Amber Marchese Speaks Out About Domestic Violence Allegations


Two days after her husband was allegedly arrested for domestic violence charges, former RHONJ star Amber Marchese is coming forward with her version of what really happened on the airplane.

Jim was arrested on April 19th at LAX after he and Amber were removed from a flight. According to reports, he was seen choking her. But Amber says it’s all a huge misunderstanding.

“Domestic violence is not a joke, and having my husband be accused of such a heinous act is not only hurtful but damaging personally, emotionally and professionally,” Amber said in a statement to RadarOnline. ” I would never let myself be a victim of anything or anyone.”

Marchese says the couple were returning to New Jersey after filming a new TV project in Los Angeles. “We were actually talking about hooking up and joining the mile high club,” she said. “Some heavy PDA was involved, just the opposite of what certain people reported they saw. After that brief bit of fun between us we prepared for takeoff and I ordered a glass of white wine. I was peacefully sipping my wine and Jim was sleeping when we were asked to leave the plane.”

“Confused and scared, our first thoughts were ‘Did something happen to our kids???’” she revealed. “No explanations or answers were given to our questions and we were immediately separated.”

“All I wanted was my husband Jim, so we could figure out what happened and how to help the authorities by answering any questions,” Amber said. “All Jim wanted was to make sure I was OK. We asked why we were being removed from the plane. We complied with everyone involved from the flight attendant to the authorities. Through this entire stressful situation, my husband was nothing but a gentleman and never once lost his composure.”

She insisted, “To be crystal clear, there was no complaint of domestic violence, signs of distress or request for assistance made by myself and there was no wrongdoing by my husband. At no time did my husband ever choke me or threaten me in any way shape or form.”

“Jim and I have been married for 10 years and he has always treated me like gold and we have a beautiful relationship and a wonderful life,” she said. “Every relationship has flaws and we are not perfect BUT these reports are undeniably false and disgusting.”

Amber picked Jim up at the police statement after the incident.

              1. No I shouldn’t I should have closed my iPad and taken a chill pill! I hate dentists too! My hubs was there today. On the plus side the beautician who does my eyebrows has agreed to pop in to my home and wax them and I’ve found a mobile hairdresser! So I will be all set when my daughter comes up!

                1. ((((Sue))))♥️. Really! It’s okay. You’re entitled sweet one. I’m so glad you’re getting your hair and eyebrows done though, and I love that they’re coming to you. Now. Are you having anything else waxed that we care to know ? Hmmmmmmm?

                  1. Nah! I had my carpets cleaned! Plus it’s too painful! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

            2. Miss M is right Suze, you have every right to be ticked off. I hate what’s happening to you with the pneumonia and the Chemo, to top it off your husband is hurting from the dentist. It’s ok to release your stress. We love you. There’s nothing you can say that will change that ever. I’m sick of doctors and dentists too. You spoke for some of us that are frustated too. ((((Suze)))) ❤❤❤❤;)

              As for Amber and Jim. She’s enabling him. So sad. He is a petty, petty little man!

              1. Hi Joanna, just a silly moment! I need to learn to shut my iPad! My husband is ok just Man toothache! Similar to Man flu! Lol xoxoxoxoxo

                1. You’re so sweet. You don’t have to shut anything unless you want to. We are a family and we understand. Glad you will be looking beautiful when your daughter arrives.
                  Maybe your hubby is different, my hubby had a toothache or the flu he turned into the biggest baby. Sending you my best wishes and prayers. Lots of hugs and love. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

            3. Suze, do you have Zofran or anything to help? And please let us know. We are your sounding board. You can let it rip and be real here!

              1. I am back on cyclazine now they seem a little better! But off everything else until pneumonia shifts completely. They think one of the antbiotics was making me sick. So that changes today. Thanks for being so understanding some days I could scream others I’m fine. My SIL is coming Thursday to cheer me up and watch me get my eyebrows done!
                How is your dad Gigicat? How did the first treatment go?

              2. Gigicat, I have just spoken to my GP and she is leaving me a prescription out for Zofran. The others don’t seem to be working so she is trying me on the at. Thank you xxxxxxoooo❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

          2. God Damn it Sue! God damn it! God damn it ALL and I mean it!! I wish like WE ALL here do and stop this in its tracks NOW!! I’m so pissed for you too!! And I just got back from the dentist and have to go back in two days and I HATE the dentist too!! God Damn everything right NOW

        1. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  1. Amber, no one believes this. Stop protecting him. You deserve a REAL life. Gather your courage, confide in someone you trust and get your kids and go. The jig is up. Praying for you.

  2. Having money and a large home isn’t worth being abused, children growing up in a house like that does so much harm I feel bad for them, somebody kick that tiny mans Ass

  3. She sounds like a dumb kid explaining to his parents why he was sent home from school. “I was just sitting there doing nothing wrong and the teacher came over and made me go home”. Nobody gets unexpectedly asked to leave a plan when they are just sitting there doing nothing. The most frightening and horrifying part about this story…….they were working on another tv project, NOOOOOOOOO!

  4. So which story does she plan on presenting to a judge and think they will actually believe, considering someone on the plane tweeted the moment she was being choked? They were still on the runway and hadn’t even pulled away from the gate when, according to her, in only a matter of a few minutes, she and Jim:

    1. Talked about joining the mile high club
    2. Did some heavy PDA
    3. Had some brief bit of fun
    4. Ordered wine
    5. She was sipping on her wine
    6. Jim was sleeping
    7. Someone tweeted that Jim was choking her
    8. They were asked to leave the plane

    “We were actually talking about hooking up and joining the mile high club,” she said. “Some heavy PDA was involved, just the opposite of what certain people reported they saw. After that brief bit of fun between us we prepared for takeoff and I ordered a glass of white wine. I was peacefully sipping my wine and Jim was sleeping when we were asked to leave the plane.”

    1. Excellent point. Do you think this will ever come before a judge? Will Amber commit perjury? Will the witness testify? Enquiring minds want to know. Cue organ music.

  5. If Amber is a victim of domestic violence then she needs to be supported, not criticized. Victims suffer PTSD and all sorts of issues.

  6. Yeah…no! Not believable. Being a victim of domestic violence must be one of the worst places to be. I hope she gets out sooner rather than later.

  7. If she is being abused she needs help and support from her loved ones so she can get out and give her kids a normal life. Does anyone remember the episode with his ex? He talked so badly to her. Amber has a long hard road ahead no matter what she chooses
