RadarOnline reported that Gretchen was served with legal papers in the middle of a fashion show. The man behind this is Jay Photoglou, the legal papers apparently has to do with Gretchen not paying the $18,000 that was awarded to him by a Judge.
In other news, Gretchen’s make up line – Gretchen Christine Beaute seems to now be defunct. First a commenter on this site posted that the make up she was selling on her site was identical (down to the names and colors) to that on LadyBurd.com, which happens to be a manufacturer for make-up. Gretchen’s site had the same exact photos and names for her eyeshadow collection. She never even bothered to change the names of the shades.
This might not seem like a big deal, but it does in this case because Gretchen was shown on the TV show consulting with her makeup artist pretending to come up coming up with the colors and shades for her make up line, when in reality she was just reselling the already made products.
Days after this hit the web, Gretchen’s site started showing her products as being sold out, until she finally took down the site, posting the following - “Gretchen Christine Beaute is in the process of adding some additional website enhancements…please be patient with us while we make these improvements.”
She also posted the following on her twitter – “Adding new enhancements to Gretchen Christine Beaute’s website this week! Lots to work on after our soft launch a month ago!” So now, it was simply a “soft launch.”
And finally some of her customers to her facebook to complain. Apparently, the paypal payment option was in Slade Smiley’s name, meaning the make up payments were going into Slade’s paypal account. Not sure why this was a problem, but it seems some of her fans hate Slade so much, to the point that they would rather the money not go into his paypal account.
