Real Housewife of New Jersey Amber Marchese: Teresa Giudice Preparing For prison

Posted on Dec 22 2014 - 12:16pm by Dani-K

amber-marchese RHONJ

On last season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” there was an influx of new “ladies” on the show. Amber Marchese was one of them; however, her husband Jim brought even more drama than the three new women combined. Amber sat down for an interview with Fox 411 and dished on her “wild ride” on season 6 of the RHONJ.

Many have wondered, Jim being such a polarizing figure, did being on the show hurt his business? According to Amber, “No, it hasn’t hurt his business whatsoever. Actually his business is doing very well. Thank God.”

 

She said that at first Jim didn’t want to get involved and saw his role as the annoying loving and supportive husband/father. Amber continued, “He was like, I can’t be half pregnant, so now I’m involved. Then he saw how everyone was really coming at me, and he could just not (sit) by idle without helping me, and he really did come to my defense and stand by my side. My husband was my alliance.”

As previously reported, Jim Marchese made $8.5 million in 2014. Amber also spoke about Teresa Giudice, has Amber spoken to her? “I saw her at the reunion, and I do talk to her via text once in a while. I really reach out just to say ‘Hey, how are you? Just thinking of you. Hoping you’re ok and everyone is doing alright.’ She’s doing what any mother would be doing. She’s basically shutting the world out and concentrating on her children. I commend her for that. I mean what else are you going to do? (Go to a Broadway musical?) She’s doing what needs to be done.”

The question remains, would Amber return to another season if she were asked? “A lot of rumors. A lot of talk but nothing is set in stone. Nothing. Even on my end, I haven’t heard anything. They’re not keeping me in the loop I think by design but once I get that phone call if they want me back, we’ll deal with it then but until then I kind of live my life. I’m happy.”

Tell us what you think. Would you like to see another season of Amber and Jim?

  • She Stinks!

    Gee Ambuh, doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out, since Tre has to surrender in 13 days, I guess she is getting ready.

    I can’t stand her or her rat faced husband. Both are trash. Next!

    • Marsbars09

      Ditto!

  • Beautiful pic of Amber above. Jim scored with his current wife!

  • Tre’s Going to Prison

    I wonder if Teresa will delay the check in, like Apollo (Duh-pollo) did. Just to put off the initial agony of defeat.
    Maybe we could all pitch in a few pennies and send an English speaking and writing set of audio books for her to study…so she has the opportunity of maybe gaining some semblance of intelligence while she’s “gone away”.

    • WestCoastFeed

      There’s a rumor that she might just turn herself in a day or two early in order to escape the cameras showing the humiliation of incarceration.

      • Tre’s Going to Prison

        That would be a smart thing to do, for sure.

        • WestCoastFeed

          And it would save her daughters humiliation, too. I hope she does it.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Did you really say “pitch in a few pennies”?????? (You know how Tre LOVES those pennies!!!

      • Tre’s Going to Prison

        Especially when she’s hiding in the “head”.

  • WestCoastFeed

    What a relief to know for sure that they haven’t been signed to a new contract yet. There is some good news today.

  • Dave

    Good interview Amber. 13 more days to “D” day. I can’t wait. I hope Amber and Jim come back next season, Jim’s big mouth made a boring season exciting.

  • Karma

    Jm is rea lly an ann”ocan’t but he b ringmy tine the drama & he’s no t scar ed to sa y i.
    t how he sees she it I ‘ve com e to like the little guy. Amber is sweet the twins are feral get especi.

    all ty Teressah.

    I’m glad Tre is taking so much time spending it with her family instead of book signing etc she’d be crucified if she did Wow I really can’t believe it’s only a matter of days before she hands herself in

    I truly hope she Really does learn a lesson that crime does not pay & you’ll always caught

    I truly believe that when she comes out she’ll definitely be in demand every network will want the scoop but Bravo has first dibs.

    I also believe she will make it again on another reality show and write a few more books first one “my time on the inside.

    I believe in giving people second chances I also realize that Tre & Joe have been committing fraud for almost ten years

    • Tre’s Going to Prison

      You’re nice.
      Nice, right about now is a very good thing!

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I’m such a bitch. I told her the truth! I can’t help it!

        • Tre’s Going to Prison

          Join the club…there’s lots of us trying to fit inside that boat. It’s better to be inside the boat, instead of out in the water doing the dog paddle.

    • Marsbars09

      Karma, Tre might not be in as demand as you think due to the items that were confiscated from her house last week.
      Tre proved once again what a lying criminal she is.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Bingo. She’s going to get more time. That’s what the cards say.

      • I now think she’s done. Career is over, she’s finished!!

        • Tre’s Going to Prison

          Stick a fork in it…oh yeah…she’s cooked.

        • Karma

          IDK maybe not stranger things have happened just sayin

      • Karma

        That was very disappointing but t.he press thrive on stories like hers they’ll definitely bring up the raid that’s what I mean when I say she’ll be in demand I think every news or entertainment show would want to interview her

        • Marsbars09

          That may be the case, but as far as anyone offering her a big pay day that won’t happen. No one is going to hire someone that was caught red-handed with expensive goods and cash they weren’t supposed to have.

          • Karma

            I certainly wouldn’t but there are people that just might who knows and if she hasn’t learned her lesson well to bad for those who hired her knowing her past

      • Hotdog21

        Still sticking to that story even though there is not one shred of truth?

        • Marsbars09

          What are you talking about?

        • Do you have proof that it didn’t happen cause Teresa ran out and hired a lawyer and went dark on social media since the day of the raid.

          • Hotdog21

            From the New Jersey Star Ledger. This is the main newspaper for NJ not ROL or Starcasm or E! or TMZ or any other entertainment/blog site.

          • Firstly, no one reads the Star Ledger anymore. NJ. com is considered a struggling blog and the story indicates the feds said they did not conduct a raid. No where in that article does it state a raid did NOT happen. That is a point of contention.

          • Hotdog21

            UPDATE: James J. Leonard, a lawyer recently retained by Teresa to deal with outstanding issues from the plea bargain, including the restitution, calls the story “a completely fabrication” and says that Teresa is “complying 100 percent” with the U.S. Attorney’s Office to satisfy the restitution.

            “I can tell you with absolute certainty there was no raid and there was no assets seized,” Leonard says. “Santa Claus coming down the chimney is more believable than the raid story.”

            ———

            Reports that federal agents raided the Montville Township home of Teresa and Joe Giudice and seized Christmas presents, plasma televisions, jewelry and stashes of hidden cash are not true, according to a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office that prosecuted the couple for bankruptcy, mail and wire fraud.

            The Star-Ledger remains New Jersey’s largest daily newspaper, with a print circulation of 167,600 and 265,500 on Sunday, not including digital circulation, which boosts that to 285,200 daily and 369,700, based on audited numbers for the six-month period ending September 2013.

      She hasn’t learned a thing. She’s unteachable. That’s how it is when you are sociopath, a liar, and an entitled narcissist.

      • Yes ma’am….kindly add plum dumb to that list!

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Oh yeah–that too. Only plum dumb is far too kind. A cretinous moron is better. 🙂

          • Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha!!!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            But “plum dumb” has such a cool ring to it…don’t cha think?

      • Karma

        I understand what you mean I’m HOPING she’ll learn from this just wishful thinking on my part I suppose

  • colleen

    I really like Amber but either she’s kidding herself or doesn’t want to diss Tre ( probably the later). Tre doesn’t give a flying F about Amber. Who knows what quality time does she spend with kids? Writing dumb letters to the Judge, lawyer shopping, raids and filing law suits are filling her days

    • Marsbars09

      I was thinking the same thing. I don’t think Tre is the loving, caring mother she’s constantly proclaiming to be.

      • Tre’s Going to Prison

        I see your point and raise you a couple of chips.
        How does one measure a “good mother” or father for that matter?
        Is it in the kids that are fine upstanding citizens or is it in the kids who keep messing up, cuz I’ve seen both come from the same parentage in one family. Is it in what your kid says about you in how you raised them in spite of them behaving on either end of the stick?
        Rock on people…you do the best you can within the parameters of the circumstances you have to deal with and then you let them fly on their own…I think (with some help if needed to a point, of course).

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Tre’s! I was referring to Tre’s situation. All I know, and so do a whole lot of other folks, is that Tre is a horrible example to her daughters. She ruined their childhood due to her insatiable greed. That is not what a great mother makes.

    • misstc

      I think she is setting her girl Gia up to make money while mommy goes to prison. Sad!

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Haha. She’s REALLY stupid if she thinks Gia’s no talent little band is going to do anything but get disses on youtube.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Jim Marchese claimed at the reunion that he earned 8.5 million last year. The news reports I have read are saying that his company, Mortgage Now, was awarded the whistle blower award, not him personally. Since he is the CEO of the company, he will probably get a sizable bonus for the work he did on the case, at least one would think so.

  • Marsbars09

    Bravo, please don’t bring those fools back. Allow them to enjoy their millions.

  • Jennymckitty

    I would rather eat glass than watch them for another season. I don’t find a man injecting himself in women’s fights entertaining.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Or who teaches his children to return cruelty for cruelty. He has a very strange take on the Golden Rule.

    • Tre’s Going to Prison

      If the guy wants to keep his private parts intact (figuratively and actually), it certainly would be better if he didn’t get between women fighting. That’s just my unfettered opinion.

  • misstc

    I say keep the Marcheses, dump the twins who lack any refinement, and Dina. Find some new fresh blood that has some class.

    • DLister

      But the types of women who would scratch their own mothers’ eyes out to be on this show wouldn’t know “class” if it knocked them down and pounded them into the dirt.

  • Susie Whats Her Name

    Amber doesn’t even really know Teresa enough to be reporting about anything.
    She just wants the attention.

    • chacha1

      also there is something about Ambers nose ….. she kind of looks like Mrs. Potato Head

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        That is a long nose…but I still think she is pretty, not drop dead gorg, but pretty.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Well, they did ask her about T. She is just answering. As much as she could. 😀

  • DLister

    Uh, “was thrusted?” This “interviewer” is a real bimbo.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    I haven’t watched this show for so long–I have no idea who these people are. I’ve only kept up with the convicted felon’s part in this pig of reality television show. Time to put it to rest. Oink, oink, oink–all the way to its grave.

  • DLister

    Off topic — to Dani-K — your love and passion for reading and writing shows. Congrats on your novels and I wish for you an even more amazing 2015! BTW, I adore Stephen King too! 🙂

    • Dani-K

      Thanks!!! Happy holidays to you!

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    Bravo would be idiots to cut Amber & Jim…so what, the guy stood up for his wife, my man would have done the same!! The twins were useless, including the long lost triplet Bobby…no more Kathy PLEASE!! Jac, I’m undecided…and Dina can get da steppin << * in my Martin voice*

    • BOOM! I agree with the exception of Kathy. I heart Kathy.

      • chacha1

        and I love Kathys children

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        I do too

  • Brattus Rattus

    I liked her from the beginning. I wasn’t sure about him. But you know what… I respect him. He tells the truth. He didn’t run to the bathroom and lock himself away when things got deep. He stood his ground. He stood up for his wife. He never called her names. Like the rest of the men. Joey and Joe were the worse. He had the goods on ALL of them when they were throwing their HUGE boulders in their glass houses and he took them down a few notches. I can’t be mad at that. I work in a 98% male dominated workforce so I have to play at the men’s level too, and believe me when I tell you, men gossip way worse than women ever thought about.
    CAN’T stand the twins. AT ALL. I feel for Jac but she cries too much and it turns into a segment for Autism. It’s a horrible thing, please don’t misunderstand, but I don’t want to see tears and learn about Autism on that show. Dina is not all about light and that BS. She want’s to be but it’s a front. LOL She picks and chooses when to use that card. Kathy wouldn’t be so bad if she got rid of that PIG of a husband, Rich.
    Meh. What does it matter, in all reality, once Teresa goes to the pokey the show is going to suck whether you like her or hate her, she made that show funny…flippin tables and shit. LOL

  • chacha1

    ….I wonder if Teresa will yell out when she is in prison “I’M FROM PATTERSON” like she did to try and scare Danielle at the Fashion Show in Season 1 …… and where is her BFF Lizard Faced Kim D who says she runs with the ‘big boys’ hahahahahaaaaaaaa, maybe, but when you run with the big boys you do not brag/talk about it on National TV …loose lips sink ships

    • That’s right Chacha……REAL gangsters move in silence.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      LOl, right? I was like, “so? You are from Patterson?”

  • WestCoastFeed

    Will wonders never cease? Jim Marchese actually almost apologized to someone on twitter today. He told someone he was sorry IF he had offended her. Not that he was sorry THAT he had offended her. But, I guess, it was a baby step for him. I can’t except a worm like Jim to turn very fast.

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    I actually like them both. My husband would not stand by and let those harpies come at me w/o stating how he felt. And forget about a chick laying their hands on me?? fuggettaboutit!
