Teresa’s brother Joe joked about welcoming Tony to the family in a toast. “We only hang with family here at the Gorgas'. The pool boy, here we come,” he said. Tony shot back, “What I tell you about that pool boy s**t.”
Melissa also shared a video on her Instagram Story and jokingly referred to Teresa and Tony as the “new couple.”
Teresa and Tony’s Christmas Eve celebration is the second time the exes have hung out in a week. On December 21, they were spotted cuddling up on their way to get breakfast. Teresa’s lawyer James Leonard told Us Weekly at the time that “people should spend time with their families and enjoy the Christmas holiday, not worry about Teresa Giudice eating breakfast with a longtime friend.”
Dolores Catania gave more details about Teresa and Tony’s relationship when the pool boy was introduced on RHONJ. “Teresa was like 17 years old. You know, maybe they made out a little, maybe they went to the beach. That didn't last because Joe always was crazy about her. He was not going to let her marry someone else,” she told cameras.
Teresa and Tony’s recent time together comes just a week after Us confirmed that the RHONJ star and her husband, Joe, separated after nearly 20 years of marriage.
Joe is currently awaiting results of his final deportation appeal in Italy following a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud. The former RHONJ star spent Christmas Eve with his and Teresa’s four daughters. The children are expected to stay in Italy for the entirety of their school break.
