“Amber is definitely moving on to other ventures in life,” the outspoken cast member told RadarOnline of his wife. “I think it’s the best decision for herself, her health, and for our family.”

Jim revealed their departure from the show had to do with RHONJ’s “fake” storylines. “This show doesn’t fit who we are as people, our lifestyle, and who we are as a family,” he said. “The viewers don’t understand it’s not real. I was told to go to a place. I was told to hit beats, so I did it.”

He added of the fakery, “What they the viewers saw of Amber and I, was what the storyline called for,” he explained. “The constant beating of the drum of ‘She has cancer’ or ‘I’m being rude,’ that was what was required of us. That is not how we conduct ourselves.”

The Marchese family leaving the show has nothing to do with money, as Jim explained that they “don’t need the money.” He continued: “I never wanted to be famous. I never wanted to be an actor. To be snarky, if I wanted to, I would buy my own production company. I don’t want to though. My bank lends hundreds of millions of dollars a year. I’m relatively certain if I want to buy a half an hour on Bravo or any other station, I could do it.”

The couple’s decision to leave the show was inspired when the duo watched RHONJ: Teresa Checks In. “It was something we contemplated at the end of last year’s filming,” he said. “And the delay in filming, her health issues, and then watching the direction of RHONJ: Teresa Checks In, it just solidified our decision. I don’t know who they have and haven’t approached, but I know they would have no reason to approach us. I’ve said to the world, I don’t want my wife going back to the show.”

Jim also took a jab at his co-stars. “For the people returning, they know the game,” he said. “And quite frankly, they don’t have any money, so they have to do it to support their family. If we were in a financial position where we needed to, we would do it. But we’re not.”

He explained that while he has “no desire to stay in touch with anyone else from the cast,” his wife has developed a friendship with Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita. “We were given a job,” he said. “We did it. Now we are moving on!’
