Teresa Giudice's ex-husband, Joe Giudice, doesn't hold a grudge against her current beau. In fact, Joe has said that Teresa's new hubby, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, is "a nice guy." And based on a recent Instagram interaction, it seems that the two Real Housewives of New Jersey men are still cordial.

On October 19, Joe shared a photo of himself posing with two young women, including his daughter Gia Giudice in the Bahamas. Among the hundreds of followers to give the pic a "like" was Louie, who has a copacetic relationship with his stepdaughters as well as with their dad.

On Tre's podcast, Namaste B$tches, Gia has said: “Louie is such a great stepdad. He really is. He’s an amazing stepdad. Come on, you guys know [my dad]. He’s Juicy Joe. You think he’s going to let anybody around his girls who he doesn’t like? No.”

Joe has elaborated on his "like" for Louie in the past. “I mean, he’s been nice to me," Joe said during a recent podcast interview. "He’s called me, he’s been a man… Even when he went as far as coming out here before they got married,” Joe explained, referencing the time Louie arranged an in-person meeting with him in the Bahamas.

Joe continued: “He came out to let me know that he wanted to get married and everything, and he wanted, you know, I guess, my blessings. And I thought that was very nice.”
