Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has stepped out again with her boy toy Blake Schreck. For the first time since February, eyewitnesses spotted the 47-year-old reality star with the 26-year-old realtor, and it appears that they were on a date.
Giudice and Schreck were sitting across from each other at a table at R17, a new rooftop cocktail bar at Pier 17 in the Seaport District, and she was drinking a glass of red wine while he enjoyed a beer. Witnesses say the duo were talking and laughing before leaving together at around 9 p.m. before Charli XCX performed.

“Blake was eager to get her out of there,” the eyewitness told Us Weekly. “When Teresa came out of the bathroom, she asked Blake if they could stay and he said, ‘I already called the elevator. Let’s get out of here.’”
When cameras spotted Giudice and Schreck holding hands at a black-tie event in Miami back in February, her lawyer James J. Leonard, Jr. insisted that the pair simply had a business relationship and they had been working on a project together for a long time.
“It’s 100 percent strictly business,” said Leonard, and anyone who thinks otherwise is “uninformed.”
An insider also claims that the two are just close friends, and they are laughing at people who think they are dating. The source added that Giudice has a lot of guy friends, and she enjoys being flirty and going out. But, she is a married woman, so she would never do anything about it.
Meanwhile, Teresa’s husband Joe is still sitting in an ICE detention center waiting for the final decision on his deportation appeal. Teresa told Andy Cohen during the Season 9 RHONJ reunion that if Joe is deported to his native Italy, that would be the end of their 20-year marriage because she isn’t going to move to Italy and she doesn’t do long-distance relationships.
Teresa Giudice said that it has been difficult for her and her four daughters – Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10 – to live life without Joe. She says that he has already missed so much, and if he is deported, he will miss even more.
Bravo cameras have been documenting the deportation drama, and fans will get to see it all play out when new episodes of Real Housewives of New Jersey return later this year.
