After looking like a s#*!-stirring suck-up on this week’s episode, with her husband saying he’s not allowed to hang out with the Juicys because of their legal issues, Amber is trying to set the story straight.
“Neither Jim nor I have ever been judgmental of Joe and Teresa [Giudice]. At this point, we hadn’t even met Joe Giudice, and had only met Teresa once at our party. We knew of their situation, but still opened the invitation to them without regret,” Amber begins.

And then Amber tackles Melissa Gorga and the terrible twins: Teresssssa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano – and she blames Melissa for causing all the drama. “Melissa asked me in the car how the marriage ended for Nicole. LET ME REPEAT THAT: MELISSA ASKED ME WHAT HAPPENED TO NICOLE’S MARRIAGE. I did not offer this information to her. I told her what others have repeatedly told to me.”
“The account I told came to me from the family that Nicole allegedly did this to. I never had this conversation with Nicole. For the record, Nicole and I were never best friends, we knew one another in town, but got closer when Bobby started to date her,” Amber continues. “Te-RESSA and I never got that close; I was always more distanced from her. I felt like she had a lot of negative energy.”
Of course Amber says she had been warned about Melissa’s devious ways. Haven’t we all! “I did let Melissa know that I wasn’t certain whether this story was true or not. Melissa just met these girls only once at my party, yet she could barely even wait until the car was parked before running to the twins and mischaracterizing what I had said. Melissa knew exactly what she was doing and that’s causing trouble.”
“Melissa behaved like a child, not like an adult,” Amber accuses. “Our mutual friends warned me about letting her back into our lives. I am still friends with all of them and love them dearly. Melissa feels I changed, well, my friends feel she stayed the same. Melissa loves no one but Melissa and has no ability to be a good, loyal friend.”
Yet Amber admits she has fault in the scenario as well. “At the end of the day, I should not have perpetuated what was said to me to about Nicole, true or not. However, I mistakenly thought Melissa was trustworthy given our history together. I will reiterate what I told Melissa about Nicole in the car was an accurate account of what I was told by multiple sources. I was simply answering Melissa’s question.”
Moving on to Nicole and Teressssa’s reaction in the clothing store. “Over-the-top, dramatically lame, contrived performance was my first impression,” describes Amber. “The twins decided to tell Melissa that I was talking poorly about Melissa — NOT TRUE.
“Te-RESSA tells Melissa my husband Jim thinks he is better than her husband and that he can’t hang out with Joe Giudice because of his legal issues. Since they did not speak to my husband, I can only assume this was Bobby’s second hand, used car selling version and an attempt to be cool with the Joes and Rino. I saw the episode, and the story spun by the twins and Bobby was not an accurate representation of Jim’s comments.”
“They are spiteful, petty, and downright deceitful. Seems like Bobby, Jim’s ‘best friend,’ was a busy bee behind the scenes telling Rino, Te-RESSA, and Nicole exaggerated lies of why Jim did not want to go bowling and drink with people he does not know,” Amber seethes. “My husband had never met Joe Giudice and he knew Joe Gorga had been involved in fights before. So Jim’s initial reaction was to keep a distance, because he does want to be around that kind of stupidity.” Well I have to agree with her on the stupidity charge!
“A good friend would have said, ‘Jim has to work tomorrow early and sends his regards,’ but that would assume Bobby had class,” Amber says giving her ettiquetcy lesson.
Finally Amber says that Nicole is well-aware of the home wrecker rumor about herself! “This was NOT Nicole’s first time hearing this rumor. It was not the first time, because I had let her know that I had heard this rumor before. So this running out of the store with the unpurchased items still on their back, driving to my home to confront me is just bizarre. Didn’t Nicole ever hear of the telephone? The telephone is “new” technology and it works quite well. Again, hmm…and I wonder, when someone has this over-the-top reaction, doesn’t that mean the allegations are typically TRUE?”
What happened to Amber telling viewers not to take the show so seriously? Anyway, she continued her rant on Twitter! “Seeing how Melissa treated her sister n law, not shocked she did this to me,” Amber wrote. “you have known me for over 10 years. you met them once and you mischaraterized what I heard through the grapvine? smh”
And finally a report from
Jim and Amber a source chimes in to blame Bravo for editing Jim to look like a typical RHONJ Househusband an aggressive thug in next week’s episode during Bobby’s party.
“Amber and Jim arrived at the party, which was to benefit first responders. Everyone was drunk and loud,” reports Radar Online. “Jim just wanted to leave, and on his way out, Joe (Gorga), told him to stay and party. Feeling uncomfortable because Jim is actually assisting the Department of Justice in a separate criminal investigation in which his company is an alleged victim. Jim tried to tell Joe that staying could place Teresa and and husband, Joe, in a precarious situation because at that time, their case was still pending.”
Jim “tried to explain that to Joe Gorga, but he just didn’t understand it, so Jim used the term Attorney General to try and get it thru his head,” the source continues. “He has the utmost respect for Teresa and Joe, and wants them to be treated fairly in court.” Yeah – OK, thanks Jim for clearing that up.
