Jim and Amber Marchese School Twitter On Teresa Giudice: Her Prison Sentence Is Not A Tragedy!

Teresa Giudice has passed the one month mark of her 15-month prison sentence, and her beloved fans are adjusting to life without their reality hero. “Real Housewives of New Jersey” castmates, Jim and Amber Marchese recently took to Twitter to counter an annoying and misguided fan sentiment, and to throw some hard perspective into the mix.

Teresa Giudice left four daughters behind to pay her debt to society, which many on social media have labeled a “tragedy.” Four kids minus a mom is tragic, right? No way, says Jim and Amber Marchese. I would guess that the ripped off businesses, banks, individuals, and really anyone with a basic understanding of how fraud of this scale affects the economy, would agree 100%.

Social media has been peppered with sympathy garnering campaigns, and shameless publicity plugs to build the Giudice clan back up, hoping to float that boat of public compassion for just 12 more months. Teresa Giudice signed papers that implicated her in a case that proved that she is a fraud and a thief. She was convicted and sentenced to prison and will later be required to pay back what she pilfered. Far from a tragedy, Teresa’s butt plunked in the slammer is actually a righteous victory. Jim and Amber have recently been touched by the heartbreaking story of Kayla Mueller, a 26-year old American humanitarian worker, held captive and murdered by the Islamic militants of ISIS, in Syria. The Marcheses wish to bring attention to the story, and chose to grab the opportunity to put Teresa’s plight solidly in perspective.

Jim tweeted, “Next time I here you cry for Tre… think of this family. This is a tragedy. #Priorities #Fight4Right.”

Jim Marchese Twitter

Jim’s wife, Amber supported her husband’s sentiment when she responded to his tweet with, “This women is a hero. she is my hero. We need to honor her!!!”

Jim Marchese Twitter

Our hearts and prayers go out to the Mueller family. Teresa Giudice is guilty, cheated others, and will return home to her children in a year. Kayla Mueller was innocent, risked her life to help others, and will never return home. That is the definition of a tragedy.

  • italiano bambino

    The tre huggers must be having a breakdown lol

    • twifan2

      Good Morning Bam! 🙂
      Any time JimBooB takes up for a cause, you know he’s trying to get something out of it for himself!

      • MidwestMiddie

        In this particular case …….Let Him Roar!!!!
        He’s got this one right.

        • twifan2

          I just wish he’d just talk about that family. NOT use Tre to garnish attention. Which he knows will bring attention to himself, that family being second. 🙁

          • cait

            Ditto !

          • twifan2

            It’s been on the news for a while now, but since it’s JimBooB making a ‘statement’ it seems to bring more attention from reality tv viewers?! :/

          • WestCoastFeed

            It was a self-serving statement on his part. He wants us all to see what a wonderful caring person he is and what dolts the Teresa fans are.

          • twifan2

            Be prepared for more his antics to show up as the show starts filming. >(

        • Agreed!!!

        • Birdie

          YES!!

      • italiano bambino

        hi babe happy friday 😛

    • Yep! They are not happy with Jim because he’s speaking the honest truth. Her situation should never be compared to a tragedy.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Doc! And it’s about time someone told the truth!

      • italiano bambino

        those huggers are so fucking crazy

  • twifan2

    Can you say ‘self-righteous’ PR for himself!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Jim Marchese is a tragedy all by himself.

  • KUDOS! Jim is absolutely right. Trehuggers are out of touch and needed a reality check.

    • twifan2

      BUT coming JimBooB?! No thank you.
      He’s in it for the deflection of his past ‘good Samaritan’ deeds.

      • Bad Barbie

        What I find laughable is that the Tre Haters waste more time and energy day in and day out tweeting, commenting, and deciphering her life more than Trehuggers. LMAOOOOOOOOOO

        If y’all hate her so much why keep up with all things Tre?

        • twifan2

          This one’s about JimBooB trying to capitalize ‘fame’ off a tragic story-by way of using Tre to garnish attention.
          He’s pathetic! Just plain pathetic!

    • Birdie

      They desperately need perspective…it’s pretty pathetic that they can’t manage it on their own.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Agreed. The message is poignant and her fans needed to hear it.

  • I have been avoiding Teresa articles like the Plague, HOWEVER, I must say, in my opinion, this man who is obsessed with this woman. No matter what blog site I frequent, it can be this one, among various others, I see this man constantly referencing Teresa. Why? He claims he works with a prosecutor, but wasn’t he involved in some big time cancer scheme? In my opinion, defrauding people with a dire illness is just as bad as ripping off the American public for millions, so he’s not one to talk. He doesn’t talk about being married to Amber, he doesn’t talk about fatherhood, he isn’t even talking about his feud with Bobby any more. Every freaking time I see this man, Teresa’s name is coming off the tip of his lips. It’s Richie Wakile all over again. Trust and believe, if I on a personal level don’t like you, and if I don’t trust you, I damn sure won’t be talking about you. So, what is it, Rich, I mean Jim? I know you frequent this site because you’re obsessed with social media, but give it to me straight, no chaser, no ice, why do you talk about Teresa so much when you have your own sordid past? Let’s have a discussion.

    • twifan2

      Tell it, I Won Both of Em! 🙂

    • Bad Barbie

      Because he is hustling to renew that contract! “The modafacking Teresa show over here”- Melissa Gorga.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Someone needs to tell the mental midget how to read court documents and inform him that Teresa’s bankruptcy was DENIED.

    • twifan2

      Milania could read them to him after school! 🙂

    • MidwestMiddie

      No need. He states in his comment that she will be required to pay back
      what she stole.

      • WestCoastFeed

        You haven’t seen his tweets then where he claims that she only had to pay $7500 in the bankruptcy.

        • MidwestMiddie

          Apparently, he’s corrected his mistake.
          : )

          • twifan2

            After he was corrected by ‘non-lawyer’ people.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Oh, did he tweet a correction? Or just delete the ones that were wrong?

          • twifan2

            He probably did both,

          • MidwestMiddie

            So ?????

          • twifan2

            He can’t stand being ‘corrected’, so he takes twits off or IF they relevant to his post-he corrects it.
            😀

    • Bad Barbie

      How about the difference between “here” and “hear”.??

      • WestCoastFeed

        Or “your” and “you’re.” Or even, “to” and “too.”

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Oh Lawdy Barbie, don’t get me started.
        The 12 years of “Catholic school” in me goes crazy when I see stuff like that.
        ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`▭´)ノ︵ ┻━┻
        I just want to flip a table or two!
        (See I knew to use two, not to or too! )
        Catholic school!!! (•◡•) / LMBO!

        Education…

        The difference between knowing your chit!
        &
        Knowing you’re chit! LOL!

        Happy Friday BB. Have a great weekend.

  • twifan2

    After what JimBoob has done, it’s not possible to save face!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      With all due respect, for me, it’s the message that Jim and Amber are conveying. Kayla Mueller is the focus of the blog not Jim.

      • WestCoastFeed

        No, Jim has created this straw man just so that he could appear the big man who is knocking it down. He is every bit a part of the conversation here.

        • RealitytvJunkie

          I respectfully disagree. Put aside your personal hate for Jim and try to focus on the message. You seem to be losing sight and drowning in personal hate for a man you don’t know, if you know him personally, pardon me.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I see what he is trying to do here. He is the one who is cashing in on a genuine tragedy by pointing his finger at the Teresa fans.

          • twifan2

            EXACTLY, WCF! 🙂

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            West, I know you have an extreme dislike for Mr. Marchese. I am certainly not a fan of his myself. I do not feel he is a honest, moral, ethical or righteous man. (JMHO).
            While I can see your point, in the scheme of things, does it really matter who gets us talking about Kayla?
            This woman should be talked about, her legacy should be known. Her memory should be honored.
            If it gets one person to do one selfless act, isn’t that a good thing?
            Try to take the message as an attempt to do something good for this young woman & her family. While his motives may be self-serving, maybe leave that for another day & today we’ll all just celebrate the memory of this beautiful, compassionate, selfless woman. ( ◡́.◡̀)

            Hope you have a lovely weekend Hon. As always, all my best to you & yours.

          • Bad Barbie

            I agree with what you said. He should have kept it clean and focus on the real tragedy here.

          • Anne Green

            I wish I could up vote this 1000 times!!!!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Thank you, Anne. You know, I don’t think he is self-aware enough to recognize himself that this was another of his self-serving statements.

          • Anne Green

            Exactly. To tie a tragedy of this magnitude back to RHONJ is disgraceful and definitely self-serving.

          • Bad Barbie

            If Jim really had humble intentions, he could have delivered his message without mentioning Tre, her fans or her crimes. That simple. One thing has nothing to do with the other. He just wants retweets.

          • twifan2

            & for people to forget his past ‘indiscretions’.
            NOT going to happen!

          • Bad Barbie

            This guy is not going to be the person that will bring awareness or recognition to such serious subject. I mean, unless his fans are only inclined to watch Real Housewives shows for history lessons and current affairs updates.

        • cait

          He’s also a moral midget, who has no qualms about putting lives at risk, and all for the mighty $$$, then claiming Fed $$$ by snitching on the others !

        • twifan2

          He’s just trying to garner ‘support’, so he can be a ‘big man on the show.
          FameHoe!

          • WestCoastFeed

            That is EXACTLY what he is up to. Boy, I can’t believe people are falling for this.

          • twifan2

            Some are, WCF. smh over here.
            Even Chats can’t. Just can’t. :/

            http://mrwgifs.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Sleepy-Cat-Facepalm-Shake-My-Head-Reaction-Gif.gif

          • RealitytvJunkie

            Falling for what and is this a personal attack on me for expressing my opinion which differs from yours? Have I personally attacked you?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Please, I am not attacking you. I am astonished at people who don’t seem to get what Jim is up to here. His tweets are entirely self-serving.

          • Birdie

            Falling for what? Appreciating that someone/anyone is bringing attention to a truly deserving young woman and extending support to her family? I am falling for nothing, and the Marcheses are just the messengers, not the story.

          • WestCoastFeed

            They have made themselves the story here. They are placing themselves as being better than the tre fans by even bringing it up. This is self-glorifying for them.

          • Birdie

            I respectfully disagree…no matter how I feel about anyone’s screen persona, I focus on the message, and I believe this to be an important one.

          • Bad Barbie

            You do know that Jim in a criminal too, right? He just snitched to save himself. Doesn’t mean he didn’t affect hundreds of cancer patients.

          • twifan2

            Make that ‘thousands’ of cancer patients, their families, friends, doctors, nurses, the list goes on!

          • Birdie

            I wouldn’t care if Teresa herself tweeted about the truth of this tragedy.

          • Bad Barbie

            His message didn’t need to involve anything else. He has the maturity level of a 12yr old and wants to divert attention. Look at how 95% of these replies are not really about the real tragedy.

          • twifan2

            TY, exactly. If Apollo had tweeted this story, I don’t think it would have gotten as many bad posts-regarding the person who tweeted it.

          • Bad Barbie

            Wait… What do you mean if Apollo? Lost me there.
            Apollo would have been told to STFU that they don’t need him talking about serious national issues. That he is a criminal and guetto. Blah blah blah…

          • twifan2

            I would have taken Apollo more seriously than JimBooB, if he had tweeted the story.
            At least Apollo wouldn’t know enough world politics to compare his prison time to ISSI.
            Apollo would probably have just said ‘really sad about da gurl. Feels bads for her family’.

          • Bad Barbie

            I agree. Who really takes this guy serious anyway? His wife, that’s who.

      • twifan2

        & there’s where I have a problem with it. It’s JimBooB delivering the message! Apollo, NeNe, even Dina would have been better to get that poor family’s plight out. NOT some POC, in it for his own PR campaign to stay on a show.

      • Bad Barbie

        What is sad is that Jim uses national tragedies to tie it back to the show that he is dying to get renewed on.

  • cait

    Aaarrgghhh ! Shut The Feck Up Marcsleazy & your dozy wife, Damper ! At least the Tree didn’t try to kill anyone with dodgy cancer meds !

  • Birdie

    The Mueller story is so sad. Prayers to to this family. Rabid Tre fans need perspective.

    • twifan2

      It might of had a better response if JimBooB weren’t in the mix of it.
      He’s a rabid turn-off.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Twi! I just posted Jim may be a jerk, but he’s right on the money about Tre.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      I agree. I can’t imagine what her parents are going through. I’m thankful Jim and Amber highlighted the comparison.

      • Birdie

        Terrible. Good for the Marcheses to bring attention to this story, and highlight what defines a real hero.

        • RealitytvJunkie

          I’ve been tracking the Mueller story and it’s heart breaking.

          • Birdie

            I truly feel badly that I haven’t. It has deserved my attention, and this tragedy is indeed heartbreaking.

          • RealitytvJunkie

            I agree, Birdie. I’m truly enjoying your comments on this thread.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    I applaud Jim and Amber for speaking out about this. Her fans are shameless in their support of this fraud. Great article, BeachSpin.

    • Marsbars09

      So do I.

  • Dave

    Teresa fans suck. I’m glad you called this out for people to see. Thank you Jim and Amber. Bout time one of the RHONJ costars spoke up with the truth. No more pacifying liars and frauds.

    • Marsbars09

      Ditto!

    • Birdie

      Ditto!

    • MidwestMiddie

      The Ditto List continues to grow!!!!!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Agreed!

    • Ditto!!!!!! Boom!!!!!

  • Marsbars09

    Jim Marchese may be a self-centered jerk, but I’m with him on this one.
    Too many idiots have been supporting and “grieving” Tre’s plight. The plight which devastated small businesses, banks, and families. Tre is right where she belongs-prison!
    And Tre’s stans tend to forget she looks down on them. She would cheat and lie to them just like the businesses, banks, and people she scammed.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Great post. It is so hard to lose a child, let alone lose one in this manner. She was a giving soul with goodness in her heart. Her family can have comfort in knowing that the good deeds she did will live on forever. She was an angel on earth and now God has her in heaven. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

    • Hey Marsie! You summed it up beautifully. Hope you’re having a great day and ready for the weekend.

      • Marsbars09

        Thanks Doc! It’s absolutely gorgeous in Southern Cali today.
        I you too have a wonderful weekend.

  • MidwestMiddie

    Spot On!!!!

  • Birdie

    Kayla Mueller is the focus here…I would bet that the family appreciates Jim and Amber’s support and their motives to highlight what a true selfless hero their daughter was.

    • CNN

      She represents what is best in the United States of America. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

    • Bad Barbie

      You really think her family really follow these clowns?

      • Birdie

        I think any raised awareness is appreciated…anywhere.

        • twifan2

          It’s being covered by national, world wide news outlets.
          Reality show viewers should already be aware of this story. Unless, they are self-absorbed, in their own world types.

          • Birdie

            Of course it is…so why does it matter if any American touched by the story tweets about it…Jim and Amber have hearts after all…or maybe you don’t think so. 🙂

          • Bad Barbie

            Amber maybe. Jim fack him. He created wealth from a plan he help execute, then ratted out the company to collect the reward. Yeah. It doesn’t take a lot of heart to do that.

          • twifan2

            I think JimBooB is more about the attention, not the ‘heart’ of a story.
            I think you should ask the families of the cancer patients he victimized if he has a heart!

  • Bonita Gee

    I think that even Theresa fans know that she deserves to be locked up for her crimes. I don”t think anyone ever said she shouldn’t do time. Of course she should do time if she did the crime. But to compare her situation to a victim of ISIS …… Uuummmm……….. Eerrrrr……. I’m confused. We CAN NOT call what has happened Teresa’s family and children a tragedy, I don’t think any one ever has. It’s NOT a tragedy for Teresa or her family. Nor is it a tragedy for her to serve one year in prison.

    What is a tragedy is what happened to Kayla Mueller, but they are two totally DIFFERENT circumstances that cant’ be compared.

    • WestCoastFeed

      And while I have no fondness for the Teresa fans, I don’t remember them referring to her plight as a “tragedy.” You are right. The are two different thinks entirely.

    • Bad Barbie

      Jim is using this for retweets.

      • Bonita Gee

        RIGHT………. Thank you.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Well in this case, I say let him.The topic needs recognition.

        • Bonita Gee

          This story is getting RECOGNITION through out the world…. ISIS is getting news coverage and plenty of MEDIA coverage through out the world……. It’s get plenty of RECOGNITION without Jim Marchese’s TWO CENT INPUT & comparison to a reality TV show……… All in the name of him getting some lame ass RETWEETS. That’s basically what he’s doing.

        • Bad Barbie

          I agree. I guess it take Jim to reach out to all the fools that live in delusion and not aware of what is happening with foreign and domestic affairs. Sad shyte.

  • twifan2

    & here’s where I have a problem with it. It’s JimBooB delivering the message! Apollo, NeNe, even Dina would have been better to get that poor family’s plight out. NOT some POC, in it for his own PR campaign to stay on a show & try to cover his past exploitations of humanity!

  • Yolie

    While I’m no big Jim fan, I do agree with him 100% in this case. These animals consider women to be chattel, to be raped and degraded at the pleasure of the pig who owns them. Rest in peace Kayla, may God bless her soul.

  • CNN

    Thanks for blogging about this. Thank you Kayla for putting your whole life into making the world a better place. If only more of our young people grew up to be like Kayla.

  • twifan2

    This family’s story should be a separate piece.
    Their story should be told without JimBooB’s ‘presence’.

  • Bad Barbie

    Nobody will take his “LAW” career serious till he knows the difference between “here” & “hear’. So much for insulting others IQ level.

    Kayla is a hero and Jimbo doesn’t need to validate that for us.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Thank you, Bad Barbie. Agreed.

      • Bad Barbie

        People miss the point that Jim has wealth from scamming. Think about it. The money that he got for snitching, if it was most likely invested, he has profited with capital appreciation for hurting others. A lot of people seem to be totally fine with that. Double standards.

        Still, doesn’t mean that he can have an opinion and promote a good cause BUT when he ties it back to negativity, he has an agenda.

        • twifan2

          Oh I totally agree with you on this, Bad Barbie!
          He’s cause more harm/damage to people, their families, professional careers…

        • In all fairness, he was found not guilty and the judge said he wasn’t involved.

          • WestCoastFeed

            It wasn’t proved that he was involved is not the same as “not involved.”

          • twifan2

            So when he tried to pass Trisenox by the FDA as an effective medication, he wasn’t involved???

    • twifan2

      But it seems, he’s trying to have some her heroic status rub off on himself. :/

  • cait

    Out of respect for Kayla and her poor family, the comparison to Tree fans should NEVER have been made ! to see the words Jim + Truth + Honest in the same sentence is OxyMORONic to say the least

    • twifan2

      Yes!
      THANK YOU!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      As with every American soldier who has ever stepped foot on foreign soil to protect our country, Kayla put herself in harms way in order to help other human beings. This kind of sacrifice makes it all the more difficult to justify those who would tear this story down because Jim brought the topic to the reality TV world.

      • Fritz the. At

        I agree with you. Great post.

      • Birdie

        Exactly.

      • twifan2

        ‘because Jim brought the topic to the reality TV world.’
        This makes it sound like the ‘reality world’ isn’t an informed community. That reality world people are not informed persons. They don’t venture out into the real world. :/

      • Bad Barbie

        My condolences to the reality TV world viewers then.

      • EXACTLY! Excellent post!

  • Birdie

    Jim and Amber are known because of RHONJ…that is why people, including people who can’t stand them, follow them. They brought more attention to an important story of tragic heroism and used a common thread between they and their followers to share their thoughts…life perspective given to whoever is a positive thing.

    • twifan2

      No, JimBooB was ‘known’ in the medical, legal world for his ‘doings’ long before RHNJ.

  • Fritz the. At

    Wow. This guy generates so much hate that even when he is right and showing a bit of courage in the reality world, he is still attacked. I have no use for this guy but he is 100% right on this. I am sick of all of Teresa’s reality show clown buddies throwing symphathy and sadness over her prison stint. She had it coming and I don’t give a flip about her family feeling sad that she is away. She is a serial liar and criminal who will lie and cheat again. She has raised her brood to be as shallow and dishonest as she is. There are millions of kids who have parents serving is war zones and I save my symphathy for them.

    Let’s give jim a break here. Not only is he going to get the wrath of her fans, his reality peers but also from those of us who agree with his sentiment.

    Just saying and I know Doc will protect me.

    • Birdie

      Nailed it Fritz!! GREAT post!!

    • Bad Barbie

      Right here. Perfect example of out Jim’s comments beat the purpose. See what happens when rather than giving someone merit you use it yo bash others. Not once did you mention Kayla…. Just saying.

      • Fritz the. At

        How about I mention the 4 other Americans murdered by Isis over the last few months. Each are deserving of our thoughts right? Is her murder more horrible than the others? They are all a great tragedy. I don’t need to say it to make you feel better do I?

        • Birdie

          I completely understood the heart of your post…tragedies indeed, so sad.

          • Fritz the. At

            Thanks. There is so much heartache in this world and many tragic things happen to good people, people trying to make this world a better place. I save my prayers and symphathy for them, not for a dishonest reality clown who made a decision to steal millions so she could look wealthy and show off.

          • MidwestMiddie

            A Crooked Reality Clown!!!

    • BRAVO & WELL SAID! As usual SPOT ON! I like your plug about me having your back….ALWAYS baby! We go way back! 😉

      • Fritz the. At

        Yes ma’am.

    • Dave

      Yes, I agree with you. It also makes it difficult to justify using her death as the opportunity to bash Jim Marchese like some are doing on this post.

      • twifan2

        That’s it in a nutshell, Dave! 🙂

      • WestCoastFeed

        And, please, let’s not use her death as an opportunity to celebrate Jim Marchese. He’s the one who is trading on her story.

        • Dave

          You’re the one that can’t keep the man out your comments. Every time I come on this site, I see you keep Jim trending. So please my ass.

          • twifan2

            I didn’t see WCF bring up JimBooB over at the Tre Franchise thread, the Bobbie Kristina Brown thread?

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Dave everyone here has their opinions. You are allowed to have yours just like West is allowed to have hers.
            Please try to be polite & maybe just agree to disagree. Thanks.
            Have a happy weekend.

          • Dave

            I was being polite. Thanks.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Thanks Dave. I don’t want you, West or anyone for that matter to feel attacked, (except maybe the Tre-huggers, cause their just dumbazzes! LOL) or have the topic become personal.
            Appreciate it.

      • Fritz the. At

        He is using an example of a great tragedy that people should think about and feel badly about. He is slapping the teresa fans who really believe that her being in prison is a national tragedy. I don’t see anything wrong with what he said at all. I guess hatred sometimes runs so deep that there is nothing he could do that would satisfy some. I have no use for this guy but when he’s right, he’s right.

        • Dave

          That’s just it, the hatred for Jim is fogging their brains. I don’t know why some on this thread are diverting the focus to Jim. His message is deep and regardless how you feel about him, he’s right.

          • Marsbars09

            ITA. For once Jim is saying something worth listening to.

        • MidwestMiddie

          Agree!

    • Marsbars09

      I co-sign on your comment Fritz.

    • Chloe

      Right on! Ditto.

  • Bonita Gee

    This story is getting RECOGNITION through out the world…. ISIS is getting news coverage and plenty of MEDIA coverage through out the world……. It’s get plenty of RECOGNITION without Jim Marchese’s TWO CENT INPUT & comparison to a reality TV show…. All in the name of him getting some lame ass RETWEETS. That’s basically what he’s doing.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yes, it was a self-serving statement to begin with. The whole world is heart-broken over the Kayla Mueller story. This was just more arrogant condescension from Jim.

    • Bad Barbie

      I agree. Is he planning on giving recognition to the 3 muslin students murdered in NC? I mean, let’s see maybe he is trying to pay forward and redeem himself from the scammer that he is.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Thank you AAtT for blogging about this.

    (I am going to refrain for speaking my mind on what I feel the motives of Mr. Marchese’s tweet are & just speak on the message.)

    Thank you Kayla for being you. Thank you for trying to be a shining light in an otherwise all too dark world. Thank you for your compassion & your respect for human dignity. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Mueller for raising such a beautiful child into such a beautiful & selfless woman.

    Kayla, may you rest in peace. May your spirit soar with the angels. May your soul be free.

    • Hi my lovely brilliant Tiger! Your comment encapsulates the sentiment behind the blog. *clapping*

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Hi Seussie! Happy Friday! Hope you all have a fab weekend.
        Freezing my little irish butt off here! LOL!

    • Bad Barbie

      Great post. TL

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        TY.

  • Kat

    great story Beach Spin….I agree with the Marcheses’ It’s really disturbing to see some of these posts that cry out for tre but can’t recognize the real tradgedies and humanitarians of the world. Kayla and others like her risk their lives to protect lives of strangers while others like the Guidices go out and steal from others, not giving any though how it will affect the lives of the victims and their loved ones. oThank you Kayla!!!

  • twifan2

    Why didn’t JimBooB mention the fund set up for Kayla’s family?
    The money will go toward a fund her parents are setting up called Kayla’s Hands, which will help Syrian refugees.

  • Marsbars09

    Wow! Another hot topic. I turn my back for 5 minutes and there are over 150 comments.

  • Fritz the. At

    Imagine how this thread would light up if he mentioned “the cancer”. WhooWee!

    • Chloe

      Oh no, not “the cancer,” folks would lose it.

  • Chloe

    Outstanding blog, BeachSpin. Jim may be a lot of things but his message is right on. The Trehuggers are delusional to compare their idol’s criminality to a tragedy. Jim used a perfect example to demonstrate a true tragedy in the Kayla Mueller case. May she RIP.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Andy Cohen gave US Magazine an interview this past week. He didn’t reveal much except that there will be more RHONJ. What it will be and who will be cast members is still open.

    • twifan2

      & the insanity continues! 😀

      • WestCoastFeed

        There are casting calls out in the social media. I think I have seen 3 separate casting agencies asking for submissions.

        • twifan2

          Wonder if Chats should? :/
          Nope, he’d laugh in their faces! 🙂

          • cait

            But think how much scandal he’d bring to the show ! He would knock the Juiceys and Weasel Marcsleazy off the top Crim spot !
            Need to think of a nickname now !

          • twifan2

            The Chats-erizer?

          • cait

            Makes him sound like the Duracell energiser bunny !

          • twifan2

            That he is, cait! 😀

          • cait

            Geddit ! You know I up-vote all your comments, Twi ! The Chats threats and the picture of the Uzi convinced me that you and HE are the best posters in the world !

          • twifan2

            & you have now inflated Chats’ head 3x! 😀
            Dang cat! I can’t get him out the door now. :/

            CAIT! Have you seen that ‘new’ show Empire? It’s GOOD! 🙂

          • cait

            I’ll get TV mag 2mo and see if I can find it, cos shows over here are on diff channels to you ! As soon as Horseshoe appears, I AM SO GONE !

          • twifan2

            This is from the show.

          • cait

            WOW, that song was beaut ! Who played the dad, as his face looks familiar ?
            Horse-shit doesn’t stand a chance ! Kissing ground and thanking God !

          • twifan2

            Terrence Howard plays the dad.
            I can give you a link to watch it, if you want to see the 6 episodes so far.
            It has some great music, as you just heard. There are going to be some awesome performers on the show that will be making guest appearances too & singing on there.

          • cait

            Wasn’t he a DA in Law and Order LA

          • twifan2

            Deputy D.A. Jonah Dekker

          • twifan2

            My friend says that the mom character looks like a Diana Ross figure?!
            From what I looked up, she does.

  • TartLemon

    Teresa’s debt will not be paid with the prison sentence. She still owes the creditors from who she STOLE the $$$ MILLIONS.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Unfortunately they all have to go to court in order to collect. I wonder how many will just write off the loss rather than force her to pay through the courts?

      • I think MANY will, particularly since she’s on TV and a public figure. They can see her spending and flaunting her wealth, creditors won’t dismiss her as easily as they would an average Joe.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I hope you are right, but she no longer has the wealth. Well, she never really had it since it was all smoke and mirrors.

          • True. I bet she’ll still have checks rolling in wether it be a show or book deals. I would wager creditors are chomping at the bit to go after her. They won’t go away easily. She’s too well known.

          • twifan2

            They can go for her’s & Juicy’s paychecks from Bravo & other sources of income. Garnishment!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Will Bravo hire her for another season? Or would she even consider signing again with Bravo? I thought she was angling for another show on a different channel. Of course her pay can be garnished no matter who hires her.

          • twifan2

            She has no other offers that’ll give her the amount Bravo is paying her-not even close.
            Besides, even if she doesn’t sign with Bravo again-she’s still under contract with them for 2 yrs. UNLESS she goes to court to get out of it!? Bravo=NBC has the $$$ & the time to spend, she doesn’t.

          • WestCoastFeed

            But does Bravo still want her? Is there enough fan support to renew her again? Or is Jim right and the viewers have had enough of the felonious Giudices?

          • twifan2

            They might keep her on as a ‘friend’ to test the viewers, but she’s a has been-imo.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Unless she can show me genuine contrition and a sincere effort to repay, I never want to see her again.

          • twifan2

            Then it’s ‘bye bye Tre’! 🙂
            She’ll never do either! Unless she’s forced to-repay.

          • cait

            Taking this a bit personal, WCF ! She gets to kneel in front of you and make an “Act of Contrition” for you to forgive her ! Can we put this down to Valentine’s Day Syndrome !

          • WestCoastFeed

            Nope. I want her to lick my shoes and wear sackcloth and ashes.

          • cait

            You sexy fiend, you old dog !

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’m more Old Testament than 50 Shades, cait. Give me that vengeful Jehovah! He’s my kind of guy.
            Time for my news shows. Back later.

          • cait

            You watched too much of “50 Shades of Tree”

        • cait

          So they will leave Joe Juice alone !

      • TartLemon

        IRS, State and local taxes do not get written off EVER. Those are always owed. I don’t get how they can afford just the current expenses of the faux manse notwithstanding anything they still owe from the past.

        • Hey Tart. Good point! The feds don’t play and want their money.

        • WestCoastFeed

          That has me flummoxed, too, Tart. How are they paying the utility bills on that house. let along the taxes? Juicy must have some good money coming in from his rentals. The heating bill on the mansion must be horrendous.

          • twifan2

            My friend has a house over in Garden City-it’s not as large as Tre’s, but her heating bill is over $3K a month right now. 🙁

          • TartLemon

            Yeah, and that’s a necessary expense along with food, vehicles, insurance and taxes. Add to that the unnecessary cable, internet, phones and extracurricular activities. It may take several years to foreclose, but this other stuff must be kept current.

            Where does that $$ come from?

          • twifan2

            I was wondering if they all have Health insurance. Juicy might be a ‘high risk’ person. :/
            That alone will take a huge chunk!

            Who/WHAT is the ‘cash cow’ these days?!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Besides when they were putting Gia out trolling for dollars? I have no clue.

          • my sisters home in mn…$500 heat…..a month…. 2.8k sq feet…..regular home

          • i dont think they r paying any taxes, mortgages etc…. foreclosure is my opinion.

      • misstc

        My husband & I took this one jerk to small claims mediation for not paying a months worth of wages and won half of it. So we won, right? Wrong! This jerk never paid us a cent & we couldn’t get the court system to force him to pay us either. Just cause you win in small claims means absolutely nothing; all you can do is place a judgment against their credit report. Watching those TV court shows make me laugh & cry at the same time – cause the victims will NEVER see their money again.

  • She Stinks!

    He’s right. Rest in Peace Kayla.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Teresa’s PR team is at it again with a big puff piece given to E!. She is working out 3 times a day and is in the best shape in her life. Looks 10 years younger, partly because of her physical regimen and partly because she no longer has that pre-prison stress. Yada, yada, yada.

    • TartLemon

      Everytime I see one of these pieces of Teresa doing so well, can’t help but think one day those 4 girls will be able to put together what Mom is actually saying is she’s best when not around them. But, I also wonder why Teresa is making them believe prison is a spa.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Her PR guy laid it on way too thick with this last piece. I assume the source is James Leonard. But it could be someone else. Maybe that Robyn who was doing her Fabellini promo work.

        • sounds like robyn to me…..
          hey WCF glad 2 see u. im home now…..

    • I’m so happy Teresa is locked up behind bars and away from society. Her victims have suffered enough. Her and her lawyer/PR manager are both liars. Nobody does well in prison and nobody is happy to be there.

      • Marsbars09

        Thank you Doc. They really need to quit it and not report on Tre anymore.

      • imo every1 seems to forget that TRE is NOT the VICTIM.
        TRE hurt, victimized REAL PEOPLE

      • pss Seusseroo Loving Heart – are u Doc Seuss – aka HiSeuss from twitter? if not…welcome…im Chris….. love the name xxoo

    • italiano bambino

      SHE STILL A FELON!!!!!!!!

      • WestCoastFeed

        And not a felon who is being pampered at a salon.

        • italiano bambino

          got that right. they wana make it seem like this woman is having a blast. who they kidding she’s not tanning and using momma’s recepies and noone to scam so yep NOT HAVING FUN lol

      • and
        TRE can not vote or even use own guns…..so much for future rhonj filming TRE shooting the guns at the cabin – u know the place juicy told us tre gave up her V card….. ok… sorry…. way to much info…my apologies….

    • Marsbars09

      I’ll believe it when I see her.

    • im pretty sure its jim’s JOB to keep promoting rhonj since filming begins in april….what do u think?

  • colleen

    So many of I-SIS’ martyrs are humanitarians who leave their normal life’s to help the worn torn countries. Their payoff? Beheading etc. So Tre in a somewhat cushy federal prison, should shut the Huggers up. Amber and Jim are right. Tre doesn’t deserve a nanosecond of thought

  • Carmen Mitchell

    Apples and oranges. These two stories don’t even compare. Thes two famewhores just want people to think that they are focusing on serious issues when in fact all there trying to do is secure a place for the next season of New Jersey.

    Kayla Mueller was a heroic person who Teresa cannot compare with. The difference is Teresa is a thief and Kayla was a sweet innocent girl who risked her life for others.

    shame on you Jim and Amber. Your posting this article for all the wrong reasons.
