Jim Marchese Says #RHONJ Needs To Fire Teresa Giudice!

Posted on Feb 6 2015 - 11:23am by Editor

Jim Marchese

The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is scheduled to start filming in a few months and many fans of the show wonder what direction the show will take in season seven. One outspoken star of the show is voicing his opinions about an ethical issue that has plagued the show for years. Jim Marchese, weighed in to Confidenti@l, telling them “Bravo has a moral responsibility to fire star Teresa Giudice.”

READ: Jim Marchese Speaks: Says ‘RHONJ’ Will Carry On Without Teresa Giudice

Jim Marchese feels that after Teresa’s fraud conviction and subsequent prison stint that Bravo will be guilty of “glorifying” crime if it renews her contract. I agree!

“I don’t think she should be on the show any longer,” Marchese told us. “I think glorifying a felon’s life is counterproductive, and I don’t think it’s appropriate.”

Whether or not the Real Housewives of New Jersey survives without Teresa Giudice remains to be seen, but one thing seems certain, Bravo loves the drama and the attention from the felonious activities of the Giudices,

“By the same argument, I think we could have (imprisoned Ponzi schemer) Bernie Madoff on the show,” says Marchese, whose wife, Amber, is also a cast member. “He has good name recognition also, and he’s done things and I’m sure there would be some curiosity.”
“But (the show) is about families and dynamics. It isn’t about seeing how individuals can work our system, rip off the American people, not pay taxes and then live a lifestyle that pretty much no one I know has.”

Marchese was asked does the RHONJ have a moral responsibility to the Real Housewife of Danbury federal prison.

“I’m my opinion, yes,” he said, “Every other business model has a code of ethics.”

Jim has been busy supporting his wife, Amber Marchese, in her nutrition and lifestyle venture, “RevolutioniZe.”

“She’s even getting my old butt in shape,” says Marchese of Amber, who has a master’s in exercise physiology from Columbia University. “If she can get me in shape at 45, she can get anyone in shape.”

Amber has been keeping a low profile since the show wrapped, but it appears that she has been busy working on her new business concept behind the scenes. We wish her much success!

    Although I agree, this is pure comedy coming from Jim. LOL
    Didn’t he help set up a pharma-scam to then rat it out to the authorities to collect the reward? Oh, ok. SMH.

  • Fritz the. At

    Jim is 100% correct and I respect him for having the guts to say it. i am sick of all the other reality ho’s crying about poor teresa and sending her love and hugs without an ounce of symphathy for her victims. I really do believe bravo has cut ties with her and public pressure demanded it. She doesn’t have the fan base some think she has. Look at her business failures and the ratings of housewives. Go to famewhorgas and see the 180 degree turn there. Some people believed her lies but now it’s clear she is an unrepentant criminal. Her book won’t sell, no network will have her and she can do her cooking show on Glam. She is finished.

    • Bad Barbie

      I agree. It is just very rich coming from Jim.

    • AGREED!!

    • Dana

      She is now is doing the time. Once she is released from prison, she has paid her debt to society. Have a little compassion, she will need an income to support her four daughters.

      • WestCoastFeed

        She will still have 2 years of probation before her debt to society is paid. Then she will have the rest of her life to pay off the $13+ million to her creditors.

        • I1ST5XS

          Yep – and good luck collecting any of it. Every penny will have to be pried out of her greedy clutches. The only way any of the creditors will ever see a cent is if they have judgments to garnish her wages or are able seize assets. SMDH how anyone can support her disgusting ass!

      • Fritz the. At

        I have no compassion for a serial liar and thief, a person who refuses to take responsibility after stealing millions. She continues to lie, blame others and delude herself that she is in the 1%. She has already destroyed her kids by raising them to be materialistic and dishonest. If she wants to support her kids then she needs to learn a real skill, get a real job and stop whoring them out.

        • Dana

          All I know is I feel so bad for her girls. Yes, her and Joe did wrong but its so sad the girls have to go through this. Especially Gia during her teen years. This is a crucial time for her where she needs her mother. Glad Joe is filling in the gap.

          • Fritz the. At

            I feel compassion for children who lost parents to illness, serving their country or accidents. Teresa’s kids have a large, loving extended family. They lived all of their lives in the lap of luxery. Sure, their mom is in jail and the lesson they should learn is crime does not pay. As far as Gia goes, it is too late for her. She has already swallowed the get fame quick with no talent pill with her stupid girl group while shopping for a reality show of her own. Nobody in her world stresses education or hard work, just d list reality fame as a career so she too can live a lie of wealth.

          • misstc

            Very well said Fritz. Tre is now competing with Kris Kardashian to bring another generation of no talent, azz pimping heauxs.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            And what a fine example of fine American (oh wait, he isn’t legal), uh… not so American greed… he represents!
            And exactly WHAT did Teresa do in order to make life for her children to be secure during her incarceration? Oh yeah, she was suing her attorney’s, she was selling or attempting to sell her “products” and she was charging people “cash with no receipts” for some of her ghost written recipes. What a fahreekin’ joke!
            Go away Dana…you’re just as much of a joke!

      • TartLemon

        Going to prison is the punishment she is serving. It in no way pays her debt.

        • misstc

          Knowing Tre, she is learning other tools of deceit from her prison buds.

      • Newchild

        She may be serving her punishment, but her debt will never be repaid – not in her lifetime! The legacy she will leave to her children is beyond sad

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        You’re kidding right?!?
        Go scratch!

  • cait

    Dim Marcsleazy peddled unapproved Cancer drugs, putting many lives at risk, took his cut of the take, then ratted the others out ! Did not pass “GO”, Did not go to “JAIL” but collected $2m from the “BANK” ! How come this low-life think he’s the spokesman for the show ? He’s an irrelevant nobody !

    • twifan2

      Won’t watch that show for sure now!
      Can’t stand that murderous weasel! EVEN Chats can’t stand him!
      *good kitty-have a slice of salmon* 🙂

      • WestCoastFeed

        I can’t stand him, either. Even when I agree with him I still get this visceral reaction to him.

        • twifan2

          It’s your ‘self preservation’ kicking in, WCF. 🙂
          Can’t wait for the govt to throw his butt out to the curb, when they finish with him! 😀

        • twifan2

          I look for JimBooB to try & gain public approval by going up against Tre on the show. Kind of of how the tide is turning for Kyle on RHBH.
          Ain’t going to happen! He’s too much of a greedy, fame-hoe weasel.

    • Cindy

      Can anyone say “Napoleon” lol

  • I1ST5XS

    This is something that I can agree with him about.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Same.
      Imo, Bravo should have not renewed her contract after her
      first year on the show. Considering how she and her husband
      had filed an 11 million dollar bankruptcy back then and she
      had been filmed flashing rolls of cash, Bravo knew she
      was as crooked as crooks come.

      • I1ST5XS

        Yeah! Completely agree.

  • twifan2

    Just shut the show down!
    Worthless as he is! >(

  • italiano bambino

    he needs to leave the show as well. Even tho he was spilling the beans and having no filter he’s not worth watching.

    • twifan2

      Hi Hi Bam! 🙂
      He’s way too much into himself!

      • italiano bambino

        hi babe 🙂

  • WestCoastFeed

    He’s been on twitter all day, tweeting and retweeting. He is reveling in this.

    • twifan2

      Did you post something, WCF? A tweet?

      • WestCoastFeed

        No, I’m not on twitter, I just read his TL on tweet tunnel.

        • twifan2

          Oh ok. I thought you had posted a twit from him. Oops. 🙂

  • DLister

    Someone give him some BLK quick; dude is THIRSTY.

    • twifan2

      Where’s NayNay when she’s needed?! 🙂

      • WestCoastFeed

        84 tweets or retweets just since the story posted. Does he really have a job?

  • I love Jim, wise guy!! 🙂

    • WestCoastFeed

      A wise guy who thinks global warming is BS. IQ12

      • twifan2

        Can he act any dumber?
        OH WAIT! It’s JimBoob we speaking of….so YES!

      • Well, it’s just his opinion and I’m sure there are studies out there that would substantiate his claims. I disagree with him there but it’s his opinion.

        • WestCoastFeed

          There are no legitimate studies that would substantiate his claims. The man is a mental midget.

          • LOL…Jim passed the bar, he’s not a “mental midget.”

          • WestCoastFeed

            Lots of mental midgets pass the bar.

          • Touché 🙂

          • cait

            Thought I had read that he never passed the bar ! Probably permanently P*ssed, then !

          • WestCoastFeed

            Passed the exam but has not been admitted to the bar, pending clearance from the ethics committee.
            BTW he graduated from law school in 2001 but didn’t pass the bar until 2013.

          • cait

            Don’t you love ethics committees !

          • misstc

            If he doesn’t believe in climate change, I imagine he is a Republican who supports Christie?

          • WestCoastFeed

            I think he is to the right of Christie. More in the Rick Santorum group. Hence the sweater vest.

          • misstc

            LMAO – one of the delusional people who thinks he’s a one percenter?

          • WestCoastFeed

            And who brags that he got a Christmas card from Bill O’Reilly. And who retweets Sean Hannity?

          • misstc

            Yep, he’s one of those teabaggers who makes life for the less fortunate unbearable. I can see him chasing ambulances; quick talking shyster.

  • RoundAbout

    Frankly, I think it’s past time for Bravo to dump the whole cast and move it to another location or just lay it to the side like they did with DC and Miami. NJ was boring from Season 1 – Episode 1. It showed a brief flicker when Teresa flipped the table, but went right back to boring immediately after that. The cast and the producers always seem to be trying way too hard to manufacture excitement when they should leave it alone and let it happen of its own accord. If it won’t come naturally, it’s not worth watching….JMO

  • TartLemon

    I agree and have wondered for a long time why BRAVO insists on bankrolling these CONVICTED FELONS.

  • Dana

    Jim is one to talk. He’s in no position to judge Teresa.

    • WestCoastFeed

      He’s not a convicted felon. She is.

      • cait

        He should be !

        • twifan2

          Yep! Uh Huh! Yeah!

          • cait

            That reminds me of my late cousin, who spent her nun-hood in Co. Derry ! She would answer in the affirmative “Tis, Aye, Surely, Yes !”

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          In my opinion Dana ^^^^^^ should shut her trap and walk away as she counts her lucky stars… that we aren’t jumping her case with more strength and fervency.

      • Dana

        He gave bad drugs to cancer patients. That’s worst in my book.

        • twifan2

          Convict him then. :/

          • twifan2

            Can’t under Whistle Blower. >(

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          How about you talk to any single customer or individual that the Giudices cheated for the last 10 years but especially those whom were cheated of a safe and warm home during Super Storm Sandy!
          People like you make people like those of us who don’t agree with YOU, feel nauseous and just plain ill.

    • twifan2

      Yes he is. He’s just as sleazy as she is. 🙂

    • twifan2
    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      But Dana, you of all people, have an upfront and center position for correctly judging Teresa….
      That’s because you and Teresa and her swine husband share one very real trait…none of you are not very smart…. If any of you were actually smarter, you would have understood that what they and you are doing is to support people of depraved interests who have no compunctions whatsoever to take others for as much money as possible in order to line the pockets of the Giudices/Greedices!

  • misstc

    Maybe he is in no position to talk, but I agree with him about Tre. Even Wendy W on her hot topics yesterday said going to jail was the best thing for Tre’s career. She also said Tre is terrified that someone might find her diary to release as a book when she gets out. All I could do is shake my head coz all those people that were ripped off will never see a red cent the Fraudices ripped off of them. No, Bravo should NOT bring Tre back.

  • TartLemon

    Seems to me Teresa would be doing everything possible to encourage the franchise to resume filming. It’s the only well paying legitimate job she’s ever had. Once it’s gone, it’s GONE. The IRS, banks and other creditors will still be there.

    • twifan2

      Hope they all already there with their garnishments, property seizures, liens! 🙂

      • TartLemon

        Yeah. When will that happen?

        • WestCoastFeed

          One creditor did make the news. A laundry supply company has garnished her wages. They will get 10% of her salary until her debt to them is paid. I don’t remember the exact figure, something between $250K and $300K, I think.

          • misstc

            Laundry supply? That’s a lot of shmatas (rags in Polish) Is it 10 yrs of bed sheets? Just can’t imagine Tre doing laundry, let alone have t brains on how to fold a fitted sheet! LOL

          • WestCoastFeed

            Supplies for the Laundromat, I imagine washers and dryers. That’s in the same building as the pizzeria.

          • misstc

            Oh, not sending their laundry out, but to build a Laundromat? Didn’t know that.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            That debt alone will be intact for the rest of her given lifetime.

    • Dana

      People make mistakes, we’re human. God put us here to learn. We are all on a journey. Teresa is strong, God bless her, Joe and the girls. This too shall pass.

      • twifan2
      • TartLemon

        Just not “strong” enough to admit her mistakes and apologize to ME from who she stole $$$? I appreciate that you have an opinion, but I WANT MY MONEY BACK.

        • Bad Barbie

          LMAOOOOOOOOOOO

          Get in line.

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          Tart,
          Dana is just too damn ignorant…just like her idol…!
          I’m glad Dana comes here…if for no other reason than to substantiate our reasoning for dogging the nimrod dunce that Teresa and her followers daily show those of this world, who obviously have more than reasonable brain power… along with logic and common sense!
          Please bow your heads and pray… for those who are less able than those of us who ARE reasonable, logical and able to make sense of the truth.

      • Newchild

        But, sorry to say….her debt shall never pass.

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          Spot on!

      • MidwestMiddie

        Criminals, like Teresa and Joe, plan their crimes.
        Their crimes aren’t “Ooops, how did that happened?” situations.
        They planned each and every detail.
        The only mistake they made was getting caught.
        : )

        BTW – Teresa isn’t strong because a strong woman
        would NEVER put their children through this ordeal.
        She is a selfish greedy person.

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          You are being far too nice.

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        What can I say…Holy Crap…I just have to walk away from Dana… who is obviously just as challenged as her idol is.

  • Norrth

    Tehy should bring her back in 75% of her salary is going to the trustee to pay back some of her creditors. Isn’t she counting on appearances and products to make her wealthy?

    • TartLemon

      Why should BRAVO pay Teresa’s debts?

      • Bad Barbie

        I mean… doesn’t our employer pay for our debts and lifestyle?! LOL That was easy.

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        Too True!
        Unless one deserves the other because they covet each other’s notoriety winnings.

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      If one looks at the massive amount of money that she and her jerk husband owe to all of their creditors, the banks, the IRS, etc., the word “wealthy” has no place being uttered anywhere near the vicinity of Teresa or Joe Giudice/Greedice!

  • twifan2

    Too sad! NOT! 😀

    • italiano bambino

      OMG LMFAO!!!!!!!!

  • jane

    Marchese should know using the words “Bravo” and “moral responsibility” in the same sentence is a waste of breath. Bravo lost its’ moral compass a long time ago; well before his own 15 minutes of fame. If he’s such a fine and upstanding citizen and holds such high moral standards, then he should not appear on a network that has proven it thrives and is successful on showcasing and basing its line-up of shows on today’s society’s lack of morals.

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      Well and rightfully said!

  • September24

    Reality shows are littered with arrested people. Hence the real life of our neighbors. No big deal. Keep Tre or toss her. If she wants to be on tv she will find a channel to audition for.

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      And if those widgets hire her, their ratings will drop…after the Tre-Huggers rally around their felon which will clearly reveal themselves to be just as intellectually limited as their idol keeps proving herself to be, every time she opens her mouth.

  • It’s amazing how many people called Jim a liar then Bobby debuted his “Truth” video and proved Jim to be truthful.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I found Bobby’s video to be very truthful.

    • twifan2

      I didn’t call him a ‘liar’
      I call him a killer of people’s hopes, lives.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Agreed. I like Jim and Amber.

      • Thank you! Jim single handily saved RHONJ season 6. He’s pure entertainment.

        • Rochelle Barozzi

          He really is. He cracks me up!

  • say_no_go

    Go away little tiny man

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      Some of the littlest men have the…um…most abundant…um…uh… appendages…if you know what I’m alluding to here.

  • Sharon

    I agree. Fire Teresa. Then cancel the show. Can’t see anybody wanting to watch Amber, Jim, The Twins, Bobby, Reno, or Dina Manzo…so get rid of it.

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      Brilliant!

  • cait

    Should be run like Big Brother ! Every month the suffering public vote out whichever scuzz annoys them ! Then bring in the next idiots !

  • Dani-K

    Normally I think he’s a bully but what Jim says about this makes sense.

  • ChristianMotherofAte

    I don’t disagree with what Jim is saying, far from it, but with the whole ethical issues with his career in pharmaceuticals he is such a hypocrite. I don’t think he should be allowed on tv either. In any event, Teresa is more entertaining blinking with a glazed expression on her heavily sedated face than his napalm style vitriol.

    • cait

      Is it just me, or does he seem to bully his family in a sly, subtle way ?

      • ChristianMotherofAte

        Hmmm that’s interesting, I have to agree with you though, he never hesitated to make Amber’s RHONJ work life a living hell by diving into the gutter with HER castmastes. He considered himself to be a male RH, like Peter Thomas, and completely forgot that it was supposed to be an opportunity for Amber. So yeah, once I thought about it (my poor braincells) I have to agree with you.

        • cait

          Kiss-Kiss brain cells better !

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Dana and Teresa should kiss their brain cells…GOODBYE!

          • Chloe

            You can make your point without putting posters down. I don’t see Dana insulting you. It’s really unbecoming.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Well, I suppose you’re correct. However, I didn’t choose to, did I?
            Sometimes, the insults are residual reactions from a previous encounter. Or had you not thought of that?
            Sometimes what you see are rather innocuous comments that really aren’t very insulting (like what I wrote) as opposed to what you might see at another site.
            On another site, it’s commonplace to see retaliatory remarks laced with really insulting commentary words such as “mentally deranged”, calling the person rude labels such as “full of sh*t” or “b*tch, or “aunt with the first letter replaced with a “c”, or “f-ing mental case” or “f-er” or calling them a “pedo”, or saying that they think you’re “off your meds”, or that “you should get a job instead of being on-line 24/7 making stupid comments” etc.
            And these comments come from some fine upstanding citizen who knows me or you, like not at all. Need I say more?
            But, I must say, I thank you for your opinionated judgment call that perhaps wasn’t designed to get a reply from anybody, least of all me. I know that you obviously feel yourself entitled to “put me in my place” because your ego just likes the strokes you feel entitled to garner from, your self-bolstering commentary. Obviously, you are a far better a person than I am…just ask yourself how wonderful you felt those many hours ago when you were so encouraged and thus so inclined to leave your loving comment at my doorstep (sarcasm).
            Do drop by some other time in future, if you see me commenting again to someone… that you feel a need to stand up for or when you feel a need to again bolster your ego at my or anybody elses expense (sarcasm).
            Rrrrrrreeeeerrrrrfffffftttttt.
            And do enjoy your weekend.

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        Sly and subtle???
        I ask because I haven’t watched this fiasco of a show for at least 2+ seasons. From what people have said, I don’t think this guy has a molecule of “subtle” in him at all.
        But that opinion is based on the opinions of others who have commented on this pillar of his community (sarcasm on the “pillar” part).

  • cait

    Another fame whore ! Pimping out his kids in those awful adverts !

  • cait

    Petey Pie and Dimbo should have worn a frock and high heels to be a housewife ! They, both, clearly decided to be the main person on the show, ahead of the wifey !

  • BuckJohnson

    He has a point, but it won’t stop Bravo.

  • Dave

    Bravo is all about the money. As much sense as Jim is making, Bravo strives off of the unethical.

    • twifan2

      ‘Bravo strives off of the unethical.’
      Hence, you have JimBooB & what he does.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I guess Dave meant to type “thrives.” If so, that certainly fits Jim. Who else would brag about teaching his children to repay cruelty with cruelty. And maintain at the same time that he is a good Christian?

        • 900009

          i don’t understand your point

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          Bless YOUR sweet spirit West…but being a “good Christian” seems to be oxymoronic for the last, uh, 30 or more years.
          Pardon me please if I just pissed you off…that was not my intention.
          So Sorry….

      Corporations ARE about money ! They are not social counsellors ! The idiots who sign up are culpable for their own outcomes !

      • disqus_nx4MfF4kvy

        Exactly and if they weren’t about money they would be in violation of the only the reason they exist, to make money and as long as the corporation isn’t breaking the law they are doing exactly what’s expected of them.

        • dj j

          which is very scary as republican states are busy “privatizing” our schools, prisons, military, and post office. People who live in rural areas will have to pay 1 dollar to mail a letter, and if ou want a good education for your kid, you had better pay up.

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        Say Whaaaaaat! YOU are so blasted “Exactly Right”…you’re Brilliant!

    • I agree, Dave! Bravo goes out and recruit criminals to be on their shows.

      He’s just ‘looking for attention’, TGIP.
      Another fame-hoe. :/

        Sometimes opening up your mouth just gets you more grief than you can even begin to imagine.
        Hence, the reason why I just deleted like 2/3rds of my last comment to West…it was just a smarter thing to do.

    This article made me laugh. Jim thinks he is a housewife. My problem he lives in a glass house. Why doesn’t he answer why his mortgage company cannot write in Washington State, answer ripping people off.

    Just read, in an old article, That Marcsleazy, fraudulently, managed to list unapproved drug in a medical mag in order to defraud Medicare ! He even sent an e-mail to his boss boasting about how clever he was ! This was taking money from an organisation helping many of your citizens, leaving less in the pot to help others !

    A very old insult is apropos here: Jim is an eater of broken meats.

    I don’t like when people try and taking jobs away from people.

    Andy’s response was that no one reads the Daily News anyway.

      And Teresa Giudice should be thrown down at the right angle of the gutter curb with force by Bravo.
      If Bravo can’t do that, then their fate should be the gutter curb action with even greater force but with a little bit of finesse.

    Cheesey Marcsleazy is repulsive and seeing his fissog makes me want to “UPCHUCK!”
    What became of those spurious contracts he had with other members of the cast, when he became a CEO at Bravo ! HaHaHa ! Delusional Prat !

      I get the same visceral reaction to him, cait. I think the majority of viewers feel the same way we do. He has probably destroyed any chance Amber ever had of being renewed for another season.
