Delayed again! Filming for season 7 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is on hold until Teresa Giudice is released from prison, and Jim Marchese is putting Andy Cohen on notice again, this time for “clearly endorsing” Teresa’s criminal behavior.
Jim spoke to All About the Tea exclusively about the main difference between his kids being on the RHONJ and the Giudice children. He said, “My kids are always dressed and behave appropriately during out filming sessions. Our children are in scenes with our family or friends, never in adult situations.”
Now Jim is sharing with RadarOnline that he and his wife Amber are “extremely aggravated” over this latest delay. Jim said, “It is BS that the entire cast, especially my wife, had their filming put on hold because Tre and Joe committed several felonies and (Teresa’s) sitting in jail.”
If Jim had his way, the special Teresa Checks In could have focused more on others effected by Teresa and Joe’s “criminal proceedings” and less on “over-dramatized” situations inside the home.
Jim explained, “Not one scene was dedicated to the people she stole from, how their lives have been hurt or the children of families victimized by their crimes.” He added, “Andy is clearly endorsing Tre’s behavior as it was focused on Tre and the sympathetic issues surrounding her kids. For example they were (shown) crying missing their mom and over-dramatized other hardships…”
So where does this leave things with Amber? After bravely battling another cancer diagnosis, would she even want to sign up for another season?
Jim explained, “Every time they focus on Tre’s incarceration, they hurt the show and its reputation. Now, my wife has to decide if she wants her good name on a show this dark.” He concluded, “The delays in filming and lousy ratings are just two more examples of how Tre’s criminal activity hurt families.”
