Dolores later reacted to her ex-husband's comment while speaking to E! News, saying she agreed with him. However, she was quick to note that she didn't expect they would be striking up a romantic relationship again.

"Safe to say I agree with him," she told the outlet. "You know, a soulmate I don't think has to be an intimate relationship. A soulmate can be a dog, a soulmate can be a child or a best friend, and Frank is definitely my soulmate in the fact that I've done past life things and it says me and Frank have been bonded for a long time together, so I could see that."

Dolores is currently dating entrepreneur Paul "Paulie" Connell. The two met when they were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend. After keeping their romance private for several months, they went Instagram official on Valentine's Day 2022.
