Who knew Gretchen Rossi was such a bad ass? "I kind of think I should have been a race car driver sometimes because I have a led foot!" the Real Housewives of Orange County star confesses to Real Housewives Daily Dose. And she's not talking about doing 70 in a 65.
"I was in a rally called the Gumball 3,000 and I was racing the Prince of Dubai on Highway 15 on the way to Vegas, and we got pulled over for 147 MPH," she says. "The Prince had Diplomatic Immunity (which needless to say I was not happy about) and I got the ticket for 116! The cop thankfully did not impound my car and did not site me for reckless driving because he knew we were part of the rally." Before you give her a lecture on safety, Slade's lady explains, "In all honesty, when he tagged us we were not around any other vehicles so we were not endangering anyone else."
Like Joe Gorga, Gretchen's not one to back down from a dare. "At the end of the day, I am an athlete who loves a challenge, especially with men," she says, so bring it. "I will play any sport and I am sometimes better than the guys at it. I grew up riding dirt bikes and love to get dirty and play in the mud! People always see me in dresses and all dolled up, but I love to go camping with no makeup and explore nature! Who knows, maybe one season you will see me camping or dirt bike riding!"
