Yikes! Joe Gorga Says ‘Blood Doesn’t Mean Family,’ Will Skip Teresa’s Wedding

Published

on

There’s shade in the air. Teresa Giudice and Luis “Louie” Ruelas are getting ready to tie the knot, but her brother, Joe Gorga, is seemingly less than excited.

“Blood doesn’t make you family🩸,” Gorga, 42, captioned a since-deleted Instagram Story snap on Friday, August 5, resharing a group pic with wife Melissa Gorga and their friends.

“This is us,” pal Lysa Simpson initially wrote alongside the group snap.

While neither Joe nor Melissa, 43, have further commented on the meaning behind his cryptic message, Us Weekly confirmed that the married couple are not planning to attend Giudice’s wedding to Ruelas.

The Standing Strong author, 50, and Ruelas are set to tie the knot this weekend, which will be filmed for an RHONJ spinoff episode.

“I’m inviting a lot of Housewives. … We’ll see who comes and who can make it and who can’t make it,” Giudice — who shares four daughters with ex-husband Joe Giudice — exclusively teased her nuptial plans to Us in May. “I got a lot done [so far]. … [Luis is] very hands-on [too] and that’s what I love.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star got engaged to her beau in October 2021 after nearly one year of dating. At the time, her younger brother was happy for her.

“I’m so excited. I’m so happy for her,” the real estate developer told Us Weekly at the time, noting he cried when he first found out. “[Luis] came in like what she needed. She needed that Superman to come in and take her life and fix it, and that’s what he’s doing. I always said she needed a beast of a man, and he is one of them.”

Since Teresa’s engagement, things have gotten heated with her brother. During the three-part RHONJ season 12 reunion that aired earlier this year, Joe stormed off after his sister was asked about their relationship. “You gotta stop putting me down. Act like a sister,” he yelled, calling Teresa a moron before walking out.

Andy Cohen asked me a question and I gave my answer,” the bride-to-be previously told Us in April about the tense exchange. “So, when I gave my answer, my brother’s like, ‘There you go putting me down.’ And I’m like, ‘First of all, I would never put my brother down. I love my brother.’”

She added: “He’s my only sibling. I absolutely adore him. Like, he’s my baby brother [and] no matter what, I’ll always take the fall for him [because] I’m the older sister. I’ll take the blame. I don’t care. Blame it on me. … Andy asked me a question, I answered the question. It was my opinion and he didn’t like my answer.”

Teresa later publicly apologized to her brother via Instagram in May. “I am so sorry did not mean that at all there was so much going on during the taping that I lost myself. Love you tons ❤️ XOXO,” she wrote at the time.

Shannon Abloh Is Ready to Talk

Published

“It’s going to happen the way he wanted it to happen, or it’s not going to happen at all,” said Anne Pasternak, the director of the Brooklyn Museum, who planned Mr. Abloh’s exhibition with him and then worked with Ms. Abloh after his death. But, Mr. Burke said, she’s “not Yoko Ono.” Ms. Haley just calls her very “loyal.”

Ms. Abloh has mostly stepped away from Off-White, which is being led by Ibrahim Kamara. Though Mr. Abloh was perhaps most famous because of his work in fashion, he didn’t really think of himself as a designer. (He famously called himself a “maker.”) Design was just a means to an end, which had to do with visibility and representation — the idea that nothing was off limits to a creative mind, no matter where that mind came from, not commercial icons like Coke or Ikea or artists like Takashi Murakami or even the Chicago skyline. That was the crux of his art, and that is what Ms. Abloh sees as the essence of the Virgil Abloh Foundation.

“He didn’t want to be the only Black man in the room sitting at the table,” she said. He wanted not just to model a future for “kids that didn’t know they could be an architect, or the designer of Vuitton instead of a basketball player or a football player,” she said, but also to help make that happen. So while he may have been the first, he won’t ever be the last. “That’s what the foundation will focus on: 12- to 17-year-olds, to give them the portfolios they need. I know what he would want, and I feel just as strongly as he did about it — even though I’m a white female.”

She talks regularly to a therapist who was also Mr. Abloh’s therapist and who, she said, “knows how he thought,” and she is building a house. The house her family lives in now “has beautiful memories,” she said, “but it has a lot of sad memories, too.”

In the Mercer, Ms. Abloh was changing into a black Off-White dress for the CFDA gala. Later she would be hugged by Kim Kardashian, who was also getting an award, and the designer Jerry Lorenzo, who had worked with Mr. Abloh when they were starting out with Mr. West. She would get on a plane the next morning at 9 so she would be home when her children got back from school. She was looking forward to Miami.

That includes performances at Albany’s Palace Theatre on Dec. 6 and Newark’s New Jersey Performing Arts Center on Dec. 7.

So, if you want to catch the former “America’s Got Talent” and “Dancing With the Stars” alum spreading Christmas cheer live, here’s everything you need to know.

To accompany the tour, Stirling just dropped her 2022 Christmas-themed album “The Snow Waltz”— which also happens to be the the name of the tour.

Featuring 14 tracks made up of reimagined classics and originals, the album has been received warmly by critics.

“Stirling imbues her holiday soundtrack with a sense of realism, a spirit of adventure, and a child-like whimsy that still rings within the best of us,” said Crypticrock.com.
