Teresa Giudice Of “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Defends Husband Luis Ruelas’ Comments About Wearing Her Late Father’s Pajamas

March 23, 2023 / Posted by:

Last summer, Teresa Giudice of Real Housewives of New Jersey got married to Luis “Louie” Ruelas, sporting a hairstyle that was exactly 11 feet high (one foot for every month she spent in the clink). Right now, RHONJ is airing its thirteenth season, and Tre’s wedding special will air a week after the season finale. Currently, the big drama is the never-ending, Hundred Years’ war between Teresa and her brother Joe Gorga/sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, who didn’t end up attending the wedding. For once, I’m Team Teresa. The Gorgas are equal parts exhausting and phony. But then… a twist. In the preview for next week’s episode, Luis is shown having an intense conversation with Joe and utters the following wackadoo sentence: “I live with your four nieces. I wear your father’s pajamas at night to make them feel safe and loving. Do you know that?” Uh, no. I didn’t. I would definitely remember hearing about that one, cuz Teresa and Joe’s father, Giacinto “Nonno” Gorga, died three years ago. So… yeah. Luis has admitted to wearing a dead man’s pajamas.

Here’s the clip:

And, for maximum context, here’s the best of Nonno:

Bravo fans were thoroughly weirded out by this statement. Whenever I finish a Real Housewives episode, I immediately head to the Bravo subreddit to talk shit. This week, instead of discussing the drama on the current episode, all anyone could talk about was Luis’ weird pajama admission. Comments included, “I’m seriously so disturbed by this. Imagine your new husband crawling into bed with your late father’s pajamas on? CHILLING”, “Pajamagate has me effed up”, and “Freud would have a field day.”

The reaction was so strong that Teresa actually had to defend Luis’ statements to People. She explained that her then-fiancé was trying to come “from an endearing place,” and she loves him “even more so for that.” She also insisted that the pajamas Luis was referring to were “brand new”:

“Those were brand new … My dad had brand new clothes that he never used. And that was just a brand new pair of pajamas that I said, ‘Babe, these are new pajamas that my dad never used.’ … So I think it came out the wrong way.”

She goes on to clarify, “They were brand new pajamas that I just gave him. He had a lot of clothes that my dad did not wear and I gave them away. So for instance, that was the only thing I gave Luis was a pair of pajamas that my dad never used. They were, I think Ralph Lauren that he never used. They weren’t his actual pajamas that my dad wore.”

She adds that Luis just wanted her brother Joe’s “approval”:

“I know he was just coming from a loving place towards my brother. He wanted my brother’s approval,” she says. “He was like, poor guy. I feel bad for him. I know he was trying so hard to just wanting my brother, wanting to love my brother and vice versa. And he was just coming from a good place. And I see that. And that’s what makes me love him even more because he’s been nothing but amazing to me and my daughters.”

Hey, I’d rather have a husband who wears my dead dad’s pajamas than a husband who takes advantage of my dumb brain and sends me to prison. But, at the end of the day, why do those have to be the only two options? Come on, Tre. Ya got a beautiful, updated forehead, and you delivered the most iconic Real Housewives moment of all time. Play the field a little!
