Gretchen recently told KTLA that if she had to go back in time she would pass on signing up for the reality show that made Gretchen Christine Empires available to the world. Gretchen says "100% I wouldn't" sign on again. "From the outside when you first start you think it's gonna be a bowl of cherries, and it's not."
"It's really tough and to have so many people scrutinize every little aspect of your life and have such strong opinions," Gretchen elaborates. "There's haters and people tweeting you now and with all the social media people can have such quick access to you."
