Gretchen, 32, who skipped a crucial hearing last week and was threatened with an arrest warrant showed up to court with her boyfriend, Slade Smiley. This is all regarding the $18,000 amount awarded to her ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou regarding a slander suit he filed against her last year.
It seems Gretchen decided she would pay Jay off to shut him off, there is however a catch. Gretchen’s attorney requested the case be extended until Friday, so that they could give Jay his money in the from of a bond, and not a check.
Why you might ask? Well apparently the sleazeballJay owes the IRS $30,000 and Gretchen’s lawyer Gregory Brown, told the Judge that Jay shouldn’t get a penny of Gretchen’s payout. Instead, the money should go directly to the IRS.
Jay was not in court on Thursday and all parties are due again in court Friday. Must say, very smart move by Gretchen’s lawyer. Regardless of your thoughts on Gretchen, this Jay character is a scumbag and doesn’t deserve a penny from Gretchen or anyone.

After a few weeks of silence, it seems Tamra Barneyand Simon Barney are back at it again. Despite their past pleas and promises to make their impending divorce peaceful for the sake of their kids, their actions continue to tell a different story.
According to TheDirty website, Real Housewives of Orange County star Simon posted the following message on his facebook page this past weekend: “It was Tamra’s weekend to have the kids & she left & went to LA with Lynne, Frank & her Boy Toy. She was suppose to return Sunday but she called and said she got “Stuck” in LA. LA is only 45 min. away how do you get “Stuck”? But yet she had pics of them out at lunch & shopping yesterday.”
A quick look at Simon’s facebook page this morning shows no mention of the above post, but there’s a good chance he has since deleted it.
Tamra however didn’t take too well to the post/accusation and sent the site’s owner, Nik Richie (yes the same Nik Richie who just married former Bachelor winner Shayne Lamas), the following text message -
“Hi Nik, I just read the recent post about me going to L.A. It makes me sick that Simon stoops to such low levels to make me look bad. I’m not going to get into a public pissing match with this bitch! But it is all a lie to make me look bad. He is mad cause I was out having fun WITHOUT him. His control issues will never stop. I hope the man gets help soon.”
A screenshot of Tamra’s text message is below. Tamra and Simon both need to stop airing their dirty laundry and start acting like adults, at least for the sake of their kids.

According to TMZ, Josh was taken Central Men’s Jail in Santa Ana where he is being held without bail until a hearing on Monday.
This isn’t the first or second time Josh has been on the wrong side of the law. He was arrested back in June 2008 for possession of heroin and ecstasy and intent to sell, and then in July 2009 for possession of narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
Gretchen, star of the Real Housewives of Orange County, was scheduled to appear in Court last week in regards to the $18,000 a Judge awarded Jay last year regarding his claims that Gretchen defamed him during her attempt to get a restraining order against him. Interestingly enough, Gretchen made time to attend the launching of her milkshake at Millions of Milkshakes, just days before skipping out on her court date. What can we say? The girl has her priorities in order.
The hearing Gretchen skipped out on was to determine how much money she makes and how many assets she has. The Judge in that case however gave Gretchen a week to get her act together or else the bench warrant will be changed to an arrest warrant.
Someone needs to tell Gretchen its not defamation if everything the guy came out saying turned out to be true. Despite being a total scumbag, Jay’s tales about being in a relationship with Gretchen while she was still engaged to Jeff Beitzel have turned out to be accurate. There have been numerous photos leaked of the two, likely by Jay himself, that show them kissing and even shows Gretchen with a ring finger tattoo of Jay’s name.
With that being said, Gretchen likely doesn’t have a cast against Jay. Yes he’s a douchebag for trashing her in the press, but that doesn’t constitute defamation.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK GRETCHEN HAS A CASE AGAINST JAY PHOTOGLOU?
According to Radar, Gretchen failed to show up for a court appearance Thursday thus resulting in the warrant. Gretchen’s reason for her court appearance? Well it all ties back to the $18,000 awarded to her ex,Jay Photoglou, in a defamation lawsuit he filed against her last year.
Gretchen was supposed to be in court for a debtor examination related to money she owes Jay. This all started after Gretchen unsuccessfully tried to take out a restraining order against Jay last year, alleging he harassed and threatened to kill her, her current boyfriend, Slade Smiley, and her dog. Jay, then in turn decided to sue her.
A lawyer from the firm Gretchen hired showed up in court and asked for a continuance because Gretchen’s lawyer was unavailable,” Jay’s lawyer, Orlando Castano told RadarOnline. “Gretchen didn’t show up and the judge then issued a bench warrant for her arrest, holding it to give them the opportunity for her to come to court. She must show up next Thursday at 8:30 a.m.”
“She is just making Jay jump through hoops to get his money he deserves,” Jay’s attorney tells E! News. “We know she has the money. She’s just drawing this out.”
But we will likely not be seeing Gretchen in handcuffs anytime soon as the Judge in the case held the bench warrant for a week, meaning the Gretchen will remain free, for now at least.
Gretchen, 32, joined the ranks of Miley Cirus, Kim Kardashian, Pamela Anderson and Lindsay Lohan when she created her own ‘Naughty Blonde Ambition‘ milkshake which includes Vanilla frozen yogurt, Reese’s Pieces, Heath Bar, Hersey’s Chocolate Syrup, Whipped Cream with a cherry on top. Gretchen created the shake with one thought in mind… “Naughty!”…In calories, that is.
Gretchen was also joined by Bravo’s Chad Rogers of Million Dollar Listing who came to support her. More photos of that below. In the meantime, check out the video of Gretchen as she shows us the proper way to down a milkshake. She also discusses Hollywood infidelities, her makeup line, her song and donating some of the proceeds to the Leukemia Foundation.

Gretchen Rossi, 32, took some time out of her very busy schedule of setting up funds and foundations, and gave an interview to Celebritybabyscoop. In the interview, Gretchen discusses Slade, her desire to have kids, her make-up line (which is now up and running again), and being like a step mom to boyfriendSlade Smiley’s children.
Excerpts from Gretchen’s interview below -
CBS: You’ve been dating Slade Smiley for months now. Do you consider yourself stepmom to his sons?
GR: “Yes, I am stepmom in some ways. Both of Slade’s sons are great. His oldest son Gavin is turning 20 this weekend and we’re celebrating with him at Disneyland which will be so much fun. And Slade’s youngest son Grayson is so amazing.”
CBS: Grayson has been fighting inoperable brain cancer since preschool. How is he doing now?
GR: “Grayson is doing as well as can be expected. His condition is always up in the air. He’s been through so many surgeries and procedures, it’s hard to keep count. But through it all, he’s had the most amazing attitude and outlook on life. You’ll never see him down and out about his condition. It’s been really hard on Slade over the years. We can only keep hoping and praying for his health.”
CBS: How do Slade and his ex co-parent? Do they get along well?
GR: “Grayson lives with his mom and they live close to the hospital in case of any emergencies. They live father away than we’d like, but he needs to be in close proximity to the hospital.
Slade and his ex both have Grayson’s best interest at heart, although it’s been hard at times. For the most part, things are good between them and they make sure that his health and treatments come before anything.
We wish he lived closer though since we’d love to see him more often.”
CBS: Do you hope to have your own children one day? Are you and Slade talking about having kids together?
GR: “I joke to Slade that I want a football team of kids! We’ve definitely talked about having kids, but I’m old fashioned and I’d like to be married before the kids come into the picture. So we’ll see what happens, but I definitely want my own kids one day.”
CBS: Tell us about your new makeup line.
GR: “I’m so excited about my new makeup line called Gretchen Christine Beaute. A few years ago, I was struggling financially just like so many other people and I wasn’t able to buy the expensive makeup I loved. So I decided to create my own line of makeup that was just as good as the expensive stuff but affordable to everyone.
We have so many amazing products to choose from. The eyeshadows are so smooth and luxurious. They come in the nicest packaging. And everything is just so affordable. I’m really proud of the products and have been working night and day at creating the products.”
CBS: You also star on Real Housewives of Orange County. You’re busy!
“Yes, I’ve been working non-stop lately, but it’s been good. I also wrote and recorded Nothing Without You which you can download off my site. I love doing it all and I’m always working on other exciting projects for the future.”
Gretchen was also honored Thursday evening with the launching of her very own ‘Blonde Ambition’ milkshake at Millions of Milkshakes in Hollywood. We will bring you photos of that when they become available.
Perhaps there’s good reason for that, as Alexis new facebook photos have a lot of viewers speculating on whether the OC Housewife has had more work done. Alexis has always been forthcoming about having gone under the knife in the past, admitting to a boob job and regular botox.
The first photo on the left is Alexis’s current profile photo on her facebook page, while the photo on the right is what she looked like before, and even her fans are commenting on the very noticeable change in her new look. And at first one might thing it was just some overzealous airbrushing, but a look at other new photos posted by Alexis shows a different looking Alexis as well. More of those photos are posted below.
Interestingly, Alexis announced earlier this year that she is now doing consulting work for a plastic surgeon at www.cosmeticare.com. This is very reminiscence of the whole Heidi Montag story, not sure why Alexis felt the need to get more work done, if she actually did, because she looked just fine before in my opinion.
