No more Housewives, no more problems! Now that Amber Marchese and her husband Jim Marchese have quit The Real Housewives of New Jersey, they are ready to tell the truth about how they feel about Teresa Giudice!
During an exclusive interview, Jim told RadarOnline.com that producers for the show are the ones who came up with the idea to have Amber call Teresa to talk about her criminal proceedings during the last season. "They asked her countless times to call Teresa about her criminal issues," he claimed.
The drama continued as they producers made Jim and Amber talk about the Giudices' impending incarceration. "They wanted us to talk about it because they felt the viewing audience wouldn't understand it and because of my training, I could explain it," he said. "They would have Amber call, and us talk about it."

"In truth, we could care less," he said. "It has nothing to do us."

In fact, as Radar first reported, the Marchese weren't thrilled when filming for Season 7 was delayed because of Giudice. "It is BS that the entire cast, especially my wife, had their filming put on hold because Tre and Joe committed several felonies and Teresa is sitting in jail," Jim previously told Radar.

Jim also told Radar that he believed Andy Cohen was endorsing the Giudices' criminal behavior. "Andy is clearly endorsing Tre's behavior as it RHONJ: Teresa Checks In was focused on Tre and the sympathetic issues surrounding her kids," he claimed.
He was annoyed that the Teresa special focused on her young kids. "They were shown crying missing their mom and over-dramatized other hardships…" he explained.
Marchese also didn't like that the three-part special avoided showing the effects of the Giudice's crimes. "Not one scene was dedicated to the people she stole from, how their lives have been hurt or the children of families victimized by their crimes," he raged.

So now, as Radar reported, Amber is done with RHONJ. "This show doesn't fit who we are as people, our lifestyle, and who we are as a family," Jim explained.

"The delay in filming, her health issues, and then watching the direction of RHONJ: Teresa Checks In, it just solidified our decision to leave," he concluded.
