If you're a reality TV fan, you're in for a real treat.
hayu, a new subscription video on-demand service that delivers thousands of hours of top reality content, just launched in Canada. It's portable, affordable and fast. Its launch presented me with the opportunity to chat with Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dolores Catania. Check out our Q&A below:
Reality TV seems to be taking over the world and it’s incredible that hayu is launching in Canada. Do you have any reality show guilty pleasures?
New York and Dallas. I watch my friends, so Real Housewives of New York and Real Housewives of Dallas.
What have you learned about yourself throughout your time living life in front of a camera?
That people find what I thought was normal to be intriguing and people find my life intriguing.
How have you grown and/or changed since your first season on the show?
I grow and change every year regardless. All the time, regardless of what I’m doing.
I was broken when I started the show and I’ve come a long way with my self-esteem. It was very low when I started the show. The thing that changed me the most, was that I never used to share my life and my issues with a group of women. I always worked through things myself and having to share my issue with a group of women and with the world, being forced to in front of a camera, really helped me.
When I first started the show Jacqueline and Siggy threw a party for me and I wouldn’t come out of my room. I bought a size 10 dress when I as a size 2. I was so skinny from going through a bad breakup, having to start over and having the rug ripped out from under me and actually the show helped me. A lot of times the show doesn’t help people but its helped me get through some things. Even Andy [Cohen] said it looked like it worked in a positive way for me.
