In the explosive trailer for the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 reunion, Louie Ruelas receives criticism for allegedly hiring a private investigator to dig up dirt on the entire cast. Ruelas denies hiring a former police detective to investigate his castmates. However, Ruelas says he beefed up his security after receiving death threats. 

Louie Ruelas is Dominican, Mexican, and Puerto Rican

During the Jersey Ladies & Their Men: Part 2 panel at BravoCon 2022, Louie Ruelas shared that his Dominican, Mexican, and Puerto Rican. The businessman revealed that he grew up alongside three siblings in the Bronx, adding that his family moved to the suburbs of New York in his early teens. 

He said he’s still close to his parents and siblings. On 27th August 2022, he shared photos of his family celebrating his father’s sobriety. “My 76-year-old father is 7 years sober today. Dad, we are so proud of you! You inspire everyone around you. Love you Dad!”

“Happy Birthday Mommy,” Ruelas captioned a late May 2021 post. “We love you so much!! Thank you for all you do for us.”

Ruelas’ wife, Teresa Giudice, said in episode one of season 13 that she viewed Ruelas’ sisters, Jennifer and Veronica, as her sisters. “Now that I have Louie’s family,” Teresa said in a confessional, “I was filling that void that I [wasn’t] before.” On 16th January 2023, Teresa wrote on Instagram:

“I admire these two women so much & I want to share this TRUTH because you both mean so much to me. The fear of being so vulnerable in front of Louie’s sisters didn’t seem comfortable at the time, until We let go of our ego’s and welcomed all the pain and joy from our lives and have grown so much together from it.”
