Gretchen Rossi at Perez Hilton Party

Has OC Darling Gretchen Rossi been caught in another lie? Rumors hit the web last week that the Real Housewivew of Orange County star was lying about creating her make up line and more importantly, she was accused of lying about the Jeff Beitzel Foundation she claimed to have created on behalf of her late fiance, Jeff Beitzel.

There was only one problem, no one could find out any proof that such a foundation existed, causing Gretchen to go on her facebook page and defend herself. She claimed, “The Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund is with the Leukemia Society in O.C.! People can make donations 2 this fund directly by writing “For the Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund.”

There’s only one problem however. The Jeff Beitzel Foundation does in fact NOT exist with the Leukemia Soceity in O.C. How do we know that? Well that comes directly from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. One of our savvy readers, Help Me Rhonda, decided to email the Leukemia Society, inquiring about the foundation, and the response she received is below -

“It appears there was a misunderstanding about the establishment of a “Jeff Bietzel Memorial Fund.” or a “Jeff Bietzel Foundation.” The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has not set up a fund in Jeff Bietzel’s name. Any donations sent to LLS in honor of Jeff Bietzel will be used to support LLS’s mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.”

So basically the Jeff Beitzel Foundation Gretchen claimed to have created does NOT exist. And Gretchen has claimed via multiple media outlets that she created this foundation.

Back in January, the OC star wrote on her bravo blog“Download the song on iTunes, and proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Jeff Beitzel Foundation I started in Jeff’s honor.”

And then the following was also written on her myspace page“Gretchen has decided that she will be donating proceeds from the release of this song to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Jeff Beitzel Foundation she has created.

Note the key words used, she claimed she “started” the Jeff Beitzel Foundation in her Bravo blog, and then claimed she “created” the foundation on her myspace page. Not sure why Gretchen feels the need to lie or embellish something like this. She should have just said, proceeds from her song will be donated to the Leukemia Society in honor in Jeff. This isn’t the first time the OC star has been caught in a lie. She first denied ever being romantically involved with Jay Photoglou, before incriminating photos of the duo were leaked all over the web.

UPDATE #2 – The following statement was issued by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) :

“In conversations that took place last year between Gretchen Rossi and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) there was  a  miscommunication   concerning the establishment of a Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund.   A  fund  has  not been set up by LLS  and we apologize for any embarrassment this may have caused Miss Rossi.  The Leukemia  & Lymphoma Society  will work with Miss Rossi     to identify a researcher who will be named in Jeff Beitzel’s memory.  The funds previously raised and any additional funds , such as those that may be forthcoming from the sale of Miss Rossi’s song  on iTunes,   will be used to help support the LLS mission.   LLS appreciates the  effort put forth by Miss Rossi.”

Bethenny Frankel Wedding PictureJill Zarin NYC

Ok Magazine, which bought the exclusive rights to Bethenny Frankel’s wedding photos, has released the first picture of Bethenny as a bride. A bigger photo of this is below.

According to reports, the Real Housewives of NYC star wore a beautiful Amsale wedding gown during her wedding to Jason Hoppy at the prestigious Manhattan Four Seasons.  With good publicity also comes bad press, and the latest is a report claiming OK magazine only paid Bethenny $10,000 for her wedding photos.

The report claims, Bethenny’s people were requesting $100,000 from magazines wanting to publish the photos, but apparently no one was willing to pay that much so she had to settle for $10,000, and not the $25,000 fee that had been widely reported. Bethenny’s rep however denies the story, saying both the $10,000 and $25,000 amounts are false.

In other news, Bethenny’s former BFF Jill Zarin appeared on The Insider show yesterday and spoke out on the demise of her friendship with Bethenny, and not being invited to her wedding.  Jill even went as far as to refer to Bethenny’s wedding as “circus like.”

“I guess I wasn’t surprised I wasn’t invited, but I was hurt,” Jill says of Bethenny’s wedding, later adding, “I felt bad on Sunday. It was a rough day.”

And how did she feel about seeing pictures of her co-stars Alex McCord and Ramona Singer at the wedding? “I didn’t think that they were real friends in real life, but you know what I just think the whole thing was just a little bit circus like,” sniped Jill. Ouch.

As for why their friendship ended, Jill said, “For me it became toxic, she just started to get mean and go below the belt.”

According to the DailyBeast, all 12 episodes of the first season have been shot, including the one that shows the infamous party crash. And the DailyBeast confirms what we have suspected all along, that it would be practically impossible for Bravo to edit out the Salahis as they had been filming for months, before their infamous party crashing incident.

The DC series is expected to debut in July, right after the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and yes the Bravo cameras were on hand to capture the party crashing moment.

A source close to the series reveals that Bravo executives were more than relieved to learn the Salahis wouldn’t be prosecuted, though the incident did cause presidential Social Secretary Desiree Rogers to lose her job.

Bravo is apparently trying to keep this story under wraps for moment. The Salahis are however expected to do an interview with Today Show’s Matt Lauer on May 27.

Gretchen Rossi OC

It seems Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi has been made aware of some rumors and comments that have made their way to the world wide web this week.

The first being that the Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund, a memorial fund she created on behalf of her late fiance Jeff Beitzel, does not exist.  Gretchen had also previously said all the proceeds from her song, “Nothing Without You,” would go to Jeff’s memorial fund. However some readers had accused the OC star of making up the memorial fund, citing they could not find much information on it.  This is what Gretchen had to say about that on her Facebook page -

“I want to address a ridiculous rumor being posted. The Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund is with the Leukemia Soceity in O.C.! People can make donations 2 this fund directly by writing “For the Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund”, Just as the proceeds from my song will be donated 2 this same fund! Someone stating that it doesn’t exist is ignorant, direspectful, and incorrect! People should stop spreading false & malicious rummors.”

Evidently Gretchen does not believe in spell check. We also reported this week that Gretchen had mysteriously taken down her make-up website citing sold out inventory, though this happened just days after certain readers pointed out that some of Gretchen’s make up products were identical to that listed on Ladyburd.com, a make-up manufacturer website.  Gretchen posted the following regarding her make-up website -

“Wow! Gretchen CHristine Beaute completely sold out of 3 months stock in just 3 weeks! Thanks to everyone for your support! We have reordered everything and are anxiously awaiting more product so we can continue to take your future orders! Thanks for the support of Gretchen Christine Beaute! www.shopgretchenchristine.com”

Kim Zolciak

Kim Zolciak, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta has had a change of heart, and is now admitting her long rumored lesbian relationship with DJ Tracy Young.

Kim gave an exclusive interview to Life&Style magazine in which she admits she is bisexual.  She also appears on this week’s cover of the magazine.

This is all the more interesting considering Kim denied having a romantic relationship with DJ Tracy just this month, even telling numerous media outlets that she was back with the still married Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar.

According to Kim, the reason she lied about denied her relationship with DJ Tracy was because she wasn’t ready to come out.  We can only hope Tracy is well aware of Kim’s pathological ways.

Excerpts from Kim’s interview with Life&Style is below -

L&S: Can you pinpoint the moment when things became romantic?
Kim: There were sparks, but [physically] it was a gradual situation. Tracy made the first move. Our first kiss was passionate and exciting.

L&S: Were you ever tempted to deny your relationship with Tracy?
Kim: No. I’ve never denied anything. I don’t lie. I’m not embarrassed by anything I’ve ever done in my life. But I wasn’t ready to discuss it when the story broke. I hadn’t even had the chance to talk to my family about it. It was so unfair.

L&S: Do you feel you’re giving a voice to other bisexual parents?
Kim: I’m among the millions of parents who have been in a gay or lesbian relationship. It hasn’t been an easy road lately, but I feel there are no mistakes in my life. Everything happens for a reason. To have the opportunity to speak for myself and to have people understand what I’m going through is really special. I myself was confused and scared at first. Being able to speak from my heart and get this all out, it’s a huge relief for me.

You can read more about Kim’s story in the latest issue of Life&Style Weekly.
