Bad news for Juicy Joe: the future sister-in-law of Teresa Giudice is no longer on the market.
Melissa Gorga wants her former brother-in-law to know that he can’t date the sister of his ex-wife’s fiancee, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, Dr. Veronica Ruelas.
“I mean, she’s married,” Gorga, 43, told Page Six exclusively on Wednesday during the premiere of Jennifer Lopez’s Netflix documentary, “Halftime,” revealing she saw Joe’s flirty Instagram comment. about Veronica earlier this week.
The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star was joined at the Tribeca Film Festival screening by her husband, Joe Gorga, who inquired about the comment.
“He said something like, ‘Who’s the big one? Is she single?’ to Teresa’s new sister-in-law,” Melissa told Joe, 42, during our interview.
“Oh he did,” Joe replied, as Melissa noted, “She’s taken.”
Teresa’s Joe, 50, made headlines on Tuesday when he commented: “Is the big one married?” in a photo of his estranged wife, also 50, posing with Veronica and Luis’ other sister, Jennifer Ruelas.
Teresa was due to wed Luis, 47, in August, though she was forced to change her plans after her ‘Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip’ co-star Ramona Singer accidentally revealed her wedding date and location on Instagram last month.
Melissa confirmed to Us Wednesday that Teresa had to “resend invites” to her guests following the social media mess.
“It happens. What are you going to do?” the “On Display” singer said.
Prior to the leak, Teresa spoke to Page Six about her wedding, revealing that she enjoyed planning the event with Luis after Joe showed little interest in preparing for their October 1999 ceremony.
“The wedding plans are going great. Luis is involved with me, and I love it. We’re doing it together, so it’s not just me,” she told us.
“I remember my first marriage; I did it all alone. But [Luis is] involved, and I love it,” she added.
Teresa and Luis got engaged in October 2021, a year after finalizing her divorce from Joe, with whom she shares four daughters: Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12.
