During Saturday’s Real Housewives of New Jersey panel, “The Garden State Dishes the Dirt,” Teresa confirmed her current relationship status with Blake before answering a question regarding her potential hookup with husband Joe Giudice in Italy.
“Yes, I am,” she confirmed.
As RHONJ fans will recall, Teresa and Blake, who is 21 years younger than the mother of four, were romantically linked after being caught together on New Year’s Eve. Then, after being spotted on a number of occasions in Miami, where they were photographed holding hands, those rumors were further fueled.
However, during Teresa’s recent Bravo TV special, Joe and Teresa: Unlocked, she insisted that if she and Blake were romantic, she wouldn’t have been seen with him publicly and would have instead stayed in her hotel room in an effort to hide their relationship.
After Teresa admitted her trip to Italy earlier this month “was very emotional,” she responded to a fan who asked her if she and Joe had hooked up during the trip.
“You’re gonna have to tune in,” she teased, according to The Daily Dish. “You will see if the boom boom happened.”
Meanwhile, sources close to Teresa and Joe are revealing they have been having “flirty” conversations since she returned from Italy and that the trip brought them closer together.
“Teresa and Joe have been talking and FaceTiming a ton since she got back to Italy,” a source told Us Weekly on November 15. “Who knows what their future is as a couple, but she’s been really happy and in a good place since she got back. Their interactions are a little flirty too, but that could just be the honeymoon stage all over again.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 10 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Bravo TV.
