Now, this is the real deal! It seems that the writer and fitness competitor Teresa Giudice’s new boyfriend Ruelas is the best thing she could have gotten in 2020.
Tresa gushed over boyfriend Luis Louie Ruelas as she made their fresh romance Instagram official. “The best thing that came out of this year,” the 48-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star captioned a kind social media upload on Tuesday, December 22.
Giudice cozied up to the 46-year-old manager in the photo, who wrapped his arm lovingly around the reality TV personality’s waist, as they were smiling.
Some famous friends were ready to congratulate the star on her new relationship with Luis. Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’s Mary M. Cosby gushed over the beautiful couple.
Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick commented, “@teresagiudice glad to see you two happy; you’re glowing.” Celebrity stylist Brad Goreski commented, “Yaaaaaaassssss work Teresa!
Dina Manzo commented on the star’s new Instagram post, “So so happy for you.” Co-star Jennifer Aydin repeated, “So happy for you.” Margaret Josephs also added, “You deserve all the happiness and love.”
Teresa Giudice’s New Boyfriend Ruelas After her Split
In November, it was confirmed that the New York Times bestseller cookbooks writer had moved on with Luis Ruelas nearly one year after calling it quits with now-ex-husband Joe Giudice.
Joe and Teresa Giudice split after 20 years of marriage wasn’t a decision that came overnight. A close source to the family reported that Teresa and Joe had been separated.
The pair, who share daughters Gia, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 11, confirmed their separation back in December 2019 after 20 years of living together.
The Giudices separated months after Joe was released and finalized their divorce in September. The media personality’s former husband is reportedly both aware and supportive of Teresa’s new relationship with her new boyfriend, Ruelas.
Teresa and Joe were heavily featured on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey and share four daughters. In 2009, the pair filed for bankruptcy, which set off a series of legal battles ending with the two being convicted for various forms of fraud.
A source revealed at the time that the romance was “very new, but they are happy.” Weeks later, the Bravo star opened up about her new man for the first time and admitted that she didn’t want to rush things.
“It’s honestly new, so I’m taking things slow, and we’ll see where this goes from there,” Teresa said throughout a November interview on Watch What HappensLive with Andy Cohen.
Joe Giudice Dating Scene Following his Split
A source explained about the former couple in September “The two are supporting each other 100 percent as they each seek their happiness, Joe is in Italy for now, and Teresa is in New Jersey. Their main focus is and will continue to be their four beautiful daughters.”
Joe moved to Italy in October 2019 after a judge commanded him to be deported to his native country following his 41-month jail sentence. Both the former production business owner and the star served time after pleading guilty to many federal fraud charges in March 2014.
After nearly a year distant from their father, the couple’s daughters visited Rome in November. “Miss them [sic] so much already,” He captioned a picture of his kids later that month as they returned to New Jersey to spend Thanksgiving with Teresa.
The star showed her ex some love at the time, responding with two red heart emojis. One month earlier, Joe announced that he’s been getting back into the dating scene. “I am actually seeing a lawyer,” he told Wendy Williams in October.
“She is helping out a lot out here; it’s great since I have many things going on out here, and she’s putting together a lot of chances for me.” Joe continued, “We’ve seen each other; you know what I mean? I wouldn’t say that we’re boyfriend, girlfriend; however, we’re kind of, like, hanging out a lot.”
More couples have separated recently, including Christina Anstead’s divorce from Ant. Less than two months after confirming their separation, Christina Anstead officially filed for divorce from Ant Anstead.
