Dolores Catania recently spoke to E News about the lack of her co-stars' presence at the wedding, saying that Teresa was devastated that they skipped the wedding since he was going to be the only family member to attend.
"I did say this to Melissa, I just wasn't surprised because I knew they weren't in a good place at the time. It wouldn't have been organic to have her in it because they weren't really getting along from what I had seen."
