The reality star was seen in Miami holding hands with a man whose name is reportedly Blake Schreck on Feb. 16. Schreck is 26 years old and is from Totowa, New Jersey. That is just 10 miles away from where Teresa Giudice’s home.

So are the two just friends or something more? Well, this might not be the first time they’ve been out together and last time it looked like something more.

They reportedly were flirting on New Year’s Eve

This isn’t the first time the New Jersey natives have been seen out together. A source claimed she was “aggressively flirting with and perusing a man in his early 20s” at Big Pink in Miami on New Year’s Eve.

Teresa had her hands on his leg,” the source said. “At points, the two had their hands intertwined, and then the man was rubbing her leg in a romantic way.” The reality star “didn’t seem like she cared if others were looking.”

Her lawyer claims Giudice and Schreck are just friends

James Leonard Jr., who is her lawyer, addressed the rumored New Year’s Eve outing. “Teresa was out celebrating New Year’s Eve with a large group of men and women while she was in Miami,” he told Us Weekly. “They are all friends and have all known each other for a significant period of time. It’s a night out with friends, nothing more than that.”

Giudice’s husband, Joe is still serving time in prison for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud. A judge also ruled that he would be deported to Italy after finishing his 41-months sentence. The family has since filed their appeal regarding this decision.

This isn’t the first time Teresa Giudice’s lawyer has given a statement regarding their marriage. There were rumors that the reality star planned to divorce her husband and he responded to that.

Teresa is not talking about getting divorced, she is not thinking about getting divorced and she’s not filing for divorce,” Leonard Jr. told Page Six. “It’s not happening, not just now, but never. I can’t be any more clear about it.”

The lawyer also gave a statement regarding the file of Joe Giudice’s appeal. “The appeal has been filed and we remain optimistic that Joe will soon be home with his family where he belongs,” said Leonard Jr. according to E! News. “We are extremely grateful for Joe’s immigration attorneys Jerry Gonzales and Tom Moseley and are very confident in them.”
