Cohen opens up about Rossi's possible return to the show.

on Nov 5, 2013 - The Dish0

The Internet has lit up with rumors in recent weeks that Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi won't be returning to the show next season. But what's the real scoop? Andy Cohen has the answer.

In the latest episode of Ask Andy, he tells his assistant Daryn, "We haven't released any information about who is returning to Orange County Housewives. We never really announce who is coming back and who isn't until the show is shot and the show is ready to premiere."

As for how to explain why past Housewives have exited from the show—Are they fired? Do they quit?—Andy says, "We usually leave it up to them to say how they departed.

Eagle-eyed viewers of Ask Andy may have also noticed that Andy has seemed somewhat snippy towards his assistant on recent episodes. What's the reason for his 'tude? "First of all, I love Daryn Carp. It's kind of our relationship," he says. "In my defense, the last few Ask Andy's we've shot have been on days where I have meetings back to back to back and I'm sitting at my desk and she's like, 'Come here, you're [filming Ask Andy] now.' I have been a little cranky, because it's in the middle of other things. The me on Watch What Happens Live is fun because it's Party Andy."

Gretchen is the only housewife thats says it like it is. Big mistake if you let her go.

You'd definitely lose me as a viewer of that show if Gretchen leaves. While she can be somewhat annoying; the other hateful women in the cast (read: Vicky and Tamra) are virtually unwatchable - they spew negativity and ugliness.

Let her go!  She has become a self-absorbed bore who has an over-inflated view of herself.  I turn the channel when she comes on the screen.

OMG Please let her go... I cant watch her talk. I'm not sure what kind of surgery she had done. She can barley move her lips. That's not the only thing. I just don't like her on the show. She thinks she is the bomb. She's not!! The only

beautiful HW on the show is Heather. She is beautiful inside and out !! The only thing Gretchen does "is stir the pot"

I hope you bring Gretchen back.  She is a major reason I have stuck with Orange County.
