Still in her love bubble? Teresa Giudice moved out of the gaudy New Jersey mansion she built with Joe Giudice to blend families with new hubby Luis Ruelas. The French chateau is forever immortalized on the Real Housewives of New Jersey. But after her August 2022 nuptuals, it was time to move on.
“It is an adjustment,” Teresa told Us Weekly of her life after marriage. “Louie’s older son has autism, so that’s an adjustment for our family, and [we’re] doing a lot of charity work for the autism foundation. The girls are so amazing with him. … We love and adore him.”
Louis and ex-wife Marisa Dimartino Ruelas divorced in 2013. Their sons Nicholas and Louie Jr. have not appeared on camera yet. Teresa’s girls, Gia Giudice, 22, Gabriella Giudice, 19, Milania Giudice, 17, and Audriana Giudice, 14, have grown up in front of the RHONJ cameras.
Teresa credits her daughters for success adjusting to the blended family. She said, “As a mom, you never know if you’re doing a great job. But then looking at my girls to see how they interact with Nicholas, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, thank you, God. I’m doing a great job,'” Teresa added.
Luis and Teresa shared their passionate relationship on camera. The father of two was even introduced to the RHONJ cast on camera. When the two got engaged in Greece November 2021, the Standing Strong author shared the happy news with her vast social media following.
“My Fiancé you are such a beautiful person inside and out,” Teresa wrote via Instagram. “I love everything about you, especially your heart and the way you treat me and my daughters. You are amazing in so many ways one thing I admire about you is what a great Dad you are.” She continued, “I am so lucky to have found you thank you for coming into my life. I know my parents sent you to me from that day I prayed to them on Bay Blvd. I adore you endlessly. You are the love of my life, my soulmate and my everything. I Love you,” she added.

Their wedding was filmed for a RHONJ special that will air after the conclusion of Season 13.
“I can’t wait for the wedding special because I can’t wait to relive it,” Teresa said of viewing the production. “I was so happy, and I can’t wait to see it because I know there’s some things that I missed.”
So, will Luis and Teresa’s blended family love bubble be featured on the new season? Hopefully, because Teresa has been raving about her post-marital bliss. “It’s been pretty amazing,” she gushed. “It really has. Because listen, I’ve heard other stories with other families, but it’s been great.”
Maybe the Giudice daughters will be featured in other ways this season. Audriana excels at competitive dancing while Gabriella and Milania are on soccer teams. Gia is following her dream of becoming a lawyer. She announced a dream job with an immigration law firm. She will start her new position after finishing her degree at Rutgers University.
“Their whole experience influenced me, honestly, for the better,” Gia said of Joe’s deportation to his native Italy after serving a prison sentence for fraud. “I just want to help families and be able to be there for families and help children especially.”
