Teresa Giudice’s upcoming wedding to her fiancĂ© Luis Ruelas has been taking over The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and it’s recently been revealed that her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga will not be attending. Teresa’s relationship with Luis has been fraught with drama since they got together in 2020. Initially, many were happy that Teresa had found love after facing several of her hardest years. In 2015, Teresa was served 11 months in jail after being found guilty for fraud. Following her prison stint, she divorced her husband Joe Giudice after twenty years of marriage.


The RHONJ went through another bout of hardship when she lost her parents within three years of each other. When Teresa met Luis, she thought her parents had answered her prayers to find someone to love. However, her happiness was soon marred by reports of Luis’ shady past, especially with his exes. Luis was accused of being abusive and his ex-fiancĂ© had filed a lawsuit against him, claiming that he had abandoned her.

Despite the negative rumors, Teresa was determined to make it work with Luis and the two got engaged last year. RHONJ viewers saw Joe and Melissa try to welcome Luis into their family, despite having reservations about him. However, according to Page Six, a source revealed that Joe and Melissa will not be attending Teresa and Luis’ wedding. While filming the RHONJ season 13 finale, a “very tense” moment happened, which may have caused the family members to feud. Things were already fractured between Teresa and Joe after she didn’t ask Melissa to be one of her bridesmaids. The RHONJ star further snubbed her sister in law when it was revealed that she invited Luis’ sisters to be in her wedding.

It was recently reported that Joe skipped out on Teresa’s housewarming party after she and Luis moved in together. The snub sparked rumors that the siblings were on the outs again amid rumors that Joe and Luis got into a heated argument during a boys night out. Teresa and her feud with Joe and Melissa go way back to RHONJ season 3 when a baptism became an all-out brawl. Over the years, the family members attempted to repair their relationship but Joe repeatedly voiced his frustrations over not being respected by his sister.

Many fans are worried that Luis is alienating Teresa from her friends and family. Teresa’s longtime friend and former RHONJ star Dina Manzo was supposed to be her maid of honor, but it was reported that she bowed out and will not be attending Teresa’s wedding. Although sources say it’s because she does not want to be filmed for RHONJ, rumors swirled that she and Teresa fought about Luis. Teresa’s upcoming wedding has been fraught with setbacks but it seems as if The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is going to make it happen no matter what.
