Real Housewives of Orange County

Gretchen Rossi - Flashback Friday

Gretchen Rossi is celebrating her 37th birthday today.

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 The Real 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.



This season of Real Housewives of Orange County may be basically over, but Meghan King Edmonds still has a lot to say – mostly about Vicki Gunvalson.

Meghan shared in her Bravo blog that she’s happy for viewers to see her and Jim they way they really are for once.  “Part One of the reunion was pretty low-key, but now Part Two has started to dive into some more of the drama! Yikes! The best part about this week was that Jimmy joined me on the couch and I’m really glad the audience got to see a more relaxed and engaging side of my husband and our marriage. It’s kind of crazy to see us portrayed the way we actually are every day for the first time on TV!”

Tamra Vs. Vicki at RHOC reunion

On part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion Vicki Gunvalson was outed for making a comment about Tamra Judges parenting and custody battle

During Tamra’s sex tape release party, Tamra, while was wearing a lace, see-thru catsuit while thrusting and gyrating with a strap-on. Vicki joked to Heather Dubrow, “She pretty much lost custody of one, she doesn’t want to lose two more,” Vicki’s comment referenced Tamra’s ex-husband Simon taking Tamra to court, in part, claiming her her lewd behavior on RHOC was detrimental to their children. 

Upon hearing Vicki’s comment Heather was scandalized – so scandalized she waited months to reveal this to Tamra (on television, no less, cause they’re close like that!). Heather’s reason being Tamra was keeping her custody issues private. Until Tamra needed a convincing reason for her love of being Jesus real! 


David Beador mistress Nicole McMackin speaks out

Two days after being wildly called out by Shannon Beador at the USC football game, Nicole McMackin and her husband, Reed McMackin, are speaking out for the first time since Nicole was revealed to be David Beador‘s mistress.

In a joint statement issued to Entertainment Tonight, Reed and Nicole shared, “This has been an extremely trying time. We have done our best to work through our issues in private. Nicole understands she made a terrible mistake and there has been an incredible price paid by both families.” #ThankYouBravo


Meghan King Edmonds on Locale Magazine cover

Meghan King Edmonds didn’t begin her role as crusader for cancer, seeker of Truth! and Justice! on Real Housewives Of Orange County –  that has always been her destiny. It wasn’t her destiny to marry Jimmy Dad Jeans who knows her soul? 

Meghan recently celebrated some milestones on instagram. One being her family heritage as truth sleuth-ers, a glorious legacy Meghan revels in upholding. Meghan takes this responsibility very seriously, apparently! 


Shannon Beador

Shannon Beador has broken her silence regarding her run-in with David Beador‘s ex-mistress, Nicole McMackin, at the USC football game. Shannon admitted that she spoke to Nicole first (and told everyone within earshot that she slept with her husband) but insisted that she never grabbed Nicole‘s arm.

On one hand, Shannon conceded that Nicole and her husband, Reed, go to the USC games regularly, but on the other hand, she questioned why they decided to sit 10 rows in front of Shannon and David. “They could buy a seat anywhere,” bemoaned Shannon. “I was shocked to see that she was there, so this time I am not going to roll over. I said, ‘You have a lot of nerve being here!'”


RHOC Reunion Recap - Briana

What a weird Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion; filled with a whole lot of nothing with a few juicy bits stuffed in between, hanging out here and there, kind of like the weird smooches of flesh hanging over the cut-outs of Tamra Judge‘s very complicated dress. Seriously – Forever XXII is for 21 year olds!

Overall this has been a very weird season of Real Housewives Of Orange County. It’s almost Old Testament in its Biblical ruthlessness of judgement and excoriating righting of wrongs. It’s an eye-for-an-eye, or in this case a Jesus Barbie for a Jesus Jugs. 

Let’s just break down the important doo-dads before we get to Briana Culberson. Who Brooks is also threatening to sue! 


Alexis Bellino

Following part two of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, former housewife Alexis Bellino and actress Wendi McLendon-Covey were Andy Cohen‘s guests on Watch What Happens Live.

Right off the bat, Andy tells Alexis that her face looks different. Alexis says she hasn’t had any new surgery or fillers. Just less makeup.

About the email Alexis sent to Andy to share with Tamra Judge at the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Alexis shares, “I was never trying to judge. I immediately sent a Tweet to everybody and to Tamra saying I’m sorry that it came across as judgmental. I just, if you’re going to use Jesus Christ and say that, I wanted Tamra to back up her baptism with her actions. That was all I was trying to say. That was from my heart.”
