Jim Marchese was the most controversial cast member of last season’s installment of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” His wife Amber, while sometimes shaking her head at his ratings grabbing persona, was always by his side, once characterizing her husband as “a gentle lion.” Whether you loved the way he jazzed up a snoozy season, or just wanted him to go away, one thing is undeniable….he is a fiercely protective and devoted husband to his wife Amber, who is currently in the midst of a possibly life altering struggle.
Amber shared with her Facebook followers early morning, that she was scheduled to undergo a lumpectomy procedure later that day, articulately sharing the inner emotional struggle that so many women who have been affected by the horror of breast cancer, can relate to.
After the surgery Amber posted the following emotional video thanking everyone for their generous show of love and support towards her during this difficult time.
Many were touched by her honest and vulnerable narrative, describing how she is choosing to lean on and trust God, no matter the outcome. Social media responded, flooding Twitter and Amber’s Facebook fan page with prayers, warmest wishes for healing, and hopes for the most positive of results. Her Facebook followers came through strong, as an encouraging, united in message community.
“So sorry to hear your news…you are remarkably strong and your unwavering faith is inspiring! Praying God will continue to cover you and your family with his bountiful blessings of healing and peace during this time. Stay strong, precious warrior!!”

“Believe in your faith and continue to live your life Amber. God is with you always.”
“You will get through this!!! You are a strong, amazing woman! Wishing you the best.”
“I admire you so much. Many hugs and best wishes.”
Jim’s Twitter feed was buzzing with well wishers, supporting he and Amber both, during what had to be a truly difficult day.
The Marcheses face a rough period of waiting, but are sure to face whatever the future holds, together and strong. We at All About the Tea, as well as so many others, are sending prayers, and warm wishes for continued peace and healing, to the whole family. We are pulling for you Amber!
