REAL Housewives Of New Jersey star Margaret Josephs accused Teresa Giudice’s boyfriend Luis “Louie” Ruelas of being a “sex addict” while filming season 12.
The reality star found love again with Luis after parting ways with her ex-husband and baby daddy, Joe Giudice.
A show insider exclusively told The Sun: “Everyone has been gossiping about Teresa, however Margaret Josephs has been the most vocal on camera, claiming that Luis Ruelas is a ‘sex addict’ with ‘a history of abuse’ in which she references tales that Louie’s past girlfriends have shared online.”
The source continued: “Behind Teresa’s back the women have gone as far as to label Luis ‘an opportunist’ with ‘an agenda’ and proceed to mock Teresa’s intelligence for falling in love with a man who has such a questionable history.”
Out of all of Teresa’s costars, the insider revealed only Jennifer Aydin has been “supportive” of her relationship.
The Sun has reached out to Margaret and the show’s reps, as well as Luis.
Back in April, Luis’ ex-fiancée Vanessa Reiser claimed the businessman “demanded sex four times a day” from her.
She would file a legal action against Luis following the end of their relationship.
According to Page Six, Vanessa claimed in the paperwork: “He demanded that I be available for sex whenever he wanted.
“If I objected to his demands, Luis Ruelas would punish me. He would be nasty, withdraw from me, and blame me for what happened.”

Sources at the time told the outlet that Luis is “sex obsessed.”
The lawsuit was settled outside of the court and the terms they agreed upon are undisclosed, and a rep for Luis did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
MORE SHOCKING CLAIMS
The Sun also previously reported Luis was accused of “controlling and abusive behavior” by his ex in another lawsuit that was filed, but later dropped.
In the lawsuit filed on April 15, she claimed: “In October 2019, [Luis] abandoned [his ex] in Provincetown, Massachusetts and then padlocked [his ex] out of the [New Jersey] home that they shared.
“After some other instances of controlling, abusive behavior, [Luis] gave [his ex] various gifts to induce [her] to continue her relationship with [Luis]…”
She claimed during their relationship, he formed a social worker company as a “gift” to her with the “representation” that she would have sole control over the business.
Luis, 46, was then accused of “arrogating unto himself” sole control over the company.
The court papers continued: “In addition, [Luis] has threatened [the ex] that he will contact her friends to damage her reputation.”
TERESA & LUIS’ ROMANCE
Despite the controversy surrounding Luis, there has been speculation that they are ready to take the next step.
Earlier this year, Luis revealed he had plans to “put a ring” on Teresa, as another source previously told The Sun that he is known for being “impulsive.”
The insider said at the time: “I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a ring. He would love to be in the limelight.”
The RHONJ star – who previously dropped $3million on a new home – confirmed she was in dating Luis in November 2020.
Teresa, 49, split from ex Joe in December 2019, after 20 years of marriage, finalizing their divorce almost a year later.
They share daughters Gia, 20, Milania, 15, Gabriella, 17, and Audriana, 12.
Joe, 49, served 41 months in prison for fraud, while Teresa served 15 months before his sentence began.
A NEW FACE
The upcoming season of the popular Bravo series will include new castmember Traci Lynn Johnson, who is married to former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber.
Melissa Gorga recently shared a photo of Traci with her new coworkers, including Teresa, Jennifer, Margaret, Dolores Catania, Jackie Goldschneider.
She captioned it: “Pink Party at Missy G’s !! #rhonj.”
Season 12 is expected to debut in the fall.
