Gretchen and her sidekick (aka fiance) Slade Smiley headed up to Vegas for a little fun. The reality stars were at the grand opening of Sapphire Pool & Day Club at Sapphire Las Vegas. I hope she hung on to that giant rock (aka engagement ring) for dear life when (if) she was in the pool!
TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF GRETCHEN'S WHITE BIKINI?
Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Alexis Bellino is this season's comeback kid on Real Housewives of Orange County. Who would have thought?! Alexis candidly admitted that last season's drama led her to seek therapeutic help and whatever her therapist is doing (or prescribing) it seems to be working. She needs to be giving that phone number out liberally around the Bravo offices!
In a new interview with Us Weekly, Alexis confirms she did seriously consider leaving last season but felt she needed to set an example for her kids (and earn that OC paycheck!) by returning. Alexis also talks her relationships with the women and reacts to Tamra Barney's embarrassing display of hostessing at the CUT You To The Core Fitness opening!
Oh and guess what?! She made it through the entire interview without mentioning the b-word once. No not, b-i-t-c-h, but bullying! Duh!
Real Estalker recently unleashed some juicy details on Lady Lydia's new home. And allegedly she is renting just for filming purposes. "During filming" The McLaughlins "occupied a luxuriously appointed rented residence in the exclusive Ritz Cove enclave in Dana Point, the same affluent beach side enclave where HousewifeAlexis Bellino and her husband Jim leased a house during the taping of the seventh season."
Immediately we are transported to a deep underground tunnel of despair where Tamra is sitting at the head of the table deliberating over can stay and who can go. Lucky Alexis was plucked from group and exiled. Her angel wings spread and her golden halo glowed as she floated above the riff-raff into the parking lot. Gretchen Rossi clapped with glee as if the heathens were being eaten by lions in the Colosseum.
Lydia scampered after her; jumping on Starlite and flying towards the Tunnel of Light. Don't let them rob you of a colorful world! I would have taken off my shoes, hitched up my maxi dress, and ran screaming from that den of horrors up the delivery van loading dock and right into the limo to start guzzling champagne from the bottle.
Since it was Vicki who brought Alexis we were treated to several segments of Tarma complaining about Vicki forcing her to allow Alexis to destroy their presence with her fakeness. Anyway, Vicki says she just wanted to bring unity to the divided group.
"My intentions were 'pure' and I had no ill intent inviting Alexis," Vickiwrites in her Bravo blog. "I feel terrible that it ended up the way it did. In hindsight, I might have done things differently if I knew what the outcome would be."
In fact Gretchen has even been spotted on numerous occasions wearing an engagement ring that looks eerily similar to the one she allegedly just received from Slave this month! Even more interesting is that Gretchen's ring looks eerily similar to Slade's former fiance Jo de la Rosa's ring. More on that below. But first have the Real Housewives of Orange County stars been lying about being engaged for years? We think so!
Yesterday a source informed us that Gretchen and Slade attended the RHOC season 6 wrap party and announced they were engaged. And Gretchen was wearing a canary diamond engagement ring. Photo proof below!
