Amber Marchese Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

Did A Death Threat Lead To Jim Marchese’s Domestic Violence Arrest On Virgin American Airlines Flight?!

More bad new, for Amber and Jim Marchese; the details of their nasty fight on a Virgin American flight have been exposed by TMZ, and they have no one to blame but themselves!

Amber and Jim filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Virgin America, and now the airline is firing back; accusing the couple of lying about the events leading up to Jim’s arrest, and even revealing that he choked Amber on the plane! I’m assuming this is what the couple meant by “intense PDA.

The witness, a Virgin America Airlines flight attendant went on the record about some of Jim’s foul language, and it’s clear that he was very aggressive. “If you want to be on equal f****** playing fields then carry the f****** bags.

According to the countersuit, Jim choked Amber and pulled her face very close, threatening, “Bitch, if you do that again, I will f****** kill you.

Then he pushed her face away and “released his grip around her neck. Even more, a passenger complained Jim “appeared drunk.

The flight attendant defended that she had no idea who Amber and Jim where, but of course Jim claimed that she was a “fame whore” who was “making false allegations to get attention!

We’ll keep you up to date on the Marchese’s battle with Virgin America, I’m sure more dirty details from Jim’s arrest will be available soon!

Are you shocked that Jim threatened to kill Amber? Were they partaking in intense PDA, or was it violent? Did the Marchese’s bring this media mess on themselves with the initial lawsuit?

    He is by far the most disgusting man I have ever seen. The way he verbally abuses his wife is hard to watch. And now he is attacking her on an airplane! He thinks he is so above everyone else. She needs to get away from this psycho. She will eventually be dead or seriously hurt due to his anger. Amber, please get away from this nut case! Can you imagine what the children have to endure? I thought she was smarter than this, but evidently she is not. Let’s all pray she wakes up and leaves this piece of dog shit!

  • FUCHESS

    This is the last thing I will ever write about the “man”. IF WE KEEP READING, WRITING, AND TALKING ABOUT HIM, HE WILL KEEP DOING ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING TO STAY IN THE PUBLIC EYE!!!

  • FUCHESS

    I DON’T WANT TO HEAR, SEE OR READ ANYTHING ABOUT THIS MAN!!! We were proven right about him. He’s been off the show a long time now. Quit beating a dead horse. ENOUGH OF HIM ALREADY!

  • JUST ME 5739

  • Laraine

    Oddly enough, this scumbag sounds like another excellent candidate for the trump administration. Wait for your call, Jim.

  • Ozzie Slim

    Jim is an abuser. Period. He controls or tries to control everything. I think he is a raging alcoholic and he has severe anger issues. Even a cursory investigation into his background shows that he has failed at virtually everything he has put a hand to. He continually attempts to hold himself up as a lawyer. He is not an attorney nor has he ever been an attorney.

    He is a failed pharma rep who was busted by the FBI and turned states witness for immunity. He is a shady sub-prime mortgage broker who is back to ripping off people in this new mini-housing balloon. Again. He is a failed reality “star” who was canned by Bravo and for the last two years has lived off twitter wars and posing on this site (see comments below) arguing with people who watch the shows. His recent stint on celebrity has beens in relationship counseling was a revealing look into his behavior.

    If Amber doesn’t leave, she is going to end up dead. It is only a matter of time before he ends up in prison for assault or murder. And we all know he will make some guy a very nice prison wife.

    • HWLOVER

      You think he’s on here??

      • dch60

        I wouldn’t doubt that he posed on any site, including this one. He can’t shut up period and I’m sure when he sees his name mentioned in such a bad light, he has to try to defend himself. He is a very sick man.

      • samael

        HWLOVER

        🙂

        when JerkOff was on this site, during and right after Amber was fired from #RHONJ

        he is a dickhead..ongoing

  • Money Doesn’t Buy You Class

    QUIT reporting on the antics of this NOBODY!

  • samael

    Awesome if ever a misogynist needed this.

    Disappointing that Amber is not valuing herself as a human and feels this is what she deserves to be with all -her life.

    Apparently surviving and kicking cancers ass twice, did not teach Amber to cherish life and be if you have to be with someone why stick with someone who abuses you in private (I assume) and publicly (on RHONJ and airplane.

    Virgin america only refers to the actual witness to this beating as – passenger. Glad they have the witness.

    • CsqD

      Samuel!

      (((Hugs)))! Thank-you for taking up for me on another RHONJ thread a few days ago! I think you and Polly are pretty awesome, too!

      Jim is a total sociopath! It makes me wonder what he threatens Amber with if she publicly turned on him? I’m sure with physical abuse but I also think with blackmail. Pics, recordings or witnesses that could hurt what reputation Amber has left.

      Jim is the male version of Jaq who will destroy anyone who he feels doesn’t treat him like a God!

      I do hope if Amber is in an abusive situation, (which I believe she is), she gets the strength to leave Jim in a quiet and dignified manner. I worry for the Marchese children.

      • samael

        Hey Csqd

        🙂

        ((hugs)) back and no probs!

        this marriage is a conundrum of sorts – I feel both are bullies and one of the bullies just happens to have survived cancer twice.

        You called it – black mail is Jimbo’s M.O. and lying his butt off

        I truly hope that Amber snaps out of it and takes the abuse out of her life and her children’s lives. I remember he skewered and publicly bashed and verbally abused his previous ex..publicly and in the court system.

        I keep thinking perhaps Amber is afraid of the backlash and more abuse if she does leave.

        At this point she needs to think of her children – he is not a role model and it would be a horrible existence if their kids were subjected to his abuse.

      • dch60

        I watched Marriage Boot Camp and she talks like the stereotypical abused wife. She has very low self-esteem and talks like everything is HER fault even when it so obviously isn’t. He was ultra abusive to her in the way he talked to her – threatening her – telling her the hooker he went to was better than she ever was, and on and on. It was cringe worthy. I cannot stand who he is. I wish nothing but the worst for him and it takes an awful lot for me to say that about anyone.

  • I 100% believe the stewardess … I hope Virgin countersues with lawyers that break his ass

  • HWLOVER

    Wow- He truly believes he is a noteworthy star- Reality TV people truly believe that they somehow become like a Brad Pitt/George Clooney- what the hell- the viewers numbers are not that big-they are not starring in box hits

    I watched Marriage BootCamp , and unless Amber is a wonderful actress, they were BOTH very weird- I also think her having Cancer ( feeing stuck) doesn’t help-I kinda wish she could have stayed on if for nothing more -to earn enough to run from this little MAN SYNDROME MOTH** FU**** BULLY- ( sorry, abuse makes me SICK)

    • Ozzie Slim

      You could see how abusive and controlling he was on that show. He ran around like a little bitch telling everyone what to do and repirting on what everyone said.

      It was horrible to see how beat down Amber really is and how much of that Bravo ignored.

      • HWLOVER

        @Ozzie- I know- that show was so telling-All I kept thinking was ” Do they realize this is being aired” , I mean he was so abusive, and yes he was the know -it- all to the others problems, but really didn’t address theirs. I think it was for $$$
        I agree with your above statement- If Amber doesn’t get out- he will hurt her more than he already has-

        • dch60

          I wouldn’t doubt if he physically abuses her but he controlled himself in that way on the show. It was crazy how he talked to her though, as if he hated her with a passion. I don’t doubt for one nano second about the choking accusation. There’s no way they’ll win a cent and I really hope they make Amber testify – she’ll lie but I think it’ll be transparent.

  • Lindsay

    James Marchese and Amber Marchese obviously first and foremost DO NOT BELONG IN A MARRIAGE CONTRACT ANY LONGER…SECONDLY.. HE NEEDS DOMESTICE VIOLENCE COUNSELING OR ARREST ..Thirdly…COUNTERSUIT…Virgin Airlines YAY..HOPE THEY WIN…

    • dch60

      I hope the do countersue for lying and attempting to hurt their reputation with the public. YUCK can’t stand him and she needs to open her eyes to what she’s letting him get away with.

  • Stephanie

    I found it interesting that it was brought up during season 6 reunion… that the other women were concerned if Jim abused Amber at home. Which was vehemently denied!! But I also got the same feeling. Any questions she was asked, she would almost look at him for approval and when she said things he didn’t like u could see it in his face and see a look of scared in her face. (I think the women s6, knew something but didn’t out her like Taylor was outed)

    Now skip forward to Marriage Boot Camp. I watched every episode. HE’ was scary crazy to her. The things that came out of his mouth was insane….and she would sit a listen like a wounded animal that is completely used to it. The airline ” incident ” happened as they left from MBC, where she declined the lie detector test. She said I’m not telling u now why I didn’t take it, I’ll say later.

    At the ring ceremony as the walked off both doctors said that whole speech from both was utter bullshit…and they are only worries about their image.

    I think he did get drunk and I do believe he choked her and said he was going to kill her AND I don’t think it’s a as Sonja says, a one off!!!

    I watched with my own eyes that he is verbally and emotionally abusive to her and wouldn’t be shocked to know he regularly is physically abusive.

    As for their ” we were having heavy pda” is ludicrous! If u look at pics following the incedent Amber def has marks on her face and neck. Sad, because I think she is stuck in the situation. He is probably drilled it in her head that she would lose the key is, I have no money and that she’s too dumb and an educated to be able to have a job. And she has to rely on him for everything.

    • dch60

      Taylor outed herself but I never did trust her. She acted like an abused wife too late. Prior she acted to opposite of abused and Russell didn’t show the signs either.

      We outright saw Amber get severely emotionally abused on Marriage Bootcamp. Jim isn’t capable of hiding it because it’s who he is. I don’t doubt physical abuse either and he got caught on the plane because he has no control. He’s hanging himself with the court case because things are going to come out so luckily it’s going to be difficult for Amber to stay in denial

  • Michers

    Wow . After that woman went through cancer twice and is mother to his children and his wife – I’m so disgusted. I really hope she stops worrying about the public and leaves his disturbing ass . The way he went off in Dina and Tre was red flag but I have him chance because defending wife after physical attack . I think his first wife had domestic V charges against him also which made me wonder how he had what appeared to be custody of those older kids???!!! Arsehole

    • Michers

      Lord help me . – gave

    • dch60

      Amber is the typical abused wife and I think it’s more about her denial than her worrying about the public. Michers, you would have been appalled by the way Jim talked and acted on the Marriage Bootcamp show. Beyond a creep. Amber blamed herself for everything and has no confidence. He even had the nerve to blame HER for the cancer. Sickening.

  • Marcy

    It gets even better Virgin filed a countersuit accusing them of lying to cover up what happened. Virgin is suing both James and Amber Marchese claiming they defamed airline and flight attendant to cover up allegations he grabbed his wife by the throat and threatened to kill her. You got all your money suing now you may lose it the same way…

    • Michers

      Oh goodie!!!! Good fir Virgin ! I wish them luck ! I hope Amber wakes the hell up . How does one beat death against cancer but allows such a disgusting man treat them like that ?????

      • Michers

        For . LOL I can’t win sometimes typing on this thing and for some reason autocorrect is a dirty sloot 🙂

        • CsqD

          LOL! Michers! It’s okay that you make typing errors. I usually don’t correct mine!

          That is good that Virgin Airlines is counter suing. I felt bad for the flight attendant who was getting bashed by the Marcheses. The way Jim publicly handled this incident was like he thought he was on a reality show! This is real life, Jim, and trying to take down an Airline by slandering them does have legal consequences! There goes the Marcheses 2nd whistleblower payout! #TeamVirginAirlines #Karma

          • Michers

            I feel like I have to keep correcting as its used against me when some ” disagree ” ( LMAO) with me 😉
            Jim clearly has an issue with women . It’s really something if you look back at his time in NJ. He also has a daughter – so terrible for her ! But ultimately it bothers me the most what Amber went through with cancer and she is choosing to stay with this POS. It’s sad , like you said about the flight attendant but doesn’t shock me . Why are we seeing more and more that are assholes who mistreat and degrade women promoted publicly in articles and these shows? It has to stop .

            • It’s very 🙁

            • dch60

              I get what you mean by it has to stop but it’s actually good that they’re revealing themselves on these shows. At least people know who they are dealing with now and they are getting called out.

    • Maru the Cat

      Yay!!! I totally believe the flight attendant. Virgin is a reputable company, their policies would be clear. The comments at the Daily Mail reflect what we are saying. No one believes that jerk.

      • dch60

        Their policies are clear: “No choking allowed.” LOL
