RHONJ Amber Marchese

Amber Marchese sure has a lot to say when replaying the events that unfolded at a party on the last two episodes of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

If you have not been watching, first shame on you! Second you have missed some hair-pulling, screaming antics, reminiscent of a certain season one table-flipping brawl. And, of course, it all started with a rumor, innocently spread between friends. I think Amber would agree when I say, I bet she wishes she would have never opened her mouth to Melissa Gorga that day.


So Amber innocently told her friend, Melissa, that she heard her other friend Nicole Napolatino had “broken up a family.” Now, Amber claims it was because Melissa asked her a “direct question”, which we never really saw on film. But it could have easily been edited out.

“We have all been in a situation when we tell a friend about a rumor we’ve heard, and I am no exception. If Melissa wanted to tell the twins, so be it, but she should have told me that she had a conversation with them or planned to have a conversation. She never even gave me a chance to fix the situation with Nicole or even share my side. She had very recently met Nicole. If she had told me in advance or we had a chance to sit down together, the outcome would have been a lot different. I have never experienced disloyalty and hurt like I have with Melissa. Why didn’t she give me a warning?”

Well, according to Amber’s claims that follow, a warning may not have helped the situation at all. She thinks that Nicole and her boyfriend, Bobby (also the host of the party), had the whole thing planned from the beginning.

Nicole wanted a scene, not an apology. She made sure everyone was there, which kind of makes you think she planned it all along. We are all human, we all make mistakes, but we cannot go around attacking every person that speaks about our mistakes. I could have told her who was telling me the rumor and we could have dealt with it together. The fact that Nicole escalated the situation like that is just disgusting to me. She could have talked to me. I would have heard her side of it, and she would have gotten an apology out of me for not coming to her first. Maybe she reacted that way because she had no intention of just dispelling a rumor. Maybe there is more to it, and the reaction was a distraction from the truth…apparently, it is working.”

She continues, “The quote of the night from Bobby is, “We’ve been gone for ten seconds, this happened already?” This seemed to us like he knew that a confrontation of that magnitude would ensure, just not so quickly (sarcasm emphasized)! Watching the episode confirmed our suspicion even further that Bobby knew it was going to happen, when Bobby led the Joes upstairs for a “house tour” but instead was sitting having a drink. Bobby confirmed they just left the party downstairs and was surprised something “already happened.” Why didn’t Bobby say anything when the Joes were making fun of my husband as they walked up the stairs? Probably the same reason it took Bobby an hour to get our keys. I ask you, if a friend of twelve years and his wife were insulted and attacked by your guests, what would you do?”

Well? What would you do? I personally would leave, but Amber and her husband, Jim stuck around and got into it with the rest of the cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. It is early in the season, is there going to be a resolution? Stay tuned…..
