Happy Holidays indeed for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jim Marchese and his company Mortgage Now! Remember at the reunion when Jim bragged about bringing in $8.5 million dollars this year alone? Yeah, he was NOT EXAGGERATING, y’all! I know, I had to sit down, too.
It seems that although Jim seemed a little famewhorey and nutty at first, the guy is probably the only one on the show who REALLY is rolling in the dough and can afford to live the lifestyle these shows were meant to portray!
Amber Marchese joined Real Housewives of New Jersey with an agenda – IMO – and that was to slide into Teresa Giudice‘s place when Teresa went away. Amber attached herself to Teresa as soon as possible (to win over her fans) and started drama with everyone else (to be valuable to the producers). All that hard work and now there might not even be a season sans Teresa.
Amber recently dished about the possibility of a hiatus — shocker… she hates the idea – and her current thoughts on her co-stars.
Amber said her life is back to normal, which means free of drama, since filming ceased. “Normally there’s no drama in my life,” said the aspiring actress who is married to drama queen Jim Marchese. <side eye> “I’m a very focused mom and a very focused wife … that is where I’m happiest. I’m a homebody. I love being home with my children and honestly that’s my favorite job in the world.”

I watched this Bobby Ciasulli interview/video over a week ago and meant to transcribe it to share the juicier bits with you guys, but time slipped away and I never got around to it.

I’ll admit that Bobby’s version of events is interesting and worth a watch. So, if you find yourself with some down time this weekend and you love hearing the “behind the scenes” tidbits, I’m sharing the full video below!

Quick update: Dina Manzo is responding to Jim Marchese‘s latest claims that she asked to watch Jim and his wife Amber Marchese having sex. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is reacting with some shade and good humor.
Dina Tweeted this morning: “It’s all good. Once I saw Amber go down on a coke bottle in AC I knew there was nothin much to c.” And then she added, “Oops did I just type that? Yeah I did. They shouldn’t take my kindness for weakness!”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jim Marchese has had some pretty jaw-dropping things to say since he signed on for the show, but today’s quote from The Jim takes the cake.
Dina Manzo isn’t going to be a happy camper when she gets wind of the things that he has to say in a new interview. Jim made some crazy accusations, including that Dina reportedly wanted to watch Jim and Amber having sex.
Real Housewives Of New Jersey is nothing without a good villain – and this season, unlikely candidate Jim Marchese stepped into that role. Jim has been polarizing since the first day he appeared on the show, and he’s never shied away from being outrageous. Even today, after the season wrapped, Jim doesn’t apologize!
The Jim readily admits that he can be “a douchebag” but he’s OK with that title if it comes with defending his wife Amber Marchese, his career, or his reputation. “I am unfiltered. Clearly.” Which Jim says is why so many of the Housewives found him “unlikeable” – something that also goes for viewers who have lobbed a full-scale attack against Jim on social media and other platforms. One Jim encourages, it seems, by always retaliating.
Perhaps people really just want to see if the lawyer, who is not a lawyer, but did go to law school and didn’t take the bar, will follow through with suing us until we’re financially decimated, after he explains the ethics of abusing the legal system.

Part three of $#*! Jim Marchese Says, also known as the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, aired on Tuesday. So, with as many words as possible, Amber Marchese took to her blog to clear up a few things about Jim’s career, Jim’s bar exam, Jim’s misogyny, and Jim’s social media haters. Somewhere, Bobby’s hiding in a bathroom and crying, “Jim! Jim! Jim!” #MarciaMarciaMarcia
“Jim was a self-made, successful man at a very young age. He has never done drugs and has never been in trouble with the law. He put himself through undergraduate, then through a Masters in Public Administration at Columbia University while working at a pharmaceutical company,” bragged Amber. “Jim was then accepted to law school and once again attended in the evening while working for a biotech company. In addition, Jim was raising his son, Michael.”
