Does Teresa Giudice Think Joe Giudice Was Ever Unfaithful? She Says...

The Real Housewives of New Jersey OG got real about her former relationship on WWHL.

By Allison Crist

When Teresa Giudice and Luis "Louie" Ruelas appeared on Watch What Happens Live on February 14, host Andy Cohen couldn't help but point out just how different Teresa's new husband is from her ex, Joe Giudice

How to Watch

After he made the observation, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member started to reflect on the relationship — both the good and the bad. Leaning into the latter, Andy asked, "Do you in retrospect think that he cheated on you or was unfaithful to you?"

"I mean, I never caught him," Teresa responded. "And if I would've, I would've never stayed with him."

That's not to say she didn't have her suspicions, though. At one point in time, she even confronted two women that she thought Joe might be cheating with, but "they both denied it."

And suspicions aside, "I'm all about the proof," Teresa said. "I can't just leave my kids' father because someone's telling me he's cheating on me. It's like, show me. Prove it. Because then I could say that to my kids — like, look, this is who he cheated on me with."

Teresa went on to express her gratitude for the relationship — explaining that she "felt safe" when she first got together with Joe — and acknowledged that it got her where she is today, which is with her "soulmate." 

"I thought I was in love [with Joe]," Teresa began, "but when I met Louie, it was like a whole different thing." 

As RHONJ fans are surely aware, Teresa and Louie tied the knot in August after dating for one year. She was previously with Joe for two decades, though they ultimately finalized their divorce in September 2020. Together, the former couple has four daughters — GiaGabriellaMilania, and Audriana — all of whom frequently travel to see their dad, who currently lives and works in the Bahamas

Both Joe's kids and Teresa also stay in touch with his side of the family. As Teresa explained on WWHL, "My girls see Joe's family all the time. They come over [and] we take them on vacation with us." 

Hear Teresa discuss her side of the family — including the ongoing drama with her brother, Joe Gorga — in the below WWHL clip.
