The drama came to a head on Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey when Amber and Jim Marchese joined the cast in Florida. With tensions at an all time highÂ between Jim Marchese and his former friend Bobby Ciasulli and the threat of the Rino rumor being exposed, it was a givenÂ thatÂ tempers would flare.
After a few drinks Jim startedÂ throwing digs at Bobby, claiming it was time for him to grow up, settle down and marry Nicole. Nicole appreciated Jim’s comments and Bobby stormed upstairs and locked himself in the bathroom.
Meanwhile Jim was downstairs continuing the conversation sayingÂ that Bobby was cheating on Nicole and that he had spoken poorly about her family. (Rino rumor)
Nicole went upstairs to confrontÂ Bobby regarding Jim’s accusations while Teresa Aprea tells Jim that her husband Rino “will smash him.”
After returning from a talk with Bobby, Amber triesÂ to calm Jim down by telling him that they are leaving. But Bobby is ready to confront Jim head onâ€¦
This brings us to next week’s episode where Jim drops the bombshell, claiming that Bobby told him Rino Aprea slept with Teresa and Nicole’s mother Santa.
Recap: Everyone is mad at Jim:
Teresa Aprea to Jim Marchese: “Do you think he didn’t date a stripper?”
Jim Marchese: “No, but I do think he f*cked your momâ€¦”
