Jim Marchese has claimed to hate everything Bravo related; however seems to be having a tough time letting it go! Similar to Brooks from the OC, Jim is writing a tell all book which he claims will open everyone’s eyes to the fake world of reality TV (side note: I don’t think many people watch Housewives for “reality” it’s more mindless entertainment that most people already know is set up in one way or another!)
Once Jim announced his book I wondered if they had to sign non-disclosures and how this would work out legally. It seems like we may be finding out soon as Jim tweeted that Andy’s legal team had contacted him regarding his tell all book about his time on the show:
When one user asked Andy if he wanted to kick Jim’s behind Andy either pretended (or actually) didn’t know who they were referring to:
Jim then went on to get to the “heart of the matter” which may be his real beef with Bravo and Andy: he seems to be angry that he and his children were not paid for their time on RHONJ! This is where it gets even weirder for me (if that’s even possible). It’s called real Housewives and is about the ladies – why would he think he would be paid? Also if Jim is the legal expert that he puts himself out to be – he must have read the contracts before signing.
I’m sure we will hear more about this on social media!
Are you surprised that Jim is writing the book as “payback” for lack of payment for appearing on the show? Do you think his book will make it out or do you think Andy’s legal team will take care of it before it can be published??
