Luis Ruelas was applauded for his calm, cool, and collected response to Joe Gorga’s meltdown on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The current season is giving Luis a chance to reintroduce himself to viewers after a rocky introduction last season. Margaret Josephs has eased up on bringing up rumors about Luis, allowing for him and Teresa to focus on the huge wedding they were planning at the time filming was underway. But after ending RHONJ season 12 in a huge rift with Joe and Melissa Gorga, Teresa is enemy number one to her brother and sister-in-law, and Luis is guilty by association.
According to a sneak peek of the next episode, there’s a heated showdown that takes place after Joe confronts The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Luis Ruelas about Melissa’s family not receiving invites to his and Teresa’s wedding, and fans are flocking to Luis’ side. “Everybody’s in but anybody on my side of life, it’s ****ed up,” Joe quips in the clip posted by RHONJ Obsessed.
After Luis credits “past bull****” as the reason for the invite snub, Joe calls it “a slap in the face” not to have his in-laws invited. Once Luis calls out Joe and Melissa bad-mouthing Teresa and their nieces on their podcast, Joe becomes violent with explicit language, name-calling, and banging on the table. But Luis keeps his cool and tells Joe to “stop with the theatrics.” RHONJ fans who watched the intense scene praised Luis for keeping his composure, despite Joe’s clear attempt to instigate a fight. “Thank you Louie for calling out him acting like a child,” @ericalynn_nj quipped. That same fan also called out the Gorgas for seemingly “making the wedding all about themselves instead of just being excited for Teresa.”
Gorgas Called Out Over RHONJ Star Teresa Giudice’s Wedding
Many others agreed. “IT’S THEIR WEDDING??? They don’t owe an invite to anyone,” @BBmanifest wrote. “Oh please! There is no reason to invite his in-laws as they are not his sisters’ Blood,” added @ciaobaybay. Others questioned why Joe became so defensive when Luis referenced his podcast, where he and Melissa took credit for keeping food on the table for Teresa’s daughters while she and Joe Giudice served time in prison. Joe’s latest antics have only turned more RHONJ viewers against him, based on these Twitter replies.
Fans are aware of Joe and Melissa opting out of attending Teresa’s wedding. RHONJ season 13 is revealing the buildup to the blowout. So far, all viewers are witnessing is Joe and Melissa still upset over Teresa’s behavior at the RHONJ season 12 reunion and now their attitude over Teresa’s wedding invites. From the looks of it, Joe and Melissa have an issue with Teresa. But this family feud is nothing new. Viewers have watched Teresa battle it out with her brother and sister-in-law since the Gorgas joined the show in RHONJ season 3.
The real-life family drama has carried on over the course of RHONJ for the last decade. Now things have come to a head over Teresa’s wedding. RHONJ fans are getting an inside look into Teresa’s fallout with Joe and Melissa. So far, Teresa is getting a lot of support thanks in huge part to Joe’s temper tantrum with his second brother-in-law. Joe has fought it out with Teresa’s ex in the past. Now it appears to be Luis’ turn to feel his wrath.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
