Louie Ruelas and Teresa Giudice spent a few days in Paris, France after Thanksgiving and shared some photos on social media from their time in the city of love.
On November 25, 2022, Ruelas shared some pictures of his wife standing in front of the Eiffel Tower. The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star wore an ivory Balenciaga sweatshirt, which sparked outrage from many fans over the controversy surrounding the company.
Balenciaga came under fire after an ad featuring children holding stuffed animals dressed in bondage clothing went online. The company removed the ads and issued a public apology, and some celebrities distanced themselves from the designer. However, when Giudice was spotted wearing a Balenciaga top after all of this went down, fans started firing her in the comments of Ruelas’ post – which he has since deleted.

“I was embarrassed. I didn’t know,” Giudice said. “Usually when I go on vacation I check out social media completely. Well, I had no idea. So I brought a sweater that I used to love.” totally forgot I had it from last year and never wore it.”
“After I wore it, Louie posted it, and then he read the comments and said, ‘Babe, something happened to Balenciaga,'” she continued.
Giudice said Ruelas “didn’t feel comfortable” keeping the photo on his feed
Giudice shared that after addressing the controversy, Ruelas removed the post from his Instagram feed because he “didn’t feel comfortable with it showing up.”

“I apologize for wearing this,” Giudice said. “I did not know it. I was in Paris. I got checked out,” Giudice continued, adding, “I didn’t know what was going on in the world because, you know, I was with my love and I was spending time in Paris.”
“We had a crush on each other. Unfortunately, we didn’t see what was going on in the rest of the world. We really weren’t,” said Giudice.
The reality star went on to say that she hasn’t been to Paris since the early ’90s. She and Ruelas did a lot of sightseeing and shopping, and she said they had a blast — even with the Balenciaga controversy.
