Teresa Giudice is seen telling Dolores Catania and her boyfriend, Paul “Paulie” Connell, about an alleged takedown the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast planned against her husband, Luis Ruelas, ahead of the season 13 reunion in a sneak peek at the premiere episode of season 14.

In addition to shading John Fuda, 37, for his refusal to speak to Luis, 50, away from the cast and offering an update on where she stands with Danielle Cabral, 38, Teresa, 51, revealed that Dolores’ ex-husband, Frank Catania, 58, shared some upsetting news with her after the reunion was filmed.

“Frank told Louie that they all met at [Margaret Josephs‘] house before New York happened to have a plan to go against Louie and I,” Teresa revealed to Dolores, 53, and Paulie in the sneak peek.

She then further explained the situation in a confessional.

“After New York, Louis was really upset. For Frank to say anything negative about Louie [was] so wrong,” she shared, giving a nod to their past tiff over Luis working with Frankie Jr. and the issues Frankie had after Luis suddenly shut down his company.

“So then after New York, my husband reached out to Frank. They made up and he’s like, ‘I just want you to know that they all came up with a plan trying to take Louie and myself down. [Brittany Mattessich] and I didn’t go.’ So thank you, Frank Sr., for that one,” she continued.

At the season 13 reunion, Frank seemingly blamed Luis for the high level of tension between the cast, saying, “There has been such angry, angry arguments in this show, and it has never, ever gotten to the point it has gotten to right now — and the only thing different is Louie.”

He also said that after season 13 wrapped, Luis “f*cked me this year for no reason and I did nothing but try to help him.”

“Normally, I keep my mouth shut. Not today,” he warned.

As Teresa confirmed that Luis and Frank are in a better place today, she said the same couldn’t be said for Luis and John.

“I have to say, Louie was such a gentleman. He texted John the other day … He said, ‘Can we meet for a cup of coffee?'” she recalled as Luis said he wanted to “clear the air.”

However, after reaching out, John suggested to Luis that they wait to speak until an upcoming cast event.

“To me, that’s not the right move,” Teresa said.

“It’s just a matter of manly respect to sit down and talk,” Luis added.

Meanwhile, Paulie seemed to agree.

“It’s a private conversation, you should have it private,” Paul said. “It’s between you two.”

“Yeah, I don’t need an audience,” Luis replied.

Also in the sneak peek, Teresa revealed where she stands with the rest of the cast.

“[Danielle]’s great. She’s awesome. She and [Nate Cabral] are awesome. [Jennifer Aydin]’s great … I’m gonna see Margaret. ‘Hello. How ya doing?’ I don’t speak to my brother and Melissa,” she stated.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 14 premieres on Sunday, May 5, at 8/7c on Bravo.
