'RHONJ' Stars Jim and Amber Marchese Respond to Claims They Won't Pay for Son's College Because He's Gay

By

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Jim and Amber Marchese made headlines after the reality star’s son, James “Michael," claimed his dad and stepmom would not pay for his college tuition because of his sexuality. "It all started because I came out as gay," the incoming college freshman told E! News.  

He continued: "I was told that if I ever did anything he didn't approve of, I would be taken out of school, I'd never see my friends again, he was going to hurt my friends if he didn't tell them what he wanted, and then when I started living with my mom, it was he wasn't going to let me talk to my younger siblings on his side of him between him and Amber." Michael told the outlet that he is no longer able to talk to his parents or Jim’s family anymore, and he has been cut off socially and financially.
