doesn’t need the drug unless you’re their doctor, you don’t know their medical history,” she said.
Salas-Whalen went on to say that the general public shouldn’t be rushed to respond when an individual admits to using the drug, which has been widely touted as an easy way to lose weight in a short time.
“No one can assume just by looking at someone that they don’t need it or are doing it for the wrong reasons,” she said.
Catania discussed using the weight-loss drug Mounjaro during an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, 54 years old.
When Cohen asked Catania if she was using the drug, she replied, “What housewife isn’t on Ozempic?”
Beauty: Catania wore diamond earrings that peeked out from behind her long brunette tresses in a sleek, straight hairstyle and opted for smokey eyes, sculpted eyebrows, foundation, blush, lashes and a nude matte lip
Squeeze and tuck: In 2020 Catania underwent a tummy tuck and facelift and in 2021 she underwent full body liposuction and a ‘new vagina’
She then remarked that she didn’t want to be the heaviest person in the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“I wasn’t going to come [the] meeting seemed bigger than anyone else so I jumped on the bandwagon,’ she said.
“The meeting is in two weeks. I have a trainer [as well]” Catania said.
When asked if she had suffered any side effects from the host, the mother-of-two only replied that she was “not hungry”.
The TV personality then clarified that she was “actually [taking] Mounjaro”, which is a drug very similar to Ozempic.
After the episode aired, viewers flocked to social media to call Catania’s latest interview “unhealthy and triggering.”
‘Dolores saying it’s #Ozempic so proudly just kicked me out lol smh [shaking my head]’, wrote a Twitter user.
Another asked: “Wait, isn’t there a shortage of Ozempic for diabetic patients?” And Dolores just casually admitted that she’s on it with a big smile on her face?
A third noted that it was “a bit screwed up that Dolores and the rest of the #RHONJ cast” were “so quick to jump on the Ozempic bandwagon as their bandmate Jackie [Goldschneider] recovering from an eating disorder.
