Private investigator Bo Dietl confirmed Luis Ruelas did not hire him to look into Teresa Giudice’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” co-stars.
“I’m glad the truth finally came out— Beau Dietl & Associates is a professional investigation firm that has been in business for over 38 years,” Dietl tweeted Wednesday.
“We were never hired by Luis Ruelas to conduct investigations on any of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
The retired NYPD detective, 72, was responding to Page Six’s story that Ruelas, 48, attempted to walk back the claims he made during the show’s Season 13 finale while appearing on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” Tuesday.
Giudice, 51, claimed to Andy Cohen that her husband had “just said” that and pulled the idea “out of nowhere,” which prompted Ruelas to agree from his seat in the audience.
“I was at the end of my rope,” he explained. “It was a long season. Frustrating, you know, trying to get married.”
Cohen, 54, sarcastically called the statement an “amazing thing to come up with out of nowhere,” to which Ruelas agreed and admitted he regretted the lie.
During Tuesday’s “RHONJ” finale, the businessman claimed Dietl knew “s–t about everybody in” the room.
“I’m not talking, like, gossip,” Ruelas added. “Bo Dietl, who’s one of the most famous private investigators in the country, one of my best friends, brought me information on each person in this group.”

Giudice then definitively confirmed to Cohen that Ruelas did not hire Dietl, saying that doing so would have been a “waste of money.”
“Do you know how much that would cost? How many people are on the cast to investigate each person?” she continued.
“Do you think we’d want to waste our money on that? No, I’d rather him waste his money on me,” the Bravolebrity joked.
