Former ‘RHONJ’ Amber Marchese is speaking out after her step-son, James Marchese blasted his parents for failing to pay for his college tuition. A claim he says is because he is gay.
Amber began her statement via Instagram post Thursday afternoon, “I am going to repeat. My step son was never kicked out nor banished from his siblings.”
“He coldy walked away never to return. Although we were paying for his tuition at school, he did not include us with proms, school functions, nothing. Never called for brithdays, Christmas, nothing. We were never afforded a sit down conversation about sexuality. Michael got in trouble for lying about his where abouts with my other, at the time, 14 year old step son. We found out that he was bringing my young son around 18 year predators boys that wanted to sexually abuse him, among other Christian Brother freshman children. He was grounded by taking his range rover away. Michael has refused to sit down and speak with us for neary 2 years. We raised this child, sacrificing so much, giving unconditional love. I never treated him any differently than my own biological children. I have so many emails and texts imploring this young man to come home and talk. That we love him no matter what he is going through. He refused. This is parent alienation at its best. As far as college, we tell all of our children that we are going to be economically smart about it. Michael does not get a more expensive school because he wants speical privileges for being gay. Michael is using our platform to brow beat us into going to a school that we said no to. Currently, it is not in our budget. This is called a temper tantrum from a spoiled rotten, privileged young teenager. Michael, i forgive you, I love you, and you can always come home as you are. Nothing you do will make me love you less. However, the answer is still a resounding NO!! Daddy and I will not condone your lying, cheating, scamming, or public outbursts such as this. I dont care if Andy Cohen himself tells you how awful we are. It is not happening. Again, I love you, please, come to the therapy so we can discuss this as it should be discussed. Behind closed doors with a professional. I love you.”
