Exclusive Interview [Part 1]: Jim Marchese Blows The Lid Off of Bobby & Nicole’s Fake Relationship!

Posted on Sep 2 2014 - 7:05pm by Editor

amber-marchese-jim-family

Last week, Jim Marchese, husband of Amber Marchese, and star of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” granted All About The Tea an EXCLUSIVE and in depth interview.

Jim spilled the tea on many hot topics surrounding his RHONJ costars, the Giudice’s legal drama, the whistleblower case and broken friendships. He was gracious and opened up about his broken friendship with Bobby Ciasulli. The interview is piping hot and well deserving of two parts. Part two will be published tomorrow. 

Enjoy part one of the interview below: 

1. AATT: How has the show affected your friendship with Bobby?

Jim: “We have not talked since he came to my house after the first responders party. We did one more scene together and it was not a pleasant one so we don’t have a relationship at this point.”

2. AATT: Did reality TV ruin your friendship?

Jim: “We’ve known each other over 10 years. It’s definitely a hard thing. I know it was Bobby’s desire to be famous, the show didn’t do it. He made a choice that he needed a storyline and he sacrificed our friendship to get there. It’s bad but it’s not incredibly shocking to me his desire to be famous is his 1st, 2nd and 3rd priority and that’s what he did.”

 

3. AATT: Do you think Bobby and Nicole have a genuine relationship?

Jim:Amber and I got contacted by a casting company, she [Amber] gets offered the job first, then they asked her to bring in 3 to 4 other women. We interviewed 8 women. They end up picking the twins. Bobby tried to sleep with every single one of the women that was interviewed to be on the show. He [Bobby] found the twins at the Dunkin Donuts and thought they would be perfect. Bobby started dating her [Nicole] because of the show. Not for any other reason. He didn’t like her or wasn’t attracted to her but he wanted to be on the show and that’s where the relationship started. And I did know the real girl he was dating. He and I have been friends for a lot of years and I’ve heard how he spoke about her [Nicole] versus other girls he dated and I don’t know if it’s genuine.”

 

4. AATT: Do you feel Bobby betrayed you for fame?

Jim: “Do you know about the recent Bank of America settlement? The $17 billion dollar settlement…”Mortgage Now,” which is my company, we were brought in as experts on this and listed as one of the people that assisted the government and it’s actually in the settlement. Bobby knew I was working on that case for 4 1/2 years and he knew I had to keep a distance from certain situations because of this. He knew I wasn’t suppose to film with certain people. And it was nothing personal….I was working on bank fraud. That’s what really rubbed me when he put me in that situation when I got him the job and I got his girlfriend the job and Rino’s wife the job. He knew this was the biggest case of my life…a landmark case and for him to jeopardize my livelihood because he wants a storyline. I don’t know how you reconcile it but what you can get a feel for is, the level of betrayal. It’s not like he needs the money, he’s Bobby Ciasulli. The Ciasulli Auto Mall makes $500 million a year…that’s his daddy’s company, so it’s not like he needs the money. He just likes the fame.” 

Jim“I’m not a spooner [silver spooner]. I work for everything I have in my life. My house was 1,200 square feet growing up. Four kids and one bathroom, it wasn’t glamorous. I had $200,000 in student loans when I got out of school. I work my butt OFF! Nothing was given to me. We’re [Bobby and I] from two different worlds in that respect. That’s why the betrayal and what he did was…..[short pause]….we’re DONE! I’ll never talk to him again!” 

 

5. AATT: Did you know the Giudice were going to plead guilty?

Jim: “I knew the Giudice’s were going to plead guilty. I read their case. I didn’t work on their case but you know when you got a guilty party. It’s very simple…did you file your tax returns?…no…ok, that’s a provable fact. No one is going to a grand jury and say you didn’t file your tax returns if you really did. A U.S. Attorney is not going to do that. I also read the bankruptcy documents and watched the television show and it’s very clear they didn’t show their assets. The mortgage fraud case is huge because if you don’t file tax returns you can not get a mortgage. And one of the documents you sign say’s you filed tax returns. Their case is cut and dry.”

Writing Staff at All About The Tea

  • WestCoastFeed

    He sounds reasonable in this interview. Yet, he has been on twitter again today and making an ass of himself again. He threatened to sue another blogger because he thought she libelled his company. And he was a big threatening bully about it, I think he realized he was wrong and stopped tweeting for about an hour. It’s hard to tell for sure. He still hasn’t figured out twitter. He favorited and retweeted a comment that was critical of him.

    • twifan2

      LOL He’s funny…sometimes. 😀

      • JIM’s hysterical

        • gessiewtf

          He is more interesting than the show.

    • SIREN MEDIA had to call JIM ?
      I bet they took his phone and twitter away lol ???

      • WestCoastFeed

        Who knows what happened. He cut and pasted the sentence that he thought was libellous. Or, I think that was his intention. It was a factual statement about a case he cites himself to crow about his upright intentions. A case where an ex Mortgage Now employee was indicted for fraud. And that is what the blogger said. For some reason, Jim thought she was saying Mortgage now had been indicted. Or I think that’s what he thought. Anyway, I think he has shut up about it.

        • MortgageNow does not have a brokers license = FACT – in all reality it is a defunct company in my opinion.

          • WestCoastFeed

            The best part of the whole exchange is that she called him “a little piece of dribblepiss.”

        • I like Jim to prove HE is the legal technical principal owner of MortgageNOW and was the principal owner during the lawsuits. My research says HE was NOT principal owner.

          • WestCoastFeed

            This case included a Mortgage Now employee who worked there before Jim joined the firm. He was just testifying as an informer.

          • the ugly truth

            He seems to be really comfortable in that role, doesn’t he? Little jackass.

          • WestCoastFeed

            that appears to be his main source of income.

          • Agstisme

            I agree!! I can’t find anything either. He will not say what he does for a living.

          • WestCoastFeed

            He talks around things and seldom gives a direct answer. He has said that he tweets when he takes breaks from writing briefs.

          • Jennymckitty

            Unfortunately, in NJ you have to order the articles of incorporation and can’t just view them online.

          • In a civil suite with Jim as plaintiff…Defendant brief to judge was based on the fact that Jim was NOT principal owner and brief had attachments.

    • Say it ain’t so. Who’s the blogger?

      • WestCoastFeed

        Tamara Tattles who was recapping the YouTube video he did.

        • twifan2

          Oh good Lord! :/
          smh

          • WestCoastFeed

            She was not intimidated.

          • Of course not….#CrazyBitch

          • twifan2

            Cray Cray meet Loon! 😀

          • Agstisme

            You are not kidding Sista!!!!!

        • #Karma

  • CAN Jim prove he has won any lawsuit he has ever filed? I can not find were Jim Marchese has won a single civil suit EVER…….lost – yes

    • twifan2

      How many has he filed? Lawsuits, that is.

    • Jennymckitty

      Didn’t they win the lawsuit filed against The bank David Widlak had before he was murdered? I think Mortgage Now won that one.

  • September24

    I think Bobby was his only friend.

    • twifan2

      Amber wasn’t his friend? 🙁

    • RealitytvJunkie

      I was thinking the same thing. Sounds like a bromance gone wrong!

    • lol – i think so— their town has 12k people in it…Bobbi is very popular

    • Bwahahaha! That shit is funny!!

  • Marsbars09

    Whoa! I liked how he spilled the tea on everybody! LOL!
    So, if what Jimmy says is correct Bobby is a famewhore like the rest of them. I was under the impression that Nicole dated Bobby for a long time. Their relationship is just for the show. I’ll be damned. No wonder Bobby hemming and hawing when Santa asked him if he was serious about Nicole.

    • Booyah!!!!

      Hiya Marsie! 🙂

    • WestCoastFeed

      He and Nicole talked about how they had only dated for 8 or 8 1/2 months. A few episodes later that became a year.

      • Sounds like BOTH JIM/BOBBI say that Bobbi met Nicole Feb 2013, started dating Feb/Mar 2013. Jim is saying Nicole was getting interviewed to be cast Mar 2013 and FILMING began in OCT 2013. That technically makes dating Feb to Oct = 8 months, then you film at Christmas and that makes 10……

        • WestCoastFeed

          And Valentine’s Day makes it a year.

  • Marsbars09

    Great interview! Can you share how you got Jim to talk to you? 🙂

    • Jennymckitty

      He has been on Twitter nonstop for over a week. The better question would be, how do you get Jim Marchese to shut up? Hey Marsie! Hope you are having a good day.

      • twifan2

        I know! I know!
        Shove a donut in his mouth! 😉

        • Jennymckitty

          If you ask him about passing the bar, he quiets down for about an hour. But I’d like to see a donut shoved down his throat.

      • i bet siren media is asking how they can shut jim up – lol – blows the lid off of siren/bravo secrets

        • gessiewtf

          I know. This could be the nail in the coffin of these reality housewives shows, which we have all known are fake.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Miss Jenny! I don’t think there’s anything we can do about Marsleezy’s diarrhea of the mouth.

  • WestCoastFeed

    He has modified his statements about the part he played in casting the show. On twitter it sounded like he screened the potentials and wrote their bios and was himself responsible for their being cast. He has back-pedaled that claim.

    • utube he said it loud n clear – jim interviewed n bobbi dated = them

    • daisy100

      bravo probably got on his ass about that casting lie! And no, he didn’t work hard for everything he has, he blew the whistle on a scheme he was part of, AFTER getting fired. Now all he does is look for more whistle blowing opportunities, such as when an employee of his very own Mortgage Now company was doing mortgage fraud. He fancies himself a prosecutor/attorney, but he’s just a rat that likes to sue everyone.

    • the ugly truth

      This guy is completely self serving and has lied before when it was in his best interest.

  • Birdie11

    BOOM!! Fabulous! My favorite part is Bobby picking up the twins at a Dunkin Donuts like common street whores. That is just TOO hilarious.

    • twifan2

      I will never look at my jelly-filled donuts the same again! 🙁

      • Birdie11

        Dunkin Donuts is a hotbed for dirty action!!

        • twifan2

          Say that ain’t so, Birdie! :'(
          *cries into sprinkle donuts*

          • Birdie11

            I LOVE those donuts…I don’t care who pollutes the place.

        • I am soooo going to Dunking Donuts in NJ

          • Birdie11

            Report back immediately!

          • twifan2

            Taking head cam on the ‘journey’! 😉

          • twifan2

          • twifan2

            Well, I’m not going back to Dunkins again. 🙁

        • September24

          Quick! Someone tell Sonja to get to Dunkin Donuts!

          • LMFAOO! Better warn the teen male workers.

    • Laugh my FAT ARSS OFF U GO GIRL

      • Birdie11

        Do you think all 6 eyes met across a dozen glazed and it was all over??

        • ROFLMAO!!!!! #DunkinLove

            #yesplease

          • twifan2

            Oh YEAH! 😀
            I was looking for that ‘classic’ video! LOL

          • Ahahahaha Lawd!!!!!!

          • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

            Okay, so I know I must be just not lovin’ on Beyoncé cuz I just don’t care. So is this like a James Franco and Seth Rogan parody that copies one of The Bayz songs??
            If so, I dig it!

    • Great! I can thank Bobby for ruining my Boston cream the next time I see it oozing the creamy filling. LOL! 🙂

      • Birdie11

        OH NO!! Time for a flavor change!

      • twifan2

        Better than those $35 for 4 lava thingys, Tre is hawking! >(

      • Marsbars09

        Huh?

    • Marsbars09

      Great description of how he found them too. Remember Nicole made it sound like she casually met him at Dunkin’ Donuts? Girl, he was picking her up to try out for the Housewives.
      These folks are nothing but smoke and mirrors.

      • Birdie11

        YES! They are one sorry bunch.

  • Jim Marchese still have no LICENSES’; NO MORTGAGE BROKER, NO BANKER, NO ATTORNEY = you are a FRAUD in my opinion

    • twifan2

      Fits right in with the Jersey cast-imo. 🙂

    • Whoa!!!! No comment!

    • WestCoastFeed

      the Mortgage Now website does include its New Jersey License #.

      • As of last month Jim Marchase did NOT have an active license when I checked. The license he has posted could be defunct because the one I checked was defunct and his name brings up no licenses in NY/NJ

  • Jim Marchese = common business practice to avoid even the appearance of impropriety, therefore ur WIFE being at Gotti/Giudice HOMES? #rhonj

  • WestCoastFeed

    I want to thank Jim for sharing his legal expertise on the Giudice plea bargains. As if we all didn’t read the original indictments and know then that Juicy and Tre were guilty as sin.

    • DOC always said from day 1 TRE/JOE will have to take a plea deal #duh!

      • WestCoastFeed

        Doc and everyone else who posts here who took the time to read the government’s case.

    • Tee tee hee hee!!

    • Birdie11

      It just sounds just so much more insightful and brilliant coming from Jimmy.

      • the ugly truth

        Oh barf.

        • Birdie11

          BIG time.

      • Marsbars09

        I agree!
        How birdie! I haven’t heard from you in a while. I hope all is well with you.

        • Birdie11

          Hey Marsie!! I am well!

  • Agstisme

    IMO…TT touched on a nerve with ole’ Jimbo Marsleezy. His swift reaction on Twitter was done without a second thought. I choke when I type this but in TT defense, she did say an employee of Mortgage One. He’s gonna eat crow.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yes, he had no grounds for attacking her that way and he really should apologize. All he did was make himself look bad again. Just when he was beginning to redeem himself by being nice on twitter.

      • Marsbars09

        Face it, WCF. Mr. Marsleezy shoots himself in the foot each time he opens his mouth.
        Jimmy and Amber are a perfect match for each other.

      • Apologize??? For what?

    • the ugly truth

      Thank you! I am so sick of watching everyone kiss his butt. He is retaliating for the fact most people were repelled by him and his cocky attitude and is getting back at the producers for not giving him a warm, fuzzy edit. This guy is a creep and how people can overlook his sleazy past, I do not know. I think all of this makes him look incredibly bitter.

      • His past can never be forgotten.

      • JenQueen

        Even without knowing a thing about his sleazy past he is a creep. And, honestly he is an immature jerk to say these things about Bobby…whether they are true or not. Jim’s behavior makes him (Jim) look like a spoiled brat. And I don’t for a moment believe he read the Guidice’s case at all. It’s easy to say AFTER the fact that I knew it was going to happen.

    • Marsbars09

      Marsleezy. Love it!

      • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

        You coined a new word Marsie…Marsleezy!

        • Marsbars09

          No TCF, Agstisme takes the credit for that! 🙂

          • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

            Ahhhh…works for me!

  • distressed

    Great post AATT. Thanks for going above and beyond the call of duty with this repulsive group of scumbags, posers and admitted felons on the NJ franchise. It’s important. Can’t wait for part two.

    • WestCoastFeed

      It is really a sorry lot, isn’t it?

      • Marsbars09

        Pathetic.

        • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

          …and unpitiful.

    • Distressed….always a pleasure reading your post and your fond descriptions of this fine group of upstanding members of the community. LOL!

    • Thank goodness no HW franchise is apart of my community.

    • Marsbars09

      You hit the hammer on the nail with that comment.

  • WestCoastFeed

    For a bit of good news, Kathy’s cookbook is now #5 of Amazon’s Hot New Releases in Dessert Cookbooks. I wish her all the success in the world.

    • Trippinhhard

      Good for Kathy — her food looks delicious……

    • Marsbars09

      Congrats to Kathy! I wish her nothing but the best as well.

    • gessiewtf

      Oh, who the hell cares.

      • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

        I stands by West…so I, the hell care!

      • *raise hand* I care……Kathy rocks!!!

        • Marsbars09

          LOL!

      • Birdie11

        It’s always great to see an honest, hard working woman succeed.

        • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

          Say it again Birdie!!!!

        • Shaneka Johnson

          Good thing she was related to Teresa Guidice and got on the show because of her and rode her coat tails trashing her for 3 seasons, thus getting a book deal.

    • distressed

      I love Kathy. Good for her.

  • woww

    bobby keeps girls all over the place and cant keep names straight…in fact bobby mocked the types of women on these shows as he was in talks to be on rhonj in writing

    • Thanks for the tea, woww! Keep it coming.

      • Guest

        do u know him too ;)?

      • woww

        bobby was at one time a nice guy but the obsession wth fame won. he let true friendships crash and burn for fifteen minutes of this shitshow. he has a serious family tragedy in the past that can prob be found w some digging, as well as fraud in the family biz….if everyone elses fraud is going to talked about lets get that out there too

  • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

    I don’t know, the believability of anything that any of the “players” say on any of these franchise shows that have “real” or “reality” attached to their names, is just a bit rough for me.
    Maybe these “players/actors/wannabe stars” should run for some political office or attempt to be a lawyer because it really seems like they are very adept at stretching what “truth or honesty” is suppose to mean.
    I just can’t watch them anymore because I think that they are really “editing” exercises and games to manipulate any given “scene”.

    • Marsbars09

      And can you believe Bobby of all people used this show to try to become famous? My God, this show is supposed to be about housewives! Everybody and their mother wants to be famous!
      Geesh…

      • The crazy part is Bobby has enough money to hire his own production company to film his own reality show.

        • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

          Oh…Yahayyy….

          • Marsbars09

            You’re funny TCF!

            Love Ya Marsie.
            You totally got my voice inflections by written word!
            Too much country fried lips!

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Doc! Maybe he’s pinching pennies and taking the supposed easy route to fame?

          • Also the RHONJ is already established and popular. Half the work is done for him.

  • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

    I think they’ve got a sleeze-orama going on with NJ!

    • That sounds like the name of Tre’s spray tan color. LOL!

      • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

        Okay, so I scared the cat on that one when I Hardee Harr’d out Loud, with just a bit too much on the edge!

        Maybe it could be a sleeze and slime-orama! Oh wait…that would be “Naked Dating”.

        • LMAOO….imagining the scene.

          • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

            Whell, they’re good for a laugh anywayz!
            Arn Arn Arn….

          • THAT is exactly what i keep saying n telling ……they are not pulling the wool over any1 eyes imo

          • Judging from how people on Twitter are blaming Jimbo for leaking the Santa affair I would say they are more than taking this mess seriously.

    • Birdie11

      Dunkin should name a limited edition donut after them.

      • Colts Neck Dunkin Donuts has gone Hollywood! 😉

      • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

        Whatz a good name for it.
        Treez Orange Slime Donut Delight??? No, wait, that’s probably what Juicy named his favorite girl’s “Y” action.
        I know TMI….Where’s Twi with the brain bleach???

          • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

        • Who Knew ?

          • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

            Only her hair dresser/wig maker knows, fer sher!
            Do y’all remember the lengths that the 4077th went to find out if “Hot Lips” lower 40 matched her upper head hair action on “MASH”. What a great movie and then as a series!

          • No way!!!!

          • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

            I really like this ^^^^^^. Very funny.

      • Afternoon Delight at Dunkin Donuts = is this the new craigslist porn/hooker meet up place?
        I live in isolation all we have is convenience store donuts, craigslist, and a transvestite who walks around in heels, blonde wig, big fake boobs, in 110 degree weather. Walks the strip all day.

        • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

          Oh My… I hope that the faux girl doesn’t trip in her heels, or melt ’em.

          • Birdie11

            Or slip on a jelly donut.

        • Ahahahaha!! That some funny chit.

      • Twins are a twist donut
        Joe G is a jelly donut cause he puts his fruit everywhere
        Jim is Fritter
        Amber is a Timbits because of her irregular personality
        Juicy is a glazed donut – no explanation needed
        Rino is a sugar donut because he gossips like a girl all sweetly
        Teresa G is a ring donut…ding a ling
        Melisa is a powdered sugar donut..cause she allegedly likes the white stuff
        Bobby is a cake donut because he is big and thick

        • Birdie11

          Love it…HAHAHA!!

        • Lorn

          All this did was make me hungry.

  • Tre’s a Convicted Felon

    Hey Y’all, I’m a gonna take a hike.
    I sure enjoyed spritzin’ with y’all!
    You made my day and night for this day!
    And only a couple weeks ’til the EYEtalian Donut Dolly gets her go to meetin’ “wit da Judge”.
    My Angels to all of your Angels…’cuz Angels just like to be there for us!

  • Dave

    Bobby is a POS for doing that to his former friend. Fame is a hell of a drug.

  • Lorn

    Wouldn’t it be funny if Jim was the only person on this show telling the truth.

    • distressed

      Funny HA HA or funny strange?

      • Lorn

        I think at the time I was thinking funny ha ha.

  • Jennymckitty

    I may be remembering this incorrectly, but I could have sworn I read that the twins were discussed as additions to the cast before last season began to film. They didn’t mention their names until this season. Does anyone else remember that?

  • Dani-K

    This guy is a tool. Notice how he says that “he” got the twins the job. Umm, no you didn’t. At best, you recommended them for the job.

    • Jennymckitty

      I still think the twins came first.

  • Babson_Chick

    IMO they’re all quilty of something – even if it’s just being stupid and a fameho!!

    • And that’s a fact Jack!

      • Babson_Chick

        Kinda sad – they’re just so bad
        Not really stars – put them behind bars
        Yipes – make them wear stripes.

        Morning to ya Doc – missed ya’ll!!

        • Morning Babs! Hope all is well. How was the Keys?

          • Babson_Chick

            Everything is fine here. Loved the ferry ride to/from Key West – so many places to eat & drink, lol. Fav was touring Hemingway House and petting the cats.

          • That’s really nice..sounds relaxing. I was there years ago in the 90’s. I ate the best conch I’ve ever had there.

          • Babson_Chick

            Didn’t try that – maybe next time.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Volunteer fireman do serve the public–Nicole tweeted this from this morning.

    https://twitter.com/RHONJTwins/status/507189313738899456/photo/1

    • This is really shitty for Nicole to tweet. First of all, Bobby is NOT a fireman, he’s a First Responder…there’s a difference. And knowing that Bobby only took the First Responders course because of the show, tweeting this is an insult to all the real First Responders out there doing the job. Have a seat Nicole…several!

      • WestCoastFeed

        Jim has tweeteed that is was a training photo.

        Bobby has said in the past that he had 200 hours of training for the volunteer fireman post.

        • Bobby is a volunteer First Responder not a Fireman. And after seeing this pic, he’s a fameho!

          • twifan2

            Hope Bobby knows how to apply a tourniquet ‘around the neck’!? 😀

          • Jennymckitty

            Unfortunately, no props at the reunion.

          • twifan2

            Dang! 🙁

          • WestCoastFeed

            Even Jim has called him a Volunteer Fireman. Evidently that 247 is his badge number.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Here’s the roster from the Colts Neck Fire Department. He is listed in Co#2 along with Bruce Springsteen’s son, Sam.

            http://www.cnfd.org/members.html

          • Yes…all First Responders are listed.

          • WestCoastFeed

            They are all Volunteer Firemen. They all took close to 200 hours of training for the positions.

          • He’s a FIRST RESPONDER!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Just how is that different from being a volunteer?

          • 1st Responders are basically that – FIRST responder to a site. They block off traffic & call in if more help is needed.

          • Anne Green

            A volunteer firefighter is trained to do just that….fight fires!!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Bobby completed the training program.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I don’t think the Boss would appreciate your trying to minimize what his son is doing.

          • twifan2

            Where? What fire depts?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Monmouth County held the training.

          • twifan2

            ALL 160hrs?! :/

        • twifan2

          That’s a lot of hrs for a First Responder.
          Training programs are usually 40hrs. o.0

    • twifan2

      What ‘fires’ he putting out?!

  • WestCoastFeed

    I think we now have a clue why the Atlantic City scenes have not been aired yet. And it is because one housewife had one too many and revealed that her husband enjoyed it when she put on a strap on. You can guess which blogger has this. But Dina made it very clear in a comment she made about Jim. just which housewife she was talking about. The blog says Bravo decided not to air the scene rather than deal with Jim’s threatened lawsuit.

    • twifan2

      It’s not like we haven’t been subjected to raunchy behavior before by Bravo, so what’s the biggy deal?
      JimBooB being ‘outed’ by his own wife? o.0

    • All About The Tea

      Interesting….

      • WestCoastFeed

        Sorry, AATT, Dina exposed this story at the first responders’ party when she made a comment about Jim taking it up the ass.

        • When Dina said that, it was clear she wasn’t referencing a previous story. She clearly was taking an on-the-spot jab.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Here’s part of Dina’s August 12th blog that explains it.

            Dina Manzo explains her comments about Jim Marchese and Melissa Gorga (and dishes on her date).Posted by Dina Manzo

            Now let’s talk about the first responders fall out and what I said to Amber’s husband Jim. At this point in our relationship there was so much sexual talk between us girls that you didn’t get to see. You know chicks get together, open a bottle of wine, and the giggles begin. Amber had shared some of her hysterical stories of shall I say…taking over in the bedroom with us, and I would tease her endlessly.

            So calling Jim a bitch and telling Amber to shove it up his ass was COMPLETELY inappropriate but actually more of a joke, because I knew Jim didn’t like it when I teased Amber about their bedroom life. It just went along with what I know would annoy Jim, but it was wrong and I’m sorry. And guess what? If he does, more power to him — a healthy sex life is all about keeping it interesting. Watch my video on taking back that BITCH word here, and find out why I don’t put up with men talking down to a queen EVER.

          • I don’t believe a word Dina’s says. Sorry.

          • WestCoastFeed

            But it cannot be something just created by the twins to discredit Jim and Amber. Dina was talking about her insult at the first responder party

          • Dina could possibly have gotten the story from the twins. They were buddy buddy with Dina and LIVID with Amber. Who knows. I don’t trust anything Dina says.

          • WestCoastFeed

            There was what appeared to be a scene shot in Atlantic City in that pre season sneak preview where the wives were getting acquainted with each other. I think that was the scene where one of the newbies called Dina an ice princess. That’s supposedly where they all had a little too much and began the sexy talking.

          • Jennymckitty

            I agree. I didn’t remember this blog….thanks for pointing it out. It does tie the story together. I don’t think Dina would go out of her way to make this up Early in the season so the twins could get back at Jim….I don’t think that any are that clever and I don’t think Dina cares that much about the newbies. AC would have been more expensive to film than the regular scenes. It was the only group trip Tre took. We know there was drama (Amber’s FB posts). There has to be a reason that it wasn’t shown.

          • twifan2

            That ‘queen’ took her own self down by signing a pre-nup! 🙂

      • twifan2

        TMI! 😮

      • twifan2

        BUT this retaliation story won’t DIMINISH their mom’s indiscretion(s)! :/

        • BOOM!!!!!!!!

          • twifan2

            PLUS Zender in a strap….EEEEWWWWWWW

    • Jennymckitty

      Thanks, WCF. I have really wondered what happened to AC. I wish we could have seen some footage of it. I think it would have explained some of the drama at the first responder’s party.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Since Bravo included scenes from the AC trip when they aired that Sneak Peek, I guess we have to assume they changed their minds about what the story line was going to be this year. I remember one scene with Teresa and Mel high-fiving each other because they weren’t the ones fighting. And a scene where Dina told Melissa that Amber was gossiping about her behind her back.

        • Dina’s pot-stirring storyline is a total flop.

        • distressed

          This also happened on BH last season. A few scenes from the series super trailer were cut from the episodes that were aired.

          The scene in PR where Yolanda asks Brandi about someone blackmailing Kyle and Mauricio, probably Lisa, was cut. Then another scene of Kyle, Mauricio, Lisa and Ken walking away from the beach was magically never shown in that episode. Then the “checkmate, itch” scene from the finale was cut.

          Just another day at the office for Bravo.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Maybe they will show the AC trip when they air the lost footage scenes.

    • distressed

      Yes. Totally on top of that nastiness, good job. The piece I read also had a very telling clue about this being referred to in a previous episode. I have not been watching but that Dina comment is a dead give away.

  • WestCoastFeed

    OT. Bergen dot com has 53 pictures from Kathy’s book signing last night. Looks like a nice crowd showed up. As did Jac and Chris Laurita.

    • twifan2

      She seemed to have a very nice mix of people there. 🙂
      I wish her the best of luck!

  • Susie Whats Her Name

    I just read on ROL that the Guidice bankruptsy is closed. Wiping out the 13.5 million they owe. Tell me this is not true.

    • WestCoastFeed

      ROL has gotten that completely wrong before. I think the correct reading is that all those companies that the Juicys owe money to can now sue them for it.

      • Jennymckitty

        Oh good. I was hoping you would respond to this.

    • Hi Susie….the judge has not approved their discharge yet but I suspect the outcome is likely since they have zero assets.

      • WestCoastFeed

        These documents are the trustee’s request to be discharged from his job. I don’t see anything about discharging the Giudice’s debts. ROL has a link to the docs.

        • Right! Exactly.

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            The mortgages will remain on record and have to be paid off when and if they sell assuming the banks don’t start foreclosure proceedings (which will be likely if Teresa gets booted and loses the show income)

    • RonnieIsBack

      Their debt isn’t being discharged…the trustee’s involvement…

  • WestCoastFeed

    Jac Laurita will be back on next week’s episode. Bravo has revealed the news.

    • italiano bambino

      Sooo soon lol bravo is desperate.

    Hi doc

    Great interview but still think jim is a little bitch. Do I believe about the fake relationship? Yes you can tell.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hi, bambino. Yes, all the newbies are a pack of slugs.

      • italiano bambino

        Hi wcf.

        They trying to hard so far there storyline ain’t buying it.

    • Hey Bam! 🙂

      • italiano bambino

        Hi babe
        I got transfer to a different unit but wanted to give my support during lunch time 🙂

        • You da bomb! Are you happy about the transfer?

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hey bam!!!!!

  • italiano bambino

    So if they throw the mid season trailer that means Jersey is getting a short season n BAHAHA

    Zina success comeback lol

    • WestCoastFeed

      Looks like it is just going to be 4 more episodes, followed by the reunion shows the then the lost footage.
      Sunday, the plea deal and the discussion about the Gotti gossip.
      To come–the Florida trip–2 or 3 episodes there
      Then the Project LadyBug finale.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Jim has denied the AC story on twitter. Scoffing at the idea of suing over something his wife was rumored to have said. (That from a man who threatened to sue a blogger yesterday after he misunderstood what she wrote). He also tweeted that the AC trip was “weird too many fights.”

  • itsjustme

    He is such a freakin weasel! He and Amber “interviewed” women for the job and then told Bravo who to hire? What a trip he is. He is STILL acting as though he was in the dark about who he was going to have to film with and now is blaming Bobby for “making’ him film with J and T? I can’t believe this slimy, skunk. I get (in T’s voice) “skeeved out” when I see him…ICK!!!

    • K Coffey

      I thought the same thing when I read that about Jim insinuating he helped hire cast. Everything in the world revolves around all 4feet 9inches of him.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Piping hot tea…I am soo glad they pissed off Jim lolol

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    Bobby’s dad had some issues with the State of New Jersey

    Who is Jim Marchese to dole out legal advice he is not a licensed attorney. Call the NJ Bar association I did. NOT LICENSED. http://www.amazon.com/YSL-Touche-Eclat-Mascara-Radiant/dp/B000SGQWY4/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top?ie=UTF8. This guy is such a douche that will end up in jail himself.
