We had previously decided not to publish the identity of Shane Wierks, Teresa’s rumored beau, that is until today. The reason being Shane is now speaking out on the record, addressing the rumors of an alleged romance with the Real Housewives of New Jersey star.
But first, sources continue to insist that Teresa, 45, and Shane, 32, are more than just friends in the latest print issue of Life and Style magazine (currently out on newsstands).
“Teresa publicly claims she and Shane are just friendly, but no one close to her believes her,” a source tells the mag. “She’d been talking about finding a man, and now it seem she’s found one.”
For starters, just who is Shane? Well, the single dad and successful business man happens to be a very close friend of both Joe and Melissa Gorga. And due to that reason, Teresa is able to openly hang around Shane quite a bit due to the fact that he’s a family friend. For example, above is a photo of Shane supporting Teresa at a book signing last October, and below is a photo of Shane hanging out with Teresa and the Gorgas.
In case you’re wondering, Shane is the same guy Kim DePaola was referring to when she accused Teresa of having an affair on the latest season of the RHONJ. Kim claimed back then that both Joe [Gorga] and Melissa had knowledge of the affair and were helping Teresa cover it up.
It was also reported last month that Teresa even brought Shane on her recent vacation to Cancun… as a friend of the family. Indeed when you look at both Shane and Teresa’s Instagram pages, you can see they were both in Cancun to ring in the New Year. And many don’t believe that was simply a coincidence following rumors for about a year now that they are secretly seeing each other.
“Teresa felt she could trust Shane,” reveals the source who doesn’t believe Teresa’s denials about the affair adding, “because he knows her family.”
So what is Shane saying about these allegations? Well he tells Life & Style there is nothing going on between him and Teresa, adding that she “has always been a friend and nothing more.”
Sources however state that Joe, who is due to be released in March 2019, will blow a fuse “when he hears about Shane.”
Below are more photos of Shane and Teresa.
