Epic fights on Real Housewives of New Jersey are a regular part of the show. The past three seasons everyone ganged up on Teresa Giudice. Now the tables have turned. There is one trouble maker going after each woman individually. Wet Paint is reporting new cast member Amber Marchese has been bullying Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.
A source told Radar Online that Amber’s husband owns a mortgage company and the Marcheses do not like to associate themselves with criminals. A housewives insider told Wet Paint, “Amber will do anything to grab attention — she has fought with every single cast member and now her husband is getting in on it. She went after Melissa [Gorga] first and now has moved onto Teresa. She knows going after the two main housewives will get her the most camera time.”
A lot of people go on reality television shows in order to promote themselves or their product. The situation with Amber, however, is different. She is trying to get attention for her husband’s business. Amber is also deliberately hitting Teresa below the belt. She knew about Teresa’s legal problems before the show started shooting in December. Amber may have joined the show because she has a vendetta against the Giudices and planned to humiliate them on national television.
Teresa is nobody’s fool, but in this case she was naïve. An insider also told Wet Paint that “Teresa looked nervous and subdued when the topic of conversation turned to her legal drama: She tried to downplay the whole scene and not make it an issue while the cameras were rolling. She’s desperately trying to keep control over how her pending legal trouble is portrayed on the show and thought that everyone would respect her and not discuss the legal drama.”
I want to know if Bravo knew of Amber’s hatred of Tre when they cast her. It wouldn’t surprise me if this is true. The ratings for the New Jersey edition of Real Housewives had horrendous ratings last season. Perhaps Bravo feels they need someone to spice things up. If this is the case, the audience will see right through it. Their plan may blow up in their faces.
