Teresa Giudice may be happily dating new boyfriend Luis Ruelas at the moment but during filming on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” season 11 in 2020, she was loving life as “single Teresa.”
During an interview with Page Six on February 15, Teresa’s sister-in-law and co-star, Melissa Gorga, said that when it came to production on the new episodes, the mother of four was all about reclaiming her womanhood after splitting from ex-husband Joe Giudice months prior after a 20-year marriage.

“When you see single Teresa, like, wanting to suck on anything you bring near her — a banana — the woman is just … everything is sexy to her,” Gorga explained.
Giudice split from ex Joe in December 2019, just months before she and her cast mates began filming the new episodes of season 11 of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“She’s going through it where I’m like, ‘Okay, this one needs a man!’” Gorga continued of Giudice’s post-split demeanor.

“She’s in that mode of flirtatious where she wants to flirt with everybody who walks past her,” Gorga continued. “Everything is a sex joke. So yeah, you’re definitely going to see a lot of single Teresa!”
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” fans will meet “single Teresa” in a matter of days but hopefully, they won’t get too attached. After all, judging by her recent social media posts honoring Ruelas, she will not be reprising that role anytime soon.
As for how Gorga feels about Ruelas, she told Page Six that he seems to be a great guy.

“I really want her and the girls to be happy. . So ultimately, if she’s happy, we’re happy,” Gorga explained.
And Giudice is happy. In fact, she recently said on Instagram that she believes Ruelas is a gift from her late parents.
