You know, for being such an important guy who has so many important jobs, Jim Marchese sure has a lot of free time to gossip about Real Housewives of New Jersey. Do not even get me started on his Twitter activity. Oy. Most recently, Jim chatted with AfterBuzz TV about all the drama, his friendship with Bobby Ciasulli, the casting process, and more. And he did not hold back!
When asked if Real Housewives of New Jersey was the first reality TV experience for him and his wife, Amber Marchese, Jim said, “My first. Amber actually appeared on Restaurant Stakeout. But this is my first exposure to the wonderful world of reality TV.”
“Amber was contacted in February,” continued Jim. “They didn’t really tell us the name of the show at the time or any of the details. We ended up coming on board March/April of 2013. It was exciting for her and a real nice opportunity for me. My role was going to be very limited – just around my wife, around my children, and to help my friend at the time Bobby.”
Tamra claims she will never be friends with Lizzie. Her reason: “Her unhealthy obsession and lies about me are rather weird.” Tamra claims Lizzie has been “going around the neighborhood” besmirching her reputation with lies. “Please stop twisting things,” she implores.
“The lies that come out of her mouth are so twisted and down right scary,” Tamra accuses. “The truth is I did not know her very well and never said a bad thing about her to anyone. I honestly thought she was a nice person until I witnessed her drunk and talking very crass about my husband because I did not make it to her birthday party.”
Teresa has pretty much moved in at the courthouse, which I suppose is better than a jail cell, because Teresa and Joe returned to court to finally discharge their Chapter 7 filing of which there were 45 claimants.
“The case is fully and properly accounted for as provided by law. The trustee hereby requests to be discharged from further duties as a trustee,” the trustee, John W. Sywilok stated in court documents.
What’s Maci Bookout doing? Your guess is as good as mine. I honestly don’t pay any attention to the spoiled party girl. I’m sure the IRS is, though, now that she’s got a big pay day coming. 😉
Amber also has a new book, Never Too Late, to promote. In a recent interview, she talked about sharing her story, inviting cameras back into her life, opening her own rehab centers, reconnecting with Leah, and more.
Joe and Melissa Gorga are continuing to battle their tenant and prospective owner of their Montville mansion in eviction proceedings. It’s been back and forth for a couple months with the Gorgas vs. Kai Patterson. Kai was ordered to move out, but then had it reversed when a judge uncovered the Gorgas had never legally declared the property as a rental. Kai believe that is because they wanted to deceive people into believing they had sold their dilapidating mansion instead of renting it out.
The unresolved issues resulted in a trial, which is supposed to conclude tomorrow. Yesterday Joe testified in court in an attempt to evict Kai stating his tenant owes $192,557 in unpaid rent. Kai argued that he was withholding rent because of incomplete repairs (including massive plumbing problems) which Joe promised to make.
Trying to prove he was like all serious yo, Joe toted along not one, not two, but THREE attorneys in an attempt to remove Kai from the property so Melissa can move out of her “disgusting” rental and move back into the mansion she once couldn’t stand. How are they affording all these legal fees, I wonder? The garbage business?
Now, this season was a little rough for her, which she continually blamed on miscommunication and one big game of telephone. Despite the drama — much of it created by her bestie, Tamra Judge — “Fancy Pants Dubrow” continued to remain true to herself and to stand by Tamra.
But now, it seems, that she is asking everyone to forgive the ladies and their behavior, because “no one is perfect.”
When former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham tweeted that it was “time to be educated” and she hashtag’ed homeschooling, I crossed my fingers and toes and hoped her daughter, Sophia, was not part of the equation.
Surely Farrah is not homeschooling Sophia, I thought. Maybe Farrah is taking an online class, I thought. Well, I thought wrong. In a recent interview, Farrah confirmed that she is, in fact, homeschooling Sophia. Le sigh.
