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.
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.
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.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey fans have seen so many changes in Teresa Giudice’s family. During Season 1, she had three daughters, Gia Giudice, Gabriella Giudice, and Milania Giudice. After that, we saw her give birth to Audriana Giudice during the Season 2 premiere.
She went from gushing over husband “Juicy” Joe Giudice to completing separate jail stints and blaming him for losing time with her mother before she passed away. In the midst of Joe’s deportation drama, the Giudices decided to divorce. In 2020, Teresa’s father Giacinto Gorga, aka Nonno, passed away. And, now, Teresa is a single lady… well she was. She’s actually in a new relationship with Luis “Louis” Ruelas and she’s actually thanking her parents for her new man.
