RHONJ’s Melissa and Joe Gorga React to Teresa Giudice’s Engagement: ‘We’re So Happy for Her’

Melissa and Joe Gorga couldn’t be more thrilled for Teresa Giudice’s engagement to now-fiancé Luis “Louie” Ruelas. While chatting with PEOPLE at the 25th-anniversary bash for the Mohegan Sun hotel and casino in Uncasville, Connecticut, on Saturday evening, Melissa and Joe, both 42, say they are “so happy” for Giudice, 49, and Ruelas, 46.

Adding that they are also “so excited” and have already been in contact with Giudice since Ruelas asked for her hand in marriage, Melissa tells PEOPLE exclusively, “We actually knew Louie was going to propose. He told us he was going to do it.”

Earlier this week, PEOPLE exclusively revealed that Giudice and Ruelas got engaged. Ruelas popped the question on Tuesday at the Amanzoe Resort in Porto Heli, Greece, incorporating sparklers, candles, roses, a violinist, and a fireworks display into his proposal.

“It was absolutely exquisite,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “The choreographed fireworks display illuminated a ‘Marry Me’ sign as Louie got down on one knee. Teresa was completely surprised.”

Margaret Josephs, Melissa and Teresa’s fellow Real Housewives of New Jersey costar, also attended the star-studded Mohegan Sun event as well, where she similarly chatted with PEOPLE about her reaction to Giudice’s engagement.
