When Jackie confronted Teresa, she used an analogy about Gia using illicit drugs to prove a point about spreading baseless rumors about people, which did not go over well.

Teresa ended up storming out of the house while shouting expletives, and she continued to fight with Jackie throughout the season.

Gia spoke with Andy Cohen for the Watch What Happens Live “Bravo kids” special and in Entertainment Tonight sneak peek of the show, Gia recalled her reaction to Jackie‘s comment and shared that she had actually asked to meet up to discuss the drama.

On Friday (April 23), the 48-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to Instagram to share a slideshow of photos with Louie in honor of his 47th birthday, along with a super sweet message.

“Happy Birthday to my beau @louiearuelas I’m so eternally grateful we found each other. You have shown me such love, kindness, openness & I feel lucky everyday to have found you!💕” Teresa wrote. “I know we go together so well & I can’t wait to celebrate this birthday along with all the birthdays to come in our future. Love you Louie!”

Then on Saturday, Teresa shared more photos of the party she threw for Louie from the night before.

“Happy Birthday @louiearuelas loved celebrating your birthday with you & your family hope you enjoyed everything. I adore 🥰 you❤️” Teresa wrote along with a photo of she and Louie poising in front of a massive balloon display.

Teresa first went public with her relationship with Louie in December 2020, months after she and ex-husband Joe Giudice finalized their divorce back in September after 20 years of marriage.

In a recent interview, Teresa gushed about Louie, calling him her “soulmate.”

Teresa Giudice Is Reportedly Afraid of Being Fired From 'RHONJ'

Teresa Giudice is reportedly afraid of getting axed.

The 48-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star allegedly invented a rumor that her castmate’s husband cheated because she’s worried she’ll be fired if she doesn’t come up with a compelling storyline, Page Six reported Sunday (February 21).

Teresa kicked of Season 11 of the hit show by voicing a shocking rumor that she “heard” that castmate Jackie Goldschneider’s husband Evan “screws around” with women at the gym, except sources tell Page Six she didn’t hear the rumor at all.

“She’s being watched by the network and needed a story to stir the pot. She had zero proof [that he cheated] and made up the story because Bravo has been getting rid of original Housewives. [She’s] too expensive and they can filter through different women. She’s desperately trying to stay relevant,” the source told the outlet.

Teresa has a member of the cast since the show first aired in 2009.

“The core principle of reality television is authenticity, and I don’t believe there has ever been a more authentic Housewife than Teresa Giudice, and there never will be. She is without peer in what she and her family have shared with the cameras over the years. When you are as real and authentic as Teresa has been, you don’t need to pull stunts or manufacture story to be relevant and that is ridiculous for anyone to suggest otherwise,” her lawyer James J. Leonard Jr. countered to Page Six in a statement.

“There wasn’t even a question about whether he cheated on me…the only reason I was upset was because of her trying to spread a rumor — not because I ever questioned my husband,” Jackie told the outlet.

Teresa is the highest paid Housewife. If they get rid of her, it’s because they pay her too much and her act is no longer worth it, but she’s been a franchise favorite forever,” a source also told Page Six.

Teresa recently opened up about her new boyfriend, calling him her “soulmate.”

The 48-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star got candid about her relationship in an interview with E! News.

“I know my mom and dad sent my boyfriend to me. They did, you now, because my dad left me and he’s like ‘you can’t stay alone’ so I know he sent him to me. Him and my mom, they really did. I swear, I asked them to send me an amazing person and then I met him a few weeks later on the same street,” she gushed.

“I was walking by at the Jersey Shore and he was packing up his car to go back home,” she said, explaining they’ve been together ever since.

“Everything’s really good. I’m so happy. He’s amazing, he’s beautiful inside and out. He’s really special,” she said.

Teresa‘s four daughters Gia, Milania, Gabriella and Audriana have already given Luis their approval.

“They like him, they think he’s great also, which I’m glad,” she said.

“And Joe‘s happy for me, I’m happy for Joe. Right now he’s living in the Bahamas so everything’s good. We’re all a happy family, which I’m glad,” she explained.

“We didn’t share until we needed to, you know? So the girls went to Italy and met his girlfriend, Gia and Milania went and met his girlfriend. And then when I met Luis, I didn’t tell them right away but when it was the right time I told them and it was all good and he was happy for me and I’m happy for him.”

When asked if she could get married again, she said: “I don’t know. I have no idea. I have no idea what’s going to happen. I hate answering questions for the future because I remember doing that when the show first started and then look what happened. So I just like to talk about the future. I’m all about whatever is meant to be is meant to be.”

Teresa Giudice Reveals If She Slept with Estranged Husband Joe Giudice When Visiting Him in Italy

Teresa Giudice is opening up about her trip to Italy where she and her daughters went to visit her now-ex husband Joe Giudice.

In a sneak peek from the upcoming installment of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Teresa, 47, talked candidly about her feelings about Joe, 47, admitting she was not sexually attracted to him when she and her daughters went to visit him back in November.

“Were you attracted to him when you saw him?” host Andy Cohen asked in the clip at BravoTV.com, to which Teresa shook her head and said, “No.”

Teresa
and daughters Gia, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11 went to visit Joe in Italy, where he awaits the ruling of his final deportation appeal. The trip marked the first time the family was all together since 2016 when he went to prison for fraud.

Teresa said she was happy to see her daughters reunite with their dad, but she knew her marriage to Joe was over.

“Did you have sex with him in Italy?” Andy asked.

“No,” Teresa replied. “Thank god Audriana slept with me every night. She was supposed to stay with one of her sisters but she wanted to stay with me, so it was a good c—kblocker.”

Teresa went on to explain that her feelings for Joe changed after her mom Antonia Gorga died in March 2017. Her death came just over a year after Teresa was released from prison after serving 11 months for fraud.

“Everything just changed after I lost my mom,” Teresa said. “I just became very resentful, and that’s I think when it died out.”’

Shortly after returning from the trip, Teresa and Joe announced they were separating after 20 years of marriage.
