Amber Marchese announced last week that she was leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Amber revealed that she had no plans of returning to the franchise, even though she possibly had an offer ready on the table. Amber, along with the other wives from New Jersey, didn’t film while Teresa Giudice served her time, and they were asked to wait until she was released to sign contracts. And Amber didn’t want to wait for a criminal.
But in her statement that she was leaving the show behind, Amber Marchese decided to hint that some of the scenes were staged. In fact, Marchese didn’t see some of the other housewives when they weren’t filming, and she wasn’t friends with the twins. Now, Amber is speaking out once again, and this time, she’s taking aim at fellow Bravo co-star Dina Manzo.
According to a new Radar Online report, Amber Marchese is now revealing that she is far from best friends with Dina Manzo. Of course, the two feuded over Jim’s behavior on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but the relationship is far from amicable when the cameras aren’t there. As Marchese explains, she plans to keep in touch with Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita, but she isn’t reaching out to Dina.
“No, she not even worth it. She is so twisted and disgusting. She doesn’t even deserve that,” Marchese said about Dina, adding, “She’s such a hypocrite. She hurts and destroys and she is just evil and dark inside.”

As it turns out, Manzo still texts Amber Marchese. Maybe she still wants to be friends, but Amber has had enough and would like Manzo to just leave her alone. She didn’t reveal why Manzo keeps texting her or what she says in her text messages, but Amber doesn’t really care about that friendship.
“Dina literally texts me all the time,” Amber explains, adding, “I’m like, ‘Go Away! Get away from me! Don’t f***ing text me. Delete my number!’ We will never cross paths again.”
The drama stems from last year when Amber ripped Dina to shreds in her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Amber was upset that Dina had yelled at Jim.
According to Radar Online, she simply wrote in her blog, “Dina and I hate each other. That has to do with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend was friends with Jim and I and [he] was married. It’s just awful.”
It sounds like there is much more drama happening behind the scenes for these two. Dina has been very secretive about her life outside of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, especially in regards to her feud with her sister, Caroline Manzo. The two have since made peace, and Dina may be trying to make peace with other people in her life. Amber isn’t willing to do the same in this case. When she announced she was leaving the show behind, she revealed that she was surprised at how the show was set up. It wasn’t what she expected and Marchese is now done with the franchise.

“Jim and I have been giving Real Housewives of New Jersey a lot of thought and given the current state of affairs regarding our personal lives and the direction of the show, we officially decided to move on. The show was not what we expected it to be, and I want to pursue more endeavors,” Amber Marchese told Us Weekly in her statement about leaving the show, adding, “I was picked on a casting call while pursuing acting. I approached the show as an actress wanting to make producers happy. I wanted to make Andy [Cohen] happy. I had little control over content, situations, or what they decide to show the viewers. The ramifications of that did not sink in until after I watched the show. That is not Amber on any level.”
