Ahead of part three of The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 reunion, Andy Cohen is dishing out the details on what to expect out of the “shocking” conclusion episode and revealing private investigator, Bo Dietl, contacted him regarding Luis “Louie” Ruelas’ claims that he hired the retired NYC homicide detective to dig up dirt on the RHONJ cast.
“I will say regarding the Jersey reunion, [it was] upsetting,” Andy told listeners on his radio show, Andy Cohen Live. “I know everybody’s talking about part three of ‘Vanderpump’ [Rules], but part three of Jersey is stunning and shocking, with the husbands out. It’s really wild.”
Andy then made the revelation that Bo “tracked [him’ down” to refute Louie’s comments that he and the newest Jersey househusband worked in tandem to gather information on his costars. However, Andy wasn’t completely buying the PI’s story.
“Bo Dietl tracked me down last week, and he was like, ‘Look, Louie never hired me’”, Andy recounted in a mock Jersey accent. “But you know, that doesn’t mean [he didn’t hire you.] Like, how would Louie come up with it on camera several times and say you got him info on people? And he’s like, ‘I don’t know, he’s just talking.’”
Andy then noted that his communication with Bo was not in person as he’s “never met” the investigator.
Louie outrageously claimed that he had a stack of information on the cast of RHONJ during the penultimate season 13 season finale. Later that night, he and his wife, Teresa Giudice, appeared on Watch What Happens Live where he admitted he had lied about hiring Bo out of “frustration” because he was at the “end of [his] rope.”
However, following his reneging of the comment, Teresa contradicted Louie’s assertion and said she defended and saw justification in why Louie would go to such great lengths to hire the PI. Prompting Andy to call her out on it.
Teresa later addressed her snafu on her podcast, Namaste B$tches.
“I got tripped up on that question … I thought that he was saying to me, ‘Can you defend it that he did not call the private investigator on everyone.’ So I was saying yes, he did not. I wanna put out there, sorry Andy, I didn’t understand the question correctly,” she said. “I’m not contradicting myself because I didn’t understand the question correctly.”
Bo has become a hot topic of conversation among the RHONJ cast and viewers alike. Despite Louie and Bo’s repeated denials, the two worked together on an investigation, Andy has previously said that was not the story Louie was pedaling at the reunion.
“That was not his story at the reunion. It was far different, and we really got into it, and it’s a major point of contention,” the WWHL host revealed on the Chicks in the Office podcast.
