It seems the rumors of Gretchen Rossi dating OC housewives alum Slade Smiley might be true afterall as a reader of TheDirty website claims to have spotted the couple together at a car dealership. The reader says -
” I work at a car dealership, so the other night I’m at work and Gretchen and Slade walk in and shmoozed with our finance guy for a while and then left in a Range Rover. Well today they’re back and sitting in the finance guys office again. Gretchen is wearing some True Religion capris, a wife beater, and some killer cute heels.”
Gretchen Rossi filed a restraining order today against Jay Photoglou in the courts of Orange County. The reason being harassment. We say good for her, here’s to hoping Jay will disappear from the headlines. Gretchen needs to come out though and address these rumors. I do not believe hiding will make this go away, she’s still the fan favorite and admitting she lied and used bad judgment can only help her case in under these circumstances.
The OC Soap Opera is never ending when it comes to Gretchen Rossi. Radar Online has posted a 911 tape today in which Jay Photoglou (the man claiming to have been Gretchen’s boyfriend while she was engaged to Jeff) tells 911 operators that Gretchen had tried to commit suicide by overdosing on sleeping pills.
The most interesting part of this tape is that Gretchen could be heard saying in the background “I did not try to commit suicide at all” before taking the phone from Jay and telling the operators “he tried to break into my house and I finally opened the door. He decided to call 911…he’s been ringing the door bell for the last 25 minutes.”
Gretchen claimed they had a disagreement at the bar earlier, and then referred to Jay as her boyfriend during this call. This call occurred just days before the reunion was taped, and as you can recall Gretchen denied any romantic involvement with Jay during the Reunion show.
Jay had been working hard for the past few weeks to get this 911 tape made public. It seems his sleaziness and quest to ruin Gretchen is never ending.
The newest woman to join Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast is none other than Kandi Burruss. Kandi is a successful songwriter as well as former member of the R&B group Xscape.
Kandi is replacing DeShawn Snow on the new season of the show. The new season started filming weeks ago. It will be interesting to see how Kandi fits in with the other ladies. Will she be ringing in the drama? Only time will tell.
More money troubles for The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars as Sheree Whitfield is now being sued by her former lawyers for the amount of $87,000. These were the same lawyers representing Sheree in her divorce proceedings against her ex husband, Bob Whitfield. Sheree recently dropped that suit claiming he was now broke.
The complaint filed in February claims Sheree owes $69,343.98 in principal going back to May 10, 2006. Added to that is the amount of $17,832.93 deemed to be monthly interest on the owed amount. Seems like the ATL housewives are also feeling the pain of the recession. We previously reported Kim was recently accused of not paying her publicist, while Nene was evicted for her rented home last year. Season 2 is currently being filmed.
