As Gretchen Rossi is finding out, even after you leave The Real Housewives of Orange County, you inevitably get dragged right back into the drama! This week it was reported that Slade Smiley offered to help out with Jim Bellino‘s lawsuit against Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador. Gretchen Rossi is vehemently denying the initial reports that claimed they were the ones who went to Jim (according to papers Jim filed in the case) and asked if they could assist by testifying about their own experiences with Tamra.
Gretchen took to Facebook to share that she felt compelled to share her side of how this thing actually came about. “First of all Slade and I were contacted by Jim, not the other way around. Even though we had not spoken to him since the show many yrs [sic] ago, we had no bad blood with him. He knew we had been in a similar case for years and had won a judgment against the individual who perpetuated those lies against us.”
Sometimes the real drama happens away from the camera in the Real Housewives franchise. Case in point, Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino’s ex Jim Bellino is suing Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador for $1 million dollars in response to comments they made about him during a podcast interview.
As if that was not absurd enough, former Real Housewives of Orange County cast members Gretchen Rossi and her fiance Slade Smiley volunteered to testify against Tamra and Shannon, even though they have absolutely nothing to do with this case. At all. Although Gretchen now claims they were subpoenaed to do so.
Even though she is no longer a Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, it doesn’t mean that Alexis Bellino is free of the drama. Well, at least via association thanks to her ex Jim Bellino. Jim is suing Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador for “defamation” thanks to some comments they made on a podcast.
The podcast itself didn’t really make major headlines, but Jim himself keeps dragging this whole thing out and bringing more attention to Tamra and Shannon’s comments than they originally received. Jim isn’t the only former cast member looking for attention. Cue, Slade Smiley and his fiancee, former Orange County Housewife, Gretchen Rossi. They decided to involve themselves in this whole mess. Yes, this does seem random, but it really is not surprising that these two are entangled in this.
New York Fashion Week is not just for the clothing designers and models. Some of the Real Housewives also turned up to check out the looks. New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga were in attendance and turning it out with their looks.
Teen Mom stars Catelynn Baltierra (who is expecting a third baby!), Amber Portwood, Cheyenne Floyd, Bristol Palin, & Maci Bookout all gathered in the Big Apple as well.
Newly engaged couple Lala Kent and Randall Emmett posed for a selfie together. Lala’s Vanderpump Rules costar Ariana Madix shared a photo with her mom and grandmother. Dallas Housewife Brandi Redmond shared a photo hugging her daughter.
The Real Housewives are constantly talking trash about each other and even some of the women’s husbands. Most of the time people can handle this since it is what’s expected. Alexis Bellino’s very recent ex-husband Jim Bellino is not one of those people. He cannot get over some jokes/accusations that Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador told at his expense during a podcast appearance.
He didn’t just subtweet them or go on a social media rant. He took things to another level by filing a $1 million dollar lawsuit against Shannon and Tamra. Yes, you read that correctly: ONE MILLION DOLLARS for talking shit. Could you imagine if everyone in the Real Housewives franchise was that lawsuit happy!?
Is it possible for a child to have his or her first day of school without being photographed by parental units? Not in 2018- especially for the children of reality TV stars.
Most parents already post a lot about their offspring, so of course, reality TV moms and dads are going to be extra excited to share their kids’ milestone occasions on social media.
Jim and Alexis Bellino‘s divorce was finalized earlier this week and we shared about Jim’s part of the settlement: retaining two of their mansions that are worth about $7 million. Don’t despair for Alexis, she’s making out pretty well herself.
In documents obtained by The Blast, the former Real Housewives of Orange County star’s piece of the settlement is nothing to sneeze at!
Well that was fast! Just two months after filing for divorce, Former Real Housewives of Orange County stars Jim and Alexis Bellino have finalized their divorce already!
