It is already clear that Season 11 of Real Housewives of New Jersey is going to feature juicy drama between “OG” Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider. The two ladies have never been close, and frequently clash. And it doesn’t help that Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga is Team Jackie.
Apparently, Teresa started a rumor that Jackie’s husband, Evan Goldschneider, was cheating on her. When all her RHONJ co-stars took Teresa’s side, with the exception of Melissa, Jackie refused to film. She also missed the cast trip to Lake George. Who can blame her? I’d hate to be stuck somewhere with this crew with only Melissa as an ally.
Despite the extreme circumstances of back-to-back jail sentences and a deportation to Italy, Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice managed to get to an extremely amicable place as exes an co-parents. He even recently called out Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga for attempting to “destroy” Teresa’s happiness instead of just letting her enjoy in her new relationship with Luis “Louie” Ruelas. Talk about amicable!
In 2020, Joe told Wendy Williams that he was casually dating a lawyer who also lives in Italy. He didn’t mention her name though. It’s unclear if Joe is still dating that lawyer he mentioned, but he is in a serious relationship. It’s just uncertain if this woman is the lawyer he previously referenced.
When Real Housewives of New Jersey began, Teresa Giudice was all about the PDA with Joe Giudice, who she called “Juicy Joe.” She denied that they had legal troubles and stuck by his side. They both went to jail. He got deported.
Eventually, they faced the music and decided to get a divorce. And, now the two exes seem to be in a much better place. Joe even slammed Melissa Gorga a couple days ago, asking her to support Teresa and her new relationship with Luis “Louie” Ruelas instead of “trying to destroy her.” While the romance is new, Teresa is all in. They just bought a $3 million home together.
When Teresa Giudice told her cousins Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri that she was going to “cut the cancer out,” she meant it. From that moment on, their roles on Real Housewives of New Jersey diminished. After that, they disappeared completely.
Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga used to be friends with Kathy, but once, Melissa and Teresa “made up,” the Gorgas left the Wakiles in the dust; I.e. they stopped filming the show with them anymore.
Teresa Guidice has been through it. In the last five years she went to jail for a crime her husband committed, then had to raise four children alone while said husband served his own time. I won’t say his name because he deserves zero publicity and certainly not a reality series. That man also likely cheated on Tre and called her awful names. Then, in 2017, shortly after Teresa served time, her mom passed away. Her father, maker of delicious Italian dinners, soon followed in 2020.
Finally, the tables are flipping and Tre appears to be living her best life again. Season 11 of Real Housewives of New Jersey premiers tomorrow. Take a moment to think about this – has anyone ever said Tre should leave to make the show better? I really don’t think so, but I’m sure you’ll remind me in the comments! Point being, Tre is the essence of RHONJ. It looks like we’ll be seeing a whole new side of her since she traded up for a new man, Luis “Louie” Ruelas. Tre says he was sent by her parents (I believe it too), and now the couple has more news.
By all accounts, the Season 11 premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey is the one to watch. I feel like it has been approximately 3 years since we last visited the loving family of Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. Our very own Margaret Josephs is returning with an all new
face look. Jennifer Aydin is coming back to make you feel bad about your sad home with only two bathrooms, and Dolores Catania will continue to co-sign everything that comes out of Teresa’s mouth.
In the past Teresa has been known for her somewhat… aggressive attitude. Basically it’s Teresa’s way or the highway and if you’re not on board, good luck. Perhaps Tre’s negativity could have been due in part to her jail sentence, her ex-husband’s deportation, or the loss of her parents. But someone turned Teresa’s frown upside down and his name is Louie Ruelas. Now Jackie Goldschneider hopes Teresa will be too distracted by Louie’s
wallet love to come after her.
This is the first Real Housewives of New Jersey season where we will see a truly single Teresa Giudice. Previously, she faced cheating claims when she was photographed holding hands with a random 26-year-old guy while Joe Giudice was locked up. Now, she and Joe are officially headed toward divorce.
He’s dating a lawyer in Italy. And she’s dating Luis “Louie” Ruelas, which apparently happened after Season 11 finished filming. That means we are gonna see a lot from single Teresa, which Melissa Gorga recently discussed
because she always talks about Teresa.
I was scrolling through Instagram when I saw Joe Giudice post “Melissa Gorga needs to shut the f*ck up. Swipe up.” And you know what, I could not help swiping up on that one.
Normally, I pass up the clickbait content from former reality TV cast members, but with a title like tithe I couldn’t help being curious, especially since Melissa recently said she’s “done defending Teresa Giudice,” who she’s never actually defended in the first place. Well, Melissa may not want to defend Teresa, but Tre’s ex-husband has her back.
