There’s some bad blood brewing between two of Bravo’s biggest Bravolebs, according to Page Six.
The Real Housewives of Orange County alum recently revealed that Teresa Giudice unfollowed her after she compared Teresa’s fiancé Louie Ruelas to Vicki Gunvalson’s infamous scammer ex Brooks Ayers.
“So Teresa unfollowed me because I said that Louie gives me Brooks vibes — you know, Brooks Ayers from ‘Orange County,’ Vicki’s boy,” Tamra revealed on Thursday’s episode of her and Teddi Mellencamp’s “Two Ts in a Pod” podcast.
Tamra explained that compared Louie to Brooks on a previous episode of the podcast. She insisted that she only compared the two based on their shared affinity for love bombing their significant others.
“I said that because [of] the affirmation,” she said. If you remember Louie presented Teresa with a scroll listing all the reasons he loves her for their one-year anniversary. Brooks, on the other hand, used to give Vicki daily cards that declared his love for her.
“Nothing more than that, because he was very big on the affirmations, and I said it right after he did that whole scrolling thing,” Tamra added.
Teddi agreed, noting that “there’s just something [she doesn’t] trust about” Louie. She added that something about him “doesn’t feel right” to her.
Tamra first compared Louie and Brooks when she and Teddi had Teresa’s Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star Margaret Josephs on their podcast.
“I learned my lesson with Vicki when she was dating Brooks,” Tamra told March on the March 21 episode of Two T’s in a Pod. “I knew he was not a good guy, I know he wasn’t the guy for her, but I spoke out about it, and it backfired in my face.”
“At the end of the day, obviously, I was right, but it was so cringey the things he would do and say and the multiple cards. Luis is doing the exact same thing that Brooks would do to Vicki,” she continued.
Meanwhile, Teresa had publicly slammed the criticism Louie has received since appearing beside her on RHONJ.
Teresa insists that Louie wants nothing to do with reality TV but appears on the show to support her as it’s her job to share her life with viewers.
“This is not something [Louie] signed up for. He met Teresa Giudice and, of course, this comes along,” she said on E!’s Daily Pop. “Does he want to be on TV? No. But if he dates me, does he have to be on TV? I mean, of course, otherwise, everyone’s gonna be upset with me, like, ‘Why am I not bringing my boyfriend around?'”
The three-part RHONJ reunion begins on May 3 at 8 p.m. ET.
