KEY POINTS

  • Teresa Giudice said she’s happy to have found her fiancé Luis Ruelas
  • The reality star called her boyfriend her “heart and soul” on Instagram
  • Margaret Josephs addressed her issue with Giudice and Ruelas’ romance

Teresa Giudice is still over the moon following her engagement to Luis “Louie” Ruelas, and she’s not letting anyone ruin it for her. 

The 49-year-old “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star took to Instagram Monday to share a snap of her and her 46-year-old boyfriend posing for the camera before boarding the luxury boat they rented for her eldest daughter Gia’s 21st birthday celebration over the weekend. 

In the photo, Giudice rocked an orange cutout dress that exposed her cleavage. She also wore large hoop earrings, a gold watch and her diamond engagement ring. On the other hand, Ruelas kept it simple by wearing an all-black ensemble. 

“You are my heart, my soul & my treasure so happy I found you [red heart emoji],” the TV personality wrote along with the hashtags #miami, #gia21st and #bestweekend.

Fans quickly flooded the post with positive messages for the couple, who appeared to have had a great time in Miami Beach, Florida. 

“I’m so happy that you found true love. God bless your unity,” one fan wrote. 

“So happy for your happiness. Glad you had a great time in Miami with Louie,” another commented. 

From the looks of things, Giudice just responded to the sweet post her beau shared on the same social media platform a few days before. 

On Saturday, Ruelas uploaded a black and white photo of a couple’s wrinkled hands on his Instagram account, and it featured the words, “I want to hold your hand at 80 and say we made it.”

He also shared a meaningful message from Dr. Seuss in his caption that read, “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

The pair’s lovely exchange on social media came amid Giudice’s rift with her “RHONJ” Season 12 co-star Margaret Josephs, 54. The two fought on the set over Teresa’s newfound romance with Luis, as seen in the trailer for the upcoming season, which premieres on Feb. 1. 

In the teaser trailer, Giudice called out Josephs for “trying to pop her love bubble” with Ruelas, and she also warned the latter that it was not happening. 

Speaking with Us Weekly on the “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast last week, Josephs doubled down on her issue with Giudice’s relationship with Ruelas. 

“I think I am very honest with the way I feel about certain things. Teresa doesn’t always like to hear that from me and she gets upset and obviously, it’s pertaining to her relationship. She gets very mad, and you know, she’s got a hot temper,” she said. 

Josephs then voiced a cryptic message without fully disclosing what went down with her fight with Giudice ahead of the show’s premiere. 

“If you truly care about someone and truly like someone it’s important to be honest with them. I’m not a yes woman, you know, at my age, I don’t have to ‘yes’ anybody to death. My best friends in the world — you have to be honest with everybody,” she said.
