After skipping Teresa and husband Luis Ruelas‘ wedding in August, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member reacted to one of her followers, who wanted to know if she and Teresa had rekindled their friendship after their alleged falling out earlier this year.
“Are you and Teresa friends again?” the fan asked, as seen in a screenshot shared by Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram on November 13.
“We were never not friends,” Dina replied. “Sometimes friendships go [through phases] but in the end true friendships will always find their way back when the time is right.”
“Dina has made it clear that she does not want to be on camera, and Teresa is OK with it,” a source told Page Six. “Teresa respects Dina’s wishes and looks forward to celebrating with her in the future. They remain as close as ever.”
However, after Dina shared a series of cryptic posts amid Teresa and Luis’ wedding weekend, fans began questioning the true status of their relationship.
“The more you let go, the more your point of attraction elevates. The more your point of attraction elevates, the more your experiences align with your most deeply rooted desires. In other words, the more you heal, the more you live. There is no more important work that you can do, than the work you’re doing for yourself in this journey,” one of her messages read.
But when questioned about the topic on her podcast, Namaste B$tches, Teresa claimed Dina’s statements were not in regard to their friendship.
“I was in my love bubble so I really wasn’t paying attention to what was on social media and what wasn’t… But I heard she made a comment to fan, which I saw that she was saying that it had nothing to do with me,” Teresa revealed.
Teresa also addressed her relationship with Dina on the Two Ts in a Pod podcast, where she said she understood why Dina was unwilling to be part of her filmed wedding.
“We’re all good,” Teresa confirmed. “Once you are on TV and then you aren’t on TV anymore, you don’t want to be in front of the camera. I totally get it. It’s like you’re working, and you don’t want to work. Unless you are getting paid. And the thing is not that she wanted to even get paid, but I get it. And her husband [Dave Cantin] doesn’t want to be on camera.”
“I respect that,” she added.
