Amber Marchese The Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

Jim Marchese on Wife Amber Quitting RHONJ: “We Don’t Need the Money”


It has been a whirlwind couple of days for the Marchese family! After Amber confirmed she would not be returning to RHONJ, Jim decided he couldn’t leave it at that and further spoke out about his wife’s departure from the Bravo series.

Jim spoke with Radar Online after Amber announced the news.

Per Jim “This show doesn’t fit who we are as people, our lifestyle, and who we are as a family”

Jim went on further to make sure viewers knew that unlike some other Housewives, being on the show wasn’t the Marchese’s bread and butter:

“I don’t need the money. I never wanted to be famous. I never wanted to be an actor.
To be snarky, if I wanted to, I would buy my own production company. I don’t want to though. My bank lends hundreds of millions of dollars a year. I’m relatively certain if I want to buy a half an hour on Bravo or any other station, I could do it.
For the people returning, they know the game. And quite frankly, they don’t have any money, so they have to do it to support their family. If we were in a financial position where we needed to, we would do it. But we’re not.”

Thoughts on what Jim has to say? Do you think it’s in his family’s best interest if he just keeps quiet at this point?
