Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita shocked fans over the weekend when they reunited for a friendly lunch in Las Vegas, where Jacqueline and her family reside, following a years-long feud. But that wasn’t all that happened in Sin City.
In addition to Teresa and Jacqueline making amends, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey co-stars’ husbands, Luis Ruelas and Chris Laurita, respectively, hit it off, with Jacqueline telling her fans and followers on Instagram that they were “future golf bros.”
“I love when the husbands click!” Jacqueline gushed on February 12, along with a photo of Luis and Chris standing beside one another at Cipriani Las Vegas, where they enjoyed a meal and drinks.
Jacqueline’s post caught the attention of many, including Teresa and Luis, both of whom reposted the message on their own Stories. Luis also shared a couple of photos of himself and Chris on his main page.
“This weekend I got a chance to meet this amazing guy,” Luis wrote in the caption of his Instagram post, which included the “let go let love” and “we both have a Nicholas” hashtags.
Following the sharing of the post, Jacqueline reacted with a comment, applauding Luis for his desire for growth and gushing over his relationship with Teresa.
“It was such a pleasure meeting you,” Jacqueline wrote. “You are a kind, open, positive, caring person. I love how open you are to always learning, growing and evolving. I respect that! You are living your best life. It’s obvious how much you and Teresa love and adore each other! I’m so happy we connected and bonded over our beautiful Nicholas’s. Chris and I are looking forward to creating many new happy memories with you and Teresa in the future! 4 Taurus’s unite!”
Also on Instagram, Teresa took to her Story, where she not only reshared Jacqueline’s post about their husbands hitting it off, but also posted a couple of messages from fans, one of whom suggested she and Jacqueline were “healing” and another who said their reunion was “the moment.”
As RHONJ fans may have seen, Teresa seemingly prompted her reconciliation with Jacqueline earlier this month on her podcast, Namaste B$tches, when she defended her against claims of being “thirsty” after she spoke out against Melissa Gorga.
“She’s not like that,” Teresa insisted.
After Jacqueline came forward, accusing Melissa of shading Caroline Manzo as “too old” and “boring” for RHONJ, and suggesting Melissa manipulated her by telling her Teresa was trash-talking her behind her back, she took further aim at Melissa in an interview with All About the Real Housewives, blaming her for her and Teresa’s falling out.
“I felt used by her. She planted seeds that I was being paranoid, when she was the one paranoid and also making me feel paranoid with the things she would tell me,” Jacqueline explained. “Melissa didn’t do that to me to be loyal to Teresa like some viewers thought, it was for how the fans would view her and to also keep a wedge between us.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
