Bad news for Juicy Joe: Teresa Giudice’s soon-to-be sister-in-law is off the market.
Melissa Gorga wants her former brother-in-law to know that he can’t date his ex-wife’s fiancée, Luis “Louie” Ruelas’ sister Dr. Veronica Ruelas.
“I mean, she’s married,” Gorga, 43, told Vidak For Congress exclusively on Wednesday during the premiere of Jennifer Lopez’s Netflix documentary, “Halftime,” revealing that she saw Joe’s flirty Instagram commentary 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 tall one? Is she single?’ to Teresa’s new sister-in-law,” Melissa explained to her Joe, 42, during our interview.
“Oh, he did,” Joe replied, as Melissa pointed out, “She’s taken.”
Teresa’s Joe, 50, made headlines Tuesday when he remarked, “Is the tall one married?” in a photo of his former wife, also 50, posing with Veronica and Luis’ other sister, Jennifer Ruelas.
Teresa was set to marry 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 on Wednesday that Teresa had to “re-send invites” to her guests following the social media snafu.
“It’s happening. What are you going to do?” the “On Display” singer said.
Prior to the leak, Teresa spoke to Vidak For Congress about her wedding and revealed that she enjoyed planning the event with Luis after Joe showed little interest in the lead up to their October 1999 ceremony.
“The wedding plans are going great. Luis is involved with me, and I love that. We do it together, so I’m not alone,” she told us.
“I remember my first wedding; I did it myself. But [Luis is] involved, and I love that,” she added.
Teresa and Luis became engaged in October 2021, a year after she finalized her divorce from Joe, with whom she shares four daughters: Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12.
