Jim and Amber Marchese have quit the The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Jim recently dished to Radar Online, to spill some behind the scenes, Bravo secrets. Jim claims that Bravo production was behind the phone calls between Amber and Teresa, where Teresa’s criminal plight was discussed.
“They asked her countless times to call Teresa about her criminal issues,” he claimed.
Jim spilled that production also made him and his wife talk about the Giudices’ impending incarceration.
“They wanted us to talk about it because they felt the viewing audience wouldn’t understand it and because of my training, I could explain it,” he said.
“They would have [Amber] call, and us talk about it. In truth, we could care less,” he said. “It has nothing to do us.”
Jim has made no secret of the fact that he didn’t appreciate being put on hold by Bravo, due to the Giudice criminal fallout.
“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 is] sitting in jail,” Jim previously commented.
Jim asserts that many strikes led to the couple’s decision to exit the show.
“The delay in filming, her health issues, and then watching the direction of RHONJ: Teresa Checks In, it just solidified our decision [to leave],” he concluded.
Jim previously spoke to All About the Tea, blasting Bravo’s Teresa Checks In, calling the project “a dark endorsement of criminal behavior and exploitation of children.” His scathing comments spoke for hoards of fans who were disgusted by the project, and Andy Cohen’s blasé attitude about the disturbing spectacle. Jim is not one to disappear into the reality shadows, quietly. Something tells me that this is not the last we will hear from Jim Marchese.
