Teresa Giudice has sold the home she shared with her ex-husband Joe. She revealed on the show’s March 3 episode that the home in Montvale, New Jersey, that she spent nearly 20 years in had become too much to bear.

The New York Post reported that the home reportedly stored too many memories of the couple's life together.

Teresa and Joe were wed for 20 years before announcing their separation in 2019. The pair share four children: Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana.

'It's Hard For Me To Sell The House'

“It’s hard for me to sell the house,” she said during an on-camera confessional on an episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

“[My ex-husband] Joe and I built the house together; we raised our four daughters in that home," she admitted.

However, in spite of the many memories the home shares, Teresa is looking to move on.

“I am ready for a new beginning,” she added. “I’m looking for a fresh start.”

This fresh start began by bringing in an interior designer who lightened up the once-dark interior of the home, according to The New York Post.

Her Home Got A Major Redo Ahead Of The Sale

The man chosen for the job was designer Jimmy DeLaurentis who readied her home prior to its sale.

“She was like, ‘My house needs a lot of work, it’s dark, it’s filled with old Italian stuff; Joe is gone,'” the designer said to E! Entertainment.

 “She was just like, ‘I need to feel lighter in this house.’ It’s a huge house, everything was doom and gloom and dark, and she had memories of a lot of stuff and she just wanted to brighten it up," he shared of the decor switch.

She Has Since Moved In With New Boyfriend Luis Ruelas

Teresa has since moved to what is called an investment property with her new boyfriend Luis "Louie" Ruelas.

The New York Post claimed that the property is only three houses down from her former home.

Teresa began dating Louie, who is featured prominently on her Instagram page, in November 2020 after she finalized her divorce from Joe.

The couple reportedly used a mediator to work through the details of their split reported People Magazine.

Using this method, the couple reportedly worked together for the best interests of their children to come to terms on all issues related to their marriage.
