Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has found her soulmate, and she isn’t listening to any whispers about her fiancé Luis “Louie” Ruelas. There is some questionable baggage in Louie’s past, including that bizarre video from a warrior-style camp. Teresa’s RHONJ co-star Margaret Josephs asked a lot of questions and pissed Teresa off.
Louie proposed to Teresa in Porto, Heli, Greece. And he pulled out all the stops. There were roses, candles, a violinist, and fireworks. Teresa’ bestie, and former RHONJ co-star, Dina Manzo was there for the proposal, with her husband, David Cantin.
Dina posted a video of the proposal on Instagram and wrote that she “sobbed like a baby” when Louie popped the question.
During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Teresa shared some details about her wedding. It will happen this summer, and there will be eight ladies in her bridal party. None of her Teresa’s RHONJ co-stars will be in the wedding, not even her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga.
Kim DePaola has popped out of the woodwork with some information about Teresa and Louie’s big day. Remember that Kim D. was behind “strippergate,” when she plotted to take down Melissa, possibly with Teresa’s help. In February of 2021, Kim D. alleged that Louie was cheating on Teresa.
Page Six reported that Kim D. spilled some wedding details on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast. “I found out she’s getting married in August, Teresa. She’s getting married in August,” Kim D. stated. “Dina Manzo is the Maid of Honor,” she added. That makes perfect sense.
Kim D. asserted that she has the “inside scoop.” Sources told Page Six that Kim D’s details are “in the ballpark” of discussions that are happening about the wedding. Teresa hasn’t confirmed any of this information herself.
Kim D. continued to speculate on who would be in the couple’s wedding. She remarked, “I would definitely say Luis’ sisters. There’s no question.” Kim D. added, “I would say her daughters, too.” Duh.
Kim D. thinks that the “optics” are a high priority for Teresa and said that she believes that Louie’s brother will serve as Best Man, and his sons will be groomsmen. But Dina’s husband David could secure a spot as well. “Even Dina’s husband might be in it because they’re very close, the four of them,” Kim D. commented “They were just in Vegas together, celebrating one of their birthdays.”
How does Kim D. get all this information? She mentioned that Melissa and her husband, and Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, will be on the guest list. “She has to invite them. Trust me, if she didn’t have to, they wouldn’t be [invited],” Kim D. stated. “I know it. If she did not have to invite them, she would not.” That’s cold.
Teresa’s longtime friend, Dolores Catania, is apparently in danger of not getting an invite. Although Dolores is loyal to Teresa, she also is good friends with RHONJ alum Caroline Manzo, who is Dina’s estranged sister. Dolores wasn’t at Teresa and Louie’s engagement party, but she has been supportive of the duo’s relationship.
Kim D. predicted that Dolores will be invited. “Dolores has got a shot. Dolores is like 80/20 she’ll be invited –unless Teresa sees something on the show that she doesn’t like that Dolores did or said,” Kim D. said.
No word yet on if Kim D. will be stumbling around the dance floor at Teresa and Louie’s reception. My prediction? Her invite will be lost in the mail.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK THAT DINA WILL BE TERESA’S MAID OF HONOR? IS KIM D’S INFORMATION RIGHT ON THE MONEY?
