Giudice also had the ring on when she was seen dancing with a male friend on the street on the picturesque island.

Also on the trip with Teresa and Louie was former RHONJ star Dina Cantin. 

Teresa and Louie met by chanced in 2020 in New Jersey. The couple saw each other several times at the Jersey Shore when Ruelas was exercising and Giudice was walking.

They didn’t formally introduce themselves until later on when Giudice was with friends though.

As the best-selling cookbook author relayed to Extra, ‘We started talking, he told us about himself. He had two business cards on him. He handed to me one and then one to my married girlfriend.’

She added: ‘All of a sudden, he drives up to us in the car. He said, “Teresa, my son wanted to know why I didn’t ask for your number.” I said, “I have your business card. I’ll text you.” My girlfriend took my phone and was like, “I’m texting him right now.”‘

The two went public with the relationship on Instagram in December of last year, several months after Giudice finalized her divorce from Joe.

The couple had dinner with Joe several months ago, and though it looked very ordinary on Instagram, Teresa’s ex told US Weekly the meeting was awkward.

‘You can all imagine how I felt when they walked in the room. It was awkward to see my ex after a lifetime together with someone else. Teresa and I decided to be honest and remain friends with one another for the girls.’

Teresa and Joe’s marriage deteriorated after they both served time in prison for fraud.  

Louie was engaged to Vanessa Reiser until March 2020, and has dated Paula Sanchez whom he split from in 2018. He divorced Marissa DiMartino in 2011; together they share two children.
