Amber Marchese is an American actress, entrepreneur and reality television star who has a net worth of $15 million. That is a combined net worth with her husband James Marchese. Amber Marchese became famous when she joined the Bravo reality television series "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." She appeared as a main cast member in the show's sixth season, in 2014. James and Amber also own an IT startup and a shipping concierge app called Box Jeannie.
Amber was born in New Jersey on August 13, 1977. After earning a BBA from Monmouth University she received a master's degree in Bio-Behavioral Studies and Exercise Physiology from Teachers College, Columbia University.
She is passionate about health and fitness and has created her own brand called Vici Fitness. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at 31 and underwent a double mastectomy, in addition to a year and a half of chemotherapy, while caring for four young children. She has been in remission for five years and is inspired to be a better mother, wife, and person because of her cancer.
Amber is heavily involved in philanthropy and donates her time and money to charities involving young women and cancer. She is currently pursuing a career in acting and has appeared in several commercials, as well as a television episode for the Food Network.
Amber is married to James Marchese. The couple have four children: Amber is the biological mother to Corbin and Isabella, and she also has two stepchildren, Michael and Sebastian.
James Marchese is a whistleblower who has received millions of dollars in rewards for tipping off authorities to corporate fraud. In 2007 James blew the whistle on his former company, Cell Theraputics, for allegedly defrauding Medicare. For his whistle blowing efforts he was awarded a $1.6 million judgment. About a decade later he was awarded $8.5 million for blowing the whistle on Bank of America for allegedly selling shoddy mortgage investments, a case that resulted in a then-record $16.5 billion settlement with the government.
In May 2005 James and Amber paid $1.7 million for a home in Colts Neck, New Jersey. The 6,700 square foot mansion sits on 4 acres of property.
