Joe Giudice was deported to Italy after serving a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud in 2016
When she was released in 2016, Joe started his 41-month sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud and was later deported to Italy in the months following his release.
Recently, Teresa and Joe’s oldest daughter, Gia, has made headlines of her own alongside her boyfriend Christian Carmichael.
Gia shared her first image of the two together in July, 2020.
“Summer nights w u,” she captioned, along with a blushing emoji on the photo, which was taken during a visit to Ortley Beach, New Jersey.
While it was her first post with Carmichael, he already shared a photo of them as they celebrated the Fourth of July at her aunt Melissa Gorge’s vacation property.
“Look at this gem,” Carmichael wrote in the caption of the image.
Their relationship was first confirmed in March 2020, by Frank Catania Jr., the son of Teresa’s co-star and friend Dolores Catania.

Is Teresa Giudice dating?
It was revealed last year that Teresa began dating Louis “Louie” Ruelas, 46.
Teresa met Louie a couple of months ago at the Jersey shore, according to TMZ.
They’re apparently “taking things slow” and not living together but are very happy in their relationship.
So happy in fact- Teresa’s already introduced Louie to her four daughters.
However Louie may have a darker past.
His ex-fiance accused him of “controlling and abusive behavior” in a lawsuit filed in April 2020, but dropped the following month.
In the April lawsuit, Louie’s ex claimed: “In October 2019, [Louie] abandoned [his ex] in Provincetown, Massachusetts and then padlocked [his ex] out of the [New Jersey] home that they shared.

“After some other instances of controlling, abusive behavior, [Louie] gave [his ex] various gifts to induce [her] to continue her relationship with [Louie].”
She claimed during their relationship, he formed a social worker company as a “gift” to her with the “representation” that she would have sole control over the business.
But she said the businessman “arrogated unto himself” sole control over the company.
The court papers continued: “In addition, [Louie] has threatened [the ex] that he will contact her friends to damage her reputation.”
She also accused him of keeping her belongings from their former home.
The woman requested a temporary restraining order stopping him from having control over the business, website and email. She also asked for compensation and costs for attorney fees.
On May 20, the woman dismissed the lawsuit.
Teresa said she got the stamp of approval for Louie from her ex-husband Joe and her four daughters
What did Teresa Giudice say her daughters and ex-husband think of her boyfriend?
Teresa recently revealed that her four daughters and ex-husband Joe Giudice have given Louie their stamp of approval.
“They like him, they think he’s great also, which I’m glad,” Teresa told E!.
“Joe’s happy for me, I’m happy for Joe. Right now he’s living in the Bahamas so everything’s good. We’re all a happy family, which I’m glad.”
“Everything’s really good,” she gushed.
“I’m so happy. He’s amazing, he’s beautiful inside and out. He’s really special.”
She continued: “I was walking by at the Jersey Shore and he was packing up his car to go back home.
Teresa and Louie’s relationship was revealed last year
“I know my [late] mom and dad sent my boyfriend to me. They did, you know, because my dad left me and he’s like ‘you can’t stay alone’ so I know he sent him to me.”
