Days after Gretchen
sort of made a valid point called Tamra a hypocrite for her actions on the Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra is now responding. In a new interview, Tamra refers to Gretchen as being “obsessed” with her and also makes reference to her legal issues and dead-beat boyfriend Slade Smiley.
“Gretchen’s constantly bashing me in interviews is nothing more than a clever diversion, created so the attention is not on the three lawsuits in which she is currently involved and the problems with her [boyfriend Slade‘s] past-due child support,” Tamra tells E! Online via an email she sent to them. “She has NO knowledge of the issues I had with Jeana [Keough], yet she constantly finds reasons to talk about me in interviews, on the show and on her Bravo blogs.”
Tamra continued, “She is nothing more than obsessed with me…You would think with all her legal problems, she would use her time more wisely. I truly feel sorry for her and hope that she lets go of the anger she has in her heart as I did for Jeana Keough.”
Ouch. Tamra also promises all of her drama with Gretchen will be addressed on the upcoming 2-part reunion show.
And speaking of Gretchen’s legal drama, she scored a small victory in court this week against her ex Jay Photoglou. A week after requesting a protective order to keep Jay from talking to the press about certain issues, Gretchen was granted most of it.
A judge granted a protective order which prohibits both Gretchen and Jay from discussing the “sexual history of either party, either party’s financial information,” plus home and cellular telephone numbers and home addresses. As we speculated last week, this order was likely requested by Gretchen to prevent her financial information from leaking to the press during a deposition. Gretchen was ordered to fork over $40,000 to Jay for his legal fees earlier this year and has yet to.
In fact Jay’s attorney Bryan Freedman confirms a deposition is indeed in the works. “Our next move is to take Rossi’s deposition within the next few weeks,” said Bryan.
