The writing has been on the wall for a while as to whether Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice would stay married to her husband, Joe Giudice. After completing his 41-month prison term for fraud, Joe was taken into ICE custody. In October, when his appeal bond was denied, Joe requested to return to Italy to await the final decision in his deportation case.
According to People, on December 17, Teresa and Joe decided to separate after being married for 20 years. The couple were plagued by cheating rumors. Teresa was spotted holding hands with her much younger
boy toy platonic friend, Blake Schreck, in February of 2019. The couple was spotted together previously in December of 2018 looking very romantic platonic.
Now RHONJ viewers have been introduced to the man who is installing Teresa’s dream backyard pool. His name is Tony Delorenzo, but he also answers to “pool boy.” The couple dated as teens. The duo certainly was flirty as they discussed the plans for the pool and reminisced about their dating days.
Teresa’s four daughters flew to Italy to spend Christmas with their father. But don’t worry. Teresa wasn’t sitting at home alone, binging on ice cream and weeping over the demise of her marriage.
Melissa shared a video to her Instagram Story of herself with Tony. “I just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Tony, Merry Christmas,” Melissa said. “We’re the new couple, “Tony replied. “OMG!” Melissa added. I must say that I like Tony’s sense of humor.
Joe Gorga, Teresa’s brother, also got in on the social media antics. Joe shared a video to his Instagram Story. In the video, Tony said, “I got divorced yesterday.” Joe responded by saying, “The pool boy, here we come!” Tony isn’t a fan of his RHONJ nickname and said, “What I tell you about that pool boy shit?!” In another video, Teresa and Tony are shown sitting next to each other in a large group of partygoers.

Tony posted a photo to Instagram of himself with Joe, along with the caption “Merry Christmas me and my boy 40 years @joeygorga.” It looks like Joe is comfortable with Teresa’s old squeeze/possible new squeeze/platonic friend.
According to TMZ, this isn’t the first time that Teresa and Tony were spotted together. The couple was seen walking into a breakfast place on December 21. Tony had Teresa wrapped up against him as they walked, and the duo was seen hugging, too. Stay tuned to see if Tony is Teresa’s new love interest. Or just another touchy-feely friend.
