Joe Giudice is on the prowl and doesn’t care who knows it.
The ex-husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Guidice, asked a frisky question in the comment section of an Instagram post shared by the Bravo star, hinting that he was interested in her fiancé’s sister, Dr. Veronica Ruelas.
Teresa’s post featured a photo of herself posing with her two future sisters-in-law, Veronica and Jennifer Ruelas, sisters of her husband-to-be, Luis “Louie” Ruelas.
“Is the tall one married?” Joe wrote under a photo of the three women.
Teresa seemingly shares a close bond with Jennifer and Veronica, as she shared in her caption about “sisters in love.”
“Thank you to my beautiful sisters in love for always giving me a reason to smile. ❤️🎂🎉🍾🎈🎁,” Teresa captioned the post, adding the hashtags, “#50 #birthdaycelebrations #balloonsdecor.”
Teresa spoke to Page Six last month about her failed marriage, revealing that Joe was not involved in the planning of their October 1999 wedding.
“Wedding plans are going amazing. Luis is involved with me, and I love that. We’re doing it together, so it’s not just me,” she told the outlet. “I remember my first wedding; I did it by myself. But [Luis is] involved, and I love that.”
Luis popped the question in October 2021, about a year after Teresa and Joe’s divorce was finalized. Teresa and Joe share four daughters, Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12. Luis and Teresa’s wedding date is August 6th.
Teresa’s close friendship with Luis’ sisters stands in stark contrast to the tumultuous relationship she shares with her sister-in-law and Bravo co-star, Melissa Gorga.
Fans know that Melissa learned that she would not be included in Teresa’s bridal party, as the most recent season unfolded. Melissa’s husband, Joe Gorga, felt dissed by the snub, but Melissa pointed out that being part of a blended family comes with ups and downs.
“It’s just a very relatable situation. It goes on in so many families,” she said during a May appearance on the “Chanel in the City” Podcast with Chanel Omari. “It’s very common to clash a little bit when your blending families.”
Melissa revealed that she had no regrets over her failed friendship with Teresa, last month.
“It’s OK to say that we don’t have the best relationship and I don’t feel guilty saying that because I tried really hard and know that I tried hard — for my in-laws and for Joe,” Melissa said In a May 16 interview on the “Betches Mention It All” podcast.
“We are very loyal and we are the ones who don’t talk about it all the time but we actually do it,” she said. “I think there’s a big difference in saying, ‘I love my family. I’m loyal to my family’… and actually being the one who does something about it.”
