In April Jim Marchese was yanked off of a Virgin Airlines flight and arrested for domestic violence against his wife, former RHONJ Amber Marchese. The couple claimed that a stewardess misunderstood their “intense PDA” and that Jim would never, ever abuse Amber. Charges were not filed, but the couple basked in the attention; threatening (and possibly filing) lawsuits and issues multiple press releases on the embarrassing ordeal!
Jim and Amber were on there way back to Jersey from LA, and they claimed to be working on a new reality show. Well, on Friday US Weekly announced that Amber and Jim will be starring in season 6 of WE TV’s Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars.
This show is just what you’d think, marriage bootcamp! The other former reality stars holding on for “one more season” are Tanner Tolbert and Jade Roper from Bachelor in Paradise, Karen Gravano and her boyfriend Storm from Mob Wives, Keke Wyatt and her husband Michael Ford from R&B Divas Atlanta. I never heard of the last couple, but so far this cast does sound entertaining! To top it off a mystery “thruple” consisting of 2 women and 1 man will be surprising the cast and viewers for season 6; this sounds like one wacky season!
I can’t lie, I will be watching this season, I have to! I do NOT see Karen and Amber getting along, but you never know. I think Karen will be way more entertaining than Amber and Jim, and I am guessing that a lot of there problems focus on him being so negative in the public eye, and maybe even his twitter rants! I think they could probably benefit from Marriage Boot Camp, I just think it should be out of the public eye.
Here’s another thought, could Jim’s arrest all have been to play up there role on this show; or maybe even a way to secure there spot? Unfortunately they have proven to love the spotlight and will stop at nothing for fame; I wouldn’t put it past them. Things are all starting to make sense now. I assume Andy and Bravo will end up being embarrassed that they worked with the Marcheses’, if they aren’t already!
The only other Bravo couple I recall on Marriage Bootcamp is Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley, and I would definitely categorize these couples the same way; delusional, fame-hungry, and desperate!
