She marries Louie Ruelas, the star of the reality TV show Teresa Giudice
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice married businessman Louie Ruelas after a long-haul relationship. An estimated 220 guests attended the couple's reception at Park Chateau Estate & Gardens in East Brunswick, N.J., during a sunset ceremony on Saturday. Among Giudice's bridesmaids were her four daughters -- Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12 -- according to the New York Post.
Joe Giudice, Giudice's former husband and father of her children, shared a photo of them in matching peach gowns on Instagram. Several celebrities attended the event, including Jill Zarin, Dorinda Medley, Alexia Echevarria, Chanel Ayan, Loni Love, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, Ashley Darbey, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, Dolores Catania, and Jackie Goldschneider.
An upcoming episode of Bravo will show footage from the lavish affair, E! News reports. The gown, featuring a mermaid silhouette, was a custom-fitted piece by Mark Zunino. Adding a touch of elegance to the ensemble, she donned a tiara and veil embroidered with interlocking hearts and the words "Sempre Insieme," meaning "Always Together." There were white roses in the bouquet of the bride.
A white tuxedo jacket, black bowtie, and black pants were worn by the groom on the big day. Since last October, Giudice, 50, has been seeing Ruelas, 47, for almost two years. Giudice and Joe, her first husband, were married from 1999 to 2020. Aside from their jail sentences, both of them spent time in prison for various financial crimes and tax fraud. Joe was deported to Italy but now lives in the Bahamas.
