Season 12 of Real Housewives of New Jersey will no doubt heavily feature Teresa Giudice and her man, Luis “Louie” Ruelas. Teresa and her ex-husband, “Juicy” Joe Giudice, went through the wringer. After Juicy served his prison term, he was deported. The couple divorced, and Teresa moved on.
In December of 2020, Teresa went Instagram official with Louie. RHONJ viewers finally saw Teresa’s “soulmate” in the final episode of Season 11. He was romantic, loving, and sweet to Teresa. You know, the opposite of Juicy. Louie and Teresa even went to the Bahamas so that Louie could meet Juicy. Awkward!
During the Season 12 premiere, a strange video surfaced of Louie on a beach with a bunch of shirtless guys. In the video, Louie was begging a woman for forgiveness. Everyone in the cast had concerns about this video. But Teresa ignored the chatter.
Louie’s ex-fiancée, Vanessa Reiser, alleged in a lawsuit that he “demanded that I be available for sex whenever he wanted” and “if I objected to his demands” he “would punish me.” The lawsuit was “settled outside of court for undisclosed terms.”
Teresa didn’t take kindly to Margaret dissing her man. In the trailer for season 12, there was an epic showdown in Nashville between Margaret and Teresa. Teresa called Margaret a “disgusting white trash b*tch” before tossing plates and food across the table at her co-star.

Teresa told Entertainment Tonight that she doesn’t care about the weird video of Louie that shook her co-stars. “If I don’t care about it, no one else should care,” Teresa stated. “He’s dating me, not everyone else…He’s engaged to Teresa Giudice, yes!”
Of course, Louie’s most vocal critic is Margaret. “I’m not sure [we can be friends]. I’ve done nothing to Margaret, nothing at all.” Teresa stated. Well, that’s not true. During Season 10 of RHONJ, Teresa encouraged cast member Danielle Staub to pull Margaret’s ponytail.
Teresa said that she didn’t dig into Margaret’s past “because, of course, she puts it all out there. So, for someone to try to hurt you for no reason, it’s like, where does that leave you?”
The mother of four continued, “I’m hurt and disgusted, I really am. And you know me, it takes a lot for me to forgive someone. So, I don’t know,” Teresa stated.

“I don’t know, because that’s the thing, I was so down, and then I was so happy. And then you’re trying to hurt me. For what reason? You know what I mean?” Teresa commented. “It’s sad. In life, you should want to pick people up.”
Teresa explained that she “was in a sad place” when she met Margaret. “I just had lost my mom and that’s when I met her. She cried with me…Then, I lost my dad. I had a lot of sadness in my life since I met her,” the author shared. “This time, I’m so happy and seeing one of my, supposedly my, friend — I thought she was my friend — so it just saddens me. It does.” This friendship is over.
While Margaret claimed that she was looking out for Teresa because she cared, Teresa dismissed that notion. “I’ve been around the block and then some and then some. I’ve been through more than she has ever been,” Teresa remarked. “Nobody needs to show me anything…nobody has to act like they’re concerned for me. When I know more than you know, there’s no concern there,” she added. “Let’s just leave it at that.”
