After a whirlwind romance, Teresa Giudice and Louie Ruelas will be saying ‘I do’ this summer.
Naturally, the Real Housewives of New Jersey OG is knee-deep in wedding planning as she prepares to begin filming for season 13 on Monday, May 23.
In a new interview with Page Six, Teresa opens up about planning her dream wedding and admits that her fiancé, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, has been “involved,” which is a far cry from her ex-husband Joe Giudice.
“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,” Teresa admitted.
“I remember my first wedding; I did it by myself. But he’s involved, and I love that,” she added of Louie.
The longtime reality TV star also revealed that she and Louie have better communication than she and Joe ever did in their 20 years of marriage.
“We communicate. We get along so wonderful. It’s so great. He’s so good to my daughters; I love his sons. We have a beautiful family together,” she continued.
Teresa and Louie moved in together after just a little over a year of dating. They got engaged in October 2021 during a trip to Greece.
Meanwhile, Teresa tells Entertainment Tonight she’s “torn” about her and Louie’s wedding airing on season 13 of RHONJ.
“No, it’s not going — not on Housewives, no. So, we’ll see what happens,” Teresa admitted.
As for a possible wedding spinoff, the RHONJG OG said, “I mean, we don’t know… I haven’t decided, so we’ll see.”
“Of course, I want my fans to see it because they’ve been on this journey with me. So of course I want them to see it. I really do,” Teresa confessed. “It’s [also] something I’ll always have for myself, and, I don’t know. I’m still torn.”
“It’s my wedding and I want to have a great time,” she explained, noting that when a wedding is filmed for TV you “can’t play certain music” amid other things.
“So I don’t know, I’m very torn,” she added.
RHONJ will return for season 13 in late 2022 or early 2023.
