Amber Marchese was a one-and-done cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6. She was well-known for the drama caused by her polarizing husband, Jim Marchese. For example, Jim complained that Teresa Giudice shouldn’t be allowed to return to RHONJ after she served her prison time. Jim was rude to the New Jersey ladies on many occasions. In 2015, Amber announced, to the relief of many viewers, that she was moving on from the show.
During the Season 11 RHONJ premiere, Jackie Goldschneider threw a birthday party for her husband, Evan Goldschneider. Teresa decided that this would be an excellent time to walk around the party repeating the rumor that Evan was cheating. Does Teresa know how to party, or what?
When Jackie found out and had a meeting with Teresa, everything went left. Teresa refused to apologize, or to say who she heard the rumor from. Oof. “I heard Gia [Giudice] snorts coke in the bathroom at parties. I mean, I heard it, I don’t know where I heard it from… It’s the same thing!” Jackie told Teresa.
Teresa became enraged and stormed out. Still, Jackie doesn’t regret her comments. She stated, “It was definitely just an analogy. I was trying to make the point about … how words can hurt.” So can a table flipped in your direction, Jackie. It never works trying to use logic with Teresa.
And Teresa isn’t backing down from her stance. “If it’s not going on, you stand up for yourself,” Teresa remarked. “It’s not like I made it up. It was out there. I’m not saying it’s true, I’m not saying it’s not true.”

Teresa is furious that her daughter, Gia, was brought up during the argument. “I think anybody– anybody –that would say something like that about someone else’s child is disgraceful. It is. As a lawyer, not smart,” Teresa added. “Just saying! Not smart at all.”
Even the cast trip to Lake George, which Jackie skipped, didn’t change Teresa’s mind-set. No matter how many times people explained the analogy about Gia, and that Teresa shouldn’t have spread the rumor, it fell on deaf ears. In fact, Teresa believes that Jackie owes her an apology, and Teresa owes Jackie–nothing. Wow. Just… wow.
And now, Amber has decided to weigh in on the current RHONJ chaos, and Teresa’s part in it. Amber told US Weekly, “She has the power of the network. She has the power of the production team. … They create a story, and they use her as a little soldier to go and do their bidding and she will do it,” Amber explained. “She doesn’t care who she hurts.”
Amber also thinks that Teresa is operating without the best intentions. That was clear from the jump this season at Evan’s party. Amber shared, “She was a miserable person when I was on the show and she just doesn’t look like a happy person now, even though she could pretend all she wants.” The RHONJ alum added, “It just doesn’t work. … She’s wrapped up in this world and she can’t get out.”
