Exclusive: James Marchese Slams Sources Who Claim His Wife, Amber Marchese Wasn’t Asked Back To The Real Housewives Of New Jersey

Jim Marchese slams rumors his wife, Amber Marchese was not asked to return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey. James Marchese comments on Richard Wakile’s Tweet and what really happened with the infamous scene with Victoria Gotti telling his wife Amber Marchese and Teresa Giudice that Reno Aprea had an affair with his Mother In Law..

For those of you have not heard, Amber Marchese announced to People she and her husband James Marchese would not be returning to The Real Housewives Of New Jersey;

“Jim and I have been giving Real Housewives or New Jersey a lot of thought and given the current state of affairs regarding our personal lives and the direction of the show, we officially decided to move on,” Marchese says. “The show was not what we expected it to be, and I want to pursue more suitable endeavors.”

Amber continued by stating;

“I was picked on a casting call while pursuing acting, and the person that was presented was created for the show. I had little control over content, situations, or what they decide to show the viewers,”

Amber Marchese also revealed her onscreen relationship with RHONJ twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano – which at times turned ugly told People– was fabricated. We keep telling you all not to get so emotionally invested with these shows–they are fabricated and are made for Entertainment!

Amber Marchese continued by telling People;

“Even my relationship with the twins was created. I recruited them for my storyline after I was chosen,” she says. “I only met with Teresa Guidice andDina Manzo for filming purposes. I never built a friendship with them as we were nothing more than co-workers. I wish them all well and the best of luck, although, my husband does not share my sentiments.”

Amber ended with thanking everyone for support, followed by;

It is a dream as an aspiring actress to get a lead role, but as with all careers, as one door closes, God willing, another one will open,” she says. “For anyone following my story, I plan on continuing my blog. God bless to all!”

Amber also told USWeekly

I am happy I did it, I learned a great deal. However, RHONJ is a hard gig that requires one to be heartless and cruel. I am not either. I have learned too much in my life and have too much love in my heart to intentionally hurt anyone. I am a girls’ girl and do not want to see my friends in pain and this show requires you to be deceitful. Many good things came from the show: a great platform for breast cancer awareness and some amazing friendships. I just want to thank everyone who has supported me and has shown nothing but kindness through my difficult times. It is a dream as an aspiring actress to get a lead role, but as with all careers, as one door closes, God willing, another one will open. I wish the old and new cast all the best! God bless to all!”

Well it doesn’t end here. While gathering information for a different article yet to be published, Reality TV Scandals was told Amber Marchese wasn’t asked back.

As far as the Marcheses– they were not asked back. They are trying to make it look they quit. Andy Cohen allows Housewives to handle their exits and Amber chooses to make this is spectacle

As the discussion continued;  I asked about Amber Marchese revealing production had her call Teresa Giudice and talk about her legal issues our source replied;

“It is no secret the ladies that are recruited for the franchises usually don’t know one and other, of course encouraging interaction does happen”

Our source also offered;

“I know what you are going to ask next. Amber admitted to recruiting Bobby and the Aprea twins. The Marcheses falsified their relationship with Bobby and the twins, they wanted their 15 minutes and got it, now that their 15 minutes is up, they are trying to get 15 minutes more”

We of course had to get to the Marchese’s side of the story, we had the pleasure of communicating with the Marcheses and they tell a different story.  We also asked for a comment regarding Richard Wakile‘s tweet and what really happened with the infamous scene.. yes, that one; Victoria Gotti alleging Reno Aprea had an affair with his mother in law.

Their spin is laughable, my wife is being treated for cancer and my company was awarded $8.5 Million for assisting in the largest Bank Fraud case in history. We made it clear that we were not coming back if Teresa Guidice was coming back. I made it very public well over six months ago that we were not interested in coming back to film with a convicted Felon for Bank Fraud. Amber and I made it very clear we were not happy with the direction.

Congratulations on the $8.5 million dollars win! And it is true, Jim Marchese especially has been a critic of the Giudices crimes.  Love or hate Jim for it, at least what you see with Jim Marchese it what you get.

Jim Marchese continued;

The fact is undeniable: Bravo called Amber off a casting call as a paid actress. This was not recruiting a friend of a friend, this was not about fame, it was a job. In fact, one of the Producers worked with Amber on Restaurant Stakeout another “Reality Show”. Amber’s names on that show was “Angela” and she was a bartender who stole money on an episode “To catch a thief.” You have to love Reality TV. Amber acquired the role in RHONJ by hard work and being picked out of crowd, I have the emails, supporting documents and contracts to prove she did not even know she was auditioning for RHONJ.

Bravo knew we recruited the twin and that they signed contracts with us. I know Bravo was aware that the twins relationship with Amber was contrived because I personally had to give written approval for the twins to sign Bravos contract with the twins. Bravo specifically wanted twins and a family with a restaurant. For the record, the Twins contract with Amber and I was made public, by me. I provided it to “All About the Tea” prior to the “reunion show”.

As for your source that says Amber’s 15 minutes of Fame is over, funny she has been offered a acting role a real “SAG job”. As for my fame, I guess your source lacks the sophistication to read, The Wall Street Journal, or watch MoneyBEAT and FOX BUSINESS. I do not need or want fame for RHONJ; that is like saying I have “Herpes” love me!

Again, to be fair, this information was told us while getting information for another article, at the same time, Marchese is also telling the truth. We respect anyone who is truthful– no matter how uncomfortable the truth is.

As far as Richard Wakile’s tweet; when Jim and Amber made the announcement they would not be returning, Rich tweeted; (this is a screenshot of Richard’s tweet, as you all know, Rich has a habit of deleting tweets)

Richard Wakile Tweet

As for Richie and Kathey, I met them once. They seem like nice people, in fact Richie warned me to run! He said RHONJ [production] makes you do disgusting thing to bring the show ratings and it has ripped his family apart. I have taken his advice, so he gets a pass on this one. You were right Rich, Thanks for the heads up.

I asked the Marcheses what really happened with the imfamous scene with Victoria Gotti telling Teresa and Amber that Reno Aprea had an affair with this mother in law..

The Reno story, this was 100% Teresa Guidici and Production. I don’t know or care.

We can say this: We do know Teresa Giudice and Victoria were friends. Victoria told Wendy Williams she was sorry for how everything came about, however, that was low and Victoria Gotti should be ashamed of herself, she can’t use the excuse of being a Reality TV rookie, she appeared in her own series on A&E, Growing Up Gotti and on NBC The Celebrity Apprentice, Victoria knows the game.

Jim Marchese ended with,

In closing, Amber has and will continue to write for People Magazine about her Journey. She has had an amazing response to the blog and has done such a wonderful job that she is been repeatedly asked to attend events for patients and professionals. Amber is utilizing her education by speaking at Hospitals and with Physicians about Genetic testing, raising awareness and finding a cure. I could not be more proud of her. She is positively impacting thousands of women everyday talking about new therapies and better options. 

Good for you Amber! We are rooting for you!

We do wish the Marchese’s the best, we hope Amber is able to continue to inspire others with her cancer journey and recovery. We hope Amber can start a charity of some type to help woman who have had breast cancer; rather it’s helping them get implants or wigs or just offering support.

As for James Marchese: Keep being you and telling it is like it is.
