The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Amber Marchese has been very open with viewers about her past battle with breast cancer and even shared a scare during a checkup a few years later, documenting it on the show last season. Now Amber is facing another setback. She discovered another lump in her breast and is having surgery today to remove it and have it biopsied.
Amber opened up about it in a new post on Twitter this morning. Amber shared, “I originally wanted to keep my current situation a private matter until today. Monday morning I am going in for surgery. Truth be told, I found another mass, in the same breast as my first diagnosis, this past Friday before Easter. I found it while relaxing on the couch watching a movie with my husband.”
We haven’t seen too much of Jim and Amber Marchese since the reunion episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Last week they stepped out to attend the “Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast” screening and then stopped off at Buca di Beppo for dinner (and some family photos).
Other reality star sightings: GG Gharachedaghi and Reza Farahanhung out at the Stock Exchange as they promoted the new season of Shahs of Sunset while Bethenny Frankel did the afternoon school run with Bryn. Lisa Rinna got in a good workout and Ramona Singer attended the premiere of “Cop Show” in NYC.

First up Tuh-resssssssa and her husband Rino Aprea have been stung with a class action lawsuit by two former employees who allege the restaurant owners refused to pay employees for full shifts! Oh – and they had to pay to launder their own uniforms.
Teresa and Rino own Angelo’s of Mulberry St in NYC and a former bartender and a waiter have taken the RHONJ stars to court over a laundry bill and on an accusation that they intentionally “short changed” employees checks by paying them for 7 hour shifts when they routinely worked 10 hours. The suit, filed in US district court. cites that the Apreas “regularly scheduled or knowingly permitted” employees to work more than 40 hours but then refused to pay time-and-a-half for hours.
In December, Amber insisted waiting for Teresa to film season seven would be “silly,” adding, “I think they have an excellent cast, as is, and we can carry on.” Later, Jim argued that Teresa wasn’t the star of the show. He even pointed out that the most talked about episodes from season six – the trip to Florida – had nothing to do with Teresa.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
True Tori star Tori Spelling shared, “In bed with a terrible migraine. 3 things getting me thru it… bag of frozen peas (quick fix for ice pack), homemade lavender face mist (great essential oil for headaches), and Saranoni blanket in Ivory a must for the bedroom.”
Yesterday reports were zipping around, claiming that Bravo execs have decided to put The Real Housewives of New Jersey on hold until Teresa Giudice is released from prison next year. First, we all know that Bravo never confirms or denies the status of any of the Real Housewives franchises or which stars will or won’t be asked to return. Second, we’re going to be hearing every sort of rumor and supposed “tea” on what’s going on behind the scenes, but don’t start placing your bets just yet.
Last season’s cast member Jim Marchese is speaking out with his thoughts on the filming status of the New Jersey franchise.
“TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and ended all activities around the series, effective immediately,” the network announced almost immediately. “Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well-being.”
