Teresa Giudice took to her Instagram page on Thursday to give fans a look inside the $3.3 million mansion she and her husband, Luis Ruelas, purchased in February 2021, about a year and a half before their August 2022 wedding.

On the heels of a series of videos shared by Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga, one of which featured the kitchen area of their own home, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star shared a video with designer Jessica Fratantoni in which “a kitchen fit for a [king] & [queen]” was highlighted.

Taking her Instagram audience into her and Luis’ 7,728-square-foot mansion in Montville, New Jersey (just three doors down from the $2.5 million home where Melissa and Joe once lived), Teresa showcased her bright kitchen, which features light cabinets, gold hardware, and marble countertops.

In addition to a stunning white backsplash, Teresa’s kitchen was outfitted with a farm sink with a gold faucet and black trim around the windows.

The black and gold features continued to the stove, where a giant hood boasted gold trim.

Teresa’s large island also features a smaller farm sink with a gold faucet.

On the opposite side of the room, a large, dark, mirrored cabinet can be seen alongside glass cabinets with a gold design.

Following the sharing of the video, Page Six reported that a number of Teresa’s followers noticed similarities between Teresa’s kitchen and that of Melissa and Joe.

“Isn’t this Melissa and Joe’s kitchen? If not, it looks identical,” one person wrote in a comment that seems to have since been deleted.

“It’s beautiful, but have you seen Melissa’s?!?!” asked another.

Meanwhile, a third person suggested that it may have been Melissa who copied Teresa’s kitchen, saying, “Omg, so Melissa copied your kitchen?! Omg!”

Teresa’s video was shared just under two weeks after Melissa took to her own Instagram page to show off her and Joe’s newly-constructed kitchen.

“We love to entertain … Kitchen space takes priority,” she told her followers on December 4, along with the video below.

As fans can see, the two kitchens both boast light cabinetry, large islands, and gold accents and hardware.

Although Teresa claimed she didn’t plan to move into the seven-bedroom home when she and Luis first bought it, the couple eventually shacked up in October of that year. And later that month, Luis asked Teresa to marry him during a getaway with Dina Manzo and her husband, Dave Cantin, in Greece.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 will premiere on Bravo sometime early next year.
