On the last episode of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” we witnessed new cast member, Amber Marchese become very emotional after reading a report online about Teresa and Joe Giudice’s legal issues. Ever since that was aired, Amber has been under fire by fans accusing her of over-reacting. Amber tries to explain the reason(s) for her outburst in her Bravo Blog.
Here are excerpts from her blog:
“OK, OK, OK, on to my most annoying scene to date — my total meltdown when I called Teresa! OH MY Lord! I seriously was annoying to watch, I cannot imagine what you all were thinking. I remember that day, and I can assure you, I was having a very rough and emotional day. I cannot share exactly what was going on yet, but I was going through a very difficult time. I think it just all hit me at once, and I was displacing my fears and anxieties onto Teresa. Not that I do not care for her or her family, I truly do. That was absolutely not insincere; I was emotional for personal reasons and just could not deal. I do wish though that Gia, a 13 year old child, could have been asked to leave the room as her mother talked to both me and Melissa. I guess we have very different parenting styles. In my opinion, Gia should not hear adult conversations. Regardless what you think of my breakdown, I certainly do not give a crap about what she was wearing to court, I am thinking only of her children. Honestly, I wish I was not so empathetic to other sometimes; I take on other people’s heartaches all of the time, and it greatly affects me.”
I can totally understand getting way too emotional over something that a friend is going through especially if I were going through something that was troubling. In fact, I’ve been there, done that.
I also don’t think that people will disagree Gia should not be privy to adult conversations, particularly those of such severe legal matters. Most of online comments that I’ve read on various blogs the viewers are also concerned about the Giudice girls; no matter what their opinion about Teresa and Joe are.
“And, as far as asking too many questions, she is right, I did, and I apologize. This is difficult for me; I am unfamiliar with situations like the one Teresa and Joe are in. It is my personality to educate myself on everything there is to know of the situation. I remember when I was being treated there were two groups. Some people being diagnosed with cancer did not want to know anything about it. Their attitude was just give me the treatment and call it a day. As you can see, that is not me, I wanted to understand the science, the medicine, and the statistics about everything that I was going through. I think and think and think repeatedly in my mind until the thought is pulverized. Sometimes it is exhausting; I wish my brain would turn off. But it is just me, always has been and always will be. However, I do have to learn and respect that not everyone is going to be like that, including Teresa.”
Amber has a point here. How many people are familiar with situations like what Teresa and Joe Giudice are going through? Not many! There is a saying “Inquiring minds want to know”. Amber does not appear to be the type of person to sit back and say nothing. If she wants to know something she will ask. Frankly, I was happy to see someone have balls enough to ask Teresa questions point blank rather than ignoring the giant elephant in the room.
She goes on to explain why she took Teresa aside at Dina’s house while they were there to discuss plans for the upcoming Project Ladybug event.
Welcome to my mind:
1. The twins and I were working things out. Was Teresa going to say something? How was she going to handle it? I did not know Bobby and the twins were trash talking behind my back about reaching out to Bobby. I truly thought were working things out.
2. After what Bobby, the twins, and even Melissa did to me, I was not in a place that I trusted anyone. As I looked around the room, I thought not one person who knew I was attacked, not one, gave a sh–. They did not break it up. They were worried about eating and went to dinner to celebrate with the attackers. And remember, it was because of me this group met. They knew one another for a hot minute. So, no, I was not trusting anyone at this point. With that in my mind, I found it suspect and odd that Teresa, who is good friends with Victoria, never heard this shocking piece of information. Was I being set up? AGAIN!?
3. More bizarrely we were just asked to go on vacation with the girls. I have never left my children for any reason, so this was a big step for me. Before I even considered going, I wanted to make sure that Teresa knew that first; I would not disrespect her or her friend and blab to anyone about what I was told. I wanted to be crystal clear that I did not know what she was going to do with this information, if anything, but I was not going to do a damn thing with it. I am sweeping it off my front porch!
4. What did Victoria Gotti gain by telling me this? Just why?! Still to this day it baffles me.
I leave you with a final thought that swirls in my mind still to this day. How did Teresa not know Victoria Gotti’s bombshell about Rino already? That is some story to keep a secret until a causal drop in. Why do the twins blame me and Jim? We did not know Victoria Gotti, so something seemed out of sorts. The meeting was way too coincidental for me. All I know is Teresa brought this rumor to my table, and I was asked to go to Florida with a group of girls who either attacked me or sat idly by as I was attacked…stay tuned.
In Amber’s defense, she brings up a great point. Teresa and Victoria Gotti claim to be great friends. Are we to believe that there was never a conversation between them about Tuhressa’s husband Rino SLEPT WITH HIS MOTHER-IN-LAW when Victoria learned that Nicole and Tuhressa were joining the show? I’m sorry but women like to gossip and I find it very hard that Teresa didn’t know this juicy little tidbit before that scene in Victoria’s kitchen.
I also don’t blame Amber for wanting to know what, if anything, Teresa was going to do with that information so she could be prepared.
Lastly, I agree that the anger is somewhat displaced over this story being let out of the bag. Fingers should be pointed at Ms. Gotti first and foremost.
I certainly am looking forward to their Florida trip!
