Gretchen Rossi - Flashback Friday

Gretchen Rossi is celebrating her 37th birthday today.

Last year, Slade Smiley threw Gretchen a surprise birthday party, earning himself the title of “the most amazing fiance ever.” While we wait to find out what Slade has planned for the birthday girl this year, we decided to take a look back at the former Real Housewives of Orange County star through the years. 

Gretchen joined The Real Housewives of Orange County in 2008, and while she’s been off the show for two years now, she’s still around. Gretchen is very much around – she can sniff out a room full of d-listers like no other – so there’s no shortage of photo ops. Take a walk down memory lane with us below.
