Apparently my blind yesterday about the legal troubles of the significant other of this east coast Housewife, prompted reporters to search out the lawsuits and then report on them as if they had broken the story.

Joe 2.0? ‘RHONJ’ Star Teresa Giudice New Fiancé Luis Ruelas Hit With $113k Lawsuit
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s fiancé, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, is facing a $113,000 lawsuit from a vendor that worked with Produce Depot, a company he is involved with.
C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc is suing Produce Depot, Luis, 47, and a business partner, claiming they sold “fresh fruit and vegetables” to the company, which in turn “failed and refused to pay for the commodities it ordered, received, and accepted from Plaintiff, despite due demand,” court docs filed in September 2021 and obtained by The Sun reveal.
Docs state that Luis and a business partner “are or were owners, officers, directors, members and/or at least 10 percent shareholders of Produce Depot during the relevant time period, making them ‘responsibly connected.’”
Ruelas and his business partners fought back in their own filing, arguing in December 2021 they were “not individuals which are or were in custody, control or management” of the produce business at the time, also requesting the judge dismiss their case.
The company Luis was involved in filed for $1,660,488.10 in bankruptcy on March 2, 2022, and asked the judge to temporarily postpone the lawsuit proceedings due to the development. Produce Depot and Ruelas’ business partner were later granted a postponement by the judge, but it’s still ongoing for Ruelas and another defendant who was added to the case. – Source
