This season of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey has introduced us to a significantly hornier and finally single Teresa Giudice. While the latest mid-season trailer shows that her new boo Luis Ruelas is making his RHONJ debut soon, Tre’s still single on the show. She’s up-front about wanting her “peach kissed,” is drinking pineapple juice by the gallon (to Joe Gorga’s horror) and obviously flirting with pool boy Tony Delorenzo whenever she can.
While Luis is apparently Tre’s “soulmate,” with Juicy Joe Giudice and their four dorters’ sign of approval, there’s undeniable chemistry between Tre and the hot pool boy. He’s old-school Italian, which we know didn’t go well for Tre last time, so maybe it’s better that they didn’t get together. Even though I ship it real hard. Melissa Gorga says he’s into younger women anyways, so the ship has sailed.
Even though Joe Giudice hasn’t appeared (aside from on Teresa Giudice’s phone screen) on the Real Housewives of New Jersey since going to jail and getting deported, he stays central to the drama. Tre and Juicy might have called it quits after their stints “at camp,” but Joe is being more faithful to his ex than he ever was during their marriage. Particularly, Joe has taken any chance he could get to bash Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga in the press, so it’s messy as ever.
The fight came to a head during last week’s episode when Melissa and Joe called out Tre for always taking her ex’s side. Joey G. says he puts the blame on Joe Giudice for his mother’s early death. In case you forgot, their mother, Antonia Gorga, died on March 4, 2017. And then in April 2020 “Nonno” Giacinto Gorga passed away. Joe and Teresa have both said that’s far from the truth, which is a bit of a surprise, considering we know that Teresa did blame her ex for making her miss out on precious time with her parents.
Bravolebrities are far from shy when it comes to cashing in on sponsored social media posts. When it comes to the Real Housewives Of New Jersey, the (totally lovable) husbands, kids, and wives have advertised sex toys to Cameo videos, and everything in between. You gotta respect the hustle – they might as well make the most out of their 15-minutes of fame. And they have to fund their glam squads and glamorous dinners somehow.
Even though Joe Giudice does not appear on RHONJ since he was deported from the U.S., he uses his Bravo status to make money off his huge following. Particularly, he’s guilty of posting click-bait captions related to the show alongside photos of vacationing with his kids and new girlfriend.
As Jackie Goldschneider said during the premiere episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 11, Teresa Giudice has had a rough decade. Unfortunately, Teresa lost a lot of sympathy from viewers when she started spreading cheating claims about Jackie’s husband.
Prior to all that, she was just having fun on the show… for the first two seasons anyway. In Season 3, her family members Joe Gorga, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile joined the show without telling her. They feuded for years. Then, she and her now-ex-husband Joe Giudice served back-to-back jail stints. Her mother passed away. Joe Giudice got deported. Teresa and Joe Gorga’s father died. She’s definitely had a lot going on, in the public eye, while raising four daughters.
Jackie Goldschneider delivered the analogy heard around the world during last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 11 premiere episode. Or at least the Bravo world. In response to Teresa Giudice refusing to take back the cheating accusations against Evan Goldschneider, Jackie said “Gia [Giudice] does cocaine in the bathroom at parties.” She wanted Teresa to understand the pain that she felt. However, Teresa just saw red and said the “C” word several times before storming out of Margaret Josephs‘ house.
Many people wondered why Jackie just didn’t bring up the cheating claims against Teresa to create a better analogy. Or even the cheating claims against Joe Giudice. Others are just confused by Teresa’s confusion. Dorinda Medley called out Jackie for being “the lowest of the lowest.” Margaret, Melissa Gorga, and Jennifer Aydin condemned Jackie for mentioning Gia. Jackie maintained that she had zero regrets. And, ironically, she said that “children and husbands are off-limits.” There’s a ton to unpack and many Housewives are speaking out, even a former New Jersey Housewife.
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.
In October 2020, the news broke that Bethenny Frankel and Paul Bernon split up after two years together. Other than that update, there didn’t seem to be much more to it. There were no rumblings of drama or scandal of any kind.
She even insisted, “not everything has to end badly.” Well, apparently, the romance didn’t actually “end” after all. Or if it did, it wasn’t over for long.
