Marchese, whose wife Amber appeared on season 6 of the Bravo show, tweeted on December 9, “So true NO STRAIGHT MALE wants his son to be gay. A gay son is a curse that takes away your #family traditions #heritage. #LGBTIQ is a parent’s nightmare that destroys families. Ruins holidays like #Christmas.” He added the hashtag, “#LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder.”

Then on Tuesday, he tweeted, "For those pushing #LGTBIQ agenda show me a single credible study which links genetics. Being gay is a physical act derived in sexual deviance by definition. No one is born gay it is a lifestyle choice like being vegan. Get over it. You are.”

Gorga exclusively told Radar of the comments, “That’s what makes him shallow! He’s an embarrassment to the show, especially with that comment. I’m happy he’s off the show.”

Marchese was labeled the villain of season 6. In April 2016, he was arrested for felony domestic violence after an airplane fight with his wife at Los Angeles International Airport. He reportedly grabbed Amber’s throat and threatened her. He was pulled off the flight before takeoff. Two days later, the couple denied domestic violence, claiming it was “some heavy PDA.” Marchese was never charged.
