Well, well, well… who didn't see it coming that Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley are putting their wedding on hold until they get a limited episode wedding special! OK – maybe I added that last part!
The couple that has been seen having major issues on Real Housewives of Orange County shares they haven't been getting along so well as of late… #PublicityStunt?
Gretchen admits they are at an impasse about what they want for their future. She: wants a sperm donor and a spinoff where she can play up the whole single mom thing! That's a new one for Bravo, right?! He: wants a wedding and a spinoff about said wedding.
“We are not full into planning because we’ve been a little bit fighting,” Gretchenconfesses to Celebuzz. “I want a baby and he wants a wedding.”
I cannot believe I am about to type the following sentences. I mean if you could see my face right now, you would see me with my mouth hanging open. Gretchen Rossi has some lofty, lofty ambition, y'all!
"We want to be Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie! That's the goal,” Gretchengushed to Life & Style. “At this point, we want to have, like, 26 kids.” Oh rllllyyy… well, perhaps she needs to borrow some money from Angie and Brad if that's her plan cause um… well, you know…
Alexis Bellino…she'd be one of my favorites on Real Housewives of Orange County if she just wasn't so wishy-washy. While she's inadvertently hilarious with her one-liners and her sometimes holier than thou attitude, I feel like Alexis is finally learning the ropes. Latch onto the Alpha…and do it better than Gretchen Rossi did! We all know that Alexis has forged a deep friendship (at least in her naive and misguided mind) with Vicki Gunvalson, and she's convinced it's the real deal. Did she not watch the seasons before she started on RHOC? I do feel that Alexis tries her best to be genuine, and I hope for her sake that she is able to stay on Vicki's good side!
Of course, as she learns how to play the Bravo game, Alexis is also learning how to keep the media buzzing. Will she or won't she? Alexis is staying mum about whether she'll be returning for another season of RHOC. This all sounds strangely reminiscent, doesn't it?
If you're not watching Tamra's OC Wedding (and chances are, you're not), you still can't get away from it! Tamra Barney, the self-proclaimed "hottest housewife," is banking on that determination while sharing more about her wedding planning insanity…namely why frenemies Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino made an appearance at her big day. Duh! Paycheck by Bravo!
Speaking to the Wet Paint, Tamra shares why she chose Heather Dubrow and Vicki Gunvalson as bridesmaids, saying, "Heather and I are really close. We have been from the minute we met each other. Vicki and I go up and down, but we always seem to make up. I couldn’t imagine her not being up there with me."
Vicki has been trying to do the whole Bravo Home Shopping Network thing by expanding her empire to include one of her favorite things – no, not full lovetanks or deadbeat losers, but BOOZE! Unfortunately all is not working out. The short-lived 'Vicki's Vodka', which she promoted on this season's Real Housewives of Orange County, has been plagued by scandal and lawsuits.
Vicki's business partner, a professional poker player named Robert Williamson III, has sued her not once but twice(!) over allegations that she attempted to defraud him and was not serious about making the brand a success. All the problems originate with Brooks Ayers, it seems, who is also being sued by Robert.
Well Vicki has decided to simply pull the plug on Vicki's Vodka! "This lawsuit arises from the business decision of Ms. Gunvalson and her business partner, Michael Nicholson, an expert in blending and selling distilled spirits, to terminate the Vicki’s Vodka brand,” Vicki's attorney Paul W. Reidl explained Radar Online. Robert is also suing Michael.
Oh good lord! After agreeing to drop the FIRST lawsuit he filed against Vicki Gunvalson, her Vicki's Vodka partner, Robert Williamson III, is now filing a new lawsuit against Vicki and her on-again/off-again loser Brooks Ayers! Is this guy looking for publicity or what?!
Robert, a professional poker player and partner in Vicki's Vodka, is dragging the Real Housewives of Orange County star back to court alleging she breached a settlement agreement they had reached in order to end the initial lawsuit. Robert filed his new suit on Friday and he's including Brooks in this latest action as well. If you recall, Brooks is still being sued under the FIRST round of litigation Robert initiated.
In the new suit, Robert accuses Vicki of many of the same offenses as in the original suit: committing "fraud, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, breach of covenant of good faith dealings, misrepresented and unjustly enriched herself and intentionally inflicted emotional distress on him."
Despite the revelations that aired in the RHOC Secrets Revealed episode (namely that toothless Greek god is real!) Vicki said her summer was great and that she returned to Greece! She did, huh? Not to shell out for more dental procedures but on an insurance trip with Briana Culberson and her grandson Troy.
Alexis, Jim and the kids hit the seas the last week of August and are now sharing the photos with her Instagram followers. Above she captioned, "Our first cruise pic! #disneycruise #bellinofamilyvacation #tonightsgonnabeagoodnight."
The Bellinos cruised to St. Maarten and St. Thomas and enjoyed a little swimming, exploring and even visited a butterfly farm with the kiddos. I'm betting THIS vacation was a relaxing one and nothing like those RHOC vacays….
