Amber Marchese (born August 13, 1977) is an American television personality and entrepreneur. She is best known for starring in the reality television series The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Amber appeared on the sixth season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey in 2014. However, she exited the series after one season. In July 2016, it was announced that Marchese and her husband would be appearing on the eighth season of Marriage Boot Camp, that is also known as Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars 6.
Marchese is married to James Marchese, with whom she has two children, Corbin and Isabella. James and his ex-wife Rebecca Grande have two sons, Michael and Sebastian. Marchese studied at Columbia University where she graduated with a B.A. in bio-behavioral studies and exercise physiology. In April 2016, James Marchese was arrested for domestic violence, after allegedly grabbing and threatening Amber. She later responded to the allegations, saying they are false and issuing a statement: “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. I would never let myself be a victim of anything or anyone”. In May 2016, Marchese’s husband Jim announced he plans on suing Virgin Airlines for $100 million, citing a flight attendant misinterpreted him and Amber snuggling on the airplane. In October 2016, the two officially filed a lawsuit against the airline for false imprisonment. In January 2017, Virgin Airlines filed a lawsuit against Marchese, stating the two lied after the alleged domestic violence occurred.
