TERESA Giudice hit back at a fan who criticized her on Instagram.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star responded to a person who accused her of “hating” and “competing” with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.
Posting a photo of herself cuddling up to boyfriend Luis Ruelas on a glam date night, Teresa, 49, wrote: “I Love being in your arms.”
In the comments under the romantic photo, an Instagram user wrote: “Let’s hope that being in love makes her a nice person who stops hating and trying to compete with her sister in law.”
Teresa didn’t hesitate to clap back, as she responded: “Obviously you don’t know me LOL.”
Teresa and Melissa, 42, have had a difficult path as sisters-in-law.
In June it was reported that Teresa didn’t want Melissa, who is her brother Joe Gorga’s wife, starring on Housewives All-Stars with her.
Her castmate Jennifer Aydin recently divulged on a podcast the mom-of-four would have preferred to film the new show alongside a different franchise costar.
Jennifer told the Slut Pig podcast: “The way that I saw that they casted, I was under the assumption that they picked the ones that had the most longevity on the show, so actually, it made sense to me that it was Melissa and Teresa.”
Jennifer divulged of Teresa’s hope for casting: “I mean, Teresa did say, ‘I wish I was going with you or Dolores [Catania].
“What am I gonna do with her [Melissa]?’
“But I was like, ‘No, you guys will have fun!’ And she’s like, ‘It is what it is.’
Jennifer went on: “But listen, Teresa didn’t say that because she has a problem with Melissa…
“She just has such a good time with me and Dolores. So, she was just like, ‘I wish I was going with my two really good girlfriends.’
“I was like, ‘Sorry, Teresa, you can do all the work like usual.’”
The TV star is loved up with Luis, who she’s been dating for about a year.
But Teresa’s costar Margaret Josephs reportedly accused Luis of being a “sex addict” during filming of season 12.
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.
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.
IS LUIS A SEX ADDICT?
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.
Teresa, split from ex Joe Giudice 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.
