There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

We hate to see her go out on such sad terms.
Amber Marchese was brought on to Real Housewives of New Jersey last year when Bravo tried to re-tool the show with a more mafiosa feel… but the chemistry just never quite worked.
Unfortunately for the mother-of-four, her role as a Reality TV star is the least of her worries as she is currently dealing with her second battle with breast cancer.
"Jim and I have been giving Real Housewives or 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 suitable endeavors.
I only met with Teresa Guidice and Dina Manzo for filming purposes. I never built a friendship with them as we were nothing more than co-workers. I wish them all well and the best of luck, although, my husband does not share my sentiments."
Yikes. Doesn't sound like she and Jim had the nicest time… and leaving definitely seems like the best thing for everyone.
We wish her the best as she undergoes treatment.
