Get an idea of what's to come as RHONJ Season 13 wraps up.

By Allison Crist

Teresa Giudice and her husband, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, have been clashing with Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga for the duration of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13, and it looks as though the drama will come to a head on the upcoming finale. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

Find out where exactly the two couples stand ahead of what's sure to be a memorable conclusion to the season (aside from the highly-anticipated reunion, that is).

Teresa and Joe's Relationship

The siblings have certainly experienced their fair share of drama over the years, but as Teresa revealed on May 9's Episode 14, "He's never not taken my call. I wish it wasn't happening right now."

She then attempted to explain how sorry she was that things had gotten so bad — especially since her wedding was quickly approaching — but Louie stopped her. "Don't ever apologize," he said, "because his actions are not your fault.

Teresa and Louie's Relationship with Melissa 

Teresa may agree with that sentiment, but that's largely due to her belief that Joe's actions are Melissa's fault. She said as much on Episode 14 while discussing her upcoming rehearsal dinner — which Melissa, at the last minute, revealed she and Joe would not be attending — telling Louie, "It's like, let him have his family. Her being in his ear all these years, that's the result."

Louie and Joe's Relationship

Tensions have reached an all-time high between Louie and Joe. The last straw for Louie, he explained on Episode 14, came during the group's weekend at the Jersey Shore. More specifically, "It's when he said you were miserable," Louie told Teresa. "He's projecting his own bullsh-t on you!"

"Your brother is devilishly calculated by everything he does," the groom-to-be continued. "And he's actually thinking about how to hurt you. It's disgusting."

Teresa tried to explain that she simply wants "peace," but Louie interjected to say, "Well, our life's been really peaceful because we haven't had your brother in our life the last two, three weeks. I'm not gonna deal with it. I'm ready to react."

What's to Come on the Season 13 Finale

Dolores Catania and her boyfriend, Paul "Paulie" Connell, are set to host a party on the RHONJ Season 13 finale. Looking ahead to the celebration, Teresa asked Louie if he "plan[ned] on talking" to Joe there.

His response? "I would like to talk to your brother as much as I would like to talk to a rat in the street."

Louie also said he's "not gonna take sh-t anymore," specifically citing Joe's apparent "gaslight[ing]" and "manipulat[ion]" of Teresa.

Teresa, for her part, was surprised to hear Louie speak like that. "I've never heard Louie talk like this before," she said in a confessional interview, "but I don't blame him at all."

Stay tuned to see everything that goes down during the Season 13 conclusion.
