Amber Marchese is “unbothered” that Andy Cohen dubbed her husband, Jim Marchese, his least favorite Housewives husband at BravoCon 2022.
On Sunday night, the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum addressed Andy’s comment via her Instagram page, and boy, did she have a lot to say.
While Amber claims she’s “unbothered” by Andy’s comment, she goes on to write a small novel about her thoughts and feelings.
“This is me unbothered about Andy’s remarks about my family at Bravocon and other venues,” Amber wrote alongside a selfie.
The former one-season reality TV star then claimed that Andy simply hates her and Jim because they never kissed his ring and didn’t play the game as other Bravolebs do.
“You are pissed that we never kissed your ass or sold my family for your financial gain or amusement. We were targeted right from the beginning because we didn’t fit YOUR agenda, we didn’t conform, and we didn’t change. Bravo carefully crafted a false narrative about us to try to humiliate and bring us down. That season did not accurately reflect me, my husband, or my family. It was a joke. Bravo has deep pockets; they show whatever they choose to show you. It just comes down to what a family is willing to give up to be on TV. It is a heavy price to pay, a price I was unwilling to do any longer,” Amber continued.
She added: “Ps! I don’t watch that crap; people are sending me clips. @bravoandy, you must feel high and mighty hiding behind a network, a platform, and a production team to talk about people and try [to] ruin lives without ever being challenged. I never got to defend myself or my family; I just had to keep taking the beatings. Just stop or at least play fair, “tough guy.” You act like we produced that crap; take responsibility for your crappy season. We did our best with nothing but junk tossed at us at all times.”

During day one of BravoCon 2022, Andy was doing a panel with Hoda and Savannah Guthrie, where he was asked who his least favorite House-husband is. The Watch What Happens Live host danced around giving his answer, calling it an “HR issue” and joking about everyone in the audience pulling out their phones to record his answer.
He finally gave his answer, saying, “The husband of Amber. The forgotten season of Jersey with the twins. Listen, we tried; we were in a [pickle]; we were regrouping. It was a rebuilding year, as I like to say. Ya got your answer.”
RHONJ will return for season 13 in early 2023.
