There’s more drama with the new cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but this time it’s happening off-camera. RadarOnline is reporting that new Housewife Amber Marchese’s husband JamesÂ accused his ex-wife of trying to have one of their sons falsely diagnosed with autism during their nasty custody fight.Â James divorced ex-wife Rebecca Grande in 2004, but went to court in Monmouth, NJ years later in an attempt to gain full custom of their sons.
In the court documents he claims Grande hadÂ â€œa lack of moral andÂ ethical character, which was necessary to raise teenage boysâ€ before going on to list several other reasons why he believed she wasnâ€™t fit to have sole custody.
â€œThe defendant (1) was being evicted for the second time; (2) had tried to have one of their sons falsely diagnosed with autism; (3) failed to provide him with ongoing medical and educational information on the children; (4) tried to have plaintiff put in jail for violating a final restraining order; and (5) had pled guilty to a second-degree felony that would likely result in jail time,â€ the documents alleged.
The judge denied both motions, finding twice that James presented no proof of changed circumstances that would warrant a change in custody.
James and Amber will both appear on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
