If you’re a Real Housewives of New Jersey fan, you were probably shocked to learn that Teresa Giudice was recently spotted holding hands with a younger guy in Miami just a month before her husband, Joe Giudice, may be deported. Turns out her RHONJ costars were just as surprised as you were.
“They had no idea she was dating someone else,” an insider close to the cast revealed to Radar Online on February 20. “She kept this away from the show. She didn’t tell the ladies at all.”
Despite the secret keeping, the 46-year-old’s costars are all for this new relationship she seems to be embarking on: “They said, ‘Good for her, he’s hot!'” Amen, the 26-year-old looks like a pretty great catch, if you know what we mean.
Only one of Tre’s fellow castmates isn’t too surprised about the whole thing — you guessed it, her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. According to the insider, the 39-year-old had a hunch Teresa was seeing someone else. “She won’t be surprised at all,” the source revealed. Oh damn! Looks like Melissa has the tea, people.
The fitness guru and her new and younger man, Blake Schreck, were seen “flirting, holding hands and cuddling” at a cocktail party in Miami on February 16, an insider told In Touch. “They looked really into each other and were having a wonderful time.”
In just about a month, Teresa’s husband will complete his 41-month prison sentence for fraud charges, but instead of coming home to his wife and family, he is facing possible deportation to his native Italy. To make matters even worse for the Giudice family, the judge actually ruled Joe “ineligible” to apply for readmission back into the United States following his potential deportation.
The married couple has spoken out about appealing the ruling in the past, but now, who knows what their plan is moving forward. Plus, word on the street is producers are hoping to capture Joe’s potential deportation on camera, according to an insider that spoke with Life & Style exclusively. Between that and Tre’s new boy toy, there’s a lot of drama going on in New Jersey, y’all.
“This is a story about someone helping a woman who had some wine and was wearing high heels to her car,” the RHONJ star’s attorney, James Leonard Jr., told Page Six. “That’s what you see in those pictures. There is no cheating, no divorce, no scandal and no story.”
