The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Amber Marchese on ‘Marriage Boot Camp’: I Cheated on Husband Jim With a Woman

The secrets are coming out! The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Amber Marchese reveals on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars' Friday, October 28, episode that she previously cheated on her husband, Jim, with a woman, as seen in Us Weekly's exclusive sneak peek.

The We TV series' preview clip shows Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's Margeaux Simms opening up about her relationship with girlfriend Merika Palmiste. This season has focused on the couple's drama, which has been exacerbated by Simms' estranged husband, Nikko London, living in the house with them.

Simms tells her costars that she first started having feelings for women after she and London tied the knot. "When I was with Nikko, I thought about it, and I questioned it, and I talked to him about it," she says.

In an interview with the camera, Jim says about Simms, "She wants her cake and [to] eat it too." This leads Amber to quip, "What girl doesn't?"

The next scene shows Amber whispering to her female costars, "Guys, I want to say it slow. I had an affair with a girl — Jim got pissed. To me, it was like no big deal. It was like, so what?"

Last week's episode showed Amber and Jim — who appeared on The Real Housewives of New Jersey's sixth season — fighting over his fondness for booze. "You drink too much, and I tell you that," she said in the episode. "Stop f–king drinking."

Watch the tense clip above. Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars airs on We TV Fridays at 9 pm. ET.
