Teresa Giudice is walking (er, driving) away from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The RHONJ star, 49, ratcheted up the drama in the show’s Feb. 22 episode by informing Bravo producers she didn’t want her fiancé Luis “Louie” Ruelas, 47, to feel uncomfortable during filming—and therefore stormed off.
Teresa and Louie have been the focal point of most of this season’s turmoil thus far, such as when a video of Louie at Warrior Camp sparked outrage among the Housewives. However, Louie is now the subject of another gossip. And this time it’s about his ex-girlfriend.
The complete breakdown is as follows:
Two former RHONJ cast members are now dating.
Louie dated Vanessa Moretto before meeting Teresa. (Vanessa has never made a guest appearance on the show.) Meanwhile, fans are aware that Dolores Catania, 51, of RHONJ, ended her relationship with David Principe in December 2021, a physician she had been dating for some years following her divorce from Frank Catania.
“They had no animosity toward one another,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “She gave her everything but received little in return from David. He was absent from her social life and made only a few appearances at her gatherings.

They had divergent lives and were unable to coexist. She wasn’t content on the inside, and for a time, she concealed her actual emotions from her pals.”
Now for the drama: David has confirmed his relationship with Vanessa to Us Weekly—and Dolores has some comments about the duo. “Dolores is unaware of Vanessa’s existence and has no knowledge of David’s contact with her,” a source informed the site.
“She hasn’t seen him since the summer, so anybody he dates is entirely his business.”
Additionally, Dolores wishes David “nothing but the best,” the insider added. (It’s also worth mentioning that Dolores appears to be “very content” in her current relationship with Paul Connell.)
“We haven’t communicated. I understand what I signed up for, and when something changes in your life, it’s only fair to share it with everyone, you know?” Dolores recently disclosed this to Us Weekly.
“[It was] time to move on for no cause. I’m certain he has nothing but positive things to say about me. I have nothing negative to say about him, but the moment had come.”
It is unknown whether the rumors will resurface during the upcoming season of RHONJ—stay tuned. The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres new episodes every Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. EST on Bravo.
