Teresa Giudice responds to the persistent rumors that she is secretly dating 26-year-old New Jersey real estate agent Blake Schreck.
According to a new report, the Castro member of Real Housewives of New Jersey, 47, laughs at the claim of a romance between her and Blake. The rumors started earlier this year and appeared again at the end of last month.
“Teresa laughs that people think she’s dating Blake Schreck,” a source near Teresa told Hollywood Life. “Teresa insists that she and Blake Schreck are just really good friends and that they are constantly joking about what everyone is saying. Teresa has a lot of friends and loves to go out and be flirty, but she would never do anything about it. She is a married woman. “
After a few outings in Miami earlier this year, Teresa and Blake came to the rooftop bar of Pier 17 in New York City, where a Us Weekly source claimed they “looked very much like a couple.”
“Blake made Teresa laugh, and she giggled,” the source claimed.
After the last series of reports, Teresa’s attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., denied claims of a secret romance and told Hollywood Life that Teresa’s relationship with Blake was strictly professional.
“This is a business relationship. They work with others on a business project. Anyone who says something to the contrary is deceptive and uninformed,” he explained.
While Teresa’s husband, Joe Giudice, is currently facing an impending deportation, she has remained committed to staying strong for the sake of their family, including their four daughters, Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14 and Audriana, 10.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return to Bravo TV later this year for season 10.
