Last year, Slade Smiley threw Gretchen a surprise birthday party, earning himself the title of “the most amazing fiance ever.” While we wait to find out what Slade has planned for the birthday girl this year, we decided to take a look back at the former Real Housewives of Orange County star through the years.
Gretchen joined TheReal Housewives of Orange County in 2008, and while she’s been off the show for two years now, she’s still around. Gretchen is very much around – she can sniff out a room full of d-listers like no other – so there’s no shortage of photo ops. Take a walk down memory lane with us below.
Gretchen and Slade were hard at work yesterday, filming SOMETHING. Several of our photo outlets had sets of pictures of the Real Housewives of Orange County stars in Beverly Hills, but each had their own version of what was going on. One set was labeled as filming an infomercial for her Gretchen Christine handbags, one site said it was something for Ryan Seacrest and another said they were shopping. The only info Gretchen shared is that she was heading off to film (and that she was wearing her GC cosmetics).
So, here ya go. Gretchen (sans Slade) doing some filming in a jewelry store and with a horse. Draw your own conclusions!
So what’s a gal to do when she is forced to fork over a check of 22k to her alleged stalker ex? Well if you’re Gretchen Rossi of the Real Housewives of Orange County, you pick yourself up and get right back to what you do best — hosting parties and doing paid appearances.
Gretchen, 32, hosted some parties in Las Vegas this weekend. First she appeared at the JET mirage nightclub on Friday, and then donned a bikini the next day before hitting up the Bare Pool Lounge where she is said to have relaxed with her friends and family. More photos of Gretchen below.
In other news, Bravo has announced it is now casting for the sixth season of the OC Housewives. According to their casting call, they are looking for “outgoing, exciting, strong, focused women who reside in Orange County and want to share their lives with us.”
This seems to be a negotiating ploy done by Bravo every year whenever it comes time to negotiate with the current housewives, as they never really pick their new housewives from the casting calls. Case in point, last season’s new housewife Alexis Bellino, was not picked from a casting call. She was recommended to the producers by Gretchen.
With that being said, more on the casting call is below. Audition at your own risk:
“We are looking for women who are “Housewives” in the present-day sense. They should be lively and energetic, with defined opinions and views. The women need to have busy lives, be involved with the community, have a strong work ethic, and an active social calendar. Most of all, these women need to be enjoying “the good life.” We love women who are self-confident and happy with whom they are. The women, their significant others and families must be open to sharing their experiences with the producers and the television audience.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi and beau, Slade Smiley, shared some quality time at the Silver Spoon Beach House in Malibu this weekend. Luckily for us, there just happened to be some Paparazzi waiting to snap some shots of them together.
The 5th season of The Real Housewives of OC is currently being filmed.
The Gretchen Rossi soap opera is never ending as TheDirty website continues to publish some really embarrassing photos of her. Two of which are below. Gretchen seems to be staying strong as she re-emerged two days ago in Santa Monica. The staged above photo of her was taken as she was leaving a public restroom.
According to TMZ, Gretchen has gone to the police to report that some of the photos of her posted on TheDirty were taken from her stolen camera.
There are also rumors that the creep known as Jay Photoglou may be trying to leak some nude photos as well as a sex tape of Gretchen. Hopefully these are only rumors. I think she’s been through enough already, and should be very careful with whom she trusts in the future.
Below are some of less embarrassing photos of she and Jay making the rounds –
