Teresa Giudice’s latest Instagram post drew flak from some of her followers who criticized how much time she appeared to be spending away from her daughters. 

On Wednesday, the 50-year-old reality star took to Instagram to share a photo of her and her fiancé Luis “Louie” Ruelas, 47, at the Acqualina Resort and Spa on the Beach in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. The couple cuddled up to each other and flashed big smiles at the camera while posing together for a photo at the luxury beach resort. 

“La vie en rose,” Giudice captioned the snap. 

Fans and followers flocked to the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star’s post and criticized her for allegedly barely making time for her daughters. She has four kids with ex-husband Joe Giudice — Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania 16, and Audriana, 12. 

“Do you ever stay home? Asking for a friend,” one wrote. 

“Do you ever stay home for the children that live in your home?” another asked. 

“So who’s watching the [daughters] now?” a third user commented. 

Last month, Giudice and Ruelas went on multiple trips with just the two of them. 

They spent time at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills when they attended the MTV Movie & TV Awards in early June. They also headed to the Ritz-Carlton in Los Angeles to enjoy some downtime together later that month. 

But many fans defended Giudice, saying she was free to do whatever she wanted. 

“You’re still going to get criticized, so you might as well do whatever you want,” one fan pointed out. 

“Don’t mind the haters, Teresa. You deserve all those trips,” another added. 

The post comes a day after she confirmed to Page Six that her upcoming wedding to Ruelas would not be filmed for her Bravo reality series.

While she did not share the reason for the decision, she did say that preparations for the big day were going “great” and that she was excited about their honeymoon. 

“When you’re planning a big event, you want everything to go well, but I’m excited, of course. Can’t wait to go on our honeymoon [to] Europe,” she said. 

Over the weekend, Giudice showed off her new wedding invitations on Instagram. The bride-to-be decided to change them after one of her guests, Ramona Singer, accidentally leaked her original wedding plans. 

“I’m so excited! Our new wedding invitations are absolutely breathtaking, and our guests have all been reaching out to tell us how beautiful they are,” Giudice said in a video of her showcasing what appeared to be a transparent box containing four white roses.
