The Real Housewives of Orange County’sGretchen Rossi had previously claimed her deceased fiance, Jeff Beitzel, didn’t leave her “millions and millions of dollars,” but according to TMZ, that is not the whole truth.
TMZ has uncovered Jeff Beitzel‘s trust, amended a month before his death, and it’s clear she actually pulled in a pretty penny. $2,500,000 million to be exact.
Gretchen was awarded $2,500,000 — some of which she collected from Beitzel’s life insurance policy. According to TMZ, some of Beitzel’s five ex-wives aren’t too happy with her inheritance either.
Jeff’s ex wife, Sharon, had previously lashed against Gretchen, explaining what she and her kids really thought of her.
Gretchen has however moved on with new boyfriend/OC ‘housewives’ serial dater – Slade Smiley.
The first one is being reported by ExtraTV. They claim the relationship between the duo is fake and only made for TV. According to Extra, Slade reportedly approached Gretchen with the idea of creating a showmance. They say his past relationships with other “Housewives” castmembers stirs up some questions about the veracity of his romance with Gretchen. OC fans might recall Slade was previously engaged to “Housewife” Joe De La Rose and then dated Lauri Waring.
The second rumor involves pregnancy. TheDirty website is reporting today that Gretchen might be pregnant with Slade’s baby. According to thedirty, this is based on some buzz around Orange County. The Dirty website has been pretty accurate on previous reportings about the OC Housewives, so this rumor might have some legs to it.
TMZ is reporting that Slade Smiley of The Real Housewives of Orange County, also known as Gretchen Rossi‘s current boyfriend, is being investigated for allegedly hitting someone during a party.
The Laguna Beach PD is looking into an altercation Slade allegedly got into at a friend’s birthday party back on July 15. The person accusing Slade of hitting him is allegedly none other than sleazeballJay Photoglou.
Jay is Gretchen’s ex, and has spent the last year leaking photos of he & Gretchen online, while trying his hardest to make himself famous. Gretchen has accused Jay of stalking her, and even filed a restraining order against Jay earlier this year. Can’t blame Slade for wanting to knock his teeth out, if the story is true.
According to TMZ, “there was a pushing and shoving match” that led to the other guy leaving the party. The hotel where the party was being held did not call the cops that night and neither did the other guy … until eight days later.
In other news, the sleaze known as Jay Photoglou refuses to go away. According to this report, he will be appearing on an E! network special about the Real Housewives franchise titled “So True So False Real Housewives Scandals.” And yeah, you guessed it, he will be there to talk about Gretchen. Sighs.
The show is suppose to be airing on E! on August 5th. I have been unable to find any information about it on E!’s website or the TV guide listings. Will be on the look out for it though.
The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi and beau, Slade Smiley, shared some quality time at the Silver Spoon Beach House in Malibu this weekend. Luckily for us, there just happened to be some Paparazzi waiting to snap some shots of them together.
The 5th season of The Real Housewives of OC is currently being filmed.
Bringing you the latest un-staged paparazzi shots of The OC Housewives’ star, Gretchen Rossi. When Gretchen is not busy being photographed randomly eating a corndog, she is evidently spending that time planning a garage sale in Costa Mesa, California with boyfriend Slade Smiley.
BuzzPhoto states that Gretchen spent time cleaning a Harley as she prepared for her garage sale in Los Angeles. That appears to be the same Harley that was gifted to her by her deceased ex fiance, JeffBeitzel, during last season’s finale of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Funny thing is that Tamra Barney’s son, Ryan reported to TheDirty website the following stating Gretchen might have purchased the Harley herself, and pretended it was a gift from Jeff.
“So last night im out in San Clemente at this bar called Ole’s with some friends and this guy and his girl spot me and start the normal chit chat about the show. Turns out Anthony who use to work for Harley Davidson in Irvine tells me “oh yeah I met the housewife Gretchen, i sold her that harley.” You know the same harley that “Jeff” surprised her with when they filmed at the Cliffs in Laguna Beach, well it turns out she set the whole thing up and bought the Harley herself.”
Sighs, still think both Tamra and her son really need to get a life. One that doesn’t involve Gretchen.
Every body’s favorite mean girl, Tamra Barney is at it again. The Real Housewives of OC’s star spoke to RadarOnline and had nothing nice to say about Gretchen Rossi.
Tamra slammed Gretchen’s claims of having a stalker and once again questions her moral character. “I was subpoenaed as a witness in a hearing involving…a restraining order she filed against her ex-boyfriend, Jay Photoglou,” Barney said. Gretchen had previously claimed Photoglou threatened the lives of she and her dogs, former Housewives cast member Slade Smiley, and vandalized her CA home.
Gretchen however failed to appear in court to address charges which led to them being dropped.
“I showed up in court only to find out the charges were dismissed after waiting 30 minutes. I find it strange for Gretchen, whom allegedly feared for her life because of this ‘stalker,’ wouldn’t even appear in Court for her hearing,” said Barney. “This speaks volumes about her character.” And what does your lame attempt at getting another woman “naked wasted” say about your character?
Tamra also goes on to claim Gretchen and her new boyfriend Slade Smiley drunk dialed her. ““A few weeks ago, [Rossi] and [Smiley] drunk-dialed me. Her conversation started out guarded with ‘why don’t you like me?’ She wanted to make amends, but she didn’t appear too sincere,” says Tamra.
Tamra goes on to insist she participated in the hearing in the spirit of honesty, and that Photoglou was “apologetic” for the waste of her time in court. Right Tamara.
The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi was photographed with her new beau aka Slade Smiley this weekend in West Hollywood, California.
Gretchen was also photographed as she selected a few outfits that she will use for the Gumball 3000 rally race where she will be raising money for the ‘Rossi Racing for the Cure’ charity for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of her late fiance Jeff Beitzel.
