Jim Marchese joined the cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey last season with his wife Amber, and in a new interview Marchese says it’s time for Bravo to move forward with the show and fire Teresa Giudice.
â€œI donâ€™t think she should be on the show any longer,â€ Marchese told the NY Daily News. â€œI think glorifying a felonâ€™s life is counterproductive, and I donâ€™t think itâ€™s appropriate.â€
Marchese added that if the network wants to keep Giudice for ratings, they should hire other convicted felons to appear on the show.
â€œI think we could have Bernie Madoff on the show, he has good name recognition also, and heâ€™s done things and Iâ€™m sure there would be some curiosity,â€ he says. â€œIt isnâ€™t about seeing how individuals can work our system, rip off the American people, not pay taxes and then live a lifestyle that pretty much no one I know has.â€
Known for his presence on Twitter, Jim has said that Teresaâ€™s presence on the show â€œhurt ratings.â€
