How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

As one of Teresa Giudice’s longtime friends, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member has seen the mother of four enter and close many life chapters — and we’re talking huge moments, like Teresa getting married for the first time, welcoming each of her four daughters, enduring a divorce, living as a single parent, and eventually marrying the “love of [her] life.”

Dolores says Teresa and Louie’s family makes her “so happy”

On Wednesday, August 2, Dolores shared a few heartwarming thoughts on Teresa’s current life chapter, specifically praising the love within her blended family. Dolores made the comments in response to an emotional Instagram post shared by Luis “Louie” Ruelas, the businessman Teresa married nearly a year ago.

The post featured a series of photos from Teresa and Louie’s Mykonos vacation, which they enjoyed with Louie’s son Louie Jr. and Teresa’s daughters — Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana — all of whom she shares with her ex-husband, Joe Giudice.

“I loved watching your beautiful family and the love [you] all have for each other,” Dolores wrote in the comments. “It makes me so happy.”

Louie shows love to his and Teresa’s children

Louie’s post included highlights from the family getaway as well as a touching message to his son and stepdaughters.

“In this moment I have so much Love [and] gratitude in my heart for these amazing human beings,” he captioned the photos. “Mom and I want to thank YOU guys for an amazing week in Mykonos [and] for being so incredible!! We need [and] want to acknowledge how beautiful you all are inside and out. The love we shared together this week was so special, our growing [and] bonding moments [were] PRICELESS [and] unforgettable!”

Teresa and Louie’s Blended Family

The Jersey couple has a total of six children, including Louie’s eldest son, Nicholas, who has autism. Just months after tying the knot, the husband and wife spoke to People magazine about their family dynamic and how their children were “eager” to come together.

“The girls embrace Louie, and it’s beautiful,” Teresa said. “Little Louie hangs out with the girls all the time, they go out together. I treat him like he’s my own, and of course Nicholas too. Every time Nicholas leaves, he always says, ‘When am I coming back?’ He always wants to know… The girls have embraced Nicholas. They let Nicholas hang out with them, with their friends when they’re all hanging out at the house.”
