Gretchen Rossi

Gretchen gives her take on each of member of the cast.

on Jun 14, 20110

I think the reunion depicts clearly how I feel about everything.  However I think a blog with just the facts is the best way to sum up how I feel about everything. 

Alexis

Fact: Jim and Alexis are still married. Tamra and Vicki are getting divorced

Fact: Jim and Alexis have a loving, traditional relationship. Vicki never seemed to be respectful or truly loving towards Donn from the footage we watched all these years, and Tamra stated that she and Simon had a very tumultuous relationship the entire time they were married.

Fact: Alexis and I are great friends, but we will not make excuses for each other's bad behavior, and we will call each other out. 

Vicki

Fact: She had a lot to say about my relationship with Jeff, but never met him and never spent any time with him and I together.

Fact: She never came to the hospital and obviously did not care that my fiancé was dying, however she expects everyone to have compassion and feel bad for her and her situation when she went to the hospital.

Fact: Jeff died, Vicki went back to work the next day.

Fact: I was the ONLY person that showed up in the hospital when Vicki was there.

Fact:  Her "concerned" friend Tamra stayed and drank at the bar with Fernanda after the fashion show and never even went to the hospital. When cameras went down she no longer seemed so concerned. 

Fact: Although Vicki hasn't always been nice to me, I actually like Vicki and wish her nothing but happiness and the best for her future.

Enjoy your great life, and never let anyone get you down!! xxx

We all know how jealous Tamara and Vicki is of your life and your looks. Keep doing your thing you have got it going on! These old women don't have anything on you and clearly cannot hide their jealousy!!!! Your the best/funnest/HOTTEST housewife so just ignore those women

Gretchen, you and Alexis are my favorite this season! But you are throwing Alexis under the bus just to befriend Tamara. Why do you feel the need to befriend her after what she said about you and Slade?!? Alexis had your back all season!?!!? Love Slade!!!!! Good for Slade, I am so glad he got even with that wicked Tamara and Vickie!!!! They both need to mind there own business. You should be proud of Slade, I am! TEAM SLADE!!!!!

Gretchen you are a sweet and gorgeous girl. But I am sorry for this but you have to get rid of Slate. He is a dead beat dad that does not pay child support and now you are at least the third housewife he has dated! He is not a real man! Please get rid of him he's a loser cause if I ever saw him he would be in trouble. Dump the zero and go with a hero you deserve it G!

I just want to know when EVER is a fashion show more important than a person being admitted to the hospital. Maybe you need to get priorities and realities straight! I am not saying you have not been through a lot but that is no excuse for your comments!

hey pretty lady!!!! u are amazing... i dont think u should have to defend anything in ur life to anybody!!! slade makes u happy rite? and if he is happy thats all that matters in life period, with or without cameras... i believe u to be the most realistic person on the show.. and when it comes to anybody talking about ur relationship with jeff, they should keep his name out of their mouths just out of respect for his passing instead of questioning yalls life together.. i love u so much!!! meanwhile, u should be proud of everything u do, the other ladies are all about money, plastic surgery, and what everybody else is doing.. u are a true REAL housewife on the show.. u talk about love and ur parents, and positive things... u deserve all the best that comes to u!!!

Hi Gretchen, the reunion has just aired on Australian television tonight. Like any reality TV show there are people that you take an instant liking too and those that you reserve your judgement for a little longer. I have to say that Slade is an extremely dignified gentleman, as this was clear during his interview and trust that you take Tamara as the low life that she is. She has portrayed herself as cheap, foul mouthed and wont find a better friend than Vicki as misery loves company. Hold your head high no need to look down at what's well below you.

Gretchen.... We L.O.V.E you!!! You're the BEST part of this show! We look forward to segments that include you...You are classy, genuine, confident, clever, and intelligent (just to name a few) --- You have many supportive fans for life...starting here in Seattle! LOVE YOU!! ;o)

Gretchen, in the words of Katt Williams, 'let your haters be your motivators'. If you don't have enough haters get you some more. And the next time that wrinkled hag squad decides to try to gang up on you. You can go ahead and smack the heck out of them. Don't worry we will still think you are the classy one. Keep pushin, Honey and Slade seems like he really loves you. I remember watching when Joe was on the show. He didn't love her as much as he seems to love you. She was a real gold digger and she admitted as much. Keep doin you, boo boo!

Gretchen, I agree with few others that you were great first show and showed that you are smart and classy and fun girl who really takes good care of yourself. Don't allow the likes of Tamra and Vicky to put you down and you really don't need to defend yourself that much. We can all make up our own minds. Just be yourself and realise that people do love you for who you are. But got to say I loved your comment to clueless Lynne that just because you pop out a child between your legs that does not make you an expert on being a parent.

Well I do not know if you actually read all this, but I feel like your blog is entirely too devoted to defending yourself. You did not need to go into every gritty detail of the season, you are acting soooo petty. Show some class and rise above Tamra's behavior. You are acting like her, if not worse. You claim all the other women are hypocrites when you retaliate in the same manner. I loved you the first season you appeared and now I find you intolerable.

Gretchen- I think you are awesome! You were a little catty this past season, but you are honest, FUNNY, and very likeable. And of course you are stunning! Best of luck with your business and i hope next season you don't even entertain Tamra's behavior and comments. You are classier than her so let it show to the others. Ignore her and while you are at it, stay away from Vicki. I don't care what anyone says- she is mean, controlling, critical, and just plain crotchedy. You are too fun to be around her.

I can't stand you but I have to give you a HUGE thumbs up for the comment in Texas about the other women's list. Shallow!! Your so right!! You being with Slade actually kinda shows the people that maybe you weren't with Jeff for his money. I may start to like you yet :)

i love the show and think that you handle yourself very well the phrase mean girls dont have a look in when it comes to tamara she is the biggest hypocrite ever on tv it was obvious from day one that she wanted rid of simon and went out her way to make him look bad but it never worked she is so spitefull with her tongue you shouldnt need to prove anything about your life she will always stick it to someone as she is so messed up she needs to inflict on someone its called dumping i used to think that about vikki but seen her in a new light she is pulling away from tamaras nasty crap i hope geena files on tamaras as shed be the first to file on someone and that should be assault i hope you come back next season and dont take any crap from the hottest housewife lol so funny love from scotland

1. Glad you will be back for season 7, otherwise I would stop watching 2. Loved seeing you have a good time in San Antonio. 3. I like the way you have manners by giving compliments to the chef and thanking the concierge - and that you eat frois gras like a lady and NOT pretend to gag! As a Texan living Zürich, I was so embarrassed by the other ladies' restaurant behavior. 4. Good job for not giving in to Tamra and Vicki. Keep up the good work!

Hey Gretchen:D

Well we have only just got to see th latest season in the uk soo sad its finished now:( I just want to say I think you have the right attitude regarding Tamra andif i was you i wouldn't even want an apology from her as i really dnt think she would mean it. She thought she was the hottest housewife intown till you came along and now the green eye is out jealousy is a terrible thing but its ripping out of Tamra big time!!!!! lolol I feel she should really pay more attention to her own life and stop actin like a randy teenager on tv i mean come on she a mother!!!! I hope you do well with your handbag range and make up:D and al the best to you and slade xx

I have been watching RHOC while on maternity leave and just finished watching season 6. Where's the fun? Everyone is so mean to each other. I think what Tamra has done to you and Slade is crazy. Maybe she should concentrate on her family and not everyone else's. What you did at her party was mean too but we all know you are done taking crap from Tamra and the old housewives. Hopefully season 7 we see everyone behaving.

Hey Gal, Dont wori about the blond ex-wife bullies.... they dont know nothing.... but to divorce and shame themselves to everyone. I like you, But marriage is about Love.... I married a poor man, he had no money to his name. And now we are average, But I am happy, and NO money in the world will make up for my happiness. If I lost my man today, money will not make up for it. And my husband pays child support for two of his kids... But I support us, and even tho it is not millions.. I am happy, hes my best friend. He is someone who has my back, through thick and thin.... I've been married for 6 years. Take care....

Real Housewives isn't my usual sort of viewing program but for some reason I'm hooked. We're a bit slow getting up to date in the UK so I've just seen season 6. Frankly from the onset the only woman who stood out as genuine was you yourself Gretchen. I had some regard for Vicki at one point and considered her reasonably intelligent till she allied herself to Tamra, a woman desperately in need of therapy and certainly not very stable.

I admit the program is purely speculative but watching a level headed, enormously pretty and highly talented young woman like you handle yourself and show not only strength of character but levels of humanness lacking in the others is lovely. You seem to come from a good family, have good values and a good brain, you'll succeed in everything in life. As a mum with grown daughters I don't think Slade is the best thing to happen to you. but your obviously sensible and whatever you choose will be the right decision. As for Tamra, frankly she's a madwoman, attention seeking and not worth a moment consideration. Carry on being you Gretchen, like your other fans I look forward to seeing you go from strength to strength finding your ultimate happiness and success.

LOVE THIS BLOD POSE (ASSIDE FROM THE TAMRA SECTION)

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR THOUGHTS ON HER

YOU HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO BE THE MOST GENUINE PERSON THROUGH THIS SERIES

Pandora from England

Dear Gretchen, I am so glad that you stood up for yourself against Tamra who should mind her own business and not stick her nose into your and Slade's private affairs. Tamra is really a nasty piece of work and when Slade responded to her accusations, she flounced out of the room and had the audacity to telephone Michelle, trying to stir up more trouble. The woman has no class and is vulgar and it is showing on her face. Ofcourse, she needs to apologise to you as well as to Slade but that will not happen because Tamra does not know any better. Ignore her Gretchen and enjoy your life and I wish you every success with your business venture.

You're gorgeous and dont worry about what those other loser housewives say about you..they're just jealous that they dont look so good and can't hold as much class as you.

Keep doing what you're doing! xxx

Hello Gretchen. I am an avid viewer of the show in the UK and you are without a doubt my favourite housewife. It is obvious that you and Slade are very much in love and i think it is outrageous the way the other women on the show go out of their way to make Slade and you look bad. Tamra has no right making herself busy with his x partner regarding child support. It must of taken Slade real courage to admit he is broke on national television and my partner agrees. I will miss watching you all every day and i hope you are all back soon. You are an amazing lady and don't let anyone tell you any different and i wish you and Slade love and happiness for the future.

Hi guys, I have been an avid fan ever since the show started some years ago. Having watched how these ladies work, I knew from the get go that Gretchen would be isolated by them...Tamra and Vicki have been jealous of Gretchen since they set eyes on her...so much so that it highlighted the ugliness in them which was embarassing to watch......It's good viewing watching them dig bigger holes for themselves .....and to use Tamra's words Karma comes to those deserving of it.....and still she just doesn't get lol

Natty Burridge

Gretcheeeeeen :D i love you!!!!

Listen.... your an amazing woman and a big inspiratrion to me and many other people, so ignore Tamra shes just jealous that your a beautiful person inside and out. She must really hate herself and her life because she has so much hate and anger in her and then vents it out onto other people especially you which just is not fair at all!!!

Don't let anyone bring you down, ignore the rumours and the hear say and if people wanna spread crap and try to bring you down then let them try because they obviously don't have anything better to do in their lives so let them carry on and you just keep doing what your doing and being happy within yourself and with the man you love :)

I would love to have a friend like you because your personality is just like mine so i think we would get on wicked and have soooo much crazy fun times!! I live in the UK and seeing where you live is so beautiful, you have such lush weather all the time, i would love to live there its like a dream place. I'm a massive fan of cocktails and would love to come party with you, maybe have 1 or 10 cocktails that would be fun :D would love you to come over to the UK for a visit, maybe have an exhibition for your bags and make up line as it would be awesome to meet you in person and have your products for sale over here!!!!

Anyways.... keep being you because your amazing just the way you are!!

Best wishes for the future (and hope to see you on another show) xxNattyxx

Gretchen, amongst the housewives you are in a class of your own. I love your honesty and the fact that you do not take yourself too seriously and can admit when you are wrong and that you're not perfect, who is? Do not change you are not doing anything wrong the other women are so jealous of you it brings out their flaws, and claws, even more. I had my reservations about Mr Smiley but I guess we do not see everything only the edited highlights and maybe he really does love you, I hope so. If he's the one, and you above all should know, then go for it Have your babies and make a life together but make sure it's for life ok. Good Luck Gretchen.

Hi I live in England and have watched the last two seasons of the show. They are very entertaining i must say! I personally think that you are by far the most grounded of all the ladies and dont naturally look for the confontation.

You also have the strongest relationship of them all, and i take my hat off to Slade for admitting he has financial problems at the moment, that couldnt of been easy and people should be aware of that, not everybody has money all the time, and they can lose it just as quick as they gained it so you two shouldnt be judged because next year it couold be any of them.

Anyway i hope you can email me back, id appreciate it! Lisa

Your show has just come to London a few months ago and i used to love it but now i only watch it for you (Gretchen) and Peggy, Unfortunately Tamara reminds me of my mother as she is also false, unhappy in herself and when given a dose of her own medicine she attacks (not me but people who questioned her on her break up to my Father) like you i pity her and but i hope she has a moment of self realization and decides to take a positive direction.

Also, I would like to say make sure you follow your heart and hold tight.. If Slade is in your heart forget everyone else and go with him if you are ment to be i'm sure all your problems will leave your life along the line. I myself was bought up in a Fairy tale my parents treated and still do us like princes but the last for years have been bit of a struggle, i left home at 16 to be with someone and we ended up homeless, hungry and unhappy i then went home to my parents to find they was breaking up and that's why i went under the radar for so long my partner then went to prison my mum left and my Dad kept us as my Mother is just like Tamara and he knew as well as we did that we'd be safer with him, i then met someone new(well we have seen each other around for years and i thought i'd give him ago as my last relationship was negative and i wanted to experience a positive one, I fell for him like you did for Jeff and then i was looked after and experienced a bit of a whirlwind he then died last Christmas of a shock heart attack in his kitchen at 20, he didn't have his heating on and it was snowing outside so he has a low chances of survival, the next evening after him not coming to work one of his engineer buddies went over to see if he was okay and found him died and it broke my heart as i was out clubbing at the time, so i know what it's like to lose someone special but i know how important it is to move on so against everyone's wishes i'm going back with my ex when he's out of prison and despite what anyone else may say i'm standing by him like you did with Slade.

Your so fun to watch yet inspirational (Without sounding wet).

I know with Faith and Love my Relationship will work out as i know yours will.

Anyways keep up the good work in business and on the show (If your doing another series, If not maybe you should have The Gretchen Show lol)

Take Care :)

I'm team Tamra, Peggy and Vicki because you say that you don't mean to offend people and stuff but then you ruined Tamras party with the 'evil eye' comment but then got upset when Tamra made a joke in Alexis's party that is what you call hypocritical!
