AceShowbiz - Although Teresa Giudice and her alleged boy toy Blake Schreck have been spotted out and about numerous times amid her husband Joe Giudice's deportation drama, "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star insists that their relationship is anything but romantic. According to a source, the TV star even laughs off the rumors.
"Teresa is laughing that people think she is dating Blake Schreck," said the insider to HollywoodLife.com. "Teresa insists she and Blake Schreck are just really good friends and they constantly joke about what everyone says."
"Teresa has a ton of guy friends and enjoys going out and being flirty, but she'd never do anything about it. She's a married woman," the informant added.
The 47-year-old blonde beauty and the 26-year-old West Virginia University graduate were recently spotted having a dinner at R17, the new rooftop cocktail bar at Pier 17 in the Seaport District, on Thursday, June 27. An eyewitness revealed to the site that they "sat across from each other on the terrace."
"Teresa was drinking red wine. Blake was drinking a beer," added the eyewitness. "They were laughing a lot together. Blake was making Teresa laugh, and she was giggling. They looked very much like a couple on a date."
It was said that the pair left the bar together at 9 P.M., though the 47-year-old Bravo star appeared to be wanting to stay longer for Charli XCX's performance on the roof. However, Blake looked like he "was eager to get out of there."
The pair first sparked romance rumors after being photographed on New Year's Eve last year. A source claimed at the time that Teresa was "aggressively flirting with" the Totowa, New Jersey, native as he rubbed "her leg in a romantic way" at the Miami hot spot Big Pink.
However, Teresa previously denied that she was cheating on jailbird husband Joe Giudice with Blake. "This is a working business relationship between two professionals. They are collectively working on a project that includes other individuals and have been for quite some time. It's 100 percent strictly business," the "Standing Strong" author's attorney James J. Leonard Jr. said in a statement.
