I started this blog by reading Dina’s blog. It’s literally a philosophical discussion on “intention.” It reads as an advice column or perhaps a morning meditation. It’s weird and irrelevant. Everyone’s blog is about Amber and/or Jim. Before I even read the rest of them, I should point out that Amber had some sort of meltdown on Twitter, or perhaps it was Jim because at on point Amber actually claimed that Jim took over tweeting on her account. There was an altercation with Bobby where whoever was using the account said,” u r a sick bastard Bobby. ur day will come.” and “keep trying to be famous Bobby. we d/n want to upset daddy.” and other jewels. Don’t you love when media whores, point fingers at other media whores claiming the want camera time? That is exactly what they all want and why they are on the show. Amber keeps referring us to her blog on twitter, but so far Bravo hasn’t posted it. I get the feeling it will need its own post anyway. So when it’s up, I’ll get on it as soon as I have time.
As you saw in the episode, the Marcheses continue to contradict themselves. They seem to REALLY want to be liked by the Giudices and at the same time find ways to let us all know that they are too good for them. I’m confused, which is it? I also think Jim talks a big game and wants to portray a certain type of image that I would hope isn’t who he truly is, because no one can be that judgmental.
What I do know it that it’s not cool for a grown man to walk up to another man and call him a dumb ass in his ear in a very nasty way. Joe was sitting down and not in Jim’s face at all. Jim went too far. Joe just was defending his family, and for Jim to get in his face like that? I mean come on! He’s asking for a reaction, begging for it.
Getting to Bobby’s “first responders party,” out of respect for Bobby and his home, I was actually quite calm when Amber approached me in full-blown phoniness. I calmly walked over to Nicole so that she and Amber would rectify this matter. All Nicole expected was for Amber to apologize. However, Amber lost control, raised her voice, snapped her fingers, and made demands for us to “get upstairs.” Is she kidding? I will never be spoken to that way, nor will I ever respond to the verbal condescending abuse of a bully. What the responders needed that night was a straightjacket for Amber, LOL! I saw what happened that night between them. Amber grabbed Nicole’s arm. Nicole pushed her hand off and pulled her hair. There was physical contact between them both. I don’t condone raising hands and cat fights, but I was also taught to stand up and protect the people you love.
One important thing I want to make clear, VERY CLEAR, is that I do not condone violence. I regret that the whole physical altercation ever took place. It was truly unfortunate and undignified. I have never been in that position before and hope to God I never will be again. However, I will never back down to ANYONE who attempts to ruin my reputation! So actually the loss of a few hair extensions was not much compared to the defamation of my character. To me, verbal abuse can be just as harmful as physical abuse, and that is exactly what took place.
I don’t blame Amber for the things her husband says, but they were hurtful and sort of insane coming from HIM. First of all, he admitted his opinion of me and Joe was completely formed from “the news” about us. That’s a really shallow way to live, especially for someone who was making his own news before RHONJ was ever on the air. I don’t believe everything I read. I keep an open mind and try and make my opinions after I meet someone based on their actions toward me personally. (Newsflash: my opinion after meeting him based on his interactions with me and my family was very, very low.)
Second, Jim Marchese claims he can’t be at the same location as my husband because it would hurt his mortgage business? Is he serious? That would be baloney for anyone, but coming from THIS GUY?
Teresa has a point. Not a day goes by that someone doesn’t send me information about Jim Marchese. The only one I posted about so far is the Cell Therapeutics Whistle blower saga. There are all sorts of lawsuits about Mortgage Now, many with Jim as the plaintiff and many with him as the defendant. I’ve seen court documents that show that the state of Washington did a lot of investigating into the company which ended with Mortgage Now Inc. and James Marchese essentially giving up his license to work in the mortgage industry and the state of Washington fining him and restricting him from reapplying for a license for 20 years. There is also a lot of wild speculation about something even more problematic making the rounds, allegedly. It’s very clear that Jim is very litigious and has allegedly already threatened to sue at least one blogger over reporting on his background.
Can someone explain to me how someone with so many skeletons in their closet, would come on to the very reality show where two people are now facing prison time for their own skeletons and not expect it all to come out? It pure insanity at its finest and we all have a front row seat. I would caution you to be careful how you word your comments on this post. I suspect that Jim has the Sheree Whitfield gene regarding filing meritless lawsuits, and like Sheree he doesn’t realize that suing bloggers just gives them a MUCH wider audience. If hypothetically, someone blogged that you have a little dick, shrieking high and low SOMEONE SAID I HAVE A LITTLE DICK! over and over is probably not the ideal way to handle it. When you sign up to be on a reality show, you have to learn to roll with the punches and ignore a lot of stuff. In fact, most people learn that in middle school.
