Gretchen Rossi

Weeks after originally filing bankruptcy, RadarOnline is now reporting that Simon Barney’s bid has been rejected.

If you recall, the Real Housewives of Orange County star and estranged husband of Tamra Barney, filed bankruptcy back in December 2010. He petitioned for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, citing the nature of his debts as “primarily consumer debts incurred by an individual primarily for a personal, family, or household purpose.”

Simon revealed he had between 1-49 creditors, with assets and liabilities between $50,001 to $100,000. According to Radar, the bulk of Simon’s debt was in the form of credit cards, with a claim from Chase Bank to the tune of $20,640.00.

Chapter 13 doesn’t dismiss one’s debts but rather allows individuals to undergo a financial reorganization supervised by the courts. As for the reason Simon’s bankruptcy was rejected, it was because Simon “failed to file schedules, statements and/or plan for the bankruptcy.”

In other news, OC housewife Alexis Bellino recently celebrated her 34th birthday. Her pal and costar Gretchen Rossi helped throw her a small birthday bash and according to Alexis’ facebook, her husband Jim Bellino dropped by to surprise her.

Photos from Alexis’ birthday outing below, and the 6th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County returns March 6 on Bravo. Vicki Gunvalson tweeted a few days ago, “Is back in Orange County!!! Are you excited when we return in March?! Make sure you have your kleenex out!”

We’re guessing this is good news for Alexis Bellino and husband Jim Bellino.

The OC Register is now reporting the foreclosure auction scheduled for Monday for the Real Housewives of Orange County stars has been postponed yet again. The new auction date? Feb. 10.

Though the Register adds that there’s a good chance the auction will not take place at all as Jim managed to find a technical loophole file bankruptcy for his company Global Marine Inc. a few weeks ago. The company just manages to hold the title to his house.

The 6,400-square foot, 6-bedroom house is currently listed for sale at $3,395,000, a far cry from the $4.56 million they paid in August 2007. The debt on the home is reportedly $4.7 million. You can see pictures of the home here. The Bellinos defaulted on the home loan twice last year, though they now claim they are still negotiating with the bank.

In other OC news, two weeks after a tentative ruling, an OC judge has officially ruled that Gretchen Rossi should pay her ex Jay Photoglou $40,799 in legal fees. This is in addition to the $22,000 she was also forced to pay him last May.

Gretchen had tried to sue Jay for defamation but is now just suing for assault, battery, stalking and other alleged offenses. Jay had asked for $85,000 in attorney fees, but the judge only awarded him half because a good portion of the lawsuit against him is still ongoing.

Jay’s attorney is however calling this new ruling a win. “We just keep getting victories, and we look to get more of them if she makes the decision to keep going with this case,” his attorney, Bryan J. Freedman told E! News. “We’re pleased,” he continued. “They tried to challenge the amount, they were unsuccessful, and the judge made the right ruling. And I have no doubt she’ll appeal it, and we look forward to her losing that also and paying more attorney’s fees for yet another poor decision.”

Is Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi hoping for a spin-off show a la Bethenny Frankel?

According to a new report by the Hollywoodnews.com, that answer is yes! Gretchen and boyfriend Slade Smiley, who are rumored to have gotten engaged on the show’s upcoming season, reportedly want a spin-off show to showcase their relationship.

Gretchen joins the likes of Kim Zolciak, who also wanted her own spin-off show following the news that she was pregnant for her NFL beau. But as of now, it seems Bravo is not moving forward with any plans for a Gretchen or Kim spin-off.

Moving right along to the Real Housewives of OC season 6. After Bravo aired a sneak peek of the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of NYC over a week ago, many fans were left wondering what the heck happened to the OC season? Well, fret not as it seems all is well in Bravoland and Bravo is still planning to air to the OC Housewives season 6, but in February and no longer January as tentatively announced last year.

A fan asked Tamra Barney when the show would be airing on her facebook page and Tamra replied today, “I don’t know yet… I hear next month.”

Gretchen also had a similar answer in a recent video interview she posted on her site about the upcoming season – “So we just wrapped season 6 and they’re saying it’s going to air like January/February so we should see how the end result is,” she said. We say February as Bravo typically releases the press photos for the housewives at least a month before their season airs.

So what can we expect from Gretchen on the new season? Well according to Gretchen, she is all about promoting her businesses this time around. “This season for me was all about my businesses, my handbag line that I just launched (the Gretchen Christine Collection) and then I have my make up line (Gretchen Christine Beaute). And it’s really kinda about that and a little bit about my own turmoil of dealing with do I want to be married or not?” said Gretchen.

Interesting, and finally Gretchen posted some holiday photos of she and Slade on her personal site. One of the photos included Slade’s rarely seen older son Gavin, who appeared on the 1st season of the OC Housewives. Alexis Bellino also posted some photos of herself wearing her New Year’s Eve dress on her facebook page. Those photos are below -

More bad news for Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi.

Just months after being forced to pay over $22,000 in attorney fees to her ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou, RadarOnline is now reporting Orange County Superior Court Judge Gregory Munoz tentatively ruled on Wednesday that Jay be awarded fees and costs of $40,799.38 as a result of an anti-SLAPP motion he filed. The official ruling is expected to be finalized any day now.

This all stems from Jay’s lawsuit against Gretchen for libel, slander and five other counts. “We filed a motion for attorneys fees asking for $80,000 knowing, the truth is, the best we could do is probably get half that because we won half the motion,” Jay’s attorney Bryan J. Freedman told RadarOnline.

Gretchen, who filed a counter suit against Jay for defamation, suffered another legal blow two months ago when the same judge threw out a huge portion of her lawsuit against Jay, including claims of defamation, slander and portrayal in a false light.

Jay is also suing Gretchen for defamation. Jay’s case stems from Gretchen’s claims that she was never romantically involved with him though the countless number of photos leaked out by him show otherwise.

“But the good part is she’ll be writing a check for $40,000 or be held in contempt of court,” Jay’s attorney added.

In other OC news, it seems there’s yet another bankruptcy to report. According to Jezebel.com, Simon Barney, estranged husband of Tamra Barney, filed bankruptcy on December 2, 2010. While no additional details were reported, the site reveals it was chapter 13 bankruptcy. We will bring you more details as soon as we get our hands on it.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK GRETCHEN SHOULD HAVE TO PAY HER EX’S LEGAL FEES?

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.
