Which Husband Does Rachel Fuda Think Loves the Limelight the Most?

During Season 13 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, viewers were introduced to two new housewives: Rachel Fuda and Danielle Cabral. While the new cast members wasted no time introducing viewers to their lives, their husbands also stole a bit of the show.

How to Watch

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

Remember the hot lumberjack from Dolores Catania's charity calendar photoshoot in Episode 1? Meet Rachel's husband, John Fuda.

John and Rachel Fuda's Relationship

In Season 13 Episode 2, Rachel revealed her and John's meet-cute moment.

"I met John when I was 22. I was his bartender. He'd just sold a pizzeria that he owned," she shared.

According to a Q&A posted to Rachel's Instagram Stories, the duo first connected at the 46 Lounge, a nightclub in Totowa, New Jersey. At the time, Rachel was bartending around town and her now-husband would show up wherever she was working to ask her out. While she kept denying him—she'd just gotten out of a different relationship)—he eventually convinced her to give him a chance.

The pair went on their first date in Hoboken, which eventually led to a 2017 wedding at the Estate at Florentine Gardens in River Vale, New Jersey.

"The best feeling in the world is knowing your smile is for me," wrote John alongside a March 2023 Instagram photo of him and his wife. "Lucky to have each other," Rachel commented, adding a heart emoji.

Fuda Family Life

When Rachel married John, she officially became stepmom to Jaiden, his son from a previous relationship. According to a Season 13 press release, Rachel credits her stepson as "someone who opened her heart in a way she could never have imagined."

The couple went on to welcome two daughters: Gianella “GiGi” and Giuliana— who was born just seven and a half weeks before RHONJ Season 13 production began. 

In a February 2023 interview with Us Weekly, Rachel shared that she has "an amazing support system" in her family, which helped ease the transition to filming so soon after giving birth.

“I’m so grateful for that,” she said. “Without my parents, my husband, my brother and sister-in-law, I would not be able to have done any of this.”

What does John Fuda do for a living?

What is Valet King?

An entrepreneur and investor, the New Jersey native founded his company, Valet King, in 2013. The parking management business deals in valet parking, parking garage operation, dealership valet, detailing, car wash operation and parking management. 

John also works for his family company, Fuda Tile, which has been around since 1948, according to Rachel's Instagram Story Q&A.

As for his other professional ventures, the RHONJ husbands' group calendar shoot wasn't John's first time in front of the camera. The businessman has modeled before and, according to his wife, once appeared on an episode of Law & Order.

"We're among a superstar," Rachel noted of his acting work in Season 13 Episode 1.

While his next modeling project isn't certain, one thing is for sure: The creative directors better be OK with a hairless chest.
