Season 12 of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey is already shaping up to be filled with drama.
A source spilled to the news outlet, "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."
Giudice and Ruelas confirmed that they were dating in the fall of 2020 following her divorce from longtime husband Joe Giudice whom she shares daughters Gia, 20, Milania, 15, Gabriella, 17, and Audriana, 12.
"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," the insider explained about the drama surrounding the Skinny Italian author's relationship.
Giudice does have one fellow cast member in her corner though. The source revealed that Jennifer Aydin has been very "supportive" of her romance with the 46-year-old businessman.
Joesph's accusations have alleged evidence to back them up. According to documents obtained by Page Six, Ruelas' former fiancée Vanessa Reiser claimed in legal filings that “He demanded that I be available for sex whenever he wanted."
The lawsuit states that, “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]..."
Reisner also alleged in the court documents that "He [Luis] has threatened [the ex] that he will contact her friends to damage her reputation.”
