Luis Ruelas found a much-needed ally Paulie Connell. The season 13 reunion made it clear that Luis needed friends by his side. And who better to match than his wife’s best friend’s boyfriend?
Teresa Giudice and Dolores Catania have been friends for decades. And just last season, Dolores brought Paulie into the game Real housewives from New Jersey Group. Unlike Luis, the Irish native avoided drama with Margaret Josephs and Melissa Gorga. This allowed him to integrate into the group.
But Paulie is very open about his friendship with Luis. It sure seems like he’s risking the scorn of some of his castmates by doing so. The social media posts suggest some level of engagement, which is worth commenting on.
Luis called Paulie a ‘classmate’
The friendly foursome spent some time together on the Jersey shore. Dolores, Paulie, Teresa and Luis recently had a great time at their favorite vacation spot.
Louis posted a photo of himself with Paulie in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, on Aug. 19. Dressed in white, the duo posed in front of a Bentley of the same color.
“To another 100 years of friendship [Paulie Connell]’ Louis wrote. “You are a class, my friend! I love enjoying life with you and worshiping our queens [Teresa Giudice and Dolores Catania].”
The entrepreneur added a hashtag in which he referred to Paulie as “another mother’s brother.” Other notable hashtags include “double date,” “friendship,” and “friend.”[s] who take care of you.”
Luis received a seal of approval from Dolores after the RHONJ beauty shared it on her Instagram story. OG star Teresa supported her husband by commenting with three fire emojis.
Paulie himself posted a post in support of his friend who recently started a pet insurance business.
“[True]’ wrote Paulie. “I enjoyed spending my first night on the Jersey Shore with you. Until yesterday I was a virgin from the Jersey Shore. Good times as always, brother[.] [K]I smile deeply, my man[.]”
Just a day earlier, Teresa had posted a video of herself and Dolores on the shore. They both wore mini dresses. The Skinny Italian author captioned the post, “A true friend is a treasure that’s hard to find.”
Three red heart emojis from Dolores were spotted in the comments.
Teresa’s incredibly high standard of friendship and loyalty is remarkable. Dolores and Paulie seem to have kept her and Luis’ trust up despite all the reunion drama. And more importantly for Luis, he has a solid castmate at his side.
Tell us – how do you react to the social media posts? ARE LOUIS AND PAULIE REALLY FRIENDS? SHOULD PAULIE AND DOLORES BE SO PUBLIC IN THEIR FRIENDSHIP WITH TERESA AND LOUIS?
Don’t expect a happy family on RHONJ.
Teresa and Dolores want to win.
Blood is not always thicker than water.
