Frank Catania appeared on Tuesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, and in the audience during the taping was his girlfriend, Brittany Mattessic.
As he chatted about the 12th season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey with the show’s husbands following the airing of the dramatic three-part reunion special, Brittany was seen sitting beside Jennifer Aydin as Andy Cohen gave her a special shoutout.
“Wow, Frank brought his girlfriend tonight. Very exciting, Frank Catania,” Andy noted, as reported by Bravo’s The Daily Dish.
“You know it’s serious then,” Frank replied.
In a photo, Frank was seen posing with Brittany in the Bravo Clubhouse.
Photos were also shared of Brittany in the audience, including the one seen below.

While appearing on the Side Piece podcast earlier this year, Frank said Brittany, who he did not name at the time, doesn’t have “thick skin” and wasn’t concerned with the fame appearing on RHONJ could potentially bring her way.
“The limelight is definitely not primary to her,” he said. “[But she] gets along great [with Dolores Catania].”
He also said, “She’s never been on [the show]. And we took a little hiatus, we took a break, and we’re back together. And who knows? Maybe this year, the next season we film, she may make an appearance.”
In other news, the new boyfriend of Frank’s ex-wife, Paul Connell, took to his Instagram Story on Wednesday to share his thoughts on Frank comparing him to Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear.
“Hey Frank, no fear, buzz connell is here,” Paul captioned his post, along with a thumbs up emoji.
Paul then responded to a DM on Instagram from a fan who asked, “Paulie what do [you] think about the comments Frank made about you at the reunion?!”
“I was kind of sad!! TBH,” he answered. “Now everyone knows I’m a real superhero.”
While many took Frank’s comparison as a diss aimed at Paul, Frank confirmed he was not hating on Paul’s appearance on WWHL.
“Paulie’s a good looking guy,” he stated.
Filming on The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 is expected to begin sometime later this month.
