Amid rumors of Teresa Giudice and Dina Cantin’s fallout, The Real Housewives of New Jersey fans are questioning Luis Ruelas’ possible involvement. Teresa and Dina have years of history as best friends. The two even managed to maintain their close ties despite Teresa’s messy fallout with Dina’s sister Caroline Manzo. With Dina estranged from her own siblings, maintaining her loyalty to Teresa was no problem. Dina has been present for many of Teresa’s big life moments, including her engagement to Luis.
During the season 12 reunion, Teresa had to own up to snubbing her longtime friend Delores Catania with an invite to her engagement party. When asked why, Teresa claimed it was because she and Luis never got to double date with Delores and her new beau Paul. But shortly after the reunion, the truth came out when Teresa admitted to snubbing Delores due to her feud with Dina. With Dina being Teresa’s BFF, she chose to have her at the party and not Delores. Dina is reportedly set to serve as a bridesmaid. But all of those reports have been put to rest amid claims that Teresa and Dina are no longer speaking.
Reddit user u/himalayanrose posted a screenshot of the rumors first reported by the Best of Bravo page on Instagram. The outlet claims that Teresa and Dina fell out because of their spouses, Luis and Dave Cantin. While the allegations are still vague and haven’t been confirmed by any party, fans are already expressing their suspicions about Teresa’s soon-to-be husband. Many think Luis is secretly working to isolate Teresa from her friends to seemingly control her like a puppet. “Louie seriously giving dirty John vibes before you know it, he’ll isolate her from everyone,” one Redditor said. Another said Luis has given them the “creeps” since he came into Teresa’s life two years ago.
There were a number of fans who wondered if the fallout came after Dina “recognized a whole bunch of red flags” about Luis “and tried to warn Teresa.” One Redditor thinks “if Louie was the reason for the falling out that puts another big red flag in his column.” Dina is no stranger to abusive relationships. She remains estranged from her old life in New Jersey over a traumatic experience involving her ex-husband who was found guilty of hiring someone to attack Dina and Dave in a home invasion. Caroline is accused of having written a letter to defend her brother-in-law instead of defending her sister. The severity of the situation led to Dina relocating to California. Teresa and Dina have remained thick as thieves over the years.
Teresa has received a number of warnings about Luis since they went public. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star continues to shut down anyone trying to burst her “love bubble” and bring up Luis’ past. Teresa thinks all of Luis’ exes are just jealous that he’s currently engaged to “the Teresa Giudice.” But if Luis is causing a strain with Teresa’s longtime best friend, it’s worth stepping out of the love bubble to possibly see what everyone else is seeing.
