Rumor Control: Jim Marchese Accused of Neglecting His Injured Child & Jim Responds!

Posted on Nov 4 2014 - 5:02pm by BeachSpin

Jim Marchese has established himself as the most controversial, polarizing, and colorful character of this season’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Love him or hate him, there is little doubt that his scathing honesty played a huge part in breathing life back into a dying franchise with gutter level ratings. He proudly presents himself as a protector and defender of his wife Amber, their children, and the hard truth.

This claim was called into question today on Twitter when he was accused of neglecting his son Vinny, who was apparently being treated at a hospital for a head injury over the weekend.

The only problem with this accusation, is that Jim Marchese is NOT the father of any boy named Vinny! A little digging revealed that the tweet was posted by a Facebook friend of his ex-wife. The Tweeter noticed the tidbit on Jim’s ex-wife’s Facebook page and decided that Jim should have had his butt in the hospital with the obviously injured Vinny. I wonder if Vinny’s mom watches the show…Jim fan or no? I gotta know!

All About The Tea reached out to Jim for a statement, and he responded with his characteristic flair for words.

“I have NOT fathered a child named Vinny. That child is NOT mine. Nevertheless, I believe every child should be loved, educated, and given proper medical care.”

To further clarify, he responded to the Tweeter directly, just a short while ago.

Jim Vinny

Maybe Vinny’s mom is a Jim superfan, and wants her own ‘gentle lion’ to help her through the tough times. Trying to peg Jim as a neglectful dad of a child that isn’t his is a bit of a stretch, but with his looming and seemingly epic reunion appearance only a few days away, maybe the gloves are off to pollute his protective dreamboat image. I know in my heart that Jim would have been by Vinny’s side if only he had known! I think that I can speak for Jim, Amber, and their entire family in extending the warmest and most sincere wishes for Vinny’s speedy recovery.

From all of us at All About The Tea…get well soon Vinny!!

    That’s a damn shame that this picture was even posted and to top it off it’s not even Jim’s child! Just how far will people go? I’m not a fan of Jim but this is ridiculous

    • DLister

      I just have to tell you how much I love your name! I crack up every time I see it!

  • Bravo Changed

    People will go to great lengths to make Jim look bad. He lost a best friend, was threatened, ridiculed and ostricized this entire season for what…for speaking the truth about a felon family who steals from the poor, middle class and government. They have no limit when it comes to who they target. Go Jim.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    It’s really sad that we live in a world where people will use lies to try and destroy another. I’m glad Jim called out the tweeter. She was dead wrong and even if it was Jim’s kid why post something like that.

  • Birdie11

    It is beyond me as to why any parent would post a picture of an injury…like look, my kid is hurt…yuck. To call someone out as a bad parent on social media is beyond tacky.

  • JustJill

    They picked the wrong #HouseHusband to mess with! Jim will hunt you down, get your personal information, file a lawsuit, and make you his bitch. That was really stupid and possible child endangerment, fraud, slander, etc….

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Great comment. They deserve it. She should not have tweeted that mess.

    • DLister

      Ha! This comment is so funny!

  • prycer

    Billy Jean Is Not My Lover…Was the song that popped in my head while reading this article. LOL

  • Bathroom Bobby

    It’s really sad that anyone would tweet a pic of a child with an injury but even worse when you call someone a bad parent and it’s not even their child

  • colleen

    You don’t know how much I appreciate your Headline was a TEASE! Thanks, AATT


    I can’t stand Jim but that is stalker weird!!

  • SDC

    She should change her name to Sexy, Sassy and Stupid

  • This is the clasiest bloop I’ve ever read. Beach Spin….love ya, baby!

  • TopGear

    I’m still on the fence about Jim but love or hate him, this is plain wrong. The ex or her friend owe Jim an apology.

    • Rebecca Grande

      I don’t owe anyone an apology, me, my son and my husband are owed a big one. Someone went into my Facebook account, took a photo that I shared with my friends and then posted it on twitter to make Jim look bad. We don’t have anything to do with the show and don’t deserve to have our son exploited like that. The whole hospital comment was a lie, the fact that he is Jim’s son is a lie and anyone saying I had anything to do with it is ignorant.

  • Mortgage Fraud

    This article was written under the pretense that Jim is doing DAMAGE control I think Jim is trying to stay RELEVANT I don’t think he really cares about the hateful tweets he gets HE cherry picked this one LMAO

    • RealitytvJunkie

      This comment doesn’t make sense. Can you clarify?

    • Damage control of what? The child is not his and he states the truth in his statement.

    • Birdie11

      Huh? He is responding to a nonsensical accusation challenging him as a father…it’s a bit past hateful. It’s also dragging an innocent kid into the rumor…I don’t see this as cherry picked at all.

    • Rebecca Grande

      You are continuing a story where MY son was exploited by people who hate Jim. To say that he used this story to stay relevant is ridiculous

      • Bathroom Bobby

        Why would Jim want or need to use this to stay relevant when that crew of people spend 24/7 making him relevant?

  • DLister

    Proves that people no longer care to really read for accuracy or comprehension. The lengths some reality fans will go is beyond disgusting. Regardless if you like Jim or not, he doesn’t need this slanderous sh*t.

    • Good morning! Well said. Exactly!!

      • DLister

        Thank you so much. It’s as though these rabid fans have no sense of boundaries and absolutely no dignity. It’s one thing to enjoy a bit of a snarkfest on a blog site like this, with camaraderie and a touch of whimsy, but it’s another thing altogether to get on social media and launch a direct attack just to be noticed.
        I admit, I enjoy making funny, snarky comments on here about quite a few of these folks; and if I ever meet any (the twins, Marcheses and Ciausulli all live in the neighboring town), I would most certainly give them the respect of personal space and the ability to just be themselves. Because that’s real life and I respect that.

        • Poignant and succinct! Thank you for blessing us with your wisdom. I wish the rabid haters could read this and allow it to SINK in.

  • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

    Oh FFS! If you’re gonna dog the guy & attempt to shame him or humiliate him about being a bad parent at least get your shit right!
    Not even his kid?
    What an asshat!

  • Get out

    As I read it, I thought he doesn’t have a boy named Vinny. Poor Vinny, that look’s like an Ouchie!!!

  • ZammyB

    This is why I love Jim! He has no problem putting anyone in their place!

    • Chloe

      AGREED! IMO he’s the most honest and sincere of the husbands.

  • shayvoe

    That is hysterical!

    • Chloe

      I must admit I laughed too. You can’t make this stuff up.

  • Chloe

    The Tweeter that posted the pic is still ranting on Twitter that this is Jim’s child.

    • OMFG!! She must be off her meds! There’s no other explanation for her illness.

    • TopGear

      No way. So in her mind no matter how much this is not Jim’s child, she’s going to find a reason to pin this one on Jim too. This is the most bizarre behavior.

    • Birdie11

      She must WANT to be made Jim’s bitch!!!

      • Chloe

        She’s stupid and is exposing herself to a lawsuit. Jim doesn’t play around when it comes to discrediting him.

        • Bathroom Bobby

          Rebecca tweeted today this is NOT Jim’s child and the person that tweeted the photo first I tweeted the SS to Rebecca because that’s where it started not on this blog

  • RonnieIsBack

    See THIS is why I LOVE JIM. Don’t come for him unless he send for you. Folks just want to toss chit on the wall to see if it stick. she got her attention..and I hope due to HIPAA violations her azz gets sued and she loses her job for realz if she is a hospital employee. Just dumb…so very very dumb….

  • Rebecca Grande

    Take the photo of my son off your web site

    • AATT take it down. Jim’s ex looks like she crush beer cans with her forehead. YIKES!!

      • Bathroom Bobby

        SMASH SMASH SMASH! lol

        • SLAM. SLAM.SLAM!! The bish is scary!!!!

          • Bathroom Bobby

            She really needs to learn what please means. I understand she’s upset but manners are everything when making a request

          • Absolutely! Because the blog is not legally obligated to take the photo down.

          • Bathroom Bobby

            Not at all and the blog done it as a favor not a requirement

  • Bathroom Bobby

    The pic of this child was taken off the mother’s facebook and tweeted for the world to see and not by this blogger. Kids should never be used in hate campaign’s

    • AGREED. Well said. The person that tweeted the photo “Sexy & Sassy” took it from Rebecca’s Facebook and shared it on Twitter.

      • Bathroom Bobby

        And I sent the SS to Rebecca and Sexy and Sassy today when Rebecca came after this blog

        • Good job! I saw Sexy and Sassy trying to back peddle by trying to blame the blog.

          • Bathroom Bobby

            If you look at my TL on twitter there is a long convo between the 3 of us. If people put a pic out and swear for days it’s Jim’s child then they will take responsibility via SS

          • Thank God for screen shots! I will take a look now.

  • Bathroom Bobby

    Please is a wonderful thing manners will get you everywhere
