After all, this “housewife” may not be so real.

Teresa Giudice is being accused of modeling a fake Chanel bikini in an Instagram photo of her trip to Tulum – just a week after her husband, Luis Ruelas, gifted the Bravo star’s four daughters with Cartier bracelets that fans believed were fakes.

In the poolside photo posted on Tuesday, the 50-year-old “Real Housewives of New Jersey” alum wears a black two-piece bathing suit with interlocking white Chanel Cs sewn onto the top.

But some on social media thought the designer’s badge looked dodgy.

“We love supposedly designer-inspired swimwear here!” Instagram account The Real Bad Fashions captioned side-by-side photos calling the scaled-down ensemble a Giudice.

“Also, before you hear ‘it has a tag’💤💤💤… do you really think that if someone can supposedly copy a design, the same cannot happen with a tag? It’s 2023, babies, not 1923.”

Account creator Ben T. shared photos of similar “luxury swimwear” listed on Poshmark in an attempt to prove his point and appeared to convince his followers that Giudice’s bikini was not the real thing.

“Does Chanel make cheap bikinis like this? I highly doubt it,” wrote one, while another joked, “She ironed that CC herself.”

“Oh my god, the Cs look so bad!!” a third exclaimed, while a fourth asked: “I don’t understand, these women have money, but why do they buy fakes?!”

And a fifth person wondered if the suit was “another” of Ruelas’ Christmas presents for his family.

A similar black bikini is available for $229 at Poshmark, which only authenticates items costing $500 or more; many Chanel suits are listed for four figures on the platform, as well as on luxury resale sites like The RealReal and high-end online marketplaces including 1stdibs.

A representative for Giudice did not immediately respond to Page Six Style’s request for comment.

After social media users questioned whether Giudice de Ruelas’ children’s new Cartier trinkets might be fake, rather than Juste Un Clou bracelets studded with real diamonds – which retail for $12,500 a piece – eldest daughter Milania 16, deleted his TikTok showing off his vacation haul.

Time will tell if her mother’s Instagram post will be the next to go.
