Amber Marchese's Blog: Breaking Down My Crazy Day with My Doctors

Amber Marchese, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey , is blogging about her second battle with cancer for PEOPLE. After surviving breast cancer in 2009, she discovered a lump, which turned out to be cancerous, in her right breast in April. Marchese will share updates on her treatment and how she is coping with this second round of the deadly disease with prayer, a positive outlook and the help of her family.

Hello beautiful friends and family!! As I reread my blog last week I realized I have a little confession to make. Not one week from writing in my blog about "not extracting true happiness from material belongings," I turn to Jim and said, "I'm done with this home, I want a bigger home and on the water!" Yup, blurted right out how "this is not my dream home" in front of several good friends over dinner. I had another relapse, but this one had nothing too due with my health, thank God. I immediately realized what a brat I sounded like when I saw the appalled look on my friends' faces. We all started to crack up, and heads were shaking that that came out of my mouth. After all, I was picked for Real Housewives of New Jersey for a reason.

My friend says that there are "like 30 different Ambers inside my head." He jokes around, saying, "Amber number 12 has come out to play today or is this number 8?" I have to agree with him. My father was the same way. There is: cowgirl Amber, farmer Amber, surfer Amber, metropolitan Amber, mommy mode Amber, party mode Amber, 80's rock-star Amber, classical jazz Amber, hip/hop and R&B Amber, RHONJ Amber, Devout Christian Amber, Amber the good wife, Amber the bad wife, and the list goes on. I call it a passion for life and a drive to try out all flavors of life. Honestly, there is not much about life I do not like. I welcome all walks of life, all cultures, and all various types of people.

Victoria Siegel was in love. She was a free spirit who preferred to go barefoot and rescued "the ugliest dogs," as her mother puts it, from the pound. She struggled in class but graduated high school, and she had big dreams: opening a sushi restaurant, designing T-shirts, pursuing her passions for poetry, music and art. Victoria was also addicted to prescription drugs, and on June 6, she died of an overdose at the age of 18.

If there's a lesson to be learned here, it's watch your step.

Kelly Ripa debuted her latest accessories – a boot and crutches – for her broken foot on Live! with Kelly and Michael on Thursday morning. The petite star, 44, apparently got off on the wrong foot during a dance class, which resulted in four bones breaking off.

"I'm like, 'Maybe nobody will notice,' " Ripa told her co-host Michael Strahan. "My dream was that nobody would notice."
