Gretchen Rossi

Gretchen Rossi has lost yet another court battle to ex Jay Photoglou reports E! Online.

According to E!, a judge dismissed a large portion of the Real Housewives of Orange County star’s defamation lawsuit against Jay last Thursday.

The judge struck down Gretchen’s claims of defamation, libel and portrayal in a false light after determining that her lawyers hadn’t offered up enough evidence to prove that Jay was lying about the two of them being in a romantic relationship while she was engaged to Jeff Beitzel, who died of cancer in 2008.

Gretchen is however still allowed to pursue prior claims of assault, battery, stalking, breach of contract, conversion, intentional emotional distress, intentional interference with contractual relations and intentional interference with prospective economic relations against Jay.

Gretchen’s attorney Gregory G. Brown says he is considering an appeal. This ruling comes months after Gretchen was forced to fork over $24,000 to cover Jay’s legal fees after he took her to court for defamation.

In other OC news, Gretchen spoke out on castmate Vicki Gunvalson’s divorce to husband of 16 years Donn Gunvalson.

Gretchen told UsWeekly magazine, “I was truly sorry to hear the news.” She added of Vicki, “She’s been having a really tough couple of days.”

Gretchen shares she sent Vicki a text message of support after the announcement. “I’ve talked to a few people in the inner circle and it’s a bad situation for her right now.” According to Gretchen, the split came as a surprise. “It kind of took us all by surprise, because from what I knew…things were going well, so I don’t really know what happened. It’s very sad.”

More details are being revealed about the Saturday night showdown between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Tamra Barney and Jeana Keough, and it seems Jeana wasn’t exactly an innocent victim in the incident.

In fact according to RadarOnline and E! News, Jeana was the one who provoked the physical altercation with Tamra by trying to push her into a pool unsuccessfully.

RadarOnline reports that Tamra was furious with certain comments Jeana had been making about her in the press, comments which she felt were inaccurate, so she tried to hand Jeana a cease and desist letter from her lawyer at a wrap party for the Bravo show. The party took place at castmate’s Vicki Gunvalson’s house according to E! News.

That didn’t go so well according to Radar. “Jeana said to Tamra, ‘Youre’ a b—- and I’m gonna throw you’re a– in the pool,’” a witness tells Radar. “Then she pushed Tamra, as if she was trying to throw her in the pool.”

This then led to Tamra throwing a glass of wine in Jeana’s face, and as Tamra walked away, Jeana attempted to throw her wine at Tamra, but the drink ended up missing her, instead soaking another woman’s white dress. That woman reportedly grabbed Jeana and pushed her up against a wall.

It wasn’t over yet folks as Tamra then encountered Jeana and a male friend in the driveway as she tried to leave the party. Jeana’s friend then took a wine glass and threw it at Tamra’s feet, with glass shattering and flying everywhere.

Bravo’s cameras were reportedly on hand to film the event.

In other news, the AbsurdToSublime site is reporting that Gretchen Rossi is now engaged. According to the site, her boyfriend of a year and a half, Slade Smiley, proposed to her Saturday night during the filming of the Season 6 Real Housewives of Orange County Finale.

If true, no official announcement yet from either party, though Gretchen did post a photo of she and Slade with their parents over the weekend. We’re guessing the announcement will likely come from a major media outlet like Bethenny Frankel did with PEOPLE magazine when she got engaged. The site also reports that Slade recently had his vasectomy reversed.

Peggy Tanous and husband Micah Tanous

The new season of the Real Housewives of Orange County has started filming, and RadarOnline is now reporting there is a new housewife on the block!

Pictured above is Peggy Tanous and husband Micah Tanous on their wedding day. Radar is reporting the Alexis Bellino clone Peggy has joined the cast and has even began filming scenes with the other housewives.

Oddly enough, Peggy is said to be a friend of Alexis Bellino with insiders describing her as being “truthful and blunt” and someone “who always tell it the way it is.”

Peggy’s husband, Micah, is described as being an internet entrepreneur. Peggy and Micah have two daughters together.

Radar also adds that Simon Barney, the estranged husband of Tamra Barney, will no longer be appearing on the show. Tamra’s boyfriend Eddie Judge will however be on the show.

According to Radar, Peggy will be joining existing cast members Vicki Gunvalson, Gretchen Rossi, Tamra Barney and Alexis Bellino. Lynne Curtin’s name was left out of the list, could she be off the show? Only time will tell.

It seems Gretchen Rossi, star of the Real Housewives of Orange County is sticking by her man’s side no matter what.

The latest in the never ending drama of Slade Smiley’s child support case is a new report detailing what took place during Slade’s hearing on Friday. RadarOnline reports that Slade, 41, owes between $84,962 and $110,000 in back child support to Michelle Arroyo, mother of his son Grayson Arroyo-Smiley, 10, who suffers from a rare form of brain cancer.

The drama ensued when Gretchen’s ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou, who is not a stalker by any means, decided to show up to the court hearing for some strange reason.  Is it safe to assume Jay has no job and has lots of free time to show up to court cases that have absolutely nothing to do with him? This made Slade furious and authorities had to step in to keep the parties separate.

Slade is then said to have asked the judge to have Jay removed the courtroom, which led to all parties not directly involved in the case being asked to leave court, including Gretchen.

And according to the OC Register, Slade who is said to be a former insurance salesman and male model, admitted in court he had received some payments for this appearance on the OC Housewives.  This is despite Slade’s previous claims that he had zero income and zero expenses.  Slade also admitted he had the funds paid to Gretchen and then re-directed to him to avoid mandatory deductions.

Slade has asked the Judge to reduce his child support payments, and is due back in Court in September.

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.”

Despite numerous attempts to stall and delay, Gretchen Rossi ran out of options last week and had to fork over a check to her sleazebag ex Jay Photoglou.

According to RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Orange County star finally handed over a check in the amount of $22,375.05 to Jay, after she lost a judgment to him and then skipped a court date for a debtor’s examination.

No word yet on whether or not Jay will actually see any of that money as Gretchen and her attorney alleged Jay owed the IRS over $30,000, which might explain why he has spent the last year and a half trying to capitalize on his past relationship with Gretchen.

Despite the fact that Gretchen made her payment, the drama didn’t end there, as Jay’s attorney Orlando Castano posted the following message on this twitter account:

So today I made Gretchen Rossi fork over $22,375.05 to my client. She had 2 law firms & 12 attys filing motions and still got beat Twice I’ve kicked their arses.”

Gretchen’s boyfriend Slade Smiley saw this and of course decided to reply, posting the following:

“Your funny man. Do you really believe your own BS? You arent getting paid, Jay isnt getting paid. We chose to pay the state.”

Shall we post the documents from ur brief where u tried 2 mislead the judge. Our docs where valid not urs. We decided the day.”

The new article by RadarOnline, however clearly shows a picture of Gretchen’s check, paid out to Jay’s attorney. I’m guessing once Jay’s attorney gets his share, the  small remainder of the money will go to the state, that is if the story about Jay owing the IRS over $30,000 is true.

Still pending is Gretchen’s new defamation lawsuit against Jay.
