Joe Giudice gushed about ex-wife Teresa Giudice’s gorgeous bridal look after her wedding to Luis “Louie” Ruelas over the weekend.
“Teresa looked like a princess,” Joe, 50, told Us Weekly on Monday.
The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star’s wedding look turned heads as she wore an off-the-shoulder Mark Zunino gown, crystal tiara and veil embroidered with the Italian phrase ‘Sempre Insieme’, which translates to “Always Together”.
Her larger-than-life hairstyle consisted of over 1,500 bobby pins, $7,500 worth of real hair extensions, and a $2,500 bill to style the bun.
“I am very happy for her. She deserves all the happiness in the world,” Joe continued. “I think Lou is a good guy. Anything negative said there are just rumors that I don’t engage in. Until I personally find out otherwise, it’s OK in my book.
Teresa, also 50, previously told Page Six that Ruelas was much more involved in their wedding planning than Joe was in their October 1999 wedding.
However, Joe said in his last interview that both ceremonies were “equally special and beautiful in their own way”.
Joe also told the outlet that he wasn’t “surprised” Teresa’s brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Melissa Gorga – who he’s been feuding with for years – called it quits at the latest. minute.
“They are unpredictable,” he said. “I wish [Luis] good luck with her new in-laws.
Teresa and Joe separated in December 2019 and finalized their divorce in September 2020 after 20 years of marriage. The exes share four daughters – Gia, 21, Gabriella, 18, Milania, 16 and Audriana, 13 – whom Teresa has made bridesmaids.
Joe currently lives in the Bahamas after serving three years in prison for fraud and being deported in 2018.
Teresa and Ruelas got engaged in October 2021 after dating for about a year.
The lovebirds tied the knot at the Chateau Estate in East Brunswick, NJ on Saturday.
