Teresa Giudice and her boyfriend Luis Ruelas have joined Joe Giudice and their daughters in The Bahamas.
Days after her four children traveled to Nassau to spend time with their father, the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member and Luis, who she’s been dating for the past several months, landed on the island with his sons and joined Joe and the girls for dinner at the Graycliff Restaurant.
As Joe came under fire on the latest episode of the show as Joe Gorga and his wife, Melissa Gorga, feuded with Teresa, the former couple, whose divorce was finalized in September 2020, was seen in a series of videos shared to daughters Milania and Gia’s Instagram Stories.
In the videos, Teresa and Luis sat beside one another as Joe sat in between Gia and Gabriella.
Following Wednesday’s drama-filled episode of RHONJ, which included claims of Joe having put Teresa in jail and her mother, Antonia Gorga, in her grave, Teresa spoke of the close relationship she has with her ex-husband on Instagram.
“Tonight’s episode is hard for my girls and I. Joe is the father to my children & even though we split I respect his relationship with my daughters so it’s hard for them to see my brother disparage him, for the sake of my daughters who have already been through so much loss. My mother adored Joe & that’s what my girls saw & remember,” Teresa said, adding, “I hope from this point we can all move forward on a more positive note for the sake of our family.”
After Milania shared a video of their family’s night out with Luis on her Instagram Stories, Joe re-posted the video on his own page.
“Great night out,” he wrote in the caption.
He also re-shared a photo posted on Gia’s Instagram Stories, in which the Rutgers student said her family “[sticks] together no matter what.”
“I truly appreciate & hope I will continue to be present in my best friend life. A great person, mom, and confident individual. Great meeting you and your boy,” he wrote to Teresa.
Luis was also active on his own Instagram Stories this week, re-posting a video Milania shared of their night out with Joe and sharing a selfie with Teresa and his sons.
Teresa and Luis’ outing with Joe comes just one week after Teresa appeared on Watch What Happens Live and told host Andy Cohen that her boyfriend was hoping to meet her ex.
“They’ve talked over the phone and Luis wanted to go to the Bahamas and meet him, which I thought that was the most amazing thing ever,” Teresa revealed. “He said he just wanted to talk with him and let him know that he’s not trying to take his place. But he wanted to meet him because I have daughters.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 11 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
